I think you are just bothered because I do things very differently then you and typically work with a different aesthetic. Hmm... this should be a poll! :D I'm not trying to win a popularity contest here but merely trying to share things that I've learned that I wish that others had shared with me....

i liked 'nosamp' the best by far. at first, compared to the others, the snare sounded thin, but once i got used to it it sounded fine, and the ones with the snare sample sounded overly mechanical for my taste. i just like it better when the snare sounds a little different every time...that's what s...

Offending others by invalidating them and their efforts (intentionally or not) does. I think you are "reading into" or making far too many assumptions about what I am saying. I'd take my posts at face value. you do have a tendency to come across like you think you're the only person on here who's e...

Experimental Jet Set... was a pretty profound album on me at the time.

Here are several examples of some drum tracks for a production demo I am working on. ExFull.aif are the fully processed tracks. ExNoDig.aif are all digital effects removed. ExNoRoom.aif is the same with the room mic removed. ExNoMult.aif is the same sans the kick/snare mult. ExNoSamp.aif is the same...

i just wanted to add that i don't give a shit about how much anybody makes or untapped audiences/markets. the general population are just not that bright and i would feel very troubled if my aesthetic ever aligned with popular opinion. i try to make records that sound good to myself and my clients....

So you think the "indie craze" started in the 2000s? Or did I misread this? Ho boy! With the ascension of the internet in the (very) late 90s, early 2000s, independent labels began to thrive while majors began to experience rapidly decreasing sales. Thusly, the era of the "modern independent" label...

If you really can't replay it as others suggested, you can try putting chorus or vibrato effects on it to blur the pitch. An H3000 "micropitchshift" type patch can work wonders, too. It worked for all the Duran Duran vocals...

There are a number of inexpensive hardware reverbs that you can find on ebay for like under $50 that would probably do just fine for you. I'd look for something like that. It'll say on DSP, too.

it absolutely does. those drums sound horrible and fake and the whole sound of the record i find annoying and unpleasant to listen to. to me it sounds like a plastic facsimilie of a rock band. i'd rather just hear the band. i don't like the sound of in utero either, but at least it sounds like a ro...

the gentleman going by the name of dokushoka seems to be implying that a record is a failure if a bunch of people don't like it. If the goal was to produce a record that lots of people will like, then yes, its a failure. My own, personal music is horribly uncommercial and I never intended it to be ...
