    Hi Everyone,

    I'm another new guy to the forum from Australia (where? )...

    It's great to see all these like-minded people sharing the drum - I viewed the forum over the last few days and just had to be involved.

    fyi I started on Pearl then Gretsch (back in the 70s when eDrums only made that Baker Street sound) then took a 20 year break (why??? in hindsight). I stopped into a music shop about 6 months ago and had a whack on a Roland kit and was "snared" again - best thing I've done for years!

    Good drumming all

          Hey, another Aussie Vdrummer who uses Protools
          Welcome aboard
          Which part of Aus are you from?

          Slightly off topic but how are you finding PT4 with Vista?
          I'm still using 7.3.x with XP.

            Michael - when addressing Aussies we don't mention the words .."colony", "Queen", "prison", "convict", or "rugby world cup final 2003"...

            ...they don't like it..

              Hi to everyone,

              Thanks for the kind welcome - much appreciated


              Hi Superpuss,

              I'm a few hrs south of Sydney by car - can't quite see your place from here

              re ProTools 7.4; - I find the limitations are more in PT itself - no 64 bit compatibility, no RAID compatibility and only 24 audible tracks (without the Mastering add-on) but it is a great advance when you compare to cost of a PC to the cost of a tape multitrack with the same specs

              The Vista side of it is excellent - good interface / good compatibility. The only downside is that 32bit apps only recognise 4GB RAM....I have 8GB that the BIOS can see but ....oh well...at least I'm ready when 64bit Vista is supported by PT...

              Keep up the kit evolution

                I guess a few hours south of Sydney would put you somewhere in the middle between Sydney and Geelong then.

                Great to hear some positive experiences with PT and Vista and I hear you about the equivalent in tape based equipment.
                I didn't realise the Vista version of PT was limited to 24 voices. That would be a major limiting factor for me because many of my songs have more than 24 tracks playing at once. Even the 32 limit is sometimes a small issue but what we have available to us for the cost still blows my mind coming from a tape and razor blades background.
                I am planning on upgrading to a HD3 rig some time soon though and that is going to be awesome. A few more mastering jobs and some album sales will help

                  Okay, you got me Mr Render.. It's all lies... Mr Render is spot on- the dinkumness of this forum is totally extreme.. far beyond extreme if I'm honest. The extremity of this forums dinkumness is simply mind blowing- seriously . This one time, we tried to get a dinkum reading using a supermeganeodinkumometer that we borrowed from M.I.T, but when we commenced measurement the supermeganeodinkumometer started shaking then got really hot and caught on fire !!! True story dude.. So yeah, beware.. dinkum-extreme...

                          Hi SuperPuss,

                          I stand corrected - PT7.4 allows 32 mono audible tracks (128 recordable tracks) - so no Vista limitation on that. I plan to add the Music Production Toolkit (after EOFY) to expand to 48 stereo tracks - I'll let you know how it runs then.

                            Hmmm... I wasn't aware of the Music Production Toolkit but a short visit to the Digi site and I'm looking at another case of GAS!!!
                            48 stereo tracks is worth the price alone for me. I use stereo tracks a lot in my mixes for synths and other stereo sources and with the 32 mono limitation (16 stereo), I often find myself wishing for a few extras.
                            The plugins would be useful but not a strong selling point for me. I have the Waves Mercury bundle which takes care of most of my plugin needs.

                            I would like to update my PC too. I'm still running an AMD single core CPU (3200) and some of my mixes tend to bog things down somewhat, especially if I'm using the Waves Impulse reverb which I LOVE.
                            I bet that quad core of yours packs some decent plugin power
