I think for me, it’s more audio that’s been the addiction…. for a very very long time. I started pulling apart my dad’s speakers when I was like 12 years old, looking at cross-overs, trying to understand how improvements could be made, destroying amplifiers, creating line arrays of mismatched drivers, building custom baffles for speaker projects that I didn’t know at the time would never make sense to follow through on. Audio engineering and acoustics rolled into that, I was also producing and mixing, trying new speakers, comparing what I already had, sinking money into gear like it was going out of style. About four years ago I got totally lost in vintage stuff: I hit thrift stores on a daily basis, perused craigslist constantly and found deals everywhere. I probably acquired/tested/sold around 100 sets of speakers and dozens of amplifiers and receivers over the course of 2 years. Sometimes flipping gear even paid my rent, making it more addicting. I also met some very cool people (coolest was meeting one of the techs who built a number of prototype speakers for Apogee – the Apogee that makes the huge ribbon-based speakers that is).

It paid off in spades when I got a job that actually relied on my understanding of acoustics, speaker transducers, analysis and editing. It’s good to get lost in that stuff. I’ve recently got back into collecting/hunting for new gear and picked up a set of Rectilinear III Highboys and a Sherwood SEL-200 receiver for $10, a set of massive EV Sentry 500 studio monitors for $195 (came with a free 20u rack), pair of Speakercraft 6.1 LCR bookshelves for $120 (positively brilliant speakers), Def Tech BP-1X surrounds for $50 and more. I’ve been so addicted to this stuff that I’ve walked into people’s houses who do professional sound for a living and told them more about their own gear than they knew themselves. lol

Unreal man, but you deserve it. Your stuff is beyond top-notch across the board. That’s really how it’s done.

for example i have recorded this sounds Camera Shutter Sounds http://audiojungle.net/item/camera-shutter-sounds/5097332 of course those are mono. why Audiojungle need stereo ?

It’s more to support the largest degree of end usage formats. EVERYTHING supports stereo redbook files in terms of media implementation and editing, but sometimes there can be issues handling mono or interleaved files. It’s just more standard overall to use stereo even if the source itself is totally mono.

Audiojungle peeps can do music packs…? Can no-one else really sell groups of files together? Seems odd. A lot of those packs do reaaaally well in AJ.

Community superstar award? I think so ;)

On a side note, I threw it a curve ball by trying to see if it would find a slightly differently mixed piece of mine that’s on audiojungle. I think I broke it! It returned the following error page:

But still! Very very impressive my friend.

Loooooove the Zoom H4n. But for the money the Tascam DR-05 is hard to beat.

You may be talking about pink noise. White noise is inherently always going to sound grainy.

Whatever you do, don’t go with the FX-6300. Barely any better at all than a 6 year old Q6600 Intel for audio production honestly. I was pretty ticked after benchmarking it to see how barely passable it was.

If I use anything from Microsoft at all these days it’s either because I’m required to for my work or there simply is no other option. They aren’t exactly making smart decisions these days anymore (with the sole exception of at least ousting Balmer).

i.e. Windows 8 should never have existed. It was a useless and horrifyingly obvious money grab. With a company that would perpetuate that, of course bing sucks. Google proved that they were even stealing results directly from google in the past.

Looking at that website, the sheer desperation of microsoft to try to prove anything at all about their poor little bing service in such a way reeks of the reaction of a sad floundering group of talentless hacks, struggling to scream at an indifferent world that they really are “something cool” by accomplishing the marketing equivalent of putting on stunner shades and popping their collars.

In the end, it’s some group of bloated 40 year olds at a club trying to pick up women half their age, all looking woefully out of place and only wishing they had any relevance to the hipster scene that’s been stumbled into. Poor microsoft. They really need to stop doing drugs and grow up like a big company.

Oh? Bing has a new homepage everyday and google doesn’t? And somehow we’ve defined that small useless tweak as “better”?

There there microsoft… it’s time to take your medicine and lie back down, you’ve had a big day what with all your complaining to the other residents and walking aimlessly down the halls making a noise or two. There you good. Good good. Okay, get some rest you’ve got a big operation tomorrow.
