I feel like new popular hip-hop these days gets a bad rap(no pun intended) stuff, all I ever hear anyone say when I start talking about hip hop is "oh rap was only good in the 90s Wu tang, Tupac all this new shit is gay as fuck." And a lot of it is, but I feel like people write most of the stuff coming out before they give it a chance or listen to it at all. I feel like hip-hop is having a renaissance right now. I think it's been pretty stagnant for a while and it's branching out into all sorts of different directions, now.

Anyways, I don't really like Lil Uzi Vert, but I can't stop playing this song:

Dude! my next door neighbour used to LOVE oc remix and he played me this song which was fucking amazing, cant remember what it was but some of the things they did were amazing. I think it migtve been some remix from kingdom hearts or something? like the video game with mickey mouse and the final fantasy dudes?

its been so long. or maybe it was resident evil or something? is that still what they do on oc remix? remix video game music?

I am not a musician, but i dick around with a keyboard / daw sometimes.
I discovered these notes combine really well for a morbid / ominous sound. (picture related)
Is this an actual scale / mode?
As much information as possible is helpful, thanks.

I agree with the last sentiment, and really when I play or compose something I just go by ear, as that is the final say. Theory can hold you back in a lot of ways, but it can also help you understand what you just did, and help you find new openings and paths to explore, where you can use your own innate rhythms and ear to create something your own.

I'm just going to think of modal music as more arbitrary, and just 'random' rules established to serve the mode as you said, whether that mode is a ceremony of sorts, or whatever. The mode more reflects the culture and their way of life, a mode of living. Or maybe that's too off the deep end and missing every point.

OP, you've stumbled across a wonderful series of notes. It goes by many names and has been used in a variety of musics for a long ass time.

Jews know it as "Ahavah Rabah" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_prayer_modes)
Muslims know it as "Maqam Hijaz" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_maqam)
The Berklee Method calls it "Mixolydian b9 b13 chord scale" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berklee_method)
And most music composers and scholars (like myself, look at my penis), just call it Phrygian Dominant, Freygish, or simply the fifth mode of the harmonic scale. Some Jazz Musicians call it "2 flat 6" according to wikipedia, but I've never heard that. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_dominant_scale)

I cannot in good faith let you come to believe this. Tonal music implies the common-practice harmonic theory established in the 17th and 18th centuries (roman numeral sequence of tonal fuctional harmony: I-iii-vi-VI-ii-V/vii*-I), whereas modal music doesn't apply functional harmony as we know it in tonality.

ctrl f
harmonic dominant
phrase not found

yeah it's the fifth scale of the f harmonic minor scale. if you start on c. resolves to f minor generally, maybe tritone sub to b major but that sounds like a bad idea

I've always thought to teach harmony and improv from the understanding of the connection between modes and chords, because that's where chord progressions come from. when a song stays in a key it is using chords built in that key for the most part. deviations are implied key changes or sort of retrospective chord changes that make use of the fact that the chords exist in different keys. sharps and flats get added one black key at a time when moving up fourths or fifths.

major chords are built on alternating major thirds and minor thirds, minor chords are built on alternating minor thirds and major thirds, augmented have only major thirds, diminished have only minor thirds.

there's also other scales like chromatic(all of the notes), whole tone(all whole steps), symmetrical diminished and symmetrical dominant(which alternate between whole steps and half steps or vice versa).

What DMW do you use for music production? I'm new to it, but have been playing around in FL studio, recently, I decided to take a course on Ableton Live 9 which starts next week since they had a heavy discount on it..
I've asked a few people and they say lots that they like Ableton but looking into it, I was checking tutorials and all of the videos were made by people on macs.. I admit I am very judgemental when it comes to macs because they have limited options as well as for programs, so it made me wonder if this is mostly just popular for "limited mac users" which kills the whole interest for me.. So what program/s do you use? And why? Have you tried any other? Why do you prefer the one you're using and would you recommend Ableton?

