How do you use XO Wave?
I am an audio engineer at several venues in Denver and I also run a small recording studio/record label called Helmet Room Recordings. I have been using XO Wave on location to record live performances from a matrix mix from the house board. Generally, I will have a CD for the band before they head home after their set. Bands seem to love it.
What is your favorite XO Wave feature?
The main reason I use XO Wave is because it can drop CD Tracks into the project in real time. As a band is playing their set, I am recording and dropping tracks in between songs, and then I don't have to go back and master it later at the studio. XO Wave creates a Red Book CD Master right on the spot. This is really an invaluable feature in the live music scenario.
I have yet to tap into the multi-tracking aspect of XO Wave, but I am heading that direction. I plan on bringing room mics with me and combining a stereo pair with the matrix mix, but I'll be doing the same thing- Dropping tracks in and making a Red Book CD on the spot.
I have also found the support to be awesome, and as it is being developed, new features are always coming up. XO Wave is the best value out there for recording software, hands down.
What other software do you use?
In the studio, I use Cubase, Mackie Tracktion, Reason, Absynth, Wavelab and tons of other peripheral stuff. when I am working on location, I am using XO Wave.
Anything else you'd like to say about XO Wave?
I'm excited to see what the future has in store. Thanks for making such a well thought-out application.
