I'm looking this jazzy, with a slight hat kicking in the back, version of stormy weather by ben webster. With vocals, that Little Dragon's version has.
Getting really frustated already here, been doing this search for hours now and internet only reckons me 1933's ''stormy weather'' different versions.

genuine jazz group with a female vocs on it, sounds something that im looking for, i've heard it somewhere, i know!
if anyone has any idea or knows how to look thru this without getting 1933's references, wud appriecate
>inb4 16bit stormy weather
its good, but not it. 16 bit's version is too fast tempod
pic semirelated, getting real desperate like my friend bill fuckin murray here, lost in the big wide world called the internet, can't find what i'm looking for

also, there's a slight chance that ben webster's 'Stormy weather' is just the original 1933's cover, so my bad misunderstanding..
but i still thoroughly believe there's a different version of vocs on that shit that isn't just Little Dragon's selfinvention and copyrights and i'm destined to find it!

I'm shopping for electric kits, lookin at these Rolands. All the modules only have this MIDI port, they don't have the MIDI usb. If I get an adapter so I can plug it into the usb port on my computer, will it successfully work as a MIDI controller for Ableton?

I just want to make sure it can do the thing I'm getting it for before I drop thousands of dollars.

Therm0 are you telling me after all these years you don't have anything that functions as a midi interface for your computer?! Are you still on ASIO4ALL for audio as well?

Seriously you need a good interface Hamigo!

5-pin MIDI cables s nod the same information that USB midi does, and those drums send Note and Velocity data. So you could trigger everything the same way, might take a little setup but you'll be fine. You can always remap or midi learn things as needed.

Saw you have all original sample based music now, I need to check that out. Are you gonna trigger your original samples with the kit?

But yeah I miss playing a drum kit but don't want to give up my infinite possibilities of electronic music so I'mma trigger original samples with my kit.

So I found this cassette of tunes I made around in 2001 on my Roland SP808ex. Gave it a master and uploaded it to youtube. I didnt even own a computer back then so I smashed out these experimental electronic beats on 4-tracks. Have a listen.

Post any original hardware sounds!

This maybe be a stupid question but how difference does a good guitar actually make? \For example I own a piece of shit classical guitar that cost about £50. It's been battered and bruised, the fretboard is worn out, the saddle has come off and I replaced it with a piece of cardboard and it's generally not that quality an instrument.

The thing is it still sounds pretty nice and I reckon if I was better at guitar I could make it sound really nice. I just have a hard time imagining that a better guitar would sound that much better certainly not 40 times better at any rate.

If you're talking about electric guitars, the pickups are all that matters; you can buy a piece of shit Squier and stick some nice pickups in it and it will sound great. But with acoustic guitars, the construction of the body does have an effect on the sound. But what sounds good and what sounds shitty can be pretty subjective. Unless you've become like a really good player, you shouldn't feel limited by the value of the instrument you're using.

Honestly, the only reason professional musicians buy expensive guitars instead of shitty starter ones isn't because of the sound, but because they are more durable and reliable and having your guitar fuck up because of shoddy wiring and cheap materials in the middle of a show is a nightmare.
Wesley Siblingdock - Fri, 18 Nov 2016 11:52:39 EST ID:P8DHRXMO No.447658 Ignore Report Quick Reply
I'd say most big time pro's buy expensive shit either because it is free and they are endorsed or because they get what they need. Either way, I don't think any working musician besides those dive bar types play without a backup. I sure as fuck never would. Even still, the guitar aspect isn't where you really have to worry. The only 2 things I'm considered about when playing is breaking strings or fucked up cables. From there, an amp shitting out would be about the only concern. I've never seen and rarely heard of a guitar internals failing instantly. It is usually a slow process with signs before complete failure. Acoustics rarely ever just fall to pieces unless they get melted glue from sitting in a 140 degree car.

Shitty cables and broken strings are the absolute worst thing ever. Only blown out of the water of importance by a shitty player.

>Gear isn't the issue. It is your skill.

I've got 2 clones of my guitar, snare, hats and ride. Soon I plan to have 2 cloned drum pedals. I need a backup amp though. If mine shat out during a show, I'd be fucked if the venue didn't have one and I couldn't plug into their mixer or soundboard or whatever they are using. This doesn't have to be as costly as it seems either. I can go to a pawnshop and get 2 Jackson clones for 180 bucks each all day and they will be solid after setting them up properly and checking all the internals.

>I again repeat, Gear isn't the issue. It is your skill. Yngwie can shred the fuck out of a Squire and Kollias can melt a Ddrum kit. Both will sound amazing on shit gear. They will sound better on awesome gear but gear has little to do with what you can and can't play.

>PRACTICE MORE! There are no shortcuts. Put the fucking time in if you want to be good. Dedication and discipline separate the men from the boys.

As far as electric I've really only ever played cheapo Chinese ones. Never had major problems, the only real difference is that one that cost $500 vs. $100 would be the intonation across the entire fretboard. With most guitars I don't really hear or feel the difference between a $800 and $4000 guitar. The $4000 one usually just looks prettier with albalony inlay decorations, is a 60 y/o vintage, or had a famous previous owner.
Several hundred would be my limit for a guitar, since I don't see the advantage of more expensive ones.

electric v. acoustic is a big deal in this case

for an electric, the amp and the pickups are the most important. the bridge too. you can buy a shit guitar and swap out the hardware and it will very nice with an electric. also, most electric guitar pricing is based on total bullshit. like, american vs. mexican strats have a huge price difference, but are the same thing, not to mention they are probably still being made by mexicans in a factory when they're made in the us. electric guitar has a lot of brand name marketing disinfo surrounding it, if you have a tube amp and your guitar wasn't manufactured by chinese slave labor it's probably fine

with an acoustic , the difference between a cookie cutter yamaha starter guitar and a handcrafted classical guitar made by a real luthier is a huge difference. my friend has a really nice classical guitar and the clearness and resonance of the notes is incredible, mine sounds dull in comparison

tl;dr: try before you buy. do blind tests if you can
