All harware samplers suck IMHO.
I have had 3 and I think I switched each one on once.... Then sold em.

I have the midas touch in reverse with samplers! I lose money even thinking about em.......

Nightmare!

F**k em!

Exactly, Jules just nailed that one

We cut up all audio, after transferring it from midi(Drums and rytmically things) and place them one by one on the grid by hand. It is hard work but it sounds tight and musical. Midi is so slow, I hope PT midi timestamping will do the trick.

The old dfegad midi protocol.

Ummm, my new vacuum cleaner sucks...

Sync'ing a Yamahahaha EX5 (client's) yesterday sucked. Couldn't even use it as an expensive sound module. "Midi Data Error." Client thought it was something on my end, I was tearing up the studio trying to figure it out.

We called Yamahahaha and they are sending a new eprom. The bastards.

it all sucks

fake **** sucks. plug-ins suck, modelling amps suck, auto-anything sucks, samples suck.

(what the **** is so hard about plugging a mic into an amp and hanging a mic in front of it? )

guitars with 7 strings and bass guitars with 5 or more strings suck. big, complicated drum sets suck.

anyone who overplays sucks (hint for drummers: count to 4, stop, repeat. congratulations, you don't suck)

engineers who waste time with software trying to fix something that should have never made it on tape suck. put the time and effort into mic selection, placement and helfping the band come up with good arrangements that they are capable of playing well

non-modular consoles suck. non modular expensive consoles suck hugely

mouse mixing sucks so bad it's funny listening to anyone try to defend it.

the lack of very simple, uncomplicated, sturdily built and decent sound gear sucks. You shouldn't have to spend 2 or 3 grand for good outboard gear unless you want to.

small knobs suck; who are they designing this child size gear for?

bitching about **** sucks.....

DAMN! Ur attitude is almost as bad as mine!! I agree with you.

I will add this regarding basses and drums . . . . . . . 5 string, and more, basses (especially those with trendy burled wood and trendy names) do suck the BIG ONE . . . . as well as basses with active electronics!

Except for Stingrays!

Drum kits with over 2 toms bites elephant ass (It pisses me off that I have to buy 4 toms for my new studio kit so people won't whine) and kits with more then 3 cymbals chew Jerry Lee Lewis butt.

Damn GOOD attitude!!

People that act tough when they are really, whiney pusses that can't get by in life without moaning and groaning, so they make everyone around them miserable suck too! People that want to run as opposed to facing their own **** suck too!

Drummers with two of a simalar thing
Two floor toms
Two Chinas ??!???
Two snares???!!??
Two Hi hats

Also double kick pedals, used by people with no timing in one foot let alone two.

Sorry this is the setup from the weekend, where the drummer was more interested in what he hit then timing.

Rehersing a piece for a soundtrack the other night. The piece is in seven, the drummer keeps counting 1 2 3 4 in. Half the ensemble would start, the other half would wait for him to count to seven.

He is a great drummer, but for that, he sucked.


Vaporware SUCKS! Yea, it will be out as soon as this chip is released, should be a few months. A year later, still waiting. Well, we have this other model with a higher noise floor if you really want our product...

he he that was my old drummer he sat so far to the left (chest pointing at the hats), when he did go to the floor tom, he would have a litle break (moving his body around again) before he could move back to a beat...

Not understanding why a drummer would want to have more than one of the same instrument setup sucks. Worse yet, a drummer who overuses that setup sucks, especially if they overplay! IOW, octopus drumming is bull**** 85% of the time. That sucks. lol

Double kick pedals are no different than having two bass drums (sonic issues aside, which are pretty insignificant IMO). It's all about what the drummer does with it.

Making broad, general statements about drummers sucks. Drummers who suck related to those broad, general statements suck broadly, with girth and not vic firth!

lol this is fun

OK, y'all, back to the topic...

SACD sucks, fa real.

DSD mastering engineers are sheisters, and they suck by default.

96K sampling rates suck. Peeps who use 96K are suckers.

Prima donna engineers suck. I won't mention any names, but his initials are Mixerman.

Most if not all recording studios suck, and will soon be replaced by home-recording Svengalis such as Your's Truly.

Most studio engineers suck. The ones who don't, they know who they are. The ones who do were instantly insulted by that statement.

Mastering engineers suck by default: it's not their fault, because the whole concept of mastering engineering sucks.

Magnetic tape of any kind sucks, but I don't blame peeps who use it for that.

Radio compression REALLY sucks. We already compress our sh!t, so WTF??!!!

The imposed fragmentation of radio markets really sucks. At least the ****s and the Soviets were up-front about censorship.

A&R peeps suck the split-ends of my gonad hairs.

Marketing committees who impose their ill-concieved marketing research on art as if it were gospel, suck.

Independent promoters suck.

Entertainment attorneys...well, I don't want to offend mine, so I'll hold off on that note, but you get the picture.

This entire thread has been discovered to be the causation of the newest black hole in our galaxy - scientists have been perplexed for the past few weeks about the intense vortex created by this thread.


MY DMXR100's inability to address 48 channels of AES/EBU gets my vote - especially since the console is cool in most other ways.

Oh, except for the "change sample frequency/ reboot console" which is like a 3 month old kid on a tit.
