    Still using SONAR?

    2018.08 was the last version that I tried. If I get time this weekend I will check out the latest version.

    CbC is unusable for me until the PRV bug gets fixed.

    Forum members /home country ?

    Victoria, Australia Time zone UTC+10 On the old forum there would have been no need to ask this question. It was always displayed under the username.
  5. I have never seen any multisamples belonging to a VSTi that are anything other than 44.1k. This includes DimPro, Rapture, Battery, SampleTank, etc.
  6. Take all the time you need, but 6¼ minutes should be sufficient. It's a cover of Bowie's Space Oddity, but it also includes a load of scripted dialog representing mission control. I posted some details about it in the Songs forum a while back: http://forum.cakewalk.com/m3775408.aspx I was working on it alongside people with physical and mental disabilities. The purpose of the exercise was to involve as many people as possible who happened to be in the building at the time. Not everybody could sing or play an instrument, so spoken dialog seemed like a good way to include everyone. It's on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/slsoundpro/so7
  7. My biggest ever project had 303 tracks in total. There would have been even more if not for some bouncing and merging along the way. But this did include some unused takes, unused 3rd-party midi tracks, guide tracks and failed experiments, all of which were eventually archived, but not deleted. The project was very complex and took over 3 years to complete.

    Good sounding Reverb/Room?

    I'm a fan of 2CAudio Aether. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. A trial is available if you want to check it out. Installation and authorization are simple and straightforward. https://www.2caudio.com/products/aether/#_overview This product has been around for a while. Here is a review of an early release: https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/2caudio-aether

    Anyone using more than one DAW?

    I use Harrison Mixbus32C sometimes, just for a change. I've got Digital Performer too, but I've never really got to grips with it and it seems to have fallen out of use lately. I want to get back into it when I have more time to spare.
  10. Sure. Expectation can and does influence perception. But I was struck by the way that the people I know all became polarized into two groups in a way that seemed to be consistent with the left-right thing. The image of the shoe has been posted on several sites and only a small minority of respondents have said that they see pink. I was curious to know whether posting it on a musicians' forum would yield a different result. That was my reason for posting it here.
  11. Pretty much every widely accepted idea has its critics and detractors. Try googling anything and include the word "myth".
  12. Thanks for sharing your expertise. My perception of the colours in the shoe picture changed back and forth according to whatever I had just been engaged in. On the one hand it was technical stuff and on the other it was visual or musical. Surely this is an example of right-left brain phenomena, just like the spinning girl example. Or, if it is something different, then what is it and how is it different?
  13. Apparently so do the vast majority of the population. I'm in the minority.
  14. I've been searching but I can't find a definitive science-based statement about any of this. Only hearsay so far.
  15. Maybe most of you have seen this already, as it's been on various social media sites. Apparently, different people perceive this picture in one of two ways, depending on which side of their brain is dominant. It's actually a pink shoe with white laces, but a slightly-greenish blue has been overlaid on the image, dramatically altering the colours of the main elements in the picture. If your left-brain is dominant you will take what you see at face value and see blue laces and a grey shoe. On the other hand, the right-brain automatically make allowances for the lighting conditions and sees the original pink shoe. I got called into the lounge room to settle in argument between family members. My wife had been the only one to see a pink shoe, while the other people in the room couldn't see any pink in the picture at all. They were wondering whether this was due to my wife having recently suffering a stroke, until I said that I too was seeing a pink shoe. The right/left brain explanation seems plausible to me. I returned to the room later and the image was still on the computer screen but this time I was seeing bright blue laces and a grey shoe. I had just been working on an assignment for a part-time library studies course that I'm doing. I guess that the other side of my brain must have become active for this. Hence the change in my perception. But next, I walked over to dining table where there was a partly-completed jigsaw puzzle and began to put a few pieces in. I glanced over to the screen and saw the shoe had returned to its pink colour. What do you see? You guys are all musicians and probably have a highly-developed right-brain. This also applies to anyone who spends time doing artwork, craftwork, design or anything visual or spatial, e.g. movies, video, maps, architecture. I'm anticipating that most of you here will see a pink shoe.
