  7. Well done guys! I couldn't think of two more deserving winners... well, I could, but you'll do 😁 December's Cover Song Challenge is now on! Get jingling...
  8. 🎄 December Cover Song Challenge 🎄 As is tradition, we're doing something a bit different for December... so instead of composing to a photo, we're running a covers competition. Basically, choose a song or instrumental that you like and write your own version of it. You can be faithful to the original or completely ruin it get creative; the choice is yours. All of the usual rules apply with a few additional caveats: It doesn't have to be a Christmas song. You're welcome to submit anything recorded this year (not just from December), so there's no excuse for those of you in cover bands not to enter. Don't go lifting any samples from whatever song you intend to cover, as that will breach the usual terms and conditions leading to extreme punitive measures. This is the only time of year that bagpipes are allowed! But that still doesn't make them right. The deadline for entries is midnight on December 24th.
  9. All done lads! The voting thread is now up: The winner will choose a picture to launch the challenge again in 2020. Next month is our Cover Song Challenge, to which you're allowed to enter any cover song written or recorded during 2019 (and they don't have to be festive...).
  10. It's time to vote on November's Composition Challenge. As usual, please choose your top THREE favourites. The winner will choose a picture to kick-start the challenge in 2020. Next month's sees our traditionally festive Cover Song Challenge, to which all are welcome to contribute (any cover songs written or recorded during 2019 are allowed). More on that soon...

  23. Well done! Glad you found a workaround. I stopped updating the OS on my home Mac (a 2012 Mac Mini) some time ago, due the driver of my audio interface (an old Allen & Heath mixer) no longer being updated. I think a lot of "pro" studios seem to work on this basis too - i.e. once you have a stable platform, leave it the hell alone! 😉
