  1. It's basically "Tik Tok does the same awful stuff every other social media company does, but this one is from CHIII-NAAAH so here's some spooky music"
  2. I've been off all other social media (most of it I never got on to begin with) for years, but I can't shake Youtube/Twitch.
  3. Ooooh. I got some cheap monitor stands in a trade a couple years ago but I don't have any space to set them up. They'd be fine if I filled the tubes with sand to stop them from ringing. Anyway, even budget stands are kind of overpriced. If you have access to minimal tools, this is a pretty easy DIY option: https://www.tnt-audio.com/clinica/stubby_e.html I used to have a set of them I made, they worked fine. That whole site is quite a relic of crusty old web 1.0 audiophile stuff, but with an emphasis on keeping things as cheap as possible so it's actually pretty useful. I think the turntable stand I built 4 or 5 years ago is based on one of their designs, too.
  4. I use this and it works well and is a lot more solid than I expected for the price. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07S1V2VN7/ But I had to have a vertical dual monitor setup and not pay much, so my options were really limited. EDIT: of course a couple months later my eighbor gave me a bigger monitor that doesn't have a VESA mount, and the mount adapter I need costs as much as the whole monitor stand so I'm back to keeping the primary monitor on top of a pile of rack gear for now.
  5. As far as I can tell, what happened is the PT10 installer tried to install a really old iLokdriver even though I have the current one installed. Neither the PT10 installer nor the iLok installer ever detected that there was ANY version already installed. When it got to the point where I had to reboot to complete the installation, the old iLok installer ran into some kind of issue because of the current drivers already being loaded and it just broke everything and stopped Windows from booting entirely. I just rolled back the iLok installation completely and everything worked fine, even though the PT10 installer gave me a warning that there was no iLok driver installed (there was). That would be bad for C-tier 90s shareware.
  6. https://www.elektronauts.com/t/a-polished-version-of-merlins-ot-guide-here/42860 Or do what I did and book a show before you actually get it so you have a hard deadline. I just barely learned enough to pull off a semi-improvised, 25 minute set in about 20 days with that method, and I think it worked well. It's easier to not get caught up with trying to do everything when you know in a couple weeks you'll have to be able to pull of something in front of an audience. I've been using it for 4 years now and I'd say I've learned maybe 15% of it really well at this point. I've still never used the arranger. EDIT: I'm also using it in a completely different way now than I did the first year. Almost no overlap.
  7. The whole Save the Kids crypto scam implosion that's unfolding right now is extremely entertaining EDIT: I mean, other than the part where a bunch of mostly teenagers were scammed. That sucks. But the schadenfreude of watching crypto douches and INFLUENCERS fucking themselves is rich.
  8. I'm up to 6 working, 1 that has speed issues but should be fine with a new belt, and 6 more that are less promising (but one or two might still be OK with new belts).
  9. PMD221 Did basic tests on them. 4 work perfectly, 1 or 2 are probably fucked, and the rest might be fine and might not be, a few need belts but they all have various degrees of quiet/muddy audio and it's just down to whether it's cleaning or head alignment (fixable) or head wear (i.e. sell cheap for parts). But even if we didn't sell any for parts and only ended up with four, that's around $60 each and that's still really good. EDIT: also the most messed up one is permanently stuck in record but otherwise seems fine, so if we can't fix the record switch we will probably keep that one, take out the erase head completely and use it as a dedicated sound-on-sound looper.
  10. Nah, they have $10 price stickers on them from the government surplus sale and he turned out to have mutual friends (one of them showed up while we were talking) so I think he was legit. They come from a police dispatch, hopefully they aren't too worn out.
  11. Yeah, I've considered it but the jankiness of those old Quake and Build engine games is a big part of the charm for me so I haven't quite bit yet. I might just take a rest on half life and play through Shadow Warrior or something. I was never as in to the Build stuff as a kid but I've been really enjoying it lately.
  12. I will, although we're trying to keep as many as we can.
  13. Not technically mine yet, a friend and I got all of them plus four Eiki 7070a classroom cassette/CD combo decks (with CD pitch control) and about 50 unused blank cassettes for $213 this afternoon from a random dude on the street. My friend fronted the money, I'm going to test them all and then we're going to ebay a couple to cover our expenses, divide the rest between us, and then set up a giant delay network with about 10 three head cassette decks running in parallel.
