Why not, I have no idea either, it would be very fun playing music with other people, even if they are scattered all over the world!

Also what's a bassoon? Never heard of one of those before.

Thats really cool! What program are you thinking of using for the producing>

Did you enjoy learning the piano at such a young age?

Ooooo, that sounds like a pretty good program. Does it have a trail you could perhaps try out/ does anyone else know of any good programs Droomph could use? Preferably free by the looks of things.

Also good you enjoy music at such a young age, I didn't start until I was like 15 or 16 :S

Haha, same here. Alllll had to learn the recorder. I think the coolest thing I managed to play on that was the harry potter theme song lol.

Pretty much yeah. I can still play it. But I barely remember any chords, and know no scales. So I don't consider myself a pianist. Two years ago my band had appointed me keyboardist for a short while and I hated it. I would play the most basic stuff >> Now I'm back on guitar. :D

Oh you should definitely re-learn it. Pianos sound amazinggggg, especially played well, and you can do so much with them;

Everyone had to learn because...because... I don't even know why.

Cuuuuuuzzz....I just wasn't as comfortable with it. And especially playing in front of people, I had no confidence in my piano abilities. I wish I could've busted out like a boss, cause it's definitely true that pianos/keyboards can sound amazing if they're played correctly.

I'm still with the same band, sort of. Our bassist has become very busy with life and probably considers himself out of our band by now. It sort of sucks, we don't want to add in someone else because it loses the novelty that it's our high school band, just a few friends that got together to play music. The role of bass playing is being taken up by the singer right now, who also plays guitar, so it's not too bad of a transition. Who knows, I might be able to get some bass time. :3

We play alternative rock. We used to cover artists like Muse, Dire Straits, Red Hot Chili Peppers. Right now we're working on another RHCP cover, and a Kings of Leon song.

Also I know the feeling, sometimes I dont like playing infront of people, I use to hate it but I dont care as much anymore, I usually play at work to try and get people to come into the shop >.<.
The violin is a majestic instrument, do you play it in a band or just lone wolf it??
Which ones is the string bass again?

@Cacturne
Do you still play in the school band? And you must be pretty good now after 5 years! Any examples of yourself playing youd like to share?

I started playing violin when I was around 7, I think. Been at for about 6 years but this year I had to stop actively playing it so I could concentrate on my clarinet and string bass. As for why I picked the violin, my parents offered me a choice between the violin or the piano. In all respects, should've picked the piano because I now absolutely fail in bass clef. :P

Gotta love my clarinet though. It's fun to play on for me and I get to join a lot more ensembles to play stuff like marches and overtures.

We got together in late 2008 I think? We didn't really start taking it seriously until about a year later. And hah, I don't think the bassist is going to come back to be honest. I love him, but he'd started to piss me off and I'm not surprised he's gone. His attitude towards our band one year ago, when we were finally recording our first originals, was awful. He was never around and would never make time for the band. Any free time he had probably went to his girlfriend. He still hasn't recorded his bass lines for our songs. I'd love to have you guys listen, but they're simply incomplete. Bass is so important.

We did do gigs back in high school. We played a few local venues in our city, and managed to land a gig at a rather well-known venue, where some of my favourites have played, including The Mars Volta and In Flames.

The now-pseudo-bassist of the band is wondering if he should go ahead and lay down our ex-bassist's tabs to complete our songs. As much as I want them done, I don't want to steal that away from our old bassist. He did put effort into writing for the songs and it'd just feel wrong if somebody else recorded them.

We'll probably start working on some more originals soon, which will definitely be recorded over the summer. Once those are done I'll have y'all listen.

Thats pretty cool that youve been with the same band for 4 years, do you make much money from it? Or any money at all :S
He may have worked on the bass lines but if hes not willing to put them down and they are for the band you shouldnt feel bad about using them. I think the new bassist should just put down the bassline if its been tabbed tbh.
And that'd be really cool if you showed us some of your songs xD.

I'm actually in my school's ensemble, jazz band, a honors ensemble outside of school, and the occasional festival ensemble when that time of the year rolls around. And marching band. Marching band's awesome.

Week of crash course in marching, and bam, we're off to our first game. Our shows are usually fun and changes from year to year. I think this year, the marching band at my school's going to do something called 'The Groove', so that'll be interesting to find out about.

We usually play to a packed house in our auditorium so... I guess a lot of people? :0

Yes, but I now I play just the bass and the guitar because I kinda forgot how to play the flute; I only started with it merely due to it being a requirement in my first year of high school MAPE (Music, Arts, and Physical Education) class. Also, yes, the bass is my main, though I'm still not that good at it; it's also my favorite because I simply love the low sound it produces. <3
All right, thanks for being considerate. :3

What kind of bass do you play? And how long have you been playing the bass? Bass' do have a nice low pounding sound.
Naww well if you can still play the Flute even a little it still counts!
No probs! Its just that in the future I want to try and maybe get some full band covers going when we get some drummers, etc. xD

An electric, four-stringed one. :3 Um, I bought it less than two years ago, but the total time I've played with it doesn't even add up to a year 'cause I kinda get lazy and stuff, plus the songs I want to cover are usually fast-paced, which is hard for me. xD

The beauty of what I want to do is that you can play it by yourself and just record yourself and post it and I can edit all the instruments into one video and hopefully sync them all up! xD /is smart.

