Well, what I meant was they might be confused about having a "limited" account and think it's something that gets revoked when you confirm it via e-mail. It seems kind of weird to mention that as a prank otherwise.

Aiiii. Drama is drama is goes away in like a day. Man the WA7 looks glamorous... I shouldn't be looking at new things though I've spent like 50% of my checkings account in the past 2 weeks.

Oh I think that's it. Maybe she did mistype it if she types fast enough. Might need to contact Admin Joe then.
Really tempted to just get the Flat-4 SUI now, but that's like half of the month's allowance, and I only have like, 4 SUIs (heh) worth of money in my bank. The pain.

I know that feel. I think I even have less in my funds. But recently I've been researching the ER4S/P extensively and I feel it's calling out to me... Do you guys ever get that feeling that a certain thing, whether audio or not, is just begging to be owned? For a complicated reason I fortunately don't have (easy) access to my savings for now, so that keeps my purchases in check.

I'm not going to avoid talking about audio hardware for fear it will distract me from music appreciation.

If anything, having a lifelong fascination with both music and gadgets is complementary. Being able to appreciate how the voicing and technology of a given system affects how I perceive the music has affected how I enjoy music.
this is close to what I feel. Sometimes I am afraid that I am listening to the quality of the reproduction too much, and not enough paying attention to the music.

Quite a few times. Like my Nokia N8 and my Nokia 808....

Excellent!

 

Let's decide it then.

 

  • Artist - Title of song; youtubelink
  • Whatever text you want to associate with your submission
  • Larger theme

 

Should we try having a go at it? Let's try it with a time limit of a week?

 

Also, I think it would be more than swell if you wanted to update the OP with it, so it would be easier to find the theme and the mixtape-list when it's done.

I think that's pretty much it.

On youtube there's also the possibility of creating playlists!

 

I just remembered one thing that we should decide before doing this. Someone needs to be a "Theme master". Personally, I think it'd be a great idea to change all these responsibilities each time, so we can take turns and no one has to do more than anyone else. So, someone could be a theme master now, and then appoint next weeks/months theme master, and so on.

 

Today I have had this weird tune on repeat

For anime and manga stuff, I go to the Animenation forums. Decent folks there, more of a "grown-up" crowd. Just be warned, they know nothing about audio-gear!

 

If I can rec a song for the mixtape, how about Ray Barretto's "Deeper Shade of Soul": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ko7IDbccUoM

I first heard this song through a cover version of it done by the band Urban Dance Squad about 20 years ago. Always lifts me up when I'm feeling low.

Araabmuzik working the MPC like Buddy Rich working his backup band.

I need some help on my end involving music management software. I updated my iTunes a couple of days ago and for whatever reason iTunes in it's infinate wisdom decided to scan my whole music library and quote normalize the audio of my library unquote. The end result, not only does it sound like crap but the volume is ridiculously low on all my tracks. I'm having to crank the volume pot all the way to 4 o clock just to get a half decent volume level. When I play my files using Windows Media Player or or VLC everything sounds fine though and I can wind back the volume pot to around 12 o clock. Is there any way I can make iTunes reverse it's crappy normalization crap. If I didn't have an iPhone I'd probably just chuck the software and explore other options but I can't.

 

EDIT

 

Never mind, I went into preferences and under playback I unchecked the sound volume check box and checked the sound enhancer option and slid the bar to max and all is back to normal. I was like WT.... for a second.

Hey everybody, AnakChans review is up concerning the TH600. It's a rather interesting read.
