Just do not use ”-”. File titles with that are often modified.

Absolutely dire. This month should be flying but it is like someone has flicked an off switch. It certainly plays with your mind.

This time I must agree with you – looks like Sep 11 syndrome.

Hey Spasev, very interesting question at the moment.

My Protools and Cubase are Running on Win 7 SP1 and with updates disabled(!!) This is extremely stable and with high performance. I felt Windows 7 is getting slower and slower with every update during the last two years, so i set up this fresh OS without updates. Of cause this is not recommended due to security issues but luckily my studio PC is offline.

Windows 8 was never a choice for me cause it has a confusing mixture of the old UI and the new metro UI. For your DAW stability should be absolutely no difference but take care when it comes to drivers (interfaces and controllers) and check out if your devices support Win8 before upgrading.

My next studio computer will certainly be a Mac unless Microsoft is releasing a new OS which is stable, fast and with good handling at the same time :-)

Best wishes!

Yeah it was perfect until I was in need of more RAM. But Win7 is good enought and doesn’t disturb me too much.

Most traffic on Flag counter is caused by other authors and by myself so it’s not worth trust. From observations: 1st USA, 2nd Canada 3rd Western Europe, 4th India, 5th Russia and Ukraine, 6th Middle Europe, 7th Australia, Japan Korea.

It’s important to note that overly restrictive licensing (like envato’s current single-use restriction) makes it noncompetitive with virtually Every other royalty free audio place buyers like me buy tracks from.

Normally if a small business owner like me buys a royalty-free music track from an established place, like all the ones that are in business from long before aj was, we can use it in unlimited of our own projects. I will typically just want to use a track in up to 3-5 of my own projects, so not a lot, but I don’t understand why Envato restricts royalty free usage to a single application.

Google ‘royalty free music’ and look at everyone else’s licenses. One competitor changed to single-use after envato started doing that, but not most others. Many places offer bundles, eg 8-10 tracks of which 2 or so are very good, w/unlimited use for a bargain price. And that’s from very large well established royalty-free audio places w/bigger catalogs who’ve been in business longer.

On behalf of other buyers, I’d urge Everyone to google ‘royalty free music’ and carefully check license terms and pricing elsewhere. I spend 1000s on rf audio, but not here due to the single-use restriction. How about opening that up to say 3-5 uses for ones’ own projects, as the standard license, Envato staff?

(this doesn’t apply to PRO/broadcast/film/movie usage; I’m talking about the other 99% which is us small biz owners that want to use a track in a couple of promo free videos as backing etc)

Yes SFX are crying for multiple use variants, it’s just a standard everywhere and in many cases legalizing a fact. No one is able to check how many times a single effect is used, mixed, processed etc.

Indeed that are already accepted. But with number of my last submissions I cannot identify them correctly :)

Haha, poor me ! I’m a Bassplayer moved a long time ago into production and using the keyboard to record notes for allmost 90% of my music … what does that mean tho ?

It means you’ll still be alone, but you might have 2 cats instead of 3. :P

Edit: simultaneous reply with Mihai_Sorohan! :D

I’m also the bassist and I appreciate that no one bothering me and I may pack my gear in peace. Sometimes someone shouts… ‘Hey there was another guy with them, gimme a signature! I say :’If you tell me how many strings has my…. guitar like you said… I’ll give you’. Near no one knows that it’s 5 :)

Another simple way is gentle sidechaining music background by vocal track using sidechain compressors (usually these included with DAW) and eq (sth like trackspacer), by you must work with live track not with premade template.

Vocals differ between depending on genre, individual sound, loudness, emotions and even language characteristics so I doubt in universal patterns.

Sometimes optimizing means arrangement without instruments/sounds playing on vocal frequencies, sometimes it means some equalizing lowering colliding frequencies in music usually 2-6 kHZ. But I don’t know any universal preset for that… it’s like using presets for mastering music in software – very individual case.
