Well here is my highlight to the whole year I would say. Been waiting for awhile for this.


Mixer on the right and sequencer on the left, way cool!

you use SX too? nice one.

I've been looking into getting dual monitors for a while now. It'd make workflow so much easier.

Cool for sure!

Sure does Max. yeah been producing for a number of years now.
Since I can work no more (except from home) I have to while away the hours somehow and so I produce music.

Yeah the duals are something that I have wanted for awhile now and they also work nice with PS. All the tool panels on one side and a full sized 1280x1024 canvas to work on with no tools in the way.
It is a pitty that the right hand panel is only a 15" (left is a17"), but I was surprised that the vid card saw the differant sizes and applied the correct resolution to both.
1280x1024 on the left and 1024x768 on the right. Way cool!

It is personal Matt sorry.
yeah love sponge baby that little yellow cube is cool.. stupid but cool.
I only whatched a few shows of it and it cracked me up and then all of a sudden the kids are buying me all this SB stuff.
I have SB calendars, orderments, shower stuff, put it this way.. if there is something that is put out as SB then more than likely I have it. LOL

at work we use 2 - 3 monitors per station with dreamweaver / browser / outlook normaly taking up these screens. I am used to the 3 monitor setup and like a spoilt child i always could do with another 2.

LOL @ David.
My CPU is water cooled.
The case is also pimped out with sidepanel windows and neons and a lava lamp.
The water cooling is why I never bought another monitor and just made do with the old 15" panel. I am getting another 17" early next year hopefully.

I use to have 5 fans in this thing and about a month ago I bit the bullet and bought the water cooling unit and installed it. Now I just have Two fans, one for the radiator (which is really quiet) and one on my vid card. The cooling unit did come with a water block for that as well, but was too chicken to put it on as the card cost me more than the CPU.

My setup is mainly for music production. I love doing that and if I may say so my self, I am pretty good at it.
Have a listen. ('http://creative.audio.webthings.org')

not bad tunes err.. sorry they are really really bad (bad is good right?)

what package do you use for editing?

I play the AXE (thats guitar ) and have dabbled with cakewalk and cubase
recently purchased Sibelius which writes notation as you play but had little time to mess around with it.

Cakewalk! (chunder).. if you are meaning Sonar there.. well no way would I use just a piece of junk.
Cubase SX 3 is what I use and it rules. At this stage the only hardware I have is a M-Audio MIDI keyboard, but hope to get a hardware synth and mixer soon (when 'er in doors will lighten up). But for now the VSTs will have to do.
