        Yeah it told me that too. Perhaps a worm got into the server.



        This thread took off in an interesting direction too.



        The latest electronic music thing that has made my eyebrows scrunch up is the tide of commercial sample libraries. The new "label" is the company that commercializes sample sets and many of those, though sized as if they would be released on CD, are for sale as download only. At some point in time I chose to follow Native Instruments as a developer on KVR, and now with the occasional news bites of interest I receive two or three announcements for newly released sample libraries for Kontakt per day.



        Oh well, I am one of those hobbyist hacks who started out as a pretty good guitar player and started farting around making stupid noises with synthesizers and drum machines - mostly just for myself - and then started taking piano lessons now and then. I have no illusions of doing something great - just making noises and having fun.

          Ditto! It's all about the fun factor for me as well. :thumbsup:

            Some of the best music comes from people who haven't learned it in traditional ways.

I've often said that this is a great time to be young and interested in music, since you can now do things with a medium priced laptop and affordable software that simply weren't possible 20 years ago with $100,000 worth of studio equipment.



            But the inevitable consequence is that you'll open the floodgates to many who just aren't musically talented and have no discipline to learn it as a ground-up endeavor. Yet they too want to 'make music,' since after all it's natural to want to emulate your idols.



            It's sort of like decreeing out of the blue that everybody can go to college. Well, it turns out that some people just aren't college material. If you're going to ignore this fact and let them in anyway, then inevitably you'll have to reduce or eliminate standards.

                My Mac computer won't let me log into this forum today- got a message that this site was corrupted.






                Firefox wouldn't let me connect, warning that the site wasn't safe. But Opera didn't have a problem.



                Using the Google machine to type acapella.harmony-central.com returns this warning, on both browsers:

                    The liberal infested political forums with daily ra ra chants for their chosen one doesn't help. That alone has made many of the conservative minded stay away. Of course that's probably the intent.




                    Actually, the intent is to keep the ra-ra political threads (both conservative and liberal) OUT of forums like this!! So far, so good.



                    If people don't want to visit a keyboard forum because of what happens in a political forum, that decision really doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. To each his own, I guess.

                      And... guess what? For top of it all, Google chrome claims that this site could be potentially dangerous and each time I click the link for this forum, it always reports about that this site contains malware!



                      When it comes to lost members, this will be the last nail for the coffin, I guess.

They can do whatever you want but not in the time you want. People have lost the essence of time. One said to me: 'With this new computer I can create something in one or two minutes'. This is an eternity. I can do that in a split second. But the split second doesn't come into account because the previous computer could do it in 10 minutes - so for them, 10 minutes to two minutes is really great progress!&quot; - <b>Vangelis</b></div>

                          no complaints on that one either.





                          I think most of the regulars here are niche within a niche and that's fine by me. We're mostly objective people paying the bills, getting stuff done around the house, spending time with our kids etc. and stopping in here to keep in touch, laugh a little, and to keep some old friendships alive.



                          I don't see anything wrong with that. It may have "old man" stink all over it, but the other side of the coin is unending "I"m a guitarist and is the microkorg right for me?" questions or "I have a 486DX with Waves and fruity Loops and I can't sound like Jay Z can you help me?" or non stop bickering between the usual parties.



                          We've made a lot of positive progress and I'm not really going to waggle my fist at it.. if anything, we can only hope that we'll attract more like minded folks eventually.

                              When Musicians Friend sells Harmony Central and the original website with all its useful tools are restored, then some of us may come back.

                                It's really a very conservative forum now.




                                This ...



                                Frankly boring personalities set the tone here these days even more so than the out-sized ones did during the chaotic "good ole' days," when a creative spirit and a mix of the informative, inflammatory and infamous commingled over their daily bread of keys, synths and samplers ...



                                Now ... Nothing surprises, excites or inflames anyone or anything here anymore ... And as many of the frequent recent posters would assert, that's how they like it ... Well, enjoy your dying forum ...



                                And then this ...







                                I can't think of any other forum I've been a part of that's experienced more technical problems than this one ... Everytime a prolonged outage occurred, it was like an increasingly feeble man contracting pneumonia ...





                                I quoted Droolmaster earlier because I can't really think of a better demarcation between the end of "then" and the beginning of "now" other than the "Droolmaster banned/re-instated" imbroglio ... KSS went into it one way, and came out of it quite another ... I'm not placing blame at the feet of any specific party(ies) but something shifted after that ...



                                Instead of resolving differences quickly, like friends do, it was slow, painful and grotesque like being ripped apart on a medieval stretcher ...



                                This is the body of KSS now ...
