Re: Is it possible to reclaim intellectual property that has been "given away?"

I'm in Canada... and the paper just said: "You, ____________ may share this music with the performers listed as who performs the songs and they may credit the music as their own writing." Then I signed it. The recipient was in the US. Walk away. You have two jurisdictions to settle before...

Re: Art (or other budget) Patch bay quality

I have two NYS-SPP1's both branded Neutrik (Rean appears to be a re-branding??) and a dbx 48 pt TRS patchbay, as well as 2 ART XLR patchbays and have had no issues at all with any of it. One of the Neutrik's I bought used and had to clean but no trouble after that. This configuration's been in place...

Re: I sold ALMOST ALL of my music gear and it feels GREAT!

Over the years I have gone through ungodly amounts of gear and used to purge every three to five years. People used to love it when I went through a clean out phase, deals galore. Gear represents alot to me: tool, fantasy, envy, disappointment, nemesis, obstacle, challenge, failure and success. I ca...

Re: The trend towards simplicity?

Easy times make soft people, hence the utterly pathetic West. As times are going to get very tough here shortly, I have high hopes that the arts in general will become stronger. God knows we children of Capitalism deserve everything coming to us. Maybe treating charts as a valuable thing will go the...

Re: What is the most professional usb audio interface out there?

I dunno. I'm sympathetic to the appeal to "professional" as a vague limiter for guidance. It is, after all, endemic to the advertising of every single product out there. No one's selling "The buskers console!" or the "late night beer breath wish I hadn't smoked so much beste...

Re: Windows Non-Music Question (Microsoft 365)

Probably not going to help, but...I have noticed that Windows itself does not always do a good install. In fact, just this last week I had to reinstall windows three times to get it to run with the proper permissions set on both the C:\ drive and registry items themselves. I honestly do not understa...

Re: The billionaires’ club

I never understood why people expect to get paid for playing music. Unless of course you're an actual genius or prodigy, the rest of us simply aren't worth much money. I used to chase money but realized it's a lot like collecting dog poo. All you have to do is decide how dirt you want to get when pi...
