Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Hard Drive Clicking
« on: November 23, 2012, 04:01:17 PM »
Hi there,

let me first complain a bit  ;D

There is no doubt I would very much enjoying to s... the person who had first the idea of non-customizing idle behavior for Hdīs or those which trying to make the life of customers difficult wanting to find a solution.

As iīm very sensitive to get the right HD for my laptop machines (Mac and Windows) this issue is a pain in the ass (and not neck). Most reasonable  2.5 HDīs having 7200rpm with 16Mb cache. As for this specifications arenīt a lot of options i bought this three:

For my Windows machines:

SEAGATE Momentus 7200.5

Western Digital WD7500BPKT Scorpio Black 750 GB

For my Mac i bought:

Hitachi Travelstar 0A72335

All of them have the same clicking problem!

For the Mac i found a solution by using "hdapm"

I have two Windows machines (XP and Win 7) and here i first tried to use the tools the manufactors offering....most of the tools arenīt updated and (more worse) you can get them only by direct by them or via some "detours". Of course (lol) non of those tools work for newer Hds, it seems they donīt want to give anymore users the option to change things.

I donīt want to discuss the issue of mechanical problems which can occur by this parking issue but to complain about this companies believing they had a good idea. I canīt believe anyone isnīt annoyed hearing this constant "click, click, click" in a rather silent environment. I can only think about 2 reasons why they do it:

1. We see our customers something like a sheep - they will get used to it

2. We do this, because in this case we can minimize problems if people donīt handle their HDs well (this parking position avoid loosing of data when for instance it falls)

Of course, option 2 is obviously the reason, but by reading customers reviews on Amazon Germany (or simply google it) there are A LOT of complains about this clicking issue...of course those companies have to take care about those stupid majority who think they can tweak a computer and if something bad happen to claim the manufactor, but not giving ANY option puts off any professionals too.

In any case, today i tried several workarounds and finally found a tool which did the job - even itīs not official supported for Win7 it WORKS perfectly!!!

Finally silence - I just increased in the Settings for AAM the DC value for running on battery to maximum too.

Cheers,

"Beyond the Veil" is the new album by Aestrata, a project based on the title of our most successful album - "Aestrata" by Tomas Weiss & Mathias Grassow. As we received a lot of responses for the old album (now repressed for the 2nd time), we decided to move the "Aestrata" title into a whole new project name. This project retains the same strong depths and feelings found on the 2009 album, specializing in vast atmospheres and complex harmonic layers. The project is particularly created for late night listening explorations, deep relaxation and personal reflections. "Beyond the Veil" and all upcoming "Aestrata" releases are limited to 100 copies only!

We have a preorder running for some days now where you also can find an info (updated several times per day) for remaining copies. Anyone who is interested in this edition, keep an eye on the update of available copies. While writing this post here, we have already only 25 copies left of the whole edition.

Everything and Nothing / Music by nerves
« on: September 10, 2012, 04:33:56 PM »
I do think, this may become a very interesting and important issue for artists which are interested to "reach" audience:

http://www.smh.com.au/technology/sci-tech/once-again-with-feeling-australian-science-tugs-heartstrings-20120824-24pp4.html

http://www.voanews.com/content/in-australia-brain-power-fuels-emotion-driven-music/1492182.html

Of course, nothing for those which are still believing in musical visions like "individual creation (no matter how it sounds or not sounds) plus public access"  ;D

Computers, Internet and Technology / Myspace - Thats it
« on: August 04, 2011, 09:24:29 AM »
Hi there,

not that this portal was ever something very serious and handy but they just donīt listen to users at all and even was restricting options without announcing it.

The cherry on the top was yesterday - i got an invitation and opened the site (which i havenīt done now for ages) - then i clicked on the play button on the first track. And what for hell happened? A new site (!!!!) opens just for the bullshit player - this is completly rediclious and stupid.

In a "very good mood" after this i deleted right away any account i had there. Or better i tried (hahahahaha) - first you have to go through several steps (why you want to delete your account?) and if you donīt click one of the pre-option it doesnīt continoue (LOL). So if you click on one option, then there comes an "convincing mode window" how you can solve the problem....here you have to click once more on "Cancel Account" - and then there come another one where you have to click again "Cancel Account" - wooow, seems there are some idiots doing their job (very proper)!

Finally i clicked on the last button......and.............nothing happened (hahahahaha) - only if i pushed it (not joking) in a machine gun effect in one step it worked! Its very likely they have builded something on this last button that you cannot go through it by several clicks!

I really hope Myspace will soon crashing and have to stop business....this bullshit needs to be cleaned up from the market.

Cheers,
Tomas

Listening: Podcasts, Mixes, and Music Sample Clips / Who can help ?
« on: February 09, 2010, 11:28:56 AM »
Iīve played a DJ-Set some years ago in a radio station - unfortunately i donīt have a playlist.

Iīm trying to find out 2 tracks iīve played there but my Vinyl collection is too huge to narrow down these tracks.....as you will hear on some positions (clicks/scratches) the format is Vinyl and i donīt know if its released as CD too.

Maybe someone can help ? Here is the MP3:

But be prepared and warned  ;D - this is not Ambient
