  1. UstadKhanAli you must be smoking crack.How would you know what's a waste of others time.Are you a newbi to computer based recording?No you say?Well I am.There's no need to be rude. You say there are flaws in my Perfectmpc idea.Hey ding dong.There are flaws in nearly every single buisness on this here planet.what about the fact that pcaudiolabs only carries 2 brands of memory.Or they only let you choose between 2 mobos.and only one of them has firewire integrated. I'm not stupid I know perfectmpc couldn't offer a warrenty on the actual components.but there are very simple ways to assure at least a little that one would'nt need a component warrenty as much as one would need assembly bios/windows tweaking,tech support and labor warrenty.It's not like newegg just ships out a bunch of non-working junk.If a component did not work then it's under the manufacturs warrenty.You simply call perfectmpc(techsupport) they tell you how to take the piece out step by step.you send the piece back.Get the new one call perfectmpc(techsupport) and step by step put the new component in. You sure seem to know what's best for every range of knowledge to hate on a nigga for having an idea to help newbi's out.That's all it is,is an idea.Sure it could be improved but so could all buisnesses. Anyone who said perfectmpc is a bad idea.Pretend for one single second that you know almost nothing about computers.And that you need one for audio production.Go visit everysingle "music computer maker" you can find and tell me they all don't have flaws.I have spent many months visiting everysingle music computer maker I can find on the web.and everysingle one of them come up short in multiple areas.The one with the fewest is CentralComputer.com because they carry tons of different components in many different brands at better prices.And they will build and tweak your computer like all the other ones. UstadKhanAli are you so closed minded you can't put yourself in a newbis shoes for a moment.Or maybe you work for one of those music computer making companys and your scared of little competition. I'm not a buisness man.I'm just a dude who likes music and would like to use the benifits of modern technology to record that music faster and easier. I also know that buying a PC from perfectmpc would cost just as much as buying one from those other makers.When you factor in time spent,Tech-support,labor warrentys but at perfectmpc you get those things as options the whole idea is about options.Some people know more about what components they want and can tweak there own windows settings for music production maybe they just wan't someone to assemble it and get a couple years of labor warrenty.and or tech-support. Options a plenty.Perfectly custimize every single detail. By the way UstadKhanAli if you arn't a newbi.Then your opinion on this particular matter doesn't count. Juggalo Luv Woo Wooot
  2. I'm sure you'll think I'm playing dumb,since you've already made up your mind about my intentions in regards to Perfect Music PC. But what the hell is a troll.It seems like your saying that I just wanted to release the information of my busness to unsuspecting musicians. You could not be more wrong.The only problem with PerfectMPC.com is. It doesn't exsist. I'm not a computer builder.I'm a f@#$in musician.But I wan't to take advantage of computer recording too. After looking for a better place than Sweetwater and PcAudioLabs to buy my first music computer from I was noticing their bad qualities in prices not services. I wrote the entire Perfect Music Computer Idea in wordpad on my home laptop.It's not real. Though I wish it was Do you think I'm some guy trying to plug my upcoming buisness. Wrong I'm a musician that just had an Idea. Maybe it's not a good idea to you cuz you already know how to build a computer. But I don't.and I don't want to learn. I wish there really was a perfectmusicpc.com and they offered those services that I wrote about in the idea. I have been researching what computers people are using in their set-ups for a couple of months.but what I learned is everyone is different and there is no perfect way to go for more than one person. I know all the components that go into a Computer.But know very little about the exact jobs that those components perform. And I know that to have a stable music computer various Bios and OS tweakings must be made.(because I read it in PC recording studios for dummies, by jeff strong) I'm not plugging my buiness.I wish I had the knowledge to do thoses things that perfectmpc would do if it were a real company. Because so far as I can tell.From looking at Rainrecording,Sweetwater,Carillion,ADKProAudio,PcAudioLabs, and many others. All of them jack the prices of the components up.And none of them offer many different choices in the first place. Here's an example and I've said it before. At PcAudioLabs unless you pick an AMD FX or Opteron they only give you a choice between two motherboards 1 Asus and 1 Soltek. and only the soltek has firewire.So if you want firewire you only have one to choose from.That's not a choice. All those damn companys act like their selling the only components that work good for music. I don't want to buy