  1. That's a primo look for the Control Bar!
  2. PS: Here's a link to a slightly different version which hews more closely to the original's color scheme for track name text. Only would note that white is more authentic to Apple's color scheming, however I prefer the colored text myself. https://www.dropbox.com/s/c6ci8s55ekpeusd/Apple Scruffs 1.01.sth?dl=0
  3. I'm pleased to present for your enjoyment, a new theme I call Apple Scruffs. I started with the legacy theme, Logical (many thanks to Erik aka Starship Krupa) and then I tried to fold in as many elements of that "other" DAW as I could muster. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2g987va1teqig8f/Apple Scruffs.sth?dl=0 Cheers!
  4. jesse, I intermittently get a failed calibration when I fire up the MCU. Like you say, the fader (always #7) will hang and the message screen identifies a failure. I have read that the ribbon connector inside can get hung up and moving the fader manually up and down can free it. I've also read that you shouldn't do that... 😄 I've read that a failed capacitor can be the cause but, in my case since the problem comes and goes, I don't think it's a capacitor. For a weird reason which makes no sense, sometimes it just works fine after the whole system (not just the MCU) gets rebooted. These MCU are getting on in years so I can't complain about a little finicky-ness. To be expected. All in all, they are an awesome product.

    BFD = CFA

    Or, make friends with a drummer and record real drums. It's easier in the long run.
  6. Where is the link to download the latest version? I see nothing.... just a forum announcement. Confusing.
  7. I had one of these little guys back in the day, traded it in for a JCM 800. If you like the MB sound, just bandpass the heck out of your signal, master volume your way to the moon and you're basically there.
  8. Sounds like a spot-on Mesa Boogie emulation then.
  9. To be totally cool, you need the SONAR overlay too.
  10. FWIW, I am using iConnectivity mio 1x1 USB-MIDI, DIN-MIDI Interface with my old grey version of the Mackie Master Control. Works fine. I was running it through the DIN conns on my Babyface Pro but wanted to reclaim those ports for other things. So I tried this and it worked just the same.
  11. I remember those wedge monitors, wouldn't do a gig without 'em!
  12. Hang in there Mr. T. With enough time, practice and perserverance I'm sure you can improve 20 to 40%.
  13. Sorry, was referring more or less to the OP's post. You have a Steinberg interface? It should be more than up to the task, I would think. Why would anybody struggle with an on-board Realtek sound card using janky drivers? Just get a decent interface with solid drivers and be done with it, is my point.
  14. I need to saw this piece of wood and, all I've got is a hammer. So... if I smash the wood enough times and bust it in half is that good enough? Same as using a saw, right? I just don't want to actually go out and find a saw. Just because, I don't.
  15. I've dug out a few old projects from time to time, which contained old plugins that I never carried over when I upgraded to a newer PC. Replaced the plugins "not found" with current plugins that do the same thing. In every case, the results are vastly superior. Remember digitalfishphone....? 😀
  16. I would also say, why not? But I'd think some larger sizes would bring you more satisfaction. 10" or 12"...think JBL L100.
  17. IK Sample Tank 4 Custom Shop (the free version of ST)... has a passable Hammond.
  18. Re. Virtual tambourine/shaker/maracas... How are you going to get your significant other included in the band if you go that route?
  19. In my experience, rogue plugins and/or poorly written audio interface drivers are the most likely crash culprits ... YMMV.
  20. It's not that painful to reauthorize with the License Manager if you've not used it for a while, honestly. I got a free expansion pack (Horsepower) when I migrated. I track actual acoustic drums nowadays but BFD3.4 works well on older projects which I tracked with e-drums. Any content that was created for BFD1 or 2 is EOL now. Except the 8 Bit Kit for some reason, not sure why. They shifted from wave files to BFDLAC which take up less space. No great loss. The current build is way easier to mix with. The paradigm shifted from a plethora of drum makes and models sampled, to a smaller assortment with better mixing options, and better presets, etc. Sorry it's giving you grief. I know I paid a lot more than $49 way back when so there is that...
