I followed the links, there’s no magic program to remove the watermark. I guess people will just have to keep buying our stuff…. Woohoo!
Well done, That’s great news all round!
It’s not like the track would cost a large amount to license even for broadcast(it should), why wouldn’t they just pay $17 and get the real deal. Weird.
+1 They went to the trouble and no doubt extra expense of hiring another producer to rip off something that would have cost them $17…. I don’t get it either.
On second listen I have to agree with you guys. As a jingle writer myself I get asked to do this all the time, though this one does skirt really close to the edge.
Oh well Tim, imitation IS the highest form of flattery I guess!
Yeah. Pretty much identical. Won’t be buying that juice. How do you like them apples?
For quite a while I was using line6 POD HD 500. Now ive been using a mixture of amp farm, amplitube, and guitar rig 5. Mainly for flexibility in the mixdown stage. Im a guitarist by trade and have tried alot of different solutions.
I think alot of it actually depends on your ability to extract tones from the guitar itself. The attack of your strings from your pick/strings can play more of a factor than your software emulation.
Guitar rig is a bit of a fav right now, and I dont mind softtubes amp room simulations either. Goodluck in your search!
Matt! that looks amazing! nice setup! And, you had exactly my thoughts on the mackie mcu. Too bulky for everything else that goes on a modern project studio desk, keyboard/mouse/etc, and ive had mackie stuff break just as much as behringer, so there you go. So Im looking forward to when the x-touch is released, so I can start riding faders again… yay. I note they are also bringing out a midi controller keyboard with motorized faders as well! I’d go for that, but it doesnt have the scribble strip, which I think is a must.
Hmm, sorry to pee on the bonfire, but I saw this during NAMM and instantly thought it looked like a cheap, ‘made in China’ knock-off of the MCU Pro by Mackie (below, which incidentally I use).
I’ve had so many bad run ins with Behringer stuff over the years, that it’s going to take quite a bit to reel me back in, so this really doesn’t appeal. And already I can see they’re relying on tried and tested formats from other companies. Doesn’t sit well with me I’m afraid.
I was literally about to recommend that you consider the MCU Pro as a quality control surface (you can also add extension surfaces too) as I’m also a Reaper user, and my MCU Pro runs absolutely flawlessly with it, but then I noticed you said it never appealed to you. Oh well!
Mackie stuff is also built to last, something worth considering here when compared to ‘the B word!’
Thanks for your recommendation! No worries, I am sure we’ve all had our bad experiences with behringer, hey, ive had a fair share of my own! I just have been looking around and knew the MCU pro was the only thing that came close to what I wanted. just glad to see there is a viable alternative, for a lot less, but with a decent warrantee. Anyway, Im tempted by the x-touch, and will report back once Ive had it for a few months. Hopefully its all good!
P.S Reaper users unite!!!!
Dude. That’s awesome. Next time tell them cash payment won’t be nessasary. You would be willing to accept a car instead of cash. !
petrenj saidI am fine without a controller. A good transparent monitor controlling unit will be fine
It looks nice.But, I dont know how much it can be useful.Probably it is.
Yeah, for years I used a digi 002 desk and got used to having faders and all the rest right there. Now I’ve moved on from protools to reaper I’ve been missing a good control surface, and the mackie stuff never appealed to me. This looks good though, and 3 year warrantee is reassuring.
