Is this the right place to ask bout Laptop music production?

Q: Is this the right place to ask bout Laptop music production?

Okay, I make music. I am a laptop producer. I'm not sure its even eligible to ask here, but its the only forum site I've registered with.So, um -I need help. I need websites that provides free plugins to make dubstep sounds, like growls and stuff. Both vst's and vsti's are welcome, but it has to be free.If you think there's not much better free dll plugins, gimme the paid ones too, but generally not preffered.Plus, some sort of drum machine. There are a lot I know, but lacks the recording/exporting feature.Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A:Laptop recommendations for music production and hi-res video viewing.

I'm not going to recommend a model, just make a couple of comments. I have a 17" laptop and like the large view on it. I write/perform/produce music as well, so I don't know if I'd put money in a separate laptop soundcard. The cards you mentioned are not pro-level cards... you may want to look into a separate usb sound device from Focusrite, Tascam, or Avid. You can still use the internal card for portability, but for multi-I/O and midi recording and high fidelity you want a good audio interface. Look on zzounds.com, musiciansfriend.com, sweetwater.com or other music equipment sites.

I have a budget of 1'500$ without the monitor. I know that i would need a good processor, good motherboard, SSD and 32 Go RAM. the computer should be silent if possible.

A:Music Production Computer-Performance

Hello Dozer, and welcome to the vista forums,

the Background settings on windows OS is more related to desktop Vs Server set-ups but as the statement made on the site is basically true then it may well be that running in Background Process mode may improve performance in your specialised role.

I would have to assume that the statement made is from their experience but as each system is unique the only way to truly know in your case, is to give it a try change the setting and use it for a while and see if there is a perceivable improvement.

The correct way would of course be to create a benchmark for your machine. EG process a particular file both with and without this setting and compare time taken, but I have found that often it is the perceived performance that really matters in these things

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156


And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...01314 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128421

Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.

In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

Here is a test report done on a few of these boards at Techspot; http://www.techspot.com/review/259-intel-h55-motherboard-shootout/

hi.. i'm a music producer... and my main tool is Reason 4 software from PropellerHeads... and i want to buy a new PC... and my dilema is the CPU..
which one do you think i should buy.. the new 45nm E8400 or the old Q6600??
the problem with Reason is that it's not biult for multi core CPUs so i guess the E8400 should do the job better... but recently i saw some tests with Reason running on a Q6600 and i was amazed...
really dunno what to do here. and my mainboard of choice is the Gigabyte G33-DS3R... hope someone could help me on this one!

thanks in advanced!!
 

A:Intel E8400 or Q6600 for music production?

To Err Is Human....To Forgive Is Not in the Nature of Computers...

Either the 8400 or the 6600 should give more than adequate performance with music files. (By "more than adequate", I mean spectacular). I don't want to overstep my knowledge here, but I'm guessing that music files don't present the same degree of difficulty as 1920 X 1200 High Def Video encoding. Which I'm sure software engineers are currently rushing to adapt applications for quad (or more), core use. Point being you couldn't go wrong with either CPU.
BIOS updating can be a tricky and risky affair. That being said, I would check which BIOS version is present in the Motherboard before making a decision on which CPU to buy. The E8400 would absolutely require a BIOS update, whereas the Q6600 might not. IMHO, the plug and play part always wins.
Then there's always plan "C": wait for a 45nm quad CPU.

I found this to be quite interesting, I have Nero 6 which is not at least 3 years old. When I use the"advanced analysis" function in "Recode" (essentially "DVDshrink") on my machine with a Pentium Dual Core E2200, task manager is telling me that BOTH cores are operating at 100%. I didn't think that this version of Nero was even written for dual core CPUs, but there you have it, clipping along at up to 1000 FPS, firing on both barrels!

A:Advice For Future Purchase:Audio Card For Music Production

I have a Recording Studio (using Sonar X3 Producer). The general consensus on most recording forums is that a PC sound card is crap for recording and low latency. You are better off considering a "real" recording interface device. The USB connected units seem to have the edge now, with Firewire sort of becoming pass?. USB devices generally have lower latency too.

My main recording interface unit is a Roland Octa-Capture. It is 8 analog input channels, but there are units with less input channels. The Focusrite Scarlett units seem to be gaining in popularity too. Presonus is headquartered in Louisiana and sells recording hardware and software.

