  1. I've used the EMU 0404 internal card for years, but after building my new Windows 7 machine I've had nothing but problems with it. I'd like to buy a new soundcard. I don't need anything too fancy, because I have a Mackie 1202 VLZ Pro mixer that I do all my recording through. Most important point for me is low latency. Just need basic in/outs for recording and running through the mixer. Any suggestions?
  2. Thanks for the votes everyone. I did contest tracks 17 "Loco Motion" and track 30 "Throne Reborn." My "5" votes were: 23, 29, 32 My "4" votes were: 2, 9, 11, 21, 25, 33
  3. My votes are in. It was easier to vote on these than I had expected. Nice work to everyone involved; I'll be interested to see where all the results stack up. Best of luck to all.
  4. Cool! Doing either Phantom Train, Gestahl Empire, or Umaro's theme. Or all three if time.
  5. Well, didn't win but that means you can download the track here: http://solesignalmusic.com/documents/remixes.html In other news, excited to report that I'm up to nine almost-completed (brand new) tracks for my next album release.
  6. Maybe to a lesser extent, but between the big strings and synths this has some cool African percussion style breakdowns: Matrix soundtrack - Mona Lisa Overdrive
  7. Nice! Wish there would have been more from 64 (played that a lot growing up), but still enjoyed it a lot.
  8. Thanks man, appreciate that. It's a version that I could see played live by them as well, at the faster tempo and with the added guitar line.Under 24 hours left for voting; at this point hoping to get high enough for the band to notice for the grand prize or runner-up. Thanks everyone so far!
  9. Thanks guys! As always, several other deserving high ranking tracks. There's a few runaway leaders right now for the fan vote but the band is also picking a favorite (the Grand prize). Any help is greatly appreciated. Four days left.
  10. Hey guys, I remixed Switchfoot's (Dare You to Move, Meant to Live, etc) new single "Afterlife" for a contest over at Talenthouse. Winner gets placement on their upcoming remix album. I've been a big fan of them for years and I'd appreciate any votes to help! Listen (and vote) here: http://www.talenthouse.com/creativeinvites/preview/adad7add6c4acec448042794b5b5c39e/483 EDIT: Not a winner, but pick up the download here: http://solesignalmusic.com/documents/remixes.html
  11. It's nice going from Gold to Platinum and unlocking all those close mics. Very useful.

  13. Thanks for the thoughts! I ordered GR5 yesterday and will pick up the others soon. Confirmed my suspicions about the quality of the products.
  14. http://solesignal.bandcamp.com/Just changed it from solesignal.protagonistrecords.com so looks like I lucked out.
  15. Don't feel bad; I basically had to buy EWQL gold twice when I picked up platinum in the Complete Composers Collection. :/
  16. I was fortunate enough to see a large return from my end-year Pump Audio royalties. I'm looking to pick up some nice plugins with that. I need a good virtual guitar amp package. I'm looking at Guitar Rig 5 Pro. Can anyone vouch for it or something similar? http://www.native-instruments.com/#/products/producer/guitar-rig-5-pro/?page=2517&content=1672 Also, the ubiquitous Omnisphere that looks fantastic...is it worth $500? I write a lot of electronic stuff, but certainly am looking to do cinematic/electro-orchestral work. Same with Stylus RMX...I love the idea of customizable and adjustable grooves with different kits. Is it as "endless" as the promotional info suggests? Worth the price? Thanks!
  17. http://www.staples.com/OSP-Design-Mercury-Corner-Desk/product_807666 Very good design, and efficient use of space. Got it for $100 around Christmas; it's back up to $130 now.
  18. New studio pic with new desk. Finally dual screens. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150720964394908&set=a.10150386898029908.435398.198177539907&type=1&theater
  19. Really good stuff, here. Great production and unique sounds. Big soundtrack style work. "New Texas" reminds me of Firefly.
  20. Responding per your twitter comment... Sounds like you're using FL. This is quite good for a first piece. I hear some dynamics and a sense of instrumentation. The samples are a bit bland and generic, but layering, sound design, and better samples will come with time. It's a fairly simple melody, which suffers a little from the slow pace of the song. Certainly serviceable, though, and much better than anything I put together on my first track. Might want to look into Nutritious's free FL orchestral template, too. The best advice I have is to keep practicing and producing. The best way to learn is by digging in and writing tons of tracks. Good luck! http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=15415
  21. Good stuff, grabbed this up. I remember "Sidewinder" from a while back.
  22. Great production, background elements sound fantastic. Violin does sound a little unnatural, and I agree that the panning is a little extreme sounding on headphones. Good to see another mix from you.
  23. I had to swap out my motherboard for a new one, and after reinstalling Windows, am working to get all my sample paths working again. Finally upgraded to FL 10 as well. All three of mine are 99.8% done; will get final wav renders to you soon.
