My point is that I haven't had to learn or change anything when I started using the Fairlight. My stuff sounds the way It's supposed to. I don't have to worry about summing boxes, external clock devices 3rd party converters and all that nonsense. The Failright sounds great, and musical right out of the box.

Hench for the $$ they get for one of those it had better
You can get into HD for $7k which is pretty nice for those of us in smaller markets. Comparing HD to a fairlight is sort of like comparing fairlight to a Studer/ssl combo isn't it, I mean as far as dollars? I don't know if there are any music studios in the states with fairlights, I know they are big in post, do you do alot of post?
I've never heard one, but they look real nice, I hope to be in a place someday where I could even think about trying/ buying one

take care

I'm pretty sure, once you add up allt eh stuff you really need to do a fullbklown session, you're far and above 7k.

Its seems not everyone is in agreement about needing external clocks or converters with HD I would rather put the$$ into pres and mics. I think I have $12k in my HD1 setup with the 192 i/o and I guess I can do up to 96 tracks, though I've never been over 40 or so. As I mentioned the low entrance cost, widespread use, portablility,and 3rd party support make it hard to ignore.
It sounds very good right out of the box, as good as a fairlight?
I've never seen a comparison so I don't know.
Is the prodigy the "low end"? Thats $70k for 24 tracks?Looks really cool, but pretty hard to find pricing on these rigs. Take care,

Actually, there new dream series is the way to go. I think you can
get a 48 track system with control system, complete surround system with 56 channel mixer. All the synch functions, machine control, etc, control surface for around $50-60k.
Now this gives you full surround monitor controlsd etc., and the added advantage of 48 tracks of 96k on a single drive. And 48 chanels of I/O.

Add up you're purchase of a computer, all the I/O to record a full band (at least (24), synchronozer(if you want to lock to anything) etc, and a good control surface, and the figure ends up being a bit higher.

Can you edit to a BPM tempo grid now in Fairlight ?- as STANDARD? (Not a weird workaround)

Any strides forward for us music folks by Fairlight recently?

Tell us!

Actually, turned out that the click I generated was done in a ****ed up way.

Creating a tempo grid is easy. I've been doing quite a bit of music lately, including my bands CD. Full drum editing etc. Works great Sounds great. 48 tracks on a single drive.
