Re: Making music as you get older

Anyone else feel what I'm feeling? Nope! I make music because I am obsessive/compulsive about it. I've always done it for myself and as a way to spend time with friends. If I could, I would do it all day, every day, and I've felt that way for 30+ years. I've never experienced the social pressure yo...

I haven't noticed any problems with the site and I still listen regularly. I've discovered I like pretty much everything on Tehnofonika Records. 8)

Re: Free GrandPiano SF2

If you make a torrent of this SoundFont, I'll seed it. I've been seeding the No Budget Orchestra and a few Linux distros for a long time.

Re: EnergyXT 2.7 Linux (32bit) on a 64bit Machine

XT super-fan here. Is this fairly safe to install on my system along with the Windows version in WINE? I am currently running 64-bit Linux Mint 19.1 with wine-staging. I might have time this weekend to play around with it.

Wow, nice. Could have used this a few months ago when I sampled one of my drum machines. Keep up the good work!

Re: Linux Mint user for 2 years, change?

Really all you need is the apps and some minor system tweaks, like the kernel. Mint is a solid platform for music making. Agreed. I used Ubuntu Studio for a few years then switched back to Mint. All my problems making music are the same tired Linux/FOSS issues that are true on any distro. Mint rocks.

Re: Dig This -Trying to make house, but feels like I am failing

How to use a spectrum analyser ? :wink: A spectrum analyzer helps you confirm with your eyes what you hear (or can't hear). For instance, your monitors might not be able to accurately reproduce frequencies under 100Hz, so a spectrum analyzer will warn you if your sub-bass is too loud or quiet. One ...

Re: Dig This -Trying to make house, but feels like I am failing

It's pretty good! I think you've got all the right elements but need to work on the mix. Mostly, the drums need to sound a bit more aggressive. They should dominate the song. Right now, the organ stabs dominate. I would try and find a better harmony between the kick/snare/hat then add the other elem...

Re: Microphone recommendations for speech

Thanks for the correction, j_e_f_f_g. I would also like to add I am a big fan of the LSP " Gate " plugin. It takes a lot of training to breathe correctly and minimize breaths and mouth noise, and this plugin gives you amazing control over the "not speech" part of your track. I know this is off track...
