I've been using FL Studio for years and really want to actually buy a license, but the ones that I can afford don't come with shit.

What's the best audio software for an electronic musician that has under 1k to burn?
Reaper is only 60$ and it is probably the best DAW out there
id never pay for software honestly

Garbage music. Why can't she learn how to sing competently and not abuse distortion like she abused Kurt? Eat a bowl of dicks for breakfast, witch. I hate you. You make me sick.

how can anyone take Pitchfork seriously anymore when they change their score from 0.8/10 to 8.5/10? their opinions are fickle and hollow.

IIRC, the bad score was for the deluxe version because they thought it was bloated with filler.
/mu/ is full of kids, they don't give a shit about music, they just want to meme about p4k, black people, pop music, etc.

>they don't give a shit about music
Objectively wrong. The whole essence of music as an artistic form of expression is to extract emotion for listeners to resonate with. Every true musician, artist, and band creates music with the sole intention of conveying emotions via the message and meaning of the song, so people could either contemplate how it relates to their intrinsic existence as a human, or regard a song as jovial fun and exuberance. In fact, art is what happens when dreams transcend our existence into a state of emotion we've never, or have yet to experience in our daily lives. Fantasies about the wand levitating the orbs to their sockets in order to unlock that marrow staircase to the door of lies is art. A sword that heals death lives in art. The palms of deities providing eternal slumber is art. Art is what happens when you learn to dream.

And by the way, if you're going to call someone underage, at least don't type like an underage brainlet with no comprehension of capitalization. 25 years have eluded me.

This came out 16 years ago

So, recently, I got into Brand New, a band I never actually knew that I knew (the very first song I heard from them was Jesus a few years ago on my local radio station), and checked out some of their work, mainly Deja Entendu, Devil and God and, most recently, Science Fiction. Apparently, this band had some sort of rivalry with Brand New a while ago, which escalated into some huge debacles between who was better or not. I never listened to any of TBS' discography, nor was I familiar with them as an existing band, so, I decided to listen to this song, which I assumed was their magnum opus or signature song.

After hearing this, I quietly pondered the melody and lyrical structure, when suddenly, a candy wrapper came from my ear. Flabbergasted, I thought it floated mysteriously from my ceiling. As I looked up, alas, nothing but a concrete structure continually supporting the roof of my house. Perplexed, yet apathetic, I went back to my muses of this son- *PLOP!* A single droplet of an unidentified specimen permeated my plywood desk. Suspicious, I peered my head towards the goo and let the aroma approach the caves of my face. A little flashback to last night's spaghetti and casserole instantly triggered my memories, as it were a lost wanderer awakening an evil deity presumed to be vanquished. Ignoring the memory the droplet gave to me, I repeated my thoughts again, until a final disturbing image pierced all my perceptions of thought. Blood splattered a prickly grass field, followed with embers from the Sun scorching the ground. A face obscured with dangling hair the shape of a shattered parabola and battered bruises arose from the flames, as a hand I recognized wrote with its own nail, "Death to Horrible Music!" I ended my musings there, and assembled them here, in the fabric of cyberspace.
Basically, this band sucks, and I hate them. Anyone who tells me that this band is good in any conceivable measure will immediately face an eternity of my hatred.
Fuck mates I need to relisten

It's so edgy, hip and autistic to make fun of Grimes. Yes...Art Angels was dumb but Visions is one of the best spacey electronic pop albums ever made. If you could put aside your edgy autistim for a little while and listen to it you might see this (you're retarded if you don't). Visiting Statue, Be A Body, Colour of Moonlight, Symphonia IX and Nightmusic are some of the best spacey electronic pop songs ever made. Of course the entire album is good but these songs in particular are just phenomenal.

its 2028. you've finally found a handful of amazing chord progressions and scales that perfectly complement them. youre currently working on your 4th album from the recording studio in your house. the callouses on your fingers are so tough theyve lost feeling completely. you play cliffs of dover to warm up. your wife is a groupie with huge tits who makes bomb grilled cheese and listens to you softly play guitar after hours of banging. life is good

Worth the price!
Meh. I'd say Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is worth the price. Maybe 1 as well.
