Re: [ARSCLIST] Software for Mac

Dave, this is interesting, thanks for sharing. Do you think you stand a better chance of tracking warped 78's playing back at 45RPM? Also, do you worry about low-frequency distortion since at the slower speed there's so much more low-frequency energy, or does this not matter with flat EQ? What is your pitch correction? I ask because I've wondered about using 45 or even 33.3 for badly warped disks.

I use an APT Holman for my pre and go into the Inspire at minus 10. I have played around with going in flat for 78s and doing curves in Q10. The main problem here is, after defeating the Inspire RIAA curve, matching the impeadance of the cartridge I use (Stanton 681 with a D6827 stylus). I haven't decided the best way for me to do that economically. Right now I don't have a 78rpm turmtable so I have experimented with speed correction in Peak after a 45rpm playback. It seems to work fine to my ears.

Dave, how is the phono preamp in the Presonus, or are you using an external preamp?

I have a lot of personal tapes which I am restoring and archiving. I use BIAS Peak for my recording/editing and Waves' Restoration software for any clean up. I also transfer vinyl using the Inspire unit from Presonus. The Mac is also part of my home intertainment system where I use iTunes for my jukebox. For compression I go to AAC 192kbits. It all works well for me. The G4 I was using came to the end of it's 7yr life and I plan to replace it with a MacMini and a bunch of external HDs.

Hi all,

I'm deciding whether or not to move my audio transfer workflow to Mac.
Pretty much everything else I do is on Mac, particularly since we do
a lot with video oral histories. Right now I use both SoundForge and
WaveLab on a Windows machine, and have considered trying Boot Camp and
Parallels so I can run them on my Mac. My systems guys warned me off
of Boot Camp, and so that leaves either Parallels ($79), so I can run
my software, or getting audio software that will run on a Mac. I can
always stay with my Windows machine for audio, but it drives me a bit
bonkers with its wonkiness. Any suggestions or sharing of experiences
using Parallels would be welcome.