the components from them is basically what I'm saying. I'll pay them to build it.And to do all the tweaking,and for tech support and any other service they may offer warrentys and factory restore disks and sh#$. I love the services that music computer companys offer But I ain't gonna buy their components cause the prices and selection is bullsh#$. and please before you diss me,think about this. Even though I don't know a whole lot about computers.that doesn't mean I don't deserve to take advantage of Computer based recording. There are thousands of musicians out there that wan't and deserve to take advantage of the technology that is coming out cuz it hepls us create and record our music easier and faster. Maybe we don't wan't to learn how to DIY or whatever the hell it's called.And who the hell is anyone to tell us, if we don't wan't to learn about computers and build are own we should just accept the crap that's put out by F#$%ing sweetwater. (as a musician) I wish upon wish that a company like perfectmpc would come out.To me it seems like it would help simplify things and you would still get a really fair price.I wan't to custimize every single component in MY music computer.and Choose from many different services. Damn it why don't these companys just sell there services. Why did they have to get there damn nubs on the components to sell. I stand behind thinking that perfectmusicpc would be a great Idea for a company. and if any of you out there know all that it takes to assemble and tweak a computer for music production.and perhaps you have some friends that do as well. (as a musican who respects and will pay for your knowledge) you can happily have the perfectmusic pc idea. I have looked over that whole thing I wrote many times. I still think it would be a great idea and succesful busness. Meanys

  4. Welcome to www.perfectmpc.coms' 5 step Music Computer designing process. With all the hard things musicians go through to record there creations,it's finally time for some simplicity. Step 1: Create a personal computer recording needs portfolio on our web-site.This will help us determine what your needs are as a recording musician.Simply answer the 12 questions provided.This will help us zero in on your exact component needs. Personal Computer Recording Needs Portfolio(try to find out this information for your needs) 1.What sequncer(s) will you or might you be using? exp.Sonar,Pro Tools,Cubase... 2.List any other Applications.exp.SoundForge,WaveLab,Finale 3.Will you be using MIDI? 4.If using MIDI,what Virtual Instruments might you be using?exp.Reason,Sampletank... 5.How many Simultanious tracks of playback would you need? 6.What will be your desired Sample-Rate/Bit-Depth?exp.16-bit 44.1,24-bit 96khz 7.How many Effects per song might you be using? 8.Would you like to track with effects?exp.Recording a vocal take with reverb. 9.What are your simultanious Recording needs?(how many tracks will you be recording at one time) 10.What Data transfer method will you be using.exp. Firewire,USB,PCI 11.Please list any other software or hardware you have that you will be using with or on your PC. 12.What is your budget? Step 2: You've done some work. Now it's are turn. One of perfectmpcs' 12 musician/computer geeks will look over your personal computer recording needs portfolio to get a good picture of what components you will be needing.We will then find the best prices for those components on the web and e-mail you the list of them.(remember the components we recommend for your musicPC are based upon your specific needs,budget,and also Qulaity products Known for there compatibility with Audio Production).You can even choose all the components yourself without any help from us if you'd like.Or we can work together via phone and e-mail to find the best components and prices for your needs and budget. This is your PC. Step 3: Ok your turn again. Once we together have agreed on the absolute best components for your specific Audio Production needs.You will then purchase these Audio specific components.From whom you may ask? Where ever you wan't to.That's right! Perfect Music PC does not sale one single Computer component.The reason for this is very simple.We would not (nor would any "Music Computer Manufactor) be able to offer the same fantastic prices on these components as places like www.newegg.com or www.zipzoomfly.com.We would have to charge more (as does every "music computer manufactor" to cover the cost of keeping these components in stock. You will purchase all the components you need from whom ever offers the best price. Simple.(remember,all the components that are put into so called "Music Computers" by the "Music Computer" maufactors are bought from most of the same places for fantastic warehouse prices).The reason they jack up the price so high on each component is because,...well they can.and people will pay them the ridiculous amounts of money because simply there isn't any other choice. When you buy a Computer from a manufactor you are buying there Computer.With it's own features and even a cute little name.Like the Latitude or the Dimension or even the Creation Station or C3. Now on the other hand when you buy a computer from perfectmpc.com you buy your computer not ours.We don't buy a bunch of components put em together and slap a catchy name on it.Why?Because it's not our computer it's yours and yours alone.In every single detail specifficaly designed by you with the help of our Computer and Audio knowledge.And you can name your computer whatever you wan't.