  1. Rick Beato has a vid where he breaks down the supposed similarities between the two songs and takes a look at some of the issues... In the wake of the Blurred Lines case, I figured we'd see a lot of bogus lawsuits coming up on 'sound and feel' and trying to exploit the manifest ignorance of the general public who fill jury boxes and the non-musicians who typically fill the judge's robes.
  2. Good overview. Thanks, Craig!
  3. I'm loathe to throw out anything that works (and a lot of stuff that doesn't). I like the idea of giving stuff not being used away to folks who can use them. But when the time finally comes to dispose of electronic gear, remember to do it properly, so as to help contain the heavy metals and other toxic materials typically involved. My city has electronic waste drives several times a year. (They also have shredder days but I always seem to miss them.)
  4. Thanks for the heads up! Could be an important bit of knowledge (or at least a link) to have tucked away.
  5. I'm a fan of Gaga's fine voice and her abilities -- though a lot of her contemporary pop efforts go right by me -- AND a fan of the stage/movie musical form. So I was definitely interested when I heard about this movie. And then I heard some of the music... Bleh. Banal, tepid, boring, hackneyed. It is, of course, only my opinion. But I'll bet I've seen more musicals on stage and movie than anyone else in this thread.
  6. Just movin' a little slower, is all...
  7. I can see it... but a single click does nothing. A quick double-click DOES kick it into 'action' -- unfortunately that action is simply a spinning progress wheel (that can go on for minutes... perhaps aeons).
  8. Do you slip into a Scots accent in the chorus? Freaky loaf?
  9. Been using CW/Sonar since CW Pro Audio 6's early release/beta thingie. To say I was extremely skeptical of Bandlab buying it and flipping it to free would be a safe statement. But my attitude toward the old CW/Sonar had gone way south, anyhow. Like others, I found I could ditch the Bandlab online collab/sharing applet thing (though I may re-explore it in the future) with no problems. And, like others, I found the overall DAW to seem to work better and have a subtle but somewhat pervasive better fit-and-feel. I'd never felt comfortable in X3, having jumped straight from 8.6 (or 8.7 if there was one). But the BL/CW seemed somehow more promising and I plunged ahead wrapping my head around a few architectural changes. I'd been pretty frustrated by the state of the embedded help system in X3 (and before) and often found I had to go online to get answers about changes from 8.x to X3, anyhow. And then my X3 installation had become corrupted somehow and wasn't reading MIDI input correctly. My old, still-active copy of 8.6 still worked. And after installation, the BL/CW worked fine with my MIDI devices. So, overall, a win, from my point of view.
