  1. would love to hear some more of his music, there was a small clip in the doc and it sounded a bit burzum esque. All i could find is that you can 'apparently' purchase his old keyboard from prison https://www.darkcrimecollectables.co.uk/product-page/dennis-nilsen-s-keyboard
  2. does a complete live recording exist of the 2006 turku set??? sounded great from the short youtube clip. Looked in downloads but couldn't find anything : /
  3. Learn some scales, noodle around with those scales on the piano for an hour (i mean seriously noodle like just go to town on) don't think just hit random keys, do flourishes think medieval/baroque, make sure all the random keys you're hitting are in the scale though. Record all the midi, listen back and pick out a melody from there. Don't do a minutes worth though, really just fuck around for a good 20 mins at least. Out of randomness comes patterns eventually : ) if you've got a good ear, you'll find something in the mess.
  4. I've had mild anxiety since 2013 that Kentaro Muira would pass before finishing Berserk and it's finally happened. Gutted for him and gutted for Berserk followers. Real sad day, he was the grandmaster of manga.
  5. Probably why he hardly plays any of his own tunes live anymore, a reaction to the tunnel vision of the aphex fandom.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 😉
  9. genuinely unaware of this phenomenon, what is the 'ableton sound'?
  10. 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.
  11. Anyone hoping for Kier Starmer or Angela Rayner as new leader?
  12. Glad to see hes still doing some proper experimental stuff, that rinse out tune is decent.
  13. 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 industrial vibe to it which made it quite interesting to me.
  14. what is this about???? sounds pretty bangin whoever it is
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. I guess that's probably why i like it haha, it has a unique sound to it. Always find it easier to place things in the mix when im using it. I'm talking about the mpreverb by the way.
  19. always loved renoises own reverb, i think with redux you can use it within your own DAW of choice. Was thinking about getting redux just for this reason.
  20. Thanks for the help! I have u-tonic and have managed to get kind of close but always still feels like it's missing the depth and power. What do you mean by offsetting the transients?
  21. Looking for some help as to how to construct a kick like this? I know the kick sounds kinda standard but it has a weight and fullness that I've been trying to perfect but not really quite got there. Any tips would be welcome : ) Audio Quality of the track isn't great but you get the idea
  22. Did anyone manage to rip the Lorenzo Senni set? Didn't get a chance to listen : (
  23. Yeah I’ve heard that one before, was hoping for like a series or something. Get to wear my headphones for most of my shift at work so always looking for informative stuff to listen to
  24. Does anybody know of any good music production podcasts floating around the internet? Specifically ones that focus on mixing techniques and electronic music. Tried looking but it’s quite difficult sifting through all the debris.
