Ugh, laptop died last night, and along with it went 200+ project files and 60+ gb of samples, kontakt libraries, and presets. I'm pretty devastated, but I'm already reinstalling some minimal stuff on my desktop so I can get back to work. Something like this ever happen to anyone else?

I did do a backup of all my project files (luckily) but I lost like 70gb of samples, presets and other sounds because my hdd crashed some months ago and I did not back them up. (:
So yeah this happened to me too.

Nope. I save everything on an external hard drive so I still have everything in case my PC crashes.

Yeah. Luckily the hard drive was unharmed, so I just sent it to a shop to get it extracted, copy the files to another computer and it's all good again.

I think my hard drive is intact. My mom's a tech nerd, so she'll probably help me transfer the files over to my desktop.

Today's my birthday, so I took my family out to our favourite local restaurant and I'm supposed to get a Focusrite Scarlett Solo tomorrow.

My mom and I got it out of my laptop and plugged into my desktop, but I think it's corrupted. It says I have to format it to use it, and I'm trying to salvage some stuff with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.

"The Lucky Star" effect.

Walking under the lucky star gets you tons of recognition.

Walking under the moon gets you a few plays and downloads.

Moonwalking is a great dance move.

Mediocrity gets you a front page slot and a few hundred ghost fans. Brilliance gets you... nowhere. It's a real shame.

I shoulda done that.

Got that Scarlett Solo today and I am impressed with how compact it is. I'm a bit lost in the times, so I was expecting something bulky.

Bus stop smokers

Anyone else here hate people who smoke at bus stops? I can't stand them personally. Like, if you want to destroy your lungs then that's on you, but don't do that somewhere where other people are forced to wait near you, inhaling your smoke and getting their lungs destroyed too.

Some people.

Asking to be scouted is against the rules I think. This is an alright track. Hurts my ears though ><

Yeah, I hate that too but I'm not limited to bus stops. I always feel uncomfortable with smoke around me. Luckily I'm not asthmatic and I live in countryside.

Also, I'm starting to have more ideas for an eventual new entry for NIMC. Sounds like a huge diverse final boss remix of Endless Handbag. But I have to do more music for a friend who is making a short movie, still one track.

My guess is that he deleted them. Happened before; he's not an audio thief if that's what you're worried about.

Yeah he deleted them, as you get a link to 'This was removed by the author'. It's more that I don't understand why...

Lich, I've always wanted to ask this: can you make a pic of your studio/setup? You've got so much gear it'll probably take a panorama photo instead of a normal one but I've been wondering for a very long time now how your laboratory looks. :3
