[QUOTE=Hakita;36095500]Now that jomt1234 brought the subject up, what should we do with the collab albums? I know that less and less people have been listening to them lately, but I say that even if we only had 1 listener it'd be worth it. So should we make another collab album?[/QUOTE] I would not say no, but the lack of interest is kind of daunting. I have some awesome album art designs in the making.

Nice :) [QUOTE=T.F.W.O.;36101589]I would not say no, but the lack of interest is kind of daunting. I have some awesome album art designs in the making.[/QUOTE] Lack of interest from listeners, producers or orginisers? I'd totally contribute a music Is bandcamp the only place that the collab albums go? If there's a lack of listeners, how about whipping up a quick 'facepunch' soundcloud profile and putting the album on there too. Random people will come accross it, giving it another window to get some interest. Facepunch soundcloud users could also favourite it if they so wished and so on. It would only require effort when an album is made, and not a lot of effort really. Well for all I know this has been done already
Any guitar gurus out there, I have a question: what kind of strings should I get if I want a deep thick sound similar to Meshuggah or Amon Amarth? [editline]31st May 2012[/editline] Actually, I want strings that are kinda in between Meshuggah sound and Pantera sound.
Strings don't "really" account to tone, not that much. Thick enough to handle tuning you are going to use. If you are aiming for that, I'd go with any non-special coated string set. Just make sure it's thick enough, .070 should be enough if tuning is between G and B standard. Those 3 bands have all pretty different tones. Large part of meshuggah's tone comes from bass, guitars have next to no bass and high-mids are cranked. Gain is lower then one would expect. Amon Amarath has standard Swedish Death Metal tone, basically hm-2 cranked ran through solid state amp. Pantera has hissy mid scooped guitar tone, I think Dimebag played solid state for most of his career. Dimebags tone is terrible in theory, but they made it work somehow. If you want between Meshuggah and Pantera sound, it would be pretty much standard metal tone, all knobs at noon, mids maybe [B]slightly [/B]scooped. In metal music, excluding the player, roughly 70% of tone comes from amp. Rest is the guitar and components itself.
For Bass, strings have an enormous impact on tone, especially when it comes to slap bass. Went to a show showcasing students from the college I used to go to. My old tutor was there... I ended up doing the sound. Was pretty fun, keeps you on your toes working on an unfamiliar system with unfamiliar bands in an room you don't know very well. Kept having to trace cables to find here stuff was patched.
Does anyone else name their project files weird things?
Everyone does that. Trust me man.
i have a cassette called Grandma Pussy Acid
Do you guys have any modular systems? I'm thinking of saving up and buying some DIY kits for some modules... It's going to be extremely painful buying each one, one by one
my friend has modular synth stuff and it sounds like sex but it's very limited in functionality.
You mean when it comes to FM and stuff?
no presets, usually no MIDI, sometimes it's hard to get your mind around the big patches
[QUOTE=thisispain;36152581]no presets, usually no MIDI, sometimes it's hard to get your mind around the big patches[/QUOTE] Keep a notebook for patches. I'm sure a MIDI module isn't too expensive.
[QUOTE=thisispain;36152214]i have a cassette called Grandma Pussy Acid[/QUOTE] These things only make sense to the creator.
[QUOTE=socks;35881200]Does anyone know how to make this synth? It seems kind of simple but I haven't had any luck. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGB-Uubr0Wc[/media] It starts at 0:35ish[/QUOTE] This is a little late but I made something that sounds just like it.

Posting for anyone that might be interested in Sytrus. Great way to get into FM synthesis, and of course, based on your preferences (if you even want to switch), once familiar, it's very easy to get into FM8 from there.

I would like to get into making electronic music, old school synth pop and industrial. Which program should I use and are there any tutorials? I'm a pianist so I know the music theory and that but I'm don't know anything about making "sounds/virtual instruments". I've only used FL Studio before.

I recommend you to read through the documentation even if it can be a little tedious and after that practice and experimentation goes a long way. The fact that you already know music theory will get you a nice head start.

Are there any vocalists on this forum that would perhaps like to collaborate? I got a few songs I think could work really well with vocals that are posted below :smile: [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/is-it-pop-1[/media] Genre : Pop Punk [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/gorbatjov-5[/media] Genre : Stoner-influenced Rock [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/khrustjov[/media] Genre : Raw Rock&Roll [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/04-prettosexuell-plocka-inte[/media] Genre : Rock&Roll [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/casey-kay-mftcl[/media] Genre : Oldschool metal (Genres may not be entirely accurate, the genres written are the closest genre I can think of however, and I'd like to think that I've developed a partly original style). :smile: If you are interested in collaborating with me and producing similar style of music posted above (I've also done some techno-inspired music where we maybe can work together in too? It will be posted later) then hit me up with a pm or write here in thread and just give it a go, I have not thought of any melodies or lyrics to either of the songs but just scream your heart out on whatever subject you want to tell a story about :smile: [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/casey-kay-satin-3[/media] (Combining happy melodies with dark and brooding rhytmhs) [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/finite-dopes[/media] (Combining slow drums with menacing melodies) [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/dark-ends[/media] (I don't know how to describe this one, except... bland I guess :smile:)
i want to start a shitty synth pop band and be a hipster and get rich
Anyone know any good ways of obtaining free drum samples?
Speaking of shitty synth pop, I just bought an Alesis Micron.
I just realized that I could make music in my sleep... If I slept on a piano.
I fuggin hate how soundcloud compresses my tracks.
