    That creeps me out.  I always (apparently very naively) assumed the attacks were always aimed at the big boys.

    That's really good advice. 


    Pavlov is 100% correct.  I've a 25 year career in IT, and it has become insane over the past few years.

    I recently did a site visit to one of our small sales offices - my IT team has been implementing new Layer 7 firewalls across our enterprise.  I went to observe this specific implementation, and within minutes of standing this new office (minutes, not hours), we were seeing nonstop attacks from China, Turkey, Russia, the US, and Romania. In an office of 8 people.  Its not just the big boys - it's everyone.

    It was insane.  My group told me they see the same thing, time after time.

     Security is so important, but it's pretty clear that a lot of small business -- including small music developers and retailers that we use -- don't have great security practices or even very thorough web  processes at all

    I once watched a drum duet performed by Phil Collins and his Genesis tour drummer. Two drum kits. It sounded like a single drummer with 4 arms and 4 feet. They were that tight! Totally frickin awesome! 👍

    Chester Thompson is his name.

    Check their work here - probably the best live version of Fifth of Firth out there:

    Moving from Version 2 to 5 for $79 is no brainier territory, if it’s your main DAW. As I’m on version 4, I would hope to upgrade from 4 directly to 6 for a similar price in the future. Or, I’d go to 5.x if they actually included a new feature that I could imagine using. 

    I just had this conversation with Larry recently.   I use Cubase as my only DAW right now.   There are only two issues I have with Cubase - its expensive, and I have to purchase/maintain two copies.  I travel frequently, and hotels suck without something to do, so I generally do learning/music work in the evenings.  I travel with a Surface Pro, and I don't care to take my ELicenser everywhere.   So, that means I had to buy a copy of Cubase Elements.  And that cost adds up.

    I actually kind of like the look of S1, and it would be nice to have the same DAW everywhere, and not maintain two copies.  That is why I bought that cheapo Epix bundle earlier this year - to get the cheap S1 2 Producer knowing I could upgrade cheaply this holiday season.  

    Cubase is great for Midi and external instruments.  S1 still doesn't support patch scripts/instrument files.  And I just am now getting used to Cubase.  Do I really need another DAW?  I have just a couple hours to decide.

    Quite honestly, what I should do is just go back to Sonar/Cakewalk.  :)

    You don’t. I’m in the same boat. But I won’t use the Show Page or the Score Editor, or an enhanced mixer scenes thingy, I don’t care that the PreSonus FX look prettier. It’s the most useless update ever. Come on, be strong and resist 

    Well, I only have the Studio One 2 Producer (got it in one of those cheap bundles), so I really don't have anything.

  6. I've spent the better part of a month creating Cubase track icons for various things.  I figured I would give them away to anyone who wishes to have them.

    I've included VSTs from Air, Arturia, Native Instruments, Reaktor Ensembles, Steinberg, KV 331, Izotope, U-He, UVI, etc.

    I also created icons for every Kontakt Library in Komplete Ultimate, as well as third party libraries from 8Dio, Cinematic Studio, East West, Ethera, Orange Tree Samples, Sample Logic, XLN, etc.

    They are free to anyone who wants them, and can be downloaded here:

    Yeah, they always had a lot of sales, but this entire year has been a sale. It doesn't make sense anymore.

    But, to be fair, Waves has  released some really nice plugins at some really good prices this year.  

  8. OK, for those of you who are thinking of this.  Buying the Anthology Strings (currently $98) WILL get you all four Adagio libraries as well at a nominal cross grade fee.

    You buy Anthology, then send support a request to cross grade to the Adagios.  They will send you a coupon to buy Adagio Violins for $8.  Once you purchase that, they will put the Violas, Cellos, and Bass into your account.

    So, for a grand total of $106, you can get Anthology as well as the complete Adagio set.

    (PS, don't think less of me Matthew).

    Yep, but I still gotta buy Christmas presents for my niece and nephew. Can't disappoint them!

    Your niece wants Diva, and your nephew wants Repro.
