As if Facebook didn't own enough of the social media sphere they had to go and make an app called BARS. But I will admit, from an IT worker perspective, it is a slick app.

@re93animator @ynwtf @Sedai

So last year I was in a business competition for startups. One of the things I won was a 6 month desk rental. Obviously, covid thoroughly mucked everything up.

But I have the desk now! I still got a lot more equipment to set up and things to test/iron out, but I should start broadcasting later in the month. I’m going to be trying for 3 streams a week (M/W/F), and I think I may make one of those broadcasts a retro/single player gamer hour.

If I can’t make a serious go of this **** in these 6 months then I will probably hang my hat up and just call it a hobby. Wish me luck!



A system of cells interlinked
Good luck!

@re93animator - I feel like I'm starting to develop my sound (vocal/lyrics wise). These last two beats were free non-profit ones. So many things to learn and so little time to learn it. I really wish I knew how to make killer beats like these.

I hear your cadence getting better and more confident. Your doing what you can: clocking in more hours. Using loops is cool as long as you’re getting the results you want. I like to mod and cut them up a lot too. For individual sample beats: it might sound shallow, but just having eq, compression, and high quality sample packs could make a big difference. Loopmasters is a good resource (not just loops). A drum machine could help as well (even software ones), especially if you want the samples to sound more cohesive / glued together. The biggest problem I used to have with using individual hit samples is that they sounded so disconnected from each other. I find the above stuff remedies that.

Yeah, I got a right amount of equipment/software that I need to deep dive into and figure out. I'm just so freaking tired after work. I am thinking, at this point, I just need to pay the local studio guys for a couple hours of lessons to iron out a workflow.

I have some chiptune software that I want to utilize to make a hip-hop album, but I know absolutely nothing about FM synths.
