I think a good analog example would be the LA2A - simple operation, great sound, not flexible. So much classic gear is like this, specialized for certain applications with important parameters "fixed". Another issue has got to be context. What kind of music are you producing? What is the source mate...

I've seen this subject come up a lot, both on this forum and others. Can we have some more detail on exactly what differences people can hear? For example, I notice that the default settings for Live's built in effects favor sound sculpting, ie: narrow Q slope in the eq, fast attack and release time...

It's interesting to see what words mean to people. Take modern for instance. I tend to think of Kubrick's 2001 or the ipod. Others might think of Bladerunner or the new times square. This video might be closer: http://mrl.nyu.edu/~jhan/ftirtouch/ Maybe we're finally going beyond star trek interfaces...

Hey, good to see you figured it out! It pains me that we can't share information with each other but you seem to be off to a good start. It's not as easy as it looks to make it look...simple! I made over 60 skins before I settled on the recent ones. Most were experimenting with color combinations. U...

I should also point out that, despite the low price point, Tracktion does what it does very, very well. No latency/phasing problems like I've had in Live. I don't understand why Live can't make input delay compensation work like it should instead of having to adjust individual track delays. I'm sure...

It's not necessary to trash one to make the other look better.

I own and use both.

There's alot of duplication but essentially, I see Live as a creative sound design program and Tracktion as a natural evolution of anolog simplicity.

Why not create your own? There are lot's of free samples to be had online. Better yet, visit a good drum shop and ask around. I bet you'll find someone who's already put something together and wouldn't mink sharing a few samples. I invited a good friend to come over and sampled him - individual hits...

Thanks. In painting, as I'm sure you're aware, white is traditionally reserved for highlights. That's the primary reasoning behind making it the choice for the crosshair selection. The actual selected clip color stays in the light steel blue range. Of course, everyone is going to have different opin...

It's a small file. Why not just download and try them for yourself?

I won't be making any screenshots.

If anyone else would like to, please feel free.

A couple of months ago, one of my students brought in a battery powered toy to use as a circuit bending project.
