Well, this isnt GIMP related, but you could download the trial version of Paint Shop Pro, from JASC software (good for 60 days, I think).
They have an AWESOME collection of pre-made planets in the “Paint Tube” tools. (I think they are listed as “marbles” but, they look JUST like planets!)
I am a Mac user, and usually I use photoshop… but,…[Read more]

My 2-cents here, which I feel I must always bring up when we talk of microphones (and I think Lowweek will agree…)
The Sony ECM-MS907 is a GREAT stereo mic that has a mini-jack, so you can plug it into a soundcard without special cables or pre-amps. You can find these on ebay for about $70 u.s.d.
I use mine with a minidisc recorder to…[Read more]

Uh, you’d better look into this a bit more before you buy.…[Read more]
hacking a perl-cgi guestbook is about the easiest thing in the world to do. Hell, even O’reilly’s “Learning Perl” book tells you a couple easy ways how it can be done… (then they of course tell you how to write the program to minimize risks…)
Guestbooks are very risky for your website. That’s why i took mine off my site.
Blunt, sorry to…[Read more]

Sony ECC-MS 907: Awesome mic. Can be found new for about $75 on ebay.
If you are new to mic’s and recording, here are a few tips.
* LOCATION: of the mic to the sound you are recording. This can have a huge impact on sound, especially how much bass a sound has. Closer is usually better, but not always. Experiment
* PREAMP…[Read more]
The sony 907 does a good job recording live bands using a minidisc recorder.
I recorded our band at a gig last week. ( NOTE: this recording mix sounds crappy because the mix in the room was bad, and I could have put the mic in a better location)
HERE is an MP3 from the gig.
recording a drum kit though?… well, recording good drums is one…[Read more]
they are both great mics.
the 58 is more for live vocals, the sm 57 is more a general recording mic.
the difference in sound between them is so tiny… but i do notice it. i personally prefer the sound of the 57 over the 58 for almost everything… including vocals. (at least for my voice) i own 2 sm57’s and 1 sm58.
i’d go for the 57… plus…[Read more]
Funny you should mention it. I put one one my website a couple weeks ago.
My “Mac Animators Resource Page”.
SoundSoap from Bias software is a VST plugin for mac and windows.
this software can ALMOST work miracles for cleaning noise. i bought it a month ago and i love it.
but, if the original recording is REAL bad, follow the advice above and re-record it in quieter environment.
