  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. I was expecting cessation of the aforementioned "the".๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. Most likely masturbation...๐Ÿ˜‰
  6. 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‘
  7. 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...
  8. 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?
  9. 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

  11. People who guessed 16, you know the rules! Pants around your ankles and one lap around the entire world! Go!
  12. Careful when handling it! The Crocodile Hunter was killed after sticking his finger in the cloaca of a stingray, so don't get experimental with it!
  13. Personally I think the drum options you listed are for different purposes. SD3 and BFD3 obviously have presets but also are aimed at giving the user the ability to take the raw sounds and craft their own sound from scratch. AD2 is more aimed as having a ready-to-go premixed sound to insert directly into a mix, sort of like you outsourced to a session drummer and engineer for the drum parts. Now as for which one you wind up using won't really make two s***s of a difference to the end listener. Hell you could even go against all conventional wisdom for the style of music you play and stick static electronic drum samples of a tonality that isn't normally associated with your genre and as long as the mix slaps, people will not care, not one iota. They are after all just percussive noises, intended to thump, thwack, doong or whoosh and then get out of the way of rest of the track. Whether you use a top-tier acoustic drum sampler, or record yourself hitting objects around your home, they can all be shaped to achieve a similar thing in the end. However given what you have said in regards to raw sounds, my vote would be for BFD3. The sound of the kit samples with all fx off, is the most raw sounding. SD3 is pretty raw too when you take everything off, but it makes me feel like what I am hearing has been just a tad pre-processed/leveled, etc. In regards to the significant price and storage size differences of both products my vote would also be for BFD3. I know that all the options of SD3 might be enticing, but like all instruments you will wind up with a small amount of "go to's" and the rest will just occupy drive space. They both sound interchangeably as good when mixed, so really it may be a question of how much stuff do you want collecting virtual dust?
  14. Unfortunately in these times, such a decision would surely see them labeled as transferbic...
