  1. I used a segment of K. Praslowicz "Fear and Sufferance" remix as my primary ringtone on my phone for about 4 years now.
  2. Using FL always makes me feel like I'm cheating myself somehow. The cutesy buttons and knobs never helped endear me either.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Seconded for sonar. I've used Cakewalk off and on since 1996 or so, and Sonar is the logical progression.
  8. I embarrassingly easy to contact. You can probably even find a cell number if you needed it. BTW k.pras if you ever come back to music, I still want to collab again.
  9. A clip of fear and sufferance has been my ringtone for about 5 years now.
  10. 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.
  12. Spinrite is a perennial favorite of mine for low level recovery. Don't know what you're trying to fix though.
  13. 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
  14. Olivia Grace Newman was born today at 4:30pm! 8lb 20oz, 22in.
  15. 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.
  16. That happens when Quicktime gets set as the MIME handler for mp3. When you first install quicktime you can dig through the settings and really neuter what it claims control over, specifying only QT formats.
  17. http://cotmm.mine.nu/mp3/ it says mp3 but they're all lossless. server should be wicked fast too. Not all of it has obvious file names, some of them are whatever the 'project' name was. Not all are video game remixes, not all of them are OCRemixes. If I can dig up more, I'll upload them.
  18. I've got a fair number of my tracks in lossless that I'll upload somewhere later.
  19. Lauren (Elizabeth) wholly approves of your remix, sir. Pics or it didn't happen:
  20. his remix of Celldweller's Birthright http://www.last.fm/music/Celldweller/_/Birthright+%28Birthwrong+remix+by+Blue+Stahli%29 is perhaps the single most correct application of glitch that has ever been. If you haven't heard it yet, I heartily recommend it. Then go listen to Celldweller out right. I'm not sure there could be more perfect music than his.
  21. More than 30 minutes of ambient Tetris goodness in glorious 5.1! http://brahmsbbs.servebbs.org/ocr/CotMM-Korbeiniki-BattleofChernobyl.ac3 Enjoy, if you dare. (:

    Wow, cognitive dissonance++ I had never heard anything negative about X-Arcade sticks before now. I'll have to do more research into it. I've looked around and seen people saying "overpriced", "sucks", and "lags on consoles". But nothing I've ready really seems to quantify those sentiments in a way I should know what to look for in an alternative. What about the components is so terrible? Why don't concave buttons make sense? It's never going to be hooked up to anything but a PC, so I don't think that lag is an issue. I'm not much of a fighter player, the first game I fired up on it was Magical Drop III. That's about as twitchy as I get playing a game. I plan for this machine to be something my kids can play growing up, so at 16 months and -6 months old I've got plenty of time to redesign the controls in the future if need be. With access to the woodworking place here, that small amount of wood and the tools to do whatever I want with it are basically free, so you've got me thinking about building my own deck. Of course when I start thinking in that direction it makes me want to go wild and build a 4-player deck, but that starts pushing the price of the components up quite a bit. Looked at some encoders and controllers over at LizardLick.com and for just two players after shipping it was already up to $175, and that's not including a trackball. Either way thanks for the feedback and suggestions. edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16879994002 8 buttons, Hori made, $45 free shipping. It's a PS3 controller but it's suppose to work on the PC out of the box. Comments?

    I didn't make it clear that the console style controls sitting there are just a placeholder until I get some sort of arcade controls. I looked through the site that Drack posted and didn't see any other two-player sticks with a trackball at that price point. Kinda made me sad, as I have no attachment to that specific controller, and was hoping to find something at a better price. As for covering the KB drawer, I thought about various ways of having that covered so the front was solid but decided it would be too frustrating to have a fully functional computer sitting there that couldn't be actually used as a computer at a moments notice. A few construction details: The layout was designed in Autodesk Inventor 2009 to fit a Tankstick and that specific 19" monitor in as small a footprint as possible. The side panels were each cut as one piece from 3/4th inch MDF board with a CNC router, and all the interior boards holding it together were cut out of the scrap left over from those boards. It's very very solid. (: All the wood was cut and assembled over at one of my employers sister company: Sawtail Architectural Millworks / http://www.sawtailproducts.com/ A few other pictures here: http://brahmsbbs.servebbs.org/store/cabinet/

    What's wrong with a tankstick? it looks like the easiest integration, combines all the inputs i'm interested in, and is turnkey ready.

    Just wanted to brag and show off a bit My new toy. Still need to get an X-Arcade Tankstick for it and black the beige of the monitor behind the bezel, but it's fully serviceable at the moment. Here's a schematic if you wanted to build your own: http://brahmsbbs.servebbs.org/store/cabinet/19crt_Cabinet_iso.pdf
