Creative flow seems to be gone, working on sound design for so long seems to have killed my ability to create complete tracks (or at least one's I'm satisfied with). Time for a break I reckon.

    I'm on a forced musical break, too, and looking forward to the fresh view that comes when its tome to rok again. I maybe plan putting more limitations onto myself then to try to "get things done at all". like having less possibilities to stray on the tableu.

Are Octatracks worth the money? Been thinking about getting one along with a portable laptop battery so I could use it when travelling.

    Totally worth the money in my case. Actually OT seems like hardware reincarnation of Octamed

    In any case, Elektrons builds awesome stuff
    Alternatively an old Ipad with Pattering and Groove Rider GR-16
    + much more options, cheaper
    - Haptics, Cloud, Apple

Forward Looping Tight Granular Samples + Modulated Tight Decay Time + Modulated Multi-Tap Delay, Feedback, Input Source + Modulated Formant Filter + Random Selection Reverb, Delay, LP Cutoff & Res + Vocoder = Bliss (So simples)

God damn sampling ain't easy. Listening to Bonobo's song Recurring made me realise just how much has to go into a complete track (and it's one of his old tracks to). All the tracks, layers, melodies, counter-melodies, being able to spin a sample, match different tempoed / different tuned samples, having access to recording equipment to record your own instruments (if you got them). And then being able to compose it all, mix and master it. Makes my head spin just thinking about. I...

    I tend to believe such mastery comes by talent+experience, and a whole lot of random and fortunate inspirations while messing around with the well-organized samples...which makes every piece unique btw...don't try to overthink it by thinking it is all rationally planned actions

As an Irishman, learning that the word 'craic', a word that we think of as part of our cultural identity and as if it originated from us, actually came from Scotland and England breaks my heart a little. Nothing is real, it's all lies!!!! The madness of life eh

Would an old Elektron Machinedrum be worth the purchase for making complete tracks or should I just save my cash for beer and tasty food?

Had only been in San Fransisco for 30 minutes and seen six people shooting up heroin on the street in broad daylight. What the fuck!!!! This is not what I expected a Californian city to be like

    Elba is an Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea’s Tuscan Archipelago National Park. It’s known for its beaches, and as Napoleon’s place of exile in 1814–15.

Left side headphone broke on my AKG k612s, only had them just over a year. Bullshit. Wanna move to monitors, but I don't have a space thats private/remote enough to mix using them. Gotta work with shitty $20 phones for now, ugh

    AKG used to make stuff that never breaks, but now they seem to only make flimsy crap. I really considered AKG last time i purchased headphones, but they felt like much more flimsy quality than the cheaper Beyerdynamics set i ended up with. I do not regret my purchase.

    Soldering is really not that hard, but it depends on where you need to solder. Usually the weak spots are where the cable connects with the headset or at the jack plug. It can be hard to make a transparent repair, but it shouldn't be hard to make it work again. Speakers rarely break, so it's not very likely they are busted.

    U can try to fix, yet agree with TheBellows, that normally they wont be able to be soldered properly, since the newer ones are built 2 break after a certain time. The cheapo Amazon is a Beast on the Bass & doesnt sound bad at all, just in case u need a Budget replace (less than 20$) The #Thomson is just a hidden Gem, if u can still find them somewhere...like 5 Buckz or something...juz grab & thank me laterz (:

Looking for an old .xrns file on here that contained delay line commands that copied the swing settings of an Akai MPC (not sure which model). Can anyone redirect me to the file? I can't seem to find it
