  1. Alarm bells are sounding in my head. You're looking to be a middleman where other people provide effort and content and surrender all creative licensing to you under the premise that you would forward youtube advertising revenue to the song creator in the future. This could be enticing if you had a channel that already has a massive following because if you don't then we could just post content to our own youtube channels and the search algorithms would return the same viewing numbers but we retain control. To give up your own creative licensing is a massive loss of control, It actua
  2. This one is for a vocaloid collab where the singer is looking for a visual novel theme. Made with Reaper
  3. Make a midi file of a piece of music. This is a request, if you can do that then PM me and I'll provide as much help as you need. There is a musical trap where the fun of learning how others create gives you the satisfaction as if you had made music and demotivates you from actually doing anything. If you need to be led then I recommend cloning music, find a song and try and replicated it as perfectly as you can and in doing so you will learn the practical skills of that musician.
  4. I would humbly disagree, each instrument has their own advantages and disadvantages mechanically and if you have a massive skill gap between one or the other then it's best to use which one you excel at. I made this thread to show lesser experienced people that there's options to help assist them make music and to perhaps discuss specific hardware for anyone looking for advice since I've been using these tools for a while. For someone who has no piano experience the ability to transfer already learned skills into a practical application immediately is something wonderful. Nobody seems to be d
  5. There's a way of recording music for us guitarists without touching the keyboard if you're not aware and I would like to bring focus to this issue! There's great options for guitarists a range of prices so I'll detail some of them as it may help you out. and I've used them all The cheapest option is a rockband 3 fender mustang pro controller for the wii. Any platform is the same thing for midi input but since this is old hardware the wii is cheapest usually. Note intensity can be controlled though picking but it feels like 3-4 different volumes at
  6. Use the rear io panel input, not the front case input and get away from motherboard sound input as soon as you possibly can. Save us a small amount of money and get a dedicated device, there are lots of cheap and good options. You could hit up a pawn shop and get an m-audio box since they seem to be everywhere, pick up a focusrite sapphire 2by2 and if you only need one audio input then you can get a clone of a behringer UCG102 from ebay for like $15.
  7. Guitars are my thing. I am trying to get better at the synth guitar though
  8. It's a preset in guitar rig 5 where the delay/reverb of each note is pitch modulated, I recognize it a mile away. In metal and djent styles of music guitarists use shimmer effects which is ways of routing delay or reverb into pitch shifting. You will hear the same and similar sounds on this guys youtube demo: The original recording where this came from was on the song balerina 12/24 Vai took an eventide with separate TCE delays so you you would get a duplicated arpeggio. If you want guitar on your music and for it to sound good then there a
  9. Can I take the following piece of music Eric Lecarde: Iron-Blue Intention It is very flexible musically and I could write a breakdown to it, it's the track I could make sound best.
  10. Hi all, I came here after being away for a few years looking to get into some work as recording tracks and collaborating was incredibly fun for me. I searched through all the projects and it's difficult to tell which ones are able to be worked on or not as even active projects seem to have deadlines years ago but then this thread says they are open to new people, it's confusing and scared me off asking about a few of them. It would be great to compose a track or two or even do some session recording again.
  11. Oh man, those were the days! I used to be hunched over my 4 track recorder every month when guitar techniques and total guitar would release new backing track cds. So many old jams, those days were magic when you had to wing it at times and special stuff would happen.
  12. They're the same thing but the difference is evity. Digital equipment and vst software nearly always puts out a perfect processed result, time after time. Analogue equipment can be influenced by more variables of physics.. Analogue gear in the classic sense is imperfect in production and different units will share different qualities. Vacuum tubes are not all equal and wear out and have more sag. The power quality from the mains greatly affects tube drive. Mechanical components are not identical, hand wiring plays a part too. The audio environment is more evitable as a whole with analogu
  13. Haunted shores have some of the best metal sounds to my ears. of course ..i might be a bit ..uhh ..biased.
  14. There is a factor called instructions per clock (ipc). This is the amount of calculations that a processor thread can do in one individual clock. Imagine a processor called pentium 4. Pentium 4 was terrible so lets imaginably call (for demonstrations sake) the ipc of pentium 4 one instruction per clock. This means that P4 at 3.0 ghz can do 3,000,000,000 simple operations/movements. Lets take a nice ivy bridge processor (the newest intel architecture released last week). For demonstrations sake (and because I cant be bothered finding the actual ipc difference of p4 and IB) let's call IB at 1
  15. That's a good idea too. Perhaps you could even at some point learn a little yourself. The guitar is a useful thing to learn
