Re: Travelling ninjas

pete you shouldn't worry tbh. most of asia is pretty safe and they have very little animosity towards westerners .. tbh it's more the reverse where you constantly get special treatment that can be too much. I've been to nepal, brunei, borneo, thailand, indonesia, bali, india I would generally prefe...

There's VERY few films anywhere near the JP on sfx, even to this day. Even the CGI bits of the original JP look better than most stuff now days.

Re: jurassic world trailer

Inception was kind of lame to be honest. Alright idea and a few good effects and a horrible sound track dresssed up like it's some work of genius. What the fuck was the point even in the skiing bit too? Just felt so out of place tonally and pacing wise. Christopher Nolan these days in general seems...

Re: jurassic world trailer

Only getting to me about the whole thing is how the effects and CGI look worse than the original film still.

Re: percussive hit packs

Just record them dry Soronery. You can always pass them through whatever effects, pedals or compression at a later date. Just get highest quality, highest bit rate, loudest and cleanest you can with your sound card. If you happen to have neve compressors lying around though, I'm sure you could put t...

Re: Just a comparison from vinyl to digital releases in cost

For any vinyl release I did, we had, artwork costs, website costs, pr campaign costs , mailing records to promo costs, competition costs, p&d profit split. the first few things apply to digital releases as well, right? Most definitely. what does p&d profit split mean? Depending on your arrangement ...

Re: Just a comparison from vinyl to digital releases in cost

Should be noted that this is the base rate (and 20 per track for vinyl mastering is VERY cheap) and as Ledge says, only so far. For any vinyl release I did, we had, artwork costs, website costs, pr campaign costs, mailing records to promo costs, competition costs, p&d profit split. Add into that the...

Very close to me. :h:

Usually I only start a project if I have an idea in mind. I have my basic rhythm or motif and play around from that point onwards. So for me, I guess none of it is random, whilst all of it is. #causeandeffect

Re: Trip hop style drums?

A lot of softer live drum samples. High end percussion (shakers, hihats) with open transients and soft eq'ing. I think a lot of the skill lies in the eq'ing of it all, making the mixdowns deep enough and just a little muddy so it all feels warm and cocoon like. Portishead used a fair chunk of geoff ...

Re: "I died today"

Yeah, I like the idea of giving a dog a good last day and all, lots of treats and friendly faces. Probably more than I'll get when I go. Regardless, I could do without being there when they actually put the dog down. But I think a lot of you miss the point, the dog party is for the dog, the presence...

Re: "I died today"

I used to live with a mate who had a dog for about 3 years. My mate passed away and his widowed gf took the dog on. The dog was old, slightly deaf and had mad arthritis and some other terminal shit. I was invited to say goodbye to the dog before she was to put down. And despite me not even particula...
