idk, it's a clone of a synth that's over 40 years old, the fact that it _could_ sequence was probably cool back in the day. but it was a commercial failure, and ended up in bargain bins and pawn shops, then acid house happened after it'd already been discontinued bc people could get em for cheap and make cool poo poo

yeah the 80s were basically the loving stone age for long form composition so im just impressed people made albums with this

by the way, holy cock????:

https://youtu.be/TNJzCaybzOk

look at all those goddamn tracks. so many tracks. thereís like one track per sample and/or plugin and the list is as wide as my thighs when I sit down

and yet rarely are more than six or seven on at a time. when thereís more than that itís an overblown mess. and I know drat well why there are so many tracks, itís because the composer wanted exacting control over the fx for each unique sound in the mix

but you donít need them! you donít need all those tracks

you can group samples and phrases under an instrument and use the bus for that specific instrument

you donít need all those tracks!!! stop it!! stop!!!!!

4lokos basilisk posted:

i have got my tracks down to 4 stereo pairs
and two mono basses and its nice

i will still use more sounds in the hardware sometimes

stereo pairs?

and itís fine to have a lot of sounds in a work, just that IMO it gets tough to listen to when too much is happening at once and the track gets crowded as gently caress

4lokos basilisk posted:

by stereo pairs i mean one instrument/sound coming from
hardware in stereo. i use two hardware rack units as sound sources: roland xv5080 and korg ms2000r

i wish i had the attention span to micromanage sounds. instead i just have a template project with a ready mix that i tweak over time and sometimes adjust depending on need.

i am deliberately focusing mostly on arrangement of different parts harmonically and rhythmically instead of mixing recently

thatís actually what you should be doing. if the intent of mixing is to get each sound source to fit in their right spot without stepping on any other partís toes, the best way to do that is to not harmonically overlap sounds in the first place. mixing a bassline, a deep kick drum, a bright and noisy hi hat, a midrange snare drum, and a mid-high keyline is dead simple - they already donít overlap, or only very minimally so!

itís called premixing or whatever. arranging your music so that you donít have to move much around in the first place.

good luck friend. at best I can make something that sounds cool for a moment, capturing some heart is a challenge.

it is very not easy. I can identify it when it shows up, but recalling it on demand is some arcane magic.

Harmonic minor is tied with Lydian for me for fun modes.
Although mixolydian flat 6 is up there.
Its got a complicated name but it's all the white keys on a piano from G to G except instead of E you play E flat and it is instant Trent Reznor soundtrack

It's so good on a too much reverb piano sound

I like that same scale but with A sharp instead of B
