Hard Disk Recording- Internal Vs External

There's absolutely no mistaking it. These internal drives sound MUCH better.

Word Verification


I've switched on Word Verification for comments posting.
That's not to be anarchic or anything, but going through deleting spam sucks...
[though... if you think it's bad here, you should see the Sonalksis forum... I reckon we spend an hour per day cleaning it up!! :(]

And my blog appears to have been dead for a few days... so hopefully a sharp republish should help fix things :)

Mono Versions not working in Logic 5...

Mental note to self,
Please observe that VST process() is declared deprecated in VST2.4...
so if you don't declare it with the right name, it doesn't override the right function...
[i.e. DECLARE_VST_DEPRECATED(process)(...)]


Essentials Mk2 UIs


While most people really like the MK2 UIs (some even claiming that they make things sound better), it has not escaped my attention that there are some people who do not like them.

Make no mistake, I appreciate that some people won't like them- that's true for ANY piece of artwork... and I do care about your feelings, and I want to give you ACE products...
Just EXPECT to receive NOTHING but "diplomatic" (i.e. content-free) replies from me on the topic.

My alternatives to being diplomatic are:
Insult my graphics artist for your enjoyment; which would be a disgusting thing to do, since he IS a very talented, very capable artist, and a very nice guy to boot. So I'm not doing that.
Insult YOU! Which I'm not going to do, because I DO believe that your opinions are valid, and I'm not the sort of mental bastard who wants to shoot his customers (not mentioning any SPECIFIC competitors... ;) so I'm not doing that EITHER.

To be clear, I have only a very limited control over graphics, so I'm just not the right person to talk to, but there IS a feedback form on the site, designed for SPECIFICALLY this sort of thing, and that will go DIRECTLY to the right people :)

Anyway, I like em :P

I got a rowing machine!

I have decided I need to get more healthy.

So I bought a rowing machine!! :D It's a sculling one (the pullcord ones don't appeal to me at all... being able to actually row a boat feels more useful...), and it's really good.
I have been eating more healthily too; lots of natural yoghurt and fruit.

It's ACE :)

I have been fixing buglets today. I'm going to do a 2.01 (or do we only release even numbers? 2.02?) revision of the Essentials, which will be slightly tidier. There's a few cosmetic things bugging me, so I am tidying :D
