there's a bunch of poo poo i released in the tracker scene way back in the day that isn't listed there, but honestly it's not really worth a poo poo comparatively.

So yesterday I learned that Nobuo Uematsu composed on and directly sampled from a Roland SC88 Pro for Final Fantasy 7 and 8. Now I really want to get one or a software equivalent

sampled from? a roland sc88 is just a sample playback module, there's no synthesis going on there at all. uematsu recorded playback from that module for the soundtrack, and that's it.

the uws backlog is huge, i started listening at one point but got turned off by the "boring" house/techno sets that just weren't my taste back then. jonny's dnb set was pretty much the sole exception

might give it a shot again now that times are different and i really appreciate long dj sets without any mc talking over them

you should go through the archived sets and download a few of mine. they're all techno, but i have pretty eclectic taste in that kinda poo poo

ableton is insanely flexible but you have to pick a side. i never had any luck trying to hop between its more DAW-ish multitrack mode and clip view.

for what its worth ableton and its looper plugin is what i used for my live pa bass guitar project a while back. it worked v well for that

fwiw, my affinity for ableton is probably related to me coming up through the tracker scene and spending ages using buzz, which has a pretty similar method of arrangement.

however, ableton and an apc40 is THE poo poo, and has been my weapon of choice for a very long time. you write out the clips, then use the apc to jam out your arrangements. unfortunately, i don't think the apc is manufactured anymore, but its replacement is the push, which i don't have any firsthand experience with so i can't say anything good or bad about it other than the pictures i've seen of it have PRETTY LIGHTS

is there a benefit to proper weighted keys on a keyboard?

is it simply because it feels like a real piano? or does it literally make it easier or better to play?

in 99% of cases players like weighted keys because it makes the instrument feel more like a real piano. if i'm playing a gig where i'm not trying to rip sick synth solos or anything like that, weighted keys are nice. if i am trying to rip those sick synth solos, i prefer semi-weighted actions, because they're much faster. keep in mind, though, that an electronic keyboard even with a fully-weighted action is never going to feel 100% like a real acoustic piano simply because the mechanics of the actions are so different.

MrQueasy posted:

As a piano player who learned on acoustic pianos, the difference between weighted and unweighted keys is kindof like comparing mechanical keyboards to "regular" keyboards. Like they're both fine and useful in their own way... but if I want to go fast and hit a lot of notes correctly at the right... timbre... without having to look at your hands, I prefer the weighted keys. There's just something about unweighted keys that make me expend more brain power on controlling the keypresses...

personally, if i'm tryin to rip some fast licks, the un/semi-weighted keyboard is the go-to. those actions are so much faster, especially considering that so many of the fully-weighted electronic keyboard actions end up being hella mushy

apparently some service uploaded some of my old tracker-scene poo poo to youtube a while back, so i thought i'd share. this is a remix i did years ago of one of my own tracks primarily by taking the original, cutting it up into big chunks, and rearranging it into funky patterns. add some big drums and BOOM. the release date given in the the info on youtube is wildly incorrect, though - this was released on a 5-track ep i did on the chill productions netlabel back in 2004.

if you want to listen to the whole ep, the playlist for it is here: youtube.com/watch?v=J7fVc_drF6w&list=OLAK5uy_kKXswv6N5KNnXHXqulXI0NfRsI4aeT18o

i am extremely excited that the new dj mixer i bought for myself as a 40th birthday present is projected to ship tomorrow. if not tomorrow, soon. i cannot wait, because my old one has been dead for too long despite me having had it repaired by a Professional Repair Person a while back, and i have bought a metric shitton of records in the time that it's been out of commission. it'll be good to have my entire studio running at 100% again.

I knew it was something that started with R! I'll check out the demo, $80 is basically free when it comes to DAWs, drat

if you're looking for tracker-style production suites, and feel like you'd rather spend that $80 on beer, you could try buzz first: http://jeskola.net/buzz/

i produced shitloads of music with this software over the years. it takes some getting used to, as its interface is pretty different from any other production suite i've ever used, but once you "get it", it owns

pollyanna i bought a fat audio interface (8i6) so i wouldn't need a mixer and it was a mistake. i would've been better served with a mixer going into a much smaller interface, and it probably would've been cheaper

the good thing about having a big fat audio interface, though, is that you can track multiple instruments simultaneously. using the "mixer into a smaller interface" method means you're stuck tracking only two channels at a time, and if you're like me, you've got way more poo poo than that going on at one time. i bought a focusrite scarlett 18i20 not too long ago, and 18 inputs is still not enough, really.

and tbh I should just put all musical energy into getting better at keys, it's what's giving me the most joy, if I wasn't so hopeless I'd do lessons or something


man, you really ought to get yourself some lessons. it's really the best way to develop competency with any instrument. so many people who "teach themselves" to play end up with seriously bad technique that hinders their ability to improve and prevents them from getting competent enough to play real music. there's gotta be some music store or someplace like that in your area that offers private lessons, and the $20 or $30 per session it'll cost you is well worth it. i took private lessons on piano for nearly my entire childhood, and because of that i've been able to do some real serious gig work and make awesome music with other folks over the years.

one time we got a gig at an indie coffee shop downtown in our small town, set up and started playing. about 35 minutes in the gruff rear end boomer owner stomped up to the stage and said "are yall gonna finish tuning up and play a song?"

"uhh we've been playing for a half hour"

"yall gotta go"
