Had a Minirig sent through last week, useful little speaker and shipped with it's own handy zip case.  I've even found a home in my studio for one as a 'small speaker reference'.

I appreciate the focus on portability/sound/build quality (where it should be) over Bluetooth/Airplay/Dock faffing and fancy marketing.

Would recommend,

Speaking as a pro musician I use both, macs for office/fun stuff (they look nice) and a RME MADI rig comprising of a couple of racks of  Win 7 Pro 64's for the pro stuff.   Mrs Mash uses fully speced Macs for her design studio purely because it's all she knows!

Nice place to visit, but i wouldnt want to live there.

A decent room in a house share in Clapham must be 800 month, that's more than my mortgage.

I found it quite the opposite, guaranteed headache after visiting - too much to get your head round/settle in.  The vast majority of London is hugely shit, it takes a while to work out exactly what you want from it and where to get it from - if you have the motivation to do this you'll find yourself in an extremely rewarding place.  Rent does seem intimidating at first but feel it's great value for what you can get in return (inc. money if that's your thing).

I moved from the west country to London just over four years ago - greatest city in the world, came here as a tea boy and a year later I'm scoring films in Abbey Road...fuck yeah.

My main advice would be to walk as much as possible, I'm fairly central (just off Shoreditch High Street) and quit cars/public transport years ago - had a lovely walk to BBC Maida Vale Studios & back for a recording last night, well over ten miles but saw loads of cool stuff I would have missed out on stuck in some stinking taxi.  If you can live somewhere good within a few miles of your work defo do it so you can walk, will be really good for you mentally, physically & financially, and for short journeys save you time.

I personally avoid South London at all costs as come over in a horrid rash whenever I veer south of the river Puke

Was strongly recommended this software and thought I'd pass it on!  It seems you'd be absolutely barmy not not have this installed on your laptops/phones - tiny program that sits idle on your device unless you register it stolen on Prey's website, at which point it takes a photo on its webcam, takes screen shot of desktop, gives location on gmaps, their IP address etc. every ten mins. It's completely free & hopefully you'll never even need to run it, I was burgled a few months ago & if installed on my laptops could have helped identify the cheeky little monkey.

Works on Android, for iPhone users make sure you have the 'Find my iPhone' app if you don't already.

Acoustic Energy AE22s (actives). Don't bother with cheaper monitors, save up and get something decent. They aren't the bassiest of speaker, but you can get a sub if you really need it. But not recommended if you have close neighbours!


Astonishing monitors for the money, see them cropping up as 'b monitors'/references in an increasing amount of good studios - Phil Ward who designed them is a top bloke who seriously knows his shiz.

In my experience private schools breed significantly better musicians - a healthy mixture of discipline and being able to afford good teachers/instruments to inspire you from an early age, along with their more competitive nature of achievement.  Any of the music stuff (of a high standard) I was involved in at school age I was in a SERIOUS minority being from a normal school.

in my time i have purchased a fair few computers, every time giving Microsoft a chunk of money for yet anther o.s , its my opinion that they actually owe me the upgraded o.s for free (considering that most of the 'upgrade' is for their security).

this is the same with music, in my time i have bought every Pink Floyd album in every format, yet i am not allowed to down load it? i already own it? its a fucking fraud thats what it is, its obtaining money by deception imo. and nearly every facet of life has been hijacked in this way, it was once that things were built to last, now it seems they just last long enough until the next model comes out, this is not by accident.

Haha - not heard that one before  Doh!

Empathise with music licensing through - I think it's fair you should be able to download music you already own the license for for the administration/server costs (few pence).  And you must be much, much older than me to have avoided the capitalist society we live in that generates such perpetual discontent with everything that isn't the latest and greatest.  Me, I love it, new shiny expensive things are awesome.

Well if it wasn't this - http://www.software4students.co.uk/Microsoft_Windows_7_Professional_64_bit_Upgrade_Edition-details.aspx

Give MS a call and double check they can't give you an activation code that will work.  If it doesn't I also suggest you stop being a pikey and buy the correct license.  If you, or any of your family are in, or are employed by education you can buy the above legit for the price of a few beers.
46  General / The Forum / Re: Microsoft - are they getting cheeky? on: November 07, 2010, 14:01:40
I don't see the problem, the W764 upgrade license (as long as you bought the disk, not the download) upgrades from ANY version of XP/Vista.  Just back up your data, pop the upgrade disk in and get cracking.

about 2 or 3 tracks a week,

i make music every day

That's interesting. Is it quite rare for someone to be churning out that many tracks or are there lots of people that do this?

I'm don't consider myself a 'producer' (I've always known the producer role as a sort of middle manager who oversees the creation of music) but compose roughly a track a day.

This thread makes some good points regarding PT HD Native.  The SOS review is happening in a friends studio and everything sounds really encouraging!  IMO PT LE is largely useless - yes it looks like the real thing but so many of the features that make HD so popular just aren't there.  I don't personally need PT HD as my mixers/studios have all that stuff but have considered picking up a HD3/4 in the past for when I need to import/export the odd thing from my writing rig, but couldn't really justify it for something I could do without - but PT HD Native could be just the ticket, as I'm sure it could be for many others.
