    Good stuff.
    I'm UK time, so almost midnight for me atm now... so if I'm in MoFo, I've normally got Discord open. I tend to keep my profile on invisible though as I'm on numerous servers in there.

    I can easily start a thread in the MoFo Discord server as well for chucking ideas around between us as well to make things a little easier.

    Just kinda maybe chuck movies at each other for reference and ideas at the start?
    After a few weeks/months etc get a coherent list together or something?

    Just having a thunk about ideas of things and stuff.

    I got a 1950-Present list going already... I chose 1950 onward fr that list as pre-1950 is kinda light on the ground for sci-fi...

    I'm thinking maybe pool favourites in sci-fi... the two of us can maybe list them or something in a kind of order, like we do for a regular MoFo list kinda thing... 1st place gets X points or something.

    Between us, maybe if we get say, 10 movies, 20 movies, 50 movies or whatever, our combined scores depend on its placement.

    I dunno, an idea.

    You're on Discord right? Maybe the live updating text on there could be a good place to spitball ideas?

    I try to always record instruments dry, so I can morph the effects as I go. I don't know if that's what you're talking about.

    Templates come in handy, especially for orchestral folks.

    Basic subtractive synthesis isn't too hard to learn. If you don't already know it, youtube: Filters, envelopes, LFOs, & Oscillators and you'll be much more comfortable with synth interfaces.

    FM & wavetable synthesis, however, tend to be much more complicated.
Avengers: Endgame   6/20/19
Avengers: Endgame is, at best, revisionist history; it wants you convinced that the MCU can be better than it

Blade Runner   6/19/19
"More human than human" is a motto that begs more questions than it answers

Spirited Away   6/19/19
Spirited Away is also one of the few animated films where you surrender nothing when faced with the choice bet

TRON: Legacy   3/13/11
This flick will spawn new and grander films to follow
