We had a discussion going on the last couple of weeks on how perfect a track has to be. I always think there should be some "imperfection" about a song. Something which reminds us all that after all there's a human being behind it and it's not just machines. That doesn't mean it's totally out of tune. I just want my songs to "live".

What do you think? Do you go for perfect productions or are you one of the group which tolerates one or two flaws to make it sound more natural, als long as it sounds good?

Second thing is: Do you use vocals in your tracks? What preferences do you have when it comes to mixing vocals? What do they have to sound like?

(I'm collecting ideas at the moment...)

Hello everybody! I changed the membership request settings to open membership. I hope that's okay for you all. At the end of the day this is all about music, recording and similar stuff, so everybody's welcome.

The second reason is that most of us are really busy at the moment with work, new jobs and homes, work, some even with recording stuff, so it's quite nice to have new people who remind us of our little and still young community here.

So a big welcome to our new members!

Now - that's a great deal: 199 € for MS20 and Polysix with multitimbrality(is that the right word?), the Wavestation, loads of effects and an cute little black controller with yellow patchcables :) FUN!!! If I had the money a few years ago, I would have payed the old price of 599€. Fortunately I didn't have the money back then :)))

Great! I wonder if you can promote your own musical works successfully in such an independent way, if you don't hava a name like Kristin Hersh & Co.???

Hello Everybody!

grufti's membership request reminds me that I haven't done anything in here for ages and I still want this community to work out eventually, so this is a short update of what I've been up to recently.

Maybe I mentioned that I passed my final exams in October. That was a hard time and I didn't get round to do anything in here. After that I was in hospital and ill for a few weeks, had a couple of job interviews and will now start work at a school near the Ruhrgebiet on the 1st of February.
That's going to be quite a hard time, for I've never worked full-time before and everything will be new, but I hope I will get used to it after a while.

The last couple of days I've been busy organizing loads of things, like having medical examinations, getting a timetable, sorting out financial things etc. But I still had a lot of time to work on a new song. I just started working with software-synths, so it's all new to me and it takes ages to get anywhere. I also have no experiences with the mixing stuff, for Tilo (einohr) likes to do that and so I was never interested in it. But I'm learning, slowly. If I have problems there's always someone to ask, that's good.

I already get the feeling I don't have enough time for all the things I want to do, but we all know this, we never have enough time. So we make the best of it. I also thought that we should try working on a website for genoxx, so that we can link your own pages and have something like a "common base" something which is representative and gives information about us. I ask Tilo and Marco (I mean einohr and grenzwert) tonight if they have any ideas. They're going to talk about stuff like this anyway, for grenzwert has done some sites for his own homepage, which will be for his "grenzwert" cd-label. He's obviously getting started now. But I tell him to post something about it himself.

I will get in touch with you as soon as we have collected ideas and might ask you for some contributions about yourself (like a short text about yourself, pictures, maybe short mp3 tracks, we'll see).

Next time you pop in, let us hear what you're up to this year and how you got over the exhausting Christmas and New Year's days.

Speak to you soon, Doro

As you see there's not much going on here at the moment. We are probably all busy, it's that time of the year when you're motivated and want to do things. At least I try.
But feel free to get involved here. I'm sure I will get this community working before the end of the year, if my work leaves me enough time for it (it will...).
Another problem is that einohr and grenzwert are a bit shy when it comes to posting stuff in English. But I do my best to convince them to do it.
I hope you can contribute some ideas, so that we are all a bit more motivated ;-) Hope to hear from you soon...

</b></a>einohr  found a link which I think is quite interesting. If you are looking for VST Plugins and other music stuff, check out Don't Crack, a site with loads of free stuff. I already tried Arpache 5 which is a simple arpeggiator you can use as insert effect with Cubase. It works, but it's not as good as a hardware synthesizer with this function. I also quite like the Impulse synths which you can find in the Virtual Instruments section. It has many presets but you can modify them which is really good. Quite funny sounds can be made with Sun Ra - for the ones who need some strange samples, soundtrack-like, for your music. It's free, so just try it out.

I think einohr and grenzwert  can tell you more about some of the other synths and plug-ins, they've tried out some of them, too.

Apart from that I got some other links with information on mixing (I'm still a beginner and trying things out), so for the ones who are interested: Recording & Mastering Studio and Six Elements of a Film Mix (which is more on making film music, but there is a good list of the frequencies of the different instruments).

Btw. einohr  and I are interested in making a soundtrack for a very short film. If anyone out there is looking for musicions for his/her video-project, just get in touch with us. I would be grateful if it was no porno or other "bad-taste" thing! ;-)

Hello ericn378 !

Your are now a full member of this communty and you have admin rights. Feel free to use them to edit the interests list for example or work on the texts on the info page. We are also thinking about creating an own website which will be linked to the member's websites, and some space where we can upload files. Do you have any experience with p2p file-sharing things? Would that be an option for us? Your ideas are welcome!

Would you like to have a genoxx e-mail address? If yes, just mail us the name we should put before the @ and we will send you the details for the account (username, password etc).

If you have any questions, just ask!

By the way: I installed Firefox and visited your website. I like it! First it was a bit odd, because the IE opened the images first and then the soundfiles without it. I would say you need both inputs, visual and auditory, to understand it. :-)
