Im excited. Avid is my main NLE both at home and at work (although were still rocking 5.5 at work) Just waiting till the weekend to try it out. Not a huge rewrite or anything but some very welcome features, mainly REAL background transcode, not transcode that stops when you start to work ala FCPX. Cant wait to see that work in the real world. Also the built in LUT and frame flex thats keyframeable is gonna be sweet. FWIW, going into FX mode can be made with one key command (mine is shift-y) where in FCP 7 you have to double click and tab over. Actually more steps the FCP 7 way. The mode to mode thing used to bug me, too; but when I got a little more simpatico with the software, it disappeared as an issue. You begin to understand that it is there so that you can operate more efficiently in the mode you happen to be in. It also has become so easy to cross between them, mouse-wise, that I don’t think about it much. You can save on avid. Its one of the joys of Media Composer.
I bought my V-MODA True Blood O Positive Vocal headphone based on the reviews, and they did not disappoint. The bass is awesome, everything is crystal clear, and I heard details in songs that I’d never noticed before in 3,000 times of hearing them.
They also have other cheap earphones that also seem to get great reviews, which I’ll probably spring for if I ever lost or broke the ones I have.
In my experience is what you can afford. Freeware has a tendency to work just as well for most home applications, but paid programs can have automation options that are quite convenient. Being able to specifically track a given intrusion has as much to do with your attention to detail as well as detailed knowledge of operations. The only things I would suggest is to add a personal firewall layer, and be most attentive to where you go and who you transact with. Beyond that, if someone is specifically targeting you, there’s really not much you can do but clean up the aftermath and learn the lesson. The real issue is whether you are being targeted individually or just as a bulk effort.
The best resource for computer security are Software Security Solutions and firewall. I’ve been using both of the above mentioned for years, and after using the free versions went on to purchase the full versions.
I just made new slipcovers from mine out of pretty sheets and made them pillowcase style so I could take them off and wash them when needed. I made my patio cushion seating longer than needed so I can tuck the end under. I need to make new ones this year,and I already have the fabric. Remember the old barkcloth type fabrics from the 60′s,70′s?? I found a whole bed set at a senior garage sale .It has the duvet,shams,and is a very pretty Hawaiian type print. Gotit all for 7.00.
Check out Texas Pride Trailers, I have one of theirs and it has done well, 14K trailer but I would not put a backhoe on it regularly. But with 450 you would do better than I do w/ a 350. I go my equipment trailers at this site.
Biggest issue with most trailers is the electrical systems, many just run wires and crimp on those cheap connectors. Lowboy has a sealed harness that is in a word….reliable.
It’s mostly used for connecting unbalanced 1/4″ instrument outputs to balanced XLR mixing desk inputs.
These days, a di box can have multiple functions from splitting, adding vibe (aka color the sound in a good way), interfacing to computer inputs etc.
A typical use in a live show would be to hook up electronic keyboards, acoustic guitar, or an electric bass guitar split to the PA system.
In the case of a bass guitar, most DI’s have 1/4″ unbalanced input *and* and unbalanced 1/4″ output in addition to the XLR output.
So the hookup would be: electric bass -> DI -> 1/4″ out to stage amp
-> XLR out to the stage box (PA snake)
If you have one leg longer than the other and like to cook, this is the answer. The result of my friend’s surgery is that one leg is 1/2 inch longer than the other (yes, a tall gal to begin with and our friends are teasing her about being yet taller), and the kitchen mats really, really helps. My friend loves them so much. Not pretty, but who gives a poop if she can stand upright without listing to the side when she is doing a long cooking thing. Pay the bucks and take the hit for the good stuff.
I’ve tried several of each new Buffet Crampon model bb clarinet and I would say the new Buffet Crampon clarinets are excellent. Some of the models are heavy (I forgot which). They have a great tone, intonation, etc. Several of my favorite clarinetists play new Buffet Crampon models and sound great with no problems. They feel good to me and they play in a way that is comfortable to me. The Bb Clarinets at WWBW are definitely worth
Weber makes hundreds of speaker models. They sound warm, smooth, deep, balanced, loud, clean, clear, lush, powerful, punchy, dynamic, detailed, sparkling, complex, and succulent; but sometimes there’s a steely grayish coloration in the upper midrange! They are a sweet sounding speaker,the highs are clean and they will get warm and breakup smoothly,it does take some volume though by pushing just the amp. You can check out the weber speakers at musicians friend. A lot of people I know buy their stuffs at musicians friend.
