Ok so I couldn't find any music prod thread in here so making one to see if anyone could tell me where to start with production. I really like to listen to music and would love to make some too!!!

just play around with them, you’re supposed to be making art at the end of the day
they have the system requirements on their websites


Renoise > FL Studio


Get an audio interface like:
Focusrite Scarlett Solo ~$100
Because you're going to want low latency and it will also give you a good input for recording when you want to start recording audio.

Get a midi keyboard:
Nektar 49 $84

Learn how to play piano and also learn music theory. There is no work around to learning music theory other than learning it intuitively, but I think learning it in a structured format will take you farther faster. There is no music without music theory. Music is all math based on a specific formula that has been more or less unchanged for 100s of years including electronic music except for the most experimental stuff.

I use Ableton. I dabbled with FL a little before learning Ableton but it never clicked with me. Ableton is so simple for me all the shortcuts and how the clips and timeline and everything else work. Like I hate pro tools so much by comparison. So much more infuriating trying to manipulate the timeline with Pro Tools IMO but maybe I never studied it enough. Each producer swears on a different DAW, Ableton, Reason, Logic, FL Studio, just try them all and see which one clicks with you because they are all capable of the same things, just different interfaces.


I once made a song in LMMS.


Renoise is pretty intuitive but isn't as popular

Just don't talk about gun control

that video doesn't show anything lol. all of them were maneuvering their guns in exactly the same way


Did you get the point of the video? The point is that the size difference between a long gun and a pistol while aiming is negligible, only a few inches, because while aiming with a long guns your hands are bent, and with a pistol your arms are fully extended. That guy only talked about the stopping power advantage of a long gun but he didn't even mention what I've heard a lot of experts say, which is long guns are better for novices because the recoil is mitigated by the stock, whereas with a pistol people often hit everything but what they're aiming at because they can't control the recoil.


>your hands are bent
arms are bent


In a home defense situation, not so much, but the point of a pistol is that you take it with you. I carry one every day, and I wear it around the house. Just based off probability, you'll be using something like that more often. Of course, the ideal thing is to use it to end things quickly or fight your way to a rifle.


Moved to >>>/AKM/426.


Can we have a thread for art? Post masterpieces and amazing art work crafted through out history.

Guminer, Yakov. (1923). 1 мая [The 1st of May].


From Dostoyevsky's "The Possessed"
>“In my sleep I had a dream which was completely new to me, for I had never had one like it. In the Dresden gallery there is a picture by Claude Lorraine, called in the catalogue, I think, ‘Acis and Galatea,’ but I always called it ‘The Golden Age,’ I don’t know why. I had seen it before, but about three days ago, as I passed through Dresden, I saw it again. I even went on purpose to have a look at it, and possibly for this alone I stopped at Dresden. It was that picture I dreamt of, but not as of a picture, but as of a reality.
>“A corner of the Greek Archipelago; blue caressing waves, islands and rocks; fertile shore, a magic vista on the horizon, the appeal of the setting sun—no words could describe it. Here was the cradle of European man, here were the first scenes of the mythological world, here its green paradise…. Here had once lived a beautiful race. They rose and went to sleep happy and innocent; they filled the woods with their joyful songs; the great abundance of their virgin powers went out into love and into simple happiness. The sun bathed these islands and 65sea in its beams, rejoicing in its beautiful children. Wonderful dream, splendid illusion! A dream the most incredible of all that had ever been dreamt, but upon it the whole of mankind has lavished all its powers throughout history; for this it has made every sacrifice, for this men have died on the cross and their prophets have been killed; without this, nations will not live and are unable even to die. I lived through all these feelings in my dream; I do not know what exactly I dreamt about, but the rocks, the sea, and the slanting rays of the setting sun—all these seemed to be still visible to me, when I woke and opened my eyes and, for the first time in my life, found them full of tears.

