Anyone have insight into what sort of synthesis would have been used for these tracks?
Particularly the bell/chime sounds

Also, synth general I guess

(pic related, I have my eye on a blofeld at the moment)

That first one sounds like a bunch of vibraphone notes sampled and played at different trigger points, second one maybe sounds like granular filters.
Also get a Virus snow instead.

>where
your house, or with a drum instructor
>how
you really only "need" a drum pad and two sticks to start learning the basics, shit like "right, left, right, left," "left, right, left right." cannot stress this enough, play very slowly, play with a click track, and play without tension. if you're straining, you're going to get tendonitis or an aneurysm. research grips and pick what's most comfortable to you relative to the style of music you want to play. I wouldn't recommend a traditional grip if you're going to play death metal.
>what kit
try to snag something really cheap to start with, it WILL sound like total shit. this is a good opportunity to get into tuning drums as well. you'll probably smash a few heads if you aren't careful. bass wood drum kits sound like shit, but they're really cheap. even if you spend $2000 on some bubinga birch bullshit your heads will probably be tuned like shit, you'll probably warp the drums because of your shit tuning, and you're going to play like shit anyway so it's not a big deal. I played with a $5 kit for over 3 years, the satisfaction I felt when I got a "real" one was overwhelming.

Go for something relatively barebones to start. I'd recommend an Acrolite snare drum, they're old, but they sound so fucking good and are about $50-$100. you might have to replace the snare throw off for something more modern, but if you can use a screwdriver it's really simple. just gonna list everything in greentext for readability

>1. Two hi-hat cymbals, these come in pairs, I had Meinl HCS, cheap enough, they sound shit and metallic, but it'll be fine for a few years.
>2. A light weight ride cymbal. Crash rides ARE a meme, however, it's cheaper to replace one cymbal if you fuck it up
>3. Bass/kick drum
>4. Snare, I'd say opt for an Acrolite after you figure out tuning on your cheapshit starter snare
>5. A hi tom and a low/floor tom if they come with your cheap kit, these really sound like shit at the low end though
>>

Is learning theory really useless and potentially a negative knowledge? I've seen established musicians claim they know people invested in theory that cant make a decent song for their life. Where exactly do you stop learning theory. I'd like to know how notes and chords can impact people emotionally, is that too far?

>people invested in theory that cant make a decent song for their life
this is a bullshit non-correlation. writing songs and knowing theory are two completely different things. there will always be people who know theory yet can't write songs, and vice versa. but that has nothing to do with whether or not people know theory. there are just some people who are better at writing songs than others.

theory is literally just an established way of looking at how different notes interact with one another. even the musicians who don't know theory and claim they don't need it are still using the principles of theory to write their music. the only difference is they don't know the official names/words for what they're doing, and they had to arrive there independently.

TLDR:
it's impossible to ruin your creativity by learning theory. that's just an excuse that poser musicians tell themselves so they can justify not taking the time to learn it.
>>
>>81514620
That's because the "musicians" you know have no creativity at all. Knowledge =/= talent

Where would you start if you wanted to learn how chords effect mood? Intervals?

Gotta agree with that, I believe finger style is what separates a lot of guitarist from eachother. I've used a pick my whole guitar life and seriously learning fingerstyle such as incorporating percussion is life changing. I learned how to play slap 2 years ago and it's opened many doors for me. I am currently learning how to thump like Tosin Abasi, a challenge but really already has helped me think of new ideas.

I know that this is a stupid, low effort post, but come on man. Why compare a band known for sometimes juvenile, sometimes heartfelt, always brown music to a website known for pseuds and taking itself too seriously? It's a bit silly.
I really love ween. I don't know what it is, but there's something so fresh about them every time I give them a listen. There's something on every project I enjoy, and Mick and Aaron are really cool dudes. It's gonna sound corny, but they really are the reason I love music so much. Maybe not the whole reason, but I ever do anything creative with my life, I want to do it with as much fun as they did.
