He has a handful of songs I really like, his slower stuff is trash and that seems to be the majority of his output.

These two I bump with zero irony.

And I bust this out on road trips or house parties just to see reactions.

I'll also toss out, Vans by The Pack is low key conscious rap.

Anyone think this little run from Chrono Trigger was directly influenced by this part in this Sun Ra song? Couldn't find any mentions of it anywhere.

That was my main observation, but if there are any other songs you've heard a strange influence from, post them.

Hello guys,

My friend lent me a Shure Beta 58A he doesn't use anymore. So I bought a Focusrite Scarlett as an audio interface to record myself doing voices (from audiobook style to goofy cartoony voices).

But the recordings don't sound much good.

For example if at some point my voice goes from casual to loud or especially high-pitched (god forbid if it's both at the same time) I will have truly immense spikes which sound awful and even reach the max volume limit on Audacity.

Then again I'm talking into the microphone which is merely sitting on my desk. I guess the sounds leak and bounce off everywhere instead of being targeted and properly canalized into the microphone.

Things are quiet here but I can have some very mild faint white noise too. Isn't that unavoidable though?

So, what is it I need to change? I did search it up but there are so many different setups and I need to adapt to what I already own as well. Especially since this mic is supposed to be really good.

My budget can be flexible so long as I can get something which could give a professional vibe. Also is there software or Audacity plugins/settings I should be using?

Sounds like maybe the input volume on your interface is too high or something. A pop shield will also help with more professional-sounding recordings.

Slap a compressor on that shit, play with an EQ vocal preset, add light reverb, and limit the hell out of it. Cut some bass out unless you want that local radio vibe

Cheaper interfaces (like the Focusrite you have) sound much better at lower gain levels. Two of the main cost cutting methods manufacturers use are crappy power supplies and line level circuits that distort well before their clipping point. Combine this with the "record it hot" mentality of today and you have a recipe for very thin, gross sounding audio. Don't be afraid if your peak levels are around -12, -20 dbFS, or even lower. Noise is inevitable: gross transistor/opamp distortion is not. Digital gain is often cleaner than analog gain in all but the most expensive professional gear.

Give a serious look into studio acoustics. For V/O work, reflections are bad. Invest in some absorption. The best price/performance upgrade you can do is buy some Owens Corning 703 or Roxul equivalent insulation, wrap it in burlap, and toss it in the corner. Look up "DIY acoustic panel" for more ideas.

Try backing away from the mic a bit, maybe raise it up a bit and angle it down towards your mouth. This will help level things out a bit and remove some low end boom/piercing high end. If this isn't enough, try using a shelf EQ to remove the ultra highs and lows. Shelves are a lot better than filters 9 times out of 10 because the math is less complicated. A "gentle" 6 dB/octave high-pass filter can actually INCREASE peak level.

If a tiny bit of reverb sounds good, go for it. Stick with small/medium room type algorithms. Compression is what will make or break things, though. A pretty common technique is to use 2 compressors in series. The first has a slower attack/release time, gentle ratio, soft knee, and fairly low threshold. This smooths out the overall levels. The second compressor has much faster time constants, a steeper ratio, but a more conservative threshold. Just enough to chop off the remaining peaks.

Pretty much what they said

I think you can get Reaper for free. They'll remind you to send them 60$ once in a while, but you can still continue using it.
If you use Linux, there's Ardour, but as far as I know, you don't have a sequencer and it's kind of a pain in the ass to make it work perfectly.

I'm looking for new free synth vst to try, do you guys have any recs?

I used one called Crysalis a couple of years ago for the KVR one synth challenge. It was pretty cool, my thoughts were like, if I didn’t have all the same ground covered by better paid synths I probably would use it.

Anyone interested on creating a 420chan group on snupps to share our physical music collections with each other? It seems like a pretty cool site. It does seem a bit instagrammie but you can make groups and only see stuff from that group.

I wired 4 delays into eachother with note sensitivity so that each note was feedbacking after the initial note but before the next note and automated them to make the level of simulation rise to about 95% of an infinite amount of feedback, simulating the sound of two pianos slowly rising to 95% percent of an infinite amount of pianos all playing perfectly in time with eachother and I know of nothing else that sounds like it, I believe I may have invented a new genre.

>>452475 has a point I think it sounds like reverb caused by an artificial feedback loop you made.

Hey hey,
this is your dj here Complet Blanc
Ready to set the tone for a number of gigs starting on the 24th of November at Paloma and Dillon, famous dance clubs located in the island of north, Iceland. Many of them were made in collab with a great friend and college of mine, Moxazza.

The word out is that he was taking pressed Xanax bars that contained fentanyl. There's a video of him the day before his death popping bars and stating "I just took 6 Xanax. I'm not sick. I'm good."
I've seen two or three videos with him dead one of which was >>452436

The dude was very candid about his depression and drug addiction. This isn't a shock, but it's still tragic.

You can't get it. "My life isn't good and it's only downhill from here". That's why you do it. Reality becomes warped and fucked up and you want to die. Sometimes reality really is like that and you're right and sometimes your brain is where the warped and fucked up comes from and usually it's a bit of both. You can't understand the decision for most suicides because they're not rational, they're based on assumptions and facts which are only true for the person killing themselves. Now if someone gets to 85 and has early stage dementia and kills themselves while they're still them that might be considered rational, and maybe there's a grey area. But this guy was 21 and famous. His decision didn't make sense to you or me. It can't do because we don't know what went through his head except that he was sure shit was awful and not getting better when he did it.

Or it was an accident.

It's tragic that he died young, it's tragic he suffered like that and really it's tragic that he's far from the only one. Least he got fucked up and had at least a little fun.
