Re: Free Plug ins

The Ampeg SVT-VR classic is great. I use it all the time on both real and midi bass.

Thanks!

Re: Community Check-In and Feedback

I've been thinking a bit lately that having so many places for community like Slack and Discord dilute these message boards. Are we sure we want to move away from this, or am I just being old fashioned?

Re: USB transport and/or mixer controller

Some of my googling pointed to being able to map anything in Cubase to midi, so you could also buy a midi foot pedal or use a keyboard to trigger different functions. I expect this depends on how big of a problem this is and how much energy/money you are willing to spend to solve it. I was going to ...

Re: USB transport and/or mixer controller

It looks like Cubase does still have an iOS app: https://www.steinberg.net/cubase-ic-pro/ I know you don't have an iPhone, but maybe you've got an iPad lying around?

Re: USB transport and/or mixer controller

I vaguely remember being jealous of one that @JB had that was wireless, so you could take those controls away from your computer while you were recording. I want to say it was called Tranzport or something clever like that.

Re: USB transport and/or mixer controller

I kind of forget why I stopped using it, but either it had issues or it just got in the way. Maybe I ran out of USB ports? I still have it, but I haven't added it to my current set up. I'd probably be just as happy if I could map those functions to my keyboard. Hell, maybe those functions already ar...

Re: USB transport and/or mixer controller

I used a Presonus Faderport for a while and really enjoyed the external transport controls. I couldn't get into the fader or any of the fancier features.

Re: And if I lie then may God (Strike Me Down prefight)

I had trouble coming up with a topic for lyrics, and I had trouble with the music. Then I had trouble singing. Not my best work, but the best I could do this week. I also thought this was a tough one lyrically. I even read through the lyric thread for inspiration. I think one of the better ways to ...

Re: Don't hit me with a guitar (Brace Yourself reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene: The guitar tones are sweet – nice variation in the playing/panning/placement. The chorus is simple but the harmony and call + answer in it goes a long way. I prefer the chorus over the verses. Love the guitar solo. Mixing is superb. Nice song. That is really nice to hear. I u...

I hope you get that tooth.

I've been reading more, finding solace and escape in fiction mostly. I would also like to be more active in the new year. I also want to learn something. Maybe take some guitar lessons or something.

Re: Songfighter Videos on YouTube

I had a lyric video made for Winter Wonderland by Berkeley Holiday Band, which was basically a Tiny Robots/Berkeley Social Scene project we did for fun 10 years ago. Feel free to add it to your holiday playlists or whatever.
