Some of you might have noticed that my forum name has changed and I think I'd better explain a little bit about it.

Later this month I will start on a 2 year 'real life experience' as part of my transition from male to female. A little after this I hope to be referred to a 'gender identity clinic' and to eventually undergo surgery in about 3 years time. I'm what some people call a m2f transgender and I'm diagnosed by the medical profession as having 'gender dysphoria'. (I actually don't like the diagnosis as it infers that I have a mental health issue but the diagnosis is required to be referred to the GIC.) According to the medics I have had GD since very early childhood.

All of my family and close friends know and are generally supportive - my sister's boyfirend is an exception, he wants to help me to visit a hospital. As part of my preparation for referral I'm now changing all of my social media stuff (facebook, forum names all of htat) to my new status and legally changing my name by deed poll and statutory declaration so that I can change my driving license, passport, bank details and so on. There's a whole lot of paperwork that I'm presently wading through!

If anyone has any questions about my transition do ask and I'll try and answer. If anyone is upset, annoyed or disgusted by my transition all I can say is sorry and that this is something that I must do.

Before I forget - my chosen name is pronouned 'Seer Sha'. It's an Irish name from just after the 1916 Easter Uprising in Ireland and it means 'freedom' and 'liberty'.

This video is just in from NAMM via SoS:

May be worth a look for anyone interested in midi guitar - whether that's Pat Metheny and a Roland or Alan Holdsworth and a Synthax

This should be of interest to those of you who upload their songs to itunes, cdbaby and all the other digital aggregators and distributors...

You should always have an ISRC embedded in to your music as it uniquely identifies your track, album and links it to the appropriate record label and is the only way that you can be ensured to receive any broadcast rights. ISRCs are routinely embedded in to redbook PMCDS but not those meant only fr digital distribution. Until very recently if you uploaded material to a digital aggregator you would have to either inform them of any ISRCs or send them a physical redbook PMCD and hope that they would apply them properly. One large aggregator was found to have ignored 1000s of ISRCs from small labels and individuals choosing instead to apply it's own code.

Earlier this year the European Broadcast Union agreed the outline for a new standard for broadcast Wavs, which includes a requirement for embedded ISRCs. In line with this forecoming standard a few daw manufacturers who specialise in post production and mastering daws have sarted to code this in to their suites. Prism who make the mastering daw that we use, have just announced that the forethcoming update will include this functionality along with the ability to produce gapless tracks and accurate fades for non-redbook PMCD broadcast Wavs. We've been busy beta testing the pre-release candidate and are now happy to announce that we can check, confirm, read, write and edit ISRC on broadcast WAVs meant only for digital distribution. We are one of only a very small number of mastering studios that can do this at present.
