You cannot debate this.
>>86863253Can you use a trip so we know who to scroll past
>>86863262Yep, you have no debate alright.
When producing a track, do most performing artists try to record all in one take or slice up bits where they fuck up and try again. Example: bassist recording for the band's song. Verse is fine but following chorus he fucks up. Do studios usually record all over again or keep the verse that was fine but have him redo just the chorus? Not concerned about being a faggot saying "lmao thats cheating", just curious.
>>86863253>Why yes, I don't care what DAW you are using as long you have fun making music. How could you tell?
good morning sirs.I don't know jack shit about digital music production, but I wanna learn how to make soundtracks for my game. what should I use? I've been using beepbox much appreciated sirs,es ienīstu sievietes.

>>86858315so Jazz theory tends to have just a few set of rules and they're up to the person playing to choose how much to follow them, few things are strict, one of them being that you tend to use 7th chords because they're richer, another one is the usage of flats instead of sharps in notation.There is a lot to it but nothing is about just copying what's come before, its just knowing the main chords and notes in a piece and improvising depending on your mood or what you feel the audience wants.There's also stuff like swinging 8th notes, and this makes something either sound cooler or hotter (not that simple but that's Jazz for u babyyyyy)

Are Roland controllers any good?
I really like making extra af IDM and footwork inspired drums but they often take up too much room to have a bass and I’m too stuck in the traditional mindset where it *feels* too wrong to not have a bass

Anyone here work out of an external ssd? If so which one would you recommend reliability wise (I dont care much for speed)
i may be missing something obvious but is there any effect or VST or DAW feature that can edit the velocity of notes in a MIDI clip based on CC input?what i want to do is record everything without velocity modulation then play the midi clip while inputting CC values on a controller to edit the velocities after the notes were already laid down with their static velocities.i only found tools that automatically map random velocities for notes which is nice but i want to do it manually and in time by just fiddling a fader while a clip plays to determine the velocity of the playing clip's notes. AFAIK this style of recording parameters can only be done with envelopes, slide, pressure, etc.
>>86863039>what are the best waves plug-ins in current year?The good old ones are still the best (RVox, MaxxBass, MetaFlanger, etc.). Almost everything in the Abbey Road bundle is good. I also like OVox, Vitamin, Smack Attack, MV2. And I use the H-Series constantly, especially H-Delay (my favorite delay) and H-EQ.

Maybe we could vote on that for that album?I can't imagine anyone using a serious artist name on a 4chan album, and if they do, that's their prerogative. In my case, I would like to do a parody of an existing love song and make up an artist name that gives a nod to the original artist's name.

hey now surge is pretty fookin good
>>86868961Ngl I downloaded and only used it for a nightHate the interface
currently looking at a Zenbook 14X. I remember the last time I tried producing on a laptop there was a good bit of latency. Is this just the norm or can it be circumvented?
>>86869034how much latency were you experiencing? did you use asio4all or an interface with asio drivers?
>>86868973trash interface but good sound and powerful
I have zero experience making music but I've recently got an itch to start making drum and bass (specifically liquid/atmospheric). Using a popular DAW like Abelton, is it relatively hard to making something like the following? It's hard for me to gauge how much time commitment it would take to get to something similar to this. I'm not trying to cut corners or expect to make music in a few hours, just seeing if it's worth even trying without prior experience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfIW5kNOFb4
>>86869633Maybe 6 months or less to start pumping decent liquid if you study well enough, listen to each element of that track, it's not that hard compared to something like neurofunk
>>86864297im an idiot. there's a velocity midi effect in live.
>>86869633A few months of daily practice should be enough desu