Nothing in particular, really; but since I want to learn and be skilled with the bass lines of my favorite K-ON! songs, I'd say I play peppy anime music in a beginner's fashion. Ehehe. Oh, you mean the cello?

Thats pretty cool that youve been with the same band for 4 years, do you make much money from it? Or any money at all :S
He may have worked on the bass lines but if hes not willing to put them down and they are for the band you shouldnt feel bad about using them. I think the new bassist should just put down the bassline if its been tabbed tbh.
And that'd be really cool if you showed us some of your songs xD.

Meh, we'll see what happens. No, we never made money with this stuff. We just played shows to play them. Most of us were very preoccupied with school at the time, and now we're all ways away from each other for the majority of the year. I don't see myself making any money with this band to be honest, that'd only be later on in life when I've started playing with different people.

I think I'm mostly self-taught on the string bass, though I do need to ask where my fingers go for certain places in 3rd position and the space between my fingers for them. Wish I could actually haul the school bass at home so I can practice, but it's too big for me to take on the bus, and a bit too fragile for me to be carrying it around the school too. :S Darned huge things.

I don't know myself, because I usually have to have my director help me with the tuning. Actually, I don't know if we have one too... I guess a normal tuner would work okay with it if you're using the electric bass and the line for it... Might have to try it out someday. :0

Ok I'll try..
Here in Australia there are 8 grades of music, grade 1 being the easiest, grade 8 being the hardest (there's harder stuff to do after grade 8 but I don't understand it yet)
Grades 1-4 are the preliminary grades
Grades 5-8 are the higher grades.
So Grade 4 is considered a 'middle' grade..
Basically it sets a standard for where one is at with their music.
Sorry if I haven't explained it very well, this is my first exam.

I'll try to do the actual record on a day I don't feel so sick so my breathing won't sound so wonky like it does in this test run XD

That chorus is really fast. I'm trying to learn the rhythm of it right now, then basically I'll have the whole song down rhythm wise.


That is fantastic Kurui! I am so happy you agreed to help us with this project. Now I need to learn the song as well as you so I don't ruin your amazing attempt!

Renyui!

I have like a bass drum mic, a toms mic, and a snare drum mic. I might be investing in more later though, I really wanna get a fuller tone.

And yeah, I will drum for the track! It sounds pretty sweet, I'll give you that ^-^

Instruments- I play clarinet, piano, and am working on saxophone.
Collaborate- No thanx.

At my school, people tend to ignore the clarinets, and we aren't allowed in Jazz Band, which is the main way to get noticed in band. So, my friends and I have a thing about clarinet ignoring-
DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE AWESOMENESS!!!
It's, like, our clarinet motto. We (or at least I) wrote it on our clarinet cases.

Oh thats just stupid, why arent clarinets allowed? I don't think thats very fair at all! You should protest about it.

Zayphora: Whatttt? At my old school, clarinets were the shiz. I mean, sure the trumpets ruled the band, but everyone liked the clarinets better. Are you working on sax to be in jazz or something?

CWP: Clarinets aren't allowed in most high school jazz bands because they're not traditionally jazz instruments.

I decided I'm posting my UTAU stuff in here too. Its technically music making. Just with voices as instruments instead of digital instruments. C:

I have only 3 UTAU of my voice, but I don't use them frequently. I rather use my friends. Unfortunately not all of them have good mics or some reason their files get corrupted meaning I have to just use like 10 of their syllables to makeshift words. Either way it is FUN!

~~**~~

I didn't make all of these USTs, but I did extensively edit them, some to the point that they might as well be mine XD;;.

Hana Bob & Hana Futashi

Voiced by my brothers, they usually duet songs and are kind of like boyband superstars in that regard~. Futashi's voice is more suited for pop songs with higher pitches and fancy pantsy stuff. He typically sings lead in songs. Bob has a more nasally voice, and much deeper and gravelly. He is suited better for some rocking songs when he solos, but he makes great back up to his brother.

Their recordings are pretty high quality as they use my mic.

Hana Bob sings 'Yuragi': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34025785

Hana Futashi sings 'Clingy Boy': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34068657

Both duet on the pop hit 'Loveless'. Futashi on lead with Bob on back up. This UST was edited by Mr. Dark. I had no participation in making this one:
http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34026119


Ichijo Tetsunori

His voice bank only has like 20 syllables because it corrupted on my UTAU along with a lot of other ones >_< and he was an unfortunate victim. He is voiced by my husbando, Kageroza-kun. And I can't seem to get Kageroza-kun to do a re-record. His voice is still sexy even with the horrible mic quality and poor bank. I make him sing all kinds of stuf, but my favourite thing to do is to make him duet with Kitty-chan's UTAU as their voices are eargasm together. XD Not that he can't make me eargasm all by himself =//=. Also he sounds more authentic Japanese because well, duh.

A blend of different songs by him. Just me fooling around with bends and all that with him: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33754092

Tetsunori singing the chorus to 'Chou', but I was having trouble making it o.o: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33753037

If you knew my husband, you'd know that he has a number of phrases he most uses XD especially online where he is even more withdrawn than irl. "I see" (kinda like, oh really? that type of I see) is one of those phrases. So I took one of my fav choruses from one of my fav songs and make him "Sou ka" the entire thing. But I otoed it crappy and the K didnt come out right.....but yeah, xD He didn't talk to me for like a day after >_>.......:
http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33747004

And this was the epic "AHHHH!" beginning to Cendrillon, because Ilove his Ah's and I wanted to make him sing the girly Ah part XD: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33746958
My pitch bends are a little bad, sorry. >_>;;


Matsuki Hiro

This is my favourite UTAU to work with. :D I love this voice so much but some of their bank was also corrupted >_>;;........Not many though so they mostly have a full bank. It was voiced by Emozomi-chan (female), but the UTAU's real gender remains a mystery. Still I love this voice. It gives me heartwarming tingles when I hear Hiro sing. XD I would marry his/her voice if that's possible. Before anyone asks, NO her voice was not gender bent. She has that deep of voice naturally.

