  1. Agreed, recent releases were amazing, a lot of great artists.
  2. Nice find, I'll try it out and see how it works inside a DAW.
  3. Haven't seen it mentioned so here's Paulstretch, software for stretching audio to extreme measures while staying in tune with the original. Great for experimentation and pads. http://hypermammut.sourceforge.net/paulstretch/
  4. Ahhh I always love checking these out. I'm eager to see what they've selected.
  5. I absolutely agree with the idea that DJs must provide track lists when they use other artists music. Give credit where it's due, it's much more laborious to produce that track rather than just mixing it. It's the least the producers deserve. Besides being selfish to have those great tracks for yourself as much as possible is just a shitty way to go about it. If it's your own music you're mixing I don't care what you do, though ideally I'd still like to be able to check them out.
  6. Luigi Tozzi - I'll Be Your Mirror (Live Mix) x3no - Silent Circle
  7. Alternatively, change the https to http int the url. At the very least the embedded youtube videos show up again that way.
  8. Hah indeed. It's my fathers absolute favourite . I personally consider almost everything from their inception to the very end of 70's a masterpiece.
  9. You can't find the exact meaning of it whilst you're trapped in this body, you just can't access it. It's all about the experience and learning to be a sovereign being. Besides many other things Yeah and even all the people who got a DMT breakthrough experience, they might have accessed it in some form, but when you come back you barely remember anything, cause you're-- errr, sort of not allowed to. So just enjoy the fact that life and consciousness will remain somewhat of a mystery on planet Earth . But to give my thought on few things that probably matter a lot and we (in my opinion) are supposed to discover and learn is sovereignty, discipline and mindfulness. And these are just related to an individual, I'd not take my chances with the collective ones, other than to reconnect with this wonderful living breathing organism we call Earth. But again, just my current opinion. Or maybe it's just 42, or maybe there's none, what do I know
  10. Pink Floyd - A Pillow Of Winds ^^ And right after that will play Fearless, which is no doubt my favorite song from Meddle (ye I like it more than Echoes )
  11. Sequence of 1's is my yes number Have you by any chance finished that song?
  12. I definitely try to get 10 hours down, but sometimes 8 is enough. Ever since I started sleeping on the floor with some blankets (to simulate the soil and grass) I get much, much, MUCH better rest. It also made me realize how bad a bed is. Very good for the spine as well, muscles too rest better that way. Unfortunately I tend to stay up late, which is something I want to change atm. Going to sleep with the sun and getting up with it or before it rises is so much different then getting up late. It's like the day is twice as long and you get done everything you need with more energy.
  13. It's very nice, I like the patterns the matrix makes. Although the bit rate can't keep up to make a clear image when there's a lot of spheres moving quickly on the display So uploading and rendering the video at even higher resolution can give it more clarity, which would make this EPIC! But it's also very very demanding. (Maybe Vimeo can give better results?) Anyways, I still subbed
  14. Wow, I need to thank you for mentioning these. I am surprised these slipped by my sights since they look like nice quality plugins for free.
  15. With samples from movies and such I often don't worry too much about the noise, I remove some but there's not much you can do about it without becoming the equivalent of a heart surgeon. And it also depends where the sample sits, by that I mean the position of the song. There will be a difference between including on the beginning, in the middle of everything happening or in something like a more quite bridge section or middle8. But generally I roll of the lows, since it's usually just useless rumble down there, remove some hissing highs but not too much to make it sound very dull (unless it's what I'm going for). Sometimes it helps to use a de-esser but Iacchus already said what the problem is then. If the noise is really invasive I just search for a better one. But it's always very individual and EQing and Mixing is always a big boogeyman for novice producers. So lot's of experience, producing and learning is always the best technique . (that's why I'm here sucking up the precious knowledge from other more seasoned producers, muhaha)
  16. I highly recommend you to try out splice, they have a lot of samples fitting the genre you're looking for. It's a monthly subscription service but you can browse the sounds for free for the first 14 days (so you can now if it's worth it). The moment you download something however is the moment when the subscription kicks it. Alternatively try this site - http://bedroomproducersblog.com/free-samples/ Or google, or reddit. There's a lot of resources, even free ones, you just gotta look around the place.
  17. Well the most obvious thing is that the strings do not reach out into higher frequencies. So either using the right waveform or filter settings will give you a good start. Also the strings are two sounds in my opinion, the higher one goes higher as the lower (more bass-y) goes lower in the progression, so you need to keep that in mind. It has longer release, which makes it overlap itself, there's also probably some lfo modulation (maybe for velocity?) with speed that alternates, or it's phasing (but I don't really think it actually is phasing) or it's just the effect of unison. The waveform could be from a wavetable plugin, but I can't really tell, though the harmonics aren't very even. Maybe the the lower one is a saw that has a stable low pass (no keytracking) with a sine wave that is one octave lower to provide bass, but I'm just speculating. I'm pretty sure you could get this sound if you were to use serum, it's just a very capable and flexible plugin. Also definitely use unison for this one, play around with it. Also, of course use a nice reverb, but that's probably very obvious. And lastly maybe chorus can help you to achieve this sound. Overal though your best bet is to look at this sound in spectrum analyzer and spectogram and see what the harmonic information is and use that (and your ears of course) as a guide. Maybe some HG Fortune's plugins could have some wavetables that could sound alike, or any wave-table plugin. Honestly I think you could achieve this in many substantive synths like Sytrus, or additive like Harmor, all you need is an option to manipulate the oscillator more precisely. But it's definitely all about having the right wave form, separating each sound into it's correct frequency range, using correct spatial tools (unison, chorus, reverb and etc. (also the lower frequencies could benefit from being more mono)) and just tweaking it a lot.
  18. Many of you are probably familiar with HG Fortune, he made pretty great and unique sounding plugins. Most of them are very good at producing long, diverse and evolving pads and drones. A lot of them are wavetable synths, some with interesting mechanics and options, and some also have "the lazy button" which randomly generates a preset for you (which can be really fun). The man unfortunately passed away in 2014, however on the bright side all of the pro versions of his plugins are now freeware. If you somehow haven't stumbled upon these yet, give them a go. The only downside is that they are all 32 bit as far as I'm aware, and some might feel bit outdated maybe (but just maybe). I also recommend reading the manual first for some of them. Anyways, here's where you can download them: Individually - http://www.vst4free.com/index.php?dev=HG_Fortune&l=0 Bundled together - https://archive.org/details/HGFortuneNFG
  19. So hi again, I hope all of you are having an amazing day so far! Somewhat recently I've came to a realization that I would like to make it as a producer. I've been aimlessly twiddling in FL Studio for years as a kid, initially just for fun and because I loved music in general, making one monstrosity after another, but slowly improving and learning as time went by. I've came to the point now where I'm confident with my abilities, but at the same not quite at the professional level. And so I would very much appreciate some unbiased feedback and I figured this would probably the best place to do it. Besides psy*whatever* communities are usually amazing, so why not. Peace Here's the track:
