    If you ever get a nice PC upgrade, I highly recommend the Mass Effect series. It's very story driven and heavily inspired by STar Trek, and the gameplay is far more RPG and team building based than it is a shooter game. The Geth in particular are heavily inspired by the Borg, who were in turn heavily inspired by Doctor Who's Cybermen. The archetype had a pretty awesome progression.

    Ah...then the Farenghi kinda don't serve a point in TNG. I love the episode where they tried to build them up as this freaky, hyper-threatening species and then when you get to see them...it's still not quite as silly as the original series haha.

    It was my favorite style at the age of 17 and 18. I mostly heard those bands only, though, it was way more difficult to get hold of music at the time, or especially to learn of new bands. You bought what Metal Hammer Magazine told you, or what you saw on MTV Headbangers' Ball. :) In general I tend to listen to music - any kind of music - to saturation, i.e. until I get bored of it. This is so with Wagner, for example, usually I don't listen to it much, but then roughly once a year I only listen to Wagner and nothing else for a month or two, until I reach saturation point and I don't want to listen to it any more. I usually enjoy the music I actually listen to very much at the moment, and so want to rinse and repeat after each time I finish and album/symphony/opera/whatever. Then I get bored and jump on to some other style.

    Season 1 has some big misses, like Angel 1, but the hits are just as great as later season highlights. The Oomox scene compilation seemed pretty funny, at least funniest than Neelix lol. Stargate SG-1 starts out kinda slow, but it builds a lot...hence why I've been going through it slowly, just soaking in the details. It hit its stride about season 3, but the episode where Teal'c saved his son's life...one of the most emotionally gripping episodes by far.

    You did, but I kinda want to start with a less serialized Star Trek series just to get into it a bit more first...Stargate is taking forever since it's so heavily serialized, only on season 5 after almost 2 years lol...easing into serialized sci-fi will help. Watching chronologically, after watching some highlights (and the two parter where Picard was assimilated into the Borg was the moment the series became a must-see!) It's definitely a shaky start, but the best episodes are the ones that involve Q. Kinda funny how they build up the Farenghi, then later episodes see them just spontaneously getting Oomox to calm them down lol.

    Started watching Star Trek: The Next Generaton recently...the Q episodes are definitely the best so far, kinda curious about something...when does Worf's character get more firmly established? The Klingon are often considered hugely influential on the Klingon in Mass Effect, and even past Wrex, they were amazing in 3's multiplayer.

    Thx. :) Also, I'm getting bored with metal already. Maybe it's because I only listened to Paradise Lost and the other early British doom/death bands (MDB, Anathema). Anyway I mostly switched back to classical, even for workouts for the time being.

    I see, I haven't been very active other than listening to music on here because I have a final tomorrow. I'll take that suggestion into account. I've heard so many things about that director in my Italian lit class! My teachers are generally movie enthusiasts. I haven't seen a lot of movies, so... there's enough variety for me in Netflix. Perhaps we have more content than Germany, though. Who knows.

    just one song, but I do plan on periodically adding on to an epic symphonic metal song just made from improvs over time. It'll be kinda odd with some Arabic folk playing for the one on the demo, but that's because Ozric Tentacles somehow snuck into some synthy bits/transitions lol. Think you'll enjoy at least one or two on the demo though, it's set up to be pretty heavily layered. Just practicing to scratch tracks currently, then it'll likely be recorded in demo form in a week or two.

    ...I take that back, it ended up being closer to Christian Muenzner and Essence of Datum than anything. Very orchestral with surprisingly stripped down guitars though, so it might still interest you for being more tonally rich than a lot of metal.

    Usually I listen to whole albums, too, but on the psychological level it's different if I can disrupt it at any moment without much harm, or if it ruins the whole experience.

    Can't remember your views on neo-classical metal, but it might interest you to know that the demo will have a neoclassical metal instrumental with the bass doing leads instead of the guitar. Gonna model the bass after Beethoven's composing style if possible, I love how he composes too!

