  1. Hi Folks! Simple question I couldn't find on the web help, how do I click/drag-stretch an audio clip from a take? In Sonar 8.5 you could alt+grag a clip (if I recall correctly) and in Sonar X/Plat was with Crtl+Shift+Drag. I can't find how to do it in CBL!

    Here's a full album you might like.  The first song is a bit slow to start, but I think you'll find several of the things you were looking for in the original song here.  The guitarist is the main force behind the Mystery (probably my favorite prog band at the moment - they have a LOT of good stuff though the vocalists are a little different than Naoki).

    This is some really quality stuff!

    Since I would never eat a bagel, I'll just watch two YouBoob conspiracy channels instead! 😆

    This is STILL bugging me!  And every time I listen to snippet of something I then have to go back and reacquaint myself with the reference tune... Oh well! 🤷‍♂️

    At least, to  my taste's a great  tune, very  "re-listenable" :P

    Heh, Aja.  "THE" standard for setting up live FOH's!  😁

    As for the "fusion, jazz/rock side," I agree and, what's worse, I KNOW I have a song that sounds almost exactly the same, but haven't been able to recall who it is (or stumble on it)... YET!


    Search, deep inside of you mi child (?) hahaha

    *Arrghh!*  This is killing me!  There's a song that is soooo much like the one in the OP, but it's just eluding me for now...  😕

    Some good songs, on the glam side, but I think the guitars can trick us into that, to me, the arrangement and overall feel, it`s more on the fusion, jazz/rock side. I can think of something like Steely Dan's Aja... maybe?....

  6. Let me tell you a brief story as prologue! Back in 99´ I was playing "Macross: Digital Mission VFX-2" for PS1 (a glorified Afterburner/Ace Combat like set in the world of Macross - the first Generation of Robotech for those who´re not familiar with Macross- ), and, I used to have this habbit of throwing PC Games CDs and PSX CDs on my CD player, cos' some of them, actually had songs! (that was a huge discovery for me back in 95' with the Mechwarrios 2 CD!). So, I stepped across one of the most beatifull songs I've ever heard to this day! It took me years to actually find out some info on it (heck! even the actual name of it! cause the game was in Japannese and had no info of the OST).  I'd finally found out it's called Shoout and Shout, singed by a Japanesse/American Soul and R&B  singer, Naoki Takao (he also sang a cover of "Carry on Wayward Son" from Kansas for the "Supernatural" Anime spinoff), and features a renowed Japannese drumer, Akira Jimbo. That´s all the info I have to this day. 

    So, moving on from this prologue, the song´s, to me, a beatifully composed, piano/guitar driven, fusion/rock, prog rock like song, but, I´ve never came across something similar. I ask all of you willing to take the time listen to it, if you can suggest me similar bands or songs that you can relate to it (heck, even if you don´t want to spend the 5 minutes it lasts, check just the intro, first verse and chorus -up to 1.53"- and the break from 3.00" to 3.35"), to have and idea of what we´re talking about here!

    To all of you, from Macross VFX2, Shoot and Shout!

    I have a 7 year old computer (some stats below) with a Kingston sv200s3256g SSD as my start-up drive. It is still working, but takes some time (1-3 min after logged in) to function properly, after random freezes.  Maybe it is not the drive's fault but it hasn't been like that until recently. If I would buy a new SSD I think I would pick up a Samsung 860 EVO if it fits in the box. If I get a new computer I would definitely get the 970 EVO. (m.2).

    7 years feels like a fair enoguh amount time for a drive to start showing it's age. Jeez, even a standar HD would start showing it's age by this amount of time

  8. I remeber tons of articles from a couple of years ago from several renowed Tech Sites on the topic of SSDs bland endurace, short lifespan and high fail rate. Having a 5 years old PC, a not having lots of money to spend, I can clearly see that my weakest components right now are my old HHDDs.

    So, how are SSDs doing right now? From those early adopters, going back to 2012/15ish, are your drives alive? Do they retain its performance? And the new adopters of newest technologies? Are you happy with your SSDs? Do you trust them enough?

    Typically abandonware is software that the owner has released without license and support. That is different from just stopping, sale development  and support, because it includes the express or effective permission to anyone to use the software without paying for it. Consider the old car in the barn. You may not be driving it or maintaining it, and you may not have any intention of selling it to anyone, but it still belongs to you and you could still charge someone with auto theft it they took it. It is pretty rare for the owner of software rights to give them away to the world, although not so unusual for the owner to no longer care if they are stolen, and not pursue the thief. Much of the "abandonware" available for free on the net is basically in this latter category. Short of issuing a new license that, like some in the Creative Commons system allows anyone to use it freely, or making some explicit statement that the product is being transferred to the public domain, copyright stays with the product until it expires, and ownership of the copyright can almost always be assigned to the original owner his heirs of assigns. So cracked versions of SONAR are almost certainly still cracked, and their use distribution or modification by anyone not licensed is not legal. 

    I really thought that software fell to abandonware by not being selled anymore, nor patched or supported in any form

  10. Well, the great thing about maps is that you can have custom templates for inputs and outputs from different source or form feeds to specific outputs.

    In my case, I use mostly BFD for drums. BFD1 has different layouts and fewer drum pieces than BFD2. Not only that, through the years I've tried many input methods, for example, drums fron scratch through mouse&keyboard with arbitrary keys for i/o, then some were GM drums, and then V-Drums. All of them had different inputs and outpus, which, through maps I could easily switch and even have campatibily between all of them. I find them as a key feature really. Also, having the names of the piece kits, and arrange them in any form is really handy. Great feature

    We're in the Late 2010s.  Adobe and other companies have had tutorials online for years.  Cakewalk themselves did tons of videos on SONAR, for years.  They started on YouTube, 8 years ago, so the idea that there was some lack of video content about this DAW is a bit of a stretch - considering there is very little value in duplicating this type of content.

    You'll find similar with Pro Tools, Media Composer, Premiere Pro, Audition, Samplitude, and a host of  other software.  There has been an increase in video content for all of this software, over the years, as mediums like YouTube have increased in popularity.  The only thing that has been wanting, is the other stuff - which has increasingly disappeared.

    You're living in whatever world you choose to live in, where what you prefer is what is apparently preferable to everyone; and what everyone else should see.

    Again, I didn't say "Death to YouTube Tutorials."  I simply stated that written or PDF documentation and actual help files don't need to die to make room for them.

    Read the thread.  Keep things in their proper perspective... dude.

    (Sorry, I've meant to late 2000s, before de YT explosion) Before YT and streaming you rarely had any actual audio in audio articles, sites like SOS, TweakHeadz, Mix Magazine, etc, very sparingly had audio examples. But I have this feeling that the pro audio community well past the first half of the decade past the millennium still had a secrecy aura around them that, slowly, some sites, magazines, forums, and, lastly, streaming, knocked down (thankfully)

    And, I've also stated like you, that software learning from writen material can be easier thanks to indexes or precise things to look for. Is the audio learning part that I think gets much easier throughout videos or actual audio. Of course, the more material we have, in any form, the better for everyone