(I call mine the grey phantom),don't laugh. Back to Step 3, anyway you like, be it check, money order, or credit card.Purchase your Music Computer Components from which ever place offers the best price.(there all the same components anyway).And instead of having them ship the components to you.Have the company foward the components package directly to us. Step 4: Our turn again. As soon as your components arive,we begin assembly of your new, truely user specific "Music Computer".One of are 12 highly knowledgable musician/computer techs will assemble your computer with the upmost care and respect for your property.(Treat other musicians gear as you would treat your own).We absolutly will not compromise on this.We will handle your components as if they were our own.Why? uh duh because it's simply the right thing to do. Once your computer is physically built solid and stable the tweaking begins.Lets face it using a computer to produce music is not the same as using one to search the web or edit family photos.The Bios and OS must be tweaked into an Audio Production friendly way.This will help your entire computer realize it was created for Music Production, and will help avoid instability or any undesired hic-cups in it's performance. Step 5: Your computer is built,it has been tweaked for music.It has been tested numerous times for any instabilty or issues of any kind, and has passed our thorough examinations. It is now time to purchase your Perfect Music PC.You know what we at perfectmpc.com love?Choices, Options call them what you will but they are great arn't they.Everyone is different and we at perfectmpc completly understand and love this. Now it is time once again for you to customize.While most companys slap a default warrenty and period of tech-support onto their computers.We see this as well just plain non-sense.With us you can customize your very own Labor warrenty and tech-support period amongst other things.You can custimize exactly what fits your needs and budget.Lets say you have a high level of intelligence about your computer.You wouldn't need as much tech-support as someone new to computer recording.So why should you get charged for something you won't be using.Very simple.You should'nt and at perfectmpc.com.You Won't We are not a computer manufactor.We simply offer are knowledge of "music computers" as a service to musicians who are tired of being over-priced for the same quality components and support.You will never pay us for a computer component.Because we don't sell any.You buy great quality components from which-ever company offers the best price and send those components to us.You pay us only for the services you need and never for a service you don't. Assembly,Tweaking,Instalation of software,Warrenty,Tech-Support etc...Purchase any of our services for your specific needs and budget. Here is a quick list of the services we offer.but first let me remind you that just like everyone is different so will be the price of our services since they are fully custimizable. Example:Some higher end computer components take more time to assemble together.Also someone who would need let's say, just their OS, a couple of sequencers and perhaps a Soft-synth work-station or two, would pay less then someone who needs there OS plus dozens of seuquencers,soft-synth workstations,mastering applications,Notation Software etc. (please don't let the higher-end prices fool you.Unless you plan on using your music computer in a full comercial studio your price will not be anywhere near the higher-end. Computer Assembly (invovles putting your pc together and settings tweaks) $75-$250 Tweaking (invovles installing and tweaking your OS and Bios). $45-$150 Tech-Support Options 1 year,3years,5 years,or lifetime. $40-$175 Labor Warrenty Options 1,2,3,4,5 years $50-$250 We do not offer warrentys on the actual Computer components simply because there not ours.But don't worry about this.We would never recommend a component that doesn't work well for audio, have a good reliable history and a good manufactors Warrenty.Example.Seagate has 5 year warrentys on all there internal hard drives.So we would obviously recommend these over any hard drives with 1 or 2 year warrentys. We also offer additional services such as but not limited to: Factory Restore disk and Software Remote Fix We encourage you to visit other "Music Computer Manufactors" to check there prices and services.Please,Please do.We we're amazed ourselves with the prices they put on "there" components.Then also visit places like www.newegg.com or www.pricewatch.com and get the real prices on these components.Then WE (meaning you and us together) will design your new fully optimized fully custimized Perfect Music PC. Please come visit us at www.perfectmpc.com and take the simple 5 step process toward building YOUR(can't stress this enough) Your Music Computer. Musicians make music.Music makes the world go round.Simple
