    Well, I was thinking of getting software like this one
    http://www.download.com/USB-Audio-ASIO-Driver/3000-2120_4-10066659.html?tag=lst-2&cdlPid=10561691

    Seems pretty straightforward... although I'd rather spend 55 dollars elsewhere. I'm more worried that an 1/8" adapter plugging into a crappy laptop standard mic input is going to kill the sound. I guess I'd just have to try it.

    If you can use the USB (via an interface for example) do it, it will be much better than using the input on your laptop. It sounds to me like you are considering somehow plugging your preamp directly into the USB port... how in the world would that work???? and no, i don't think (if you could do that) that the computer would be able to use it, as it wouldn't have any drivers/protocol for it.

    as for XLR vs. 1/4", if it's an unbalanced 1/4" connection, you will lose a lot of signal, so XLR is better in that case.

    yes, but your definition of "appropriate levels" are much different than mine, as well as the rest of the industry. From what you have said -12 to -18db peak levels are ok to record at. This is utterly untrue in my opinion.

    Satoration - if you mean levels generally peaking between 0 and -5db on your peak meter, then yes your statement is perfectly correct. If you agree that -12 to -18 peak levels are ok, then I would have to disagree.

    I am surprised that there was so much debate about such basic matter. Just make shure it does not clip and record at appropriate values

    lol well what am I supposed to do if people are telling me I'm wrong when I'm telling them they don't need to record as hot as they possibly can? You basically just summed up my whole argument.

    Just got myself an Art Studio Preamp www.amazon.com/ART-Tube-Studio-Mic-Preamp/dp/B0002E50MC/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_3
    And an Audix I5 Mic www.amazon.com/Audix-i-5-I-5-Instrument-Microphone/dp/B0002IHNA0/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1213211060&sr=8-1

    I'm planning on putting this through my laptop, using Audacity for now to record and edit but hopefully moving on to something more streamlined. What I'm wondering is this: what would be the cleanest hookup to my laptop? Through the default 1/8" mic imput on my laptop, or through the USB 1.0/2.0 in the back? I'm not sure if PnP would work here or is even applicable, or if the computer would pick up the USB port as another mic in through Audacity/whatever. Although it looks like it should be cleaner than straight analog? Would appreciate clear-up on this.

    I also have the option of feeding into the preamp either XLR or 1/4". Is there a difference in sound quality?

    Normalize the Preview and leave the waveform as is.

    That way you can hear the sound and at the sametime know thats its either a very loud or low sound by just looking at the waveform.

    The current way sucks because if I'm up at 4 in the morning going through some sounds,I totally hate having to constantly adjust the volume every time I encounter a really low or ear splitting sound.

    Hey karla,

    How about a hooker that's a bit past her? sell before date. http://www.anumber1.com/mike/heymister.mp3

    Haha,..

    i'm sorry about the delay (factor) we're working out some small problems dealing w/3d Blender 2.5 and Carrara pro 5. That was definitely a great session and there no reasons why we can't fit this in and thanks again alphahog! Hopefully by next week we'll have this ready for you... :wink:

    Today I went to the dentist with my oldest daughter who had to have a tooth pulled for the braces. I brought my recording equipment ( nothing fancy, just a MD recorder) because I wanted to put some dentist sounds on my website as the sound of the day. But the dentist refused! He thought it was unethical to record a medicalvent. So my sound of today wasn't the dentist but actually became a link to the freesound site :lol:

    have a search for Commander Tom
    http://www.discogs.com/artist/Commander+Tom
    -he was one of the originators of the hoover sound.
    -Noom records specialized in that style of techno/trance

    also check 'The Sound of the Hoover'
    http://www.discogs.com/release/168388
    -a good compilation of that genre of techno/trance

    John the Dentist is also a big name in hoover trance... good dj too
    http://www.discogs.com/artist/Jon+The+Dentist

    Also look at a genre called 'UK Hardhouse' this is basically super high energy house- with some hoover & trance elements. Some good stuff in there for you also.

    While you're at it- check out Chris Liberator, Hardfloor, D.A.V.E. The Drummer for some great acid trance.

    happy hunting

    looking for the sound of music stopping as the turntable is unplugged or stopped. You know that quick-slowing-down-to-nothing sound.
