    You could've fixed that by booting with a Windows 10 installation disk and using the repair tools.

    I think for me that worked maybe once of twice.  It's almost useless.

    Has anyone figured out how to actually obatian the free Con Sordino Expansion Set?  I'm a registered user of Big Bang Orchestra.

    I've tried the pages below but could not find the actual download links.



    I also re-downloaded / re-installed Big Bang Orchestra and updated my Synchron Player to no avail.


    It's there in your account. You have to really big for it.

    Just get the one. Or two out of three. Maybe get them all to be done with. 

    So far I'm passing on these.  I thought I would go back and watch Harmor tutorials.   I was up to lesson 50 in Syntorial then I went to the hospital. I need to start over.

    A few years ago I decided to fast from buying Music products for one whole month, a Feb or March (so after the holiday rush).  I made it through the month, but then ended up spending far more the next month catching up with sales that were still in effect/etc.  I think it would be better for me to focus on really using the things I buy.   Or even better, using the things I've already bought.

    Who in their right mind does that?  Probably professionals.

  5. Every time I buy a loop library.  They sit in my downloads folder for weeks.  I audition a few of the sounds and then send them off to my 3 systems.  I've started to delete by 9 Volt Audio and Loop Loft folders.     The ones I buy usually have midi files so I delete the wav files except for the mix files so I know how they are suppose to sound.

    Hope you're doing better , our anciens knew that all was about balance , and falowing passion is everything but benefical , and we become slave of it .

    Balance helps "balance" , as well as some period of "retreat" as they used to do back then ... for my part this is in south of france without fam , technology and strict food feeding ... my best songs are written there , less time , more dens creativity with limited tools ....

    I will release my Album asap for you to feel the diffrence between what i do usually and what i did there ...

     I did a lot of stuff at the turn of the century with Digital Orchestra Pro, then Sonar, while using a Turtle Beach soundcard,

  7.  Not sure if this relevant but after 3 weeks in a hospital and not being able to listen to music other than on a phone which I didn't do because I didn't have a charger. The nurses would charge my phone. Amazing how apps to communicate suck the battery from a phone.   Then I went to a rehab center for 3 weeks and my mom have me a laptop to use so i could listen to music.    Oddly enough I started crying listening to music and it didn't matter the music.  That still happens after 6 months.

     There is a sadness though that now there are no live performances, no DJs at dance halls, no orchestras.  It must be difficult to practice without a purpose.  One time a group of guys decided to play for their neighborhood from their garage.  If you live in a warmer climate and have less restrictions that's a possibility.  Online collaborations are not the same.

     After 6 weeks I learned how fragile our mental health can be. I was a humbling experience.

    My worst purchases is when I buy some plugin that I already have but forgot to check my inventory.

    I seem to do that at least once a year.

    The (tell myself) upside is that it was an irresistible item at the time, twice.

     I've done that before.  It's not so bad if you have 3 machines.

    My worst purchase was most likely Fl Studio's All Plugins upgrade.  I got FL Studio in the charity auction (so that was good) and shortly later (I had barely installed FL Studio after the Halloween Auction) they started offering a big discount on the upgrade to the All Plugins version.  Like an idiot I didn't read the fine print that they had removed the VST versions from the All Plugins as part of this "sale". 

    Not the end of the world, but it sure has soured my impression of Image-Line.  Also drives home the fact I really don't need/won't use all these DAWs.  Now that Cakewalk has articulations I'm not even using Nuendo/Cubase very much anymore.

    Most of the FL plugins are never updated and some don't work in other DAWs. I have their everything bundle with VSTs.

    At least you have 2 DAWs where you never have to pay for upgrades.

    There are others in the series, right?  Are they (or possibly it, since it may be only one other game in the series) better?

    I am selective about installing these Epic freebies.  I have installed all that I purchased from them but only a couple of the free ones (including when Rocket League went free to play, though I already purchased that one on many platforms, many times over (including for other people).  I missed Subnautica so I was hoping they'd repeat that one as I'd install that one right away.

     My mistake.    It was Metro Exodus that I didn't like.  The game above is decent.  I didn't really care for the ending.
