Re: Need a Boom Mount for Apogee Mic (reply)

Re: Dtar pickup battery discharges too quick. (reply)
Yeah, I'm waiting for a response from them myself. I'm also having battery issues with the D-Tar in my Grand J. One of the batteries has a tendency to pop out of its cradle, thus disabling the electronics. I can push it back in with the...

There are a lot of people liking a shareware program called Reaper. I have no experience with it. GarageBand, being both free and excellent, has pretty much captured the low end Mac market. By low end, I am referring to the required...
