is anyone in our goverment thinking about the long road ahead...like it's our 'tax payer' money that is being used to help bail out the economy.....
maybe it's time to start thinking 'outside' of the box....like for example, oh, I don't know..maybe become a true 24/7 society and let the people that our loosing their jobs maybe actually work a different shift and hey who knows..maybe greedy corp america will wake up and realize the more people are working and making money around the clock, etc and buy around the clock..maybe our profits will go up....
just little things like that..

and for peep sake....come on already..get rid of this BULLSHIT!!!! daylight savings time change..it's not helping us at all...
little things like this I think will in the long run may help our economy...

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: Intel vs AMD DAW
« on: November 04, 2008, 12:19:44 PM »
since I am a tech support person who has extensively worked with both pc and mac platforms, it's just the little things about the way apple does things that I prefer pcs...:)


Personally I think Windows/Intel is better.

Fair enough... but do you say this based on familiarity with both platforms, or are you just saying Windows/Intel is better because you've never used a modern OSX/Intel Mac for any length of time?

Not being a smart-ass here, but in my experience those who express a strong preference for Windows are almost without exception people who haven't spent more than 2 minutes using a Mac in the last decade.  The people I know who have been exposed to both platforms and understand them both, without exception prefer Apple and MacOS.  I don't say this as a way of saying "see, you're wrong," but as a way of saying to those who really haven't investigated the platform that they should consider there might be something they're missing.



Can you do that in the Mac? I don't think you have that much flexibility.

Building machines from scratch?  No, Apple's whole plan is that you buy a machine entirely designed by Apple, and since the motherboard and the CPU and the video card and the RAM and the OS are all standard Apple stuff, the system just works without any BIOS tweaks or firmware flashes or other hacks.

If you're a hobbyist who just likes that kind of "under the hood" stuff, there's nothing wrong with that.  Some people like American muscle cars because it's so easy to get under the hood and play around... but recommending a '67 Camaro to someone who just wants a reliable commuter car is a bad recommendation, and likewise recommending a hot-rodded, self-built, tweaked and overclocked PC to a person who wants a reliable tool for getting their work done, is a poor recommendation.

But again, for those individuals who love tweaking and manipulating, and seeing how far you can overclock your liquid-cooled CPU without frying it, then for sure the Windows/Intel platform is the best way to go.

I am going to be quite frank here...but since I too use primarly a PC custom made desktop for my music recording since I use Sonar for many years around..I too ran across the AMD finally hit it's threshold and my music started dropping here and there and finally took a serious look at intel and it's performace....I say go for an intel but definitley NOT the latest cpu or motherboards since they JUST came out and let them work out the bugs and stability issues.
I have read too many issues, problems people are having with the quad core configurations, maybe not all, but enough for me to go core 2 duo only at this point and I have never been happier....been very stable for me and no issues what so ever.....
but definitely go with a custom made desktop if you decide to upgrade....OEM's just limit and I think hinder the performace on their desktops....

Has anyone here had experiece with both Intel and AMD cpus in a DAW?
I have an AMD chip and am frustrated with how quickly it gets maxed out.  AMD just doesn't seem to be suited to sound.

I'm thinking of upgrading and going back to an Intel chip, probably a quad core.  And no, I'm not thinking of going mac. ;)
Any happy intel users here?  Any suggestions?

Also, does anyone know about the benefits of dual versus quad core for DAWs?

Just got to thinking about our side of the music and do you think image for us counts and helps make an impression on people like Pop, Rock & roll, etc walking down the red carpet???

another one that hollywood butchered was some of Dean Koontz's books for example, his novel, Hideway movie with Jeff Goldblum....now that was a freaking train wreck...
but I loved what the tv mini series did for his recent books like Soul Survivor...right on by the book...very good mini tv movie...

they usually played it at the end of the episode when he's trying to thumb a ride...that simply piano part in the background...


also I bet people missed the little 4 bar original hulk tv series tv theme right there when he's in Mexico.....the piano part

cameos by lou ferrigno and bill bixby (courtship of eddie's father on a tv screen) were subtle and cool! the movie was typical but well acted.
i missed it but then i did not know the theme music.

hehehe..yeah..there's little easter eggs, etc that one misses first time watching the movie due to the action going on....but watch again 2 and 3rd time and you will see them..
one hint I will give for one is at the very end when beth and rob are in the gondola and he pans the camera out through the cage and you see the ship on the horizon...did you catch the splash down near the ship???


soooo...did you catch 'everything' in that movie yet??:)....took me the 3rd time to really start catching the majority of things..

How would I know if I did, or didn't?  Is there a checklist?

We watched Cloverfield Friday night and it was exactly what I had hoped for, which is a subwoofer-pumping big-screen spectacle, loud and frantic and lots of fun.

It wasn't great cinema by any means, but I do wish there were more action movies like this, lean and streamlined and without all the b.s. and cuteness that gets heaped onto every Hollywood action flick these days.

yeah...I loved cloverfield..
also got finished watching One missed call....kind of fell short with me compared to the Grudge.....

I just watched The Mist last night. Anyone have any opinions? I know the ending provoked a lot of mixed reactions - some hated it, some loved it. I'm not sure how I feel, frankly. I certainly didn't like it as much as I did Cloverfield, which I thought was scarier and, from a "monster movie" perspective, was more realistic and "possible" (!) Since most reviews of The Mist tended to be good ones, I would have to say I was mildly disappointed, but would still recommend the film to fans of the SF/horror blend subgenre.

I definitely recommend this....some very awesmome music.....

so go download it and enjoy..:)
