Care to share?

Well the right can on my $160 headset just up and died on me. Right after that, my $120 mouse started making a wicked annoying high-pitched beeping sound whenever I moved the cursor. A couple hours later and it refused to track horizontally.

Ooh somebodies a high roller, well I can say a $120 mouse is COMPLETE overkill, you can do well with a $30 mouse or the one that comes packaged with your computer! What in the hell is the benefit of a $120 mouse unless it was custom made, glows in the dark and was signed by bill gates.

As for the headset....Hmmm, we talking gaming headset or something? You can get those for friggin $40-$60 or something.

Yeah, I do a lot of gaming. The mouse is pretty fucking neat, aside from the fact that it's now basically a paper weight, and the headset was really nice too. It had built-in 7.1 surround sound and was the best listening device I'd ever owned.

I'm just pissed off because one shouldn't have to expect problems like this WITHIN WEEKS of buying such expensive devices. You'd think they'd make them better.

I just have shitty luck I guess. At least they're still under warranty.

You sure he's European and socialized?

Either way, the dude's fucked hardcore for sure. He can't escape the truth.

Nope, he's a 72 year old Turkish guy who doesn't speak Dutch all that good.

Anyway, i got to the police station this morning at exactly 9:30. The guy i was supposed to meet there who normally handles bigger stuff (when he showed me pictures of the bastard's car on his camera he had to search for them first and i saw pictures of a burglary and something that looked like a dead body on there) was late (yes, reread the sentence now because the stuff i put between the previous brackets was way too long to remember what the sentence actually was about in the first place and hey.. i'm doing it again).
I waited for about 45 minutes (he was late because he had to go to a burgled(?) house) and then he showed up.

He was a pretty cool guy. He scratched some paint off my car and told me how things were gonna go from here.
Because the paint samples have to get investigated in a lab which gets thousands of these cases, it's probably gonna take about two months before i get the results.
After that there's gonna be a case against him (at least, if the results are going to be in my favour.. which i don't doubt) and i might even get to go to court.
He told me i should definitely do that if i get the chance, because it's quite an experience.
And he also told me that it was quite clear for him; there's red paint on my black car, there's black paint on his red car and he told me came across as an honest guy.

And now pics or it didn't happen..

Assuming you didn't purposefully set it up like that, and taking in to consideration the hours when you're probably asleep, it's basically a 1 in 2,799,360 chance unless I'm doing something horribly wrong.

I used it for a while.

If I recall correctly, there's a thread made specifically for Ableton Live related questions, right? What happened to it?

I downloaded a demo of sakura, it's suppose to be standalone, the interface loads and all but I can't test it out. I need the piano roll or something.
At the moment I can move the stuff around, but no music is being made. Don't tell me I need a working copy of FL to try the demo of Sakura....Uuuuugh. I assume a demo won't work with a demo?

And halp guys?!

Sakura is pretty lame from my experience with it. Then again, I don't really use the kind of crap it can produce to begin with.

Can you elaborate, these are things I need to know, what, was the interface difficult to understand? Is there a steep learing curve? etc. things I gotta know man, things I gotta know.

Everybody calm down and grab a snare.
Recorded at the school where I teach (yes, I'm that old) as a part of a lesson about phase (two mics facing each other).
3 sounds in one file, a short damped one, a normal hit and a "trata" (short flam).

$25 is pretty expensive for a bit of forum flair...

I don't really care though, I didn't buy it for the tag. I just wanted to support NG because I spend enough time here that I'd feel guilty if I didn't.
