Creating Sounds

At 5/3/09 12:37 PM, MICHhimself wrote: DPC (I'll refer to you with that from now on, lol), Are you having trouble with making your own synth settings?
Maybe this linky could help you further a bit then. By knowing what exactly those elements on a synth do, the barrier to create your own sounds, while knowing what you're doing gets a lot lower.

Not trouble with the setting persé - more the making it sound good with said settings, lol :P
I did study in college last year about subtractive and additive synthesis. I just lose patients when it comes to making them.

Thanks for the link though, I'll give that a read.

Probably because they've been making electronic music for decades, and it's what they know best... some people just feel more "in control" when they use hardware units, which I can understand.

BBS-error (from previous page)

it happens now and then when a post gets deleted, sometimes the counter doesn't keep up. usually somone posts in the thread to "make it right", its possible that it gets fixed after a certain amount of time too, or something like that... im not 100%
it can display wrong poster as last poster, if the laast post have been deleted too. but its a minor issue. luzzzl

Seriously, how is it possible that I contacted him less than 24 hours ago, and he already had my username changed (well, removed the numbers, but you get the picture)? Massive respect.

Congrats on the name change Hades! Damn, I should have sent my request in before. I said I was going to do it then, but I'm just too lazy :P

I wish those who download my songs would also rate my songs. I would usually get more downloads than votes.

Anyone know what his setup is? I.e. Orchestral VSTis?

They sound incredibly real (although several spots sound fabricated) and i'm wondering what he's using.

Knob Twiddling

Well all that knob turning pays off in the end, when all the tiny little details you did come together to form the big picture. The fun for me is the process of going between how something is in my head and how it will eventually end up as an mp3. And it amazes me sometimes when I think about it, electronic music and synthesis in general is boiled down to a science. All that cold calculating lifeless power of a computer merged with the creativity, judgement, and feeling of a person, that comes together to form something as raw and abstract as sound. Sound can have such power over us, even though all it is is vibrations traveling through the air. When I produce, it feels like I have control over sound. (which is pretty much a godly feeling)

Nithalahk: I wish I could feel like that. I use to have a KeystationPro 88 and could never achieve anything with the controller itself. I learn to use Reason with my mouse so I'm kind of use to it. Now, the more I compose the more I feel the need for a controller. I wish I could find just a little one that would be easy to use... AND not too expensive.

gregaaron89: Man that's deep! But I totally feel that way too with electronic music.

Mondays

Aww guys I hate mondays! I completed my last song yesterday... and I'm still under the adrenaline rush the inspiration gave me and I REALLY don't feel like going to work this morning. To me, feels like a hangover... but without the pleasure of the drinking before... Well I can still listen to my last creation and feel proud about it... Anyway, Have a good Monday everyone!

I just dislike the fact that on Mondays, All I can think about is the week ahead and all the crap its going to hold. Studies, School and Gym mainly. Although, I'm getting rid of Gym next year, So I can try to just stick that out. Otherwise, I'm quite keen on making my new Songs. I'm gonna have a week or so off though, And plan ahead this time.

Yay :|

I know he uses vstis - like garritan viloin, and he might use vienna vst as well.

Those must either be extremely well-recorded samples or he must be an expert masterer.

The instruments are incredibly rich in sound and have hardly any flaws (that I can tell.)

I wonder if he'd send me a copy of his library..

Rawr.

Yeah.. I'm not dead.

I've just been having interweb issues.

But I hijacked my roommate's comp at the moment. And... I'll be moving at the end of the month.. and sorting it all out then. (So.. somewhere around the end of the month I'll have reliable interwebs again)

Today, I pulled my Audio from Newgrounds. Its all explained in my Blog. I think I have an inkling as to why Wind Waker screwed up, But I'm not entirely sure. Just wanna say sorry to anyone who reviewed or favorited them. I was getting pretty annoyed at the stupid people who didn't realise they could have done like 1 minute of reading, And saved me the hassle of deleting Temple Of Time.

Anyway, Enough ranting. I'm just sorry to anyone who put some time in. The better version of the two, will be on the Site within this month. Sorry again :)

People leaving Newgrounds because of the RSS feed/zero bombers

The audio portal has been in need of a face lift and tweak for some time. Hopefully we'll see that change soon, before all of the regulars leave.

i just wanna improve more on my tracks on other music sites, where the site is suppose to be there for music. most people here say, OMG THIS IS AWESOME, and about 30% of the reviewers actually write something. but a lot of people have been getting lazy lately, and busy, so things have just been going down hill.

I realized something that alot of newgrounds audio listeners do. No vocals means lame. I suffer from their irrational reasoning... sorta. Keyword "MOST". Not all.

I say let ratings be done by reviews only, at least for the audio portal. That way, it makes people give their thoughts. Majority of review ratings are insanely higher than score ratings, which makes score underrated and reviews overrated. Better off doing 2 in 1 to balance it out.
JUST A SUGGESTION! If it's not a good idea, then I'm the idiot.

LED Dimming

So today I devised a pretty simple strategy for LED Dimming, using a single transistor per channel.

Here's a link to a video, though since it's on facebook I'm not 100% sure it'll work. But we'll see.

VIDEO TWO

This circuit is pretty badass because it's got a parts cost of a couple bucks per channel, and could hypothetically be scaled pretty big.