>>86871338advertising (as cringe as it is) works. someone will see you, get curious, and then look you up, maybe even like your shit. hating it is also good, as you now got your name/product/etc. in people's minds. advertising is insidious in the way it works, but it works.
>>86871808Off topic, but I've seen a nokia communicator 9000i advertised for cheap because "the touch screen does not work"The phone never had a touch screen
>>86871438>Idk I was just scrolling facebook on internet explorer and all of a sudden it was just there. So weirdSpare the sarcasm, I've never seen a tiktok ad neither on my phone or actual PC. YOU DID IT WILLINGLY. You monster.
>>86871890>Off topic, but I've seen a nokia communicator 9000i advertised for cheap because "the touch screen does not work">The phone never had a touch screen
>>86871858Advertising as a concept works obviously, and even when shit “outrages” or makes you cringe the corporate goal is solely name recognition and making you consider them; for an artist or any sole entity the wrong type of attention will absolutely fuck you up and make people not want anything to do with you.Stuff like advertising generic songs in such a straightforward way just screams “desperate amateur”- everybody knows it’s about product/song placement now>>86871902Idek what you’re sayingThe only reason I stopped scrolling is to mark “not interested” so I don’t start seeing musician targeted content
>>86871934>Idek what you’re sayingIt means you're not behind 7 ad-blockers. Room to improve, no worries.
>>86871934> for an artist or any sole entity the wrong type of attention will absolutely fuck you up and make people not want anything to do with you.unless it's involving the artist and child rape, then no. it won't fuck you up. there's billions of people on the planet that all don't think the same. there's been no shortage of artists who work failed to appeal to anyone in their own country but have had top selling songs in other countries.
>>86871971..??Idk what else to say if you don’t think getting me too’d or exposed for plagiarism or some shit might have a net negative effect on somebody’s career
>>86872003let me get this right: you're against advertising as a musician because you might be exposed by some "me too" bullshit? you can't live life afraid of retarded whores with a twitter account. they have no power over anyone. there's this little thing called evidence that's the key. anyone can write anything they like, doesn't mean it's factual. that's been a huge problem with that movement for entitled incel whores. it encouraged all kinds of degenerate and compulsive lying simply to try and destroy people out of jealousy. many campaigns failed in spectacular fashion. that isn't something to worry about AT ALL unless you're so dangerously fucking retarded that you dig your own hole even deeper.
>>86872003If you're afraid of people seeing your music why be on the internet at all?
>>86868582A lot of things to unpack in your preset by the way, for a beginner. It's a good exercise to reverse engineer what does what
i wish i could've been around when people were making dance music with their amiga computers. even though people who actually lived it would probably never go back and tell you it was actually horrible i'm still jealous of them.
my monitoring situation is fucking dire
>>86874498What's stoping you from using Protracker now? The culture might not be the same but there still is one.
>>86874770well yeah but it's more about the context of it all rather than the hardware/software. like for example someone making a cheesy techno track in protracker using late 80s sounds today is mostly making it for nostalgia purposes and that's how most people see it too. back then they were making modern music. you know what i mean? there's tons of intangible stuff that gets lost to time.you're right though it's pretty cool that there's still a scene for it at least.
>>86864916>I would love to have artist names, however. Maybe we could vote on that for that album?Sure.Vote on allowing artist names for the 5th album:https://strawpoll.com/polls/YVyP25z82gNPoll closes in ~48 hours (May 11th, 23:45 UTC)
Be real with me guys, is Logic Pro good? Worth switching to iOS for?
>>86874825Well you could try making modern music on Protracker. Mix the old with the new. Has anyone done Amiga dubstep yet?
>>86875112Logic is the best traditional-style DAW (traditional meaning "not FL Studio or Ableton") with the best stock plugins and samples, and well worth the switch to macOS.But it also depends on what's your current DAW, and how much experience you have with it. If you're a Cubase power user, switching would not be an efficient decision for you. If you have little experience and are currently using Reaper or Studio One, you will be blown away by Logic.
when do theseplug-ins go on sale? should i wait ?
>>86874825It was probably a bitter joy to make great chiptunes on Amiga. You were crafting dope songs with mind-blowing tricks and unique aesthetics... yet you were basically a nobody in a dead end, creating tracks that were considered amateurish by everyone, with zero public recognition and zero chances to get your music heard outside of the obscure Amiga nerd community. Yes, you were a good chiptune musician. But who cared?
Is there any software that can isolate keyboards (not piano) and guitars? From what I tried, everything is merging keyboards and guitars together.
>>86863148yeah imagine having multiple hobbies you fat fuck
>>86869392I tried asio4all but it just wouldnt work. Flasio had a good bit of latency tho
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YojtJSLMfH4what kind of patch is playing the chords? sounds like a filtered saw wave with maybe slight chorus to me but can't get anything similar.then again, i also thought that James Blake Wilhelm Scream was using filtered saws when it was actually fucking pulse waves so what do i know
>>86875509more like flaccidio with how it has limp latency amirite amirite? xdidk man it all depends on what you think is acceptable latency. just to give you an anecdote on mobile performance w/ specs i get around 12ms latency as reported by Live on my laptop that has a 10th gen i5.

