Hello, I'll try my best to keep this brief as I'm currently stimming the obtuse flying sideways fuck out my head at the moment.

I'm looking for a specific sort of VST effect for use in DAWs, in my case FL Studio 12. I'm hoping that someone reading this may know of anything specific regarding VST effect plugins that could be used to add some "realism" or some uh, "naturalness...?" to plugins that output individual sound samples, such as, for example, that FPC plugin in FL that outputs drum samples.

I'm only a hobbyist when it comes to music, fully electronic/digital or otherwise, and I assume there's plenty of people out there that dislike FL for understandable reasons. So I hope you can pardon this, if FL doesn't personally jive for you and your own methods/preferences/tastes. Anyways, so I have these default drum sample packs, and I think they're quite nice, however when it comes to songs that use rather repetitive rhythms in particular, I find the final sound result of my percussion, backing my recorded acoustic/guitar, (routed through a physical 8-channel mixer to FL's digital mixer though my computer's sound card, through ASIO, yada yada FLYING FUCK why wasn't that blow cut to shit as usual this is unexpectantly ridiculous) ..The drum sample output ends up sounding quite artificial in contrast to the sound of my physical guitar recording.

At current, I simply began to experiment more with layering various effects and carefully adjusting all the differing values. (Mostly reverb, I guess?) I also mess around haphazardly with compressors, and very, very slight delay effects usually adjusted rather "dry". I also layer multiple stereo separators (I like the Korg Legacy MDE-X's "stereo doubling" effect plugin along with the very similar "Bright enhancer", although I think it's the same effect with just slightly different default adjustment values.) Often I adjust the pre and post gain modifiers of primarily the bass and upper pas/treble frequencies separately, and then I just stick the default FL Limiter at the bottom of the effect stack to further fuck around with/smooth out the peak levels, etc etc.

Obviously I'm not some technical audio expert at any stretch, and I don't claim to be. And usually spending time tweaking all the different modifying values and hearing the slight changes to the sound is fun and all, but at this point I'm becoming rather frustrated because I'd really like the drum track to sound more realistic.

So any specific VST effect plugin suggestions regarding all this rambling bullshit I just typed? Or perhaps any particular methods to share? What works for you in your creative music process, if you sometimes have the same problem with drum samples sounding too artificial?

Try a small room reverb. Phoenixverb is good and very lightweight, IRCAM Verb is much more realistic but comes with a bigger CPU hit. VSS3 is old but still great if you're working at 44.1 or 48khz. Put one of those on an aux track 100% wet, mix in around -15 or -20 dBFS. Maybe send a tiny bit of your live tracks as well to give them some sense of stereo width.

A word of caution: trying to mix synthetic and acoustic sounds is difficult. They will never sound 100% cohesive so don't make that your goal. The closest you can really get is throwing them all in a ambisonic environment like SPAT Revolution. Modern mixing relies on the psychoacoustic principle of auditory masking, so that room reverb I told you to add shouldn't even be consciously audible. You're stimming out and starting a computer screen that gives you visual feedback so you'll hear it loud and clear, but the average listener will just hear it as "more real." If you go deep enough down the rabbit hole, you'll start hearing the individual early reflections smearing transients, metallic resonances, and other artifacts we normally ignore. They may sound ugly, but ugly is natural.

You're very welcome, thanks for caring.

IRCAM Verb preset Studio 2, raise modal density to x2, width to 90 degrees, lower reverb time to under 0.5 seconds is my favorite for this purpose. No ugly, all beautiful, crank the volume for ultimate hyper modern faux-realism.

Post songs that don't need constant replay value to be special. I'll post 5 from each occasion:

Monthly songs:

Yearly songs:

Decennial songs:

I'd personally suggest maintaining the special by retaining that allotted time listened to these songs, but everyone has different tastes in music, so do as you please.

Hi everyone, we are Acid Carrots, a psychedelic rock project from the tiny European country of Croatia. Our ship has crash-landed here 3 earth years ago and we are gathering funds in order to fix it. It is a special kind of ship that uses an element called acidcarrotinnium, unknown to humans and generated by tasty guitar riffs and mind-melting drum fills, we need your help to get us moving by listening to our songs and help us generate more fuel so we can launch, by visiting our Patreon and Bandcamp. :)
Carrots are implementing the audience the need to be in everyday contact with the earth. They play music as a cover for the idea of giving the audience actual carrot seeds in order to encourage them to saw, that is, to connect with the ground. The carrot in our case is a symbol of all seeds.
Who are we exactly?
Fluctuating Sunday carrot is humming the bass line, drumming is pounded by thousand liberating sound carrot, vocals re reserved for sharpn scream edging carrot, while the goat mountain authority carrot strings guitar: all packed into a space rocking ground experience.

a couple months ago I started playing bass, playing like 1-3 hours a day or so, it's the first time i've played an instrument since high school. i played clarinet and bass clarinet and was pretty decent at it but i never practiced. i was tuning my bass earlier and for the hell of it i tried singing into the tuner to see if i could hold a note, then i realized as I was singing the notes as letters I could sort of guess and 9/10 i got it right or within a half step

>for some reason i had it in my head most people can't recall specific pitches the way most people can't recall specific colors

It's called perfect pitch and most people don't have it. Well, I like to think everyone has it but some people have more of a natural gift for it.

It sounds like you have a very strong ear and with some training you could develop perfect pitch.

Think about it. When you were first learning to recognize your colors, back in the day, you had to practice that shit with mom and dad. They would be like what color as they pointed at a car, you'd say blue, they'd say green. It took a lot of trial and error to memorize that.

It's very similar to sound. You have to listen to the notes and try to hear and recognize the differences. It's subtle but it's there.

Music has always been my link to feeling truly alive in life. I spent several years on various medications and a couple of years addicted to hard drugs, and now I'm only smoking weed and drinking. Since I've cleaned up, I can't seem to find music that gives me that feeling. I've stopped writing, I've stopped mixing, and if I find a song that I do enjoy, I suck the life out of it by replaying it for 36 hours on repeat.

I need playlists. Soundtracks to life. Something different, preferably new, underground is always good. Anything from rap, to EDM, to hardcore, and everything in between. Feel free to exclude anything in the country genre. Bluegrass and folk is OK.

What are you favorite live albums? I want to expand my collection.

The best one I've ever heard is Ween - Live At Stubb's, which is nearly 3 fucking hours of my favorite band ever in their absolute prime. I miss some of the songs from their later albums when I listen to it, but it still fucking rocks. Too bad copies of it go for like 100 fucking dollars, otherwise I'd keep the CD in my car at all times.


Concert movies are also acceptable.

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

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 don't know shit about it.

Let's say I want to mix some music for my friends live. Let's say I have picked the songs that I want to play.

What do I do besides crossfading one song into another? Most of the songs have some kind of effects, so I can't really do them myself.

Is that it? Do I just need songs and some kind of DJ program, like Virtual DJ or Traktor? Or do I buy the records of the songs and them mix them? I also see DJs playing with knobs, are they playing with sound frequencies, e.g., making the mids quieter?

I'm sure plenty of you lot use Last.fm... just found out this page that can visualize your Last.fm data in an interesting graphic. Let's see what we can get.
The page says you can also use it together with just Spotify, but I never tried that.
