I was confused by the title. Pinzebra is a womens underwear company in Germany.

Congrats on the achievement. :D Oh well this will help stop some of the spam followers who basically follow every author on here, in a hope they will get more exposure from people seeing their avatar I guess. 2000 is still a lot more than anyone will need to follow for any sensible reasons. :D

Just reminding everyone that if we want to be heard regarding the new badges, it’s also a good idea to fill that short survey at: http://themeforest.net/community/badges

Cheers, filled it in. :)


I think we should give up. Community never wins against the staff… :)

If the badges stay as they are, I’ll agree you’re right. :P

With this and the badgepocalypse, it’s the worst Envato birthday ever. :(

Just adding my voice to say that I find these badges really very bad looking. I miss the coloured paws. I’m open to changes if they are well done, but these ones look badly designed and unprofessional, and I think they have gone too childish / cartoonish with the style. I would much prefer a more straightforward re design of the existing concept.

So when does it end exactly, EU time? Cheers..

Early hours of tomorrow morning. About 3 o clock British time I think.

Apogee Quartet

Good to see Apogee have moved into audio, but I preferred their 1990s video games. :P

I agree with most here that the trending feature is cool, except too much focus on popular files. The original idea was to boost exposure to newer files due to the increasing amount of new content submitted and reduced home page time.

The word “trend” itself means something “new and currently popular”.. so it defeats the purpose also showing top sellers as trending files. These should be in separate category called “Popular”.

We need to differentiate more between popular files.. and new files that are currently popular. Therefore the trending feature must be based on a limited time period. So the result is a “trending item” is a forerunner to a “popular item”.

The 3 life stages of an item should be “new” then “trending” then “popular”. The “trending” feature sole purpose is to help a new item become popular.

Maybe a possible solution would be when a file has a certain amount of sales it doesn’t show up as trending any more, like 100 sales or something. Or it could incrementally get more difficult for it to qualify as trending as its sales total becomes higher.

Komplete Audio 6. Nice budget option, you get a bunch of software with it.

Ohh is that bad??! I really need to try it… Some people told me they got good results, not optimum, but good results.
I’m just learning a bit about mastering now. My previous mastering work flow consisted of boosting the treble eq and putting the track through a limiter, so very basic. :D I’ve just put a rock track I’m working on through Landr and the result does sound pretty good. I chose the “med” intensity setting. There’s no clipping (the source track had about 5db head room). I’m sure you’ll never get the greatest results, but it may have its uses for doing a quick master. I’m glad I’m finally looking at proper mastering of my music since it’s really an eye (or ear) opener for me how much better and punchier the rock track sounds. Just putting it through a limiter gives you quite tame results I guess.
Do you use an RMS (root mean square) track meter plugin of some kind? That makes quite a difference to loudnes as it takes the average volume and eliminates the peaks (if my understanding is right). After that the limiter can boost the loudnes even more than before. :)

No, not heard of that. I’ve really just started to learn a bit about mastering, before a few days ago I knew nothing about it at all. Clearly that needed to change since I’m producing music. :D
