sounds like an XLR snake cable could be a solution ?
Remember I need the full stereo signal on 2 outputs parallel!

Hi Thomas, your comments re the RMX etc do seem a little harsh - mainly as they are not related to the question of synth use. Gigi never claimed to be able to use computers etc. Given that self acknoweldged lack of 'expertise', his ability to create the music he did was something that I found special.
Also I had not noticed anyone getting into hero worship, overtly 'singing his praises', it has been a quiet respectful discussion with someone asking what synths he used.
Re the gear lust and his belief in possible sounds from equipment. I can only comment that your experiences would be the opposite of mine. I had numerous discussions with him about gear when i was trying, as I still am, to improve and increase (on a very small, usually non existent budget) the equipment I have and use.
Gigi always recommended fully exploring what I already had, exploring my creativity with what I had and only then think about changing or increasing. He also encouraged me to think 'sideways' for want of a better description, not just going for bigger or better synths or effects etc.
He did give advice on equipment that I generally found invaluable, even if i did not agree with all of it (he did not like the TC Fireworx effects unit - which I am really enjoying using). He said that being able to be creative with minimal equipment is more valuable than being uncreative with lots of it.
I suspect he was a bit of a techno-phobe in relation to computers. In that sense I have similar feelings. I have yet to explore midi....I am sure it is very useful and assists with creative music making, but I just can't get my head round it and no one I know locally to show me (how I learn best)
I am under no illusion that he was an angel. But he was as human as all of us and I would be very mean not to take that into account. I know if I had enough money I'm sure I'd be very tempted to buy all sorts of expensive stuff, and maybe it would end up an albatross around my neck.
I know that if I won the lottery i would definitely spend more on a hi-fi than a car.......

- Add a little mixer that has the outs you need.
- I've not looked at signal splitters, but they do exist.
- A patch bay.
I think we need to know what you are using. Normally I would send sounds to the FX via an aux send, then have the FX come back in again on an aux return or on other channels to the mixer. I would then send the sound out to your speakers. Most decent mixers would give you a second option, like a tape send to send to a recorder.
what other I/Os do you have from soundcard/monitor controller ?
What sound card do you use ?
trust me studio reference "sound" can sound both good an accurate. With headphones the amp plays a big role which gives every one different experiences. accurate is not = boring and flat sounding.
I use a DT770 (250 Ohm) which in a price range available for many people and they sound extremely close (frequency and spatial balance) to my Neumann monitors even by using the headphone amp of my monitor controller (also tested on the sound card)….what i´m doing wrong?
I think that we now in modern time are allowed to be tremendously open minded for more variety of sound and sound awareness.
I did find an extruded aluminum heat sink company here in the usa...http://www.heatsinkusa.com/10-000/ A 10" x 15" x 1" piece will run around $53.
Do you put anything between the heatsink and the computer to prevent metal on metal scratching. I release direct contact is vital for heat transference.
The old proverb "if you can't beat them, join them" works perfectly here. Your listeners love your music so much that they spend the time to build videos and share them with the world. If that isn't passion, I don't know what is. Treat it as word of mouth promotion, which IMO is the best kind.
The ultimate option is to beat them to the punch. Upload the music yourself and tag the shit out of it. Get listeners hitting your page instead of some random listener. Build a YouTube audience and show that you're not afraid to share an entire album. Be sure to remind them that if they enjoy the music, they can support you by purchasing it.
Yes Tomas....Im am wine drinker too, but Ive been watching some All Blacks Rugby history recently and some how wine just does work in that scenario, though New Zealand makes great wine so maybe.
