Soundcloud, Bandcamp and so on?

Everything, but mostly chill-hop, electronic, hip-hop, epic or anything thats good.

Nothing that requires a sign-up.

Ektoplazm is an absolute treasure trove of free music if you like psy genres. Have to wade through a lot of generic stuff (IMO) to find what resonates with you but according to the front page they have ~25 million albums so chances are pretty fuckin good they'll have something you like. A couple of my personal favourites I've found there (for context I tend to lean toward more slow/groovy music with strong/detailed soundscapes, but that isn't actually purely ambient):

Krusseldorf - Fractal World
>ambient techno vibe, glitchy, very detailed, one of my all time favourite albums tbh

Floating Planet - Fractal Wortex
>very nice EP that synthesizes of psychill and rock

Akara - The World Beyond
>beautiful synthesis of psychill and classical, although their first album was more heavy on the electronic whereas this one is more light-touch and leans more strongly to classical, I actually prefer this one (their first album is not available for free here but it can be purchased on their Bandcamp), took me a little bit to get used to the fake language vocals but once I got over that hump it really feels transcendent

And some other free stuff I really like that's not from Ektoplazm:

Archive - Londinium
>while this probably shouldn't technically be hosted here and available for free, this is possibly my #1 favourite album of all time. one of the great somewhat unsung masterpieces of trip hop

Balancé - Good balance for all
>somewhat amateurish but fun almost poppy psychill, second track is very catchy, last track is great and has French vocals

The Polish Ambassador - Pushing Through The Pavement
>hip hop album, nice electronic beats and good variety throughout, couple tracks are misses imo but some are great

Desktop speakers and general sound hardware thread

I'm looking to buy new good quality desktop speakers. The current ones I have are wonderful (pic related), they're a The Creative Labs CSW250 SoundWorks Digital model, but their age is starting to show, I guess (the volume controller died and there are problems with a few of the subwoofer sockets, so I have to use my audio interface for that). Maybe I should just get them fixed?

I tried searching, but apparently I need to spend atleast 200-300 euros for quality. What is it with the price/quality ratio in sound hardware? Apparently in lower price ranges the quality rises significantly. I never understood it.

e.g. why should I pay 70 additional euros for, say, a pair of audio technica ath-m50x headphones when the m40's are good enough? Is the sound difference actually that big and worth it? Or am I just retarded

Anyways, what speakers are you using? Any recommendations?

Thanks and SLAYER

Not sure what model they are but I have two pairs of Sony tower speakers I got like 8 years ago(around 200 a pair) and they sound pretty damn good. Plus you can lean on them so you look cool while listening to music.

Beat track featuring multiple emulated VL-1's. It's an old track I had thrown together one night, and after struggling to come up with a satisfying melody that begins towards the end of the song, I eventually gave up on it.

Post any questions you have about music production in this thread.

Can someone explain to me how to connect a drum machine to FL Studio? I have the cable that connects them through usb. It's an Akai mini play. I have not done this before and I not very familiar with DAW either.

I'm not sure what you are asking about here. Do you have a hardware drum machine, or do you think the Akai is a drum machine?

Install the drivers for the Akai (if it have any drivers), and check if it comes up in the settings in FL.

Oh that thing actually have onboard sounds too, so you have to connect the audio output to your soundcard if you gonna use them (don't)

They are probably shit so just use it as a midi controller.

What do you think the next big thing will be? I think music will become much more hybridized due to the connection of the internet. Maybe we'll see amalgational music. Like rock with a rapper but also some jazz chords thrown in with lots of synths and electronica

As of popular music, it's probably gonna be all merged with porn or something. It's all about image and very little about music anyway.

Everything has pretty much been done at this point. I imagine it will just be morphing of different genres or rehashing the same old shit. Unless we start venturing into more avant-garde stuff like microtonal music or atonal music I don't see a whole lot of change occurring.

I'm kind of tempted to just start making mumble rap and get rich quick. All you got to do is make some variant of woofer cooker, a rapid quantized hi-hat tick, and just mush mouth some shit about materialism and suddenly every black, hispanic, and white 13-30 year old is just head over heels. I'm not a typical hater of the new sounds and all but there is literally zero redeemable qualities about this shit. I don't even understand it on any level at all. Yet I can go to my yuppie 89% white local college town where it is a bunch of faggy white boys wearing sperries, a north face jacket, and bermuda shorts and they'll be blasting some mumble rap in their 7 foot tall GMC Sierra.

I was watching that Punk Rock MBA guy and he compared brokncyde to modern mumble rap and it wasn't far off.

I posted to this thread, years ago with this project
And received a lot of love and support for some really bad songwriting. I can’t appreciate that, and this community enough.

Last year I finished a new project, and it made me reflect on what’s influenced me over the last few years. Though I’m a long-lapsed user of 420chan, I thought I’d reach out one more time to share with you, the music I’ve been able to make in the wake of all the love and support this community showed me nearly 6 years ago.


With all love, respect, and sincerity,

Hello, fellow weirdos. Do you make music and want it to sound better? Post it here and I'll master it. 24 bit FLAC files are best. Bandcamp links are cool as long as I don't have to pay for it. Been doing this for 20 years and absolutely hate how unsincere most professional work is. The best music is free, and I want freedom to sound as good as possible.

If you're really serious about sound quality, do the following before uploading:
1) Remove any non-creative effects from the master bus. Things like static EQ, compression, and limiting
2) Make sure you aren't clipping
3) Use flat TPDF dither

If there's any real interest, I'll make a Bandcamp to upload the finished products. Don't like what I did to your tunes? That's fine, just tell me and I'll remove it. Therm0, let me know if this would be breaking any rules or if you have any ideas.

That attitude is holding you back. Can't say I'm surprised, most young artists who get signed have similar levels of arrogance that costs them their contract. Best of luck to you.

I love you.

Spent 5 days in detox for benzos and alcohol, blew a .45 and had 12mg of xanax in my system, if I wasn't taken to the ER every doctor there told me I would've died. Apparently I told them it was a suicide attempt, so I spent 7 days after that in in-patient, which I probably needed because had they released me then I would've relapsed with-in an hour, but they gave me Ativan the whole time to taper me off and now I'm 1 day into a partial hospitalization program.

I had no cravings and was resolved to kick it for good, then everything kept pouring back into my mind, all the memories all the good times, all the drugs, the best days of my life spent high, nodding, tripping, and rolling with people I'll never see again, some of whom died, and that along with withdrawal and mania keeping me up at night to the point I sleep a few hours every other night, I want to use more than I ever have. The only reason I didn't today was because there was 6 inches of snow and I'd have to walk to meet the man.

It really is true that once a junky always a junky. I know I'll relapse. And even if I don't, I can be in recovery the rest of my life and never truly kick it. It'll always be looming over me. You can't unring the bell.
