Re: "s17-13" - progressive/electro

Ironically, I have a dusty amiga 500 about ten feet away. It has an OS/2 cdrom beside it. Late at night, I can sometimes hear them crying.

Re: "s17-13" - progressive/electro

you found it's really TOO much ? By today's standards, that's about how most pop music is mixed. There has been a growing tendency over the past 3 decades to try to get mixes "louder". Clipping that never would have been tolerated 30 years ago (the mastering engineer would have rejected it outright...

Re: "s17-13" - progressive/electro

There's a tremendous amount of clipping on that mix. My ears physically started hurting within 15 seconds. Clipping gives me serious ear fatigue.

Guys, don't mix too loud.

Re: Good orchestral soundfont and sampler?

What sample rate are you using? The majority of VPO's instruments come from the "No Budget Orchestra". (nbo_2.zip at http://www.bandshed.net/sounds/sfz) Those instruments are looped at 44.1KHz. If you're playing them back at 48KHz or 96KHz, then sfizz is probably interpolating the waves to that rate...

I was wondering which neighbor was playing all that loud music last night. But I'm not sure I'd describe Rage Against the Machine as "big band music".

"Blue Skies" is an old Bing Crosby number. Not my thing. Let me know when you do some Woody Herman.

You're going to have to take your computer to the hospital emergency room, and ask them to perform a CAT scan.

The last thing I would associate with banjo playing is "soul". Ain't no banjo on any Motown recordings.

I've been posting here for years, and am responsible for "getting away with" posting some of the most notoriously riot-inducing messages. So, I can give some advice for how to ensure you don't get soiled when you're tossing crap at the fan. You can usually squeak by if you think of some witty, humor...

Re: Your Thoughts on EQs

I would describe my attitude toward EQ, but my opinions may be too graphic for the moderators.

I'll wait for you to "get it" (unless you're a banjo player. I don't have that much time).

Re: No MIDI_IN for Linux from ROLAND FANTOM X - Help!

You don't have some "MIDI bridge software" installed, such as a2jmid, right? Because that will grab your midi ports away from ALSA.

Re: No MIDI_IN for Linux from ROLAND FANTOM X - Help!

Consult page 218 of your manual "Selecting MIDI Mode". Try saving the setting so the X8 powers up in this mode (instead of storage mode). Also, try changing the "MIDI Thru" setting. Perhaps it is on, and therefore alsa is detecting a potential "MIDI feedback loop", and thus compensating by disabling...

Re: No MIDI_IN for Linux from ROLAND FANTOM X - Help!

Roland devices often have two USB modes. One is the USBMIDI standard. The other mode is a proprietary "enhanced" mode that supports extra features (ie more than 16 MIDI channels). There is a "USB mode" setting you can change (usually in the "System" menu). The proprietary roland driver for Windows s...

If you want backup accompaniment for the purpose of practicing your technique, you may want to look at my program "BackupBand". That's one of its main purposes. BackupBand features a robot drummer, bassist, and rhythm guitarist that know how to play in over 60 different musical styles. The robots ca...
