    I like it, Bjorn. Hypnotic and mesmerizing. Nice mix, and the vocal components are well integrated and work really well for me. For whatever reason, small parts of it gave the same vibe as certain parts of the Kingdom of Heaven soundtrack -- the vocal work near the beginning in particular.

    Melodic Guitar Exploration in D Minor

    Really nice! Completely enjoyed that, and the mix was great.

    New Forum Monkey's song - All the way to everything

    Yeah, my first thought when I started listening to this was Beatles-esque all the way. Enjoyed this one a lot, guys. Great song, really nice vibe, clear mix. Lyrics are quite entertaining.

    "Secrets (of the songs and dance)"

    I like this one a lot, Bats. Good mix, great vocals, and I like the mix of instrumentation. Very tight and very polished.

    Sonivox Filmscore Companion

    I have EastWest's Stormdrum 2 and the percussion section of Albion ONE at my disposal, if I'm looking for that sort of trailer drum sound. Those would be my first choices, and they'd do everything you need. I also own IK Multimedia Cinematic Percussion, Action Strikes, 8Dio's Epic Taiko and Epic Dhol libraries, and Drums of the Deep by Auddict. Any or all of those would do the job pretty well, also. I probably have more libraries like that, but I can't recall off the top of my head which ones. I hear good things about Strezov's Thunder X3M. I have the freebie version they gave away last year, and its got some nice stuff in it. There is also Drums of War 1 & 2 by Cinesamples. There is a ton of other libraries out there, too. Cinematic percussion of that sort has been in vogue for a while, I think.

    Sonivox Filmscore Companion

    For me, it happens within a few minutes of opening up the GUI and playing. Doesn't seem to be tied to any specific action beyond simply playing. BB crashes 100% of the time without fail, within a minute or two of launch. I have literally never had it open longer than, say, 3 mins. It's a common problem, happens on both Macs and PC, and the "Learn" button workaround is effective for some but not all. Another dude on the Sonivox forums came up with the idea of copying the Midi Learn file to the desktop on his Mac, and it seemed to stop the problem for him. Not sure why that would matter, but it apparently works for some Mac users. The company acknowledged that there was an issue on their support forum, and said it would be referred to their dev team. That was three years ago. Nothing since then.

    Sonivox Filmscore Companion

    I'd be a bit wary of this particular package - the Orchestral Companion libraries have some nicely recorded samples but are quite dated in terms of interface and playability; and the Big Bang Cinematic Percussion has an issue with it's GUI that causes it to regularly crash for most folks. The GUI bug was acknowledged by Sonivox over three years ago, but was never fixed. Which is a shame -- there are some nice samples in the Big Bang Percussion. There is a workaround (enable Midi Learn Button), but it has never worked for me...
  8. I have a spare PC that I built as a dedicated NAS server (using NAS4Free), and dropped a couple of 4 TB drives in it. I store all my archives on there. I also have a 4TB USB3 backup drive from Seagate that I put extra copies of my really essential stuff -- archives that I need to pay to access (from IK Multimedia, for example), and project backups, etc.

    Jam Points Expire?

    I did. Same deal -- mine expire July 1st, also. I think someone last week mentioned on one of the Tape Machine threads that their Jam Points had expired. It was the first I'd heard of it.
  10. Hi folks, I've been trying to upload a track to BandLab from within Cakewalk, but the track isn't appearing in my Library online. The mixdown and upload process appears to work, but the track itself never appears. Anyone else experiencing this? Thanks, Rob

    Behold the awesome power of sports...

    I don't recall that they did. Mercifully, no one suggested "Walk the Dinosaur" either. Instead, we had "Plant Guy":
  15. I always had issues with Windows 7, so when the free upgrade to 10 came around a couple years ago, I jumped at it and never regretted it. I find Windows 10 to be a much better experience, and all my audio software runs better on it. That's just my anecdotal 2 cents, FWIW...
