How can Opera Unite technology help musicians today!

Hi all,

check this link I think it's great! http://unite.opera.com/services/

Any thoughts?

Re: John Zorn

John Zorn does not make noise only. Try listening to Masada and you'll see why he's one of the most important and amazing musicians of our time. His work with Masada is unbelievably musical. Nevertheless one of my favourite albums is with Painkiller (with bill laswell on bass and the drumer of napal...

Suggest a uad plugin for me

Hi all,

I've recently bought a UAD 1 card.
I now want to buy a plugin. I'm in between the Cambridge and the Fairchild. I'm thinking Fairchild as I've already got Pultec which seems really nice.

Any thoughts?

Re: UAD cards

Cool, thanks. Do you know around how much money I should be spending? It seems they are discontinued and I can only find ebay prices. Also, assuming the seller is transferring licences over to me, will I be enjoying all the plugins that come with the card or will I need to buy them separately? Thank...

UAD cards

Hi all,

I've never had any of those but a guy I know is selling his UAD-1 studio pak.

Shall I buy it? Any advice?

I'm only using Ableton's own plugs plus a few free ones. Let me know what you think of your UAD1 cards please.

Thanks

File Management

Hi all,

I'm looking for a tool that will allow me to organise sets of files in folders according to their size.

More specifically, I have a folder with Terrabytes of data. I need to find a way of automatically organising this data in batches of 50GB each.

Any ideas?

Many thanks for your time

what would happen if the us would let israel down now? it would be destroyed by the arabs... 303 So you think the U.S supports Israel out of good heart? Sorry, but I fail to see your point.

Not worth effort to answer again. Points exactly like yours already made and answered 10 times in thread by 20 different people. Round n round same old. Read entire thread.

Hamas keeps saying that their victory is near while their towns and people they have hijacked get killed... First of all the Hamas have not hijacked anyone. They are democaratically elected by the Palestininan people. The Hamas were ousted right after the battle of Gaza 2007. Mahmoud Abbas, who is ...
