Quote from: "Sam_Zen"I obviously hit a nerve here.Quote from: "xaimus"It eats a lot of space, but does save CPU time.It shouldn't eat significantly more space, because 3 seconds of sound is 3 seconds, with one or with 15 instruments.

Quote from: "Matt Hartman"I guess I mainly wanted to inform you that there is some great technology out there that's really worth the look. There's so much of it now that you're bound to find some of it quite useful and simplistic. I beleive despite the fact that you seem pretty well settled into your musical cubby, there yonder spans a whole new world of experimentation out there waiting for you, ripe for the picking. That is, if you are so inclined.
QuoteNow, the joking is over. This is really pathetic. You don't assume to know anyone on a personal level, well then it would be a good advice to follow your youth habit : saying nothing. Let me give you the facts :(I don't like this, but sometimes it is necessary)
QuoteI'm 61 years old, I'm working about 40 years now with electronic devices to produce sound. I experienced the change from analog to digital. I started tracking in the pre-windows age on a Dos 6.2 machine. I'm allowed to call myself a studio- and a computer-engineer.I give courses to fellow artist about how to deal with the XP-system..
QuoteAnd you tell me to come out of my 'musical cubby' to find out about the latest wonders of technology ?? Or you must have a kind of humour, unfamiliar to me.
QuoteI just wanted to question the hypes about 'faster' and 'bigger'. If one would follow this blindly, then one would end up fetching the shoppings with a Ferrari to the grocery just around the corner.
QuoteBesides that, the goal to keep a program running with as little power as possible is also a social one :Poor people have 'older' computers, so it would be nice if they still can enjoy it too.
Quote from: "Matt Hartman"if you are aware of this technology as you've stated, yet choose not to use it.
Quote from: "Matt Hartman"Though we may not always agree (really who on Earth does?)
Quote from: "Matt Hartman"if I were a person of wealth you'd have a new machine at your doorstep when you wake up in the morning. What you do with that is totally your choice.
Quote from: "Harbinger"tend to want to change their environment, even if that environment includes other souls
Quote from: "Harbinger"Sam_Zen can't exactly come out and say, "Well, wait until you're my age," because that's completely ineffectual
Quote from: "Harbinger"clock speed to about 150mHz. I've learned that THAT is way too slow. If the sound layers become too thick, the patterns stutter and skip
Quote from: "Harbinger"I would like to know, if changing the sampling playback type (Linear, spline, XMMS, etc), if that affects the speed.
Quote from: "Matt Hartman"I can hear his musical achievement nonetheless. I read it as "I'm breaking away from Westernized music"