Hiro badazzedly singing 'Funeral Nocturnal Luminescence': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33758134

Hiro showing a softer side of singing 'Beast Soul'. http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33757241

It's time to du-du-duel. XD I found this ust and edited it slightly to fit. Hiro showing Duel Monster spirit singing 'Kawaita Sakebi': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33756911

Shinogati Reina

Our resident Neko-UTAU! She's a gentle cat girl with a high pitched, small voice to match. She also apparently can't say Japanese "r's" XD But we love you Kitty-chan! She is voiced by Kitty-chan (Christina). Her mic quality was one of the more horrible, but her bank is completely uncorrupted~ YAY. Her voice is the perfect pair to Tetsunori's. I'm making them do a few duets with custom harmonies~ >//<

Reina sings 'Aozora'. I did not make the UST, just edited: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33756908

Vexy

Newcomer, whos bank was one of the most corrupted ever, although not as much as Tetsunori's or Dahlia's. However, his syllables can match most songs actual words, as you'll hear. :D He's voiced by dear old Vexen. And his voice is as sexy as evar. He's probably my second favourite UTAU to work with, beaten only by Hiro.

Here he is singing 'Sakurane' which most of our UTAU have sang because we had a contest. He won with his version, almost full kill :D: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33908169
Note: This song was not mixed. Since we did it just for contest purposes, but I'll have a mixed version soon.

And this is a short sample of 'Blue Bird'. I made the UST myself. I also tried mixing.: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33922366

And this is a short sample of my fav song by him. 'If You're Not Here' (I think is the title). I did not make the UST but I edited heavy. : http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33967412
Note: Thank you, Kitty-chan for nominating this song for him to sing!
The harmonies are sex in my ears. Vexy can REALLY sing. Really.......

Dahlia

The worst victim of the corruption. Poor Dahlia barely has any syllables, but he wanted so bad to participate in the contest so I edited a portion of the song full of his very few syllable bank ^^;;; He has a full song coming out that has syllables more to what ones didn't corrupt. Also, no resamplers work on him. I'm not sure what the problem is...... Dahlia is voiced by Marly. Sadly, he doesn't have many fans. I hope his full song helps that change because he sounds so beautiful singing it.

Marly sings a sample of 'Sakurane': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33957878

ZuZu

One of my UTAU. I made her more attuned for english/clear engrish. She has a very distinct voice to match her character. As of right now she can sing in Japanese, Engrish, and a good bit English.

Zuzu's Engrish 'Firework' cover (Yes, the Katy Perry song). Made by Nuku and Mr. Dark: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34024827

PONPONPON!!!!: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34024904

A request cover. I don't know where they found the ust......I think the song is called 'Stella Marine': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33754228


Manai Yokoshima

Our most popular UTAU~ This is Manai Yokoshima. He is voiced by Mr. Dark who is the guy who got us all into UTAU to begin with. He was our first ever UTAU in Sumitsuki. His voice is very unique ^^;;; but very full of emotion somehow. People have stated that they could be "moved to tears" in the emotional songs he sings, which is what he prefers. I think he sounds similar to a Slig from Oddworld XD (but I love you Mr D).

This is my most proud work. I studied many UST and the song to make this. There was a very vital point where we thought Mr. D has committed suicide and this is the very song I wanted him to sing. I slaved on the UST for some days. So yeah this is the pride of my UTAU work on this one song right here. 'Uninstall'.: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34026203

His first song really ever released, 'Hidoor Utopia' and with it he scored the heart of Jei-chan XD Who is now his girlfriend: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34026041

There are many more UTAU >_>......but I save them for a nother post. So many ;___;. We are also mostly males (Girls hate me I swear XD ). But next you'll meet more of the UTAU cast. I'm going to leave you with some duets, etc.

DUETS

Vexy and Dahlia get their groove on in the small intro of 'Insanity': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33954420

Reina and Tetsunori are 'Hurting for a very Hurtful Pain' in this WIP duet: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33750930

And now Reina and Tetsunori are begging for your love in this small harmonies test~: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33750004

Yaoi lovers rejoice. Tetsunori and Yokoshima make your heartrate rise in their sinful lust-driven song 'Magnet': http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=33754166
Mr. D you make me jealous being all yaoi with my husbando T_T

And that is it for my UTAU tour! Part 1 anyway. You'll meet Jei-chan and the Futashi/Bob Twin's mother and more on the next round.

Oh~!!!

UTAU is a program much like a music making program, where you place notes and lengths and edit them to make tunes/music. Instead of instruments, you use voices.

I get my husbando/friends/family to make banks of syllables, and that program uses my taking syllables and plaving them down, and renders them into their voice singing said syllable.

So it is like creating a digital....singer? I guess.

Dear more experienced musicians/mixers,

I love critique on my stuff owo. Please give a listen and tell me how to make it better. Especially on the latest piece I posted a few posts back(CLICK). (http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34098844) I would be so happy XD I want to become good, or at least decent!

