Re: Hello from Oregon!

Welcome to the forum! Sorry to hear about your bricked laptop.

What do you mean by "professionally" in scare quotes? Are you pan-handling, or something? :)

Is your music online somewhere? I'd love to hear what you are recording.

Re: Cover song recorded in Ardour

Nice family project! I like it.

I have been meaning to check out the Salamander piano samples. There was another recording posted here recently that used it.

That's quite a setup! Any duct tape or chewing gum to hold everything together? :)

Re: Total Newb looking for advice

I don't have that specific hardware, so I can't say whether it works, but you may find some useful points in a little tutorial I wrote about the Scarlett 2i2 interface a few years ago. I show how I got it working on Audacity, then later with JACK and Ardour. Lots of screenshots. Definitely aimed at ...

Re: Gayageum a music instrument

I've seen her videos before, and she's great. That instrument is really expressive, and lends itself really well to guitar music with lots of pitch bending and vibrato. On the subject of unusual covers of rock music, this reminds me of my favorite version of Smells Like Teen Spirit, performed in cla...

Welcome to the forum! We're glad you're here.

I have a similar setup, although I don't use any hardware synths.

Re: Monogatari 02

This is a very nice atmosphere. It has movement and energy, but is gentle at the same time. A nice sequel to the other track.

Re: Last song produced on old computer - made with Ardour and Rakarrack

I used to be a big fan of The Smiths back in the day, and I remember working the grill at McDonald's when I was a teenager singing "Meat is Murder" to myself. Good times. :lol:

Re: Flight Guarantee EP - electro-punk / art-pop

It is my recording studio, just used for recording/mixing/mastering. My music is mostly guitar and vocals, rock and folk. Some electro as well. The room had an unpleasant reverberation until I added the wall hangings. Now it has a more pleasant resonance. But I am not an expert on acoustics. Maybe m...

Re: Good melody

My friend and I are producing an album together and it looks pretty good. I do vocals and write lyrics, she takes care of most of the instrumentation; it's going well. The problem is that neither of us can write a good melody. So what exactly is going well? :lol: Also, give us more info. What genre...

Re: Vocal Melody

Go outside and go running. I get some of my best musical ideas during exercise. YMMV, of course. :) Also, I find that this is a place where a lot of people struggle. If you don't feel comfortable or confident in arranging lyrics, then it is usually easy for the listener to hear awkwardness in your a...
