Using T-force make FL files take longer to load, and it takes a bit longer than most plug-ins to open, but it runs fine once it's opened. I just have a stock cheap acer laptop. Idr if t-force has a setting where you can change the quality for playbacks, but that'd help, also I have FL playback set to pretty crap, so it's not as CPU heavy.

I got Sonar when I bought my MIDI keyboard but I can't say I ever used it. I probably should give it a try sooner or later though...

Cubase is fun. It's the only sequencer I use these days, but I hear it's not as professional as Pro Tools, so you'd be better off trying out Pro Tools if you haven't.

Obviously he has some issues. I mean I have that wtf why did I just do something like that moment all the time, but not with killing.... something is obviously not right with him. He's having some severe dissociation issues..."is it a dream? did i even do that? WHY? I don't even understand..." somehow he cannot grasp the consequences of his actions, and that scares me. I hope he gets help.

More like...what kind of mother buys a gun as a present for her son's 11th birthday

I FORGOT ABOUT THAT. holy shit that was unbelievably stupid.
and

Dad: Oh yeah he threatened to kill her before, but I didn't think he was serious.
Kid texts dad: I killed mom.
Dad: Haha, go throw her in the grove
Kid: ...
Dad: Oh so you were serious...

This whole thing really bothers me

Also, I feel like I read this news sometime last year though... unless this is some sort of usual thing now...

While it is the opposite obviously. It's because the kid's mother took away his video game that he shot his mother.

The parents bought their clearly mentally ill son a fucking gun as a present when he was 11 years old.

I'm pretty sure that's called bad parenting.

Also... what about her taking away his video game prompted him to try rape his own mother? Last I checked, COD is not a rape simulator.

I'd just like to mention that I hate the COD franchise with a passion... but blaming the game for a kid raping and killing his own mother is ludicrous.

I agree completely.

I don't particularly care for the game... at all...okay I hate it. What do I think is that, especially for this kid, that game was probably not helping his situation... I mean, he SHOT HIS MOTHER and did not appear to think that that would have any effect? Nope.. Not until he sees her bleeding to death, not responding....dead. Things like that only happen in games, where it does not affect you physically ...because it is a GAME.
For someone with his stability, he obviously can't seem to tell reality is very different from games... so I think in this case, while I can't guarantee the game has caused any of this to happen, it has certainly not helped one bit...
Personally I think he is way too young to be playing that game in the first place, and the whole buying your kid a gun thing was just so, so stupid. So much wrong here. Aghhhhh.

I agree with that... but that's not the game's fault... again, it's up to the parents to regulate what their kids should or shouldn't be doing. The game didn't put a gun in the kids hands, nor did it tell him to shoot his mother. If he can't tell game from reality, he isn't right in the head to begin with, be it the fault of an illness or the parents not enforcing reality on the kid.

I just hate it when people like Jack Thompson come along and say shit like, "This person murdered someone because they play video games."

It's just as bad as the people who bash on musicians (Marilyn Manson is a big one on this line of thought) for the music they make, as if it's their fault someone went and shot up a school.

And yet... no one ever seems to blame Movies or TV shows... when they're the worst offenders of all. Rape in a movie? No one even bats an eyelash... But if someone breathes on the neck of a woman in a game, it's considered rape and everyone throws a fit (The new Tomb Raider).

Not saying people should be blaming movies, because it's not the fault of any medium of entertainment, people don't become murderers or psychopaths because they listen to, or watch, anything in particular, they often murder people because they have issues that they, or their family, don't take the time to get help for.

I know I know. You're right. It has nothing to do with the game, but with the parents giving their 11 year old a gun. Who does that? Whether he's mentally ill or not. And I have no idea where the rape thing comes from. No normal human being would try to do that. Better to let him shoot people in a game than hurt or kill in real life.

Yes, precisely. What I am saying is that although the game is not directly responsible, playing it probably didn't help his already-present condition. He had a problem to begin with, that was either caused or exacerbated by overall bad parenting. By no means should games be blamed for the cause of all this madness... the same is for people who do watch TV and movies like that. I don't think it's that nobody cares about what's happening on TV, though... at least I don't. I think it can also present a major problem.
Both have their issues, and my only problem is that there is a difference. On TV, you just watch and see what is already there (however horrific it is), but with a game...there is a sense of control. And in the boy's case, a false sense of control. Games did not cause him to be this way, but like I said, it should not have been in his hands in the first place, due to his mental state.

I agree that video games get too much unjust flak about this kind of stuff, but I also agree that he was too young to play Call of Duty. There are some things, like Call of Duty, that people his age and below shouldn't have access to.

Most of the time, people that age simply don't have the maturity for certain things, and at that age playing violent games, watching adult movies, etc... could easily become a detriment towards mental development, simple as that. I'm not the type to categorise people based on their age but I think that in this case there's a good reason that there are age restrictions on so many things, even if they may not be needed for everyone.

I totally disagree with blaming video games when stuff like this happens since you can't just claim there to be a direct correlation with playing violent games and killing your mother, but I also think that the age ratings of games (and movies and any media for that matter) should be cared for a little more.

That said, regardless of age ratings, in the end it boils down to common sense and good parenting. If it gets to a point that their son snaps when the game is taken off him for getting bad grades (grades which could have even been due to the game in the first place), then - murder or no murder - something's wrong. He hasn't developed the maturity to play a violent game like Call of Duty without becoming obsessed.

I guess I'm just tired of seeing the 10-year-olds in my schoolbus swear at each other with more profanities and sexual insults than I even know of myself :(.

It's only people that don't play video games themselves that blame them. It's easy to blame something you don't like. That's why more people blame games than films. Violent films are blamed as well at times though. Much more than books. Books get blamed as well.

I think there are a lot of people that can't tell violent games, books or films apart from real life violence and crimes, and therefore blame violent fiction for actual violence. Creators of violent entertainment receive a lot of death threads. It's not just 13 year old kids that turn violent because they can't tell truth from fiction, but the actual critics are guilty of this as well. It's very ironic I think.

Nobody would ever dream about blaming classic music, when a murderer likes Bach. Who would blame flowers when a rapist likes gardening? It's rather odd to make a direct causal connection when a criminal has interest in one way related to violence, but not with anything else. People like to point fingers.
