  1. The exhibition thing is really good. Trippy as fuck. Beware.
  2. Not sure why everyone bashes this guy. It's doing a certain vibe and it does it well.
  3. Yeah it's dense that for sure. Got to be in the right mind set for sure. I can see this growing into a proper favourite in the same way that other heavy albums are like this. Like you know it's amazing but it's also effortful. Best music is like that tho I think.
  4. Great thread. I'd like to ask about M/S eq. Am I correct in saying that M/S eq is the only way you can eq a sound that innately has stereo content? I think I can be a bit overly clinical with sounds when I inspect what's actually going on with them frequency wise and other than just using my ears/looking at the faders, I use M/S eq to just see what's going on with a sound full stop. I often find that a stereo sound has unnecessary low end content when I engage the S part of the ableton eq8 so my practice is often to cut the bass in the stereo field. Is that good practice generally? What I do note for sure is that creating a clear difference between the M and S frequency content really widens a sound for sure but I have to be careful not to boost too much in the stereo field just because it sounds nice when wider right. Maybe I'm not fully getting this tho. Also, totally agree you have to eq in context. Don't think there's any other option. However, my experience is that you can really only tweak one eq on one track for one sound at a time without then physically clicking to the next track and then repeating the process. I suppose on a real mixing desk you'd have instant access to all eq settings as they are there on the board in front of you so yeah you can do it physically easier but on Ableton how is this done.... Midi mapping and then automating to listen in context? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks. Yeah I've been getting thrown by simple things like that. I don't seem to be doing the equivalent of control c/v correctly and something I used to do a lot on Windows was like "Windows D" which would fire me back to the desktop minimising everything else which I can't seem to do on mac yet. Weirdly I'm also finding that monitors seem to switch off after a few minutes of non use "no signal received" but underlying apps are continuing to run. I wonder if this is some kind of auto sleep/energy conservation option I need to disable. Either way I need a proper keyboard and actual pc monitor rather than what is effectively a TV monitor it seems. Teething problems innit. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks. No not at all this is exactly the sort of thing I need to learn. I'm having to unlearn quite a bit of windows stuff. I don't have an apple keyboard yet. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. I went with a 2020 Refurb mac mini by the way and it's brilliant thus far. Still getting my head round the whole apple world tho. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah I've got the vinyl now. It's definitely like tripping music even tho I know that sounds contrived. A lot of the synth tones remind me a lot of that trippy Coil album which is high praise. It's definitely quite a heavy album tho. Not something you can just throw on. I'm also not totally sure if I jive with the perc as I find I'm constantly waiting for an old school kick snare shack thing but it never ever ever locks in. I think that's very intentional tho.

  9. Quickly looked at these. I presume you're telling me to just make a decision and shut up?! Haha. The thing is that I'm deep into a song right now as is and will probbaly make a decision in a few months when I'm financially better off so yeah... Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk Also when you say "figuring out your set up", what do you mean exactly? Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Yeah I mean I'm spending time reading about Mac Mini. And yes, I just want a ridiculously reliable machine and no bs. Luckily at the minute I've got my gf's HP Windows Laptop which is good enough to track what I seem to be primarily doing which is writing on acoustic guitar at this point but yeah... That laptop will suffer with anything more than a few tracks I'm sure so yeah.. I'll probbaly just bite the bullet. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. I've been meaning to hear this. Hearing great things. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Argh.. Am I being brought round to the apple world? To be fair I just need to do the basics office wise and just super reliable ableton. Dont even game. Maybe it is worth a change. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah I'm really enjoying this. Bass heavy in sections so advise sub or headphones for sure. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
