5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressed, 19 Mar 2013
I specifically wanted a device that would allow me to record and mix tracks on my average (windows 8) laptop.

The Boss ME-25 caught my intention as it acts as an audio interface and comes with a light version of cakewalk sonar.

I'm not particularly technical, so very pleased to report that this device made it extremely easy - the tutorials that come with the software were essential, and easy to follow.

My first four track effort was achieved using included drum loops, two guitar loops recorded through the ME-25, and vocal track from a microphone (also recorded through the ME-25 - as a microphone pre-amp, the unit works, and result is acceptable - but… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A Primer primer, 25 May 2007
I really enjoyed this film. Not for the cinematography, plot, characterisations, or acting (all of which were at least competent), but for the 'challenge' of it.

The blurb's comparison with Donnie Darko drew me to it, indeed I hadn't even heard of it before I saw it on the shelf in the video rental shop. I read the synopsis and, intrigued, took a chance on it.

The first thing that struck me was the feeling that the viewer was being excluded from the story: rather than it being performed for my benefit, I felt like an eavesdropper. No effort was made to signpost significant development. Even while the protagonists are simplifying their theorisation on the invention to… Read more
