It's a shame that board died. Lots of music and horrific moral depravity without the tedious fighting witnessed here and on GU.

It didn't 'die'. Louthy decided he was going to recreate Facebook and it just drove everyone away.

I agree Simon - although Louthy resolutely doesn't see it that way - got a bit shirty about it a couple of months back to say the least...

Following the recommendations it got on the recent 'Mubi' thread I've just watched The Intouchables - simple, but heartwarming - good stuff.

If there was an all time biggest footballing c*** award, Terry would be a front runner for sure.

Yeah, every time I watch Chelsea play he goes back to the top of my all-time list - his totally classless post-final whistle 'celebrations' today merely underlining the point.

But then I change channels and after a short while John Terry slips off top-spot and is once again replaced by Dennis Wise who was an utterly obnoxious cunt all the way back then and still tops my personal list.

Two Chelsea players eh - coincidence or what...

Lol.

Being serious though - and speaking for myself only - I don't read manuals because I'm impatient and want to get on with getting results ahead of mastering the kit / software / whatever.

It's ultimately a bad policy.  Not least because it costs valuable time - time which could be spent indulging in #bantz on the Bedrock messageboard ...

I learnt years ago what I'm like - I used to piss myself off endlessly, diving in and getting frustrated - pretty much always read stuff early on now before I get to that point.  That Mixmeister software is ok - like a diet version of Ableton's arrangement view - if you got used to it I reckon you could get some decent results from it - could be a useful tool for some more collaborative mixes - just seemed fairly obvious to me that it must be able to do the tempo control/automation thing fairly easily otherwise there's no point to it whatsoever - look in the inbuilt 'Help' and there you go, a dedicated video...

Real men don't need manuals and help sites ...

Clearly.

I installed Mixmeister about 15 minutes ago and found out how to set/alter/automate the tempo within three minutes - that must make me some sort of cunt - I'll fuck off then and leave you real men to fanny about with it on here...

Just been checking out mixmeister studio v7 and it seems ok so far.
Question though, any idea how to set the master tempo for the mix?

Loaded in a track and its 129bpm and the next track is 125bpm, and when it's mixing into the next track the 129bpm slows down to match the 125bpm track that's mixing in.

Any idea if you can set the master tempo to 126 or whatever and have all the tracks stick to that set master bpm?

Haven't found a way to do that myself, I think you have to set it per track.

jules72 wrote:

Yeah set the bpm on the line below the tracks at the same tempo all the way across. Dont think theres a way of setting master tempo. Did you get this on trial or you bought it outright?

At the risk of stating the obvious; Mixmeister - Help - Mixmeister Studio Tutorials - Controlling Your Tempo...

It's a piece of piss.

In Windows you can easily do it with Foobar2000. I don't know if there are similar tools for Macs.

Ok - ta - I don't have Foobar - will investigate it if useful again though - thanks again   smile

Kev, you could have simply merged the flacs into one file and then recoded it to mp3.

What software does that?

*edit*
Do you mean copy and paste the individual wave files one after the other in SoundForge?  Or some other way?

Finally got around to watching The Trip, very good so far..

Which one fella - Lake District or Italy?

Lake District...not a huge fan of Brydon but enjoying it so far

Ditto.  Being THAT self-absorbed sits a little uneasily with me - the relentless impressions schtick he delivers strikes me as exhausting and tiresome to be around - but despite all that I enjoyed the series more than enough to also watch the Italian outing.

Plus the Lake District is just gorgeous...
