A Tale of Mild Misfortunes

So, interesting things happened in the process of trying to get Cubase.

First, when I was just starting to try to actually buy it, after much indecision, when I entered all the payment data, the payment failed. I tried again. Once again, failed. Noticing only later that the item, specifically the upgrade from Sequel 2, said it was out of stock, I decided to wait until it came back into stock. So I waited.

For several weeks.

Eventually, I gave up and tried to buy the full version. Once again, the payment failed. When I called the credit card company, they said they didn’t know why it failed, payment had been canceled from Steinberg’s end. When I contacted Steinberg support, they, when they finally got back to me, said it was denied by the credit card company.

Now, by this point I had upgraded my computer to windows 8, because Vista doesn’t support Cubase 7. In the process, it somehow uninstalled everything on my computer. By the time I had finished with all that nonsense, the upgrade was back in stock. I realized at this point that I didn’t know where the activation code for Sequel 2 was, and wasted an entire day looking for it.

So I ended up having to buy the full version anyway. I tried using a different credit card, and lo and behold, it worked! It shipped, and was supposed to arrive yesterday. Operating word here is ‘supposed to.’ 

It didn’t.

Weirdest thing is, UPS swears it shipped. Says it was left by my front door at 5:27 yesterday. I was home then, and the UPS truck didn’t even go by. I called around to neighbors. Nothing.

It’s just vanished.

You can’t file a lost package claim until 24 hours later, so I’m going to wait 7 minutes and hope it arrives before then. If not, I’ll have to wait for UPS to do it’s ‘lost packages search protocol.’

The powers that be seem dead set against me getting this DAW.

Cubase 7

Now that I have my computer back up, I will soon be upgrading to Cubase 7 (once they get that it back in stock,) so I won’t be working on music for a bit.

Computer’s down… So random trivia!

My main computer is currently experiencing problems, so I can’t really work on music right now.

Instead, have this random fact; ‘Hard Vacuum’ was originally called ‘AOE,’ which stands for ‘Area Of Effect.’

A preview of some of the music that’s coming in DATUM. I spent more time working on this song than I think any to date.

An alternate DATUM album art; ultragritty. Unfortunately, I can’t show all it’s 2000×2000 glory here, because the file is huge.

The list

I like to maintain a list of song names I want to write. It’s something fun to do when not writing music. Thought I’d share what it is at the moment.

Ad Hominem
Hard Vaccuum*
Game Over
Track Zero
Where credit’s Due
Decibel (possibly just ‘Db.’)
Call to Arms
Faux Pas (alternitively, ‘Je ne Sais Quoi’)
‘We Will Fight’ (churchill)*

*currently a work in progress
