  1. The most intense snake charming music of all time
  2. mostly finished instrumental for first proper release
  3. Thank you! I'm running on a pretty low powered machine since I've been living nomadically over the past year, so it's a barebones setup. I use FL Studio, all stock plugins besides some Arturia plugins and Valhalla Supermassive. CPU usage goes to unusable levels when I stack too many third party plugins on. Wouldn't mind some recommendations on some free/cheap low CPU intensive plugins, especially FX
  4. Yes, as a guide, though not necessarily as a destination. Honestly, It's a little disappointing how many Marxists are unwilling to break through the confines of 150 year old commentaries on economies of the time. Marx can't answer a lot of questions about the modern world, which isn't saying anything about his work, It's just recognizing the fact that he is a product of his time. That being said, you can't forget your history
  5. short little wip that'll definitely become something more at some point prophet.mp3
  6. final version of crystal veil
  7. I notice that the quicker I put a track together, it usually ends up a bit messy melodically. It starts to sound like melodies being stacked on top of each other rather than multiple timbres working in unison for the betterment of the whole. During the production process, the producer is the most hyper aware of the track, so what may look like an empty project file may sound fine to someone who wasn't actually there to see it. But, whenever there's a little check mark to be filled in so to speak, I feel the need to fill it even if later, I realize it to be a detriment to the atmosphere of the track. When you listen to the same piece of audio over and over again ad nauseum, you're going to want to mix it up just for the sake of sanity in most cases - but this can easily end in a track that's far too short with too many transitions. Recently whenever I've started really digging a track, I'll shut it off for a few hours and get my mind off of it. I'll come back to the track refreshed, and hopefully will have kind of forgotten what it sounded like at that point. I've found I've been a lot less impulsive when it comes to shoehorning in as much as possible.
  8. Stupid good! Not just feeling it - i'm living this track
  9. made the bass a little less crazy in the new mix; I definitely agree. I appreciate the feedback!
  10. new WIP, might finish alongside the other track for the EP coolwip.mp3
  11. Personally, I agree. But this is a great tool for people who have difficulty interfacing with a desktop environment when producing music. There's something to be said about the immediacy and approachability of dedicated hardware, especially if you're just starting out. The limitations of something that's sole purpose is to make music in its own specific way can be very liberating in the creative process. I think it's a cool little box, I don't really see a need for it myself when Renoise exists; but I remember being pretty uncomfortable with the limitless options that a DAW provided at my disposal when I didn't really have too great of a grasp on what was going on.
  12. really comfy! I love the vibe in there, super warm and cozy loving the wall decor, too. especially that keyboard sign! so cool
  13. filled the track out quite a bit; also added a secondary section at the end. mixing needs some work and it needs polish, but overall I'm very happy with it so far! fullersketch.mp3
  14. i could post every vibert track that made me happy but i don't want to take up 10 pages of this thread
  15. more tracks like this please one of my favorites
  16. how did anything that I had to say have anything to do with RDJ personally, or his character? I just said that his image can market itself; he's on a different schedule and platform than most artists.
  17. I honestly really dislike Soundcloud as a platform these days. The UI is a cluttered mess, and it's difficult to find new music that I enjoy without going through artists that others are following. I think that it's failing artists, because it fails music consumers first and foremost. Depending on what tags you put on your uploads, bots will spam your uploads with likes and reposts, regardless of the quality of the track, or if you want it or not. Obviously, trendy tags get the most attention from bots, which drives the "economy" so to speak, to produce an endless swarm of shit. It's a shame, and I really hope that Soundcloud won't be the big dog on top for much longer, which is foreseeable considering how little of a profit they make. I don't know anyone outside of other artists who even pay for a Soundcloud subscription of any kind.
