    Baffled by the Samurai

    Can someone please tell me how Markleford has become a Samurai whereas most people are Senior Members, Moderators or (New) Members ? Is Samurai an accolade conferred only on people who write brilliant MIDI remapping plug-ins (thanks Markleford !) or can anyone become one ? Sorry to ask this here, but it's been baffling me and I couldn't see anywhere else to ask it .

    Re: Baffled by the Samurai

    It was an honorary title bestowed in a moment of whimsy by Papa Chalk, who runs the Northern Sound Source forums.

    A while back there was a particularly nasty battle in the general Sample Libraries Discussion forum in which both sides refused to capitulate. Armed with only my sardonic outlook and keen sense of human motivation, I stepped in and cut to the heart of the matter with a particularly insightful post that laid waste to both arguments of supposed world-shaking importance, exposing them as the completely subjective preferences that they actually were.

    Apparently my words tickled Papa Chalk, so I was "promoted".



    Of course that's not to say that I managed to pacify the clashing hordes forever! For wherever 3 or more people gather on a forum and are allowed impersonal anonymity of an alias and an audience, they'll manage to say the most inflammatory opinions possible!

    It's an endless battle, and even I get tired...

    (p.s- Glad you enjoy the plug-ins! I wish I had time/energy to release some more someday soon...)

    Thanks for the explanation, Markleford ! I resolve never to venture into the Sample Libraries Discussion forum after dark. All power to your scimitar, cutlass, light-sabre or whatever it is that samurai wield nowadays.
