So there's this old cyberpunk film, Nemesis (1991), and a guy I used to know swore someone had sampled a line from it in a techno song.

I've found two bands called "Speedloader", and one of them had a song called "Fuckin' Speedloader", but the sample wasn't in the song.
Admittedly, this friend was an acid casualty, and possibly autistic, and used to make a lot of shit up, but if the song exists in that form I'd like to hear it.

This is my friend who took me under her wing and taught me pop music production, but I generally make Skinny Puppy-style Electro-Industrial.
Before this project, she focused mostly on ghostwriting for various European labels and DJs, and this is her debut single under a new name.
I was hired to help write the lyrics, but she made quite a lot of rewrites; nevertheless I'm satisfied with her final result. Hope you guys like it.

Thread for discussing Black Metal bands that offer more than the juvenile "raahg SATAN!" they may have atheist or existential themes like Mgla, Nachtystium,YAITW, Drag into Sunlight or bands that have a bit of fun with cosmic or Lovecraftian themes like Inquisition, I like some of the more melodic bands that have started focusing more on folklore like Satanic Warmaster, and Drowning the Light, I'm a sucker for The synth voice Starfall pic related.

Yea, okay.

Also stop being a pussy. Why listen to black metal and then try and act like some pompous hipster faggot that you don't agree with aggressive lyric content or socially unacceptable themes. I wish all you Seattle types would get the fuck out of Black Metal. Black Metal is meant to be as far removed from trends, conformity, social approved ideologies, and tolerance as possible. It is a genre based around complete and pure misanthropy.

I mean what exactly are you getting at? Inquisition can't play in some countries due to their nazi associations. Satanic Warmaster is really close to lots of the NSBM scene, he may even be part of it. I'll never understand people who want to get into a genre of music that is extreme and then try and warp it around some weird thing that is completely out of place in the genre. It is like trying to make unblack metal or make rock songs about how cool Jesus is because he has long hair like a rawkstar and wore sandals like a hippie would have or some stupid shit.

You do realize you can listen to music in the year 2017 without supporting the band. It isn't like you can understand anyone anyways.

Stop trying to pussify metal. I've had enough of you hipster turds fucking up the scene with your acceptance and love horseshit. Black metal is made for and by toxic human beings who hate the world and never got past being an angry 17 year old piece of shit. Fuck off with that. I don't go and listen to country and try and tell them to stop singing about trucks and beer and then get passive aggressive about how their lyrics are uninspired or don't accommodate me. ffs

>>452147 I think OP meant they find the screeching about Satan to be childish, rather than being offended by the lyrical content or anything like that. By singing about Satan, the songs present a theistic setting which acknowledges Christian beliefs - I think s/he's asking if there's e.g. secular black metal without the cheesy tired tropes.

Am I right in saying that in America, generic pop-country has a much larger presence on mainstream radio? I love country music but I can't even think of a song about trucks off the top of my head, though I guess there's not much country newer than the 80s I'm into

Bought a Launchpad MK2, and when I plug it in, it's actually reading as a Launchkey (midi keyboard from the same company, nowhere near the same device)

I open midi settings in Ableton, correctly choose Launchpad MK2, however in the Channels it still displays as a Launchkey, though it works for some time, it will generally either freeze, or crash altogether, and I have to restart either the DAW or my computer before it will read again. Sometimes it just crashes a USB port and it reads again once I switch, usually just to crash that one as well within a few hours.. Frustrating, bc it's supposed to be a performance tool yet it's been a headache from the beginning.. I went to Novation's site originally to get the latest drivers and triple-checked myself now making sure I didn't download the wrong one and upgraded my power supply. Also using latest Ableton version, but it's worth noting I'm on Win 7, so I'm thinking maybe time to upgrade my OS? I like it slim though,and from what I understand it's more difficult to do that as you upgrade. Currently on a laptop w/ an i5 processor so it's like, do I even want to try putting Win 8/10 on here? I've been in a cave and have no idea as to which is actually better...

Anyway, this is a snip of how it's reading in my Midi channels, if anyone's had issues with the LpadMK2 as well I'm curious to know. Also interested in performance tools, I'd like to stack onto this but my wallet atm..

So, after 5 years or so my ATH-FC707 headphones broke. Specifically the plastic parts in pic. Headphones work as before, had to resolder the wires inside the cups a couple of times due to accidentally pulling on the wire. But now I can't use them, because those plastic parts broke off and there's no way for the top part to stay steady. I'm thinking of engineering something up, but on the other hand an upgrade would be nice.

Anyways, any suggestions for headphones? Looking at the ATH-AJ55 or ATH-AVC500 models.

What do you guys use? What are your preferences?

Cheers and thanks for your replies :-)

Do not buy the m50/m50xs. . Very uncomfortable with stock pads, no sound stage, shrill highs, zero mid range and fatiguing to listen to for more than 15 minutes at a time. The best way I can describe M50s is that they are the audio-equivalent to the Three Stooges trying to cram through a doorway at the same time and getting stuck. Your eardrums are just getting blasted with pressure constantly from the bass and it muddies everything on low volume but when you turn them up to bring clarity to the sound, instead of filling things out evenly, the highs go insane and drill into your brain. For the price they're asking, they're just not worth it. The m40s are far more reasonable. M50s are by far the most overrated and over-marketed headphones on the planet.

First "real" headset i got and currently use is AKG k702, and they are pretty nice. I've read some people complain about them not being bass heavy enough, but from what I can tell that's just people not really being into the whole high fidelity thing.

So if you want something that thumps really hard regardless of whether or not it's supposed to, get something else I suppose.

I'm a guitarist, trying to find a band but I'm not a very social person, so I make music by myself with fruitloops acting as a sort of drum machine and adding industrial/techno sounds to the metal riffs, nothing special but I find it fulfilling. The thing is without other members to temper it and craft it, I just tend to snort loads of speed, ritalin, or whatever, and make drum sections and riffs and just let it go on and on with no real structure. The only times it sounds like it has an ongoing momentum are accidents, and usually just simple stuff like a kick run before going into half time. Did anyone else have similar issues and how do you learn to write songs instead of just riff collages?

That seems like a fine way to make music. But I suppose if you wanted something with more progression to it.. you could just listen for that quality? Maybe make it to a story, maybe not in the lyrics literally, but just as a way for you to structure it, for some of that "plottedness".

Maybe start mixing in some of those accidents, on purpose. If u look at your songs you'll start to note a feeling that goes along with your favorites. You've already noticed the ones that have this quality, and the ones that don't.

Aim small. Just merge 1 riff to another. Modulate the key of each riff into the same key and just play them back to back in time. Link them together with basic triads or power chords. Use simple song structures.

I found most people struggle with song writing trying to aim way too high before ever making anything beyond a riff. Amazing songs can be simple. And most complex and difficult to write is not only difficult to perform but usually doesn't connect with most people.

Also focus on listening to more music and focusing solely on song structure and layout. I had a hard time writing until I realized most songs just blunt force themselves into the next part rather than have some big overarcing and grandiose flawless transitions. Make a backing drum beat in a software, play 16 bars, another 16 bars of a slightly different beat then go back to original 16 bars. Incredibly simple but makes writing really easy as a result.

>Write 500 bad songs to know how to write a good one.

I also found writing parodies to be a really quick way to get into making songs and learning song structure. Within 10 parodies, I had solid song writing abilities. And it makes the mental part much more easy because you already know exactly where you are going.

Hey guys,

I like doing voices but when I try to do raspy voices (say Rick from Rick & Morty) my throat hurts because of the raspiness / strain.

I'm definitely doing something wrong and using the wrong technique to get that sound.
