  1. I've had quite the nasty flu for the past 4 days so I'm hoping I'll be back to feeling 100% in a couple more. Shouldn't pose too much of a problem though.
  2. I think it's Mountain Lion tbh. Like I said, no issues in Snow Leopard. But maybe it could be the computer in some way? It wouldn't be the signs of the hard drive failing would it?
  3. I only edited my post to add my computer specs. The issue occurs with both Logic 9 and 10.
  4. I have a Mid-2010 iMac with 12GB RAM. Definitely have plenty of memory to spare. Thanks for your input though!
  5. Hey folks, so ever since I went from Snow Leopard (10.6.8 ) to Mountain Lion (10.8.5), I have been getting random CPU spikes. Pretty much what's happening is that at random, my CPU will spike when using Logic Pro X (and Logic Pro 9), and will prevent me from doing anything because the audio will stutter. It doesn't matter how big or small the project is. Increasing the buffer size will help negate the audio stuttering if it's only one instrument, but once I had a few more the same thing happens again. I'm going to include a screen capture of the issue happening, and then 20 minutes later, I play the exact same thing and the problem completely disappears. This completely blows my mind, and it's impossible to re-create the issue because I don't know what's causing it. Also, I've noticed that when playing music in general (let's say from iTunes, or from youtube, or soundcloud), and the CPU spikes are happening in Logic, I quickly shut logic down and listened for any audio stuttering. It happens even when Logic isn't open, so this leads me to think that it has to be an OSX issue. I mean, in over 3 years using Snow Leopard, I never had a single CPU issue. Then I wanted to try Logic Pro X and upgraded to Mountain Lion, and that's when the problem started. If ANYONE has any ideas or suggestions to how I can get closer to finding a solution, I would be very grateful. Is there someone I can contact at Apple? Should I send them this video or something? Anything helps guys, and thanks in advance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4mlpRtrzZ8 Computer specs: OSX 10.8.5 3.2 Ghz Intel Core i3 12 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Logic Pro 9.1.8 Logic Pro 10.0.5 Apogee ONE interface
  6. This may not be what you want to hear, but practice practice practice The more you write, the better you'll get. Also, listen to a lot of music that inspires you. My desktop is full of artists who inspire me in some way, and I often go back to their music when I'm writing my own to draw inspiration from them.
  7. Hey folks, made another quick tutorial so thought I'd share it with ya! Enjoy
  8. Good read, thanks for posting Mr. Zircon. I'm working on my next album which will be released on a couple of other labels, non-exclusive, so I presume I'd still be eligible for my album to also be released on OC Records as well (granted I submit it and it gets the thumbs up by the OC Records team)? Or am I missing some 'fine print'?
  9. Maybe they can focus on selling titles and portable gaming devices instead of the big hardware consoles.. i definitely dont want to see nintendo go down the "pipes" AHHHHHH sorry for the pun
  10. Soooo any news on what this will play like? You think it'll be more brawl-y or more melee-y? I'm talking in terms of competitiveness (i.e. melee).
  11. I was in Silver III but have recently been moved to IV. I usually play Jungle or Support, but I'd be down to play with any of you guys some time. Is this 5-team thing something different than the usual ranked?
  12. I think Logic is a great DAW for composing songs in general. I do think they have good orchestral sounds for an "included in the box" item, but you're right - they aren't amazing; they're just good, and better than what most DAWs offer IMO. I don't really see the point of the argument though. Use what works for you. I like Logic, I brag about it and tell people it's great, but I won't go out of my way to prove it to them. If they want to use something else and boast about it, so be it. I work well in Logic and do my best to support it.
  13. hahahha I don't know who he is. Some kind of imposter I think!

  14. Oh ok I see. I probably should have taken a glance under your name and seen the other information available which would have given me a much better idea of what you're capable of
  15. http://www.amazon.ca/Mixing-Secrets-Small-Studio-Senior/dp/0240815807 Take everything in moderation. Books are great. Online articles are great (sound on sound is fantastic). Forums are excellent. Video tutorials are good too. The most important thing I think is just SPENDING MANY MANY HOURS WORKING IN YOUR DAW. Also, read the part of this wiki page that talks about the 10,000 hour rule: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outliers_(book)
  16. Just gonna say to anyone else who clicks on this thread, that this is a really good deal. I bought Damage for like $260 a year ago...
  17. Ummm I don't really have the time to read all of this... but from the few lines I did read, my answer would be to invest in a decent microphone and a soundcard. If that's too expensive, then maybe get yourself a USB microphone with a pop-filter. Make sure the room you're recording in is quiet (windows shut, no one vacuuming in the room next to you... and keep an ear out for how loud your computer fan is...). Do some light research on "proximity effect" and how it affects your voice when being recorded. I think this, combined with the above, should help you out.
  18. IMO Elder Scrolls should stay a single-player game. That's what it excels at.
  19. Ummm I guess use my real name. I'm starting to phase out Syllix so I guess it would make sense to start here using my real name.

  20. I just want everyone to know that whether you're a pancake or a lizard... you're precious to me no matter what.
  21. Tossed my picks in not too long ago. Thanks for holding a spot :)