    I don't know, perhaps I'd like to say there's no waste in watching the other two, even if Western is not your thing. Or anything by Zeffirelli, I only saw Jesus of Nazareth, but I hear his other stuff is very good too. I want to watch Romeo and Juliet. It's very different from traditional cinema because he was more into theatre and plays, and the symbolism of gestures and such is too strong. On the other hand, I have been watching Netflix's Daredevil as my icon must have warned you. I think it's a good series, but to each their own (unlike Superman, this guy always ends up stitched up, broken and literally thrown in trash, but it's quite dark). They say they were sorta inspired in Taxi Driver, it's a shame I didn't watch it before they took it down from Netflix.

    I have never been much of a movies person, but that kind of 70s films in the other hand... though my film watching is being delayed by the proximity of finals. I watched the Leone trilogy last july. I generally wouldn't have given much importance to western, but it's Leone and Eastwood. And Morricone's soundtrack.

    Another additional appeal of metal (or any other kind of pop/rock music) is that songs have very little to do each other. With a Vivaldi concerto, if you listen to one movement only, you'll feel like you only listened to half a song. Whereas with metal, if you listen to three songs from an album, that's fine. With my baby daughter just born and very little time to listen to music, that's actually something I can appreciate. :)

    Ah, I see. Yeah, it could have been way, way worse. Do you like contemporary classical, like soundtrack composers? I really seem to be loving both Morricone and Rota (they wrote the sountdtracks to Leone's western trilogy and the Godfather trilogy). Today I finished watching the Godfather's first movie, for the first time in my life (I'm not much of a movies person) and I'm amazed at how good it is: the cameras, the historical details, the decadence of mafia, the amazing acting of Marlon Brando and Al Pacino... i'm in love with it all (I'll have to read the novels they're based upon)

    Basically, with VST MIDI mapping, you plug in your keyboard and use it as a "MIDI controller," which is fancy talk for "You can play the MIDI with your keyboard and record that way." When I say MIDI, keep in mind that there are actually extremely good MIDIs out there, much like synth patches but using instrument samples instead. Good MIDIs are basically just easier to use samples as far as recording techniques go, internet lists help for finding the good ones. I think you'd like PianoTeq at some point, personally. An added benefit is that you can record direct line-in that way, rather than having to fumble with acoustic with acoustic pianos. It is worth noting that if you want a more organic tone, you MIGHT want to add some slight reverb. It's what's lacking from digital recordings that analog fans dislike, even if it's technically more "clean."

    Mixing is tricky...I've gotten better at panning since that dulcimer Iron Maiden odd thing. As a joke, I might send you one of my worst sounding recordings at some point...it was a dissonant 23/16 part that had the guitars tracked twice and 3 bass tracks....I'm facepalming just thinking about it, sounded like drone metal lol. Glad you like the harpsichord improv, was going for a Castlevania soundtrack approach. GOnna try to find a pianoforte VST now, what's the difference between pianos and pianofortes? Wider dynamic range? Different woods used in the construction?

    I'm deleting my previous shout and repasting it into this because a lot of hours have passed and I noticed that I haven't answered your question properly, while I went on about my busy life. It's pretty Spotify like, minimalist in one sense but kinda weird in others, I hate the new listing of recent artists, but I like the bar image of the "Most Listened Recent Artist", the images look neat. I wonder what will happen with animated GIFs though, since it still shows my Clint Eastwood icon when I go there. Not all images have the quality to be stretched out in that way. I have been pretty busy with college and my brain is entirely exhausted after having slept only four hours for two consecutive days.

    https://www.pianoteq.com/home Also, I found this when browsing for high quality VSTis recently and I think you would adore this. For as little as $130, you can basically have 10+ sampled pianos through a keyboard. One of the ones they sampled is a staggering $90k, so you know they have a very ambitious side to what they're doing. It's bar none the best VSTi I've ever heard, and if you want the most bang for your buck for learning piano, you could run your keyboard through that in Mixcraft. Not sure how you feel about digital recording (since basically all classical is recorded analog,) But it seemed like something that might interest you. I'm sure as hell buying it once my job hunt works out.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4IqZ0-Ls0g Since you liked the piano improv, figured Id link you the new classical improv (with better MIDI samples.) Solo harpsichord sounds super Castlevania at times, but I just think it makes for a fun instrument to play around with. Hopefully you like it, I like sending you this stuff since there's not many classical fans I know for feedback on these.

