Regarding why it didn't generate more interest here, i can only comment from my own perch. For what i do it didn't seem very relevant. My interest is all directed toward practice for live performance. Any recording i do is for the sake of informing myself of how i'm sounding and for that i really want either my acoustic sound or aspects of my live sound particularly around mic-craft. I can obtain that from playing in free air or just with a basic tube amp sound. I have good separation from neighbours, an easy going, encouraging spouse, and several little tube amps.
@SuperBee I appreciate where you're coming from, I'm no where near being able to use amps and peddles as I'm still learning. Instead of spending boat loads of cash on amps, peddles, mics etc that I'm no where near doing justice to. This is a great alternative just to mess around with, at the moment just for shits and giggles. All I need is a cheap coy of a sure 57 and a Beringer Audio Interface and shits and giggles begin.
I've experienced nothing but trouble with BlueDadi. I think it was a great bit of software at the time of its creation (2016), but that was four years ago. It's a lifetime, in terms of technology. The software is nearly unusable due to some outdated Java. I actually contacted John Shirley about this last week, and have yet to hear back. If I hear anything, I'll update. It's a shame! It seems like a good software, but I understand that he did this as a labor of love, so there's not much incentive for him to work on it.
Here's the essence of the problem, as I wrote it to John: "Whenever I load up a backing track, the track will import successfully and the waveform appears. As soon as I try to play it or record or manipulate the track in any way, it disappears (but keeps the first 2.0 seconds of audio). I am unable to reload the track or do anything with the DAW part of the program.
"I know that someone has brought this to your attention before, on the bluesharmonica.com forum, but it seems they never followed up with you about this. I suspect, like you, that it is a Java issue. I’ve downloaded the most current version of the Java Development Kit and adjusted the pathways appropriately, but the error remains. I’m running Windows 10, 64 bit. Could the problem be that I’ve downloaded the 64 bit version of JDK?"