>>86876379jk i had my buffer size really high because i had to change sample rates to check what settings people nornally use. i actually get around 8ms trying to minimize it. apparently thats still slow.
>>868764146-8ms isnt all that bad but 12 seems kinda horrendous. Hopefuly I can get asio4all working somehow
>>86875956soundtoys devil loc and dmg eq guitar rig 6 pro
>>86875236>saley not just sail instead of waiting for a sale mode and obtain them all for free? its an objectively better experience over a legitimate copy with an iCock license that you have to etch onto a usb or something. Idk maybe you'd rather buy for psych reasons or you want to be supportive which is based.
>>86876470eh someone can correct me if im wrong but i think your interface is going to mostly determine latency.dont get your hopes up for asio4all because i just tried it and the lowest i could get it without crackling was 13.1ms with a 208 buffer size @44.1khz. i can only achieve the 8ms undistorted audio on my laptop using my interface and its drivers.
>>86876655ye I should prolly invest in an interface any time now

Any Reaper heads know why the meter doesn't show the same max value as "TruePk"Is it a different type of peak? I want them to match, is there a benefit to having both values?
>>86883876Only if you KNOW you'll make use of the pads and knobs, you could just get the cheapest keyboard-only controller like my dogshit M-Audio and play drums like the Japanese Creative rep https://youtu.be/h73kd6wsBq0
>>86882441i don't get it
>>86884396True peak is the peak when the audio is upsampled to 192khz. Sometimes they can go above 0db, though that means your audio clips a lot and it's better to reduce loudness. You don't need to worry about them being different as long as it's below 0db.

>>86886925To praraphrase the greatest man who ever lived, Idi Amin, if the referee is against you, the only way to have a guaranteed victory is to knock the other guy out.
>>86887082MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUTTTidk what you mean by that
>>86887224It means you need to be so good at making music that they can't help but respect you.Otherwise you'll rely on them liking you as a person, which, as I understand, is the obstacle you're facing.
>>86887258that's what I thought you meant but I didn't want you to meanJokes aside I just joined a server for this producer who I just got into and the only reason I did is they liked/reposted my track on soundcloud... so i'm *assuming* they fw me- I don't want to be too forward with "HEY COLLAB BROOO?" partially because it seems scummy, but also because there's a small little community of artists I like and I don't want to be that guy
>>86887303>I don't want to be too forwardYeah don't do that, don't be annoying and also be useful to the server and people are going to like you, repost other people's stuff too and give good feedback, etc. Getting to collab is just like getting to have sex, if you can collab with a person then you could have sex with them.
>>86887303I'm a complete autist shut-in so take my words with a grain of salt, but I used to be an extreme zero-inhibition extrovert, and what I would ideally do (if I weren't a sperg) is to hang out and participate in "easy to interject in" conversations with something light, like a non-controversial opinion or joke, just to make your presence seen, and gradually lower your threshold for how interjectable the conversations are, until you're close enough that you can get into fights and whatnot.Or you can just straight up make your entrance by asking a question that you know is going to start a discussion, but is also the kind of question that isn't weird to go to a community to ask. Something like "hi, I've been trying to <do x> for some time now but I always get <negative drawback>, does anyone know how to minimize <drawback> while maintaining <benefits>?".Or an even easier (and IMO much better) way, just go with "hey I saw you liked my song and checked your stuff out, I really like <song title> and <song title>" and if you're not giant assholes (in which case I assume you don't want to be their friend) they're gonna respond positively and you can develop the conversation organically based on what they say.Ultimately you're trying to develop a friendship, so act in a way that's conducive to that, and they'll probably reciprocate.This isn't a job interview.

maybe a dumb question but are the drum sounds used here from any recognizable machine/combination of drum machines? they sound very unique of that era i can picture a million 90s pop songs that have these drums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTWEVl-XHLY

>>86889742i have a janky pinky cause i sprained it really bad a while ago so playing piano isn't the full fledged experience it should be.what im getting at is that sometimes we just have to deal with physical impairments. the bright side is that at least you can compensate for your disability a little bit.

