How significant is the music?

Music – what is it? Where did it come from, and in general, why does it exist? It would seem that the questions are worthy of a child, and the answers to which are rather banal and known to everyone, but, nevertheless, who can give an exact answer? Let’s try to figure it out together, so …

20-30 thousand years ago, the first more or less intelligent people arose who had already begun to think about what else they would do on this planet, to do, except go hunting and war, thoughts than to fill their stomach, and playing the game »With females of the tribe.

The advent of electronic music

Electronic music owes its birth precisely to experiments with sound. Experiments with sound, or rather with sound vibrations, were essentially closer to science than to music. But it was precisely this experimental scientific work that was the beginning.

The coordinate system starts from zero. The decimal count starts with one. Two points of view that contradictory debate among themselves – when does the next century begin, 2000 or 2001?

Revitalizing MIDI Drums

Many may rightly argue that the great advantage of sampled, electronic drums is that they don’t force you to use ‘realistic’ rhythmic patterns or drum sounds. Most dance music, for example, is created using incredibly fast, accurate patterns and sounds that have only the most superficial relation to something that can be reproduced by hitting a stretched drum skin with a wooden drumstick. The ability to create rhythms by programming, layer by layer and step by step, of course, offers great scope for imagination and freedom from technical and sound restrictions imposed when it is necessary to play and record a real drummer.

However, it happens that the sound and feeling of a real drum part is required, and circumstances – time, place, lack of funds or lack of a drummer – force people who themselves do not play the drums to “rattle” something in the sequencer. And, although the sequencer part will never be a perfect imitation, there are many things you can do to make it seem more convincing. Continue reading
