Re: HazySun - relaxed, upbeat, piano, guitar, haze

A nice improv. Maybe needs a bit more glue to hold the themes together, but I like it. My favorite parts: 1) At about 1:30 where the guitar and piano drop out and a new synth sound comes in. This is a really nice moment. 2) The groove you get into between about 3:45 and 4:15 is a good place, and the...

Re: New guy here and already struggling with Jack!

Audacious can play through JACK, if all you want to do is play an mp3. That's probably less trouble than Audacity, if all you want to do is play along to a prerecorded backing track. If you are trying to record your guitar, then you will need something like Audacity or another DAW.

Re: Hi guys

If it is an acoustic-electric, as you say, then you should be able to plug it in to an amplifier, distortion pedal, wah-wah, or anything like that. Acoustic-electric instruments typically use piezoelectric pickups instead of electromagnetic ones. Piezoelectric pickups are usually in the bridge, so t...

Re: Please Sit.. I wanna talk to you about something

Really nice production, audio and video. Impressive work! I especially like the part where you sample the acoustic percussion instruments, and then they appear magically in the soundtrack a few seconds later. Awesome!

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Post Clarification Request

I think it is almost always the case that there is a more specific subforum rather than "news". What would you all think about removing the "news" subforum entirely? I think you're right. I like consolidation. And if a post really doesn't fit anywhere else, there is already a forum for "Stuff That ...

Re: Linux instrument tuners

. . . but gstrings is more accurate than gxtuner. That has also been my experience. I still use gstrings. There was an older app that was even better than gstrings that disappeared from the Play Store a year or so ago. Can't remember its name, but I still miss it. Never tried to use TuxGuitar tuner...

Re: funky album produced on the big tux itself

Also I was thinking that some slap bass and some wah-wah guitar would fit pretty well here and there on the album.

Re: funky album produced on the big tux itself

This album has a definite early 80's feel to it. Makes me feel like a kid again. It also reminds me of an album my friend recorded in his bedroom when we were teenagers. (It's the drum sounds. They sound just like the keyboard he used a lot on that album.) Good times! The vocals sound like they are ...

Re: The Eden lake

Nice melodies on the piano. I particularly liked the coda from about 1:20 onward, when the drums drop out. A very effective and sweet ending. Nice work!

Re: becoze i'm bored u can't drink one beer a cop annoy you....

Interesting recording. I like what you have done with manipulating the sampled bass track. It adds a subtle but cool effect.

The reverb guitar sample is a bit detuned - sounds like the hangover you would expect after attending such a party. :)

Re: a free ambiant/dub techno traxx made on linux + 1st release...

I like the superimposed rhythms and timings in "Tera to Melanchoria." A lot of ear candy in that track.

It runs a little long, and I'm not sure that there's quite enough variation to justify 12 minutes. That's a matter of taste, I suppose. (Probably par for the course with ambient music.)

Re: What I Did Wrong

I don't know if you like Weezer but it reminded me a lot of them, and I absolutely loved everything about this song...Especially the fact that it's so rough around the edges! This is likely one of the best amateur tracks I have ever listened to on the internet. Goodness! That is quite a compliment!...
