  1. It was, also the first time he recorded with a virtual ensemble. Art's such a fine and experienced player that he took to it easily and enjoyed doing it. Thanks for listening bjornpdx. Jerry
  2. I mentioned my experience with the staff view because I know it so well and have produced 14 albums with it, not in order to make you defensive. I don't need or use the snap function in track view, so it's not an issue for me. Since Bandlab repaired the snap function in SV, it's far easier to use.
  3. I am not clear on why this new option is even necessary. If you DO want the notes in the staff view to snap to a given note value, turn on the Global Snap and choose the value. If you DO NOT want the staff view to follow the the Global Snap settings, turn off Global Snap. Another question I have is why would anyone not want the snap function to work properly in the staff view? I've been using the staff view successfully for some 25 years and when the snap function became dysfunctional it was a real pain. But now, since Bandlab has fixed it, I have no idea why someone would not just leave it alone and use the staff view with, or without, the global snap button turned on or off. I myself just leave it on and leave it set to either an eighth or a sixteenth note. If I need to enter triplets or 32nd notes I quickly change the snap value. It's quick, it works. What is the issue?

  4. Cakewalk is the best! I've been using it since Cakewalk for DOS (Yep, I'm getting old, it happens to us) and I'm really happy about what BandLab is doing for this incredibly powerful and ergonomically excellent DAW. Thanks BandLab for making Cakewalk even better! Jerry www.jerrygerber.com
  5. When I was a kid and taking private jazz/rock guitar lessons, "legit" always meant classical music or classically-trained musicians. A lot of unnecessary strive was probably created by making a division between "legit" and "illegit" (??) music. I once asked a blind student of mine if he was legally blind, and he answered jokingly, "No, I am illegally blind"! When Bob Dylan came out on stage with an electric guitar for the first time, his fans felt "betrayed", they thought he was selling-out folk music. It's both annoying and amusing how people take their traditions so seriously that anything that happens outside of it is somehow wrong, or illegitimate, or less. As a classically-trained composer who embraced MIDI and electronic music back in the 1980s, I've gotten some of the same bullshit from online critics and other not-so-creative small-minded people. It comes with the territory of being in the arts. I prefer to be joyful and do what I do and not judge what others are doing no matter how far or close it is to what I do. I find myself happier with this attitude. Thanks for posting your story Tom! Jerry
  6. Oops, I forgot that I already learned how to save the installation file that is in the download folder before it gets deleted. So I have the backup file. Thanks Noel! Jerry
  7. Thanks for the update! Is there a way to download the Cakewalk.exe file so I have a locally-saved backup? Sincerely, Jerry
  8. I just lowered the price to $2750 for the pair. I bought a pair of Adam S3h's and they're arriving next week. I hope i can sell the S3a's to help finance my equipment addiction! Jerry www.jerrygerber.com

  10. Well, if I stole your pun I must be a kleptomaniac who doesn't understand puns. I may be puntificating a bit, but really, do I deserve to be punished? 😉 Isn't punning obsessively enough punishment?
  11. The reason why kleptomaniacs don't understand puns is because: They always take things literally.
  12. A man is seated at a restaurant. He calls to the waitress, "I'd like to know about the menu please". The waitress comes over to the table and says "Sorry, but the men I please are none of your business!"
  13. Yeah, I paid over $5000 for them. Since I compose and orchestrate using headphones and I only use the speakers for mixing and mastering, they didn't get nearly as much use as they would have if I used them for writing and sequencing, which takes the majority of my production time. In other words, they've got years of life in them..
  14. These speakers are superb for mixing and mastering. They are high end and are in excellent condition--no dings, blemishes or scratches. I am the original owner and they've only been used on a clean, smoke-free studio environment. Will sell locally only, must pick up (San Francisco Bay Area) $2750 for the pair.

    1st movement, Symphony #11

    Hi Gary, Can you send me a link to your website or to music you have sung to? My daughter is getting married and I wrote a song for her and her fiance, but haven't been able to bring people into my studio because of the virus. I can't promise anything because I am looking for a particular kind of voice (male or female) but if I can find the right singer who also has the ability to record their vocal part in their own studio, maybe we can work something out. Best, Jerry

    1st movement, Symphony #11

    I improved the timing between the softsynth (Dune) and the orchestral samples. The movement now has more of the feel I was going for.. Some softsynths have very sharp attacks, much sharper than orchestral samples, even marcato or other fast attacks are capable of. My solution is to move the synth tracks forward in time (later) so I can achieve better sync with the attacks. This small adjustment can greatly improve the groove of the piece. In this case the synth track is moved 55 ticks late...
