Fuck apple (beyond speedtrash)

By Chrisfoo on August 23, 2020 11:01 pm

Pretty pissed, I was really looking forward to spending some time working on some music since I haven't done anything music related in about 2 weeks.  My dad had some pretty sudden and serious health problems come up so I've been spending most of my time with the family. Apparently apple didnt want to me to have a therapeutic recording session today though.  I got a new macbook recently and transitioning all of my software/hardware to it has been less then successful. Literally every little thing has turned into an hour+ long troubleshooting session, which I think is mostly because of the newest OS (Catalina).  So enjoy the shit qwerty keyboard jam that I recorded in 10 min because I cant connect any of my studio gear or even a USB mouse/keyboard.

I thought the title was fortnite related. smile

I LOVE this big fuzzy bass and then the funny gargling line on top of is awesome. What is that thing? It's a really fun effect.

I hope everything goes fine with your father - good luck, this is never a fun time.

All the best to your father, man. Sorry to hear about the major headf**k with the new macbook, too. Keep at it though; your music is too good to let a laptop get in the way of it continuing.

Ah... I've been really enjoying your tunes the last couple months, I hope your new MacBook stops being prickly. And I really hope your dad is okay, I'm sorry to hear that.

This track sounds like a middle finger to Apple, that's reason enough to enjoy it tongue

Ugh, don't even get me started on Catalina. sad It put my favorite VST out of commission for weeks before I finally got it migrated and running again. Hope the process smoothens out eventually on your end.
In the meantime, nice track! That outro is just fantastic.

"Apparently apple didnt want to me to have a therapeutic recording session today though. " end of song spirals into chaos haha.  still a fun tune, happy you uploaded

sorry to hear your dads got some health problems going on, it's hard to get in the groove with that kind of weight on your mind.

Sorry to hear about the technical issues and especially about your dad.  That sort of thing is never fun to deal with.  Sending best wishes.  I really think you managed to spin at least a little bit of gold out of your 10 minutes though.  There are some cool sounds in here and it was fun to listen to.

I agree that Catalina is not easy, especially for non signed softwares, which occurs a lot for free plugins... I still like my little macbook air but I did get rid of multiple plugins since Catalina update.

Hope everything get sort out for both your father and your computer...

Catalina has so many security "features" that messed with my setup as well. Really sucks.
Nonetheless, we got some interesting sounds here!

Best wishes to your pops!

Sorry to hear about your Dad's health problems.  I hope he can recover soon and you get your mac up and running.  Yeah I've heard Catalina caused a lot of upgrade issues for software.  I know with a new laptop that's unavoidable but that's why I'm still on High Sierra.  I think you def got your feelings out tho especially with that chaotic outro.  Hope things get better for you and your family real soon!

This is why I don't use Apple. But even off PC, I have my Switch with Korg Gadget in case of the need for a therapeutic session.

Best of luck to your dad.

Sorry about your dad's health.  I'm wondering at the 1 minute mark if the noises isn't a metaphor for the shitstorm that was your week. Hmm.

August 30, 2020 10:20 pm

Duuude I totally know your pain. I've been transitioning to a new PC from a macbook over that last couple of weeks and it has taken SO many hours to get things going even without "Catalina problems". Hope you can get it sorted, and well done for still posting! Wishing your dad and family all the best.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad.  Sending super love and hugs to you and your family.

CPU transitions are SO painful.  My music computer is always offline and I was so scared recently to connect it to the internet to authorize a new software purchase.  Seems to be okay.  BUT once you get this all sorted out you will be GOLDEN.

I also agree with Anon_Buster, the 1:00 min mark is like foul language typed out on the keyboard.
