View Full Version : Digital Audio Forum - Welcome

Jun 13, 2005, 07:59 PM
This forum is designed for the discussion of all forms of digital (and sometimes analogue I'm sure) audio and music production and for all users from Garageband newbies to the 20-year recording veterans.

It's purpose is to discuss the production of audio, not iPods, the latest boyband or your CD collection, those topics are covered elsewhere.

There are many good resources for audio production on Macs, http://www.osxaudio.com is perhaps the most useful, but it's been pointed out that they can be a little dismissive of newbies over there, and I'm hoping this will not be the case here.

Please search the forums before posting obvious questions like:

"Which is best: Logic, protools, DP4, Nuendo, Cubase, Reason etc..."?

as you will find a lot of discussion already in here.

Otherwise feel free to discuss, argue, explain and celebrate the making of music on Macs.

Usual forum rules apply. :D

I would highly recommend that people have a look at Macmusic (http://www.macmusic.org) for further information on this topic.

Also, Harmony Central (http://harmony-central.com) has lots of great reviews of different pieces of equipment.

There are many methods I've seen used and read about over the years for getting a good/true sound while recording accoustic guitars. If anyone has produced any exceptional sounding accoustic guitar, I would love to hear the details of how you accomplished it, whether you used mic(s), preamps, effects,compression, etc...

An introduction:
I'm trying really hard to get this Apple thing down because I have faith that the Mac will be the machine I use to convert my analog music to digital.
Some back ground: I have a full analog studio in the basement, drums, guitars, keyboards, mixers, effects, 8 track reel to reel, pedals, etc.
I'm having trouble with the Mac part!
The machine is my third Apple. (iMac G4, OS 10.1.4 700 mhz). It was almost free. The others were a 54xx mac & a blue & white G3.
Before I go any further I should say that spending much money on this project is ABSOLUTLY out of the question. While I do have a job, Playing music is alot more important than my career choices so please try to resist offering advice like: I need an Intel G5 or a new Mac book.
So my problem is that when I tried to download and open Audacity I get back
Mount Image Could not mount "/audacity folder/audacity-macosx-ppc-1.2.6admg". OK
What is that supposed to mean? What is the Mac trying to tell me? The link is broken? there's something wrong with my computer?

If Macs are so simple and elegant and user friendly why is it so difficult. The machine is making me feel stupid.
