Is it really clock day tomorrow? If it really is I'm not gonna log on to NG until next week and hope it's all gone by then.. even though I know it won't. Clock day is the worst day of the year.

Hey brokendeck how did you get eastwest play libraries working on kontakt, i think you mentioned that once before and I've been trying to figure out how.

Play is such a memory hog (Kontakt is too, but is not in comparison)

This only works if you have the old Kompakt Player version of EWQL Sym Gold.

Old Stuff
I just found back home a cassette with my old band from the 90s!!! We recorded a track at a local radio station.
There is huge noise, mixed like crap but at least the music is... is... old and soooo naive.

You overestimate me :)) well, some interesting ideas there, I think to post the recording on Soundcloud after I clean them up a bit.

Any chance to post it here? Or is it something that your old band has a copyright on?

Transitions (Screw your fancy [ ] subject tags!)

Someone learn me how to do good transitions... I'm working on a song for my album (One in my sig), and I know how the next section is gonna go, but I'm fucking terrible when it comes to transitions... The most common complaint I get on my music is, "Transitions could be better"... And I'm like, "I'm trying!!"... Then I cry myself to sleep cause they still sound abrupt and/or stupid.

Having the same problem with the song I'm working on now... It's driving me insane.

One that works is to have an instrument take the spotlight for a while as the transition is happening or sustain a tonic note from the previous section to the next section (as long as there is no big tonal change that is).

Alternatively you can record a choking chimpanzee and paste that over.

Maybe you can listen to a song that has the same style as the song you're making and listen to the transitions.

I actually do this a lot... like right now, I'm using a 1 bar placeholder, which is basically a short drum intermission in the rhythm of the next section... but it still sounds abrupt and kind of out of place... I was debating putting some strings or something there as well... but I still haven't figured out how I'm gonna do the orchestral bits in the section, let alone how I'll include them in the transition. The changes I make between sections of songs are usually pretty drastic.

I like this idea... Problem solved.

You can do an ascending or descending run of the scale (adjusting according to the speed of the transition) and end up in the first note of the next section with the guitar or instrument of your choice accompanied by the drum fill or whatever is going on.

I think that the main principle of any good transition is to build commonality between differing sections. That could be timbres, pitches, chord progressions, rhythms, motifs, or any number of things. The more elements in common, the smoother the transition. Also, the longer the amount of time the transition takes, the smoother it will be. A one or two bar transition might not necessarily be smooth.

This is something I plan on trying with the brass and/or strings... I've done a couple test runs, but I haven't found anything that seems to fit just yet... But I've got more ideas to throw at the wall.

In actuality, both sections are extremely similar, they're both in Db, both in 4/4 time, both at 200 BPM... The biggest difference is that the rhythm is running in triplets as opposed to straight 8th notes as it was before. The section is your typical "metal chug breakdown"... save the fact that it'll have orchestral elements in there as well.... I just haven't figured out how I'm gonna incorporate said orchestral elements into a heavy chug section yet.

Who knows... maybe the only reason it really sounds out of place is because there's a large focus on the orchestral stuff in the previous section and I simply haven't gotten the orchestral stuff in the new section yet... Maybe I'm worrying prematurely.

"Oh you just need to deepen the bass on your drums so it sounds fuller" they say, "it's just kind of missing that depth." Not a big deal! Correctly mixing techno drums is only the HARDEST FUCKING THING IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD TO DO.

I'm thinking that something like getting Pantera to do a reunion tour would be much harder than that.

I usually layer two drums of the same kind on each other to make it fuller. It's just one kind of style for D&B to fill up some depth, however; I bet there are more techniques.

I dunno how Techno drum mixing works, however.

I already did that. I did lots of things. I once took a spectrometer and analyzed the frequency distribution of a professional kick. I still can't do it.

FUCKING PISSED OFF

Fucking fuck. So I've been going to this gym lately, almost daily - working out and shit. And always on the way there I listen to music from my iPhone. Well not fucking anymore. Today I reach the gym, get a key to my locker, change into my sportswear and leave my bag and iPhone inside the locker. I'm pretty sure I had locked the locker, but there was somebody in the room, who saw my key number, but I can't recall the face anymore. Anyway, I leave the locker room and hang the key on the wall at the key counter.

The thing is, sometimes the person on duty doesn't watch after the keys. Anyway, after a few hours I go back to the locker room, open it and - oh fuck it's gone. Obviously I get pissed and go to the person at the key table and ask - what the fuck is this.

Back at home, I got a call from the gym - the owner called and said that it was the first time in 9 years that this happened. Well it fucking did.

Anyways, I did a list of people who were there and after using some logic - I have only two people who seem too fucking suspicious, and oh, I've seen them the first time there.

One is a Croatian fellow, speaks English well - and that's when it gets to me - he was the one who was beside me in the locker room and saw me put my phone in. I'm pretty confident that it could be him, because the other suspect is a dude in the end of his 40s, so I doubt he would do it.

And I can't report to the police - because I don't know Bosnian, and it will be a huge pain in the arse. But the police can easily trace it. The phone is still on, because I dialed and the signal was going.

Anyways, got any hints on what should I do? Only members of the club were there today, and as I said, I got down the list of suspects to the minimum. The owner said that there was one new dude, but didn't say exactly who.

I'm pretty sure it's the Croatian fellow, because he saw my locker number and how I put my phone there.

Help, bros.

tell the police you're practically sure its him, you saw him AND did a deduction. you were a first hand witness.

if thats not a good enough reason then wtf is
