Komplete Start

Audio plug-in creator Native Instruments has just announced the release of Komplete Start in February. It’s an introductory suite of audio apps / plug-ins and will cost nothing, yes… completely free. Well, free except for your email details, as you will need an NI account to qualify for registration and download.

I’m unsure as to whether Komplete Start will replace the current set of free ‘players’ and free content but this has to be the must-have DAW add-on for 2019. I shall certainly be  registering.


Completely unrelated, I have to mention that it’s taken me three whole days to seal the cistern leaks from a relatively simple siphon change. And there’s a possible big music event (as far as I’m concerned) in September but more about that some time in the future (hopefully).


Sinners Scanning & Archiving

I’m anxious to ditch some of the clutter that physically crowds my life. I’ve been digging through lots of old negatives and scanning them at a higher resolution than ever before ( 24 bit colour, 1200 dpi) and I’ve found some fabulous old band photographs. I’ll post some over the next few days. Expect quite a few “Born Sinners” pictures. Great one of Rob David praying in his bass drum 🙂

For now, a place holder:
