Re: Storing projects on Google drive...concerns?

@milo I did see that, yes. Haven't looked to deeply into it at the moment, but it does raise some concerns on the surface. Thanks for the extra info! @folderol yeah I don't currently encrypt anything that I store on my Drive, so that's another thing I should consider. For me it's always just been ab...

Re: Storing projects on Google drive...concerns?

I think this particular concern is probably overboard. Imagine the optics of a lawsuit brought against Google for commandeering intellectual property from their users. It would be terrible PR for them if you could prove your case. Users would flee them like rats off of a sinking ship, which is what...

Storing projects on Google drive...concerns?

Hey Linux musician community, Not sure if this topic fits in this category but if not feel free to move! Anyways, I've been thinking about this as of late. Maybe I'm overly paranoid, but I'd like to hear your opinions on this. I keep copies of pretty much all of my completed and in progress projects...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

Darjeeling by Barrie: https://barrie.bandcamp.com/album/happy-to-be-here.

Just stumbled on this via my Bandcamp feed - such a nice, breezy vibe to them. Puts me into a summer-y mindset.

Re: Love Letters During Winter

Thanks! I think I had the most fun writing that one :wink:. I intentionally made these tracks sort of sparse, but I agree that a little more synth can go a long way in any situation. I appreciate the feedback!!

Re: Love Letters During Winter

Thanks! I told myself if nothing else sounded good I should at least aim for the sax parts to be semi decent! For the piano, it's actually the midi instrument MDE Piano (not to be confused with MDA ePiano :lol: ). I tweaked some of the params on one of the presets that I liked best and added reverb ...

Love Letters During Winter

Hi all, This is the first time I've mustered the courage to release a project of mine to the public at large :lol: . This is an EP project that I started working on last winter (2017). It's a bunch of songs that started out as poems I had swimming around in my head - they focus on little scenes shar...

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

Not really a song per se, but an album..coming back to some Sonic Youth's Bad Moon Rising after a hiatus of a couple of years. Ferocious stuff on that record 8)

Re: Best synths?

I've been partial to Zyn for a few years; it's so deep....only recently have I been experimenting with Helm and I'm liking it so far. I have a project brewing and I hope to get plenty more familiar with them in the upcoming months..

Re: Need a new Linux-compatible audio Interface

+1 for the Komplete Audio 6. Just bought one in the spring of this year and it's been working beautifully for me. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a smaller sized interface. :D :D

Re: When you release your music, do you credit Linux?

When I finally do release the project I've been working on, I think I will credit Linux. I don't know if I would list each and every program used, but I would definitely say something along the lines of "recorded, mixed, (etc) with free and open-source software (insert Linux distro)". I th...

Re: Why Do You Write Your Own Music?

I also think it is sort of an extension of the rationale for playing covers, often covers are selected and learned out of an admiration and appreciation for the talents of the original artists it also follows that original material comes out of a want to take something that has inspired you and tak...

Re: Why Do You Write Your Own Music?

I never was able to do covers. Very early I played some well-known guitar licks and friends would go "aaaahhh" then I'd say quite shortly well, that's all I know. And I never digged deeper in 'perfectioning' playing other people's tunes, nevermind learning them. Very early I created stuff...

Re: Why Do You Write Your Own Music?

I think i'm one of the 'strangers' here on this one between the many electronic producers. :mrgreen: My style of working is rather old school music with instruments. Even were i for instance use hydrogen for drums i still fall back on that old school drumming and the sound i want to get. I'm with y...

Re: Why Do You Write Your Own Music?

Awesome answers, thanks everyone for the input! I like to pick the brains of other creative people to see how they tick :wink: Some of you have mentioned that writing your own music equates to something like a puzzle (and the enjoyment that comes out of "solving" or completing one). Do you...
