Say what you want about Microsoft

I actually like the Microsoft of the last 5 years or so. Still a megacorp that swallows smaller companies but way less creepy than Google or Amazon. Maybe even Apple.

Apart from all the telemetry, of course.

Well yeah now that they have market dominance and lock in, they no longer have to be outright shitty - even if they are, their PR department is there to handle the problems and nobody judges the winners, right? All those multibillion companies are actively working against paying any money at all in taxes, and will help any fucked up military or authoritarian government oppress their citizens if the price is right.

So can't really like them, but got to put up with them I guess.

Sorry, I didn't want to be a party pooper, just listened to too many podcasts about billg in the last few days.

In the end we'd use LFOs powered by blood emeralds anyway (and likely do - check out 'coltan' on wikipedia!), and by and large it is out of our hands as invididual consumption choices matter fuck all in the grand scheme of things.

Swapped my old EHX 2880 a couple hours ago.

Two of the floppies are corrupted, otherwise it's just about perfect.  Has the 2x RAM upgrade installed, no 4x but better than nothing.  I think that gives me something like 512k of sample memory and honestly, does anyone really need more than that?

I’m in my alt room these days bc I have some big construction works waiting in my ‘studio’ room but apparently it’ll wait for better days... probably even few months! 😞 

I finally have the speakers I always wanted to have and I’m forced to use them in a untreated small room! :catrage:

@Alcofribas @Nil

nice setups guys!!!

Nah, that just mean you're using it.

you’re right man, using in different ways of course too. Nil and alco are both computer-centric as well, so there’s a lot of physical mess sorta replaced by the digital route. could still use some tidying on my shit nonetheless tho.

Monitor is not exactly in the middle between the speakers, OCD super triggered, I could never work like this. 1/5

Wish I had a 27" Imac screen though...

      Hello everyone! I'm new to this community and would like to share some of my music.
      I've put a compilation of music on the web, a sort of sketch book or memoir. I've selected tracks I made that I think are unique enough to stand out.
      My main interest is in writing music in an organic and interesting way (interesting to me at least). All of these tracks are made purely on hardware devices - there are no VSTs or editing done on a DAW. I found that if I limit myself to the sound of what I own I'm much more content. I try to use the whole studio as a single musical instrument. Most of it is recorded live so I can 'hand automate' and tweak things.
      Some of it's techno, some of it's noisy, some of it's very minimalistic. Lots of dub vibe though
      I'm not really "into" production,  I prefer the warm, thick analog sound of the instruments without huge compression or EQ. Sonically it's quite starkly contrasted with modern technique. I like a lot of crackles and pops from the ageing gear, I like the sketchy demo quality sound.
      The website only really works on a desktop browser, but the audio will play on a mobile device. Some of he pieces are available on vinyl, but I think it's mostly sold out now.
      If anyone want's to dip their toe in, I'd recommend "Burro", "Barra" or "LAMIERA D'ACCIAIO" as starting points.
      I don't do SoundCloud or anything like that, so I hope this isn't against the rules.

      What kind of headphones do you use/like the most? Any manufacturers in particular that have your constant nod of approval? What tends to bother you about headphones on the market nowadays?
       
      I've searched but (surprisingly) failed to find any discussion here dedicated to headphones. Been needing to pick up a new pair soon, and push has come to shove since my Denon headphones (would not recommend) are literally falling to pieces. Especially unsure which ones i want next since my uses have broadened (monitoring many machines at once, EQing, listening to records, general music listening-to). Only thing i know is that they must be over-the-ear

      The past couple of days I've been fairly influenced by the Colundi Sequences and I wanted to figure out how on earth I was going to be able to play any of it. So I took the time to tune Harmor in order to do so.
       
      http://imgur.com/iOxZj08
       
      Basically I just adjusted the frequencies on Harmor while using a tuner. Sounds simple, but it took a couple hours to do so. I determined the frequencies by looking at the number chart in this interview with Aleksi (http://www.residentadvisor.net/feature.aspx?2567) and I just fiddled with the numbers until everything fit in a nice pattern. I've made a scale of 16 notes and I finished 6 octaves worth. It's about 99% accurate (Harmor has slight limitations where I can place markers on the map, but it's very close) and if you want higher pitches, increasing it with the freq knob keeps it fairly accurate. The freq differences are negligible and for the most part I'm not worried about it.
       
      I have no idea if Aleksi actually follows those numbers or not, this is just what I did for experimentation.
       
      I've put a link on the bottom to the preset plus some midi to help map out where the "C's" and "G's" are. If only 16 note keyboards existed (they probably do, Idk). I was pretty thorough making sure there weren't any bugs or anything, but anything is possible.
       
      If anybody has FL Studio and Harmor have fun experimenting!

      Good evening folks,
      let me say the title is meant to be a bit funny but I really have a problem with sampling sometimes.

      I do have a moniker where it's all about sampling but the 'style' of music I released thru this project is not really my thing at the end of the day.
      It was meant exactly to approach sampling but at the same time being "masked" behind an anonymous identity.

      I don't know how you feel about sampling, if you use samples from other people's music and how you use them.
      I sometime sample myself, from old tunes but I really CAN'T think of releasing a track where I sampled someone else's work.
      I know it's a mental block and / or limit , whatever.

      Is there anybody here who has or had in the past the same problem?
      I think if I would start sampling, my music could become more diverse and, maybe, even more "musical" and interesting.

      Hopefully this thread doesn't sound too fucked up / stupid

      Cheers guys!

      Any one know anything about what he's used/his setup on any of his releases? Pretty surprised there's not already a thread on this... The Aphex Twin's studio pics don't really amount to much...
       
      For example:
       
      Surfing on Sine Waves..
       
      "hmm I think i read he used 3 in tape.. ssl board... lexicon verb.. ua compressor.. etc..."
       
      Milkman:
       
      "hmmm Sounds like a Moog Voyager going into heavily driven tube pre's"
       
      analords:
       
      "definitely sylenth, ableton and waves bundle..." (just kidding)
       
       
      Speculation also welcome... I'm assuming this will prob overlap into production a bit which is totally fine :D
