  1. In the market for a good windows laptop to run Ableton. I know a lot of them have issues with DPC latencies but do any of you use windows laptops with Ableton? Recommendations welcome
  2. Right knee aching since 2020. A pain that originates on the inner side of the knee and shoots up the thigh when its bad. MRI appear normal. Physical therapy has no effect. Idk lol, any suggestions?
  3. Loved it. Haven't had that much fun at the movies for a long time. Great to go in not knowing anything
  4. The fact that the flight is from Miami to Los Angeles is kind of perfect.
  5. Very good, love the drums and the chords sound great. Kind of reminds me of James Blake. I'd try to tame the dynamics a bit. The drum parts might break someone's stereo 😉
  6. Had my phone stolen the other day, about $300 gone. Question for those who are tech savvy. Should I get a new phone number or am I good keeping my current one? I was using a Google Pixel 4a with an eSIM. I changed all the passwords that were associated with the phone but I'm afraid of a duped phone number. Should I be worried about security or is the more likely outcome that the phone is being sold for parts?
  7. I found this film very hard to watch. Loved it until after the first short but felt overwhelmed with all the minute detail. During the last short, I closed my eyes in the theater for a bit because I couldn't keep up. I think this would work a lot better watching each short on their own instead of watching the movie as a whole in one sitting. Wes has reached peak Anderson
  8. Yea I ended up ordering a refurbished Pixel 4a. I had a chance to feel out a Pixel 5 which has similar dimensions and its definitely a goldilocks phone when it comes to size. The battery is kind of a bummer but not a deal breaker, and theres always the option to bring a portable battery/charger for longer trips. Hoping that when I need another phone in 3-4 years, the market will edge smaller
  9. To be honest, that was a very fair throw. I was imaging an over handed throw that came too fast
  10. In the market for a new phone but astonished at how large phones have gotten. Already thought my phone from 4 years ago was too big (Moto G5 Plus) but now the standard budget phone is even larger. Every choice feels like a compromise.
  11. This kind of music is so emotionally manipulative
  12. Do you guys put the compressor before or after EQ?
  13. Don't know if this was already posted, but there's a pretty good podcast about nu metal called The P.O.D Kast. They review an album every month https://thepodkast.libsyn.com/ Also, never got too into Korn as a band but they have some incredible singles:
  14. Its a shame because I think this movie could have been really good. I loved the premise and thought it could have been a really good existential horror movie (Synecdoche, New York does a similar thing really well). But of course, its M Night so its not going to be done well. That feeling of time moving much faster than expected hits close to home. So idk, I'm still holding out for a good horror movie on aging. Anyone read the comic/manga this movie was based on? I think its called Sandcastle
  15. Could be considered a first world achievement. Seems unhealthy to be friends with someone who wants to stay in their own political echo chamber
  16. This is really bad. Music has this great opportunity to explore feels and emotions without words but throwing empty astrology quotes takes away from a decent piano track. Although this is bad, I still think Immunity is really good despite some cheese near the end.
  17. I don't make copies but instead use the "racks". There are instrument racks where you can stack as many midi instruments as your computer can handle. There are also audio effect racks where you can do the same with audio effects. There are also volume/mule/solo controls for each chain so you can kind of mix a rack
  18. One thing I do a lot is splitting audio with audio effect racks. For instance, you could have a high, mid and low range and each range could have its own delay with different timing. Or saturate/overdrive the frequency bands in different ways.
  19. So here's where I'm at. I feel good about the system so far and I'm at a nice stopping point where I don't have the strong desire to get new modules yet. But I've been trying to plan out how to use my last 14HP. I feel like I have enough modulation modules and thinking of filling the rest of the case up with more audio processing modules. Any recommendations?
  20. In some ways its a market bubble and possible hoarding combined with these units crapping out and needing repair after a few years of use and abuse. I think the price will just keep on rising. It might get mythologized the same way as the TB303. The TB303 being a somewhat simple synth/sequencer with a lot of character and history backing it up. Personally, I wish Roland reissued the SP303 with a modern storage format instead of continuing to sell SP404A's (which are basically 404SX's in new clothing)
  21. SP303. Great little sampler I wasn't using for a while, so I sold it for $200 a few years ago. I wanted to buy another one last year and now their going for $600-$700. Tried an SP404 and it just wasn't the same imo, loops clicked a lot if you weren't on the zero crossing point (which i don't remember the 303 doing)
