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.

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.

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.

Will I ever tire of the major flat 6 chord in minor progressions?

Clearly the number one chord of all time. With the major 7th added is even stronger. So for example if you are in D minor, the flat 6th would be a Bb major chord with an added A if you're including the major 7th. This chord is so fucking powerful. When I started composing 16 years ago, it was my favorite chord. It still is, by far. You can also turn it from major to minor, which sounds great too.

Let's say you're in C major. First you find the relative minor to C major. To do that you always move three half steps downward to A, thus A minor. Vice versa, to find the relative major of a key you move three half steps up. If you're in D minor, the relative major would be F.

So, if we are in D minor, then to find the b6 chord ( flat 6, the b is a flat sign ) we must count 6 whole ( not half ) steps up to get to Bb. D -> E -> F -> G -> A -> Bb major and also, optionally, adding the major 7th by counting 7 from THAT note, the Bb. Bb -> C -> D -> E -> F -> G -> A. The major 7th is A.

So the b6 ( flat six ) chord in D minor is a chord called Bb major ( or Bb major 7 ) consisting of the notes Bb+D+F or Bb+D+F+A.

I dunno, they had a couple good singles but their albums were always really hard to get into. They also have that uppity, "I'm an artist, I am holier than thou" attitude. Plus I've met some of their hardcore fans and it just does the same thing to me. Kinda like the 120lb dude who loves heroin and thinks the Beatles are just the epitome of musical greatness and will just give a passive Frenchmen's wave at any notion that there is something better or that you don't like the Beatles.

Honestly, I'd probably rather listen to the new Korn or Slipknot album and relive my late 90's youth music there.

nostalgia is one thing but a continuation of your nostalgia into your later years is a powerful thing. pnubera links into schism perfectly as if they were continuing a tangent of thought from a decade ago regardless of the contextual gap.

Ok so...

The difference is corporate corruption on the 9th level of forcing musicians to do terrible things for blackmail leverage, and independent companies who wont force you into skull+bones illuminati BS.

Is there any good non-classical chinese music? Is canto-pop worth listening to?

I was just thinking how japan has a bunch of good music (city pop, j-funk, metal, etc.). Korea has k-pop, which I don't really like, but can at least appreciate it. But when it comes to china? I've never heard any good modern shit. I think I've heard some cantonese pop that I oculd vibe to. And I really like 88Rising, but there's more NYC than china, right?

So what's up with modern chinese music? Oh yeah, and obviously their classical music (including contemporary) is amazing. If you like that shit, post it.

I know nothing about Chinese pop culture, but i got the feeling we all will know a lot about it in some years. Can it even be worse than modern hip hop is the question.

Rap is huge there. Punk is alive there and hasn't really been corporatized so that's cool, i've heard some pretty good shit from Chinese bands.

Rap can go either way, it started out rebellious and now the top TV show is China's top rap star. There was a point in time where they were just rapping about drugs and being tough guys like sound cloud rappers but there was a big government crackdown and a lot of artists were re educated. Now they make songs about the glory of China and following the rules and blame the bad influences of America, black people in particular, for the content of their banned old songs. Despite this artists considered "safe" from America are still huge there. This is Chinese pop culture in a nutshell at the moment.
