Re: Moog Grandmother

cough Minilogue cough $499 USD, it's a fun little beast. I got mine about a year ago. Yea, guess I should have stated what “fills every need” means to me, which includes having more than 2 envelopes and 1 LFO per voice. ;) Sent from some crappy device using Tapatalk Ah, I understand.

Re: Is there any real value in buying hardware?

Just curious if you’ve tried a Kemper yet? It’s the first one that has actually fooled me—everything else fell short. (And by “fooled” I mean it sounds so good it has inspired me to play more often.) Kempers are great if you approach guitar from a synth player perspective, e.g. you need more than o...

Re: Moog Grandmother

I have no more interest in mono keyboards. There’s literally millions of them on the market. What we need are more analogue polys in the affordable price range. Same here, but the only “affordable” analogue poly is DeepMind. I also like Novation Peak, then up at the next price point there is Prophe...

Re: May Madness is on!

If you don't have the mix and mastering rig, get it. The other rigs are probably good too but I bought this one last May and subsequently upgraded to the new version of the rig as well. Good stuff.

his initial statement is more along the lines of "nothing is fulfilling if you can't share it". But yeah, then he overthought that ;) Ok I definitely understand that.

Re: TIDAL accused of deliberately faking Kanye West and Beyoncé streaming numbers

I enjoy creating music, but I don't enjoy it if there's no-one to make it for. I couldn't disagree more. Like 180 degrees at 180 mph. You also said, paraphrasing, if there's no audience then it's too much like work. Quite the opposite. If you're only making music for someone else (ie for a paycheck...

Re: Brand new laptop... Computer too slow. HALP!

A high performance plan will not improve performance. Just because I don't mince with my words does not make one "hostile". It seems you just can't accept an alternate/parallel reality to the one you believe in. So you engage in deflection and aggression as a sort of smoke screen. A high performanc...

Also note I never run my laptop just on the battery (I bet I have but I can't remember doing so).
If running off the battery is "stupid" then what is never letting your battery fully discharge/charge? EH?

Run the benchmark on a low battery without mains. Unless you've modified your power plans, you will definitely see a difference. My laptop stops pl...

I've had the Refaces on my crimmus list for a while now. Definitely getting one or two of them. Unless I can find a used Nord that does good organs and rhodes/wurly sounds for the price of two refaces. Kinda tricky trying to figure out which Nords do what. Anyone know of a sub $900 used nord that na...

Re: Brand new laptop... Computer too slow. HALP!

This. I would only add that you can customize your power profiles to not do this. But by default, yes this is definitely true. My profile is such that it throttles performance when battery is below X level. I will instantly get "computer too slow" message or other problems when running on battery a...

Bullshit, it does not improve performance. Would love you to prove it. I wouldn't call it bullshit at all. You can prove it to yourself quite easily: having your power profile set to Balanced will throttle your CPU and make your entire system feel slower than it does compared to when it's clocked t...

Yes an interface will solve the problem. But I'm running an older Dell i7 with no issues whatsoever so I'm thinking something's probably just off with your configurations. One thing I'd recommend trying is easy. Set up a new administrative user on this computer and try the demo song again. See if th...

Re: Audio Interfaces - is there a difference in sound

Some interfaces allow you to bypass the onboard preamps. I do this with my M-Track Eight. The one I tried before this (18i20 2nd gen) didn't have a true bypass. So the short answer is "yes".

Re: What headphones to get

You may have luck looking at live sound “in ears” because they have the highest quality and most options (but you won’t find them for $100!). You start with custom fit molds for your ears because (as I understand it) the “one size fits all” won’t cut it in most cases. My GF has a few generic pairs ...

Re: How many REs have you bought without a trial first?

I've never trialed and RE that I've then purchased. I trialed The Legend and for whatever reason ended up buying Vk2 instead. I bought the Mastering rig and the subsequent update and a handful of other RE's that I didn't trial first. I listened to the examples on the prop shop but that's about it.
