    woes haz to prune the cart >.<

    this looks kewl, cant afford it though.  antique harpsichord vst


    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KBXIYU4

    Have you checked out this one? I don't know how it sounds, but it's $70.00 cheaper. http://sonivoxmi.com/products/details/harpsichord#overview

    ....compared to this both of those are a bargain.

    HOLY MOOSE ON A PLATE!!!!! indecisionsurprise

    No WAY would I pay that much for a virtual instrument!!!!! frown

    ...the differnce is that instruments sampled are effectively priceless century old works of art that, unless you graduated from say Julliard or Eastman and were a recognised concert organist with a good booking agency, you would have no hope of even touching the keybaords with the organ turned off.

    Part of the reason for the high price of the instrument module and base programme (which included a number of sampled organs including a lovely 18th century German baroque organ I have actually heard in RL) is that they sampled it note by note, pipe by pipe, and the programme effectively "recreates" the actual instrument as if it were in your home (with the ambience and delay of the cathedral/hall it is in).  The full base setup (core programme + Notre Dame de Metz organ, + console and computer box) would be about half half the price of a "dedicated" digital organ from say Rodgers or Allen of the same size (3 keybaords, pedal and 35 - 50 preset stops). Those begin at around 25,000$ and go up from there..

    Yeah, still a lottery to be sure,

    Here is the sound of one of the sampled baroque organs (1730 H. G. Trost Orgel Stadtkirche Waltershausen/Thüringen Germany).

    Here is a performance on the Cavaille Coll Notre Dame de Metz instrument of 1903. (this is the base console that costs 7,500$ the upper one, probably more as it is more ornate and has a fourth keyboard).

    No Allen or Rodgers digital instrument will sound this authentic.

    ..and the cool thing, I can play either isntrument (or any one of how many I have) from the same console.

     

    come on lotto.  i like the idea of antique instruments.  hear how ther were hearing it back then.

    I'm sorry but I've heard ancient pianos.  Don't care for the thin, shallow sound.  Mozart would have gone nuts over a modern Steinway or Bösendorfer.

    My day is long so far and getting longer, iz terribly humid, like being in a pool with your clothes on. Yeah the MIDI is a keypress thing, works best with a two or three octave KB with pitch control for bending notes. I use MIDI a lot for animatronics, gives the operator something to do :) 

    A three point edit is the basis of every cut, two in points and one out - whether you work film or digital or tape you have to do that. Choosing where the in and out points go iz the artistry :)

     

    2 beginnings and 1 end?

    and a mousse smiley

    Is the minimum cuts you can usefully use, learning to make choices around those three is a lifetime journey. Once you got the ins and outs (scuse pun) of three point edits from an A roll to a master you need to go five points from A and B rolls to a master...

     

    cant find anything like that under vegas tutorials.

    think is more pacific than under cinematography.

    lol  setting up a course schedule for myself.  with homework. enlightened
    still on the midi editing.  didnt understand there was 2 types of VST.
    not trying to make a masterscore >.<  just some soundtracks for carrara movie.
    if i can make some kewl midi tracks, planning to reward myself with the harpsichord VST. or the era ii medieval thing. lol  sackbut

     

    found a demo on the toobs.  THIS be some nice music for dragons flying in the carrara sky clouds

    looking forward to that :)

    thunderstorm and wind advisories.  check the UPS batteries. wind + electric wires = >.<

    success  win 7 and activated (by non-smart phone)  got the drivers from asus installed.

    hit a snag on the install, kept telling me couldnt install on gpt partition, even after i deleted the primary partition.
    deleted all the partitions, even the recovery one. went in to bios, turned off UEFI under boot, cms launch.
    phewww  

    So, you actually did it?  You installed something that you got from somewhere else?  If something you paid for in that system doesn't work, you've lost your support because you wiped the drive and modified the system.  The seller wins now.  They have your money and I don't think you have much recourse now.  I hope it works out for you.

    ...Chopin on a 19th century Pleyel or Broadwood is magnificent.

    Trains are hard cos they are all big and stuff and need bigger stuff to make them look that way. Crowds are hard cos there are so many of them. Those are my complaints.

    I've got a Yamaha digital keyboard gathering dust at the back of my office. I bought it some years ago in the hope that I'd learn to play it. Nope. Like every other nearly-flat surface around here, it just got covered in junk, papers and stuff.

    I hear that also happens to exercise machines that were gotten with such high hopes.  Instead they become another closet.

    Also happens with beds.  It is surprising how quickly after the last offsrpring finally moves out the bed becomes a convenient shelf.

    mann they don't make it easy to enroll in benefits these days.  forms and instruction come piece meal.  a whole page on 401k explanations, but no form to enroll.  2 medical plans to choose from, nuuuthing i heard of before.  and i have to find medics 'in-network' or it costs an arm and a leg and a kidney.

    complaint - g3 works with new poser script, but can't use G3M in carrara, not fair.

    complaint - 6 days since my birthday, still no cake yet.  

    cantaloupe chunks for lunch.
    starbucks has a new butterscotch latte, gonna grab one of those on the way to bus.

    ...6 days and the cake hasn't arrived yet?  Crikey it's probably as hard as a rock by now.

  • kyoto kidkyoto kid Posts: 31,630

    ...really nice day yesterday.  Rode through the old hood by the little park I used to go and sit at on nice days, then stopped at one of my old hangouts to sit in the sun and sip a few pints.

    Weather about to go downhill for the next week or so, lots of wet stuff on the way.

    Sorry, but when I see the title of the thread, this is what comes to mind.

    i fixed it, i fixed it.  not actually singing 'i fixed it' out loud, cuz it's not gracious.  lol

    they wanted winxp on a vista laptop, haz a serial port can hook up to old routers and multicouplers.
    install was crashing with hard drive error.  
    thanks to my recent wrangle with win 8 to win 7, i knew hard drive partition can gum up the works between os-es.

    ran through a whole mental list of what couldn't be, process of elimination.
    went into bios, changed hard drive type to IDE, the laptop default was ah something.

    anyway, winxp install went smoothly after that.

    tee hee, feels good to fix something after looking at it for 10 minutes, that stymied everyone else.

    outloud i am gracious, and won't sing my praises  lol.
    i'm headed for a sugar crash. blaming the gidds on sugar.
