Yeah, at least you can try it and see if it works better for you, ill try tomorrow again with other settings

I've got an older version of it which is free which I got here. The whole package is a portable "studio" designed to fit on a USB stick. It's all I use.

Also francisylf, have you tried using a compressor? That might help the sound a bit. I had a listen to the song in your entry and the sync sounds a bit off and theres a bit of clipping on the guitar track but overall I thought it was a really nice song and fit the mood of the animation well. Clipping can be prevented by recording at a low volume then amplifying and the sync is probably down to latency in your sound card or software and can be fixed by moving the position of the tracks about til they sound in sync. Also you should send all instruments using a delay effect to a single bus and then apply the effect or that tends to sound a bit off. What equipment are you using for recording at the moment?

Sitting in a bus with a 4 hours trip ahead of me, with the excact same feelings. My iPad is almost out of battery, so I'm really hoping that the results will be up soon :(

Each time I refresh the NATA novice/open round I hear that farting sound. Who is to thank for that absolutely ingenious idea? XD

Haha just imagine if everyone put the same fart sound effect into their preoader. Or even better, everyone used a different fart sound effect of their own and when you load up the page you get bombarded with farts XD

We could decide who's fart will go off when, and then sync together the timelines for each submission to orchestrate a minute long concerto in B flatus. :)

I'd definitely be up for that. If everyone joined, the amount of talent in it would be overwhelming.

Lower your brightness!

I think for the last round the results were already up by now. I guess since this round involves actual points it's going to take longer to calcualte than the open round results. It says the NATA account isn't even online right now, so it might not be for a while.

My brightness is always at its lowest! But yeah, I guess I won't last till the results are up. I'll probably be asleep by the time they are published....

4%! I'm fading away! Oh why, cruel fate, whyyyyy?
