Thanks, if anyone is interested, I now work in Logic 8. I've figured that if you switch into drag mode=Shuffle L any cuts you make shit it all to the edit point. I also use, plug on my channel: gain, EQ, compression and limit, bussed to a mono bus with a master limit. But I just backed off all the compression thresholds

Hi Nick, Did you say that you are using the R0DE Podcaster USB Microphone? It sounds really good and a great show.

DP, not the USB Podcaster ,the ProCaster, dynamic mic. I tried the USB one, but it didnt sound so good to me.

I'd like to put forward an alternative opinion about musical categorization..

I was quite shocked to hear some of the dismissive comments regarding mp3 descriptive tagging. Contrary to the "The Man created genres as a system for arrange records on the shelf" view, I suspect descriptive tags will become vital as the digitizationalized availability of music grows beyond The Man's or anyone else's ability to keep track of it all.

I see no difference between the preset selection/search menu used on Native Instrument synths (which is brilliantly useful) and descriptive tags in music.

On the online music-streaming site Pandora.com, users were encouraged to add their own tags. Allowing users to do anything opens up possibilities that could make or break the system.

Are tags useful? Perhaps the user's ability to interpret pools of description will be the key to it's success? Perhaps you could tag tracks with images?

I find this area fascinating.

tags were created for marketing records in stores. there was a time when there were no tags.. you don't have to like it, but that's how it is. perhaps today they've taken on greater relevance for some as much less product is sold at retail. if they work for you, i'm happy for you.
