I wonder if you realise that Steve borrowed this melody from the soundtrack of the film 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'?

Funny Coincidence

I was watching the show The Oblongs tonight and noticed something kind of cool. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Zyhc1qbglzc Sorry it's in spanish, it's the only clip I could find of the episode.

I remember reading an interview a couple years ago where steve said he wants to make the next RI continuation a more "natural" sounding album. There no doubt that Reflections was ultra "spacey".

I own the BH2 and the Crybaby and personally I prefer the BH2 only because I like smooth wah opposed to the crybaby's...almost too harsh wah. Although the Crybaby is nice sometimes when you want really extreme wahs ex: if you were gonna cover voodoo child. I would recommend buying both!...... but if...

Re: Composing!!!

I've tried to do this before, but I never really like the final result, if I just finished my song, I like it very much, after a few days/weeks I think "meh" and after a month or so I think "wow, did I write this crap? All that means is that your evolving into a better musician. Your brain two mont...

All the artists listed above are great, stop contradicting everything.

Instead of arguing about it why not spend time getting better at it.

I use Fruity Loops also but not for drum tracks. I find it extremely difficult to create decent sounding drum loops on that thing...All the drum sounds are mediocre at best and creating the actual drum beat can be very tedious. Is there a certain way you make drum tracks on FL jeckyl5? I usually use...
