Glad to help! I don't think I've ever been called someone's personal hero before. :)

ew - all very well for you to sit back with your popcorn when you know how the movie ends! :P

Re: Australian equipment price insanity ?

but mostly we just get gouged because until the internetz, we couldnt go anywhere else. People used to go on junkets to Hong Kong to buy their electronic stuff. Exactly. Big business wants it both ways... cheap overseas labour to make their stuff, globalization FTW etc, but when it comes to the ret...

Re: Australian equipment price insanity ?

And who is making all the money then ? Yeah, I don't get that at all. I guess the local retailers are just doing it for as long as they can get away with it? What's to stop me from buying them from US online stores and undercutting local stores by hundreds of bucks? Although, I'd have to get an ABN...

Re: Australian equipment price insanity ?

I was in the market for a Focusrite Saffire at one stage, and I emailed my local Australian retailer to ask whether they could come anywhere close to matching the price I could buy one from the US for (even with shipping... the difference was in the order of AU$500). Basically all they could do was ...

Re: Life as an Ableton Developer

I'd love to start an Australian programming office for you! Subversion+SSH should do the trick? :) I'll even buy my own big exercise ball so it's almost like being there.

I only just found out that England has a player called Onions! What a great name.

Re: How much should a drum beat vary during a song?

It utterly depends on the desired genre/style/mood etc. I don't think minimalist electro tracks are any the less for having extremely simple drum tracks - in fact, it's part of what makes that sort of music endearing. On the other hand, listening to artists like Lamb is awesome in a different way, b...

Re: Kontakt 3.5: anybody tried it yet?

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the library view (which is what you get when you use a 3rd party, kontakt-based sample library) didn't just extend to 3rd party libraries... the other "Komplete" sample-based instruments are in there too... like Akoustic Piano. MUCH easier than having several...

Sheesh... more confirmation for why they call you people whinging poms! :) You'll be fine, no way Australia will bat through the final day with only 5 wickets in hand.

Re: Fabfilter bundle $99 (Twin,Volcano & Timeless all V2)

Ever since the Nitro deal, I only buy specials now for $9.99, not $99. :)

Looks killer though, I'm just kidding myself if I need more distractions right now, having only just bought Komplete 5 and Suite 8!

So, when you ask "is there an Ableton iPhone app?", what would people be wanting it to do exactly? I'm tinkering in XCode and iPhone development at the moment, and trying to think of some fun projects to try.

Re: Komplete 5 399 .. is it worth it?

let alone dealing with NI's supposedly erratic support. NI support has always been top-notch in my experience. They can take a few days to get back to you on an email support ticket, but if you call them on the phone they can generally deal with your issues right there and then. The forums are gene...

I hadn't, so I emailed sales to ask when I should expect to receive one, and they sent one within ten minutes. Maybe just need to give them a nudge?
