sounds reasonable. if it's good enough for you, it's good enough for us. BTW as i go through my touch with vortexbox, i am strictly 2 channel. if you burn a dvd (i would assume dvd-a) to vortexbox, does it output in 5.1 sound or does it downsample to 2 channel?
That is a very good question. I'll have to do some investigation and get back to you.
p.s. not to hijack this thread but this has been bugging me lately. we have heard about your studio work, but i can't find what you played or what band(s) you were in?
I played guitar, bass, keyboards, trumpet and drums, mostly in R&B bands. The last band I played with was called the "Hot Half Dozen." We played mostly in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. We were about the highest paid band in the region in the late '60's. The band was inducted into the Midwest Rock and Country Hall of Fame about two years ago. Great Fun.
Because we were all versatile musicians, we got calls to do quite a bit of studio work. They could hire us and have just about any instrument available that they needed. That got me interested in studios.
So I built my first studio in 1973 and spent about four years producing and engineering albums and radio jingles. Then I moved on to the advertising agency business (more money), but continued to specialize in radio jingles and commercials. For the next 30 years, I produced all kinds of music, audio and video at studios around the country.
After 9/11, things got really slow. No one was spending money. I had time on my hands, so I started building speakers. Now I don't have time for much else. And so it goes.
