Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Yeah ever since flex pitch came out I have never needed/wanted to use the automatic pitch corrector except for very specific effect purposes (and flex pitch handles those use cases with way better tunability anyway, even if it isn't quite as fire-and-forget). I love that with it I can go in and choo...

Re: Artiphon Instrument 1

Okay I should go into more detail than that. The frets aren't sensitive enough. The picks are too sensitive. The arpeggiator is useless. It has all the dynamic range of a boiled turnip. It's aimed at beginners who don't know how to use a keyboard, but it's not nearly as easy to use as a $50 MIDI key...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I love the hell out of flex pitch and use it Quite A Lot. It's also very versatile and lets you do all sorts of neat effect things, and it's replaced Vocal Transformer for me since it can also do formant modification and a whole bunch of other stuff (and also sounds better). It's very easy to go dow...

Don't worry, in three months there will be a reboot where he's a sassy teenager. (Unfortunately we'll all be retconned out.)

Re: SongCoin Idea

This sounds like a particular case of fractional ownership, which certainly has plenty of legal frameworks in general (like how corporations are structured, or tenancy-in-common ownership of buildings in California or whatever). But that presupposes that a song gets big enough in the first place. Ri...

We do definitely need a system for musicians to get fuckin paid. The current royalty system is definitely not working for anyone except the major labels.

Re: SongCoin Idea

I have to say I'm pretty blockchain-negative, at least in the sense of bitcoin/ethereum/litecoin/etc., just because it has a HUGE environmental impact and not a lot of utility outside of extremely volatile financial speculation and conning investors into throwing a lot of money away. Also, it seems ...

Re: Brother Machine/Seth Gibbs Hxaro

If anyone wants to contribute to the chorus stuff at the end of Space Cadet (I cannot guarantee that I'll actually use it and if I do it'll be very heavily processed) here's a pitch and rhythm reference. If you do this please email it as a wav, flac, or high-bitrate mp3 to fluffy-spacecadet@beesbuzz...

Re: Hologram Concerts

I'm with Dweezil Zappa on this one. Especially when it comes to artists which would probably been appalled to know that they were being turned into intangible puppets for pure profit by those who had nothing to do with their works.

Wow, while delving into the dark crevasses of the wayback machine (trying to see if he ever put lyrics on his own site) I found out that he'd submitted two songs for Space Cadet - "Seth" is also him. https://web.archive.org/web/20040411120058/http://bromachine.msspro.com:80/music.html http...

Re: Brother Machine/Seth Gibbs Hxaro

I concur with Glenn and I think the third line maybe also has a "do" in it, "What do you think of us now?" On a relisten, yeah, there's definitely a "do" there. Or it's a "Whaddya think of us now." Or whatever. Glenn's take on the ??? words don't make sense b...

Re: Brother Machine/Seth Gibbs Hxaro

also don't let my posting about Space Cadet discourage anyone else from covering that one too. It's such a great song (definitely my favorite of his) and I'd be happy with a hxaro of like 50 different versions of it.
