Re: The Otterworld

I like this piece. It has a nice jive, and all of the sounds work together. I like the very acoustic, organic-sounding cymbals with the electronic sounds layered over the top.

Remastering Using Noise Repellent, etc.

Hello all, I have been working on remastering one of my older tracks, recorded in 2006-2007 on Windows using a terrible audio interface. I was so impressed with Noise Repellent that I decided to do a write-up about the process. This project took me out of my comfort zone because I don't normally com...

Re: Let's Cruise (surf)

I dig this piece, and I think you nailed the sound. The guitar is just the right kind of wet, and the drumming patterns have just the right momentum. Very listenable, and interesting all the way through. Your guitar playing is quite good!

Thanks for sharing this recording!

Re: What kind of musician am I?

This is a good problem to have. It's better than the opposite end of the spectrum, where you pick up your instrument and instantly feel bored and can't think of anything you want to play.

Re: Matching Equalizer

What's the use case for this? Would you put in on the master bus during the mastering process and match it to a track you are trying to emulate the sound of?

Maybe you could use it as a sort of automated noise filter?

What else? I'm intrigued with the possibilities.

Re: Hey peeps! Getting back into making music... and linux!

Welcome, Pix Retro! We are glad you are here. JACK can be quite temperamental in my experience, but having a decent audio interface helps a lot. When I was trying to get JACK running on whatever random internal sound card my computer came with I had very little luck with it. But when I bought an ext...

Re: Bass Player UK

Welcome to the forum! I suggest that you start by enabling the kxstudio repos. I also use Mint, and kstudio works well on my system. My second suggestion is that you check out Guitarix. I can't believe I ever recorded guitar and bass without it. Do you already have an idea what DAW you want to use? ...

Re: Latest recordings -- what can i improve

I like these tracks. I've been thinking for a while that Tocatta and Fugue in D minor would make a great surf rock song, so it's nice to hear another rock arrangement of a classical piece. I dig the recorder solo on the last piece. The last verse in that third song is particularly poignant -- very n...

Re: A tribute to David Lynch

This is a nice electronic ambient piece. Lots of cool sounds. I definitely agree that ZynAddSubFX is an awesome synth.

Re: Rated Blue - Joy

A solid track! Some great playing on all the instruments, and good dynamics bringing the energy and volume levels up and down to keep things really interesting through the whole song. I dig the wah-wah guitar solo especially. Which drumkit is that? I assume it was the real thing, not the soundfont. :)

Re: Dragonfly Reverb 2.0.0

I learned some things from his video. Cutting out the bass frequencies in the reverb on the kick drum and bass guitar is a good idea which I will definitely try. Anything that helps clear out the mud in the low frequencies is worth trying!

We have been corresponding for a couple of days, he said he might make one for Dragonfly Room as well.


Congratulations on the glowing review! My favorite quote from the video: "Because it's FREAKING AWESOME!"

Re: How to improve drum machine sound

If you can get the midi notes off of your device and into a midi track in a DAW like Ardour, Qtractor, etc, then a drum plugin like DrumGizmo or AVL Drumkits LV2 should work. You might have to play with the midi mapping a bit. Audacity won't cut it for this task.

Re: casette recording

I quite like this. I listened to it several times over the weekend. The VU meters as the only moving thing in the video are kind of hypnotic. I especially like the subtle synth that comes in briefly at about 1:30. Overall a very relaxing mood piece. Was this recorded on a cassette machine? An old 4-...
