I was really happy to see you give a shoutout to SoundEdit 16 a couple times and hear a couple tracks you've used it in -- what do you use now for similar editing purposes?

 

I'd ask for a recommendation for editing software, but I'm not necessarily interested in the "best" -- just something with a similar feel that doesn't require going back to OS9. SE16 was my favorite software years ago and I'm thinking of resurrecting an old OS9-era powerbook so that I can use it again.. I've never been happy with Audacity or other newer editors considered to be similar. Any recommendations?

 

usually i use digital performer but if its something really simple like trimming starts and ends i'll use wave editor

 

interesting, so you guys are still pretty die-hard about DP (digital performer)? I tried it a few times and never quite got into it but I know a few producers (one: bloodysnowman) who swears by it.

 

What specifically about digital Performer especially in the context of AE's music sets it apart from other serious daws like Logic, Cubase or Protools ?

i prefer the audio editing in DP

logic has caught up a bit but DP still has the edge for me

Has anyone asked about the "Fermium" video?

 

How did that come about, and what is going on in it? Do you see it as relating to the music in any meaningful way?

 

I see it as them being on a psychedelics binge and ending at that moment when it hits you like the shits that you have been created, are self-conscious, are one kazillionth the size of the universe, and are going to die and everything is beautiful and you're crying from terror!

hey baph where've u been?

 

 

well, after Sean said it was totally normal for me to want to pee on metal things because the sounds are cool, let's just say I've been drinking a lot of water

 

(Seriously thank you guys for this, by the way. I know we're not supposed to muddy up the thread with thanks, but checking in here has made the work week much more tolerable. It was a rough one @ work, tbh. It's been a lot of fun and super interesting to read. Sorry if I asked too many "how'd you make this bit" questions, I know those are probably annoying as hell.)

 

And Sean I hope you're not getting sick from watmm-induced exhaustion. Take care of yourself, Sean pls.

How I imagine ae max sequencers :

 

4 "tracks" each programmed with a basic beat

 

sliders that then push beats near the "now" beat forward

sliders that adjust sample loop point and/or repeats

sliders adjusting wet/dry of delays and reverbs

 

buttons which add notes to the current note with-in certain guidelines.

they all have hard grids, i mean that u have to get around consciously. but DP was the first for us to have no safety net as such. or a net thats superfine res, that u can't see it, u get to go really close, and it frees u up to get what u want musically, as opposed to being forced into the more common contemporary structures. its more classical in a way. but if u need stuff to lock up, its possible. just not in yr face all the time with the confines of the fashionable lazy way. oh and they were first to go sample accurate with midi. and automation.
