That's the aim. Everybody, virtually, can now be an "home" recording\nartiste, if not podcaster. Since the last couple years, anyway, in\ncase you've been sleeping.\n\nInteresting modules, nonetheless: Exciters for narrowing into freq. Qs\nand messing with harmonics, so-styled retro/vintage, tape, tube, and\nwhat all;- all kinds of (usually) parametric EQs, some with and\nvariously combined to compression/limitation override controls;- all\nbeing software, of course, where would we be without including\nbit-level "dithering," which I won't even pretend to psycho\nacoustically bond with.\n\nCombinations thereof for further splitting distinctions between cross\nhairs, I should suspect would enhance a total gestalt especially when\nprinting out pretty boxes for bundling up a CD inside;- if not for\nreverse-engineering standalone modules, among VST inclusions to be had\nfor "chaining" into a better front end sound-processing program with\nDSP options (even with some video players being up to par in that\nregard).\n\nSo, it's now to a point of sophistication: German psycho acoustics,\nthe invention of MP3, has been officially augmented for studio-grade\n"tools," (approximations thereof), both readily accessible and within\nsuch means that simply anyone can't afford not to notice;- Given\nthey're free for a modicum of aural appreciation.\n\nUp to a point and for some of the plug-ins. Others, however,\ndedicated packages containing interlinked processing modules exact\nsome overhead notably on CPU-usage when generously overextended.\n\nProbably due specious bloat code for my relatively new dual-core 3Ghz\nIntel I managed to squeeze off Ebay for . Therefore, I really\nshould further indulge and purchase a quad core, already, albeit four\n2.33Ghz cores. It's my best course of rationalization for tearing\ndown two computers, to their bare cases, and rebuilding them for all\ncomponents diametrically opposite, to include OS migrations and one\nvery careful installation of W7, so to natively utilize the quad core\nat its best vantage as a multimedia platform centre.\n\nThat's a lot for another Ebay processor, the quad core now en\nroute and shipped. If I were a technician, I'd be charging over 0\nfor the labor involved, alone. But I'm not and, try as I might, it'll\nbe likely another insatiably deferred project (I have only pop that\nquad into this computer initially - the multimedia "target," btw, is a\n2.2Ghz dual Athlon). All on a hunch some software will perform with\nall its oars in the waters;- I presently can only eke out two modules\nof processing, from a studio suite-oriented platform, that is not\nwithout overloading the processor, e.g., inducing artifacts.\n\nThen, again, I'm running two pairs of studio-grade monitors in a\nwet/dry looped arrangement through a mixer for a two-amp feed with one\npre amp providing the DSP-processed wet/dry reference signals. Sucks,\nI know, but at that level do I have any choice? It's not like,\nreally, you can tell me I'll derive benefit or how many modules will\ntake on a 2.33Ghz platform dispersed four-ways by Win7 (and,\nwhether by advantage from 32- or 64-bit code). Not offhand, I think.\nBest just to "do it" -;) eh.
