This wouldn't have happened with Gainsborough or one of those proper painters.

You Don't Appreciate What You Have Until You Go Poking Around The Filesystem Trying Things Out

I wanted to get Crimson, Blue and Fabulous - a compilation of blues brass loops - in the previous Sony Creative sale* but missed out.  Fortunately it popped up in their New Year's sale, and I snagged it this time.**  And it is good.

Since they had a selection of loop packs at $20 each, I got a few others as well, more-or-less on spec.  Browsing around now, I find I have dulcimer loops.  Over 150 dulcimer loops.  And zither loops.  I mean, mandolin, sure, got plenty of mandolin, but dulcimer?

And they actually sound really good.***

I also picked up Poser 7 on sale.  I have Daz Studio, which is free but not as powerful as Poser, and Carrara Pro, which is a lot more powerful than Poser but not as friendly.  Of course, I've hardly used either one.

And I grabbed a copy of Manga Studio too.  Now I have everything I need to produce terrible 3D CGI comics!

Update: Ijits.  All the missile sound effects are labeled "missle".  18 of them.  Perfectly consistent.

* That was a buy-one-premium-pack, get-two-standard-packs-free sale.  This was a selected-packs-at-half-price sale.  Worked out about the same, I think.

** List price $59.95, online price $39.95, download price $29.95, sale price $19.95.

*** I have 60 CDs and 1 DVD of Acid Loops that I've assembled since 2000.  There are now 115 "Standard Collection" disks (from $29.95 each), 23 "Classic Collection" disks (from $19.95 each), 17 Premium Collection packs (2 disks each, from $59.95), and a bunch of other stuff like a 10 CD $425 sound effects set.  I want them all.
