Re: Hello from Texas

Hi Chucky! I spent a little bit of time living in both San Antonio and Austin at two different times in my life. I don't know how far "Southeast" you mean, but one weekend we took the kids to the beach at Corpus Christi, then camped overnight at Goose Island State Park, then visited a Texas history ...

Re: Hello!

My favorite piece on your soundcloud account is Duro, because I think I actually recognized one of the Spanish phrases. It's been years since I really practiced Spanish, but I used to work with a young man who was very soft spoken and we had a friend named Fernando Perez who kept encouraging him "¡S...

Re: Anyone else having Ardour 6 segfaults?

I didn't see any reference to a paid version on the site. I don't object to paying for it, or it being proprietary per se, but I don't like having to manage software licenses and manually update things. The Ardour devs make official releases built against specific library dependency versions, and a...

Re: Anyone else having Ardour 6 segfaults?

Most of the times that Ardour segfaults on me it is because some plugin crashes and takes down Ardour with it, and most of those times are plugins that I'm developing :oops:

Re: Leaving, To Go To High School

It almost made me cry too, the verse about high school being a big charade had me laughing so hard that I had to hold back the tears.

There's a newer version at http://www.bandshed.net/sounds/sfz/nbo_2.zip
You had me all excited to try a new NBO, but that's the one from years ago. I guess that's why you said "newer" instead of "new". :lol:

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

I read the other thread. Yes, that person was being unnecessarily condescending, but I think you handled it fine. I think it's funny that you used the word "amateurish". Let's be honest, you and most of us on this forum are amateurs. There's nothing wrong with that, you're writing up scores and doin...

My kids are going to love this! Random nonsense like this is their catnip. I'm almost scared to email it to them, because I might get in trouble with their mother! :)
Let me know where to send it, I'll take the fall.

Re: The Wind and the Lake (classical / symphonic poem)

I have to admit, the first composer that came to my mind was Bedřich Smetana, rather than Tchaikovsky or Grieg or anybody else mentioned on this thread. This was a pleasant listen, the different motifs make me think of scenes in a story, each with their own part to tell. I'll certainly come back for...

This is a true story. Only the names, places, dates, and actual facts have been changed to protect those involved.
I feel like you just described the entirety of the news media.

I also think you should be banned. For life. From the internet.
That might be a good thing for me, as long as I had a way to sneaker-net new releases of Dragonfly Reverb to somebody who could publish them to the internet.

Re: Mind Cavern

This is a sort of ode to metacognition that really speaks to me. As somebody who tends to overanalyze pretty much everything, I need regular reminders to get out of the Mind Cavern :lol:

Musically, I really like the piano part and the vocal harmony. Good stuff all around.
