Re: Saying goodbye to a friend, Leedsquietman passed away.

It's really nice to see the outpouring of respect and how quickly this thread has moved. Because it has moved on so quickly, I just wanted to post his bandcamp link again as a lot of people might have missed it. You can buy his album there either as download or CD for really not very much at all in ...

Re: I just don't know if I can bring myself to using loops....

Are you talking about pre made loops or loops that you make yourself for a particular track? I never use pre programmed loops - that would be somebody else's music not mine. But all music involves repetition and creating and layering loops is a perfectly good way to compose. The art is in getting t...

1. Define "the classics" 2. Every generation says "Music is going to shit and there's no originality/craftsmanship/masterworks anymore" Go to any school of music or conservatory and you'll find plenty of people who think music went to shit long before what you're calling "the classics" came around....

Re: Saying goodbye to a friend, Leedsquietman passed away.

another 2 links he had in his sig: http://soundcloud.com/umbriel-rising Thanks Alex! Just a plug for the Umbriel Rising stuff. Some might find his indie rock music a bit too dark in this particular circumstance, but the Umbriel songs are smooth as hell electronic music, good stuff. 8) yeah that's e...

Re: Saying goodbye to a friend, Leedsquietman passed away.

It's really hard to know what to say. I just saw the news on neb's forum and I'm still reeling. He's been around as long as I can remember and I always had total respect for him. He often mentioned poor health, but never let on it was that serious. He will be sorely missed. Deepest condolences for h...

Re: Abletons Unprofessional Authorisation system-Online/Offline

as said before.. theire authorisation process is one of the most comfortable for bigger programs.. however could be optimized... there could be really an option in the program that unlocks temporarily for registred users.. that would actually give us the benefots of dongel software where you can ru...

Re: RIP LoopStationZebra

Doesn't seem to be banned. You can PM his nick, he's not banned. ah, that's why he turned up at Neb's forum! I'm surprised it took them this long really….. You're a pretty mean spirited person under that nice guy routine it seems. No drama here, just an observation. :| erm… how do you figure? He di...

Re: Abletons Unprofessional Authorisation system-Online/Offline

I do however think that fully registered user should be able to emergency unlock for a few days *even when they have no unlocks left* to cover the worse case period of the response time from ableton in adding more unlocks. And ableton should not taking the f***** piss by just issuing with a single ...

It just comes with experience. yeah I was just abo...

Re: Things you want to see explained/worked through in video?

Can you do a tutorial on Warping? I know there is lots of videos on warping but they do not do a good job. They mostly do a beginners approach. I would like to see one that is more advance. For example, can you take vocals from a Rap, pop, or alternative song and warp it to 4 on the floor. Or simil...