PLEASE tell me there's a way to make the Ableton browser search display shit you're searching for directly instead of just showing you the uppermost folder.
>>86898136i dont have any way to interface with 5pin midi in my setup so thats why in my case i either had to eat the price difference or get an interface with midi to accept it.i forgot the expandability of the fcb1010 is a little limited. and yeah man, looping is awesome. i also use it to just transpose and change keys so i dont have to change fingerings because i prefer certain keys over others.
>>86897588Cant you just brute force it? I mean you know a key k of a pitch p-1 is the same distance to k with p as k with p + 1so you can just take each permutation of the notes in y and sum the distance of each note to each and every note in the first chord and then pick the one with shortest distance.
>>86898414ahahahahahahahahahaha>>86898491who doesn’t? c# is toxic, eb and d have hairpins, fuck gb though B is based a and e aren’t too bad but inconvienent, G C F Bb are based ab is a bitch but deserves special mention, parallel 7ths feel good on this one for me, and when it comes to contrary 10ths in a baroque style, for me it’s c minor
>>86898563you're assuming im of average intelligence but im severely below...im gonna need some time to digest your permutation suggestion. i was trying to use modulo like >>86897452 suggested and came up with inversions that just put the note closest to C in the bass.so this was my implentation of modulo 12 just to show that i am actually trying to think about this stuff:i take the incoming midi note, add/subtract the transposition, take that number and modulo 12 it, and add that number to the closest C to the incoming midi note, giving me the a useful chord but not exactly my original goalso if i want a Gmaj7 inversion with the member closest to C in the bass (D) i apply that formula for every chord member.43 = 43(43 + 4) mod 12 = 11(43 + 7) mod 12 = 2(43 + 11) mod 12 = 643 = MIDI note 43 = G36 + 11 = 47 = Maj3rd above G36 + 2 = 38 = Perf4th below G36 + 6 = 42 = min2nd below Gyeah... just thinking out loud here to show that im trying.im really trying to rub my brain cells together here and i hope permutations are the path if i cant somehow use a modulo operation. hope im not embarassing myself.
>>86898827I think you can probably show that a greedy algorithm will work, for each key, pitch -1, 0, +1, in y just pick the one that is closest to some note in x, so you don't have to consider all permutations.
>>86898827>D is closer to C than B
>>86898827schizo here but like mod12 table and then use like say 0,4,7 for major and then frame shift this say and then like to answer say C to G closest would be 047 to 11,2,7 so you give it the target from C to G and it respondsindividual operations would have to be like for each chord movement so a V-1 would be +11,-2,0i guess the subtraction would be your mod
>>86898873i knew i was embarassing myself haha. oh well.>>86898857dude, you're speaking latin to me. im feeling so dumb. but if you are providing the keys to open the door to the solution, im going to thank you in advance for when it clicks.my current thinking now is that wouldnt the patch need to keep a cache of previously played chords that the patch spit out? totally unrelated to your algorithm but thats where my brain is at now.

>>86898938picrel is how im feeling. i appreciate the further help though.
>>86898827You have to substract 1-11 before the mod and add it back after to choose which note will be at the center of the chord.

