Re: The most RAM I have ever had in a computer

I run 64 GB in both my gaming and productivity PCs. I initially installed only 16 GB in my gaming PC. Then I tried Cities: Skylines with mods and quickly discovered it wasn't nearly enough . I upgraded to 64 GB to give myself enough of a ceiling that I wouldn't need to worry about it anymore. In the …

Re: Why do people like FPS games so much ?

Then came Quake and I hated the clunky polygon models, unable to appreciate how much more versatile a true 3D engine was compared to the 2.5D shooters, because I had no understanding of the difference back then. I had a similar reaction until two things changed my mind. 1) The adoption of using the …

Re: Why don't more games contain advertising?

This isn't a new idea; in game ads and sponsorships have been around since the early days of video games. I still remember way back with TMNT: The Arcade Game for NES having Pizza Hut billboards in-game and a coupon for Pizza Hut included in the manual. Companies have also experimented with dynamic …

Re: Diablo I on GOG!!!

Q: Are other classic Blizzard games coming to GOG.COM? A: Yes! We have announced that we’re partnering with GOG.COM to release Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft II. We’ll reveal more information at a later date. Oh that's awesome. I'd been wanting to play the original Warcraft for awhile now, …

Re: Warcraft II Music Soundcard

Even if you have the original MIDI file used for the recording, settings on the individual sound module as well as subsequent mixing and mastering will also have an effect on the final recorded output. I wouldn't expect CD audio to be straight recordings from a stock MIDI module.

Re: Mixer for sound cards and midi modules.

Even the so called lowly mt-32 was something like 500$ back in the day which was a considerable amount of money. To put that price in perspective though, a professional synthesizer would have cost a couple thousand dollars. A $500 MT-32 would have been inexpensive in comparison if someone was …

Re: Mixer for sound cards and midi modules.

I didn't see anything that low quality inside my MT-32 though. There must be something in between professional and low end. The MT-32 was basically a budget module featuring the LA synthesis found in the flagship D-50/D-550 synthesizers at the time. It was aimed at the prosumer marker (low-end …

Re: Mixer for sound cards and midi modules.

Yeah, Behringer gear is at the lower-end for sure. But at the same time, so are a lot of the sound modules and sound cards we're using too. An MT-32 is not considered a professional piece of gear; it's actually criticized by professionals for being 'noisy' and low end compared to something like a …

Re: Mixer for sound cards and midi modules.

Is there any models that would allow mixing at least 4 stereo inputs? Your best bet is the Behringer RX1602. It's a rack mixer designed specifically for stereo sources (up to 8 of them): https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/RX1602--behringer-eurorack-pro-rx1602-rackmount-line-mixer It uses …

Re: Let's talk parts washers and ultrasonic cleaning

I'm looking for an inexpensive setup. something big enough that i can dunk a motherboard in. Define "inexpensive". I also have a feeling that the size requirements to clean an MB (ATX size?) will likely preclude anything cheap. Most cheap ultrasonics are quite small; they're aimed at cleaning …

Re: Overkill workstations - what are your thoughts?

I suppose it entirely depends on what you're using it for. For standard desktop computing or gaming? Pretty pointless compared to a regular desktop. But if you're doing rendering or other multi-core intensive tasks where time is of the essence, then I suppose it could be useful.

Re: Your mobile tech

My smart phone is the only thing I'd consider essential. And that's because it's the only phone I have (no land line anymore). Having Internet access every where I go is also fantastic. I have a tablet but I never take it anywhere and barely use it. Haven't gotten into smart watches yet and don't …
