    okay so like my birthday is coming up right

    and i want to get some more production gear and shit, and i'm not sure if i should maybe invest in studio monitors, or some other piece of equipment, i already have the akai mpk25, which is an awesome midi controller, so i dont know what i need

    maybe i dont need anything, but i just think it would be neat to have another toy to play with

    The drummer in one of the bands I play in is moving house and found this little gem and gave it to me:

    A JHS SD1 Analogue drum synth pad. Late 70s. Made in Japan.

    Just needs some attention, batteries leaked all inside and it has no means of external power so I'm going to re-foam the top, clean the board down and install an external power socket. Neat.
    hey that's the joy division drum!

    Ok so I need help I have a few songs I wish to release as CD on internet, I saw bandcamp being used for facepunch album so I was thinking I could do the same and also other people use it, but I need help with the songs I have made so far, mostly in how song is sounding and less in how it is played.

    So first song is going to be this one, A Life Of War

    I think it is a good song to start off with since it has drive and speed which will settle of album nicely

    Second song is going to be this one, F is for F- YOU

    Is not as fast but continues on hard riffing of first song and more structured I think!

    Third song is going to be this one, Chasing Ghosts

    Sort of like mix of first and second with hard and fast drumming and riffing that is I think pretty cool but also more simple and pop.

    Fourth song I think is going to be Annihilation (New song!)
    This I looked up sounds and also made slower drumming sort of like almost saying goodbye so album will be less than 10 minutes which I think is EP size but in future I was hoping maybe singing in songs too and more pop or rock like Andrew W.K, I would be really, really glad if anyone could take their time to listen through songs (or just short snippets, first 30 seconds of every song) and write what they think of arrangement of instruments and also tone of guitar and things about how it sounds I try and learn mixing but it is hard so any help is really welcomed.

    Why is Fruity loops not letting me change the pitch of my audio clips, what is resampling and why is it necessary? Edit: Nvm, trim stopped pitch shifting for some reason.

    Editedit: Why can't you automate the time stretching pitch knob? There's no way to change just the pitch and not the speed?

    OH FRUITY GRANULIZER!!!

    the last track of my ep that should be seeing a release around march/april is now up in the form of a 2 and a half minute preview (the songs only like 4 minutes 22 though there is a nice twist at the end youll have to look out for when it gets released and put up in full on my youtube channel thing)

    but it is feeling a little lonely with no comments or anything, so yeah. after this is released ill be taking a big break from music in general to get alot of work done and sort out a bunch of things in the world of reality so that's the end of that for a while i guess. thanks everyone for your help up until this point!

    This I think not sound as much as ending but more like song to start album or maybe even song after first song? What I say is I dont think this is song to end album unless you want to make sound like it will start over again or something like that Why take break from music are you not happy anymore with it or is it just lack of comments that make sadness for musicmaking because I want to hear more of this music you make!

    Edited:

    I also found site called tindeck that you can upload music too and it doesnt change songs like other soundcloud does which is weird why do soundcloud change volume and other things but tindeck doesnt?

    i still love making music, and that song is the beginning of the ep, but its the last track i made so whoops lol. im taking a break from all the long processes that are about, like promotion and labels and all those things cause its a real chore getting your music out there; id rather make music for myself and my friends than for others at the moment

    and soundcloud compresses all audio to prevent piracy

    Oh ok it is a great song for first song then If you do not mind me asking how much do you make as musician? Is it possible to have soundcloud remove compression somehow like ask them to change to not compressed audio because I honestly do not care if people pirate my music I would like it since if people enjoy my music it makes me happy and hopefully them too

    i make between 5-10 songs a week, usually they last about 30 seconds or a minute; from that ill take 1 or 2 and expand on it and the finishing process usually takes 1-3 months id say; and if you want people to experience it in its original form you can put it up for download :)

    I guess that is true what you say and wow I admire your musicmaking I wish I could make songs that short they usually become 2-3 minutes a piece for me or now I have not made song but songs I have made so far (seven songs) have shortest one being 1 minute 45 seconds.
    You are also true in putting it up for download some people have downloaded songs but I put them down because I keep making small changes so I figure bandcamp site is best place for finished songs and I have actually put together a small album or well EP I think it is called when only few songs on smaller timescale.

    I think making thread for album release is bad idea so I will instead link album here, but maybe I could make album in general discussion like collaborative albums?

    Here is link anyway
    http://caseykay.bandcamp.com/
    I think by putting price on songs I show I think music is good enough for people to pay for and make more people interested and also support me as musician

    Yes, you are correct. All of my songs are computer generated and I have tabs for all instruments of all my songs.
    Just name which one you like the most and I'll either get you the .gp file or text tabs.

    I did a little experiment with my music last year. I released one album with a minimum price of $0.00 and up (free or donations) and I released an album for $2.00. I made more off the first album despite both being about as popular. People seem to be more prepared to pay money for a product if it's offered as donation-ware. Same can be seen with the Humble Bundles (nevertheless, that's for a good cause, which makes the situation slightly different).

    Don't get the idea that I make music for money though. :V
    It's just nice to get some cash in return.

    Cool! I wonder if they perceived the two dollar one to be a superior product though.

    i did a 5000 word study on the internet and the music industry last year for college, and in the end there was an unbelievable amount of evidence to support that unknown artists who give their music away for free end up making more money than those who dont; however the opposite applies for major label artists who are already with a fanbase of tens of millions

    Nvm I just resampled the drums. (At least I think I resampled.. No one's explained it to me. I'll look it up, I just exported it and then imported the drums audio file.)

    I'm having an interesting record lag problem with Audacity; The lag in the track isn't consistent. Instead, it seems that the instrumental and the vocals I record seem to be going at a different tempo. That means, at first the vocals sound normal and on time, but as the track progresses, the timing becomes suckier and suckier. With a quick net search, I only found solutions to the consistent lag problems (drag the recorded track on place, well no shit... :P). Anyone have a solution?

    This issue is likely with your audio interface or your ASIO settings. The issue could also be with your computer being slow.
