For everyone stuck with a Sony’s MicroMV format, I
have bumped into something that’s close to being a consumer capture proggy, although still
CLI. All you need to do is run it and you’re left with a number of MPEG2 TS
file with no additional garbage in them. Thanks Eric!
As a sidenote, I wonder if the new FinalCut supports MicroMV cams, since
it’s essentially identical format (to my eye at least) to the few HD cams out
there. If this worked, it would be really nifty to be able to edit the streams
directly without needing to worry about interframe compression. Not that I’m
willing to spend a thousand bucks on it…
The NIN frontman Trent Reznor has released the new single as a multitrack project file. Sadly it can only be fun to play with if you happen to be a licensee of Garageband, but a cool experiment nevertheless. Looking forward to hearing some mixes showing up.
The track alone isn’t anything new we haven’t heard before, but in this case it’s a bloody good thing .
I wonder if there are any free software projects to build a loop-based multitrack composer similar to Garageband or SonicFoundry/Sony Acid. They are cleverly hidden if they exist.
Also because I have written some rather
positive things about the M3 it is
my duty to let everyone know it spends more time in repair than in use.
After having presumably filesystem issues (songs would hang the machine, some
skipped) I decided to format the drive as fat32 as the user guide suggests and
the device just locked up during bootup since. Even worse when attached to the
computer it never registers as a USB storage device. That about a week after I
finally got the remote replaced. Sigh.