  5. Thanx for all your replies.Finally found the solution to my needs. I tried to send it as an attachment.Didn't work so I'll juts split it into 2 posts.Perfect Music PC www.perfectmpc.com is the only place on the web where you can configure a perfert, absolute specific computer for your Music Production Needs. FACT:Nearly all companies that design computers, wether they be for Office,Home Multimedia,Gaming, or Audio and Video Production. Buy the components for there computers from the same places, at incredibly low warehouse prices.Then (and this is comonly known) they assemble the computer, give it a name and jack the price WAY, WAY above what they paid for it.(Go ahead and check for yourself). Now most of these companies allow you to upgrade to better components directly on there web-site giving you the feeling that you are designing a computer specifically for your exact needs.Well you absolutly are but at what price? FACT ONE. The company does not offer any where near the selection of components that are out there at any given time.(they say this is because the comonents they offer are the only ones best suited for music).Well there half-right. Different PC needs require different PC components and Music Production is no exception.But there are far more components that are suited for music production, then they can keep in-stock. FACT TWO. There components are ridiculously over priced. New,Better,Faster PC Components are coming out everyday, driving down the prices of yesterdays components.The problem with that is, the "music computer manufactor" has to keep selling their components for what they were worth weeks and months ago.Because they bought them at that price.This is unrealistic pricing.The world of computers moves to fast to keep large in-stocks of components,when those components prices are dropping every month. Now there's perfectmpc.com.We here at Perfect Music Computer offer the absolute easist,cheapest and most user specific way to configure your own Music Computer.Technology has finally made it possible for musicains with real life budgets to create proffesional quality Cd's and DVD's.No longer is the "equipment" needed to do this only accesible to the stinkin rich. Musicians have enough gear to purchase just to get there recording going.They don't wan't to take Computer classes OR be overcharged by greedy money hungry "buisness men and women.You wan't find any of them here at Perfect Music Computer.Simply put we are musician/computer geeks who's only two concerns are. 1.Building your Music Computer Specifically designed to fit your Music Production needs. 2.Making sure after the sale that your computer remains stable and effective. Now before I expain how perfectmpc.com works.I'd like you to do something for me.Go to any company that builds PC's specificly for music production, and look at there prices per component. There are many companys out there now that do this (we know of 10). Now go to www.pricewatch.com or www.newegg.com and look at the prices for the exact same components.Ludicrous isn't it? How come the exact same components cost so much more at "Music Computer" manufactors websites.Well for some of them it's because their greedy and only care about making money not helping musicians,and others because they hire so many people they have to charge way more to pay them all.(simply overhead)But I cannot disrepect them on the price they incorporate into for there tech-support system because most of them actaully live up to this part.Honestly the money you pay for a certain amount of time of tech-support is just as imortant as the Computer. We at Perfect Music Computer have taken all the great services of these companys and embraced them while at the same time Completly disregarding the non-sense. ok enough talk here's how perfectmpc works.
  6. I do not wan't free computer building.I wan't to pay for the great tech-support that places like PcAudioLabs and ADKProAudio offer.I also wan't to pay for a decent warrenty that will keep me safe for a year or two.I also want to pay them to assemble it.I also wan't to pay them to tweak my OS for music production.But what I will not pay for is overly priced components that are the EXACT SAME! as places liek newegg I am not going to pay for a Sweetwater Sticker or an ADKProAudio Logo on my Machine.These company's are GREAT in every respect but there Price per component adn everyone knows it. This is A Fact. I configured myself a decently powerful PC at PcAudioLabs based around AMD Athlon X2. when I was finshed choosing all needed components the price came to$2255.00 I then Configured the exact same computer with the EXACT same components at newegg came to$1480.00 That's $750.00 more What the hell? That is called greed to me. Tech-Support,Decent Labor Warrenty,Assembly,Windows XP Tweaking.Those four things are great but I'm not gonna pay almost a thousand bux for it. BTW I don't wan't the best computer out there I know it won't hold a candle to whats coming out in years to came. Hell my needs arn't even that taxing to any computer. I just wan't a STABLE music computer at a FAIR price.
