Does anyone here still buy CD's?
If so, post your collection.

Digital is the only acceptable format for music. Physical media is a pointless waste of money.
except download isn't as dynamic as a cd. You can import in any number of different formats with cds, flac, wav, mp4, aac - you can't upsample with a format for example mp3 to flac. A cd gives you a reference, a starting point
Digital files are okay only if you download for them free, but physical media is way better design wise and for archival purposes. Also, a collection of files is a collection of nothing.
For what purpose do you need a variety of file formats? After a certain point the audio quality is at its peak and any further quality does not increase the listeners experience. You just need one file of high quality.

Physical media is not better design-wise. It takes up space and requires far more resources to create and distribute. It is wasteful. A collection of files is a collection of music. The value of music is the listening experience, not the packaging. Physical media is a collection of unnecessary garbage compared to the far more compact, efficient and portable innovations of digital.

How to get into club-oriented electro music like deep house or chill-out?

I'm used to only listening to full albums by real artists, but this seem like such an ephemeral, remix-oriented culture. How to get into?

give an example pls
I'm not sure what kind of club music is popular where you live, but in some clubs in Amsterdam and Leiden, yellow claw-esque music is really popular.
Also, kygo is pretty popular at the moment

I like those two youtube channels, they have lots of mixtapes and playlists, although it's more like "driving in summer" type of music than "drop x and dance like crazy" music

they're very unfriendly to new people but just listen to the tracks they post and explore artists/record labels you like

no its not a bass its a baritone guitar. it was named before there was a proper name for what it is.

pretty sure if you used bass strings it would kill the guitar, very least it would be impossible to intonate and vibrato would be worthless

Got my first electric after years of playing classical. Saving up for a better amp now.
Aw man, that sucks. I still think I'm gonna go for it though. But what actually makes the difference between a baritone guitar and a bass. Six string basses aren't tuned E to e but most baritone guitars don't go as low as a bass vi I think. Can't it be something else?
orientation is the same as standard I think just tuned to B so its B standard. by default, I think anyway.
Bas vi is tuned E to e, an octave lower than E standard on guitar.

Mix is cluttered, lyircs are weak. Songwriting is strong, transitions are fine, the playing is FUCKING SOLID, like right on the beat. So yea try to work on those first 2 and you're golden.

>mfw still have my old pirated FL8 and too lazy to find a recent one
Question: does anyone know of a drum pack that has a good selection of toms? Most packs don't have any... Just snares, kick and "percussion".
Failing that, how would I go about bringing up all the toms I've got in a list on ableton. I've got plenty of kits but I don't want to go through them all, I want to play the toms one after another. Surprised I don't know how to do this yet.... Thanks in advance.

Addictive drums is cool
If you have Ableton Live suite you can download the session drums multi mic pack. If not there's probably a torrent for it somewhere. Anyway that has loads of great toms in it. It's all in the processing though.

What do now ?



That's some serious amount of wetness


I hate trap but it's well produced

You have 10 seconds to name a rock band from the last 25 years that is both critically acclaimed and culturally relevant. Please note that commercial success is not synonymous with cultural relevance.

Impossible Mode: No Nirvana.

Oh wait, you can't.

R.I.P Rock

>The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Franz Ferdinand, Oasis, Bloc Party, The Libertines, Blur, Pulp, Suede, Interpol, and everything Jack White related are not culturally relevant
>Muse, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Pearl Jam, Mumford & Sons, and Red Hot Chili Peppers are not critically acclaimed
>The Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, Ween, Pavement and Modest Mouse are far too niche to be considered culturally relevant.
>R.E.M., Bruce Springsteen, and U2 have not been critically acclaimed in the last 25 years.
>Radiohead and Arcade Fire are not rock bands.

>culturally relevant
They're not exactly obscure, but they're not well known to the general public, and haven't influenced any artists that have had any sort of cultural impact.
>not well known
MBV put shoegaze into the mainstream.
NMH was name dropped on Parks & Rec 5 times
GYBE was name dropped in Pineapple Express
They're culturally relevant enough to be name dropped on well known TV shows and movies
There you go
You have a very warped perception of the mainstream. Being namedropped in movies and T.V shows doesn't mean you're mainstream; it mean that a couple writers are into those bands and wanted to throw them in. Top ten singles and #1 albums make you mainstream. When those bands are headlining tours that sell out 10,000+ capacity venues, then they can be considered mainstream.
how about radiohead
10,000 is pretty modest

too rugged and not effeminate enough tbh
Surely there's a market for that kind of singer? Maybe slightly older than the late elementary school/middle school crowd of 1D, but I can definitely see 15 year old girls going crazy over him.
I know some girls that are over 20 and are heavy into Zayn (not the rest of 1D though)
if he had the right songwriters and producers he could fill the spot of Enrique englasias. all the chicks would want him
I can easily see it, but the most lucrative market is girls from middle school through high school. 20 year old girls being into him wouldn't make him a cultural phenomenon on the scale of 1D.

What are some good, simple, composition exercises?

Adapting black metal for shitty synthesizers or orchestral samples is also tons of fun
10/10 lyricism would read again
limit urself to only certain notes
This thread has motivated me to learn some more music theory and put some thought into my guitar hackery. Thanks errbody.
