Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

Would it bankrupt NI to chop $50 off the price of their 25 key keyboard when they have a sale for $100 off the rest of their keyboards? Right now you can get the 49 key version on sale for the same price as the 25 key which they didn’t put on sale. Some of us would like the 25 key version because of...

MIDI-wise it looks like they essentially do the same thing. Am I wrong?

Re: Movies

So now you can manage your Netflix DVDs on mobile devices. On a totally separate app from Netflix. :? I don’t get it. They can do whatever they need to do on the backend to separate the divisions but as a customer I shouldn’t even be aware of it.

Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

A favorites style tagging browser would be great! so you could create snare, kick, clip, percussion virtual folders etc. That would allow you to use percussion from Spark for instance inside Lives Drum setup. I think an elegant solution for tagging samples for Live would be right click on a sample,...

Re: Proudly collecting music gear and software for no purpose

With a Christmas bonus I ponied up for Spectrasonic’s Keyscape on NYE. I figure it’s the only piano/electric keyboard plugin I will ever need. But their download app doesn’t work. It just says download initialized but it never asks me where to download to and doesn’t start downloading. So yay, with...

Re: Mandela effect

Craig has his methods. I probably should have spun off my name about 3 or 4 times by now to disguise my level of involvement.

Re: Alexa, play some Norwegian death metal

My parents are still trying to remember they need to start their request with “Alexa”, not end the request with it. I don’t really have security concerns but am realizing we are getting a little too dependent on wifi. Other than the common uses I also have lightbulbs and even my entertainment center...

Re: Alexa, play some Norwegian death metal

Not really. I’ve always had an unhealthy paranoia that what I say or do even in private could come back to kick me in the nuts. I try to be on my best behavior even when alone.

Re: Alexa, play some Norwegian death metal

I actually have a pretty small kitchen and the living room stereo isn’t that far, but usually I need to turn up the living room stereo pretty high to go over the kitchen noise and around the corner the kitchen is in. Plus I don't have to worry about gumming up any hardware with food fingers. Last ni...
