Alright, I think it’s official. Somos locos. This is the final podcast from Jeff and Tony together from the NAB Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, as it probably should be. We review the upcoming product from Mackie called the Satellite. It combines the best features of the Mackie Big Knob with all the functionality of a desktop/portable 2-channel firewire interface. Desktop for the port. Portable for the Satellite.
…stay tuned for Jeff and Tony’s storytelling hour…
Jeff and Tony back again, check it direct it, let’s begin… In this installment you’ll find a shorter and more succint cast from your favorite internet DJs, except for the fact that as we go along episode per episode, we become more and more like lunatics. Please forgive us in advance. Nonetheless, we feature the HMX-56 matrix headphone mixer and all of Jeff’s crazy applications for it. Beware and behold.
This one’s for the DJs! Jeff is featured in this cast explaining the Mackie D.2 DJ mixer and its application not only to live DJs, but recording DJs as well. Similar to the Onyx compact mixers, the D.2 features a Firewire card option, enabling the user to play and record live. You will see blue.
Audience Interview Podcast
So by this point, Jeff and I became increasingly annoyed with our own radio banter and called on our local audience of happy trade-show-goers to ask us their questions. The result may be good, it may be horrible, but we’re going to leave that decision up to you, the listener. Our audience co-host ended up being interested in the Onyx compact mixer with Firewire, and thus, we bring to you, our latest and greatest NAB podcast. Enjoy.
Welcome back to the second installment of the podcast podcasts. This time we’re going over the Mackie Tracktion software that comes with every interface purchase from any of the LOUD technologies brands. This includes the firewire option cards for the Onyx compact mixers and interfaces, the D.2 DJ mixer, and the Tapco Link.USB. Tracktion is actually easier to understand than our explanation, but come along and join us anyhow to follow the podcast signal flow into the computer world.

Digital X Bus owner Usher Raymond impresses us like few in the biz. Why? How he’s planning to spend this weekend is one of many, many examples. The socially conscious artist will help teach teenagers leadership skills at a seminar March 17-19 in Cleveland, Ohio. Where? At the three-day Midwest Black/Hispanic Achievers Teen Leadership Summit sponsored by the Cleveland YMCA.
