Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Despite the extra costs and anxiety that mortgage industry professionals say come with compliance due to heightened regulation, a recent survey revealed that a majority of them would not be willing to pay for relief – a result that a survey analyst found “shocking.”On the Voice of Housing blog published by the Collingwood Group on Tuesday, analyst Margaret Mooney examined the results of the recent survey conducted by the Collingwood Group in conjunction with the Five Star Institute. Despite the fact that 89 percent of the mortgage industry professional surveyed by the Collingwood Group last September said regulations were hurting their business, 76 percent of respondents in the question posed in March’s Mortgage Industry Outlook Report said they would be willing to pay up to 25 basis points when asked how much they would pay “to be relieved of all liability for future buybacks, indemnifications and/or lawsuits” – but in reality, they would pay only five to 10 basis points.”They argued that this is a reasonable range because it is what the majority of originators currently retain for repurchase reserves,” Mooney wrote. “Some indicated that it depends on the loans in question and the severity of the indemnification agreements and/ or lawsuits.”Twenty-four percent of those surveyed said they would pay up to 50 basis points for relief from liability, while 1 percent indicated they would pay up to 75 basis points. Seven percent said they would pay up to 100 basis points, and just 1 percent said they would pay more than 100 basis points. Mooney said the results of the survey were “shocking” when considering last September’s survey results.”Given the results from previous surveys where respondents indicated that the risk of buybacks, indemnifications and lawsuits were a major concern, we expected respondents to be willing to pay more for peace of mind,” Mooney wrote.(Editor’s Note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Analyst: Majority of Mortgage Professionals Unwilling to Pay for Liability Relief Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Sign up for DS News Daily last_img read more

Why Fender’s Apple-Compatible Guitar Is Brilliant

first_imgFender announced Monday that it is releasing a Squier Stratocaster with a mini-USB output. That’s an electric guitar, for those of you not into that sort of thing. Whether you realize it or not, this is a huge tech story. An entry level model of the most iconic guitar in the world can now plug straight into a PC or iOS device. That opens the world of recorded music to millions of people. 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… You don’t even need an amplifier now. It even comes with a mini-USB to 30-pin connector for plugging into an iOS device. The latest generation of iOS devices have a different port, of course, but a Lightning cable would do the trick.As someone who wants the embarrassing era of robotic pop music to die in a fire, I’m overjoyed to see Fender building a real instrument that’s this easy for the next generation to use. There’s no hiding the soul of a real guitar, and I hope this starts a tidal wave of new, human-controlled instruments for the digital era. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#Apple#Fender#music The Mac has already lowered the barrier to entry for aspiring musicians almost to the floor by pioneering the beginner-friendly recording application, GarageBand. PC users have options as well. And with the release of GarageBand for iOS, the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch have also become recording studios for the people. But there was still one hurdle Apple couldn’t do much about: It’s hard to get the signal from your instrument to the computer.There are two options for getting a guitar signal into a computer. You can either mic an amplifier, which takes expensive equipment and lots of experience to get a good sound, or you can use a USB interface. These vary widely in quality, and they’re often goofy to set up with your system’s audio settings. These obstacles can mean the difference between really making music and just dreaming about doing it.By releasing a Strat with USB connectivity, Fender has blown away the last obstacle. Once you have the guitar, which is available directly from Apple for $199.95, you can plug it straight into your computer and play. But it’s also a fully functional Strat you can play through an amp.center_img jon mitchell 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more
