Mastered by a talented friend. You know who you are. :) :wink:



I love it, straight out of Silent Hill :twisted:
But the pair certainly monitor these discussions and while they don't take part in them, they do seem somewhat confounded by the kind of rumours that have got out.

Been working on lo-fi house, but I only use LMMS and it's difficult to do a lot of the things you could do with something like Ableton with its barebones features. I'm trying to learn to emulate the sounds lo-fi that producers on labels like Lobster Theremin are making, but without hardware, that's a little bit tough. The best techniques I've found to get that warped cassette sound are throwing limiters and saturators on top of everything and injecting fake tape hiss into the mix.

This track is the one I've put the most time into, I tried to go for Lone's Crush Mood but spacier

This track was the initial demo I did when I was experimenting with this sound, the actual melodic parts are undeveloped and annoying, but they serve as stand-ins for something I will eventually write.

Everytime I come here I get a tingle up my spin, like somehow this is like a breeding ground for the future of music. Something about the times, something about the place. Always exciting, you're all very talented.

Respect! I'm still itching to move over permanently, but there's some vital features still missing (like decent automation editing). Then again, creative limits are important. :D Zynaddsubfx alone might be worth it.

Thanks, I love certain things about LMMS (simplicity, mostly), but I'm starting to think LMMS is a bit too limiting. Certain things like oldschool breakbeat are nearly impossible in LMMS, I think Ableton has more of what I want at this point, very true that its automation system isn't great. Definitely love LMMS's simplicity and open source nature and Zyn is one of the best VSTs I've used to date.

I tried LMMS too and found it limiting. Its good for a free DAW but there are better options.

Says the super talented girl. 8)

With a common love for BoC here, it shows their ability to inspire. And you could very well be right about the "breeding ground for the future of music." I think of what Brian Eno said about Velvet Underground “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band” and think about BoC.
This isn't quite the same as that, but BoC especially, gave me such a strong personal desire to make music and I know I'm not alone with that. It seems to be for different reasons than usual, though. It's not "I wanna play guitar like that" or "write lyrics like that". It's the level of incredible art, like painting stunning images with sound waves that makes me say "I wanna make really good art with sound no matter the instruments used". The inspiration is for simply for creativity, and less specific, to me. I know a lot of my stuff currently goes in the direction of BoC's IDM, but I plan on making stuff that sounds like Alan Parsons Project - Wouldn't Wanna Be Like You, mixed with a lot of Devo's stuff, mixed with more psychedelia.

So I agree, this place is a great music source. So, so often I'm greeted with the same tingly feeling when listening to these talented folk here.

I like how the majority of stuff in this thread is NOT BoC clone stuff. A lot of us have been doing this long enough to get some style of our own. BoC is a great influence, but if you try to model your music off of them (or anyone for that matter), you will not get far. Originality, soul, creativity. That is where it's at.

New track, the first I've recorded in my new, but temporary, place of livin':
https://soundcloud.com/thai-bluejeans-s ... ingnothing

In my previous room, I had my drumset set -- but I can't do that any longer due to noise / spatial concerns.
I recorded the drum parts separately (pieces of set occupy only one track each in my DAW), which was a new experience.

Beautiful stuff. That's all by you? Saw the Rundgren hashtag didn't know if it was some kind of cover or something.

Thanks, dude!

Yes, that's all written and played by me -- I'm usually at a loss with what to put for tags ... I've been listening to 'A Wizard, A True Star' and 'Something/Anything?' a bunch lately, and've been feeling inspired by Rundgren ... I made the title 'Everything/Nothing?' as kind of a loose homage to 'Something/Anything?'.
