    Guys, do you need to have a mixer to connect MIDI to a PC?

    Only Obama could get gas to $2.50, end 2 wars, get bin Laden, bring unemployment below 8%, then be told he's failing as president.

    You can also connect it with USB, some mixers can do that.

    These cars come cheap from the auctions.
    Of course that one needs a paint job, but whatever.
    I'm starting to look more seriously at these auctions, seeing as it's going to be yet another 5 weeks, at the minimum, for the crown vic title to come back in.
    I'm starting to think that title won't be here until February. That car isn't worth waiting all that time for. You can pick a new one up with lower miles for cheap at these auctions.

    This depends entirely upon what you mean.
    If it a usb cable transmitting midi data then no, you can just plug that right into the PC and be fine.
    If its an actual midi cable then you can get a midi to usb adapter from the internet
    If its a midi instrument and you want the audio out of it then you will need to use something like a 1/4" jack lead as well as an audio interface. Unless the instrument has an analogue to digital converter built in in which case you just need a usb lead.

    I was losing hope in finding a way to manipulate objects across a plain in Blender, but I just found out how to do it. This is going to make modeling some objects so much faster, and easier too. :)

    And if you're just messing about with an instrument emulator that wants a MIDI connection and only have your computer keyboard to play on, try using loopMIDI with VMPK.

    My barely one year old, mildly used, 500gb PS3 super slim just stopped working for no reason. Turns on but light turns off right after and nothing happens. According to google it could be a bunch of different stuff such as PSU, GPU or something.

    My PC will be getting a 500gb hard drive in it at this rate...

    I never ever thought that i would be able to fill all of the PCIe slots on the back of my PC case. Thanks to the need for firewire that day has now came (provided that the firewire card in our old pc is compatible with my motherboard)

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    the 5400RPM 300GB drive in my siblings laptop is slower than our internet

    it refuses to let anything go past about 3MB/s (on direct connection just to make sure it's not a wifi problem)

    i have a 6MB/s download speed (i've seen it get to 7MB/s on my other pc which is connected directly though)

    they also use up the space a lot

    i do believe it's time for an HDD upgrade

    I've gotten to 4.4 on the stock cooler, but i wouldn't recommend it. It starts running insanely hot then.

    Tried a file copy on drive itself? I highly doubt the hard drive only writes at 3mb/sec when I achieved higher on a 3200rpm IDE drive.

    Perhaps a defrag might help a bit

    Well, I mean like... They are built better than your standard run of the mill Chevy. But, yea, they are a Chevy, unfortunately.

    Please stop trying to kill me. This math kid must be destroyed.

    ran sequential testing on crystaldiskmark:

    78848d6df1.jpg

    in that case i have no idea why the hdd just plain out refuses to download any faster than 3MB/s (well, on steam anyway, didn't test anywhere else, it'll constantly "Busy: writing to disk" at faster speeds on steam, so i assumed the hdd just couldn't deal with the faster speeds)


    anyway, i also ran beamng (hence the steam download) to see what kind of performance it's measly AMD e-300 and radeon hd 6310 got:

    Pigeon: 14 fps (cpu limited, actually, VERY cpu limited)
