I see many controllers for sale next year.

Maybe at reduced prices, but I agree a lot of people got into this thinking there is no work involved at all, boy are they in for rude awakening

ROFL Surfing! That's exactly what I was thinking for the answer to "What's a Chipmunk" too.

Maybe you should post a photo of the female California type too? LOL

In many cases, you can hover over the icon to get the name. Then simply do a search in this forum to see what people have done with it. In some cases, they'll post screen shots showing what they've done. Take the time and read thru many of the threads - it'll help give you ideas, and then when you're stuck, you may have an idea of which threads to go back to that provided more assistance than others.

Much of it is personal preference. Your first song isn't going to be perfect. Neither is your 10th song. But you're going to look back at your first song and realize you could've done this and that with it, and will reprogram it. It's all part of the learning curve, which admittedly will never end!

As for the icons in the top tool bar. Ah just hover the mouse pointer and a text box will pop up with the tools name.

As for the repeating notes on the grid. Use the selecting arrow and high lite the notes. Then do the copy and then select the place you want them repeated and do a paste. There are short cut keys, but I just have not spent the time to train myself those key clicks. Again there is a list in the help area that contains the list to the short cut key strokes.

Okay, now I have to ask William, did you make those yourself or are they available for purchase somewhere?

Asking because I've never seen those before and Alvin and the Chipmunks songs are what I used to drive my late parents crazy with by playing their songs over and over again. And I wouldn't mind having those "chipmunks" in my display either.:)

They can't be purchases anywhere. The talented Robin Stublen made them a few years back. I acquired them this past Summer when he was selling his items.

Jimmy, rather than try to cram this stuff into your head, just relax and learn it. A PhD isn't earned in a day, a journey of a thousand miles starts with a step, and LOR is no different. Absorbing it will take time.

My approach has been to learn one new thing each day about the software by researching and trial. It is surprising how much you will pick up in a week's time, and then look back a month and see the distance you have covered. That may or may not work for you, but it is an idea and yields some "tangible" results.

Don't expect a perfect product (your sequencing), especially just starting out. In fact, I have sequenced about six songs so far, and all of them will get another "glance over" because of the things I am learning as I go. As your skills progress, things will get faster and results will be better.

And keep your channel count reasonable. A total of 16-32 channels is enough to figure things out, in my opinion.

That was one very lucky acquirement! Wish I could be so lucky to find something that cool for my display! Those singing Chipmunks of Alvin, Theodore and Simon, including David SeVille you got are just awesome.

Thanks for letting me know. Had a feeling someone had made them, wish I had the talent to make awesome stuff like that.

I could have made them if I wanted to. But... being that Robin was in your back door, He let me have first dibs of everything in his display that was for sale. It made my life much easier. Plus... I got another chance to shoot the BS for a while.

What a great person to have as a good friend!

That brings to mind the difference between knowledge and Wisdom. Knowledge is knowing how to catch and roast a chipmunk. Where as, wisdom is knowing that chipmunks should not be caught and roasted, especially in the state of California where they are protected.:D

With it's strong beat, that song is a good choice for your first sequence. I haven't tried that particular song, but the Beat Wizard should be able to work well with that (if you purchased a Basic Plus or higher license).

ineed to know things like how to put in repetitive notes on the grid...
After setting the timing grid for the beat, I would sequence one measure, then use "Edit -> Copy", and "Edit -> Paste Multiple" to copy it to the end of the sequence.

I remember feeling the same way you did when I first started to sequence. But like everything in life, if you keep doing it, it will magically get easier.

Next year, you will look back at the sequences you have done this year and think: "That really looks like a beginner did it." And you'll be right, but you can improve it every year, as long as you don't give up.

I knew you guys from Min. were a different breed LOL :P oh by the way I can't make it for dinner George. I am allergic to chipmunks.

Yo Don, if they are the same size as up here or in the mountains then 1 bit and it is gone. Of course if we were to hunt & eat chipmunks up here, we would more than likely get 20 years with no chance of parole for 10.....so you have no worries of ever eating chipmunk until you go for a visit.
