Surely we are meant to have sport analogies?
Works for me, but beats me how to do this in football fields.
that'd require one of us to know about sports
Does winking count? Tiddly, that is.
Does Galaxian count?
Defender was the best . . . especially for sound effects!!
Wonder what kind of sound chip they used to use in those things . . .
come now.....defender was 4 sissies....
this is still the $hit
Galaga was ace!! :iyes:
Especially when you got to dock the ship with a new one, and had extra firepower . . . :ibiggrin:
Oh dear oh my
Two of my synths were acquired dead (but I fixed and calibrated them.) I'm building a MIDI-controlled 303 clone kit, but with a few modifications. I'm designing an analogue percussion synth. A valve analogue percussion synth.
And I'm building a guitar. With unique pickups on it that I'm in the process of inventing.
One day I might stop messing around with all this stuff and make some music... :irolleyes
It depends on the kind of sound I want, but if it's something standard I nearly always prefer to start from an initialised patch and build up from there for the simple reason that most softsynth presets are just too complex.
Native Instruments are particularly bad for this, as most of the presets seem to have been designed to show off what the synth can do with every one awash with FX and complicated modulation, and there's a real lack of simple, upfront, usable tones which fit in the mix.
Unpicking somebody else's programming is about as dull as it gets. Like scraping your arse on a brick.
This morning I made drag and drop a la Massive work in SM.
Which was quite geeky.
Last night I trimmed and cleand my monopoly. Geeky
This morning I carved a likeness of Klaus Schulze into my helmet with a paperclip.
Geeky and indescribably painful.
I am very geeky for knowing tangerine dream wrote the theme to street hawk Le parc.
But then again kids shows is how I was introduced to most things of s synthesizer nature
Right... If we're having a "TD TV soundtrack" geek willy-waving contest.
Chris Franke did the soundtrack (titles and incidental music) to Babylon 5.
BTW - did you know that they were first choice for the Bladerunner soundtrack gig before it went Vangelis' way? Scott is/was a fan.
I think the true TD geek is the one who has The Keep soundtrack on vinyl...
I did have, but I sold it when the CD appeared.