  7. Sorry dudes but your both wrong you have no idea how many musicans out there wan't to create music.duh.That's why were called musicans we love are craft and study the hell out of it to do it right.Learning every single thing it takes to build a Music Computer is way to much for most actual musicans who just wan't to get right down to making music.and who are any of you to say that newegg should not offer this service.Maybe they would there's no way you can know that for absolute positive.BTW I know that even knew computers go obsolete in just a short amount of time but that does not give companys like PcAudioLabs the right to charge honest musicans double the price per component what the component is actually worth and selling for at places like newegg.Go to PcAudioLabs and configure any PC.Then go to newegg and using the exact same components configure the exact same PC.I guarentee it will cost more than $500.00 less.And you get a wider selection of components to choose from at newegg.Why would newegg need to jack up the prices on the components you think there actually paying that price themselves.Hell no they themselves already added on there own small amount so they can make money to.Then PcAudioLabs buys there components from newegg and tack on there own small amount (which if you would go and look is not small at all)Plus newegg can offer special services like factory restore disks,2 year parts one year labor Warrentys Tweaking of OS for music production for a little more $.Not to mention they would of course charge for Assembling the Computer.Musicians don't do to each other what Places like MusicXPC,Sweetwater and PcAudioLabs is doing to there customers.Greedy money hungry corpret executives do.Really what the hell is wrong with places like newegg offering this service.Musicans get the same great computers at newegg prices and weed out the jerks that slap a buncha {censored} together and lable it a music Computer.Sorry dudes that's your opinion and this is mine.But I bet you MANY fellow MUSICANS (musicians being the keyword here.) don't wan't to learn a whole new field of stuff to get there songs down.and I know there is much more to recording than computers thats exactly why I don't wan't to learn how to build my own because there's already tons of things for musicans to practice focus and work on to improve there craft PEACE Juggalos
  8. If you've read any of my earlier posts I apologize for beating this topic to death. I've been looking for the perfect decently priced ($1500.00) "music computer" for several months now.(about 14 months to be exact) spending countless hours on the web researching diiferent companies and the Components they offer. Rain Recording,MusicXPC,pcAudioLabs,Carillon,ADKProAudio,Sweetwater and many others(i thinks 11 in all) I swear I have throughly combed through all of there Products,Warrentys,and tons of other slightly mis-leading information.So here's the deal if you don't believe me you can check for yourself go to PcAudioLabs and look at the CPU's you must choose from.Then open up a second window and look at www.newegg.com.Look at there CPU's, okay pick a proccesor on pcaudiolabs and look at the price.Now pick that exact same processor on newegg and look at the price. Here's a true example: PcAudioLabs AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ price=$490.00 newegg.com AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ price= $362.00 thats a $128.00 difference,for I swear the exact same model,exact same component, oh yeah did I mention they are absolutly the EXACT SAME Product. I promiss it's not just the Proccesors there doing this on they are charging nearly double the true price for the same thing.Why is that well "they have to make money" I here you say.Yes and that's the first charge that goes into configuring a PC from them. it's called the "Base Price" which is what they charge you to put it together, install your OS, and Tweak it for music production.So why the hell are they charging honest consumers damn near duoble the price of each component.I understand they have to make money I but the price differences per component will astound you go check it out for yourself I'll wait..... Krazy huh?It doesn't make any damn sense. So here's my thought. ALOT of Wise Real Musicians right here on Harmony Central that have been building computers for themselves for there music production needs all agree on one mega-fantastic website called www.newegg.com.Here you can get every single component you need to build the absolute best Music Computer for your needs,and the prices are sinfully low I swear go look.Ahh but here's the catch you can get these fantastic prices but we're musicians we don't wan't to learn how to put a computer together even if some say it is easy.We just wan't to get it plug it in and record.This is where places like pcaudiolabs does good on.Tech Support, 1 or 2 year Warrenty on Entire Machine,and they will install your software.This is really great why did they have to overprice there components? So here's my Idea everybody that reads this post please E-Mail Newegg.com and request that they possibly higher a small team (just a handfull of guys would do).That you can talk to.To help you choose the components needed to design a Music Computer just for you, and the best part is you would get those components at newegg prices.Then you pay them to assemble it,Install your OS,and tweak it for music Production.They could even offer Tech-Support,Warrentys, and any other additional services for a little more $.I swear if newegg.com would offer Computer building services, places like Sweetwater and PcAudioLabs would be forced to be more honest with there actual products prices. (If enough people E-mail newegg.com and request this service they will start listening)
  9. The motherboard is the killer everything else will do me fine.The soltek has gotten awful reviews and not just by audio peoples gamers and multimedia buffs hate it as well but over at pcaudiolabs this is the only affordable motherboard they offer that has firewire on it.