>>86900376I also saw Deftones in 2012 at the start of their Koi no Yokan tour. They were great, the crowd was awesome as well.Pretty sure Chino's voice is absolutely fried at this point, but damn if he still doesn't try.
>>86899400i hate to ask for a spoonfeed but can i trouble you to put what you're saying in a formula?so if i were to input midi note 55 and ask for it to give me... i dont even know what!because at this point im spinning in circles trying to think about what i even want out of the patch. is this a dead end trying to center transpositions around inputted notes? e.g. if you ask for a 5th (operation of +7) does it just always add +(-5) inverting your asking of a 5th above to a 4th below? it's kind of limited use then because it's just going to give me chords built as close to the inputted note as possible.what i think i want instead is like... okay i want all major chords built on inputted single notes BUT for each new chord have its chord members built as close as possible to the cache of notes last played.so if i want all 3rds and 5ths above inputted notes and want a I -> IV -> V it would go like...1. input note midi note# 55 for the I chord in G major2. notes 59 and 50 simultaneously appear in addition to your inputted 553. input note 48 for the IV chord4. notes 55 and 52 simultaneously appear in adition to the inputted 48.5. input note 506. notes 57 and 54 appeari may have made a mistake somewhere in my voice leading but does this outline the patch goal clearly enough? is this even useful?ahhh im so stupid. idk. im spinning my wheels feeling like im making this really complicated when its not
>>86900337Korn was awesome, funky grooves and sledge hooks worked so well together
Not sure how useful it is to you guys, since it doesn't take into account anything about voice leading, but I tried making a patch that:>finds the lowest note in a chord>finds the distance between each note in the chord and the lowest>if the distance is higher than the parameter in the [MaxDistance] dial (by default 12 semitones), it shifts it down by the number of semitones in MaxDistance>if the distance is over a multiple of MaxDistance, it shifts it down by a multiple of MaxDistance, so if it's set to 12, you always stay in the same octave range.The expression is:a - ((c * ((a - b) / c)) * (a > b))In Max:[expr $i1 - (($i3 * (($i1 - $i2) / $i3)) * ($i1 > $i2))]Just know that if MaxDistance isn't set to 12, it will shift to notes outside of your key, so if you do that, put a Scale device after it.If you want it to only shift down by octaves even when MaxDistance is set to something less than 12:a - ((12 * ((a - b) / c)) * (a > b))In Max:[expr $i1 - ((12 * (($i1 - $i2) / $i3)) * ($i1 > $i2))]Just know that with this version, if MaxDistance is less than 12, the higher a note is compared to the lowest in the chord, the more octaves it will be shifted down, so it can go much lower than the desired range.Unfortunately there's some bug with note-offs that I can't be bothered to fix, but I hope at least some part of this is useful to you.https://we [DOT] tl/t-knwBc6YS2k
>>86900943Forgot to mention that the Threshold parameter is just the interval of time within which it detects incoming midi notes as chords.Since there is no such thing as simultaneous notes in MIDI (they're always in sequence), to compare them and see which one's the lowest I need to group them first with the [quickthresh] object, and that knob tells it how close they need to be to be considered a chord.

>>86901105Glad you found it helpful.I also forgot to mention that in the expression in the first post I forgot to say that:a ($i1) is the input noteb ($i2) is the lowest notec ($i3) is the MaxDistance value (in semitones)Should be obvious if you're a Max user, but it's worth saying for everyone else (even though I'm not sure it would work elsewhere)

>>8690303032 gigs is too little for music. a full song of instrument libraries made out of hundreds of lossless samples each will add up to more than 32gb FAST

>>86903030You can make music on 3 gigs of RAM but your options will be fewer, back in the day people didn't use giant multi-sample libraries and CPU hog VST's. 32gig might start to sweaty if you want to write orchestral trailer music, but people are mainly lazy nowadays and want 64+ gigs to not have to worry about track count or freeze audio tracks I made entire albums on an EeePC with 1gig of ram in 2010, but that was when freezing tracks started getting popular and nobody outside of Hollywood cared about big sample libraries. Windows XP was also a breeze to make music on, some producers still use it with a computer never connected to the internet. Optimization is important and some modern computer builds still have issues with latencyFL Studio or Ableton is fine, look up free VST synths and FX and don't bloat your folders with pirated software. grab some free drum sample packs and just start tinkering
>>86903538have you tried running limitless into pro L?
>>86900566Yeah, I'm sorry, my patching style is trial and error and I was wrong. What you can do with modulo is keeping notes inside a given octave. But this octave has to start somewhere that you have to choose.1/ choose the lowest pitch of this octave2/ substract it from all your input notes3/ mod those notes4/ add the lowest back5/ see if it fits your needs, if not: back to 1/The boundaries of this octave will make the inversions for you via modulo.
>>86903538Stuff like that is mainly about keeping everything as dry and squarewave-like as possibleClipping then stacking limiters is fine for most purposes, if you're having loudness problems it's usually a mix issue and not master chain.
>>86904281I don’t have limitless nah>>86904345Managing dynamics all the way throughLoudness really isn’t an issue for me these days. Whenever I try to make stuff like this I always try to skip to the end and fall on my face though lmao :(
>>86904335>What you can do with modulo is keeping notes inside a given octavei kinda see that now. >But this octave has to start somewhere that you have to choose.yeah im feeling lazy now but earlier i was trying to get something working where the last inputted note was that "somewhere that you have to choose". this way you could have a patch where you can play your controller with octave displacement but the sounding notes will all move with little motion. but i gave up at the point where i couldn't get it to cut notes off... it was jumping octaves... idk it just wouldnt work well but the pitches were correct as in every A produced a different A.if you're using Max i found this handy modulo object someone else wrote because AFAIK Max doesn't have mod like PD does. so if anyone here was trying this stuff and didn't find a modulo method just make an object this vexpr object:>vexpr ((($i1-($i2<0))%$i2)+abs($i2))%$i2 @scalarmode 1and set the right inlet with the number to mod by and usually the left inlet would be the note you're working with.i think i get your method but patching it is another story as im done for now on this stuff.