I use Adobe Audition for trying to mix/line up vocal right and everything. I usually compress vocal first, line it up to the music correctly, then add the delay/any effects, etc., then I use the mixerboard for the EQ and things before mastering it and adding mastering reverbs.

Emmm, the metallic twangs in the more recent song are from the UTAU program itself because of the poor mic quality that generates noise. I tried my best to get him to work on resamplers, but they were crashing the UTAU program, so I had to use the default which leaves the noises in there much. I normally use bkh resamplers, but even that was generating noise more than usual, I think because of the notes in the song (It works better on some songs than others, and I think it was conflicting with the flags <_< somehow ). TIPS doesn't work with Kageroza-kun's voice unfortunately >_<.......

Well yesh, I'm a musician XD. And since this is a musician's club. And you don't have to like a certain thing to crit it. I thought mixing was all the same as far as vocals go? Maybe I'm wrong, but I tend to take the same approach for mixing whether it's my voice or one of my friend's through UTAU program.

His voice is smexy, synthesized or no! With VCV you can get an even more natural sound, and you can barely tell it isn't human just singing at all. I don't have any VCV to work with though. Nobody my team has ever made one. ;o;

I already have before so I'm not nervous but this is the first time working with my all time favourite band on a full album. I had only recorded back vocals of one song on an album, but not for the actual band.

But a warn, this song I did operatic on is explicit lyric (violence & some language). For that reason i will warn and spoiler and big letters.


aX6hCARARJU


Horrorcore is a mix of metal hip hop rap with horror and gothic element. It is very dark, subtly beautiful music on the macabre. It is a very underground style, and one of my favourites, being I am gothic.

You can hear the first track I'm singing on instrument here:

Droomph it doesnt have to be jazz if you don't know it. You've taken the reigns of this collab so you can make it whatever genre but I suggest one that'll let everyone play it! Woooo. I'm excited to see how this one works out!
You should join that Collab Contro, Im sure youll enjoy it anyways xD.

I think before we start doing original songs that we should get some more collab covers done so everyone gets use to the idea of working together and recording parts for each other the interwebzz. We will definitely get there eventually!

Originals > covers, just because they're easier to do. Well IMO, singing wise.

And here's another song from me that everyone will probably ignore. It is Inaba Kurue's official unveiling song. I might release her soon once I fix up some stuff. owo Then anyone can make her sing whatever.

Nope. I'm pretty new to UTAU although I'm getting more used to it. I took a screenie of my workspace......but you can see, I'm no good at doing fancy pitch bends, so it looks really boring and straight forward XD

http://i45.tinypic.com/2ujpmbr.png
Me converting a VSQ segment into UST and adding bends, vibrato, and stuff. I dunno who the original file belongs to but it just had the notes thrown down and was pretty choppy and unusable. I was also making custom harmonies to it xD;; (so bored).

I'm making this custom fit to Kurue's bank. I like giving her lots of extra vibrato although this part was just general vibrato but I think I'm going to crunch the lengths of it to make it shorter but more wave-y.

Right now it sounds like (the part highlighted in pink): http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34110291

That being said, does any MALE here want to lend their voice to me? I want to make a duet to something and I want a fresh new male voice to duet with. D: You don't have to sing. You just have to sing one note for around 100-ish syllables which takes maybe 5 minutes of your time. I'll do the rest of the work. I just need it in one file. I promiseeeee.

Found an UTAU recording program called Oremo. Tried it out, resampler FREESAMP now works great. I'll need to re-record her 'ah' though, and do some noise removal in syllables but you can already tell just using that program + new resampler and she is already like %80 less robotic twangy~

http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34111957

^ Sample.

I found out that some of my robot-ness was because I record my samples so short. So now I am making them about .5-1 seconds longer. I sound much more natural now you can tell~

Also sorry I didn't mix it so its kinda muffledy but you can still tell the smoothness is super improved.

I love that song if its Dear Agony from Breaking Benjamin which I think it sounds like. Very nice! Next time when you're recording try putting the mic right in front of the amp if possible. It'd make it louder and possible clear and make the background sounds quieter!

New discussion point everyone:

Who influenced you the most into playing music?

I would have to say my father and bestfriend pushed me into music. My father plays guitar and was always trying to get me to play and my mate is a really good guitarist and wanted someone else to play with so got me into it as well (Though ironically we rarely play together.) Also listening to Buckethead made me want to play guitar as well, hes a beast!

Who influenced you the most into playing music?
Matt Bellamy. After watching him play Plug In Baby... Just wow. He was my idol; I wanted to be exactly like him. So I borrowed my friend's old guitar and started to play it, and obviously I couldn't play anything remotely good at the time, but it was so much fun to play around with it. So later I bought my first guitar and started learning some basic tunes and then started to get lessons too, with my guitar teacher being the most incredible teacher you could imagine. Honestly I don't think I'd have played this long without his encouragement and guidance; he really made the whole thing feel worth-while and achievable. Ironically I didn't learn Plug In Baby till like a year after first playing guitar though x]

So yeah, a mixture of Matt Bellamy (from Muse) and my guitar teacher c:

I always loved music, so naturally I always wanted to learn how to specific songs. However, specific artists inspire me in certain aspects. Alexi Lahio inspires me to play quicker, even though I have issues with my fingers sometimes. Benjamin Burnely inspires me with a light picking yet heavy style, while their bassist Mark inspires me with his unique smooth style.

