Re: Sherman Filterbank love?

Well, i've been away from the filterbank for a long time, which sometimes is very good for revisiting an instrument. I don't think i've had one with the upgrades (starting with the no input noise), and using this as the proverbial 'noise box' will prove to be very satisfactory, I think. I actually h...

Re: What is drone?

dictionaries report on actual usage, so i don't view them as the foundation, but the result. There are different uses and contexts of 'drone', and i think that the foundation is its usage in electronic music, which is what the conversation is about. What a fun topic. I'm late to the party, and this ...

Re: shelves instead of keyboards on kybd stand?

YES. That is the kind of thing i was looking for initially. Thank you. i just didn't know what to look for. i think that the combination of the front lip plus some rubber feet will prevent any sliding (i will probably just use for a single row of synths anyway, so the front lip should be sufficient...

Re: shelves instead of keyboards on kybd stand?

Hey Nelson, Here’s an ikea option. Comes in multiple sizes (~19, 29, 39 inches wide) and 2 colors white/gray. https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/komplement-shoe-shelf-white-80257261/ It has a lip on the front to keep synths from sliding off the front when you angle them. It’s made of sturdy metal so is s...

Re: shelves instead of keyboards on kybd stand?

Just don't rely on the adhesive to hold up against a heavy synth unit with the shelf tilted at a steep angle. Might need to use metal screws into the shelf wood for that-drill a pilot hole first before inserting and tightening a long screw partway down. Plastic tubing over the screw to keep it from...

Re: Capturing inspiration

Another thought though: if you have an idea and you forget it, it probably wasn't that amazing. If you have an idea and you can't get to the studio for a week and you still remember it, it's probably worth pursuing. some big presuppositions here fer instance i will not get into it with YOU. sorry.

shelves instead of keyboards on kybd stand?

seems like this should be an easy thing to find, but i have had no luck. maybe a problem with the lingo/search.... i think that i'm going to have a 3 tier keyboard stand with only 1 tier filled with a keyboard. But it would be very convenient to fill the space with various smaller items (desktop syn...

Re: What is it about the musical genre "noise" that you find appealing?

TBH, one thing I really dislike in the noise-GENRE is overcompression. The 0.1bit dynamics in most noise releases is really boring. Metzbow et. al. made the lack of dynamics work in the 90's to 00's, in a surprising way, but these days IMHO, having everything FULL BLAST is a cliche. It can suite so...

I find 99% of the music made with synthesizers/modular gear boring as fuck, but I don't go into a thread called "What do you find appealing about techno/ambient/EDM etc..." and talk about why I think it's boring garbage.

Re: What is it about the musical genre "noise" that you find appealing?

Anyway, getting this discussion back to noise, are any of you familiar with Himukalt? I love how dynamic her work is. The subdued moments make the bursts of intensity stand out in a way that I love. The vocal processing is also particularly interesting and central to her aesthetic. Probably my favo...

i don't listen to enough music these days. i think i'll spend a little time now and listen a bit, starting with Himukalt above (had time to listen to a couple of minutes earlier, and very much liked)

Re: What is it about the musical genre "noise" that you find appealing?

I love noise and texture and intensity, but only used alongside / in relation to more traditional music. It can definitely add to a track in terms of sound design but if the track is *nothing but* seemingly unstructured noise? Nah. Not for me. It needs to have some sort of relatively easily percept...

Connecting recognition to success or validity seems pretty empty to me.
of course it is.

He is trolling. It's easy to use that as a criticism in the place of a real argument, but in this case I think that it is obviously true.

Re: What is it about the musical genre "noise" that you find appealing?

I think if it has real value it should be robust enough to deal with a couple of dismissive comments. Outside of the Fifties and Sixties avant-garde, how many “noise artists” have ever achieved recognition outside of a tiny audience of cassette music collectors? It all seems very old fashioned and ...
