Week 167: Behold! Dual Mono Becomes Stereo!
 
Also, because the original tracks still exist in the Take Lanes, you can always get back to the original tracks.
 




Hey, that should also be an idiot-proof way for editing a big bunch of drum tracks, too. Combine them in take lanes, and then you can clip and slip and move them as much as you need --- and no fear of losing sync!
 
Never thought of that.

I Love the tips and I think Craig Anderton is a legend!! However, without trying to be nasty, I do find $20 or £15 for a PDF is a wee bit too pricey, when compared to the price of physical books on Sonar that are bound and also have full colour illustrations.
I think $8 would be a fair price and I think volume of sales would make up for the price drop :)

Don't worry, that doesn't come across as nasty but to be fair, the material was available free for over two years. It was announced in this thread that the old tips were going to be removed, updated for a book, and the thread rebooted, so people had time to save the tips while they were free. However, saving the tips took work and besides, most of the tips needed updating...nor were they categorized, and there was no table of contents. For many people it made more sense just to wait for the book.
 
The book is 311 pages. Only someone who has written, edited, assembled, laid out, and proofed a book of that length knows how much work it is. I do not receive anything for the book, it was done as a service to the people who enjoyed the Tip of the Week and wanted the tips updated to reflect the changes in SONAR, as well as to bring income to Cakewalk. I would not have done it if Cakewalk was only going to receive $8, there would have been no way to justify the time I put into it. Also note that it was introduced for $14.95, so "early adopters" could save $5.
 
It's interesting that people don't think twice about buying four Starbucks coffees that are consumed within minutes, but balk at paying the same amount for a book that can improve their music in the months and even years ahead...and it took a lot more time to create the book than the time it took a barista to create four coffees. I know the world has changed - intellectual property has been devalued, and there's an "information should be free" mentality. While that's a nice goal, the reality is that when a company has employees, you can't say "you should work for free because information should be free." That works up until someone has to buy groceries, pay rent, or put gas in the car 
 
This is why I used to write a lot of books, but don't any more. People would love for me to write a revised version of "Electronic Projects for Musicians" or "Home Recording for Musicians," but I can't afford to do it.
 
P.S. Also note you get a free magazine each month with more editorial content than many magazines that sell on newsstands.

As a cook for the last 12 years... i can REALLY relate to the point being made here. It's always surprising how people have no problem paying for certain things and then balk at others.

Many thanks for your reply, Craig. I'm pleased that you understood I wasn't trying to be horrible. 
I am sure the PDF document is full of great tips. 
My concern may be nothing more than snobbery on my part - buying PDFs as opposed to books, or their perceived value against "proper" e-books. So I fully accept that.
Plus, I'm more of a Costa Coffee guy, but your point remains just as valid! :)
Cheers

That's what people are saying

Bear in mind there are some definite advantages to PDFs. If it was a physical book, 311 pages would probably mean a price of at least $40, and trust me - you wouldn't want to pay for shipping! As to eBooks, there are major constraints because of all the different readers. You pretty much have to use Arial or Times New Roman, you can't do text flow - all images need to be inline - and you can't even do page numbers because of how pages are reformatted depending on the reader. Those aren't much of a problem if you're reading fiction like "50 Shades of Gain," but for technical books, they're an issue.

Actually that was a line Mats Nermark used in one of the "Hall E Crawl" NAMM videos for Harmony Central and it's made the rounds somewhat, so credit where credit is due

Once upon a time I was a programmer for a software company that created software for the real estate industry.
I remember speaking to a customer who raved how our software had made him thousands of dollars and then refused to pay $149 for a major upgrade.
 
I bought the PDF, glad I did.

Apologies if this is a big no-no, but I wanted to share a song I just finished where I used the Multiband Compression Tip from week #164.  I used the "Tuned Thunder" settings on the bounced audio from a MIDI'd part using Dim Pro's "Dull Bass 1" preset.  It really gave me a full, warm part that sits well in the mix and doesn't stick out in an obtrusive way.  I say this based on listening to it with headphones, in the car, and with decent studio monitors.  Laptop/phone/iPad speakers - not so much!  Anyway, I'd really encourage people to give this tip a try.