Nowadays though, I just play for fun. I'll sometimes go to a friend's house and we'll do some jamming, but nothing major. I wouldn't say I'm that good, but I'm ok if I'm not totally out of practice. I'll hopefully... record something soon-ish :O

That is still really cool, where did he learn to do it? What kind of wood are you using for the body and the neck, as you know different woods hold different tones and sounds.
Any ideas on what pickups and pots your going to use? This is such a cool thing youre doing!

I wonder if anyone else in the club has tried something like this before, or at least helped on a project like this before.

@CarefulWetPaint (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=267451), at the moment we're using about the same kind of wood for both the neck and the body.
However, we haven't worked on it for three days already mainly due to some issues.
I was thinking of showing off some of the gear that I have later, because I was thinking of what you fellows think of them. Oh and by gear I mean guitar, amps, and bass.

How would some of you people feel about remixing a track and then playing the parts on your favourite instrument? Like Synth with a Clarinet or something insane like that? Would anyone be interested in doing something like this?

EDIT
I didnt even notice that guitar picture there Korso! Thats an ibanez yes? Do you have the model/ know what the model is. Is it in as good as condition as it looks in the picture? Thats definitely a massive steal for $75 dollars! So jealous atm!

Are you willing to collaborate with other members: Possibly

I've listed Sax first since it's the first instrument I learnt to play properly and I have my grade 8 exam on Wednesday, so it's something of a main instrument. Currently I'm really committing myself to learning jazz and pop piano.

I've really gotten into studio recording as of recent too. Low budget equipment FTW!*

Low budget :| Thats more then my guitars :'(. Im sure you can some nice crisp recordings out of that, especially for a home studio thats awesome! You should post some of the work you do for us to listen to :). Maybe some jazz work on your Sax? That'd be pretty cool. Grade 8 means youre pretty good doesnt it?

Contro I think it'd be much easier for you to learn the guitar better but if you want a challenge definitely go for vocals. In my mind being able to sing gives you a much better chance of getting places, especially if you can play 4 chords on the acoustic while singing (lol).

I'm actually in the middle of recording a cover of Norwegian Wood by The Beatles. As soon as I've finished a rough mix I'd be happy for you guys to give it a listen and tell me what you think :). I may well record some jazz too, possibly something like Yardbird Suite by Charlie Parker.

My guitars (Fender Strat and Crafter Acoustic) cost around £820 altogether but they produce a great sound, especially the acoustic. What guitars do you have? :)

And yeah, did my grade 8 today. My technicality and tone are pretty good, but I sometimes trip up on slower, more expressive pieces because the breathing patterns required are extremely difficult (at grade 8 standard). And I'm a non-smoker, aha.

Aww thanks :3

FL Studio (the full version with all the little do-dads) is $299. There are lesser versions as well, however, I'd totally recommend a program called "Reaper". (http://www.reaper.fm/)

It is essentially free. You download it as a trial, but it has all the features, and only gives you a short prompt when you open it to buy the program. And when you've decided you want to buy the program... it's only $50.

It doesn't really come with many stock synth plugins, but you can download plenty for free online (PM me if you want to know of any). I use Reaper a lot for it's audio plugins and stuff. ;)

If you are just recording guitar or whatever, Reaper is the way to go. I know of a few professionals that use Reaper just to record keyboards/guitars/etc. into. :15:

When I play, my instructor says that I've to have a piece of my arm on the bridge.
But now, I'm struggling like my body just doesn't know how to play even though I do know how to. Like, when I play a certain string. I pick it, but I find it troubling to pick it.

July 12th, 2012, 06:12 PM
I've never had any lessons, I'm self taught and all I can tell you what helped me. I messed around with different hand positions until I found the the most comfortable and at the same time do all the techniques. I find the bridge pickup's have the best sound for me for my genre of playing, but sometimes use the neck bridge. Note, my guitar has 2 hummbuckers. But guitar picking is all in the wrist, never move your arm around at all. For practice on picking grab a pick and swing your wrist back and forth as if you were picking the guitar. Do not have your arm at a 90 degree angle either, try maybe a 45 degree angle. Hope I helped.

This only applies with the acoustic, since there isn't a strap supporting my hand.
Also, I have a little issue with my picking. It sorta happens when I'm going a little fast and accidentally miss a note or two, this is a little issue as I sometimes hit the note above or below as well.

^ Thanks, I'll try and take your answer and see what I can get out of it.

Below, actually it sometimes sound like it doesn't sound like it has the full value of the tone. It sounds like a very soft sound even though I'm picking lightly.

That's just being a new-ish guitar player. Keep at it, eventually your brain will make the appropriate neural connections, eye-hand-coordination, etc., etc.... it comes with practice ;)

ShinyUmbreon189
July 12th, 2012, 06:42 PM
I know it's hard but look into alternate and economy picking it will definitely help your picking, trust me. On the acoustic it's suppose to sound soft when you pick lightly, or your palm muting and don't realize it. It takes awhile to get used to picking you'll eventually get used to the muscle memory and the ey-hand coordination.

You got a point on me being a beginner, though it takes me a long time to learn a specific instrument even though I've almost been playing for a year or so. But, it's my brain that's the problem. Sometimes I forget things even though I worked my butt of the day before doing it.

I can play chord progressions cleanly and intermediate lead playing, but I'm no Eric Clapton.