"The Embarkation of the Queen of Sheba"
From Ivan Chtcheglov's "Formulary for a New Urbanism"
>Other examples of this desire to construct situations can be found in the past. Edgar Allan Poe and his story of the man who devoted his wealth to the construction of landscapes [“The Domain of Arnheim”]. Or the paintings of Claude Lorrain. Many of the latter’s admirers are not quite sure to what to attribute the charm of his canvases. They talk about his portrayal of light. It does indeed have a rather mysterious quality, but that does not suffice to explain these paintings’ ambience of perpetual invitation to voyage. This ambience is provoked by an unaccustomed architectural space. The palaces are situated right on the edge of the sea, and they have “pointless” hanging gardens whose vegetation appears in the most unexpected places. The incitement to drifting is provoked by the palace doors’ proximity to the ships.


>This new vision of time and space, which will be the theoretical basis of future constructions, is still imprecise and will remain so until experimentation with patterns of behavior has taken place in cities specifically established for this purpose, cities bringing together — in addition to the facilities necessary for basic comfort and security — buildings charged with evocative power, symbolic edifices representing desires, forces and events, past, present and to come. A rational extension of the old religious systems, of old tales, and above all of psychoanalysis, into architectural expression becomes more and more urgent as all the reasons for becoming impassioned disappear.


&ltthe Art Deco enthusiast, like the devotee of Expressionism, is by that interest making a statement about the nature of his or her soul. He or she is impatient with surface images, bored with frippery, and drawn by the weird and the outré. Art Deco portrays the human being as one secretly wishes to be: a kind of _Metropolis_ robot[rix] with a dispassionate, cool, and cruel disposition. Art Deco is never warm, cozy, reassuring; it is glacial and impersonal. Those fearful of, dissatisfied with, or contemptuous of human emotions seek in Art Deco a mirror which will show them - and reinforce in them - only the non-human aspects of their souls.

Post pics of your favourite pieces of art deco.

a better question is: Is art Deco bourgeois?

It is bourgeois. But is it any good? That's another question. the better question depends on whether you're looking at it from the viewpoint of hobbyist, or from that of a town planner, in my view.


The quintessential art deco skyscraper.

These are extremely cool and all but these are posters, not political cartoons… right?


They're technically both since their messages are political.

I want to start making video essays talking about things I like/dislike, but I have basically no thoughts other than "this was cool/this wasnt cool, here are a couple reasons why" and I feel like a smoothbrain because of it.
How can I become a better writer about things I like?

will check it out. MandaloreGaming had a good video on how to be a youtube video man also, but I am lacking in critical parts that he presupposes.
I am attracted to the idea of building an online persona by repeatedly putting my opinions out there for others to consume in a centralized location (blog, youtube channel, etc)
ehh, that seems like it would get old really fast, especially if I had nothing to really add on that topic
It would just become the obligatory 15 seconds where I say surface level political observations
For screen recording, OBS is great and cross platform. Editing depends on what you are using, I hear OpenShot is a p good free editor, but I've never used it since I got a cheap Vegas key


Why not just write regular essays? You can read it out loud or something if you want to post it on Youtube for ad money.


okay, but my point still stands of I don't know how to put my thoughts on paper


This book has some good ideas about it, although most of the advice requires you to find some people to practice with. But in general I think actually discussing the topics you want to write about with people is great help in clarifying your thoughts.


looks good, ty I'll give it a read

Would anyone be interested in a group stream of some Soviet era red westerns such as "At Home Among Strangers" ( Свой среди чужих, чужой среди своих; Svoy sredi chuzhikh, chuzhoy sredi svoikh)? I am also up for streaming other films if anyone has any suggestions



count me in, I'm available after 4pm GMT most weekdays


I'd love that but I'll probably be busy, depends on the day and times, what are your projected hours/days?
>I am also up for streaming other films if anyone has any suggestions
Отец Солдата (Soldier's Father) is a must-see.

just finished Vol. 1 of the Aftermath trilogy and it's acctually pretty good


yeah aftermath wasn't too bad as its own series, i think most people just dislike it as a replacement for the old EU's imperial collapse where there was rampant warlordism for years. between that and Alphabet Squadron the sequel era has a good deal of surprisingly good literature surrounding it, considering the fairly middling response to the trilogy itself.
