Everything and Nothing / Get Well for Jim Brenholts
« on: September 24, 2009, 08:24:04 AM »
I just wanted to let everyone know that our own Jim Brenholts(Rigel Orionis) is in the hospital and had a mild heart attack last week. So just wanted everyone to know and wish him well out in Cyberspace here:)....

I just found out last night myself considering we(Orion's Belt, Jim and Me) just finished our second collaboration cd and is being finalized..

I don't know other people's views but I love Seagate HD's...had 3 for over 5 years and still ticking away....


I'm just wondering how the two back-ups were affected, if you have it as external drives. That also confuses me. I also do the same thing for my music files, and so far it hasn't happened to me yet. My backup drive is a Seagate hard drive which I put in a usb HDD enclosure.

It's an older PC, with a small HD (80GB), so I kept the music on one external drive, and backed it up on the other - I had it set to do auto-backups weekly, since I am still adding files, and didn't want to do it manually.  Somewhere in the last few weeks, it went bad, so the backup of the failing drive was compromised too.  I let it keep three backups, so luckily, the older backup was still good - the other two were missing files.

I've been told that most external backup drives aren't designed for constant access, just backup - they apparently can't take the stress of constant reading/writing.  Sounds fishy to me, but then again, my drive IS failing...

LOL...
well..that's why there's such a place called, The Bunny Ranch in Neveda...clean fun sex ;D and it's very legal...


If I don't get, ahem...relief, soon, I am contemplating doing this.  Besides being illegal/risky healthwise/morally wrong, is there anything good about it?

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Best way to organize studio layout
« on: May 12, 2009, 10:16:37 AM »
I have decided to save money is to modify my current studio desk and add a sliding tray underneath the desk just for the control surface and put my keyboard back ontop of the desk instead of swinging around 90 degrees every minute:)...I will probably take photos and post them as soon as I am done with that project..
thanks.


the bad thing is that I have a Tascam FW-1082 control surface and I am afraid that if I used one of those keyboard slide out trays, it won't hold the weight of this thing and go crashing right into my keyboard:).......

That tray is pretty heavy duty, its not  like a keyboard tray on a cheap computer desk. It should easily hold your 14 pound Tascam controller with no trouble. My concern would be is the tray long enough to hold both your controller and keyboard.

I have been eyeing one of these, kind of on the expensive side, but would be great:

esp the rocketship model...exactly what we need

Einstein,
I have the exact same problem where my midi keyboard is at a 90-degree angle from everything else.  Seren, I see you do the same thing as well.  ;)  I've been on the lookout for a desk with a very wide slide-out shelf that would be long and strong enough to accommodate a midi keyboard (instead of a standard computer keyboard).

Has anyone seen such a desk?

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Best way to organize studio layout
« on: May 09, 2009, 07:40:32 PM »
Hi there,

I am trying to figure out the best way to organize my studio and was wanting some input from different people here on their layouts and their way of working in their studios...

right now of course, I have a table with shelves for my monitor, speakers, amp, etc right in from of me, but I had to put my keyboard at a 90 degree right angle to the left of my table and keep my control surface in front too, but I would like to bring my keyboard back in straight in front of me without having to keep turning 90 degrees everytime I want to see the screen, etc. How would I go about doing this but also keep my control surface in front too????

thanks for any input you might provide..

If a pic would help...let me know and I will be happy to provide one...

Well dummy me accidentally put in the wrong expiration date for my credit card, delayed the mailing of the cd I purchased, I had to re-order the thing Friday, so now I am checking the mailbox every hour:)......
is it here yet??? Is it here yet, is it here yet hahahahah
I too am going to love this album from the 5 minute samples that the steve roach site put up on their site and btw people...I listened to the samples over and over again and realized these weren't just .30 second ones, but almost 5 minute ones to get into the drones, etc to fully appreciate the songs and the full scope of this album..
