Yeah pick a DAW that sounds right for you and mess around with it. Watch some youtube tutorials and read the manual.

Ableton Live is good for live jamming capabilities.

Basically I've been getting into neofolk/martial industrial
I've liked what I've heard by DiJ, Tenhir, Blood Axis, Naevus, Empyrium and Sol Invictus, but I'm left wishing there was a bit more of a middle ground - it's either mainly acoustic and folk-sounding or extremely industrial/angry like martial industrial. I want to try and find melancholic/dark/sinister neofolk with more usage of industrial synths/sounds/beats without taking away from the "folky" feel - sorry if that's a completely unhelpful summary. For comparison's sake I'd say Siouxsie and the Banshees - Cities in Dust is a good example, it's got nice melodies, cold industrial/darkwave percussion and sounds, acoustic and electric guitars and bass giving it a nice post-punk rythm and underpinning. Maybe a little heavier/angrier/sadder than S&TB though

thanks for any help, I know I haven't made it easy lol

or tbh just closer to Children of God era Swans, just occurred to me that that's the best actual neofolk album to use for comparison

I'm going to throw Agalloch out there because it's been a while since the last person who got recommended them had a shit fit at the greatness. It's black metal rather than industrial but it's got the neofolk thing (in varying degrees per song).

It's not what you are looking for but it might scratch your itch. Or maybe not.

i have been making beats and electronic music on my computer for nearly 10 years. this whole time, i have been using the exact same setup: fl studio, with me manually putting in every note using a mouse or trackpad. it takes me at least a month, or even three months or more, for me to finish a track. i don't like how long it takes, and i'm wondering if my setup has something to do with it.

advice? most other electronic musicians i know either use a midi controller a lot, or they use hardware music technologie. i can't afford a lot of synths, but i could probably get a midi controller to use. so i would like to know if using one of those could help, and if so, what would be a good starter option.

Arturia Keystep man. It has a built in sequencer and arpeggiator and is just a solid controller for only 125 bucks.

Other than that, pawn shops are great because idiots buy midi controllers thinking they're keyboards and sell them because they don't have any sounds preloaded. I got an Axiom 25 for 25 bucks that way.

Take everything I said back. I didn't read the most recent post and if a keyboard is not what you want, the keystep isn't gonna work lol.

The Axiom 25 I mentioned might actually be more up your alley. It's got 6 velocity sensitive pads, but they don't make it anymore. You can get it for a good deal used if you look around.

The 8 hour 12xLP box set has finally arrived. This will probably forever be the best thing in my collection. Did anyone else get this and how is the condition? Some people had warped sleeves or missing vinyls. Mine all seems good physically, don't know if there are any audio fuckups on it though.

And on a non Autechre note, anyone purchase anything else interesting recently or just feel like showing off their collection?

That's not bad. Most of the Autechre LPs I come across that are in good condition are like 100 + dollars and I am not rich. It sucks because if I ever wanted to specifically complete a collection of a particular artist, it would be Autechre. Of course that is usually for factory sealed or near mint versions, and it's not the sort of thing I just run into in the record stores in my area either. Zappa would be nice too. Both have such a deep world of sound to dive into as well as fantastic variety. I typically only get something on vinyl if it's something I super especially like though. Com Truise is pretty awesome and there are probably a couple I'd like to own. One thing that's weird is I love Pink Floyd but most of the Syd Barret stuff never actually satisfied me. It's not that it's bad it's just that I never really got any feeling from his stuff and I almost feel bad about that lol. I don't know, it's been years since I've even heard it so maybe I'd appreciate some of it now. But I suppose I tend to listen to music more for its sound than music with lyrical content, and Pink Floyd definitely got more interesting sound-wise after the Barrett years imo.

I did get the repress bundle of Autechre's first 3 LPs that Warp released a year or two ago. I've also got a copy of Draft 7.30 that I bought from Discogs because that album has one of my favorite songs of all time (surripere). I've also got the classic Brain Salad Surgery with the Giger art. Giger was fuckin awesome, man. A few other favorites are The Fragile Deviations by NIN, which is an instrumental version of The Fragile plus a bunch of extra recordings never put on the original. There's Dynamics / The Planets by Dom & Roland, just some random drum n bass from the 90's but The Planets was always an impressive track to me because of the drums. Working With Sound by Hive which is one of my favorite 90's downtempo / trip hop sort of albums. I've got the Earthworm Jim soundtrack, Rain Temple by 2814 which my old roommate got me for my birthday one year. And another absolute favorite is this 7" vinyl by Toy which has Rabbit Pushing Mower on it and some other track I forgot. It's a nice little bright orange disk.

Also have a few vaporwave cassettes, and a couple cassettes from 420chan /m/usicians like Big River Dream and _whtspce. And there's this glorious noise album on mini CD, Hey Babe, Let Me See Your USB And I'll Show You My Firewire, by Massimo. The cover art is great.

