  1. It seems as though every audio interface on the market that boasts more than 4 in/outputs has two of those in/outputs being an S/PDIF digital in/out. Am I wrong in saying that's a total jip to the consumer? Most of us when referring to audio that comes in from or goes out of the box just use the analog I/O. I know some people use the ADAT interface but that's another matter, and that's only an issue for the interfaces that have more than 8 ins/outs. Or do we actually use S/PDIF?
  2. For what I want to do musically... I don't need more gear. I need more TIME. :(2
  3. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32464080]R&B singer James Ingram has passed away. He was 66. No cause of death has been released yet. [URL="https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/29/entertainment/james-ingram-dead/index.html"]https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/29/enter...ead/index.html[/URL] [/QUOTE] Shocked to hear that today. :( According to TMZ, Ingram died after a long battle with brain cancer: [url]https://www.tmz.com/2019/01/29/james-ingram-dead-dies-brain-cancer/[/url] I'm also a singer and he was one of my vocal influences growing up. His range is about similar to mine (except that he can do those real high "Hooooo!" falsetto notes). "Just Once" is my go-to Karaoke song if people make me sing spontaneously. I also loved his 1991 tune, "I Don't Have the Heart." I never really paid attention to the lyrics, until years later when I lived that exact experience. Rest in Peace, James Ingram. You did your best, and I guess your best was more than good enough.
  4. Dude, I'm totally cool with "DAW." Now let's quit agonizing over this and make some music.
  5. I'm the king of chord progressions. And not the cliche Millennial I-V-vi-IV cliche kind you hear these days. But lyrics are so much more difficult for me. I tend to procrastinate, or get overly picky about them. It'll take me minutes to write a chord progression/song structure but years to finish lyrics. Which is funny (or sad/pathetic) because outside of music, I'm also a writer with a journalism background.
  6. Yeah, it was primarily this song that influenced him: The movie was not 100% historically accurate, but I really enjoyed it.
