Re: Check in Thread

Glad this thread is here. Making me feel a little comforted today on a day when I am otherwise despondent. Thanks for that. Haven't been here in a minute. I've lived in East Lansing, MI and Royal Oak, MI since last I checked in when I was living in Hillsborough, NC. Back in Minneapolis now. Have los...

Mega-board

I'm super-glad the forum has been updated and your signaled support!

So, not to be too choosy as a beggar, but could we please have the mega-board back? (Hey, at least I'm not asking for off-topic. :wink: )

If I'm just a little sleep-depped, any of it. Worst is when it's something super-inane, and/or in a less-than-private moment. I got to see Yoko Kanno at an anime convention a few years ago. She did a solo piano performance, and I found the whole experience so overwhelming that I couldn't shut off th...

Granted I'm only self-recording, but I use several MOTU boxes and no mixer on the way in, for 24 channels or so. I have the analog outs of the MOTUs summed to a Mackie 12-channel mini-mixer for master volume knob for monitoring. I like it a lot for a solution because it takes up almost no space and ...

Win7 is my last stop with MS. Ads on my taskbar is a bridge too far. My computer, I paid for it, I own it. Right of first sale, baby.

The jamming with a drummer part rather complicates it. It is my experience that drummers tend to vary from a loop pretty quickly unless you provide them a reference click, which rather denigrates the traditional role a rock drummer plays from timekeeper to percussion performer.

Stupid 2016. She was way too young to go. Saw her in 2006 at Kings in Raleigh when they didn't have AC which 0% impinged on the Dap Kings performance. She gave me a hug afterwards when I thanked her for the performance. Such energy. Such a talent. She will be missed. There's a video of her playing i...
