I rewatched Magical Mirai 2015 this morning on Blu-ray. It's one of my favorite concerts now. Kaito does "Snowman;" Meiko does "Nostalogic;" Luka does "Just Be Friends;" Rin and Len do "Remote Controller;" Miku does "Sweet Devil" and "Cat Food," and closes the show by singing "Hajimete no Oto"...with the entire audience of Makuhari Messe singing along .
There are people from multiple major cities celebrating in the streets here in the US. The police are there, like they'd always be, but just looking at both sides, there's no hint of any desire for violence on either side. I've heard they're ringing bells in Paris, and really nice messages are coming in from other world leaders, too. This is the happiest thing I've seen on TV in years.
Thank you to everyone who voted, and thank you to everyone who has been patient with us during this gigantic nightmare.
I've heard (from anime, and somewhere else that I can't remember) that in Japan there's a practice where some people like to put mayonnaise on pizza. One of these days when no one's judging, I really want to give that a try, because it seems like it would be, if not awesome in a very-bad-for-you way, at least very interesting. I wonder if it works best with specific kinds of pizza (Like, does it have to be some kind of seafood pizza that would be more likely to be served there?), or would any kind of pizza work...?
It's late to be saying this, but Election Day in the United States is on Tuesday. If you're able to vote and weren't planning to, please consider casting a ballot. At least one thing you sort of see all over is true: this is hopefully the most important electoral decision we'll ever make. It's really important that everyone gets their say in.
Just a PSA to be careful when online/checking email. I've gotten a bunch of spam phone calls and one suspicious email, and someone I know got a virus. So avoid going to shady places, and if you get a communication/popup from someone/something you don't know or that you didn't ask for, be suspicious.
The "delay" is called "latency". I have 2 MIDI keyboards and I use them in Studio One, there isn't a lag. I DO have a lag with my guitar when I record it, though! The problem is because guitars aren't MIDI instruments and you have to hook it up to an audio box to record in real time. Studio One...
Not sure why the preview is from a post talking about latency, but I made a post about my thoughts on today. If you're interested, I hope you'll have a look at it!
Question: AHS offers a "crossgrade" discount on Synth V where you apparently just put in the name of another company's synth software & get a discount. With that available...why would anyone pay full price? I'm just kind of curious--I guess they're gathering marketing data, but it seems like even someone without any other synths could fill something in. It's like they're throwing money away....
An idea I've been kicking around lately: I seem to be most creative in the morning. It depends on how I feel, but if I'm going to be creative, it works best from an hour or two after I wake up until...some undetermined point in the afternoon, maybe 3/4-ish? Past that, I'm usually mentally/emotionally tired enough that my mind is about as creative as a tofu brick.
Trouble is, EVERYTHING else happens in the morning. Work is in the morning. On the weekends, stuff that has to get done (because it couldn't be done during the week, because of work) is a top-priority thing, so it comes first.
