    Stop! Stoooooop! Our wallets are already dead!๐Ÿค‘
  2. Best practice is to oil your fretboard with it. Then you get to pretend like you're not deliberately taking it and after, or whilst playing your bass you are only an eye rub, or nose pick away from not shooting the Deputy.
  3. Wait? I mean sure they added it back into the normal update plan. But I don't see anything about them delivering the severed head of their marketing director, complete with the sacrificial-ceremony-ready bodies of their first born children?!!๐Ÿ˜œ
  4. I agree. Their statement is far too vague on just what exactly would qualify the development of something as a now paid for extra. It seems like they might be setting themselves up a nice little slippery slope, where slowly but surely everything but the most basic device finds its way into the add-on category. Or perhaps they will start hobbling features of new free devices and if you want that extra knob/switch/feature (or two) that actually makes the device broadly useful? Break out that wallet! Again! And again... And again... Annnnnnnd again...๐Ÿฅถ
  5. So the attached video is a little dumb. Who would intentionally go that far above clipping? But I have to say he might have a point when he asks what else have they cut corners on? Considering Pro Tools touted that one of its improvements was 32 bit float and from the looks of this, they might be lying? I mean it would make more sense if the plugin was disabled or the sound just cut out, perhaps with the reasoning of protecting connected outboard gear. But to buzz into distortion seems to indicate that 32 bit float headroom is not really there.
  6. So nice to finally have the sound of a high gain slo-100 without nasty fuzz, or boxy sounding cabs! I can't stop playing!
  7. A puny 8.2" myself. I can do C to D comfortably and uncomfortably hit E. Probably for the best that I'm a singer and my throat can stretch waaaaaay further than my mitts. I could take about 4 octaves of those keys down my gullet before gaggin'.๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜œ
  8. I agree the marketing sort of pidgeonhole it for the lo-fi genre. I actually intend to use it to help sink instruments into the background. A lot of the time with the quality of samples and synths these days, you make a song with a bunch of tracks and they have so much brightness and oomph that you then have to spend a fair bit of time getting the sounds that are not supposed to be up front, sit back in the mix and not take away from the up front sounds. RC-20 makes that process easy. Sound is too pristine and prominent? Degrade it! Then you don't have to spend time working out how to tuck it under because it tucks itself under.
  9. I was expecting cessation of the aforementioned "the".๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. Most likely masturbation...๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. I held off buying anything else during this season of sales because I do not really need anything plugin-wise. But then I recently made the mistake of firing up Bitwig 8 Track to fool around with. I got it either cheap, or free with something a while back but had only opened it maybe once since installing and cannot even remember whether I did a single thing in it? Fast forward to a week or so ago and I found myself liking how easy it is to set up insane controlled chaos and randomness. It got me thinking that I might just use it for little electronic background stuff in other tracks. After learning it a bit more and continuously bumping up against the 8 track limitations, next thing I know I am on the full Studio version. *sigh* I was so close to making it out of these sales with my wallet still in tact.๐Ÿค‘
  12. With just a little more wetness to the effect and a lot more flammability to the gaseous components in the air, he will be beating bands requiring bassists off with a stick! And probably his hands too...
  13. Am I seriously the only one in this thread who thinks the OP would be far better off saving the money on stringed wood shortcuts and just finally putting the time and effort into learning to fart in key?
  14. Look at their hubris! Utterly assuming that they can inform us, like one can just go about randomly informing! This is all too informal, if you ask me for information on this info... ๐Ÿคจ
