  1. Did end up going for the MPK, as suggested. Thanks for the advice, all!
  2. So I figured I'd spend some of my tax returns getting something to help getting into music creation, and I went looking for decent midi controllers for input. The local recycle shop has some used ones for sale, and I figured I'd get your input on them. They have both a Roland A-800 Pro and an Akai MPK61 avialable for about $250 each. Well there's also a Yamaha CS2X for $200-ish, but that was made in 1999, so no USB. Any thoughts?
  3. Some BG2 goodness Here are some of the funnier bits: Sarevok: I orchestrated a war to slaughter thousands. I have felt the cold embrace of death. I have witnessed the horrors of the abyss. But you, Viconia... you scare me. Imoen: So... Sarevok. You've had an itty-bitty piece of my soul in there for quite a while now. What's it been like? Sarevok: Well, other than a slight obsession with my weight and the resurgence of a few pimples, it's been simply grand. Dradeel: One has lots of time for reflection while waiting for the ENDLESS WAVES OF BAD DOGGIE WEREWOLF MONSTERS THAT CHEW YOUR TOES
  4. "Her working name is 'Happy Endings?' Subtle..."
  5. *sigh* Guess I'll order a PSP then... really thought I could get by with just one handheld...
  6. Here's a site with a couple of drumkit soundfonts. http://www.michaelkingston.fi/kingstondrums/ruffrider.html EDIT: sorry, not what you were asking for. just woke up.
  7. A search on the guy came up with nothing so I thought I'd post this here. This guy, Vadrum, has been putting out videos of him drumming to the NES Mario games, among other things. It's pretty amazing stuff. Check it out. http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=SZqwvjwqwK4&feature=related http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=EF9e2ZVAapE&feature=related http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=dXKN1j_vrn4
  8. by the way, has anyone mentioned After Forever yet? They have some samples up on myspace. Awesome band.
  9. IMO, if you can remove the element or instrument and still have something that sounds like a listenable song, then that element or instrument wasn't truly part of the song in the first place and was just slapped on to give the same genre slightly different feel. After all, is Metallica a symphonic metal band because an orchestra backed them in S&M? On the other hand, if, upon removing an element or instrument, you are left with something that can no longer rightly be called a song at all, that element was an integral part of the music and helped to define what it was. Example: Symphony
  10. Which is why I don't care about them. People with money going for more money. If they get it, great. If not, fine. The only reason this is even a blip on my radar is that I watch Heroes. But you know what? If Heroes stops showing I'll find some other way to occupy that one hour each week.
  11. The update to the Playstation Network is completely meaningless to me until it allows me to register with an APO address. I emailed Sony's support staff and got a reply that basically said "We'll get around to it. Sorry." I have never seen a company so damned lazy in my life(well XBox 360 has the same problem, so Microsoft ties). All they have to do is add AP, AE, etc to the options for state and they gain hundreds or even thousands of subscriptions from military members overseas.
  12. I wish. I remember when I was younger, my mom worked at a place that assembles motorboats. The company decided to close down some factories and initially wanted to close the northern ones. The given reason for this is that the workers in the south were unable to join the unions, which originated up north, and because of this the southern factories operated cheaper and had a higher output(no union means you have to work a lot harder to keep your job). The owner's lawyer informed him that the law says he has to shut non-union sites before he can close union ones, so he closes the one my mom
  13. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsxp/default.mspx Built into Windows since XP. Opens up just like a folder too. On the other hand, I still can't download the torrent file from either the ocremix site or the soundtempest mirror that Zircon was kind enough to provide.
  14. OK. Now I am utterly mystified. I have the exact same issue with that link as I do with the one on ocremix. But I can download other files from SoundTempest with no problems. I think my PC just doesn't want me to download the wav version of this thing. Stoopid PC. Anyway, thanks for going to the trouble to set that up, Zircon. Maybe I'll have better luck with one of them tomorrow.
