A vow...

by Chris Randall

Okay, I give up. I'm not going to slag other sites any more. There are two reasons for this course of action:

(1) It's like shooting fish in a fucking barrel. That's only fun for like the first couple fish. After that, it's just sad. To illustrate this point, I'll note that Sonic State has just broke the amazing story that SSL has released a free plugin. I mean, they _just_ broke it. Only two weeks after it appeared on every single music blog and forum on the internet. I guess they were too busy leafing through Roland product liturature trying to decide what they're gonna buy with their employee discounts once Roland gives them all jobs.

(2) If I complain too much, and others complain, it could possibly have the (I'll grant incredibly unlikely) effect of these sites actually cleaning up their act. Then it would be a lot harder for the good sites to actually be Above The Herd. Of course, we don't have to worry about that, but like I said, I'm an optimist.

So, I hereby announce that I will no longer diss Sonic State or Record-Producer.com. It's like making fun of the kids getting off the short bus. They can't help it. They were just born that way, and no amount of electro-shock therapy is going to change anything.

No Way. You can't do it.

BTW, have you seen this great post:

Apparently, if you're not using ProTools or Pyramix, and you didn't buy your PC from 'Terra Digital Audio Systems', then YOU ARE SIMPLY NOT PROFESSIONAL!

A long time ago, on internets far, far away, there was this bootleg video done in a "cops" style documentary, but with Star Wars stormtroopers. I mention this, because one of the troopers had this quote about the planet they were stationed on being the "ass-end of space", and Chris, I think you've found the ass-end of the internet with record-producer.com, to go right along with that CA-16.

I 'suppose as long as there's enough cool/interesting shit to balance out the rants, you're doing fine. Yes, Behringer and idiot web "entreprenuers" and "experts" are like shooting fish in a barrel, except that in the case of the fish, they didn't choose to be in the barrel. These folks you're calling out - they walked right into the line of fire.
