Kephas

Kephas

I woke up this morning and was shocked to hear of the passing of Kephas.

Richard has been on Mixposure since the early days and was even a dj for awhile. He was an extremely talented musician and a frequent visitor to our chat room so many of you will be as shocked as I am. 

We have lost far too many great artists over the years. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Happy New Year


By Admin, 2021-01-01

Happy New Year! 2020 Has been an incredibly tough year and my guess is that everyone has been impacted one way or another with either Covid or the cascading side effects from it. Let's hope 2021 does a complete 180 and returns us to a normal lifestyle where our biggest worries are do I buy the Gibson, Fender or the PRS? The one nice consequence of 2020 was I spent a lot of time with Kat and my daughters. You have to make the best of the situation you are in and this was without a doubt more fun than I could have imagined.


Thanks to William Thompson, Jim Rustemeyer, Joseph Rodríguez, Ron Bowes for keeping MixStream Radio alive.

Eddie Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen

Tragic day to all of us guitarists who grew up trying to be anything close to Eddie Van Halen. This man created a whole generation of guitarists that will continue to grow thanks to his genius. You will be missed EVH but never forgotten.

Halloween 2020


By Admin, 2020-09-20

With the Pandemic still in full play, a great distraction would be our annual Halloween Song Submission! I think this is year 14 of doing this?

For the uninitiated, here is how it works. 

  • The song should be based around the Halloween Theme
  • Any Genre is Welcome - You can make it scary, comical or whatever you like!
  • On October First, we will add a specific Genre for everyone to use so we can track the songs
  • Vocals are not required but they obviously help sell the theme
  • Please post any questions you have!
  • Once your song is complete, use a song genre of Halloween 2020

Just Ranting


By Admin, 2020-06-27

Girl in a jacket

I had a nice desktop gaming computer sitting around doing nothing after both of my daughters upgraded. Since I have been in a self-imposed musical retirement, I figured I would finally relinquish my Alienware Windows 7 (yes that old) desktop I was using for recording. As I am installing my trusty Cubase Artist v6 from 2010 or 2011, it tells me it is too old to even register. I figured ok now what? Previously I had updated to version 6.5 so I must need to do that.There is an update link in the Help drop down in the application so I clicked the link. Much like my registration attempt, the link was 404 which means, not found. 

I did some research on the Steinberg Website and found some forum posts that said Steinberg basically just killed off the old versions. As someone who works in software development, I get the money grab but it still pisses me off. If you want to install Windows 95 on an old PC, would you expect it to say, "Nope Sorry, You Need To Update To Windows 10" and here is the amount? No you paid for that version and it should work! In their defense, Artist 6 was only "supported" on Windows 7 but I read post where people did get it to work on Windows 10 prior to all of the updates. 

Not sure of what the outcome of this will be. My Presonus Audiobox 44VSL has been discontinued but I noticed the drivers are recent. Maybe it will still work!

This ends my rant!