The "gearslutz" forum would be a good place to look or ask your questions. Gearslutz.com

A:Delete Toshiba Music Place Places

This is a lot simpler than most are suggesting.
I got on to Toshiba because I had the same problem on a window 8 laptop. I was looking all over the registry for 'music place' and even after \i followed the registry edit advise the icon still came back. 

There reply was so simple I laughed. 
Simply uninstall the 'Toshiba places icon utility' and all your troubles are over.

No need to edit the registry, just go into the control panel - programs and find it listed there, right click and uninstall.

So simple...
All the annoyance because they didn't call it 'music place'

Hope this helps others with the same issue

Hi I've been reading threads for hours on Windows 7 installs but I can't find a specific answer for my scenario.

I am looking at buying a couple of Toshiba laptops that have a pre-installed version of Windows 7 Home Premium. I already own a Microsoft Action Pack which gives me 10 Windows 7 Professional licences. I want to be able to upgrade the OS on the laptops from the Home Edition to the Professional Edition. Because the laptops are already setup with all the toshiba software drivers etc installed I am reluctant to do a clean install. Is it possible to use the product key from my Action Pack to upgrade the laptops without having to wipe them and start again?

I'm not concerned about loosing the home premium licence I just want to upgrade to Professional Edition with minimum fuss.

While I was playing a game and pressed the control button (Ctrl) and the 'J' button, they both randomly popped off. I tried looking for some videos that would help to me put them back properly.

The two clips are still on the keyboard for 'J' and just the key itself is out. When I push down on it to get it back in place, the bottom half is lanky. The top clips on but the bottom doesn't.

This is for my laptop HP Compaq 6730s

A:How can I put my laptop keys back into place?

Sometimes you have to press in the middle of the key to get to snap into place.

Hi!

I have my own computer repair shop, and there's a dude I know who despise me for no apparent reason. He has much more IT certifications than I do and I'm wondering if he is spying on me or sniffing my IP packets using a customer's PC which he could use as a "trojan horse" inside my house. He can get pretty dirty as he is known to have done so a couple of times!

If there are preventive practices that I could use it will be awesome if you share some!

Hello,

I have Dell Inspiron N4050 Laptop with Integrated Webcam and running Windows 7 Ultimate edition - 64 bit..
I normally call using Gmail's Call phone service. I want to setup so that I can use Internal microphone in laptop to transmit my voice and hear the incoming call voice using external speakers.

**** I normally keep external speakers connected to laptop for listening to music, but whenever I have to make a call, I have to remove the speaker cables and connect headphone cables in audio jack. So, I am looking up for solution to do make audio/video calls using external speakers and without needing to connect headphones to transmit my voice to caller.

Could you help me with the setup please?
Thanks a lot!

A:Use external speakers in place of headphone and Laptop's microphone

Short answer, no. Because of the feedback problems, most users use a separate combination headset/mic to minimize feedback problems. Otherwise you will have to manually change things each time you speak or listen.

Is there anything at all I can do to make it look better? It does have an SVGA port on it but would just changing the S-Video to SVGA really make it so its not squished and fuzzy?

please what can i do?

A:hello please i place magnet near my hard drive on laptop but its not working again

It would have had to be a very powerful magnet to erase the drive -- more likely is a coincidental drive failure.
Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove and reinstall the hard drive -- if it's then still not seen, replace it.
If you need further information, we'll need to know what model system (i.e., Inspiron N5110, 5523, etc.) you have.

My desktop computer came originally with windows me. Several years ago I got windows xp professional version that gradually was updated by Microsoft to sp3. Few weeks ago my pc didn't want to boot, probably I got virus, and I couldn't find my windows xp disc. I turned up entire house but it never showed up. I bought online another disc ? windows xp sp2 home edition. I loaded it to my pc but Microsoft tells me that coa is invalid. I entered the production key that come with this disc several times and each time I got invalid key. Is there any help with the production key? Is there a way to activate my windows xp disc? Please help.