But yeah, as Aeroplane says, keep working on it and soon you'll be able to do it without even thinking about it.

And CarefulWetPaint, my non-smoker comment was just to exaggerate the difficulty and concentration of the breathing patterns required for slower grade 8 standard pieces. I think it's because I'm used to playing upbeat improvised jazz.

How did you feel before, during and after the experienceIn 2010 I played with my old band at a venue which had 100ish people attend overall, which isn't bad considering the capacity was about 300 I think. It was a battle of the bands competition. It was a good first gig. Our first and last song sounded great, the middle three not so much, but a reasonable effort. Was a great experience.

Also, myself and a classical guitarist once got picked to perform a concert separately. We were representing our college and performing in front of members of the music club for that area. That was pretty scary. I played well, but the classical guitarist completely outdid me. I was completely out of his league. I think he studies at the Royal College of Music in London now. He was a phenomenal player.

I'm back now (although I probably won't be as active.....I'm still kinda in the blah aftermath stage), and with more UTAU music to burn your ears since I have a new person to work with. :B

So right before husbando died I met a new guy via Kitty-chan who I now work for a little on some things. But i got him to sit and try to make an UTAU, and >_>;; he can't say Japanese well and has this horribly thick brit accent.........But yesh indeed, he made a few syllables for me to work with so that's what I've been doing to escape the fountain tears.

Yesterday i sat down with the notion in mind to make my very first from complete SCRATCH UST. Yes, from SCRATCH. So i pumped myself full of caffeine and set to work and it paid off! I have the complete first verse and chorus of a song now.

And soooo I introduce to you Toad UTAU (voiced by Toad ofc) singing 'My heart Will Go On' (yes......yes, i went there XD ).

I also made a few more songs but on some of them I wasn't using proper flags (I'm a fail~) so it sounds strange.

Paranoid Doll Short Toad Cover (with a music video because I'm so nice <3 ) :

tmEYtXhQJAE

Yeah, trying to get him to say Japanese R's did not work......neither do the Tsu's. He gave me anything from "Tu" to "Wwwwrrruuu" for R sounds. Like I told him to combine D and L and he gives me T and Wr........because that makes TOTAL SENSE! And Tsu is obviously "Shoe". <_< Yep.

And this one is a WIP and will be his first full song release. :B

I work with a Korean rap/hip-hop artist now that I sing songs for, but other than that no. My recording programs have been giving me so much troubles. T_T

You can hear a small WIP sample of our first song here: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34151599

Playing with chorus harmonies and main melodies. It is a rap/rnb Kpop style. Title will be "Come Alive".

UTAU songs take longer/harder to make than me singing. XD;; But it depends on the quality of the available UST (that includes the notes data that the UTAU voice will sing) and whoever bank I work with on the song. Every UST is usually shipped ready to go for most UTAU voices, but Toad has a limited bank, meaning for many of his syllables I have to heavy edit the existing UST or make from complete scratch (as in that english one). He has roughly half of what a normal sized bank has.

An example from my Toad edits is that he doesn't have a "Ha" syllable, mostly because of his superly extreme accent which makes him saying "Ha" very hard to hear the H, so I had him record himself going "hhhh" and tack that on to the "a2" file, with "to" for the T. Here's a sample file of Toad singing the smoothest part of the song that I could get. I plan to rework much of that first portion to make it smoother. Mind you this is CV, not VCV so it will sound less realistic than VCV UTAU. But it's DANG close, I'll tell you that, because I'm slaving over pitch bends and envelops (the most fun part).

http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34161825

The real syllables you're hearing here are. "a2, n, du, su, be (he does not have a pe sound, it corrupts), se, su, bi, tu, wi, n, a2, su, yu, ha, vu, ka, mu, tu, sho, yu, go, a2, n" every syllable applied to the timeline and then edited with flags (which changes everything from gravel to breathiness to clarity), envelops, attack, volume, vibrato, pitch bending, etc. to make it smooth transition. You also must oto the file to fit some UST which tells the program how to render the note, where the consonant and vowel should start, and which part of the file to hold out/stretch. This becomes a problem for Toad's bank, which is limited so sometimes I will edit the UST piece by piece with different oto settings in order to give him clearer consonants or a more definite vowel sound.

I've put in around 7-ish hours on that from scratch UST. To modify a pre-existing one, I usually put in between 1-2 hours. That's including mixing.

CarefulWetPaint

Well, I've finally managed to upload a mix to Soundcloud, although it's a pretty basic one. Essentially I just recorded my acoustic guitar and vocals and spent an hour or two tying together the loose ends (I might add more instrumentation at some point). If anyone wants to have a listen there's a link to my Soundcloud account in my sig. It's a cover of a song called Junk from Paul McCartney's debut album. If you guys could tell me what you think of it that'd be great :). Advice and/or critique is welcomed.

Welcome to the club Slayr!

For collaboration its more you record your part then upload it and someone puts it all together xD, so its not that big of a deal if your net isnt THAT great, so dont let that stop you! How long have you been playing?

Kanto! Bro, you have a very pleasant voice, I really liked that cover and I personally think it was fantastic but I dont know what the original sounds like so I cant really compare it to anything. It does sound fantastic though! You should definitely get some members together and do some more songs with them (us).

Kurui that was definitely cool sounding, is this game just going to have an epic OST or what!? I think yessss!

No, that was our first one. It's going to have video to it when we get the video to render properly, and with hopefully the main character's voice acting also in there.

