Yeah check out those places where hopeful composers make game soundtracks anyone can use if they give credit. I forget the sites, check the Unity forums or something

como las flores que esconde el lodo.
Una mirada no dice nada

Una verdad no dice nada

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..

Headphones? by Eugene Summershit - Wed, 09 Aug 2017 06:20:52 EST ID:5Nlc3HVi No.451158 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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.

Yeah, the M50s are overkill anyways, ain't paying 170 euros for headphones.

Might just get the M40s

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.

Also, stuff like motifs. You can put elements of the song into other sections, like a melody in the verse, is in the bass in the chorus, etc.

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.

Any advice on that?

I this modern hyper information age I find myself hearing so much fresh music all the time. So much so, listening to local djs on the radio and others, as well as my own individual choices, that I may even hear a lot of really good tunes only once.

Its like culture is accelerating. From the limited tapes and CDs you may have had as a kid, to the rapid availability of anything you want. Instantly!

I think this can be both good and bad.

What do you think?

If you look closely, it is attached by two adjustable bolts it seems, that can modify the angle formed between the shoulder and the bottom surface of the violin. It is distinct in that it doesnt have attachment arms / grips
