Oh. Wow.


To hell with the flying car.

Mind over matter. Now that's something to write home about.


Better yet, affordable mind over matter, realizable now. No implants. No skin breaking or abrasion, messy gels, long training...

No, really. Oh, wow.

The Tracktion option looks attractive. It's straightforward and relatively easy to use. You could export the project files as audio files just as you would moving from any other platform (there's also an option that keeps them in Tracktion project format). Shame about his Inspiron. Mine (a Centrino)...

Thanks for the correction!

And good point on CD-R deterioration, as well.

And, of course, one should always send data files on CD-R, not audio discs, to mastering. Data files have error correction. Audio CDs don't, when it comes to the actual audio data. Actually, it's kind of the other way around -- but your advice is good, all the same. (Audio CD players will try to "c...

Me too. Sometimes I wonder if some other program would be more stable, but I've used Cake's stuff back to Pro Audio 8 and I don't have to think -- such an easy setup to fly with . . . Well... you know, I never had any stability issues (I mean almost none over a long, long period) in the days before...

Um... if you're gonna tug on my leg like that, please do the left one as it's a little shorter since my motorcycle wreck.

I hope this Waltersmania thing isn't spreading...

I'm a true believer in building my own but this spring I needed a tower (with the idea it would just be a server) and didn't want to spend either a lot of time or money so I got a refurbished Dell P4 2.8HT for $340 bucks ($400 with high Cali tax and shipping). It didn't have much on it and I could h...

I thought the locking floyd rose tremolo system ruined rock and roll? hmmm. My vote. PS... rock's pushin' sixty. It's safe to say it's entered the realm of "classical" forms like blues, country, etc. Doesn't mean it's dead. Doesn't even mean it can't grow... But come get me if it shows any signs of...

Re: Classic recordings that are out of tune

Jazz critic Leonard Feather (who supposedly helped 'discover' Billie Holiday) once described Betty Carter's vocal tonality as "idiosyncratic." That's what happens when people settle for 'piano-pitch' too long, seems to me; after a while if someone sings the correct pitch, it sounds foreign.

Re: Classic recordings that are out of tune

There is a somewhat obscure album by Jefferson Airplane called "Thirty Seconds over Winterland". The vocals on it are atrocious! But there is something about the album that makes it really good, there are a couple of cool sounding songs on it. The drummer on it is one of the unsung heroes of rock d...
