  1. Completely agree on this, happens every time! Get fed up with a track i've been working on for weeks, mess around on another one that i don't really like for an hour, end up writing something better than the one i was working on for weeks. I always wonder though whether it's actually better or whether you've written something so quickly and without much thought that you perceive it as something not written by you if you know what i mean, hence not listening to it with such a critical ear and thus removing your ego from the equation. Although this is straying from the topic of this thread
  2. Probably why he hardly plays any of his own tunes live anymore, a reaction to the tunnel vision of the aphex fandom.
  3. Yeah i agree with you. Although i wasn't really clear in my argument, my point was that Aphex probably believes that these people were superior to him and that they'd 'already done it'. Didn't stop him making music like them and potentially surpassing them. Just wanted to cheer up the person who started this thread.
  4. probably the outcome of revolving your entire personality/life around music and nothing else, no grounding in reality, no struggle, no culture. He's perfect at music and that's his problem, it's your idiosyncrasies as a musician that gives you your uniqueness but he is total musical perfection and what comes out is just that, bland. You don't wanna hear perfect music, it sucks.
  5. Neutron 9000 did it better Erik Satie did it better Brian Eno did it better Drexciya did it better Aphex tried to reach these heights but ultimately failed and look where he ended up 😉
  6. genuinely unaware of this phenomenon, what is the 'ableton sound'?
  7. Anyone have any experience with using Logic Pro 9.1.8 on El Capitan? Checked elsewhere on the internet and heard conflicting reports, hoping someone on here has done this and whether they've experienced any issues. Currently on Yosemite so would just be upgrading as opposed to reinstalling everything.
  8. Anyone hoping for Kier Starmer or Angela Rayner as new leader?
  9. Glad to see hes still doing some proper experimental stuff, that rinse out tune is decent.
  10. Yeah it's a rip off a radio show i think. I found another track by the same artist that has a slightly similar kick, better audio quality too. The kick starts at around 1.20 Thankyou all for the advice, need to give the delay feedback thing a go, i got kind of close to a real thumping sound by using platinum verb in logic turning all the way to wet and just lowering the room size (lost a lot of high end though) Don't know if that has a similar effect to what ur describing. Do you think she just used a sample pack for this kick or synthesised herself? The kick has an earthy yet indus
  11. what is this about???? sounds pretty bangin whoever it is
  12. I second the PG8X, if you scour the internet you can find some amazing presets for it too. Does amazing pads and the bass on that thing is lush
  13. Yeah I know vsts now are very good but they do also sound kinda sterile. I guess the low quality of the old ones is what appeals to me, its like the playstaion 1 sound card is crap but it sounds amazing to me, really earthy.
  14. mda JX10 for me, so buggy and unstable. Even more so for me as i had to wrap it into an audio unit to be able to use it in Logic. But the sound just has this amazing dusty quality to it, i swear some of these early VST's are gonna become just as loved as some analogue equipment. To me it has its own sound, somewhere in between analogue and digital.
