1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Hi,
    I´m a big fan of remixes
    I´m a big fan of contest
    but I hate this system with the 'f' :thumbsdown:

    due to not being a member of this "social" network, I can´t take part at this great Sketches-Remix-Contest:
    https://metapop.com/pages/promos/sketches-2?p=1

    :(


    isn´t there a legal way to get this going? f.e. over the forum here?

    They buy out any platform that comes close to their popularity, Instagram, boomerang, etc... in the rare case other Social Networks don't take the money they just copy the features like they did to Snapchat... Quite smart company in that regard, they certainly didn't make the mistakes that MySpace did... Ahh the good old MySpace days when social networks were actually interesting.

    It was interesting because it was new.
    Not any different than FB actually.

    My general opinion:
    Do not restrict anything in "social networks" in any kind.
    Or do it, and we (some people) are out.
    Simple.

    Not only because it was new, it combined normal social networks with artist profiles a lot better, you didn't need to pay "post promotion" for the people who follow you to actually see your content like facebook does. The engagement was so much higher its crazy, almost like a combination of SoundCloud + Facebook.

    Yes Myspace gave the community the ability to be themselves, design and create some interesting pages and overall be artistic. FB is a piece of stagnant uniform crap. Which is why the young nation says FB is for Old People and Really Truly, I agree wholeheartedly...LOL

    Oh and it actually made people want to learn to code their pages too.

    if a contest is about getting like, the winner will be the biggest cheater.

    last fb contest from NI, every top ranked were heavily cheating, buying like from all those border line website where you can get 1000 indians posting a like and a comment for 5$, i thank NI would disqualify the cheaters but no the one who cheated the most won a komplete.

    Luckily contests on MetaPop aren't about getting the most likes. We have people who actually listen to all the submissions :thumbsup:

    thanks Mick @ NI
    due to other "free things" from other companys, this "or sign up" needed the data people use at "f".
    found out by typing in my data and then error "no f-profile..."
    if you made it here the right way, than sorry for the topic ;)
