  1. Heard the preview and was instantly sold. I'm really excited to hear this album! On a side note, I really respect how much effort you put into both your music and giving back to others. Backing the project is the least I can do for all the years of fantastic remixes and tutorials!
  2. One listen and I already know I love this track. I'll be listening to this one A LOT in the future! And it only took 3 HOURS?!?!?! Jeeze, what a beast! Keep it up man- can't wait for the new album!
  3. I can! http://www.image-line.com/documents/news.php?entry_id=1291848707&title=fl-studio-50%-off
  4. Just heard this song at the end of one of those Extra Credits videos. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/extra-credits/1961-Free-Speech Has this song been posted to the site yet? If no, WHY THE HECK NOT?!?
  5. Can I get an invite also? http://steamcommunity.com/id/rorob Thanks!
  6. Maybe this will help? http://woolyss.com/chipmusic-soundfonts.php Specifically this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-6ulun8epM
  7. I bookmarked this website in January on my Delicious account, and have been meaning to ask if anyone had heard of it before. http://realmusicmedia.net/samples.html I'm wanting to download some of these loop libraries, but I CAN'T afford to get a virus because of carelessness. So I ask- has anyone been here before who can vouch to it's credibility and safety?
  8. No preferences, but I'd really like to see it- those all sound like great points to hit.
  9. http://www.image-line.com/documents/news.php?entry_id=1280272294&title=all-plugins-49-sale In case you didn't see it already. The sale runs until the end of August btw. I'm considering getting Maximus- anyone already have it?
  10. Wow, I had never seen these before! What an awesome series! Great job- looking forward to watching new episodes! Oh, and congrats on your job at Pixar!!!
  11. Ok, so I decided to go laptop. I'm most likely going to get an HP in the next few days here. This comment is still haunting me- So I'm curious- will using EWQL really pack that hard a punch? Will my laptop really suffer from casually using this software? Will other applications slow down as a result? Will this hinder the laptop that I'm going to depend on during college?
  12. That would be AMAZING! Please consider doing the tutorials- I know I'm not the only one here who wants them.
  13. OH YES. Dude, you're on a roll! CHEETAH kicked major ass, and now this?!? I'm in awe of your skills man. I KNOW this will get posted. It's too good not to be. I concur. Specifically, I'd like to know more about that glorious bass of yours. AMAZING MIX.
  14. Great to see DKR getting coverage. I laughed at the "who-who's" thrown in there. But in all seriousness, this is one slamming mix. Everything composition wise is super tight- didn't get bored for a second. Heck of an intro too- it definitely hooked me into the mix. I suppose there are issues with production to be picked at, but in my opinion they don't drag Guifrog's mix down. This is creative, inspired, and downright good stuff. Very much looking forward to more!
  15. I'm not sure if they'll be cool with that, but I might be able to do it. So are you saying that I could remote access a desktop from campus with a router in my dorm? Those sure do look nice, but I'm going to have to start pinchin pennies if I want a nice computer. How do these look? http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATHM40FS-Precision-Headphones/dp/B0002D03ZW/ref=pd_cp_MI_1 They've gotten pretty good reviews, and they're about half the price.
  16. Ok, so will an external drive fix that? From what they said at Orientation, it's decent. http://www.baylor.edu/its/index.php?id=46470 Thanks for the tips! Ok you've convinced me, I'm going to start looking at HP's laptops.
  17. Well I'm thinking of going into Information Systems/ Technology or something like that, but I'm still pretty shaky about it all. I don't have to decide on a major until Sophomore year, but I'm pretty set on business. That said, I really have no idea what software I'll be needing to install for my classes. I'm thinking that being prepared would be the best idea. Yeah, that part. We were told at Orientation that we would be using Ethernet cables in the dorms, because the wifi inside sucks. Ah well.I won't be majoring in music, so I'm not looking for a super professional set up. Hell, I don't even have a decent pair of monitoring speakers or headphones. Uh, now that I think about it, could someone recommend me a pair of headphones? Anyways, all I'm really looking to do now is make music as a hobby, and maybe get a mix posted here one day. But that's a ways off. If someone could elaborate on this...Oh, how's this looking? Hot or cold? http://www.dell.com/us/en/home/notebooks/laptop-studio-1450/pd.aspx?refid=laptop-studio-1450&s=dhs&cs=19&~oid=us~en~29~laptop-studio-1450-cto1~~
  18. That's some excellent advice, and quite frankly I'd love to have a desktop to work on. Unfortunately, I just don't think that'll be the most practical thing for me during school. I'll probably be doing a decent amount of work outside the dorm, and though I might be able to get by with a netbook, there's the chance that some of my classes down the road might require me to use software that will run poorly on it. I guess for me it really boils down to a matter of convenience- I want to be able to take all of my work with me and not have to retreat to my dorm as much. My family has used our Dell Inspiron E1505 for more than 2 years, and it hasn't really broken down aside from some crapped out batteries. I can run FL Studio fairly well, but you're right, it's pretty slowed down. That's why I was considering an external hard drive and maybe some upgrades to the RAM in my next laptop. I figured since this one is rather dated that I could squeeze better performance out of a newer model, and back up everything to make sure that I don't lose it all. In the end, I really think that a laptop, though risky and less efficient, will be the best option for me. Please don't take this as an insult though- I truly respect and value your advice. With my choice in mind, do you think you could still make some recommendations as to how I should proceed?
  19. Hey everyone. I'm going to be getting a new Dell laptop in the very near future for college, and wanted some advice as to what kinds of features it should have to accommodate my needs. I'll be running FL Studio and East West's Silver Orchestra, as well as a little TF2 on Steam. I've never been a computer gamer, so I was wondering if I'm going to need a better graphics card or something to be able to run that well enough. More importantly, I really would like to know how much RAM I'll need to be able to efficiently work on my music projects. I've always heard that the rule of thumb is "the more RAM the better", but maxing out is pretty expensive to do. However, if it will make things smoother, I think I can shell out for it. Does the processor make much of a difference- specifically, is that worth upgrading as well? If so, to what extent? One other thing: Since I'm running the Silver Edition of the East West library, I'll only have 11 GB of samples. Should I invest in an external hard drive to keep those on, or just put them on the laptop's hard drive? I've heard that it's easier to work with the samples off an external, but I don't know if it'll make that much of a difference with a smaller library like this. As far as models, right now I'm looking at the "Studio" and "Inspirion" lines, but I'm open to suggestions. I don't think I can buy outside of Dell, (my parents are helping me buy it, and they insist on a Dell) but if there's a solid laptop of a different brand that you know of I'd like to hear from you. I can always try to talk them out of their stubborn ways. (If I left anything out, please comment on that as well.) Thanks for your time!
  20. I think the closest you can get (for free anyways) is with Soundfonts. That's what I've been using. Check out Squidfont. http://soundfonts.darkesword.com/ You'll need a Soundfont player too. I personally use the Fruity Soundfont Player Plugin: http://flstudio.image-line.com/documents/soundfontplayer.html but I think there are plenty of free ones out there. Apparently this is a pretty good free player. http://www.kvraudio.com/get/769.html
  21. Awesome track!!! It was a light, bouncy, full and fleshed out piece! I loved it! Can't wait to hear the rest of the album! Congratulations!
