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 #funkwhale instance to post it up on...
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!
Sorry, forgot to caption the pic. It's a white block resistor (cement, I think?) that has the writing "5W330RJ" on the side
@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.
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 #foss 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 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! 😎