>>86905921Wym just do the opposite of scoop bro lol?
>>86905958I'm a guitar newfag I'm not sure what you mean anon.
>>86905974Okay sorry for joking thenIt’s kind of a running trope/joke for modern metal bands to scoop the mids and have more low end/low tunings I’m their tones whereas old thrash etc has a much smaller mid-heavy sound. I’m absolutely not an expert (*very* casual guitar player lately) but as far as impulse responses the more modern bands I listen to tend to use mesa-rectifier/Marshall 1960 whatever cabs so I go for those, whereas .... I don’t know what old bands used; I’d assume Marshall/peavey 5150 and more diverse stuff but I don’t actually know
>>86904502Max does have a standalone modulo object. It's [%].
>>86906015Thrash metal started the mid scooping meme, but it's fairly clean gain and doesn't add all the djent frills. Thrash is mostly double or multitracked scooped palm muting through a peavey 5150 or Marshall jc800, maybe a tube screamer or chorus pedal in places
Good morning /g/how is everyone doing today? never participated in this gen before, I never participated in >>>mu/prod until I recently. it's bad for my ego to post or lurk there though and I dont wanna keep dunkin on losers. anybody else /nebula4/crew here? n4 and the dsp56300 emu made me lose like 3 months of my life dicking around. also, just found some cool shit on youtube 20 min ago.... crazy shit is being done with koala sampler, the state of ios music production is pretty wild. just tried it with an mpd18 and was quite impressed. was gonna post on /mu/ but they probably would get mad cus it isn't a DDL for a .zip of midi progressions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLuwKKbtzyA
>>86906920>anybody else /nebula4/crew here? I used nebula 3 for a while, there was a compressor I don't recall the name of that just blew me away, hadn't heard anything like that from software before. I didn't vibe with the CPU draw, bugs and general obtuseness of the stuff so I eventually abandoned it in favor of hardware and cloud processing. Nowadays there are also more plugins that sound about as good as nebulamy experience of ipad music production was paying a lot for a device whose battery will be dead in 5 years, and the environment is painfully limited and messy with midi/io, file handling etc.
>>86906351thats funny because i thought there was only [%~]. shows how in the cloud my head is. i searched the reference for modulo and only found that signal modulo but you're right, [%] was in plain sight the whole time.the whole discussion was over my head but the forum where i got that modulo vexpr from described there being different types of modulo math or something. there's like a Euclidean modulo method and truncated division. i think what i posted was euclidean and [%] is truncated but i dont know as again, the discussion was over my head. i was just script kiddie copy and pasting.
>>86907081You don't really need modulo for this.In my expression here >>86900943 I wrapped octaved without it and IMO it works much more elegantly.Since MIDI notes are all integers, any division will just disregard the remainder, effectively doing the opposite of what a modulo does.You can get that number and multiply it by 12 to get the number of semitones to shift the note by.The part that does>($i1 - $i2) / $i3)Means:>input note minus lowest note (gives you the distance in semitones)>divided by the maximum distance you set (12 or whatever)Now you have how many octaves (or multiples of the max distance, in case it's not 12) up it is, so you multiply by 12 (or by the max distance parameter) to get how many semitones you want it to go down.This whole thing is then multiplied by:>($i1 > $i2)which is a boolean that returns 1 if the input note is bigger than the lowest note, and 0 if it's not.So if the note is bigger than the lowest, it shifts it by the number calculated above then multiplies it by 1 (effectively allowing it to go through), and if it's the same or smaller than the lowest note, it shifts it by the number multiplied by zero (so it effectively shifts it by zero, which basically turns off the entire thing if the input note isn't bigger than the lowest note).Even if you decided to make something that takes voice leading rules into account, this is still a better way to implement the wrapping part than using modulo, because it does the whole calculation for how many semitones you need to shift the input note in one single move.But I think this whole approach isn't the best for the user's perspective, because it establishes a new range for each chord, so if the lowest note is significantly higher than the previous chord's lowest note, it will still make a big jump.I think a device that lets you set a center note and a range of notes above and below it allows, would work much better, as it would wrap all the chords to the same range.
