  1. This is an OLD recording I did, but just dug it out of the archive for different reasons and found that it was not on my website. So I put it there today with a Blog to describe the equipment and purpose of the recording. Short version: this was in 2008 using Sonar 7, an SW1000XG, and the Yamaha DSP Factory. Hope you enjoy: https://www.blades.technology/music/songs/from-here-to-there
  2. I did a new Blog post and YouTube video about Delay and some of the fun that can be had with this simple and classic effect. This should apply to ANY DAW. Hope you will take a look and enjoy! https://www.blades.technology/music/daws-sonar-and-studio-one/fun-with-delay-in-studio-one-or-any-other-daw
  3. Based on a comment on a YouTube video I posted last week, I created a new one along with an associated Blog Post. This is about data backups, the importance of creating them, and a few ideas about how you might do so with some simple tools and online data storage. If you think this might be useful to you and your data, please take a look: https://www.blades.technology/music/daws-sonar-and-studio-one/data-backups-save-your-music-from-yourself
  4. @Vernon Barnes I am coming in with pro already, so yeah, definitely less value than if I were new to the product, and I am not really interested in notion, but between the sample libraries, the additional stuff like the editor for the rompler, the additional modules for the fat channel, maybe but probably not the looks for me (though for free I will play around with them), and the collaboration, which I hope to be able to use if I can find some folks interested in some drums or maybe vocals or someone who might be able co tribute a guitar solo out of my skills or maybe even something like a sax solo for a few different covers I would like to do but won't bother without a decent sax. I am also interested to see what they do to grow the subscription. It was one thing that actually got me to buy into the sonat lifetime subscription (yeah, we saw how that worked out): the continual updates that subscribers got during the year...maybe some exclusive feature updates or sample packs or whatever will come along. THAT is something that could make this work over time. Hopefully they are paying attention and aren't going to assume that the existing library of stuff will suffice for ongoing payments. I think they would see subscribers turn back into upgraders at the next cycle.
  5. Still on studio one 4 here but strongly considering Sphere rather than the upgrade to so5 due to the low cost of entry and the about $600 worth of stuff I know I would actually want (but wouldn't buy).
  6. Good evening! I just posted a new blog and video walkthrough of my newly designed Studio Room. I previously posted a walkthrough in this thread and my new room has taken on a completely new look and feel. I hope you will take a look! https://www.blades.technology/music/daws-sonar-and-studio-one/new-studio-room-for-2020
  7. Studio one 5 just released and now has notation built in, for what it's worth. Pretty sure they also finally added polyphonic pressure as well, though they aren't really making it much of a big deal for as long and as many requested it...personally, k don't need it, but for many with cymbal chokes on Roland gear, it was a bit miss to not be there. I am sure there are many other use cases.
  8. Been using studio one here since Gibson dumped cw in 2017. I did my last song in cbb though, just to see how the updates have come along. .I can honestly say that I could work in either pretty comfortably, have complaints and likes about each, but still lean to the studio one side for a number of reasons. Do NOT expect the same forum comraderie over at presonus though. It is not the same. Even when I have recorded something in studio one, I get feedback here but I don't even get feedback over there when I have used their tool. It is one reason I have stuck around here along with just keeping up with cbb as a daw. You still should get on their forum though, as it is still a good spot, just not as good as this one! Let me know if you need any pointers and I will help if I can.
  9. I had an echo 3g for a long time and we'll into windows 10 builds.. I don't recall when I decommissioned it...I think about this time in 2018. Mine worked well.enough but the phantom power was shot on both inputs and I had moved over to studio.one by then and decided to spring for a presonus studio 1824. It is better, even though it is usb but it is. It as night and day as you would think, being at least ten years newer. Still, I think it was a good move. I still have the 3g if anyone needs an extra one! I will sell it for a good price.
  10. Hey bapu. Thanks for the feedback. Drums are a little dry to me too, but that is the flavor of the song to a degree. I actually added a bit of verb to the snare and Tom's in addition to what was in the "room mics" and made them a bit more likely than the original recording. The name of the kit I built on the Mimic is "raw" for a reason 😁. Thanks for the listen!
  11. Thanks for listening, @freddy j and for the compliments.
  12. Thanks Douglas. I have a lot of reasons why I went with Studio One at the time and I wanted to come back to Cakewalk to see how it felt now that I've been away from it for a while. I was a VERY involved supporter of Sonar over the years and participant in the forum here (and before especially). In fact, the community is one of the things that is worth sticking around for - the Presonus forums are nowhere near as community focused. I don't want this post to turn into my Cakewalk vs. Studio One thing! So - thanks for listening and for your comment on the mix. I appreciate you taking the time. This is the original, by the way:
  13. Hello all, So, if you have followed me at all, you will know that I have been around here a long time but that I have been recording my songs in Studio One since the "Gibson Event". You also know that I've said I'd record my next song back over in Cakewalk. And I have. This time it is a cover of a song by a band called Believable Picnic. I hope you will venture over to my blog where I've outlined how I recorded it, what was used, etc. I look forward to your comments, if any. https://www.blades.technology/music/songs/spaceman
  14. Fwiw...I don't think that this thread is for my benefit. I was actually posing a question for those who already tried using 4k monitors and shared my experience. I put it in the coffee house to hopefully have some conversation and inform and demonstrate something useful to me. Let's keep it civil, eh?
