    Logic 8 input/output issues

    Recently I was clumsy enough to wreck the audio output on my macbook, it's completely broken. But fear not, I had a griffin iMic lying around, so I've started to use that as the system audio output. However, Logic 8 appears to ignore the this system setting instead requiring the user to select the Core audio device in its own preferences. This is becoming an issue because the griffin iMic also has an audio input which I do not wish to use. Logic automatically selects the input from the iMic which is awful because of its high susceptibility to interference and noise. My question is, how can I map the audio output from Logic to go through the iMic, whilst still using the built in input? Thanks for any suggestions, Joe

    M-Audio Leopard Drivers

    I have the Midi Sport UNO USB interface for my keyboard in Logic 8, broken after Leopard. I'm hoping they update them soon, I might try re downloading the driver though.

    iPod Touch Release Date 9/28/2007

    I saw that date the day it was announced, if you go to the Apple store and order it, at the top it says the ship date is September the 28th.

    iPod Touch Add-ons

    Within days of the ship date it will no doubt be totally hacked, likely with the ability to import iPhone apps such as mail, notes, maps, etc.
  5. That 16GB touch has my name on it, it's exactly what I wanted. I honestly didn't expect it to have Safari, I thought it would take a miracle so I didn't get my hopes up. When it was announced I almost jumped out of my seat Shame you can't get a white one though.

    For those who haven't heard, apple's next special event is tomorrow on September 5th. As usual, an AIM (iChat) chatroom will be open for live discussion of the announcements. To access the room in iChat, click File- Go To Chat, and then enter 'themaccast' in the text field.

    You needn't use bittorrent to download the crack, I have always obtained it through a simple browser download found through Google, I was amazed how well it worked.

    MacBook Internal Hard Drive Upgrade

    Actually, in an earlier post, I explained that disk utility showed that mycurrent drive is SATA2, not SATA. So I should really stick to the SATA2 drive. One thing I must ask, the SATA2 drive on Amazon is only 5200 rpm, whereas my current drive 5400, would this create a noticeable difference in performance? Also, I notice that this drive has no manufacturer attributed to it, Amazon merely lists it as "generic" should I stay away from this and look for more well known brand like Hitachi, Fujitsu, or Toshiba?

    Still, would it matter that a drive is not SATA2. Is there a difference between SATA, and SATA2?

    MacBook Internal Hard Drive Upgrade

    Research on Amazon and Play.com has revealed many possibilities in regards to 2.5" Notebook drives. Firstly, from Amazon, this one interests me... Link I presume I would need to purchase an enclosure, which are also available on Amazon. This one, which I prefer, from play.com.. Link However, I notice that this drive does not claim to be SATA2. In system profiler, I have learnt the drive that shipped with my MacBook is SATA2, is this significant? Will a regular SATA drive still work?

    MacBook Internal Hard Drive Upgrade

    I've seen macbook drives for sale in the US, if I could purchase one of those in the UK, would I be able to just duplicate my installation with all my data, then somehow claim it back from the external drive once I have the new disc in? How would the transfer work?

    Skype trashed my laptop

    Thanks for warning us, I think we should all stay from Skype video all together until this is fixed. That is an extremely serious bug, one that can slab your laptop!
  13. I find Logitech to absolutely incompetent at writing drivers for their own products, they either miss out ridiculously obvious features, crash, cause your computer to kernel panic, or simply don't even recognize the device in the first place. So using Steermouse is pretty much compulsory when it comes to Logitech mice.

    We'll be back soon!

    Let the speculation begin, iPods? MacBooks? Mac Pros? Or just maintenance!

    MacBook Internal Hard Drive Upgrade

    I have to say that worked perfectly with all banks' services I tried. The fact that this works really does prove that for absolutely no reason other than laziness, do they not support the OSX platform. On one bank, Nationwide, it even said "you must use a Windows system", this work around proved that statement to be an outright lie. They simply have not tested it, so they assume it is incompatible. Which makes me even more angry than before... Are they totally ignorant of customers needs? Do they not realize that even amongst a user base of, say 500,000 people, around 75,000 of those people will be using OSX, and will not have constant access to a Windows PC? P.S: Im still in the market for a Hard Disk upgrade so if you know of any places I could get one I would much appreciate it, thanks.