>>86907055>ipad music production how long ago? I can't imagine considering an iPad to be a feasible replacement for a daw in any way, but idk. I like being able to kill time when i'm out and about by sketching out ideas. koala is good for that, but im realizing that not all ios production is really a walled garden. Just interesting to see new workflows, and lately I've been very into restricting my toolset. I use live BTW and I just can't seem to get shit finished lately, and the amount of options is part of it. Anyway, koala isn't that good, im getting an og sp404 today :^)
>>86907243i just assumed that since i wanted to deal with two notes (incoming one and last one) it would have taken more than copy and pasting for me to use your method lol. i guess i could have just used zl sort to figure out which of those two were the bass though but i have a short attn span and didnt.and when you wrote that it didnt take into account voice leading earlier i also assumed it was a non-starter for my purposes and i glossed over your expression's utility. but since you say>Even if you decided to make something that takes voice leading rules into account, this is still a better way i'm trying to come to terms with it.yesterday i did glance at it and was confused when you wrote the boolean because i had no idea what a boolean was. i sort of just hit mild confusion and went back to trying modulo. i didnt know the boolean would spit out a binary number but now i understand it at a shallow level.>so if the lowest note is significantly higher than the previous chord's lowest note, it will still make a big jump.i see. i had the same problem with trying to force modulo to work anyway.im glad you're engaging with this topic though, makes me feel like im going to be able to get a patch of use out of it all just by casually thinking around the topic hopefully.
>>86907497Godspeed my friend.I don't think you're as dumb as you seem to think. You're just inexperienced so you're not used to this sort of thinking.Keep at it and it will become easier and easier, even if now it seems like something you have to be innately smart for.
>>86907055you're a man of great culture, btw. Nebula 3 was a shitshow from what i've heard. Obv anything acustica makes is basically retarded and clunky and feels 3rd worldy, but I'll be honest, i use nebula and 3rd party libs in every stage of production for myself and recording others. Sound design, gain staging, panning, console emulation, distortion, harmonic enhancement, space and ambiance, I sum in nebula half the time. I do all my work on a base macbook pro 13, first m1, 8gb ram and 256. I loosely follow a traditional analog recording workflow, and man. I wish I could move all to hardware but i dont make a ton of money yet, no neetbux, and mentally ill af. However, I've owned some pretty top hardware before, and i've spent a lot of time in studios with racks that would make anybody who's into engineering cum. >Nowadays there are also more plugins that sound about as good as nebuladid you use third party libraries at all? I'm on top of getting ITB results that are indistinguishable man, its an addiction to me, it's a serious problem in my life. But, i can tell you that fucking nothing holds a candle, and very ew things come even within the same realm of nebula 4 with Tim Petherick, Cupwise, and alexB libraries. Plus azzimov's skins?? ooooof. I hate the damn plugin, fuck the company, but i look at it as a worthwhile price to pay for the sheer results you can achieve ITB with those devs libraries. The only possible comparison to nebula I've touched or found is external DSPing expansions, like UAD, apogee, etc. But, with audiogridder? shit man, a mac mini c2d from 08 or 09 has me able to run 2-10 or so instances of nebula per track on 12 track projects. no freezing, no dropout, never above 75% cpu, no bouncing tracks. idk, sorry im autistic and passionate about this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9603MvS9Mk is a TLA-100 vs tim petherick's sampling of one. It's the only comparison between hardware I can find, everything else is cloud vs neb.
>>86907541ty for the encouraging words, dude. and yeah maybe i am being pessimistic about it all falsely believing a lack innate ability is too crippling. but the desire for automating a process i usually have to pause to think about keeps me at it whenever i get bored with other aspects of music.
