I find singing a lot less embarrassing when I'm accompanying myself on guitar or something. I feel less "naked" when I'm doing that.

That said, I'm also rather shy when it comes to singing, regardless of circumstance (unless I'm alone in my room).

I like stumbling upon songs here that have singing. There's a lot of girls here who do, but I think more guys should come out of their shells and sing or incorporate their voice into their music sometimes. It's refreshing to hear a human part within a song technologically pieced together. I'm sure some of you are better than you think you are :(

I never think I'm good either, butt I'll incorporate my not-good voice anyways. If you share it and you're really that bad, well...there's at least one person being moved by how awful you are. An accomplishment? Sure, why not. I mean...Rebecca Black...

Who knows what kind of recognition your awfulness can achievvveee!!!

Lol, I agree so hard about people chewing with their mouthes open. HOW HARD IS IT TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT WHEN YOU CHEW?!

Oh, and when teammates totally disregard people who type tactics in chat box - that's annoying too.

In other news, I have achieved one of my two goals in life. I have completed the Penumbra series and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Bring on A Maschine For Pigs!

Yes, ever since using NI Maschine, I automatically type in "maschine" instead of "machine". I even scoffed at OpenOffice spellcheck for a few seconds...

Exactly my thought.
I think music theory and creativity cannot be considered as different ways of making music, but rather as complementary partners. Of course, you can do well without theory, but i think it still can help in the creative process.

On a totally different note, is there anyone looking forward to the "Doomsday" ?

I think music theory helps you learn to write your melodies down in a more coherent way. I found that with people who don't know music theory, their melodies tend to be all over the place.

Hey guys. Sorry to pop in unannounced, but I was wondering how many of you have done sound design at all.

I feel like some people are really good at music and they should stop trying to experimenting and taking that "one next step into the unknow " with their next track.
I suggest that you guys from time to time make a track featuring all the best stuff you currently have. It might not be entertaining for you but that's what you have been working towards all this time..
You should reflect that there is no end to getting better even though you feel like you know too little or like nothing at all

for the sake of discussion, I considered it but then realized that 99% of the people i know in sound design cant produce complex things worth a shit.

And the degree tends to go nowhere.

I love sound design, but I haven't done it professionally. I can show you a quick example.

By sound design, do you mean creating your own synth patches, or do you mean transforming natural sounds, such as animal noises and w/e?

If so, I've done both, but way more time has been spent in synths.

Or do you mean have we got a degree in sound design?

I don't have that...

Music theory is a great thing to know, but I hardly use any theory rules when writing music. I play what sounds good to me, and hopefully what others will like as well.

Video Editing

So every school day my friend and I (we live fairly close to each other so we go in the same schoolbus) sit down near each other on the bus and use my laptop, so that he can work on Adobe After Effects for a particularly big commission. He isn't an expert with it (in fact he only started using it like a week ago), but damn that stuff's complicated. I wouldn't say as complicated as making music because routing mixer channels and all the different plugins and synthesis and whatnot is still more complex, but still.

What came off as even more of a surprise is that editing video takes a hell of a lot of RAM. I thought FL Studio with East/West would take a lot since in Task Manager I see it taking up over 1.8 GB a lot of the time, but when he was rendering a very simple video in After Effects, it was taking up 2.6 GB of my laptop's 3.48 GB of RAM like it's nothing. The screen started flickering, other programs like uTorrent stopped running as if to leave some space for After Effects, and the laptop slowed down like crazy.

We didn't manage to finish rendering the video in time since the bus arrived at his house and he had to get off, but I swear if we left it rendering any longer we'd start seeing smoke coming out of my laptop. And that's for a simple .avi video. There goes my mentality that sample library VSTs are the most resource-intensive things out there.
