  1. ...the only place I visit at these forums 😄 I've been working on a new album and always include a Christmas song...so anyways here's a rough mix of the new one- Christmas On the Wing Seasons greetings to all the good people here! Bill
  2. If you're going to make music with a computer you should - 1 Have some idea how music works 2 Have some idea how a computer works If you have these basic DAW skills you're well on your way! Bill
  3. Go to your File Explorer, then the view tab, put a checkmark in the File Extension box. Now you can see what kind of files they are Bill
  4. Still rough but a simple revision Maidin an Fhómhair 060521 Thanks for listening! Working on the album outro today Bill
  5. Here's a short little intro to the new album I'm working on. It'll stay a rough mix until all the material is ready to go Maidin an Fhómhair(rough mix) Enjoy, Bill
  6. I have two subscription plans- Adobe Photography Plan(Photoshop and Lightroom for about 10.00 a month) and East West Composer Cloud Pro at 29.99 a month. One of these days I'll pick up the EW libraries I use the most(I do own EWQL Pianos, EW Symphonic Orchestra Platinum Plus, and EW Symphonic Choirs with the VOTA addon) and then drop the subscription...waiting on Opus to drop! I use software that does the year of free updates and then you need to pay a fee for another year of updates and upgrades...I get to choose when and how I spend based on my needs...if iZotope goes that way I can live with it, I just picked up MPS 4 and could probably use it for years without issue. Bill
  7. I'm still running an iLok1 along with the e-Licenser...I've never had any trouble at all. I've had trouble with machine activations and various server problems but nothing with the dongles. Sure they can break if you treat your stuff like a 2 year old Bill
  8. Good, I'm not the only one to get a used code I'm waiting to hear back now... On the brighter side I picked up IK Total Studio Max 2 finally...about 3 days before the new version dropped! Doh!! Bill
  9. I never understood the dongle hate. It's nice to just plug in to one of your machines and have the software just work...and if your machine dies and you build a new one just install and go! No internet checks, no license refreshing, no annoying popups while recording, etc. Simple serial is my favorite form of authorization but after that I'll take a dongle any day over activation, deactivation, reactivation... I'm 100% Cubase Pro now...actually running v11 in Windows 7 Ultimate. I have Samplitude Pro X Suite 3 but as powerful as it is I find it awkward to use. Cubase isn't that hard to use after years of Sonar and Cakewalk usage Bill
  10. I have a blu-ray burner for backups...you only lose if you don't plan ahead Bill
  11. I'm running 11 in Windows 7 so I'm a rebel anyways Bill
  12. Actually you want to buy the .5 update and hold for the .0 releases...the .5 updates are cheaper Your best bet if you pick this up is to activate and use, when 11.5 comes out buy but don't activate till 12 comes out Bill
  13. I know they put updates on sale at times but you may have to buy the next two updates to get in "cycle" Always buy the .5 update(cheaper) and hold off activating until the next major .0 release. Steinberg gives you a license for the newest version when you activate. Bill
  14. It's been a while so I thought I would share something from the next album I'm working on. This is a quick and dirty mix...I'll do the real thing when all the material is ready...so anyways here it is A  Murder of Crows(Demo) Enjoy, Bill
