I'm not sure what you mean by stable :) As for actually crashing I almost never have it do that, and if I do, I fix it quickly. Other people do report it crashing so maybe I have just learned to unconsciously walk around dangerous situations. I think it is stable enough to make complete tracks in. It is probably not yet stable enough for live work. It also depends greatly on which machines you use. If you use only time tested stuff you are unlikely to run in to any problems. Also the file format is xml based and everytime you save a backup is made. So even if the file gets corrupted it can be restored either by restoring from backup or editting the xml back to sanity. I think Neils main advantage is that you get a lot of working synthesizers and effects. So it is more or less an all inclusive deal. In fact being able to instantly use it to make complicated music without installing anything else is a design goal (even though it is probably contrary to UNIX philosophy).

Hi,

These pieces are great! Thanks for demonstrating the capabilities of Neil - a program I have long been interested in checking out, but haven't yet got around to. (I am, as you suggest, an electronic musician making music purely with my computer.)

I currently use Renoise, which I think is a great tracker, but I feel it lacks one thing which I would love to have: a more flexible (modular?) approach to signal routing. For that reason, I'm interested in trying out Buzz-like trackers. I spent some time using Buzztard, but unfortunately I eventually came to feel that it hasn't yet reached a sufficient level of stability for serious work. May I ask how stable Neil currently is? I'll certainly consider giving it a try at some point, in any case.

Cheers,
J

I compiled a little list of music people composed using Neil


As you can see, Neil can be of good use to people who make electronic music using the computer alone. Enjoy the tracks and if you are in to that kind of thing musically check Neil out.

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't care much where--" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
