I saw a reasonably popular rock band in a smallish venue a few months back and the sound was atrocious. It was all bass and drums and I could barely hear the guitar, keyboards or vocals. This band in no way plays bass heavy music. Is the band or the venue at fault? [more inside]

The band uses Ableton Live for backing tracks (drummer uses a click track - metronome).
From the arrangement view (Live's VSTs are used also) is there a way to place video in a track and have it stream from a Macbook
while the audio streams to a soundcard?
If not, what is the easiest way to play videos in sync with the backing tracks? [more inside]

I'm a drummer in an indie-rock band with a 5-piece kit who is looking to expand my setup to include a drum sampling pad. I want something that has unique percussion sounds (not just cheesy electronic beats), built-in effects, plenty of storage space to upload my own samples, and the ability to record and loop live drumbeats. Any advice? [more inside]

I recently upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7. I'm trying to find and download gadgets for my desktop. When I go to the Windows Live page, I only see gadgets compatible with Vista. Why does Windows Live think I'm still running Vista?

I am using Windows 7, my Windows Live Mail acts fine until I have been on it a few minutes and then I cannot get it to send my Outbox mail and when I try to sync it I get error message "internet not connected" - if I disconnect from internet and reconnect my Outbox sends it then. How can I get it to stay connected or wake up to send and receive emails?

I'm trying to identify a Japanese noise artist who uses analog electronics (light bulbs, motors, record player based sequencer, etc.) to create really loud and grating music. [more inside]

Ableton Live for beginners: This weekend I'm going to have a couple of days where I get to play with someone's copy of Live, which looks like a very cool piece of software. I'm hoping to make the most of this chance but (a) the last time I made electronic music I programmed SID registers by hand in 6510 assembler in the 80s, and (b) don't know diddly about Live, oh yes, and (c) I don't know diddly about music, either. Is there a decent guide -- in print or online -- that would help me sit down in front of the thing and maybe plink out a couple of really awful songs? [more inside]

Long shot: Anyone know what site this was? It's an old musician, kinda kenny rogers looking, who used to be moderately big I think, but now has people play at his house and films it. It's kind of like La Blogotheque, but american. [more inside]
