    Gagarin Project got a reaction from yiannis in What does "live" mean?   
    very interesting subject, i have personally been investigating on this and what i found :
     
    a) most sets chill / mainstage are pre-recorded. Artists play their "stereo" mastered tracks and even the order is already predefined in Ableton Live / Cubase. Few times i have seen artist playing a 1h long audio file.
     
    b ) it is hardly possible to play tracks as if they were still in editing mode (because each track is usually 20-100 audio channels) and some plugins / vst are very CPU hungry so they can glitch at some point.
     
    so in any case even if you play LIVE set you still need to do some preparation, export / render files etc.
     
    c) knobs and faders can be assigned to anything in software, and in case of LIVE it is usually some kind of audio FX or synths params.
     
    d) some artist have really advanced LIVE setups, specially the one that play a lot because they are bored to play same tracks over and over. As an example i can mention Kalya Scintilla, Desert Dwellers and Globular.
     
    e) Some artists play instruments LIVE on top of the recorded tracks : Suduaya (plays guitar), Terranine plays violin etc.
     
    p.s. there is much more to say on this subject, and i am attentive to other views / infos about this.

    Gagarin Project reacted to andorra in DJs and Tracklist   
    I think tracklists should always be published with the mix. Most of the points said in earlier posts but as a small artists I can add that it makes a great deal to see your track in a tracklist of a DJ set

    Hi , 
     
    since a while i have a dream to have a VA that is connected and maybe even have a direct reference to psybient.org in its name.
     
    maybe it will be called - VA - psybient.org compilation volume 1 .... 
     
    We are all creating this project together, so i am curious to know your ideas and visions ....
     
    - what kind of compilation you want ?
    - how to make it special ?
    - which artists should be with us ?
    - any other name suggestions ?

    Gagarin Project got a reaction from un1ty in How to release a dj set in internet (naming, tagging, cover art)? My way to do it.   
    Maybe it is not the pro way to do it, but in this way i do feel that i am creating something that is listener friendly. I've seen some other people around me doing and created my own approach. Being probably the biggest consumer of my mixes, i like them to look "nice" on my audio players.
     
    I am sharing the technical aspect of creating DJ mix, the "legally" proper way is to contact each of the artist/labels and ask them for permission to use a track in dj mix. Well i guess 99% of dj's in internet don't do it and i am one of those. Actually most of the time if you provide proper credits (information about track-list) most of the artist will thank you for promoting what their music. 
     
    Creating of mix and archive file
    Recording a mix (following an idea or experimenting, track pre-selection or improvisation) Checking the mix (i do not like to re-record mixes, but sometimes is necessary) Intro / Outro - fade in / fade out (to make it smooth)  (optional) mastering. ( i am not doing it, but i know some people do it). Here is discussion on this subject. Giving the name to the mix Track-list (i think this is a mandatory for all the mixes that are released to public, dj's must give credits to all the artist tracks they use) Basic mix info to the text file Cover art creation (i usually use a creative commons licensed images and i edit them in photoshop) (optional) i create a .cue file.This file is useful when you record a mix to CD, as it give the information to cd recording program about the track length. This way when mix is recorded to CD you can skip tracks. This .cue file will allow to skip tracks when you use some of the software audio players on your computers. put everything to a folder (audio file + text file + cover art file + cue) Preparing mp3 file to online / offline sharing
    As I record my mixes to the wave format, i keep the lossless version of file for archive (i convert them to Apple lossless format, but FLAC, AIFF can do the job as good).
    Then I convert it to mp3 (320 kbps). This file will be uploaded. using Itunes i add all tags: artist, name, year, style etc (see screenshot) a add cover art i add track-list to lyrics field  (see screenshot) i name the mp3 file properly (something like this Gagarin_Project_-_32_-_Cosmic_Awakening_-_10_-_Earth.mp3).Adding number to the mix allow me to keep them sorted if they are stored in one folder) adding "underlines" instead of spaces can be useful when you upload files. (this allow to view all this information on some audio players, for instance the track-list can be easily visible by ipod/iphone). It also help for people to identify the author of the mix. 
     
    if i want to make mix publicly available i will upload it to online streaming services (soundcoud and mixcloud) and will share share it to groups on soundcloud and facebook.
     
    you can look here the example of a folder with all files => http://www.gagarinproject.org/download-our-mixes/
     
    Last but not least, i think dj's shall support/buy the music they mix, listeners shall support/buy original artists. 
     
    Let me know if it was interesting / useful for you to read
     
    p.s.
    This workflow might sounds complex, well i do it like this.
     
    p.p.s.

    new Shpongle! can't wait to hear the full album (out October 23rd). Empty Branes is surprisingly good and I think this album will be way better than Museum Of Consciousness was. This along with Carbon Based Lifeforms - Derelicts will make October a hell of a month!

    Generally always try do things with the DAW.  Including modulation of parameters (I'd rather use the Bitwig LFO than any built in LFO)
     
    It's more consistent, you dont have to learn so many different tools and know exactly how you expect them to behave in every circumstance.  You can also switch out the synth or whatever for something else with minimal effort

    4 votes for Pablo Selecta by 4 people who only voted for that release and nothing else? Looking kinda suspicious there Pablo.
     
    Next month I'm going to enable the option to let you see who voted for what, if I see a bunch of brand new accounts voting for the same release and nothing else, foul play is suspected and all votes will be deleted and all those accounts will be banned. Fake votes will absolutely not be tolerated.
     
    Edit: turns out its just friends of Pablo coming here to vote after seeing a facebook post of his highlighting this poll. Still, I would encourage those newcomers to check out some of the other releases here too though.
    but the above point still stands. (maybe I should clarify that if it looks like multiple accounts are from the same IP address, those are what will be considered "fake".)
