here's my little setup
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.

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.
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
