Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I have limited interest in computers and much prefer the look and working methods of big, chunky, robust hardware. Old-fashioned or not, I much prefer it to a boring pc screen and mouse. Sure, they maybe software that can do more, but will it improve my music ? I doubt it.

Amen to that,I hate software sequencers(apart from Reason)infact I've made a pledge that I will never use a software Seq for creating music again,I was always playing "Engineer" trying to get everything to work/record,that by the time I got to record anything properly,I had lost all the inspiration or the idea had gone,I've got lots of software synths and find them great for stand alone playing,but I will never touch a Software sequencer again,I've found my "niche" hardware Device,I know Cubase inside out,but a computer for me is far too volatile,that although many people have a stable setup,I won't ever use one again,doesn't matter how stable it is or how someone tries to convince me otherwise,I'm hardware all the way.

I've got a Roland MV8800,which allows me to work in a fast and intuitive way for songwriting,and its very powerful in terms of features,infact it rivals a lot of the software sequencers I've used,I would say it was on par with Cubase,although the Audio tracking side of things is limited its still possibly the best Hardware sequencer I have ever used.All the Audio recording is done via a stand alone HD recorder(Korg D16XD),so I utilise a 100% Hardware setup.

Although I'm not one for sitting making music with a Mouse, but the MV allows the use of a Monitor and mouse,so its capable of being used in a software type application,which I like,because most hardware seqs,display little visual info that compete with software,so the MV allows better visual detail via a Monitor without the bullshit of software crashes etc,plus you can still use the MV front panel buttons in the same way using a Monitor/Mouse so its easy to use in either mode and still retains that hardware integration,the Monitor just gives you a better viewing window,but the on board screen is pretty good anyway.

Nice Studio you have there!!!,thats what i like to see,a setup with no cable mess,nothing more off putting than sitting in a room full of spaghetti,to me a neat set up is inspiring and inviting,working in a studio is as much about the ambience and clean surroundings as it is to be able to play the instruments.