But I did sing a little verse of a song I like, but I can't find the english instrumental of it so singing the chorus would be werid......but I sang the verse <3

A barren lonesome place stripped of all hope, faith, and belief
I stumble on for I alone can bring relief to those that cry out
With the weight of the world now on my shoulders, I feel weak
But with a hand from you I'll never know defeat

In your arms I feel warm and I know then that you'll always be the one that's there for me
And so I dream once more
Of that one place we both knew when happiness was just one step away

An extended piece testing even more of Eve Maiden's voices. I'm almost done processing her complete batch that I've gotten so far. =_=;; It's taking ages.

I think she has some 40 odd sound files just for her battle <_<;;......not even counting the normal "ouch" "hya" stuff.

This is horribly majour spoilers for this game by the way. I have no idea why we're showing this stuff first -_-;;; But it was Toad's decision. More spoilers below to those who are interested in this battle sequence.

Eve Maiden is the last boss of the game. o.o And she is/was also the main character's lover/girlfriend. The game has some pretty delicate topics in it, from kids and teens slaughtering other kids and teens to lust and rape, to betrayal/backstabbing those closest to them to everything. These kids have to grow up way too fast and take on the responsibilities of life and death situations while trying to find who they are and lead normal lives, etc.

But basically, you play as a group of very young teens/kids who are experimented on to be used as weapons against other also genetically enhanced children. The main character Mortimer (Mortie) begins to display his powers (he has the power to absorb material to create virtually anything he wants on a whim so he is called 'Shaper' and that is why the game is called 'Anything' I think) and his girlfriend at the time starts to regard him as a monster as she is an emotionally unstable girl who hates war/conflict, and she even tries to get him captured as he flees and joins with SEMCORE, the group of children who have powers in his division. Late in the game, Christina (the girlfriend) finds out that she is also modified and has the power to destroy (basically the opposite of Mortie, but her powers are very unstable and spotty - she is basically one of the "corrupt" experiments) as Eve Maiden (which is extremely ironic given her introverted yet kind personality, and in the end makes her a very likeable character whereas in the beginning she will probably be found annoying or hated due to her actions and outlooks - but here you can really find out how she ticks and it gives her a very sense of realism).

After reluctantly joining she begins to wear down more and more as they have to use their abilities for more horrific things until she goes berserk and becomes this last boss, using her emotional explosion to try to erase all of existence itself, that raw emotion and self-loathing unlocking her full potential as Eve Maiden (you can hear her actively switch between anger, sadness/grief, self-hatred, guilt, and complete insanity in the battle). In the last battle you solo as Mortie and you have to actively absorb things to fill in gaps where she is destroying WHILE taking down her HP and avoiding her attacks. I'm pretty sure Toad has more things in store for it too.

*more spoilers*

And by the way the main character is totally a player. He has 2 characters pregnant by the end of the game. Yeah. XDDD;; Too bad he *majour spoiler here again stop reading if you don't want another spoil*

Kanto I think theres a few members that would probably be interested in doing something with you if you approached them, if they have collaborator in their name just vm them and see if they are interested, I've love to see groups getting together and doing stuff that they share with the club <3

Kurui you really keep yourself busy don't you! You're always doing so many things that are musically related and you do them so well! You are definitely incredible :)
Do you do much of the music for that game? I swear you must do it all.

I direct the music for that game the music is from. Because of the age of the music dating 3-4 years back (this is a game I work on and off on for art while helping others with their games so it will not be released for years probably), we had no mixing skill, and the files were lost. So the mixing is terrible (it was never mixed). Because of that the entire OST is getting a small re-do keeping that same score, but with new VSTs and mixing/mastering. I remastered Kneel and Perish specifically for the test. It will still be recomposed though.

I did not hand create the music because I have little experience in FL Studio. What I did was sit with the guy making the musical sketch and direct the flow of the song itself. While letting him have creative freedom and my guidance for the OST. The OST will be re-composed by NN with professional mixing and mastering. It will probably NOT get real instruments (I prefer digital game music). The game was styled after Star Ocean 2. Look up the OST of that for the influence. It is virtually identical in composition and instrumentation.

The song I had the most influence in (and actually got to sit down and place notes down for!) was 'The Victor'.
e0zExPTZo1o
Note: That one is not remastered like Kneel and Perish one so the quality might be lower.
For this song I created nearly all of the main melody myself.

And here is the entire theme of said game, which once had a complete 2D and 3D trailer to it that was lost in the computer crash (in fact the massive loss of data is why I decided to help others with games and slowly rebuild instead of jumping back into this one). This is the extended Theme/Trailer Full version. You can really get the space adventure feel of the game here. XD;; Listen until the climax at the end. IMO worth it.
Jscsb0YyrL4

I sadly had some upwards of 3k (yes, 3000) followers and players of that game (some demos were released at one point, battle demos). I had to let them know the game was on hiatus. That really sucked. >_<;;;

---------------------------

The sound files for the other game, Anything, I am responsible for cleaning up, processing, etc the voice over (that voice actress has a horrible mic. i have to restore it to okay-ish quality for the game samples). The battle music for it is controlled by Intimate Label (An actual Korean music label lead by Jaydop) so he will have the real music pieces for it whenever he can. Anything will have a primarily hop hop/rap, funk, rnb, pop OST with Korean influences. All of that spacey rock music you here there is for my personal game which is a sci-fi fantasy game. I just needed filler to see what a vocal would sound like in music for a battle demo. Like placeholder. This Anything game is more of a modern age game, so the spacey sci-fi rock doesn't fit it~.

