  1. Lol yeah it's really melodic. The thing I find with them tho is that it's tiring to listen to too much of it. I'd find it hard to listen to the new record from start to finish without thinking I'm fucking my mild tinnitus up or something lol. So good. There's a track called They Move Below which is like tool or something. Great band. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. It's amazing Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah I just love the caretaker stuff so I don't really care re. Technicality. The more the better in my mind. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. I kind of get where you're coming from but I challenge you to literally do that and come up with something that's as good as his album tracks. I think there's likely an awful lot more going on and it's all modulated. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. What's this like?! Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. I mean yeah... I'm reluctant to sort of spread negativity generally in life especially about creatives which obviously I've done here but I suppose I just wanted another ambient sound world thing. This guy is class perhaps the next record will be more my thing. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Agreed. Just reminded me of some of the more generic actress stuff. I love actress so that's saying something. Not hating. I love this guys other stuff. Ah well. Evolution of sound innit. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. I didn't like this at all to be honest. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Really excited for the new Meshuggah tbh. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. I just went with an original large Big Muff. Interestingly I tried a few different electro harmonix things and went with the original US Migmuff. Had a lot more low end! Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks a lot everyone. Yeah probably just gonna go with a fuzz and bass down the line. Hope you're all ace. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Any tips on a fuzz pedal peeps? I'm trying to achieve more of a droney metal done ala Godflesh with my strat bridge pick up (single coil). Getting close with a tube screamer and just being loud but desiring something else. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks guys. Nah I'm just not going to bother for all that effort then. Tempted now by a fuzz pedal to be honest. Trying to boost my single coil strat tone to work better with heavier drone stuff. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Yeah I did wonder. I was looking at this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403456840464?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D23467bc613ed40a4a218c71728b1ca5a%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D403456840464%26itm%3D403456840464%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DRoland&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A4415723c-8a77-11ec-a0a3-6e266b1da216%7Cparentrq%3Ae3ded60c17e0ad333afd6cacffedb438%7Ciid%3A1 Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Good advice cheers. Im sort of holding off to an extent now and just digging into the 1080 as much as I can. I'm getting good results. I'll have a browse tho. I was considering a used drum machine actually. Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  16. Hey all! Hope you're well. So I've recently bought my strat and love it and ive been very close to buying a boss katana MK2 amp and a foot controller which is like 400£ or maybe a tad bit more. I've got an old fender champion 110 but the spring reverb is really noisy which is kind of annoying. But I've sort of decided to delay this until I can get a proper amp used and save my cash. I've been considering the lyra 8 but I think it's out of budget. I've also been considering getting a techno expansion card for my jv 1080 which I adore now I've got the midi editor working and purchased some extra presets. The Don solaris pack. The expansion card is £100 on ebay. Or bass guitar as the girl I'm dating is a singer and wants a new bass. Maybe 80-200£ if a budget guitar. Or, should I get an external reverb pedal to go with the amp I've actually got and add that to the Ts7 tubescreamer and wah I've got in the chain. I've got no external reverb at this point other than the midiverb2 which is somehat occupied as it's only got one set of stereo ins/outs so I use it for ableton stuff. Or should I get a bizarre non rack synth. Like something interesting with wave table maybe. I feel like I'd just like a new toy. I'm being ridiculously productive music wise and I'm working with a drummer now too so I've got tracks being finished sort of weekly for the first time or some jazz. It's going really well and I've got a nice studio space now. All advice appreciated! Sent from my EML-L09 using Tapatalk
  17. Fair enough. I won't bother then. My ex was a big fan of one of his tunes called Linked which I quite liked as it had some acid sounds but yeah... Cheers! Toodles.
  18. Is this worth my time watmm?
  19. The exhibition thing is really good. Trippy as fuck. Beware.
  20. Not sure why everyone bashes this guy. It's doing a certain vibe and it does it well.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
