  1. Back down to $49 - not sure for how long. A nice thing with this is can map the drum hits to whatever notes we want and use that to trigger other plugins/hardware for drums and melodic.
  2. Bear in mind that in the UK (and some other countries I believe), beat magazine english is free with a library card (which you should be able to get for free online in minutes from your local library's web page) and libbyapp.com. That gives me access to back issues to June 2020. Also gives access to future music, sound on sound and computer music too (along with 1200 other magazine titles across all category types).
  3. not really an upgrade as such, but it is still actively getting updates. - eg this was from just a couple of days ago
  4. Synlenth1 has 25% off its €139 EUR ex VAT price for BF from 24th to 29th November with code BLFR2022 - https://www.lennardigital.com/store/
  5. same story for me. I'd spent silly money on an aresline xten to try and it did nothing for long hours except aggravate my back, so I bought an aeron miller in 2012 in size C (large) which gave me the extra height I needed for my feet to rest comfortably on the ground. 10 years in and my back has been much better and this thing still looks (and feels) like new despite 8+ hours a day for 10 years. rock solid investment all ways around for me.
  6. yeah, same registered address - looks almost like grandmother is director of both, time+space is shared with son and zero-g is shared with grandson. Whilst limited companies don't have direct responsibility to each other, a personal guarantee can still have a knock-on effect.
  7. very different thing when you make something once and sell it over and over vs resellers that have to buy every unit they sell and compete with others selling the exact same thing.
  8. the "listen to samples" link in the original email:
  9. This has now hit - shows in my wave alchemy account as "Kontakt - Wav_Format" - 2.8gb of drums clean/tape1/tape2 - 44.1kHz/24bit.
  10. @Jim: Why do you feel empowered to reframe the definition of professional so favorably narrow here given your original post of "Those who think most professionals are using Mac..." was in response to a clearly more general definition of professional? You've taken it from the original "professionals" to "top tier professionals" and now to "high level professional composers for TV/Film". You are railroading this discussion to suit your own agenda.
  11. How about this: pro tools expert did a poll with 4,000 responders last year. out of those that responded, 70% (2,800) were using mac and 30% (1,200) windows. Given macs are traditionally more expensive than windows computers like-for-like and a lot of hobbyists have windows computers for other reasons, especially gaming, isn't it a reasonable expectation that a mac user will be more likely than a windows user to be using it professionally? https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/production-expert-1/not-all-creatives-use-macs It's far from perfect - but at least it's data of a reasonable size and spread.
  12. care to explain? Jim said "Those who think most professionals are using Mac:" and then provided a few bits of anecdotal evidence. You treated that like it was an unassailable truth that had come down from on high. Which parts of this are you struggling with - that anecdotal evidence isn't proof, or that "most" is not the same as "many"?
  13. btw, I wasn't saying I know that macs have the "most" professionals using them over PCs - just that anecdotal evidence isn't proof as it's statistically insignificant weighed again the whole. I like mac, it works great for me - but I won't lose any sleep if PCs are "better" or more professionals use them. It'd be interesting to see the results of a well-constructed survey showing which system professionals are using - can anybody point to one?
  14. How about just bringing a touch of objective common sense to it? A smaller percentage of a large number is still a significant number in absolute terms - making it easy to cite individual examples without proving anything one way or the other. I'd also venture that a man that builds and ships PCs is likely to have his experience skewed towards the group of professionals that are using PCs.
  15. I think we're roughly on the same page - I'd rephrase what you wrote as "if/when you need to upgrade to the version of macos that kills off rosetta, all your legacy plugins become toast".