On another note I just got fresh in the rest of the VA's lines......and she really.............REALLY creeps me out. I'm reminded of Higurashi madness with this: http://www.esnips.com/displayimage.php?pid=34165185

New track on the Soundcloud, guys. Cover of a Beatles song called Blackbird (yeah, more acoustic stuff, I'll get some full songs up at some point, they just take longer to arrange and mix).

I'm aware that I made a couple of lyrical errors (stupid me, I'll probably reupload it with a rerecorded vocal), but I've posted it mostly just to ask if the production sounds good enough? I.E. is it listenable?

I also have a short demo of an instrumental track (an original) that I'm working on that might go on there at some point too.

As I wrote in my latest blog, this won me a little award thingy for best CV UST designer. I apparently have one of the "Most realistic UTAU styles out there for straight CV". Now THAT makes me feel good!

You can compare mine to say: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-YSTHJZ4cQ&t=50s


This is only my second UST from scratch! (it had to be around a 30 second - 1 minute sample for constraints).

Too bad the resampler swallowed his consonants, but I plan to manually edit them in better (Just the K, T, and Sh). As I said before he really doesn't even a half bank, so to be able to get him to sing all the right things with what I have takes ungodly amounts of time and work. But it pays off.

Toad also had majority vote for the 2nd most attractive non-Japanese male UTAU voice! Yes, bow to his smex of a voice. Mwahahahahaa.

What is the largest crowd/group of people you've played infront of? What was it for? How did you feel before, during and after the experience?
Full restaurants and on stage, I'd say the most I've performed for was about 100 I guess. I don't like to be focused on so smaller groups tend to make me more nervous (although the psych ward I played for was another story- another story for another time u.u). I perform for the sake of playing at all, although I have performed competitively and I was always dragged into those kinds of events. It's uplifting to receive recognition and praise for something you're talented at, but I find the attention overwhelming. I don't mean to sound self-righteous or corny but I'd really rather play for a good cause, performing just feels entirely different when in the back of my mind I'm brightening a day. Music flows out of me, I'm not near as nervous and rigid.

anyway.

Thanks! I live in Austin, TX, which is known for its variety and abundance of music venues so it's not very difficult to find places to perform. I think, as a fellow musician, you'd thrive here. :)

I play piano and I'll sometimes sing. I must admit that I get nerve-stricken and that always hinders my performing in the beginning, but it doesn't take that long/that many drinks for me to settle. I play at random places, I know a cafe and a couple bars that allow 'open performance nights,' if you will (and provided you have certain sound equipment), and I have a friend I met through work that now owns a restaurant and has allowed me to play on his stage a few times. It's a little extra money in my pocket, that's what drives me; although I'd like to start teaching music (again, I used to for really young kids, but I'd like to learn to play technically so I can teach older age groups) or playing for nursing homes or something like that.


Anyway, sorry so long. :s I see you're a guitarist- have you ever performed for a sizable group of people? (Forgive me if you answered the question already, I skimmed through the thread and if you did answer I missed it)

I'd love to earn money from it, because the audience appreciate it and performing is incredible fun. Getting paid to do something you love is the ultimate career.

Of course. The band is paid for every show we play and we divide it amongst ourselves. My solo acts are where I make the most money. The most I've ever made with the band was only $20 in my own pocket, but I've been paid $100 for a few shows as a soloist.

Have you or would you like to make your own instrument? If you have was it fun/how long did it take and do you use it?

Yes, I would like to create my own electric guitar for the specific sound I want putting custom part in everything. Not just 1 brand or manufacturer. I have an Ibanez RG4 so it's made more for metal but I would also like to play the classical stuff without it having too much of a heavier sounding. It's now got EMG hummbuckers so it sound's really sick but not for older music.

So for this I would like to make me a Fender. What I would do is look for a Fender on Craigslist or something wouldn't care what model it is just as long as it's an Fender. I don't want a Squire because the guitar body is actually made differently to sound different so a Fender would send more of a smoother sound. I would keep the neck but then replace everything else.

In order of what I would do to create my Fender guitar.

1. Go to Lowes and get the materials I need to do this, I would buy sanding papers to completely sand off the paints job and make my own and buy sand papers to smooth it out, and buy the paint, etc.

2. Take the guitar apart and separate everything so I know where they are.

3. Order the parts I'm needing. I would like a sunburst finish and would get gold hardware for it so I would order the bridge, tuning pegs, volume knobs, screws, etc. Would like to have a floyd rose but if the body doesn't have it then I could always use tools to make it fit.

4. While waiting for parts to arrive I would then proceed to paint the guitar with the specific paint job that I want. I would probably pay my friend cash to do it because he has a certificate in body shop so he knows how to do this.

5. When guitar paint is finished and parts have arrived I would first put the pick ups in and wire them up and make sure they are soldered in the back and then proceed to put the bridge on. Once the bridge is on I would then put the back plate on so now my body is pretty much finished. I would then get my pick guard/scratch plate and line it up to screw it on and put the tuning knobs on and pick up switch knob thing on. Once I have the body finished I would put the neck on and screw the neck plate on, now the neck is on. I would put the tuning pegs on and then string her up.

If it's a floyd rose I would have to mess with the springs in the back to my needing for tuning.

That's the way I would do it if I were to make an instrument.
