  1. Assuming "pulled strings" relates to the technique referred to as a 'pull-off', the first couple of paragraphs here answer your questions: https://www.liveabout.com/pull-off-guitar-1712847
  2. Bundle for Ukraine 998 items Minimum $10 donation Over 700 creators have joined in support to donate their work. All proceeds from this bundle will be split between the following charities: International Medical Corps provides medical assistance in the region. They have very low fundraising overhead (1% of income), with 89% of donations going to medical aid and 10% to administration. Voices of Children, a Ukrainian organization that helps children cope with the horrors of war, PTSD, readjusting to school, and getting back to being kids. They have also been doing a lot of grassroots impromptu work during the war, such as helping set up shelters. Our hope is that this war will be over soon, and they can begin the work of healing these kids' hearts.
  3. To quote: “You may remember the story of how the devil and a friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil, “What did that man pick up?” “He picked up a piece of Truth,” said the devil. “That is a very bad business for you, then,” said his friend. “Oh, not at all,” the devil replied, “I am going to let him organize it." I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief. A belief is purely an individual matter, and you cannot and must not organize it. If you do, it becomes dead, crystallized; it becomes a creed, a sect, a religion, to be imposed on others. This is what everyone throughout the world is attempting to do. Truth is narrowed down and made a plaything for those who are weak, for those who are only momentarily discontented. Truth cannot be brought down, rather the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountain-top to the valley. If you would attain to the mountain-top you must pass through the valley, climb the steeps, unafraid of the dangerous precipices. — Jiddu Krishnamurti
  4. I'm wondering if anyone would be able to tell me what the Acustica Audio loyalty discount tier amounts are (e.g., 20% for EUR 200 - EUR 500). I've had a good look around for this info, but to no avail. Thanks in advance for any time and attention if given . Kind regards, Cat

  6. When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind. ✌️
  7. An overlooked library indeed. But I lament while sipping red rum, I've already overspent this year so far.
  8. Reads this ↑ *Streisand starts playing in head* "Memories light the corners of my mind . . ." Suddenly I don't feel so young 🙁 Note to self: Dear mind, No Streisand in the morning, plea... *interrupted by more Streisand* "Can it be that it was all so simple then Or has time rewritten every line If we had the chance to do it all again Tell me, would we? Could we?" Hm 😐
  9. Thanks S.L.I.P.! While a wait of many days like this isn't what one might consider ideal, your reply is reassuring. As is this reply. Thanks paulo! A short moment later . . . I just checked my inbox and was delighted to find a response from iZotope Customer Care apologising for the delay and letting me know that an MPS 4 upgrade had now been deposited into my account. Ah, the wonders of synchronicity!
  10. Hi all. I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post about this kind of thing. I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with iZotope support of late, and what kind of time frame the response was received in, if at all? I ask this as I contacted iZotope Customer Care about a bundle upgrade twelve days ago (I didnt get the advertised free upgrade to MPS 4 after buying and registering MPS 3 a week earlier) and haven't received a response beyond the standard initial automated "your request has been received" type response received shortly after submitting my request. __________ The first part of that initial automated response: Thanks for contacting iZotope Customer Care. Your request has been received and is being reviewed by our support staff. We will respond to your ticket in the order in which it was received. Please note, due to increased volume requests may take longer than usual to receive a response. We are working as quickly as possible to reach out in regards to your issue. __________ While it's reasonable to assume that this is a pretty busy time for iZotope, is twelve days without a word too long? Thanks in advance for any time and attention given.
  11. Inexplicably, I wasn't familiar with Acustica Audio before this year. It's a mystery to me now how I'd managed to overlook them for so long! Suffice it to say, it was after reading your post about getting Nebula the last time it was on sale that I became curious and set off down the rabbit hole. I bought Nebula a few days later and happily have been slowly adding to my AA collection with Acqua offerings ever since. But ever the procrastinator, I've still yet to go the third party route for Nebula options.

  13. I don't have this product myself. But what I have heard of it does sound really quite nice for something in this price range. If you'd like a good example of how it sounds in action I would recommend checking out Simeon Amburgey's 'First Look' video published on YouTube on June 13 of this year. Love your work, Simeon! I decided not to link to the video here myself, just in case Simeon would like to do so with a suitable lead in description himself. But otherwise, it's easy enough to find with a simple search.
  14. While I have an abundance of samples, I have comparitively only very few vocal samples. I can see that this set would have quite limited use. But maybe it could be useful as fairly cheaply priced, half decent fodder for experimentation with vocoder, morph, glitch, verb (and so on) sound designy type tools, in spite of that of it which sounds a little on the verbally incoherent side. Is this silly thinking? I honestly don't really know. I've missed a lot of sleep in recent days.
  15. I can access it, but then it redirects to TVC-mall within a few seconds of JRR Shop loading. TVC Mall is in Shenzen, China. Slightly unrelated, but perhaps still worthy of note in my books: On July 29 I googled "jrrshop" and clicked the top result which took me to japan.jrrshop.com which was odd. Directly after this I visited Plugin Boutique and while there was surprised to find VAT was being added. I've never had VAT added before, ever. It seems this was due to location-related site settings having been changed in my browser, unbeknownst to me up until that moment. Odd, to say the least. I then changed site settings for PB in my browser, after which things returned to normal,. i.e., no VAT being added to prices. (Incidentally, japan.jrrshop.com is presently also redirecting to TVC Mall.) A couple of days ago my bad JRR Shop checkout experience happened (I posted about this earlier in this thread). And then when I happened to visit Plugin Boutique directly after that I found VAT was being added again. Location-related site settings for PB had changed again, unbeknownst to me. Odd, and a little concerning by now. (Incidentally, when I had the pricing issue at PB in July it also ocurred when I then went on to sign into PB on a different device altogether. I didn't try on a different device when it happened the second time recently.) Since the aforementioned bad JRR Shop checkout experience happened (during which I was attempting to pay with Paypal) I've received an email appearing to be from PayPal, stating that my PayPal account has been restricted due to bad activity. The email contains a link supposedly to login to Paypal. All signs point to this email being scam related, and I have disregarded it as such. The question now beckons, is my bad JRR Shop checkout experience involving Paypal in any way related to me receiving a scam email phishing for my PayPal login credentials soon afterward? The common factor in all of the above has been JRR Shop. Coincidence, or otherwise? I hope I'm quite wrong. But personally, after seeing this latest issue with the redirection to TVC Mall, and in light of the above mentioned experiences, I'm inclined to deem visiting JRR Shop a potential risk of some kind at this time, and to be avoided for caution sake.
