Re: Apple iPad. Meh.

I feel like ranting about this... I'm stunned at how full of fail this thing is. For all intents and purposes it is just a big iPod touch. For someone like me who has an iPhone already and iTunes on their computer, I'm having a hard time imagining what new this brings to the table other than a bigge...

Re: How we do in Bmore

I lived in that neighborhood for many years, just moved out two years ago. The immediate John's Hopkins area is all priveledged rich kid students, while the immediately surrounding areas are straight up ghetto. Robbery's and break-ins are just a part of everyday life, as the ghetto kids come in to p...

Re: OT Guitar Rising - Guitar Hero for real guitar

... or maybe they just like playing video games? This! You guys have it all wrong, trust me! I teach guitar for a living, and because of these games business is booming. People play the game because it's a fun game (modern day Simon Sez), not because they want to dillude themselves into thinking th...

Re: about Choke Group in a Drum Rack? Impulse vs Simpler

Hey Jamester I'm having problem with the Simpler that Choke Groups dont turn off and Impulses dont seem to work. Ok disregard Impulse for the moment as that's it's own special case, since Drum Racks are not designed to be used with them. (Yes there are workarounds for this, as has been noted, but t...

Re: about Choke Group in a Drum Rack? Impulse vs Simpler

What exactly is the problem you're having with using Simpler for hats?

Also, are you aware that you can configure Simpler exactly how you want it set up (volume, decay/release etc) and then make that a default for the Drum Rack?

Re: Ableton session drums or Addictive drums..?

Addictive Drums. Simple as that. Way smaller size. And I mean waaayyy smaller (like 2gb). Fast load times, easy on the cpu, and most of all, sounds incredible. Great dynamics. +1 I would also add the advantage of a big centralized UI, rather than an endless labrynth of nested racks which must be sc...
