The new Chrono Romancer EP, Krieger, is available for download on bandcamp and streaming on all major streaming platforms!
(Just search for "Chrono Romancer" 😃 )

My wife, our friends, and I worked hard to make this happen. Give it a listen!

I'm still looking for a good instance to post it up on...

I have a sudden odd inspiration to write songs inspired by peeps I follow here on Mastodon; just name each track by their username and see what happens...

It's still a WIP, just the 1st iteration of the options to be a Demigod, but I'm a daughter of the sets of sound. It's really weird. And triggers panic attacks in there and they only give me more freedom of movement!

#MixtipMonday #15

Use the volume knob of your amp/monitors instead of trying to make things louder in the DAW.
0dBFS should be really loud, as it’s the loudest a converter can play.
Ideally you’d calibrate your listening levels so that your average mixing levels are around 83dB SPL (measured with an SPL Meter).
Why 83dB SPL?
It's admitted that you can listen to these levels for a while without damaging your ears.

I have decided to change licensing of all 884 of my sounds on Freesound to CC-0. Future sound uploads will follow.

Up until now most of them were licensed under CC-BY or CC-BY-NC. After I've started doing sound design at work I realized how invaluable the CC-0 sounds are. So I wanted to make my library a part of that public domain pool. Enjoy the freedom, make some cool sound effects!

I ordered a lot of resistors, and a potentiometer set (with knobs) to add to my already delivered quarter-inch jack. My pedal blowing out was the best thing that happened to me recently. I'm stoked to start fixing things!

Sorry, forgot to caption the pic. It's a white block resistor (cement, I think?) that has the writing "5W330RJ" on the side

Can anyone identify this resistor? Bonus points if you can direct me where to purchase one.

Went to the local musical instrument repair shop to inquire where they get there parts, but they're closed on Sundays. I understand why people miss radio shack now

@thegibson I love saying to a professional, “You know best. Do what you do,” and watching them light up. 99% of the time, they do better than any fuzzy idea I ever had, and I end up thrilled to the gills with the result.

Professionals LOVE being let loose to do what they know.

Dear right-to-left script users, what behavior of arrow key caret motion do you prefer in a text editor?

"Logical" means Windows-style—cursor might jump and invert direction on bidi boundaries
"Visual" is macOS style—motion corresponds to arrow on the key

(Boosts appreciated)

My brother-in-law left his iMac in my office back during the holidays (he makes hip-hop beats). I haven't done much with it; but yesterday I bought an electronic drumset and I've been playing around with the presets in Logic Pro X.

It's actually pretty incredible how I can translate my performance on an electronic drumset into a really good acoustic sound.

So before I commit to this, does anyone have any alternatives for the Logic Pro X drum designer?

Oh my God, Becky.
Look at this pull request.
I mean, this commit, it's just so small.
I can't believe it's just so concise,
like it's well thought out.
It's just so... good.

I like small DIFFS, and I cannot lie.
You other hackers can deny,
But when a patch comes in with an itty-bitty count,
and that bug fix in your face
You hit MERGE.

I'm using a red theme in my editor tonight and it's really doing it for me. Tell me what's wrong with me?

I spent a decent portion of the evening troubleshooting my fender solid state amp. I verified the preamp is fine, but couldn't find the problem. So I packed it back the cab and gave it a go again.

Worse than before I tinkered. 😫
Then I thought I smelled burning...

So I take it back out and decide to look at it later. Then, after watching more videos online I come across a repair video for the same amp. Compare his problems to mine...

Boom, loose resistor! Tomorrow it's soldering time! 😎
