News Of The World...

by Chris Randall

Pew Pew Pew

That's the next Audio Damage VST/AU plug-in, right there. You'll meet it on Thursday.

In other news, as many of you know, our friend Jeremy Highhouse (man-about-town in PDX, the other half of RT60, and one of the nicest people you'll meet in this business,) lost his rather large video/audio modular due to theft a few weeks back, and as this modular was actually part of his livelihood, he's pretty much fucked.

After much hang-wringing and arm-waving, we decided to do this. Long story short, a $10 ticket gets you a swing at the Audio Damage Omnibus: everything we make, including hardware (a $2600 retail value.) The proceeds will go towards replacing Jeremy's modular so he can get back to work, and the remainder will go to the Children's Music Fund.

And finally, Sequencer 1, our next hardware product, is basically mostly working at this point, and we're about to pull the trigger on the production run. So this will be a busy week for us; expect a couple updates here, the release of Basic, and a whole mess of Sequencer 1 mediablitzen.

Exciting. I'm sure I'll get this anyway, but do I need it if I already have Monark and Razor?
Easy to buy the raffle tickets- everyone should go for it. Great cause, great prizes.

can you pay with paypal?

I'm seriously credit card adverse,

Sounds like a good cause. I'm in for a couple tickets.

Not to be a wiseass, I'd hate to loose my gear, but out of curiosity: would insurance have made a difference, or does it not work that way in the States?

...And if it would make a difference I can turn this into a suggestion and reminder: insure!

In the European countries I have lived, insurance has been decently cheap. Only once have I had a break-in, 10 years ago in London, and I actually turned a profit since most gear had been bought used, but the value calculated by the insurance company was for new replacements...

Love the look of the UI from the photo. This might be your best one yet.

i'm excited to put this new plugin through the wringer!

and yes, everyone who can afford to do so should donate. for real. (i'm being selfish here, as that RT60 record is a recent fave album, and i want more of it, haha)

@onar3d: In the US, auto insurance does NOT cover the personal contents of your car. If your car is parked at your home, your homeowner's insurance *might* cover something stored in it, but definitely check the policy.

Auto insurance won't cover it, but gear insurance will. link []

Insure your shit people, especially if you make your living from it.

My wife's violin got broken somehow in storage. We filled out the paperwork, took pictures, got the estimate and they cut us a check. Simple as that. I pay less than $800 a year for about $80K in coverage.

A number of points:

1. The insurance. ASCAP (and, I assume, BMI and SESAC) all provide fairly low-cost gear insurance. You should have that. Jeremy didn't. (Note that if your home is broken in to or burnt down or whatever, your homeowner's insurance will not cover your gear, either. It must be insured separately.)

2. Do you need Basic if you have Monark or Razor? My initial instinct is to just say "yes" and leave it at that. But honestly, I have no idea whatsoever of what kind of music you make or how you make it. My answer is largely based upon the fact that I would very much like to have your $39. Perhaps asking one of the other users that has both, once it is released, would be wise. I'll say this much: it's nothing like Razor, which is not a subtractive synth. In fact, it is the opposite.

Heyo! Thanks to everyone that's already bought a ticket and shared the raffle on the net. If you'd like paypal instead, I added that as an option towards the bottom of the raffle page. Thanks!
