Re: Spider Pro Install

Clifton Davis
 

Thank you to Sergio and Graham. I will try the portable version.  

In the meantime, I tried out LLMS  downloaded from https://lmms.io/download#windows with a manual at https://lmms.io/wiki/index.php?title=Manual . It seems to be a free low level DAW but it is dead easy to set up to play midi with the Timbres of Heaven soundfont by once setting it up once with Edit/Settings/Paths (Folder Icon)/Default Soundfont File.  After that it's just a matter of pulling the midi in with File/Import and playing it.  To my ear it doesn't produce quite the same sound as Spider Player, but close enough for now.  I'm keeping LLMS in mind as an option if I want to teach someone to start to write music.

Before loading up my usual DAW, on the laptop, I want to get CoolSoft working.  Unfortunately, Norton and Microsoft have decided they don't trust the dll that the latest version tries to install and dump it. I was able to get Norton to exclude Coolsoft, but Micro$#!+ security software is deleting the dll as fast as the install program sticks it out there. On my desktop computer, which is also Windows 10 and running the same Norton security, Coolsoft gets disabled every time I reboot, but I reinstall it and I'm good to go. I just keep the install file on the desktop. But that's an older version of Coolsoft.  I may try to copy the install of the older version over to the laptop and see how that works.  

Nothing can be easy.

Hi, Clifton.

Sorry, my mistake. I answered without a test.

Better use the portable version as GrahamT said.

I tried to use Majorgeeks's software with the same problem.

If you ckeck any of the 3 options AAC plugin, Ac3 plugin and Simple Midi font, the software try to download from the inexistent site.

What i did here. I extracted the portable version as indicated by GrahamT in a folder. At first, the program was not recognizing my output sound hardware. I choosed it from the list in "Sound" Option.  To play mid and kar I used a .sf2 soundfont file, putting it in the plugin directory and choose this soundfont file in the the same "Sound" Option.

Now everything it's ok.

(2 song links in this email) (1/24/2020) Can You Guess This Song And Artist(s)

Gary Rogers
 

!!!Please do not reply to this email. Submit your answer

to the my email address garyrog1946@... !!!

 

Can You Guess This Song And Artist(s)?

I think most of us have heard a song on the radio that we know, but can't remember the title or artist who recorded it. These

songs usually drive me crazy until I remember what it is and who recorded it. I'm not trying to drive you crazy with this posting.

I'm just trying to let everyone have a little fun with it. I can't offer any prizes for properly guessing it, but you can have the

distinction of being the first one to guess it correctly. I am looking for the title of the song and who originally recorded it.

The song won't sound exactly like it was recorded, but hopefully it is close enough to be recognized.

 

There are 2 “Guess This Song” links in this email. I am combining both weekly

games into one email post per a suggestion by one of our players.

 

You may not need any hints today but here is one.

This week’s hint is:

Last week’s game was harder for a few of our players so this week will be much easier.

Both songs are by the same artist commonly referred to as “The King”.

If you need a hint, ask for one and I’ll send it to you.

 

!!!Please do not reply to this email. Submit your answer

to the my email address garyrog1946@... !!!

 

There will be 2 songs in this game today.

Feel free to play both of them, if you want.

 

Below are the links to “Guess This Song”. !!!Please do not reply to this email. Submit your answer

to the my email address at the website!!!

 

I will keep this open until Wednesday morning, 08:00 AM US Central Time, so everyone who wants to respond

will have the opportunity to respond. I will post the results later Friday  morning.

  

Please click the link below to hear this week’s songs and submit your response at the website:

Song #1: 

http://www.garyrog.50megs.com/guess_this_song.html

 

Song #2:

http://www.garyrog.50megs.com/guess_this_song2.html

 

I will post all correct answers in the order I receive them according to their timestamp.

 

Good luck and have fun!!!!

Re: Spider Pro Install

You might find that the old program is "phoning home" to download a file but the domain has long been released and now someone else has taken it rather than the original developer.

I found a portable version of the download (which should come with all the neccessary files built in) here: Spider Player Pro - The Portable Freeware Collection

All the best

Re: Spider Pro Install

Hi Clif

I found this message from the developer of Spider Player Pro:

Spider Player is no longer being developed. You can still download and use it, though. Please use the following license key to unlock all the PRO features: 27U3Z909I95-KK147A893S4K6Y1M0F-780363812. Spider Player PRO is completely free now, never mind the EULA.

I apologize for any undelivered promises I made and wish to thank everyone who supported me along the way. Thank you very much guys! It was fun at some point, but the feeling that this project is holding me back is now overwhelming.

If you've recently purchased Spider Player PRO and want a refund, please let me know here.
Best regards,
Vitaly Kravchenko

I also found these instructions for activating Spider Player Pro online I hope they help.
