0.9.8 (Apr 8, 2009)
Best PDF printer out there. I recommend it to everyone.
I had the same issue, but found out PDFCreator isn't the one generating that stamp. You need to disable time/date/url printing within the browser itself.

I've been using Songbird since early beta releases, and am blown away how it has progressed. Right about version .9 it was better than iTunes in nearly every way except it seemed just about as slow and bloated. Now with the last two releases it has pulled ahead in performance. My only gripe is the lack of CD ripping built in....or maybe I just haven't found that feature yet.

Foxit has been the best PDF reader for me for some time, but now that they fixed the bookmark window issue, it's even better. For a good laugh, read this review of Adobe 9:
0.9.3.0 (Jul 31, 2008)
For those who want a simple, reliable money manager without the bells, whistles and bloat of MS Money, MMEX rocks. Cross-platform and open source too. Strongly recommended.

Yes I know what you're saying, but overdubs, separate takes and orchestras still are the actual performance of a musician. Reverb, compression and other effects don't fundamentally improve the performance of a singer. Intonation has always been part of the skill of a good singer, but with autotune and vocoders you can be a half step away from the right note and have it 'fixed' by a computer. I also don't like time-aligning or quantized drum parts (which are in nearly every recording by a major label now), but that's a discussion for another day. Call me old-fashioned, but I'm positive if people knew what is fixed in the studio they would lose a ton of respect for a lot of the music they listen to.

I really hope the end of Auto-Tune is near, but like you said, not enough people know they're hearing it. They just think that Rascal Flatts is that good of a singer. I experienced the same thing you did in the studio with a band. Once I heard my voice with and without Auto-Tune I can hear it a mile away, even if subtly used. I want human flaws back in music. It sounds more rich. Otherwise, I want a sticker on every AT'd record stating "actual vocals may vary".

The format they're talking about in the article is the lossless version of Windows Media Format, supposedly a perfect copy of the original CD. I was just making the point that if there is no DRM you could convert to whatever format you like - for all the Windows Media haters.

Since it's DRM free, couldn't you just convert it to a lossless open format like FLAC? I honestly can't decipher the difference in quality between the lossless formats - but maybe you have better ears than most.
