Re: *Music* anyone?

Good for you for seeing this through to completion. I am a medical doctor, a neurologist, and I am always telling my older patients to keep their brains active by trying new things and learning new skills. I wish I could get all of my patients to take on such a big project like you have done here. C...

Re: Let's talk notation, hacker style!

Tabs can include rhythm notation, but I think you are correct that most people who rely on tabs are the kind of people who play by ear. One nice thing about tablature is that it is unambiguous. Depending on how many frets your guitar has, you may be able to find the exact same note in 5 or more plac...

Re: jam710

Well said, GMaq. Social media, and online life in general, has turned into a sad, sprawling bazaar in which the main bartered commodity is attention. It's a mess, and a disaster. Back in the early days of the web, content was king. All you had to do to get traffic was make something good, and it alm...

Re: The Silver Thread and other winter works

I like that guitar piece, and the tour of Gatchina. Beautiful old churches!

Re: jam710

Not sure how I missed this before. This forum seems to have gotten busier in the past few months - more unread posts to wade through. Your jam is like the needle in the haystack, and somehow I just didn't see it until today. I like the sound you're getting on this jam. It is a good mix of synths and...

Re: new DEEP / ELECTRONIC radio - Deep Wave (+question)

Nice! This one is worth a bookmark.

I think I just found my office music for the next few weeks.

Re: A song with a bit of history

This is lovely! Nicely performed, recorded, and mixed. Is that you singing? That's a solid performance.

This recording is just dripping with affect, like squeezing water from a sponge. You really nailed the emotion of the song.

Re: How to get Ardour to work with my rig?

I recommend reading the Ardour manual. I read it cover to cover last year and it helped me a lot with stuff like this. You can do a lot, probably most or all, of the signal routing you need right within Ardour.

Re: Let's talk notation, hacker style!

Does tablature count? I can learn a song from guitar tablature 100x faster than from standard notation, because tablature mimics the way I think about how the music is played. Guitar music is about where I put my fingers on the fretboard, not about what the names of the notes are. What do you think ...

Re: TikTok Duet with Hal Walker

Yes, the music is very interesting. I enjoyed listening. The video induces vertigo, though. :)

Re: How to get Ardour to work with my rig?

I had the same problem the first time I used Ardour. You probably have to make connections on the routing grid: https://manual.ardour.org/signal-routing/Patchbay/

Re: Linux Lite Music Computer

I tried Ubuntu and Linux mint, but found Linux Lite was the best distro for my amd phenom 2 pc, with the m-audio delta 2496. So I got Bitwig 2.3.5 on it. I’ve gotten into trackers, I’ve got Tutka, Sunvox and PixiTracker. I had a more powerful pc, which is a Hackintosh and windows machine, but I had...

Re: recording EQ, compressors, etc plugins

You maybe could achieve what you want by piping a standalone Guitarix into a DAW track. Great tools for shaping your sound there, including 3-band EQ on the amps.

Re: Happy newbie

Welcome Wanderstweek! Audacity is a good place to start, and I have used it one several recordings over the years. When you get tired of its limitations there are many other options. I eventually graduated on to Ardour, which I am super happy with. Another powerful option is Qtractor, which seems to...
