  1. I'm hoping no one considers this post as advertising. That is the last thing I want it viewed as.

    I am searching for a hair shop that specializes in wet hair looks. Something along the likes of Truth, but with a wet look option. Dry look not needed. I'm hoping to do a photo session, but need that wet look.

    Any suggestions?

    most dj programs have this build in, no need to adjust everything manually. And if you use legal obtained music by the official distribution channels it's sometimes even already done.

    I beg to differ on the legal distribution levels.

    I've processed music from CD's that clipped both top and bottom waves. As for 'manually adjusting' levels, I don't mind doing that at all. It gives me hands on experience using Audacity. Eye balling the audio levels to a reasonably good level gives me comfort that the dB levels are consistent.

    Granted, everyone has their styles of editing. I am not saying you are wrong and I'm right. Whatever edit program one is happy with, so be it. Consistent levels is part of the remedy to being a good DJ on SL.

    Findom?

    I didn't know domination by Finnish nationals was a fetish.

    Go Finland! Ya'll just got your own sexuality.

     

    The capital of Finland is Helsinki. There's a lot of history in that town. Who am I fooling?..there's a lot of history in the whole country.

    The key to a proper segue is note for note, key for key and beat for beat. Two of three choices would work well.

    You don't want to come out of a slow song into one that spins the head or out of a song that has a 7/4 count in to something really slow (few exceptions). It would be like hitting the brakes on your car from 70 mph cruise control to a school zone limit. Work from one end and climb, or descend. Experiment with songs of your choice and see what I am saying.

    What Schatzi says.

    I must add that you should get a good reliable audio edit system, Audacity is good. Make sure your audio levels match or are within reasonable range. Audacity will allow you to adjust dB levels, then export back into your music library. Nothing ruins a good listen but when the songs are too loud (clipping the top and bottoms, sounding distorted) or too soft (the listener has to turn their volume up to hear the song).

    Just a suggestion.

     

  5. When I started, I never used these hubs for help.

    I would wander and just ask questions to those I met on how to do this or that. Those that I asked were kind enough to walk me through the steps. Never had anyone give me grief. Granted, SL does have a sharp learning curve and for the most part, newbies will have a difficult time learning some basics. If a newbie reads this post, I suggest they make friends and ask questions, inworld or here in the forum.

    Sincere responses will go a long way in your travels across the grid. In time, you'll be able to help others.

  6. It's a safe bet this question has been asked before but has anyone done a demographic research of SL in recent years and what were the results?

    I recall about 5-6 years ago, someone posted a demo sheet that showed a surprising high use of SL by those between 45-60 years of age. I was suspecting a much lower number and higher for ages between 18-30 years of age.

  7. I went full premium and changed my name. I felt in the long run, the investment was worth the $99.00 + $40.00.

    Compare it to tearing the bandage off a skinned knee. It hurts at first but the pain goes away and the birds are singing and the clouds are fluffy white. Frankly, if LL ever offers name change to non-premium members, the price could be higher than $40.00 but will give them a chance to remedy any original name they chose and started disliking.

    "Mileage will vary" on others opinion.
