Re: Presonus Livestream May 22 (almost surely Studio One 4)

Oooo, I'm in the middle of learning Studio One Ver 3.5 (Just wrote several cues for some game companies with it), and so far, I'm quite impressed with it. For library and video game music, it's REALLY good. I finally retired Sound Forge (8? 9?) because S1 has great mastering workflow and re-encodin...

Re: Sonar - Now available as Cakewalk by Bandlab and free of charge

What?!!?/ Dammit... I just dropped coin last year as an early Adopter for Cakewalk... then just paid for DP 9.5 crossgrade. Sometimes, I hate this DAW industry... :P There's no way I'm going back to Sonar; I just finished installing my new rig today; am imaging/backing it up this afternoon, then tak...

Re: Cakewalk rescued from Gibson by BandLab

Conceptually, I think it's great. But speaking as a composer who really needs to invest in a DAW that feels properly backed by a healthy, stable, company with its' finger on the pulse of the digital composer industry... sorry, Cakewalk, that ship has sailed for me. I reinvested my time with Digital ...

Re: What's up in the world of cinematic percussion? Looking for specific recommendation...

I have all those.... I find HZ to be the most useful and Drums of War to be the least useful... not surprising, I guess you get what you pay for? I do like DOW but I kept consolidating until now it's just stacked up as one giant patch in my template. The different mics in HZ sound drastically diffe...

Re: Impact Sound Works / 'Django' Gypsy Jazz Guitar

Bit of a change of topic, but also check out Craig's album, Outside In. It's a great groove jazz album, my wife and I put it on when we go out to the porch for the afternoon relaxation. It's a great album to unwind to.

Re: Impact Sound Works / 'Django' Gypsy Jazz Guitar

I'm torn. I'm great friends with both Craig and Andrew. As a friend of Andrew, I'm always impressed with his company's offerings, and his latest is a really strong VST sample lib that can really put down a good rendition of gypsy jazz (no mean feat). However, I've also (skype) jammed with Craig, wit...

Re: RIP Prince

RIP Prince. My high school bar bands covered a half dozen of his tunes, and I stayed with him, through his various incarnations. An immensely talented performer and artist; just... I'm going to miss his tunes. His last couple of albums were showing some really neat, fresh sides to him. I'm going to ...

Re: Boulez-Requiescat in Pace

Oh, that is so sad. I loved his conducting of Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe, as well as his conducting of Stravinsky's Firebird. He had such an ear for orchestral clarity, and intonation. He made those pieces open and transparent. Rest in Peace, Boulez, may you find great music in your next journey.
