    We have been having torrential rain and winds gusting to 135 km/h here. There are trees down all over including a gum tree which used to be in our yard.

    Does anybody here own or heard the Legacy Extreme subwoofer? If so how does it compare to the latest offerings out there? If I purchased the Legacy I could hook it up to the Xilica DSP.

  5. How to get your guitars pushed into the extreme ends in the stereo width?

    Pro Audio
    Hi everyone, I am working on a track that has too many elements in the mid region - the rhythm guitars, lead guitars, snare, vocals. So I tried panning, didn't work as I want the mid region to have quite a lot of room for the kick, bass, snare and vocals to fit in. I tried the Waves S1 imager...
