  1. You motherfucker! This is savant-level perfect though! My god, you just absolutely nailed it!
  2. Could you imagine a way for sequencers to do this? Are you talking about maybe each step could be either 2/8 or 3/8 and you could configure it? If you're into odd-time that could be pretty killer.
  3. This is pretty awesome. At the moment I'm playing the Indian Shruti tuning through the Surge plugin, using the free version of mts esp. I also came across this list: https://en.xen.wiki/w/List_of_Microtonal_Software_Plugins, which was helpful. There's also a lot of pre-made tunings available on-line, such as this site: https://sevish.com/music-resources/ This whole thing is kind of making me interested in mircotunings now.
  4. No, you could be on to something. I liked that reverb snare sound and decided to go with it. But too much is too much and muddiness is definitely something I don't want. I'll look into that.
  5. I've been sitting on this for a little while now. In retrospect, I don't quite know what to think of it. Also, it's probably the jazziest thing I've done in a while. https://soundcloud.com/artificial-disco/on-the-down-low
  6. "Shattering hegemonies" sounds a lot cooler than "developing a plugin". Maybe somewhat ironically this might be the easiest way to sell his ideas to western liberals looking to feel guilty about something new. But there could be real opportunity there. Maybe there are millions of Indians frustrated that their favorite 22-note sitar tuning isn't available in Ableton. Whatever DAW that jumps on this and makes it simple and easy might have a hit on their hands.
  7. I tried so hard to figure out which song this is until I realized Plotinus is the title. I'm an idiot sometimes. Also I'm not as familiar with Hello Everything as his other stuff. Anyway, pretty good job of figuring these out! It's a pretty tricky chord progression that seems to modulate at least two times and throw in a bit of phrygian-ness near the end. Have you tried to analyse it or make any sense of it at all?
  8. Yeah, could we maybe have more info on that former label. Is it googlable?
  9. What I'm hearing in my mind is a cello at the bottom or something similar playing a bass line. It could come in close to the ending (at 1:20) and play long notes, but also do something melodic, so you'll feel it as a new element. Then it could be time to silence some things... maybe give the bells a break. That could open up space for some variation, maybe that would be a good place to go nuts with the drums. I'd also bring down the volume of the bells overall - just a smidge. Otherwise a nice sounding track!
  10. I feel like it's a little backing track-ish. Adding a melody could be a way to move forward. Something smooth, sine-wavey that soars on top of the rest. It shouldn't come in right away, maybe at the one-minute mark. That also adds a lot of development possibilities because you could repeat it, silence it, chop it up, vary it, etc. At least I think there is space in the "top layer" for doing something that grabs attention, especially in the later parts of the track.
  11. No Children by The Mountain Goats. It gets some extra points for how perfectly it got used in Moral Orel, which is a silly but ultimately devastatingly depressing show about puppets.
  12. Thanks a bunch. I did have your earlier comment in this thread in mind - to get more weird with the synths. I'd like to think that paid off at least a little bit.
  13. Thanks a lot! When I got to the point of settling it down a little I figured it had some space a little trumpet playing. This type of sound owes everything to Miles Davis' Bitches Brew.
  14. Thanks to soundcloud for the title of this one. I guess it's supposed be cutesy error message, but it kind of sounds like it could be a Philip Dick novel or something. This is also probably the most IDM thing I can muster at the moment. https://soundcloud.com/artificial-disco/our-robot-think-youre-a-robot
