^ woohoo, a great honor, the might Tunafish as a follower! and teringvaag is a great compliment
rhow, love your tracks, just enough out-rospective for an introspective. if that makes -any- sense.
you remind of my mate;
which is good, i reckon.
i've troshed all my old sh!t on sndlcld, here. it's a bit outy not very inny - if you get my drift.
mostly cu base, some buzz, some pt2.3,
the best thing about trackers, or protracker, it -made- me think of new tracks, or pttns i knew i had finished a good good one when i had got to FF (in hex) that was it no more,... every 4 bars something would happen. compare that to cubase ( i think you can hear the difference) same beats, 4 mins.. same bass, 4 mins, on PT no way jose. come up with something new. every 20 secs...
anyway some old sh!t to smash your time up!
@daiwiba - what key ya'll in bro? time to fire up bristol (in the repos) and whack the hammond keys.

@rhowaldt - I liked this a lot
Would you mind if I downloaded the Bulldog Track and tried to add some guitar parts to it?
@wux - if you mean the Crunchbang Strut, it's in G. I liked the Extracts stuff and would love to hear some Prince-style funky guitar in there (nothing wrong with what's there of course, just a bit of what my ear wants to hear )
@wux: thanks, and you got nice stuff there too, how long have you been making music?
@dawiba: thanks man. no, go ahead and download and use whatever you want. i got all my stuff under a CC license for share-alike, so if you have a finished product simply mention my name and share it under the same license, and you're done!
i wonder if we could pull together some kind of music repo, or a internet radio stream specifically of music made by #!ers.
i know jony123 has LiberatedMelody, and is, through his experiences with that, adept enough to set up some coolnesses...
in honour of Aaron H. Swartz,
make liberating JSTOR (and similar)'s database(s) of knowledge from behind paywalls your #1 priority,
and keep making the world a better place.

^ nice idea, i've got about an hour of oldskool mods
I've been making music on the computer since, err my A500 in 1995ish. took a minor break for college, then back in with my shiny Mac 4400. used ComputerMuzys then Cubase vst, then i got into turntable-ism dejayed for a few years. one of my 1210's got busted at a party (pulled the wires and the PCB clean out) so that took a break, after a spot of unemployment, wife suggested making some tracks... yeah. used MuLab on PC (and yes renoise) now getting into live performance with my ancient yammy DJX.
well you did ask.
thanks for the thumbs up guys. it is fun!
@rhowaldt - what bpm is your track (Bulldog) ?
^ i'm not sure, but there's a good chance it was programmed in 360bpm, as most of my tracks are. however, it doesn't sound like 360bpm as i only use such a high count to increase the detail available to me in my music software. the actual 'beats' you're hearing might be slower.
^Not to worry. I didn't manage to do anything with it over the weekend (busy), but I downloaded it earlier and had a quick try at some guitar.
I put your track in a new Ardour project and set my bpm to 120 (this was before I'd seen your reply) and I messed around with a little bit of lead guitar. I wanted to know the bpm as I wanted to do some guitar with synced fx, so I'll try that later. I also messed around a bit with some compression on your original. Let me know what you think (hope you like it so far )

^ ha, i think it's pretty cool! i need to adjust my ear because i know the track and all of a sudden there's a whole new instrument added to it. i like how you tried to play the guitar in the same type of screechy and jumpy way as the main melody line. i can hear it is rough, and i am curious to hear what you'll do with it given more time. not sure i like the compression though, i feel it is muddying things up a bit. but i never listened to the two side-by-side so not 100% sure about that. it's more of a feeling.
the other thought i had was that the melody i got in that track is so very present, that adding the guitar kinda just doubles up the melody and makes it even more present. in other words, i feel like what you'd need to really work with is a track which has a more basic setup, for example just the drums and bass and fx etc, but no standout melody-line. that way, the guitar would be the thing really standing out, and would be able to perform on its own. right now i feel it is often battling for attention with my own melody line. next time i make music i might consider building something along those lines for you. but i can't guarantee anything as i usually make music when i'm not sober
i hope i was able to convey my thoughts there, it is difficult talking about this stuff. and i hope i didn't insult you or anything, because i didn't mean to. it is all constructive criticism, and simply the fact that you've gotten excited and made the effort to do this means a lot to me.
@rhowaldt - I agree with your thoughts and don't worry, there was no chance of causing offence with your comments, they were spot on. In fairness, it was a first pass (from download to finish recording was less than 30 mins) and I was just recording the first thing that came out of the guitar. It would definitely need played a few more times to polish it up as well as being mixed to try to fit it in that bit better. I'm still hearing some sort of trippy/synced delay type rhythm guitar in my head, so I might try that next. Anyway, at least you didn't hate the idea Thanks for the feedback
@junkie - that's a nice piece and a really interesting sounding guitar. Sounds like it might have double strings. Does it?
Yes, double strung.
The Baroque guitar is also called a 5-course guitar
Guitars didn't have a low E string during the Baroque period, and only an octave on the 3rd course(gG)
or 4th course(Dd).
The fifth course(aa), the top strings, are the highest sounding notes
hey Peachy, that's awesome! i hope you enjoy the tracker-interface, as it is quite different from the 'traditional' DAW. also, you'll have to learn how to make due without a whole bunch of synths. or just use VST etc of course. but with Renoise, basically all i do is sample-based. if i need a synth, i'll just use the awesome Adventure Kid Free Waveform Pack and play from there with fx etc. i love Renoise's native fx, you can do a lot with them. also, the scripting-option they added in 2.7 has brought a whole host of tools for workflow and stuff, which are great too.
let me know how you get along, and if you have any questions. also check out http://tutorials.renoise.com for about everything you need
edit: ow yeah, the Renoise community is pretty friendly too. it can never beat ours here, but friendly nonetheless.

this is a bit off topic but quite a few years ago there some folk (mostly germans) who would compete with each other to make music combined with animation but keep a rediculously small file size. I downloaded a few and they blew me away - I couldn't believe how small the file size was and how great the graphics were. This was in the days before broadband. I dont have the files anymore - wish I could find the one I remember most.
As for making music - yeah I always found Reaper best on the pc
beware the stasi
Very nice, Junkie. I forgot it was your link and kind of got lost in it while reading Distrowatch. A mark of a good piece, I reckon.
Coming soon: www.*********.com - It will start at mediocre but the aim is to have it at abysmal by the second release.
