Post by: Mar T. on September 04, 2016, 03:45:06
Wow this man explains all secrets in 45 seconds:

Well I think we can do much better. Just grab your iPhone or Samsung and record a songwriting tip or trick AND make sure to include some humour! There's only one constraint: the clip has to be 30 seconds or less...
Yes, I'll record a clip asap... I just like the idea to combine our hobbies and knowing each other. Who's in?

@MartiMedia:  you must realize that "too much compression" is an oxymoron, just as "too much beer" or "too few Ducth"  ;D ;D

OMG, DB! You are just way too funny ;D ;D ;D  I too had tears streaming down my face in laughter, but also in gratitude for that beautiful
gift you sent me ::heart::   "Karma to Canada" ;D ;D  You should patent that slogan  ::thumb:: You guys have such BIG HEARTS  ::heart::

Did you really down that whole bottle of beer in one go, or did you do some video editing? We should have an icon for that   ::Suzy:: ::Suzy::