    Aaaaah, the old school hip hop bands tend to be way too simplistic for my tastes...can I just recommend Flobots at least? They have some funk and such thrown in with great political lyrics, with extensive use of violin. The only other hip hop I know with classical thrown in is Drop Da Bomb by Dr. Steel, but he is probably more comedic than the stuff you often go for. As far as the Sennheisers go, I'll definitely make a note of these for next time I am in that area. It's a 20 minute or so drive, but I like driving down to browse the book store on the rare occasions that I have the spending money.

    Since you got me back into Beastie Boys, I'm curious...how deeply into hip hop did you explore? The modern mainstream stuff is garbage as everyone knows, but the underground/alternative hip hop scene has some truly awesome gems. The ones that comes to mind immediately are Lupe Fiasco, Flobots and Aesop Rock (noted for having a massive vocabulary, nearly 10k words used to Shakespeare's 5k!) I also have to give props to CunningLynguists, I already loved that pun and I'm glad to see a group use it haha.

    Confession time: I value home listening over concerts often. There's a lot of stuff that simply sounds better if well recorded and mixed in studio, and usually concerts are at places like bars that are just unpleasant. The occasional concert is awesome, but I might actually end up trying those $1,200 headphones someday and buying them if they have effective surround sound. The thing that made it kinda tricky to me is that music is almost always recorded in stereo. and covnerted to surround sound, so that would likely require WAV files for portable listening....far from practical. Scrapping the idea now, that's beyond impractical haha.

    mese scorso
  • Sanity_Theorist

    If I was going to go that route in terms of expensive headphones, I'd want one that converts stereo to surround sound...do those exist? Portable surround sound is likely extremely expensive if it does exist.

    The 650s would potentially be better for mixing and playing guitar/bass (I live in an apartment, so I need to use headphones.) Places like Best Buy have mney back guarantee, but importing gets a tad expensive. ALkaloid was worth it, if they're high enough quality they'd be worth the cost when the time comes!

    It's a satisfying feeling that after having to be super spendthrift with getting the home studio all set up, I was able to spend $20 on an awesome independent band's CD. It'll be nice when file sharing can be done super minimally again...

  • Sanity_Theorist

    Hmm...I want to try an open back set of headphones now. Never used one if anything I've primarily used super closed back headphones. The best headphones I had ere actually $30, sound cancelling AND extra bass. Shame the electronics died extremely quickly, guess you get what you pay for.

    Maggio 2015
  • Sanity_Theorist

    I was never implying that you didn't know what you were talking about. Was simply saying that the way metal is generally produced doesn't tend to work well with higher end headphones because it brings out the imperfections that make it metal in the first place. Even bands like Wintersun will almost always sound better through speakers because of the dense mixing and such, pretty sure it's the way metal uses heavy multi-tracking these days...fills out the room better than a lot of genres but sounds extra compressed through headphones as a result. If it's an issue with neighbors, headphones will definitely be the way to go, but I don't really know much about the specs to help you pick good ones...the extra bass ones tend to bring out the punchiness to the layering. I'm just saying that generally (in my experience of course,) the higher the headphone quality, the more the imperfections will be brought out, especially with raw metal (like most of the death metal I like.)

    The thing about metal is that it's supposed to be rough around the edges, and the lack of that on recent In Flames is why they are utterly boring now. About the cleanest I like my metal to sound is Ne Obliviscaris (and they could go a little less sterile at times) and modern machine Head. Well recorded, mastered and mixed is good for metal, but retouching the recordings themselves? That's when you get metal that sounds too polished to even be considered metal. Definitely not a genre to pursue particicularly good headphones for, I recommend a good surround sound system instead if you want to get back into the genre.
