  1. I have nothing constructive to say, but your music is awesome.
  2. I've never understood the Tool hype. I'm a pseudo-intellectual stoner who hasn't had a girlfriend in years so it seems like Tool should be right up my street but every time I try listening it just sounds dreary and tedious. If I want pretentious prog metal I'll listen to Dream Theater instead, they're awesome. Any tracks you'd recommend to start with? I'm loathe to just type "Isis" into YouTube's search field for the obvious reason.

    Saw this thread being bumped and assumed it was just people antagonising AE35unit for yuks. So this is a pleasant surprise.
  4. Dunno about the Black. but I have the original Dragonfly to use instead of my laptop's onboard sound. It sounds great. My only complaint is that if the laptop is not plugged in, the Dragonfly goes to sleep after a short while if the laptop isn't making any sound, and takes about 6 seconds to start working again when I next try to play something. Not a problem if just listening to music but gets annoying when trying to produce. No idea whether that's an issue with the newer models.

    I don't think we did. Nice!
  7. Some attempts at constructive criticism, I'm a crap producer so take this all with a grain of salt: All of your melodies make me picture someone hitting keys on a keyboard. I'm not sure why but I think it's partly down to the lack of variation between notes; try adding some more automation, like a filter cutoff modulated by a slow lfo, or have parameters tied to the velocity and add some more expression. Also you could try making the notes bleed into each other more, for example by slowing down the attack and release or using some portamento. Another thing: IMO some of your harmonies just don't work. In particular, often when you add a new instrument while repeating a melody from the previous section, some notes in the new melody clash with notes in the old melody. May I suggest that you listen out for this when adding new parts, and when notes sound wrong together, change the offending notes in the old melody so they sit more nicely with the new ones? In addition to eliminating the clashes this may give your tunes more of a sense of progression.
