    Calibration software for monitor speakers and headphones

    I was looking at When used, will this actually flatten out response curves of monitors? This may not turn your NS-5s / NS-8s HS-5s / HS-8s into NS-10s, but will it at least give them comparable flat responses? Are any of you using this or something...

    I just wanna wash my car, man.

    Last 5 years I've been handwashing my car. Early on, I was able to do it outside my apartment but having moved a few years ago, I've had to move on to a local self-wash place. Well, because the local bird population (Egrets) has seen fit to use my blue car as a latrine for their Jackson Pollock...

    Shopping for refurbished Win 10 PC mini Tower

    I'm finding some good prices on refurbished Dell Small Form (mini) towers. Trouble is, many are refurbished by third parties and not all state whether they're Microsoft Authorized. Of course those would be the units with the lowest prices. Dell Computer does not indicate third party refurbishing...

    Two PCs one interface?

    I have been eyeing a second PC for personal/internet while I keep this one offline for music. Although a second interface isn't out of the question I would like to avoid the expense, but it seems having one interface connected to two PCs isn't worth the aggravation as this would not actually...

    Movies about the business

    I just watched That's The Way Of The World (1975) for the first time. Another excellent movie I had no idea existed in my youth. From the build-up, I thought it was going to be a sort of docu-drama about Earth, Wind and Fire making it in the business - but, nooOOOoooo... They were merely an...

    Hold on to that guitar, man!

    Do you hold your guitar this way? Hold your bass that way..? I can't play with my arm parallel to the strings like that - guitar, and especially bass.

    Plant Burgers

    Have any of you carnivores tried either or both plant-based burgers and/or sausage from the two big hitters here in the U.S. (Impossible Foods & Beyond Meat)? I had to make the switch to a vegetarian diet 16 years ago :eek: and was pleased to see these companies offering reasonable substitutes...

    Do you use drum grooves to help spark ideas while jamming on another instrument?

    Does anyone using a drum program (e.g., MT; SD; EZ) just start a groove and jam along on guitar (or whatever inst) hoping a good song will somehow pop out the other end? I get lost sometimes because I'll want to add more grooves and that just puts the brakes on the whole creative process. So I...

    Meet Now .. ?

    After yesterday's Win 10 Home update, I found a newly arrived "video" icon in my taskbar : Meet Now. It's a quick setup for Skype meetings. I don't Skype, so I hid the icon. What is Meet Now in Windows 10? How do you remove it?

    Life history for new glasses..?

    Cripes! I decided to switch stores for an eye exam and prescription update. I made an appointment online. They emailed a medical history for me to fill out. I attempted to comply. Checking all the boxes was easy. Adding all the names was easy. Writing my initials in a window expecting a...

    Somedays you get the hawk.. somedays the hawk...

The area surrounding my building is mostly single family homes, and there is a rather large population of...

    Is this normal?

    I've had this on the Cockos Forum for a couple days now and no one's responded yet. Is this normal behavior? In Reaper I have MT Power Drum Kit 2 on several tracks. While listening to playback, I hit pause so I can audition some MT grooves in order to drag one onto one of the tracks at the...

    Coffee Redux

    I have never been a big coffee freak or snob. Never had a home coffee maker at home. Never was the guy who had to have half a pot of coffee before going to work. I did, however, like one or two cups after getting to work, then one or two more between lunch and quits. I wasn't nailed to a desk...
