Re: 30 days sober

But as i said, mainly i want to give the kids the right impression. As long as you are giving the kids the right impression of course. One of the biggest problems in the UK is that the "kids" have it in their heads that abstaining during the week and getting blitzed at the weekends is the way it's ...

Re: Crashing with Novation Launchpad

If you're trying to identify this as a bug I suggest trying to reproduce it with the demo project included on the Launchpad DVD-ROM. If you can re-produce it with that demo project then it rules out your sets being at fault.

Cheers,

I'm with you on this. GOTOs result in spaghetti code which is completely unmaintainable.

Re: Quality

tonight I mentioned this new development to a few friends who are involved in software development they couldn't believe it I think that tells you something I'll second your friends astonishment.

Re: Does SoundCloud REcompress your uploads?

If I recall correctly, your upload is re-encoded to 128kbps for use in their players, but when you allow people to download your tracks they will get the original. So if you upload MP3s, your already compressed track will get extracted to wav (or equivalent) and then re-encoded (and hence recompress...

Re: What laptop stand are you rockin'?

Easily. You can have all your stuff on space of one notebook. Ideal for DJ jobs where there is little space which is 90% of DJ jobs. I use it for writing music in patio, Novation SL 37 goes under it, I can see the displays, so dont worry about launchpad. Warning it wont hold heavier notebooks well....

Re: NEW MACBOOK PRO... What we've all been waiting for!

They just keep changing it so you have to buy new connectivity. now they give back firewire. Ever occur to you that maybe Apple just made a bad call on taking the Firewire away from those machines? Maybe they totally underestimated the market demand for it. It was barely away long enough to make a ...

Re: NEW MACBOOK PRO... What we've all been waiting for!

I'm EXTREMELY pissed off because of this, I just bought the last macbook with no backlight and no firewire, great, now I'm stuck with this, apple definitly screwed over those who bought the recent macbooks, makes me not even want to buy apple any more. ARGGG!!! Yeah that's actually not Apple's faul...

Re: NEW MACBOOK PRO... What we've all been waiting for!

I fear that the term 'Pro' is increasingly just a marketing ploy. As was the term 'PowerBook' -clever name for a laptop that was underpowered when compared to many others at that time. But at least it had firewire 800, which is a pro feature. By removing the express card & replacing it with a lousy...

Re: FW 800 to 400 adapter for mac mini

Any noticeable reduction in quality with either the cable or adaptor options? Depends what you mean by a reduction in quality - we're talking digital signals here so it's not like using low quality audio cable. Obviously it depends on how the FW protocol handles error correction, but I would feel s...
