  1. When I said freakin' tele, it's a statement of shock iow. Like, 'Holy crap he's playin' a freakin' tele! I can't believe it!' kinda thing. I couldn't believe it when I first saw what he was playing. I've always been able to play fastest when on my tele so it really doesn't surprise me but there is definitely a stigmatism about them and he's the only guy who plays the style he does that I've seen use one. πŸ‘ That and I thought Bapu might like it knowing his infatuation with primates and such. πŸ€ͺ
  2. Gasp! John 5 is fantastic. Notice what he plays? A freakin' Telecaster. I saw an interview with him one time. He grew up watching Hee Haw with his dad and thought Tele's were the only electric there was because that's all he saw on the show. He did a spoof on Hee Haw called Hell Haw. It's great! Lot's of dirty jokes so listen at own risk. No kids!
  3. As good as it can I would guess. πŸ€ͺ
  4. Well, now that I think about it, isn't there a free app for Android or iPad? I ain't in to all this techno mumbo jimbob. I just upgraded to a non wired mouse. πŸ‘
  5. It's human nature. They were all valid points about CbB, but what I was pointing out is, all but 1 were not show stoppers and could easily be worked with and around. But I sure do understand the desire to have it work more efficiently. πŸ‘
  6. Did you try using a controller instead like the Presonus Faderport? πŸ€ͺ
  7. The point where he was talking about the synth not responding to the envelope curve smoothly seems to be the only legit criticism he had imo. It almost sounded like there wasn't enough resolution or points on the envelope curve even though it looked like there were. I may be getting my DAWs mixed up but I seem to recall a setting for that. In regard to the rest. If milliseconds of your workflow time are that valuable to you, maybe taking hours creating, editing, and uploading a 9 minute video isn't quite the best usage of your time? πŸ€ͺ
  8. I shouldn't have said anything and I regret it now. It was late, I was tired, and it won't happen again. But yeah, a couple threads I've replied to have been deleted. I don't believe it was because of me but there was absolutely nothing bad that I saw by anyone. But I truly don't care about that kind of stuff anymore. After what I've been through the last couple years, and then C19 on top of it, nothing and I mean nothing bothers me anymore. Life's too short for the petty stuff and I just want everyone to be happy as they can be. Am I curious as to why a lot of the stuff I paid for and have been using for years suddenly vanished and/or stopped working ... you betchya pilgrim ... but it ain't worth the hassle and doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸŒžπŸ˜ΊπŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ‘
  9. By far, thee most incredible thing I have ever heard was a pair of lower end Magnepan's and a sub through a lower end McIntosh MA5300. Still pricey but not insane like their high end or PS Audio etc.. Some Best Buy's have a high end section. I A/B'd a room full of AV and Stereo head's to the MA5300 they had and nothing even came close. I never knew how important the distortion rating was on an amp until I heard one that didn't fudge that number. It was so clean and so pure compared to the other 24/25 AV and Stereo heads they had. Some were more expensive than the MA5300's $5K price tag. I'm happy with my 35+ year old Technics turntable I bought used, well, 35+ years ago, with a decent cartridge and my 70's Pioneer SX 550. My brother bought it new in 76 or 77 and gave it to me a couple of years ago. I had been using a now 20 + year old cheap JVC AV head but the 70's SX 550 is far better/cleaner sounding. Then I picked up a pair of very used/damaged but still working JBL L880 speakers off the for sale bulletin board where my wife works. Not a fan of JBL but they were cheap and it all sounds great to me and not worth the price difference between this setup and a Maggie/McIntosh imo.
  10. Thanks. Edit *Ficksed* It's ok. The cool kids are down here in the basement anyways.
  11. This screen came up while installing the last update to CbB and it hung there forever. Any idea what this is? I've never seen this before and everything I found online about it was pretty cryptic.
  12. I always felt the same way. I have a respectable turntable and some good JBL speakers. I just bought a new needle for it. Took forever to find online. But the biggest thing that changed the sound was a cleaner I made. I've gone down the rabbit hole of how to clean LP's for decades. The best thing I could find online were vacuum based ones. Being Mr. Frugal, I decided to make my own and try on some old LP's that I didn't care about ruining. Man did it work amazingly well. I bought a cheap $40 dollar wet/dry vac and used some scrap PVC I had laying around and some felt furniture pads I had laying around. I was completely astounded at the difference it made. Old records I had been getting at the thrift stores sounded like new. I was completely astounded. Wish I would have done it years ago. It even worked out to where the hose of wet/dry vac fit tightly inside the PVC and I didn't have to screw with making an adapter. I used Enzyme based cleaner and surfactant that photographers use. It seemed to work best when I put a layer of that on and sprayed distilled water on top. It somehow activated it. I was truly amazed at how well it worked. LP's I thought were ruined just need a deep cleaning.
  13. This is astonishing, and sad toward the end.
  14. I thought this was going to be another Stevie Nicks thread. Come to think of it, I don't ever recall hearing him sing. But I never paid close enough attention to them to know.
  15. Boy, could I fix that one with 1 'e'. 😁
  16. Ooh. She's live again. Doing The Lemon Song now. πŸ‘
  17. The only criticism I have about CbB and Assistant is it seems to have disabled my legitimate (not stolen or hacked) copy of X2 and it seems to have removed some older plugins I heavily relied on that came with X2. They completely vanished from my system during one of the updates and every time I try to open X2 nothing happens. I don't miss X2 but hopefully it's something I did inadvertently to remove the VST's, but I can't imagine what. I still have direct X plugins I use. I never delete anything. But as for download speed and startup speed I have zero problems. I too only recently got high speed internet out in the country. 30Mb Down/20 Mb Up. It's never taken me any more than a 2 or 3 minutes to update CbB.
  18. I can do Jazz Chords in Band In A Box. But only Jazz. No majors. (See my thread there about BiaB only generating 7ths) 😟
  19. And you owe me one keyboard and possibly a monitor after the projectile coffee incident just now. 😁
  20. The nonstick stuff is ok if you don't overheat them or accidentally scuff the surface. People ramp up the heat to get them warm enough to cook faster and burn the coating or chop and scrape with a metal spatula and scuff it up. That's bad. I got one of those single burner countertop induction plates. I haven't used my regular stove since and I've had it about 3 years. The pans heat to temp in about 10 seconds and you select the temp so you never get anywhere near the danger zone. But, for breakfast on occasion I have cornbread made in a cast iron skillet in the oven. Nothin' like it. Get the box mix, add real butter and replace the water with regular 7up (not diet). Cornbread, scrapple, eggs, percolated coffee. That's living. Scrapple is what's leftover after a hog is butchered. Ground up and pressed in to a grey block. Chunks of grizzle, hair. It's all in there. You slice it and fry in cast iron with oil and get it crispy and smother it with molasses. Can't get it here in MO. It's a PA/Northern NJ thing. πŸ½πŸ–πŸ‘ Here's a good video on how to season cast iron and make it nonstick.
  21. Same here. I try to make my mixes as close as possible to the end result as I can. It's not easy but when I did the -6/-18 thing they came out a lot better.
  22. And then there's me. I never did anything right. Just ask my wife.
