They totally gutted and tried to make it a souped up version of iMovie. Every professional editor I know has stopped using it and moved to either Adobe Premier or Avid. Basically they tried to dumb it down to make it more mass market and in doing so removed most of the “Pro” features. Honestly it is really sad.
It looks like Apple is abandoning the “Pro” users in favor of mass market consumer products.
I would wait to see what the next version looks like. If they do to it what they did to Final Cut Pro it will be un-useable.
Thanks for including me!
I’ve seen quite a few guys play drums on keys, some are really great at it but I don’t ever feel like they groove or fit in the pocket like a live drummer. There is nothing like having a world class drummer play on your tracks – the feel and nuances they achieve are amazing!
I used to work for an advertising agency that made $40,000 a year by holding their vendor payments 90 days before paying them.
I have to concur with Gareth’s post. I live in Nashville which is a music center in the United States. There is a term used in Nashville called being “A Good Hang”. That basically means you are cool/fun to hang around with both in the studio and out. As with most of the music business – it’s all about relationships here as well.
Congrats! I love your work!
I think it is a great idea! +1
Thanks for the kind words and endorsement! I am really glad you were able to get the sound you wanted on your project. If you have the budget it is always nice to get someone else to master, even if you do everything else (produce and mix) on the project. When I produce albums I always try to use a different mastering engineer (even though I do mastering) because that last set of ears can really make the project sparkle and fix things you might have missed.
Let us know when the project is released. I really enjoy your work and would like to hear the completed project!
