    How to UNdisable system volume control when using external soundcard

    I'm using the Audio 4 DJ from Native Instruments. I have the audio running from the card to my stereo speakers. I know I could buy a special setup specifically for listening, but I'm trying to make use of what I have already. It's an external USB soundcard haha not internal.

    HDD "Orphaned Blocks"

    I ran this check while booted from my main HD (the one I'm checking), but I ran the repair from the repair disk (restarting the computer with Cmd+R held, then choosing disk utility). The errors still appear while checking the disk from the repair disk. This 'orphaned blocks' issue has been...

    HDD "Orphaned Blocks"

    My hard drive (the stock 5400rpm 320GB) in the 15" MacBook Pro isn't able to handle the intense demands I put on it with music production. At first, I was considering buying a 256GB SSD, but I don't have the funds for it. I figure the next best option is getting a hybrid HD/SSD. I found one...
