I almost wish I was in the 9-5 grind... I'm sick of getting up at 6AM and working every weekend.

I finally has it. Getting it halfway through my finals isn't the greatest of ideas I'm sure, but I'll try to call upon some SHEER, UNADULTERATED SELF-CONTROL.

My username is Bosa and I don't know my IRL name so I can't offend myself as efficiently.

I hear musicians discussing it when talking about mastering/ mixing all the time.
Can someone explain what headroom is to me?

Headroom is the "distance" between a waveform and the 0 dB limit (i.e. the limit after which any audio gets clipped). It's marked in red in the picture below. Headroom is important for a variety of purposes. It's important to leave headroom if you want to send a track over to someone to master, for example. If you make it too loud and don't put any limiters or compressors over it, then the top and bottom parts of the waveform (called the 'peaks') get clipped out, and too much of this will create audible static/clicking noises (generally referred to as 'clipping'). You can't send a track to get mastered with the peaks clipped off, so headroom is important to make sure that the waveform is sent in its entirety.

When you want to make sure that a track has headroom, always check the loudest point of the waveform and make sure that there's some space from there to the 0 dB limit. Below, I've marked one of the loudest points of the waveform in black. There's no headroom over there, and the waveform's peak just about touches the limit. This is what good mastering involves; making sure the track is as loud as can be (without clipping the waveform) while still retaining suitable dynamic range (i.e. you don't want everything brickwalled like this in a dynamic orchestral piece). The rule I like to follow is that it's OK if a track doesn't have headroom and clips above the 0 dB limit as long as it's 1.) not too loud and 2.) it doesn't produce audible clipping noises.

Might have deviated from the subject a little but I hope I helped.

Excited, searched up Daft Punk's new album, and the first song that comes up: "Get Lucky" ...

and then, crying

-_____________________-

uploaded today solely for this purpose, extremely rough WIP based on guitar experimentation. Decided to put a hold on the project 3 years ago when someone told me it sounded too similar to another song from the 90s
too bad it actually didn't exist until recently. damn. exact. same. chords. and. chorus melody thing.
I may just continue it anyway, since it was nowhere near complete to begin with
pfft

My main question is, does this (likely 1990s) mystery song actually exist? Something that sounds like their new track or my own above? (Possibly a previous Daft Punk song?) O__O

I found some work that I could probably do. talked to a friend of mine and he said I could help work at the factory his grandpa owns.

basically they test vitamin water for bacteria and shit before they patch it up and sell it.

I could work as a janitor, designer, or assistant.

fuck yeah.

It comes with the FL Studio Producer edition, which is far more bang for your buck. You should do some research on which editions offer what you need/want and pick which one suits you the most.

Maximus only comes with Signature edition, not Producer.

Also... just wait a bit if you want to buy it, they do sales and promotional offers pretty often. I got maximus for $45 on sale.

Yeah my bad, this.

For some reason I thought producer edition was the highest...

I'm listening to a hardstyle song that consists entirely of a girl singing, a loud supersaw synth, and an egregiously loud drum hit. It uses one of the most overused chord progressions ever with a melody that's 8 bars long and is simply repeated over and over and over. And for some strange, stupid reason, I like it.

Haha, I've applied for that job before. Nothing would make me happier than delivering pizza to hungry peeps. Just make sure to let us know when this happens.
