Scott R. Garrigus' DigiFreq(TM) - Updates and ShopLinks
ISSN: 1531-6505; Issue 29
Music technology downloads, news, articles, reviews, tips and tutorials for home recording and professional musicians. Over 19,000 readers can't be wrong!

SPONSORED BY: Sound Forge 8 Power! - The Official Guide
With step-by-step examples and exercises, and thorough explanations, Sound Forge 8 Power! digs deep into the software rather than just describing the features and how they work. Whether you're a Sound Forge 8 (also good for Sound Forge 7) or Sound Forge Audio Studio user, this accessible guide will give you a thorough understanding of the software that you can put to use right away. You'll cover everything from the basics to advanced functions such as writing scripts to automate the processing in Sound Forge 8.

Scott's Notes - Updates and ShopLinks

Want to learn some cool, vocal recording microphone techniques? How about fixing the feel of your MIDI music? And even some electric and acoustic guitar recording techniques? We've got all that and much more for you in this issue. Tons of articles, news, forum discussions, and of course a huge list of free software downloads... woo hoo! And we've got a great new contest sponsored by iZotope!

THE DIGIFREQ FORUMS
In addition to all that, the new DigiFreq Forums are off to a great start. There are already over 1,700 posts! That's a lot of knowledge that you can use... so what are you waiting for? Be sure to visit the forums each day:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/discuss/

And I'll let you in on a little secret... for those of you who liked the old forum format better, we still have that available. It's called the New Topic List. Just go to the New Topic List page at the new forums and you'll see a list of all the latest posts since your last visit:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/discuss/active.asp

But remember, this won't work if you don't have an account, so get your free forum account now:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/discuss/policy.asp

CAN YOU HELP DIGIFREQ? YES!
Every once in a while a DigiFreq member will contact me asking if they can make a donation to help out for all the wonderful, free content that DigiFreq provides. As a professional publication, however, DigiFreq relies on advertising and other methods to generate revenue. But that doesn't mean we don't want your help!

Instead of donations, we have found a way you can help DigiFreq make a few extra bucks with NO COST to you. Our new ShopLinks page provides links to all your favorite online stores (this includes all kinds of stores - not just music stores). By using our special links, you help DigiFreq make a little extra money, but this doesn't change the prices you pay at those stores. Let me repeat... this does NOT COST you anything.

Just visit the ShopLinks page, click on a link to visit a store and do your shopping as you normally would. Some stores even provide special coupons, which you can use to get discount! Go to:
http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/shoplinks.asp

Be sure to visit the ShopLinks page every time you want to do some online shopping...

Thanks so much for your support! Enjoy the issue...
