I know little theory myself and whenever I make tracks it's pretty much an envisioned idea of what instantly pops into my mind. If I want to try and create a track similar to something else I have heard genre-wise, I try and break it down by-ear and see what really structures the particular track and learn from it. The more I do so, the more I learn. Playing around making sounds up in Z3TA+ and Gladiator2 also helps me (in a way) learn how certain synths and sounds are structured and how they contribute to a track overall.

With the amount of technology available today, it's just madness if people can't even have creative with these stuff. Like back in the old day, only the riches and the gifted have their chances to study or even compose music. Right now everyone can be gifted. But I think with technology, we can bypass all the standardized theory stuff.

Z3TA+ is an awesome synth, especially for creating arpeggio and lead.

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.