  10. Soltek SL-K8TPro is the only motherboard offered that has firewire at pcaudiolabs unless you have over $500.00 for a Tyan Thunder.Does Soltek make good motherboards how is there history or feeling by audio peoples.Here's the specs.Look Good?

Will need to record Vocals,Electric guitar,Electric Bass, and use Midi for Soft-Synths.All drums will be created via Loop cd's and Reason 3.0 Any opinions either way would you go with for this situation. (these are things I've researched endlessly and seemed to fit my needs. (One of each of these is my exact price range.) 1.Mic for male singer with mid-range and kinda nasaly voice. (mic will be stricktly for my vocals all instruments will be direct into the audio interface) a.Audio Technica 3035 (heard it picked up bass better) b.Rode NT1000(great reviews to help warm the voice) I know the mic won't do all the work but one of them must pick up the bass in a mid-range voice better than the other. 2.Audio Interface (for vocals,Guitar,Bass and Midi). a.Novation X-Station (with all those features in one unit the preamps must suck but if they were good I would'nt need a midi controller cuz it would be there with my audio interface. b.PreSonus FireBox (been kinda hard to find terrible reviews on this thing)I would need a midi controller with this one though which is fine if it's got better pre-amps than the novation. c.E-MU 1820M(these look nice cause effects won't burden my cpu as much for effects and Latency may be lower than the USB Novation or the Firewire Presonus.but I've heard it's very difficult to use and get used to.I'm not a tech head so I should maybe stay away from this one.) 3.Headphones (Only to use while tracking vocals) a.AKG 271Studio (Looks good) b.AKG 240Studio (may save me $100.00) c.or perhaps the gradys everyone keeps mentioning 4.Monitors (This would be the last piece besides a simple midi controller if the novation preamps suck.) a.Event TR8 Tuned Reference (looks nice) b.M-Audio BX8a (looks nice) c.Behringer Truth B2031a(most seem to agree these suck in some way or another but someone told me don't believe the hype they are used by more professionals than we think and are quite good). It seems that musical style would matter while picking mics and monitors.I like and record Hard Rock,Hip-Hop,Ethnic,Symphonic,and New Age. Harmony Central truly, truly Rules.
  12. Don't own this mic yet I know 199.95 isnt that much but can't seem to choose between the AT 3035 and the rode NT1-A I was all set to go with studio projects C1 when I read numerous reviews that it's better for higher voices and instruments.I have a mid range voice but I like to get a deeper bassier sound to much high end makes me sick.You almost had me studio projects.AT 3035 or Rode NT-1 warmth and better deeper bass with less eq.ing Which one is better.
  13. Can Anyone reccomend a mic at this price range or around it that is better for male vocals than the C1.Good Heavens this thing seems like it's made exclusivly for high end instruments and voices.Got it for regular price 199.99 immediatly didn't like the voice captiring.I only needed it for vocals since I direct record all other instruments.My voice is mid range male like most no where near bassy yet no where near high end either.Is there a mic that truly shines for mid-range vocals in this price range perhaps Rode.LOVE BASSY VOICES DISLIKE HIGH END MY VOICE IS MID.halfway decent mic is???? a better one than this female studio projects C1 is???????????????