Well colour me even more jealous!

Didnt expect emerson lake and palmer though. Giger was and amazing artist.
I have a few cassettes from local bands, i dont have a cassette player though so i never really go out of my way to get them i mostly buy them to help the band out monetarily.
Ive never heard of Massimo or Hive before so ill check them out.
Zappa would be so difficult to get a complete collection of.

I like to think there is three pink floyds. pink floyd when syd was in the band was a totally different thing without him, and then punk floyd is something totally different without waters.

I think the cool thing about contemporary society is we can listen to an album before we decide to actually purchase it. like i didnt buy any wings records until i heard band on the run ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOIBvvcG5Vo ) then from there i kept liking the albums and then i just kept buying them.
Im pretty poor most of the time so i cant always get the best quality stuff but here is some more of my collection.
I would say im probably closer to a complete pink floyd collection too. my dark side of the moon is absolute trash though, i need to jetison it. i bought it before they began repressing it.
Here are some more random things. i have a 7inch Alan Parsons record that has been signed... wasnt worth it at all but i got it when i was on a huge alan parsons binge.
Blue Brothers was one of the first records i ever bought and probably one of the best records ive ever bought. Admittedly i bought the Santana album purely because the artwork was done by Robert Venosa, but the album actually has some good songs on it.

Judge my one shot

You know what this world reminds me of? The Jim Jones suicide cult. That's what I think this has all come to. I think you all will drink the cool-aid, and go along with the censorship, and they'll take away all of your rights but you'll all be too afraid to do anything. And you'll end up taking the cool-aid beause (well jeeze, everyone else is doing it! They're gunna make me do it anyways, I practically have to!) You're all the type of people to get herded into a gas chamber when there's only 20 guards. Because the most important thing is people control everyones mind through fear, even though the ruling elite is always a minority, they control people through their base instincts and make them lambs for the slaughter. I can see you all for what you are.


Keep reading buzz-feed and listening to CNN, they're leading up to something truly epic!

Post your youtube channel if you have one (and if it has anything to do with music).

Also, what is the best platform to have your music at? I used bandcamp and soundcloud, but I feel like these platforms are a bit too circlejerky between musicians and that you can't really reach the actual people on them. I decided to put my newest stuff on youtube since it's the platform that everybody is so used to and feels more natural, but I don't know if it's the best place to put my stuff.

Is there any social media popular musician in here? Can you share a few tips about how to promote your shit without being obnoxious?

I like YouTube over SoundCloud because I don't have to pay to have infinite upload space, so it's good for random throw away tracks that don't fit anywhere or are just for shits and giggles that you don't necessarily want on your more """"""serious""""" bandcamp page. I like Bandcamp still because of it's organization, and it's good for more polished, complete things like EPs or albums, but I kinda know what you mean about the musician circlejerk thing. But for anyone moderately successful with their music, bandcamp seems to definitely be much more than that.

You didn't post yours btw.

Hey, what up, thermo? It's Totty/TPG here. Damn, you can make and play some mean breakbeats, man. I also roflmao'd at "shon audio engineer" although I didn't even know about this podcast until now. You've been making stuff for this podcast?

I've been planning a new game: Mary Jane & Keef in so high on salvia they forgot how to walk. It's gonna be a little like octodad but with maryjane the dog rolling around. Anyway, when I get something done I'm gonna hit you up. Maybe you won't need to make anything new, since there's stuff on your bandcamp that's perfect for Mary Jane & Keef in so high on salvia they forgot how to walk (the title is a work in progress too).

Oh yeah, and here's my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCw18_ZMvfuyTXFJE_QBBd8A

Eh, I love punk and I love folk but I don't like folk punk, the Pogues excluded. I also don't like this tendency that people have to conflate folk with folk punk.

Case in point. This is not folk music. This is punk. Let me post some actual fucking folk music.

Klezmer (this is the shit)



I play the fiddle and piano accordion, mainly Irish, Russian and Klezmer music.

I have a party coming up that i don't have a playlist for. God man, its been years since i made a serious playlist. All my music is out of date or too chill for the party. there'll be like 40-50 people. Lotsa random nerds, got no clue what they are into so i guess it's gotta be stuff everyone likes but i got nothing like that.

You guys got any advice for making playlists for parties? it's moving so slowly.

Honestly chill music works. All the uppity people will just be talking over the music anyway. And the recluses will be looking to a refuge to chill.
A bit of dancibility is nice too but you can't force that.

I'd say put of 'chill lofi hip hop beats to study and relax to' while things get warmed up. But leave the device open (unless it's gonna get stolen) someone will eventually change it to whatever the mood is

Lmao. I mean say what you want about the end product but all the djs I linked above are doing a lot more than any dj spinning rap I've ever listened to. I'd love to be proven wrong though.

Here's my favorite dj set with a lot of rap. It's actually a great party mix, although it has some rough spots and overall the selection isn't quite what I like.