I use Ableton and I love it, mainly because of how much it's geared towards being able to actually perform your tracks live. I use a PC and it's exactly the same, I've just noticed that electronic musicians in general tend to use macs for their music computers.

I started with FL studio and I think it's a great way to get introduced to making electronic music, but if you're already going to take a course for Ableton I'd say give it a serious shot because it's awesome, especially with such cool MIDI controllers made specifically for Ableton like the Push for creating tracks, and the APC40 for performing tracks. Look into some videos about those controllers if you haven't already.

But I personally have had a great experience with Ableton's Simpler tool. It's really gud for warping your own original sounds and turning them into musical sounds if you don't feel like using pre-created drum sounds or synths, and it's also beautiful for slicing breakbeats and stuff. The new Push has a way on fluently controlling Simpler specifically which is why I would really love to have one. The less you use a mouse and keyboard and the more you just use knobs, buttons, & sliders, the more fun the experience is IMO.

What's some musical gear you guys have? Gear you guys want? Current guitar? Dream guitar? Anything that makes electronic beep boops? Whatever it is, post it.

I'm recently just getting back into playing guitar after taking way too long of a break and I think I'm gonna invest in a new one when tax time comes soon. Well, not really a "new" guitar, but one of these old Harmonys from the late 60s/early 70s. In fact, I think I may start collecting a few of the cheaper Japanese guitars made around this time. The Kays, Silvertones, Teistos, etc. Just love the body styles of these things. Plus I can't think of anything much better as a nice, cheap project guitar.

I knew a guy that had one of these that kept it around to play garage rock/fuzz stuff on, and it sounded great for what it was. Like, surprisingly great as long as you're running it through a good tube amp. I'm not positive but I believe the pickups are microphonic. Which definitely isn't much of a desirable thing these days, but it just has a really distinct, warm tone and a nice twangy sound to it. Plus it's cheap as fuck and you can find them pretty commonly. Really excited to get one of these stupid cheapo things.

I was considering buying one of the Squier Jaguars for a good garage sound, but considering how much cheaper this is I really don't think I can pass it up. The Jaguar is obviously the better and more desirable of the two, without question, but considering I'm really fond of this one and can pretty much get it for pocket change, I think I'll be making the right move. I still definitely want the Jaguar though. I'll have to pick it up down the line.

Also gonna pick up an Orange Mini Dark and turn my current solid state combo into a cabinet for it, and I'll likely pick up a BOSS DS-1 pedal, unless someone can recommend any better of a distortion pedal for around the same price. Music on the cheap is best music, mah bois.

Damn right, pissing off hot neighbors with your own music. Emotionally moving people to anger and suffering through sound!

Go to the Lowes and buy a 4x4, cut it down to like 4-6 inches long and place them in an array under a piece of thick plywood. Place rolls of insulation under it and place your drums on top of the plywood. Be sure to bolt the 4x4's tot he plywood too.

Electronic kits are very loud when connected to vibrating or transferring surfaces. Sitting your kit on a mini stage that is sitting on top of a bunch of insulation will effectively silence it for people in adjacent rooms.

Another method is to buy 2 large pieces of plywood, drill aligning grids of 2 inch holes in both. Place plywood #1 on top of some strategically placed hockey pucks, put tennis balls in the holes, and place plywood #2 on top. Tennis balls absorb most of the vibrations, hockey pucks take care of the rest. If you don't have a vehicle big enough for the plywood, just put hockey pucks under everything. Not quite as effective, but still makes a huge difference.

Does anyone know what the drum being played in this track is? On the wikipedia article for this album Ken Winokur is credited for "percussion" on it, and Ken Winokur is apparently a member of this group that does film scores (Alloy Orchestra) but I couldn't track down exactly what instruments he uses or what this could be. I love it though.

This is the album it's from, great music from a great band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWKYxhyKja4

I'm also very interested in percussion instruments in general, especially drums, so share cool things if you feel like it
