Yeah, thanks ...
But we ment something personal and entertaining/informativ about you.
I've seen your gear list in your profile. Nice one, btw.
:-)

I am just a bit curious why you use active [[url=http://[/URL]="http://www.dynaudioacoustics.com/"]Dynaudio[/]="http://www.dynaudioacoustics.com/"]Dynaudio[/] Acoustics BM6 monitors for 7oo Euro a piece when
you also own a Bryston 4B-SST Stereo amp for 3.500 Euro. Do you have another pair of monitors that
will fit better to your 2 grand velodyne subwoofer?

I mean a pair of BM6s have a hard time to do justice to the 7.000 Euro Weiss DS1-MK3 and 4.000 Euro Manley VariMu, etc...

No offense, but this gear list reads so nice... and still.. like a slightly uncoordinated wishlist for Xmas.

:smile:

bigtree Sun, 04/03/2011 - 10:04

Yes, you've got some nice gear there, love to have a few of what you have but Big-K has a big point. I own a pair of [[url=http://[/URL]="http://www.dynaudioacoustics.com/"]Dynaudio[/]="http://www.dynaudioacoustics.com/"]Dynaudio[/] Acoustics BM6 ( love them!) but I wouldn't even consider assuming I could hear the stuff needed to call myself a professional ME?

Quality recording yes, Mastering ?
Please share how you are able to do this?

I did not think we were able to post advertisements on this web board but I guess that has changed. So what is the "new" policy on posting adverts???? Thanks.

At this point I don't think he is advertising :rolleyes:

Big K Mon, 04/04/2011 - 07:44

LOL...
I think, it was ment as a kind of advertising, but I doubt he did himself a favour nor will he gain much business out of it.
Copying a gear list of a commercial Mastering Studio,...How bad can it get??... rather stupid...
I had hoped to get back a reply from him, but I fear there will be no response comming from him, anymore.

 
Smart Arsch...

Without Prejudice

To note: This OP is from Tel Aviv where the other guy shilling futureproducers was from the USA.

There seems to be more of this coming/shilling/trolling (intentionally or innocently) link dropping from futureproducers.com site. Same company that bought homerecording.com that is all owed by audiofanzine.com out of France . They appear to be populating futureproducers.com site with the HR database and possibly others they have bought to suggest busy, all to , I'm guessing, give the main site more reach and global traffic.
I noticed our rss feeds appearing on the front page (like you all were posting there) last year and I put a stop to it fast! We were loosing rank and they were gaining from our content. ( I contacted Google) .My guess , wild guess Without Prejudice is they are trying to take out GS slow and steady but that's just a hunch. They must have deep pockets, I know they are web savvy with a staff that can code. GS is due to crash sooner than later. Its reached its time on software support and future exploits are inevitable. Its a train wreck coming. PSW is showing its end and this company is rising (good or bad).
It may be exciting to see it all go down but not at our expense by looking like the trigger happy K Foster if you get my drift.

Yesterday we got 4 of these posted and finally after a few threads by the OP the link to futureproducers.com got posted. I exposed this person but it was deleted before it did any good and updated you all on what was evolving in it.

The troll will then go around bad mouthing us (which is happening now) and we have no proof they are shilling and trolling. The new members the site is attracting via google searches pointing there have no idea they are being lured this way, its very clever.
So, we need to deal with this on a higher level if it continues. Audiofanzine is on a slow and steady mission and we don't want to start looking like K F around here again >).
GOAL: It would be awesome to get the cream out of all this when it all goes down. This is a good start to a new song.

Again, Without Prejudice

I hate list-lifters. I mean I really hate them... I personally hope for a special level in Hell after a life of shame and public ridicule on such people.

Not sure what all this means from future producers but...go for it!

It appears they just changed the site. That explained the troll here yesterday.
