I am a mac user and love my mac…. but I am not sure apple will continue to be reign supreme. I also edit video and was appalled at the latest release of FinalCut. They announced to the world that they were abandoning the professional video market.
Also I was recently on a college campus and saw tons of college kids on their phones – out of at least 50 kids, only 3 or 4 were using iPhones.
At the Nashville meet-up I had nice conversation with Scott Wills and told him about something I was doing to check possible copyright issues with tracks. He thought other authors might be interested in it as well:
As a writer I am sure we all have fears of hearing something and inadvertently copying it. What I have started doing is taking my tracks and creating a video with 9 or 10 tracks with a black screen or logo and loading the video up onto youtube. This causes the tracks to be run through their watermarking and recognition program and it will alert you if you have anything with potential issues. It appears to work pretty well. I have only had one track get flagged for possible issues – it was the Star Spangled Banner (which is in the public domain). There were arrangements that were copyrighted but since the song shared the same melody it was flagged as a possible violation.
It is not perfect but it might catch possible issues before a file is uploaded.
Just got back home from Baileys and had a great time. I was really nice putting real people with their online avatars. The Envato staff was awesome and great to meet in person. Thanks Envato!
I think your AD converters / preamp and interface are much more important than the DAW . If you are working professionally – IE collaborating with other users or working in multiple/major studios protools is still the standard.
Looking forward to it!

Yamaha NS10 ’s and Adam P11a’s.
I’ll jump in with ProTools
Thats a good question, would any of the staff like to give an update? It would be very appreciated.
I am both a buyer and a seller here at the Envato group of websites and am amazed at the quality of themes and templates offered on TF. It is crazy what you can by for $35 dollars. It also amazes me the amount of support potential buyers and buyers expect for their money. When I buy a theme for $35 I do not expect much support. I have often asked small questions or clarification on things that I could not figure out or understand but would never even think about asking for major modifications or support. When I have needed a major change or needed support beyond basic service I usually ask for a quote from the author.
I think customer service is very important – but I also think customers need to be realistic on their expectations.