A:production key

Do a fresh install of XP Home Sp2. This will wipe any personal files from your computer so backup any files you can't live without first. Put then XP CD in the drive and reboot the computer. Boot off of the XP CD. You may need to boot into Setup (Bios) and set the Boot Priority to be CD rom drive first boot device. You should see the message Press Any Key to Boot From CD. This starts the Windows installation. When you get to the Partition Information, Format the Windows Partition and Install Windows.
What is the make and model # of your computer? After installation go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager any devices with Yellow flags need to have drivers installed. Go to the computer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in your make and model # and download any drivers you require from the Device Manager.

You're right- it doesn't need them
If one existed, it would be in the form of an extension. I just did some rooting around, and did not find any worth noting.

Hello aletrick21,

Did you press F1 during the boot process(as soon as you power on the pc).

Make sure it is in fact F1 (some pc's use <Del> or F2 ).

Once able to get to BIOS you can change the boot order to cd-rom.

Hi guys once again I need your sound and great advise. I want to put my music on a laptop which would enable me to play from the laptop rather than CD's. I usually "jam" Caribbean music on the weekend at parties in the "Big Apple" of New York. Give me the full in and out. I just want to set up my laptop and start "jamming".

How to speed up production Pal MeGUI...?
How can I production more quickly by MeGUI ...??

Please help

A:How to speed up production Pal MeGUI?

1. A (very brief) google search tells me this has something to do with video encoding. Afaik this is where those expensive CPUs come into play, you can't really do anything to fix this outside of making sure you're not doing something else heavy in the background or buying a better CPU. What CPU is that in your specs, you just posted what appears to be clockspeed. A core-i running at 3GHz is nice but a Celeron at the same speed will definitely be a problem.

Also, 2GB of system RAM is low for an x64 installation, you want to bump it up to 4GB.

2. I don't understand your second question about Almijoa.

(Redstone 3 is still on the paper but will complete till the end of 2017 so we will get it togheter with future Surface phones)

Hi,
I'm producing a DVD for a local TV station arts programming channel. One of the requirements is that "the submitted DVD must have a minimum of 10 seconds of black before the actual video/audio begins." I'm using Windows Movie Maker to produce the DVD. I could not find anything in the Help windows to address this. Using the effects I can "Fade in, from black", but I could not figure out how to make it last 10 seconds. Also, I would like the end to fade out instead of just cutting off.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you!
 

A:DVD format/production question...

One possible way, its extremely high tech so pay close attention (not!). Open Paint and bucket fill the canvas with the color black. Save and open the photo of black in WMM and drag it to the edit line set to Timeline, then grab the edge of the item and drag it out to 10 seconds or maybe 9.5. Then put your video next to that and use your fade in effect on the video.

I assume there is a fade out to put at the end and you could append a black photo sequence there as well.

Not sure if anyone knows anything about these sort of scanners, but I'll give it a shot...

We currently utilize a M4097D Fujitsu scanner. We are looking into purchasing another scanner as backup/auxilary unit. The one we currently utilize goes through an average of 7500 pages/day (5 days/week). The one we would like to get would be used part time and for department projects on occasion.

The existing one has a flatbed that never gets used, so we'd like to get one without that. Also, it has a IPC4 card I believe, is that something we need? We run at 200dpi when creating batches of PDFs, so I don't believe it would make much of a difference without it.

Anyone have suggestions? Input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I am kinda new to the whole world of video production but *stars in eyes* would like to be able to produce short films that ideally can mix animation with live action. What I have in my head as a dream piece of software is something that will allow me to see frame by frame what is on a piece of film footage so that I can add a layer of animation over the top.

I've been googling for a while now and can't seem to get a handle on the right starting point (i.e. which software, preferably freeware) to use

Can anyone help?

When I am not connected to the internet, no problems with Solitare. But, when connected, the X Sol "This program has performed an illegal operation.."message comes up every time preventing play. It says SOL caused a general production fault in module SOL.EXE at 0001:0000060d. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times with no success. I took it in to the computer business where it was purchased and they couldn't correct it either. What else can I do? I've had my computer 2 years and it used to "play" fine. Help!
 

A:Solitare production fault???

Production fault? No. Protection fault? Probably.

Anyway, Saturn, click on this and scroll down to Article III and then under that, read and take the steps in the part called Periodic Hard Drive Maintenance.

Let us know if you still have the problem after that.

