when i’m relaxing i like to play kongregate games. look who i found in this one! hahaha.
B: The correct time to call album of the year is 10 years after that year.
R: is that the required latency for AoTY?
B: Pretty much.
B: You can usually tell 10 years from now that it's the album you're still listening to.
R: but I don't listen to anything from 2002 anymore. so obv. nothing from that year was AOTY then?
R: the key to modern dance tho is 4/4 or 6/4
SH: aye, it's about shaking your ass
R: I suppose so
SH: well not everything. as lots of music is about artistic merit, but electro/rock should be about ass shaking
R: idk if most rock merits ass shaking tho
SH: ah but "electro/rock" as a genre -- a solitary genre, rather than meaning electro AND rock
R: ah yes
SH: that's for dancing
SH: I WANT TO MAKE MUSIC LIKE THAT, Demented music
SH: How does one make music like that?
R: several ways of doing it. start with the bass synth, have it repeat every 16th note with no modulation
SH: i am copying all this down btw
R: add light pads overtop
R: >that sad factor when my turntables mixer input is my best Audio Interface for my mics.
APLM: why don't you just buy a usb interface
R: >spending money lol...
WGWGSA: >having money lol...
R: i would, but im saving up for a better AI, not cheap one
APLM: ah that makes sense
R: so that my 24bit recordings have the noise floor below 16bit.
MATTI: maria, did you listen to my voicemail things?
APLM: not yet. did you do a lot of takes
MATTI: 3 for each part for now. if it's not enough, let me know, because actually i did a lot of takes but just picked three for each part :)
R: >that feel when I just did 20 vocals takes and didn't like a single one
MATTI: i know that feel
WGWGSA: >that feel when usually do two vocal takes and pitch correct the hell out of them
APLM: i typically do about 15-20
WGWGSA: >gud singer
APLM: but only keep 8 and only send 2-4, keep the rest for safety
NMP: I usually record 10 takes, 4 normal, 3 high pitched and 3 in a deep voice. and pitch correct the hell out of them
B: True men record 20 takes, print them all on vinyl, and then use vinyl to audition which one sounds best.
MATTI: sounds complicated
B: Vinyl, not dub. That's for casuals. True men also sample their kick drums on tape to get that tape warmth, and then to vinyl, to get a little bit of vinyl crackle in
R: but only vinyl on cd
B: Because vinyl crackles sound sexy as hell
just turn off the click.
WGWGSA: FL really does seem to assume you're working in 4x4 and to its credit it does what it does stupendously. and i'm going to keep rationalizing because fucked if i have the patience to switch
R: >using metereing at all -_- >just turn off the click :P
APLM: kappacore in one sentence. >click tracks more like dick tracks amirite
R: yup 100%. then again figuring I use drum loops often enough. I suppose I do always have a click 70% of the time
APLM: >always >70%
WGWGSA: 100% of the time, he has one 70% of the time
R: yep, I math good when tired.
APLM: hold the phone, there's a math major in the house
WGWGSA: WHO CALLED?!!?
R: Then who was phone?
WGWGSA: even math cannot tell us who was phone
TOO MANY SHARKS.
APLM: PIECE OF SHIP: DELUXE CHRISTMAS EDITION
APLM: and all it is is piece of ship with reindeer sounds thrown in
R: instant gold in italy
WGWGSA: sleigh bells
KD: drone covers of christmas carols
WGWGSA: oh god drone covers
KD: i will get to it some time, i swear
APLM: <3 we love you just the same china
WGWGSA: i mean
APLM: but we would love piece of ship 2 more
WGWGSA: we'd love you more if you MADE MORE DRONE ;_;
APLM: NOT ENOUGH SHIPS IN THE HAI
WGWGSA: the disintegration loops can only hold me over so long, they're just loops
APLM: TOO MANY SHARKS
WGWGSA: I'M DYING KENT
SF: I finally recorded an instrument
R: what mics did you use on the keys? or more so where did you place the mics? there for sure is a room mic or a mic like 1 foot away. sounds like the lid was still on the piano
APLM: lol kappa when i was a kid i didn't even know you could open the lid of an upright. found out when i was already 10-11 i think
SF: Yeah I didn't take the lid off. It was a foot away
R: haha good guesses :)
APLM: you've passed the kappa final
SF: It's just a SM58
APLM: thanks professor kappa
SF: I finally got to hear how it sounds. And I am impressed Kap
