  1. Sorry to hear about your drummer friend having to move to an office job to earn a living. TBH though automation will likely leave many jobless. On the one hand these tools greatly simplify making cookie cutter music (that's likely to also end up with a lawsuit). On the other, if you want to make something unique, you can't always replace a real player with a tool like this.
  2. Let's just say it will help a hapless fool (like me) play well above his level as long as that fool can count to 4 and has some vague semblance of musical harmony.😅 It's similar to the Phrase Player in Ignite by AIR except it's not locked to any single DAW. Some call them MIDI arpeggiators but it's not like there a ton of these plugins around. Another plugin like this is Nora by Squareheads or, the even older midilooper by piz.
  3. Hey, at least IK finally lets you manually deactivate (some) licenses now... 😅
  4. TBH there are quite A LOT of people who aren't computer savvy. Add to that another issue: in my (admittedly limited and anecdotal experience) music PCs tend to NOT get upgraded for fairly long times. There is actually at least one catch: if you still need to use a certain older iLok driver, it no longer runs under recent Win 10 releases and will BSOD it. So maybe some of these people might be "once burned, twice shy" in terms of upgrading. It's exasperating but they might just be going by the "if it's not broken, don't fix it" principle and all that.
  5. If you scroll down a lot, to "Specifications" it says Hard Drive Capacity 128 GB Seems a bit iffy (and 128 GB is very little for a usable Windows laptop) so maybe ask a Walmart rep ? For 300 USD it's a good deal, but only if the specs aren't fake and it's upgradable. EDIT: Ouch, it also says RAM Memory 4 GB That's barely enough to run Windows 10 acceptably, definitely ask a rep and double check.
  6. Going against the grain here as I've just built a new PC in November 2020. Price to performance intel is the better deal right now because AMD, being in high demand, has had its street prices driven up. Intel is also launching its 11th generation of CPUs so you might find a good deal on a previous gen Z490 board and get good RAM speeds, even if you decide to buy a CPU that is not overclockable. On the GPU side, things are BAD, Ethereum mining has raised the street price of even old, second hand cards up to 2x their brand new MSRP. Maybe if you have a kind hearted friend who has a spare GPU or just upgraded and is willing to sell you the old one for a good price, it would be worth it.
  7. One of my big pet peeves is that when many subscriptions advertise their price, it's not actually the monthly price, but the yearly price divided by 12. Often you're not paying 19.99/mo but 239.88/yr, as a flat payment. Some subscriptions go even further and have you pay 24.99/mo if you want to be billed monthly with a yearly contract. The price is often even higher if you want to "pay as you go", usually 34.99/mo. While this is not the case with Reason+, it's still a pretty widespread practice,
  8. On the one hand, this is good stuff, great prices and integrated in Native Access. OTOH we're in 2021, who knows when I'll need the money. 🥴
  9. Since I've been working on a 4+ year old laptop for quite a while (i5-7200U) an upgrade and a return to a desktop PC was a welcome change. Pretty content I managed to build a new PC with a Ryzen 5 5600X (only €14 above MSRP) and 32 GB of RAM (only €16 above MSRP). I did manage to actually save €31 on the motherboard so it evened out in the end. Then again, all this was at the end of November, just before PC parts prices went up everywhere.
  10. Yep, looks like it's all gone.
  11. Don't worry, you pay that "additional 45% off" right back when upgrading to Studio One 5. 😀
  12. Now I feel a bit dumb having bought K11U -> K12CE during the summer of sounds sale 😂 I could have gotten a Komplete 12U / CE upgrade for even cheaper AND a K13U/CE for free...
  13. It would be ironic if Microsoft hardware hadn't historically had lots of compatibility problems. The PlaysForSure and Zune fiascos to name just two of them that are relevant to this forum. As a rule, by the time MS figures out its hardware it's either obsolete or on the 4th/5th gen (except for their mice & keyboards).
  14. Update 2004 bluescreens on me because of Intel HD video drivers, the official ones. One of the intel updates made a mess of the drivers, and now there's some BS somewhere deep in the registry (no idea where it is) and I can't cleanly uninstall them.
  15. There's a bug in the forum. I've also encountered it. Seems to happen when you login to the main bandlab site and then come back to the forum.
