  1. I used a segment of K. Praslowicz "Fear and Sufferance" remix as my primary ringtone on my phone for about 4 years now.

    Need New Seqencing Software

    Using FL always makes me feel like I'm cheating myself somehow. The cutesy buttons and knobs never helped endear me either.

    Help expand my musical experience

    To be fair he did say "experience" in the title. Listening to wide variety or deeply into a single variety could still be quantified as similar experience amounts, albeit different.

    Help expand my musical experience

    I'll go into more detail when I'm not on my phone, but you might also venture into a genre called 'sacred minimalism ' Look up Arvo Pärt on last.FM and go from there.

    Sonar is probably going to fit your needs just fine. What you might think about doing though is a hybrid approach, where you do your arrangement in Sonar, then record/render out individual lines for final mastering/mixing in straight audio format in something like Reaper or Acid. That is what I did for years until Acid finally got midi (albeit rather basic) support for VST/DXis. This gives you pretty infinite flexibility toward the final sound of your track. Feel free to contact me via IM if you want a more in-depth description of that type of set up.

    I'm in 64bit Win7. There is a native 64bit sonar. If you are moving into more audio based mixing you might also look at Sony acid. Oven been using it since 2000 as MT primary DAW. It does MIDI too. I keep hearing good things about Reaper too. Its free so at least worth trying.

    Seconded for sonar. I've used Cakewalk off and on since 1996 or so, and Sonar is the logical progression.

    I had trouble with a machine doingbthe same thing and memtest not running correctly. An older version of memtest worked and scrolled the screen with ram error. He problem was fixed was bumping up thr voltage on the ram a bit.
  11. Speak for yourself. "Code behind the Code" was started back in November of 2004. Never mind that it didn't fully materialize until two days ago.. the seeds were planted almost 6 years ago.

    Good data recovery program for Windows?

    Spinrite is a perennial favorite of mine for low level recovery. Don't know what you're trying to fix though.

    Ambient Internet Radio?

    I listen almost exclusivly to ambient internet radio now a days. My preferred method is last.fm and seeding their player with various artists I already like. Here are some suggestions: http://m.last.fm/music/Atrium+Carceri http://m.last.fm/music/Kammarheit http://m.last.fm/music/Gustaf+Hildebrand

    Graphics card died..?

    You might try popping the card out and doing a visual inspection. I just had two video cards die within a three week period in different computers at work, both of them had exploded capacitors.