Yello, I'm planning on building a new pc with audio production in mind, but not as the sole use. Thing is I have no idea what mobo to go for and to get dual core or not. Here is my general plan:

AMD CPU
Main drive with Debian.
Secondary drive with two XP partitions, one dedicated to audio work, one for games/anything that won't run on Linux.
1 drive for storage.
M-Audio 2496
Nvidia 7 series, undecided.

I hear some mobo chipsets can be incompatible with pro audio cards. I suppose the main question is what chipset to get. Anybody know anything on the subject?

Hey, I noticed the link on the site for a product called Registry Mechanic and so I checked it out. Everything sounded good, and I'm one of those paranoid cyber geeks who has to have every security and performance hole covered, so I tried out the trial version and ran a scan on my computer. Well, it found 160 errors and I wanted some opinions from others who have used this program. I have had no problems with my system lately, so I don't feel a desperate need to purge every little error in my registry unless it will help my system performance any. Thanks for any replies!

A:think'in bout.....reformatting drive?

Restoration and persistent virus cure

Hi there, Well the Virus you cant get rid of is probably in your system restore folder so it gets reactivated every time the system reads the system restore folder. could also be in your paging file. You need to use an offline tool like Mini pe xt. this is an operating system that runs from a cd or dvd. use the Comander chich is usually the last icon in the taskbar. delete system restore folder, delete pagefile.sys empty the recycle bin. use Avast tools to clean up registry and internet traces, then use the vopt defragmenter. all are on the disk and will look like a bit like windows so its user friendly. then use shutdown option (eject cd's and reboot) remove the cd/dvd. windows will boot and hopefully your system will be fresh again.

find the software Mini PExt on www.9down.com or use google and search "Download Mini PExt).

the new AMD RV670 chip is suppose to have better balance of power, price, and power consumption. it will have the same chip structure as the RV600 but will support much more, running at X10.1 and powering HDMI and HDPC.

the two available versions will be called Gladiator and Revival. the gladiator will have 512 MB GDDR4 graphics memory. the GPU clocked all the way to 825MHz, and the memory frequency of 2.4GHz. On the otherharnd the Revival will have 256/512MB GDDR3 graphics memory, and the GPU frequency of 750MHz and memory frequency of 1.8GHz.

overall I think this is the next gen. graphics card for those hard core gamers

what do you think?

I've personally never have seen or tryed the current gen radeons (2000's) but from what I've heard their not exactly on everybodys good side. Thats just what i've heard, so I guess if they don't go the route of the 2000's then all should be good. (Note: I like ATI, I only own ATI cards)

Hi There!

The first thing you will want to do is check Dell's Website and download all the drivers they have available for your system.

Next, you'll need to find the operating system CD that came with the laptop or BUY a new one.
As a suggestion, Call Dell and see what they'll charge ya for replacement restoration software. might not be that bad and should definately be cheaper than buying a Windows CD.

A:Help! Bout Dial Up Speed Going Down....

Pardon me, but can you please translate into a form of standard English? I am sorry, but I can only understand the barest gist of what you have written:

Your dial-up speed has decreased

You have been doing some kind of trouble-shooting

You need assistance

It would also help if you provided some additional details:

What is your operating system?
What you may have been doing when the slow down occurs?
Is the slow down consistent or erratic?

This is a dumb question but I am having a hard time figuring this out.

I hooked my toshiba laptop up to my samsung LCD. I open up itunes and begin playing music thorugh the tv. About 5 minutes goes by and the screen saver comes on the screen and music continues to play. Then a few minutes later the music stops as the computer seems to go in a snooze mode. The screen goes black. You have to go over and hit a key or move the mouse for it to come back on.

I am wondering if there is a way to make the computer not "fall alseep" so that the music just plays continuously?
 

A:Playing music through tv from laptop...

Change the screensaver delay time. Check Power Options in Control Panel.

As a part time DJ i spend a lot of time playing the same laptop a Recording music from music in the same order so i was thinking what if i Recording music from a laptop could just sit down and record the tracks that i play Recording music from a laptop directly into one Recording music from a laptop big MP and then it would save me having to load and cue each track I use a program called ClubDJ Pro its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last quot X quot seconds of the song X being a set time between and seconds However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can when i first played them mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you silence is deadly when your doing DJ ing So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC Laptop and then record onto that It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own nbsp

A:Recording music from a laptop

you might use WavePad Sound Editor to remove the trailing silence
