Whom and Whilst are not words any more than Thy or Thou.

After I finish this STEM grad degree that I so eagerly wanted under my belt, I think I will get into jewelry making. Metals and stone, yeah!

Maybe I need a DAW program or a plugin that just does drums. Then I can import the midi to the DAW that I use to add other instruments. The low end soundscape is the most important part. Without a simple workflow, I'm lost.

Anyone use Akai MPC products, either standalone or with usb connected to your DAW? The MPC studio may be my next research project for this.

# quantizing

I basically want the grid sequence function to have IA and ML so when I select the bar measure and then record 4 bars, the DAW will auto recognize the time signature and the optimal quantizing settings in case the user wants to align the midi notes exactly on the grid. So many DAWs have a quant function, but it never works correctly. Midi notes are far of from their reasonable placement on the grid. Garageband v 1.1 was the best I've seen at this. Now it's 12 versions later it's not the same.

What I am looking for is simple workflow to both record in real time and step mode (on the grid). Most if not all DAWs have this. But what they're lacking is a streamlined approach to accurately quantizing to the time signature grid. I want to be able to turn the quant function on and off at will. I also need it to accurately place the block on the correct grid line per the selection. Logic Pro X is too sloppy, Garageband did away with that functionality. Ableton Live's workflow stinks.

For those who specifically write and sequence MIDI drums & loops, what's your preferred DAW or software?

What if humans have 9 lives too? And each time you fuck up and die you come right back, but you forfeit a significant chunk of your long term memory.

Damn you Microsoft Word. I'll use a goddamn oxford comma if I goddamn want to.

Vegan Support Needed 

Please sign the petition to have the Los Angeles Animal Services switch the food they feed their 33,000 dogs to a plant-based vegan diet.

My 2 profs this semester are overly difficult, to an extent I haven't experienced. It's 100% online grad courses and the campus is an hour + away from home. Illegible handwritten notes and grades scanned back in. Heavy-handed grading that picks apart the slightest formatting error. Syllabus and assignments are full of spelling, grammar, and sentence structure errors that are difficult to interpret. Stringent file type requirements for papers. Will not respond to email. Do I file a complaint?

Society's full transition to renewable transportation and power-generation energy has to start with a grassroots movement to show how the jobs of everyday people who work in the non-renewable energy (e.g. local coal burning power plants, the corner gas stations, or regional oil refineries) can successfully maintain employment during the change over without any disruption. The difficultly lies in the long logistical chain of the industries and how it impacts multiple communities simultaneously.

I have plans to start a on and I need your opinion. I'd like to start a community for people to connect on so we can help each other.

Do you think I should build a chat community (Like IRC or Slack, I'm thinking Rocket.Chat)?

Or, would a forum like Discourse would be better?

Pls re-toot. I'd love some help deciding.


I have a little exposure to VB and Java, but not enough to be employed as programmer. If I were to stick to say C++ or Java and buckle down with 2 semesters of classes (intro and advanced), at what stage would I be at on the path toward employment? Will employers take coding projects from classes as a work portfolio?
