They’ve essentially leveraged and reoriented a ton of the built-in features that their website-building service already provided to give musicians a way to design project campaigns and incentivize their backers with rewards. Here’s how it works.

Our editor Jeremy actually recommended I write about this one and, boy, did he choose a good one. This video of the grunge gods, Nirvana, performing at the Video Music Awards, starts off with “Rape Me,” which they were told not to play at the event. After the show, Krist Novoselic threw his bass up in the air and hit himself in the head with it. Then, the band pulled a Who and got destructive with Dave Grohl running to the mic and calling out, “Hi, Axl!” to Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose.

As we’ve established, one of the first places that phase issues can crop up is with multi-signal recordings. Common culprits include drum sets, or acoustic guitar setups. When two very similar (or even identical) signals with a delay of < 20ms are added together, they produce a phenomenon called comb-filtering. This is a hollow, sweeping kind of sound, similar to a jet airplane or traffic passing by. Although it’s exaggerated and used for musical purposes in flange effects, it’s generally unpleasant and should be avoided.
All this is corroborated by an intensification of dynamics, which grow gradually into fortissimo (1:05 onwards). A first climax is reached in the Prestissimo section: (d.) is now played by both hands and the staccato articulations are now accented, longer (and therefore heavier) notes (1:58).
TDR Nova is a parallel dynamic equalizer that actually covers a number of tasks: parametric equalization, side-chain compression, dynamic equalization, frequency selective compression, multi-band compression, and wide-band compression. Essentially, this is a Swiss Army knife EQ that can solve pretty much all of your home recording problems, whether it’s vocal sibilance, lack of drum bus weight, or overall master bus clarity. Trust me — you want this EQ.
In general, women should have about eight full glasses of water per day, and men should drink about ten. Though we like to use that as a basic rule of thumb, this doesn’t take into account the other factors that contribute to dehydration. Some of those things include temperature, air dryness, and the other things you’ve put into your body throughout the day like dehydrating beverages, foods, and medicines. Speaking of medicines…
It’s important to keep in mind that a lack of lyrics doesn’t mean that a piece is formless. Things are still frequently organized into typical sections of four, eight, 16, or 32 bars.

It feels as if everything I’ve worked on in the last 18 years has been leading up to this moment. The pieces of the puzzle have come together, and I’m using everything I’ve learned and putting it into Muru. I want to contribute to the future of music technology and how we use Artificial Intelligence.
Now that I’m an adult and a professional touring artist myself, I wanted to look back at some quotes from my personal favorite artists whose work I grew up on to see if they still resonated with me. Here are seven that I thought were particularly inspiring.
If you follow your own ear instead of the attempting to mimic the sound of your favorite guitarists, you’ll be on your way to creating a tone that’s unique to you that others are going to want to copy.
Hunter Farris runs the Song Appeal podcast, which focuses on the psychology behind why we like the music we like. His podcast on music theory and music psychology has appealed broadly enough for Hunter to speak at Comic-Con 2018, and is instructive enough to be used as homework by a Music Theory professor. He currently teaches people to play piano by ear and make their own arrangements of other people’s music.
