  1. Ugh, my humble account is still "in the timeout box" after getting multiple copies of the recent Magix bundle, and purchases are blocked. I reached out to Humble support to see if they can help
  2. If you find one that you like but the battery is not built-in, you may want to look into AA and AAA li-ion and li-poly batteries, e.g. https://www.amazon.fr/EBL-Rechargeables-3300mWh-Tension-Constante/dp/B08SGQZ56V/ref=sr_1_3 Nowadays that they have fast on-battery usb charging and you don't need to deal with carrying a battery charger, the loss of flexibility should be minimal (note: I pasted an amazon link because they have better descriptions, comments, etc but this is the kind of product that can be found much cheaper from https://aliexpress.com)
  3. I didn't find a freebie but 2 plugins that "are only available for people who have completed the survey", A|B Assist and Jotter ($44 for both) (A|B assist is actually not that exclusive, the AAX version has been available through the Pro Tools downloads for quite a few years) From the page https://nugenaudio.com/after-survey/ click on the button "Buy A/B assist and Jotter" (note that if you click on the links to the product pages you won't be able to buy)
  4. There is a nice tool that does exactly this and I've seen in @Simeon Amburgey 's videos, but I can't remember the name right now (I think it is neither Hornet SongKey nor EZ Keys)
  5. For years the Tascam DP-006 has been consistently my favorite for recording of live choir/orchestra/band performances. I often use a Tascam DR-05 side-by-side, with the DP-006 producing more pleasing results every time. I believe the "magic" is in the microphones, which are omnidirectional and result in a more "open" sound that I consistently like better. I sometimes reduce the omnidirectionality by placing a vocal shield (which reasonably keeps the "openness" but allow for focusing on the stage while reducing potential noises from the audience side) The DP is a more complex machine, with options for multiple track mixing that I never need, since I end up doing all my mixing in the DAW. But I keep using the DP because, for my taste, it just produces nicer sounding recordings. If you don't like omni mics or if size is important, that will probably disqualify the DP. In terms of price, it is generally 50%~100% above the price of the Zoom H1n/DR-05/DR-07
  6. $224 after all discounts. Why is it the price of WUP (300 minus a 25% discount) coming to mind?...
  7. Today I received an email from Xils-lab, with a link to your video. Congrats!
  8. Many, depending on what you are looking for and what you already have. For example 3xOver for simple (3 bands) multi-band processing of anything ThirtyOne for inexpensive auto EQ Total Eq for surgical EQ (unless you already have something like fabfilter, ssl x-eq, or DDMF IIEQ, etc) Elm 128 for a loudness meter with a nicely clean UI
  9. Not a minor band but "very Japanese"
  10. I subscribed but I still don't understand why you keep committing to a single-platform strategy. Isn't it preferable to diversify a little so that if things go sour you have alternatives? And being able to monetize from the beginning without min 1000 subscribers can be an advantage, e.g., on Odysee https://odysee.com/@OregonPacifist:0/youtube-vs.-odysee-earnings-comparison:2 And there is also Rumble, without min # of subscribers
  11. I thought his stepping down was actually announced around the time of Soundwide so, not much of a surprise. I met Dirk in person once at a an IMSTA FESTA in New York City, where he was demoing the bx SSL consoles, and TMT technology. He really radiated shining passion and love for music production. I think he will do great at the Board of Directors, still providing advice and direction, but with more time for himself for enjoying the results of years of hard work.
  12. 18 Magix soundpools for $41.39 (or $22.39 if you got some vouchers from the humblebundle that expired just hours ago) https://producerplanet.com/us/article/soundpool-bundle-bestseller-23764/?license=commercial_unlimited (non-commercial is $20.69) Includes: Big Room Mastercuts - Complete Bundle Future Instrumentals New World Blues Rock Full On Psytrance - Complete Bundle Sleep - Complete Bundle Gods of EDM - Part 2 Uptown! Complete Bundle Dame Candela - Complete Bundle Boom! - Complete Bundle
  13. I have Pro Tools standard (now Studio) perpetual license and pay support & updates (I bought a renewal for multiple years when the prices weren't the insanity that they are today). If I were in your situation I'd probably ask nicely and fill out the form anyway to see if I get lucky, there's a chance they don't care much, and there is not much to lose anyway if they say no.
  14. Falcon AAX was included in Pro Tools for free for a limited time. When it was removed they had a crossgrade offer. It wasn't well advertised and I found out several months later (https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/FAQ/UVI-Falcon-FAQ). I filled out the form, and they sent me a code that discounted Falcon to $100. The form seems to be still active If you don't have Pro Tools but have a friend who does, and is not interested in Falcon, try to convince your friend to get you a code, or to let you use his/her ilok id to fill out the form and get the code.
  15. The ball dropped at Times Square, Happy New Ear everyone!
  16. It looks like they may have some mistake in their databases, resulting in a mixup of 85 and 285. When I look in my User Area I see But I haven't purchased an upgrade yet and when I click on the "Go to your plugins" link I only have PSP 85
  17. Look again? (although the old one is more expensive than the new one since it's not on sale) https://www.pspaudioware.com/products/psp-85
  18. Making a new account and re-selling your old one is probably a good choice. If you add it to your existing account the extra licenses will increase the number of allowed installs - E.g., now when managing my licenses, for most plugins I see [Activated Devices: 1 | Available: 5] (and previously it used to be [Activated Devices: 1 | Available: 2])
  19. We are blessed for all you do in this forum, Happy Birthday Larry! and many, many happy returns of the Day!
  20. Wishing Happy Holidays to y'all, and a prosperous 2023 full of interesting new plugin releases at amazing deal prices!
  21. Ends January 3rd, I'm tempted to wait and see if there are interesting January freebies
  22. If you purchase a Visual Studio Subscription (https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/subscriptions/#software-and-downloads?cat=visual-studio-enterprise-subscription-with-github-enterprise) you can get multiple license keys for development/test purpose, for Windows, Office, etc. (it's not exactly the Microsoft version of an "All Bundle" but it has some resemblances) The words in the license agreement don't allow for resale and don't allow for purposes other than developing/testing applications, but these dev/test keys work the same as a normal key. There are sites that ignore the written license agreement and make money from un-bundling and re-selling the keys. For anyone at risk of an audit (typically large- or medium-size companies, and smaller companies being acquired by a larger one) it can be a really bad idea getting these "dev/test keys" and using them for production purposes. For individual consumers the risk of an audit is lower (but not zero, and Microsoft has the capability for blocking ranges of keys, although I haven't heard it being applied to dev/test keys, only to stolen keys). Please note that I am not accusing stacksocial, maybe these are legitimate licenses, I'm just explaining how there is a "gray market" of sites that sell cheap license keys that work fine when you use them.
  23. I did get the PA All 2022 bundle for $224, recommended Getting a few of the "big bundles" definitely makes it easier keeping GAS under control (although I won't claim it can get fully cured) I'll keep you both in mind for future $75 vouchers that become available.
  24. Also at dontcrack, discounted if you do a custom bundle (buy multiple products in a single purchase, get 5~20% off each product) https://store.dontcrack.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=174&products_id=4261 http://store.dontcrack.com/specials.php
