Things that are Downright Criminal #427: having the default Microsoft GS's Koto stop using the lovely sample at D6. At C#6, it switches over to the sample used for lower octaves, which A) makes the instrument start sounding unlike its own self past C5, and sounding like shit past F5
Why not make a third sample for C#5 up to C#6?
This weekend I'm taking my copy of Tak 2 to Nana's house with me, so I can check to make sure it's just my PS2 cocking up and not my disc. If it's my disc (which I fear it may be, since it's always worked before), then that means after 15 years of faithful service, my very first video game I could call my own will have finally died, and I'll have to get a new one. Tak 1 may not be all that far behind, seeing as how Mummy Tombs won't fucking load a second time if you complete the entire goddamn area and then leave because hey you wanted to spice things up and do it first and then you come back 130~ yorbels later only to find out that your save file is now bunkum~FUCK~
Okay, so as some of you remember, some time ago I had a crusade tirade against Reason 10 (I was totally being a neophobic coward retard, as usual, I just didn't know about the neophobia part yet). And in regards to that, I gotta say, unlike an arsey navigation system, arresting my entire sound playback is approximately 151% more bullshit. I tried to play an mp3 MS sent me, only for Groove Mixer to say "sorry nigra, some other bitchass has done stolen your entire audio". THEN I find that can't drag and drop the mp3 into Pro Tools, from Chrome... OR from Windows Explorer. And THEN when I navigate to C:\Downloads and find the mp3, the fucker has the audacity to tell me that I can't listen to it because I don't have QuickTime installed. ????Negro just ask me to fucking locate lame.dll and I'll do it! ...The fact that you've been around since 199fucking3 makes A LOT of sense right about now, Pro TOOL.
So anyways I said fuck you and closed PT, then immediately all my other sound-based programs were available to me again.
Like, SERIOUSLY? You won't play any sound back because Microsoft SYNTH GS is in use???
I don't know which is more frustrating, syncopation or crazy-ass time signatures.
Whiskey & Green Tea's chorus SOUNDS good, but attempting to copy that shit down is ridiculous.
Pools of the Ancient Dead is more workable, but for some reason despite being in the correct time signature there's an extra goddamn 2 beats past the One Measure point. If it's 10/8 then why the fUCK are there STILL eight beats in a measure??? 5/4 gives you 5 beats in a measure, what in the gODdamn hell
I think it should be noted that my literal very first experience with Dragon Ball Z was when Cell melts that business man. It was late at night and I was sleeping over at my cousin's house. It was late, I couldn't get to sleep because of the TV but I couldn't turn the TV off because he said it helped him sleep and I didn't want to be rude. I wasn't even 4 yet but my bleeding heart caused the scene to traumatize me even more than it did for other kids, to where despite it being a decade and a half later I remember all this shit. I didn't even find out that this was Dragon Ballz until years and years later when some guy mentioned it in passing during some video that I don't remember anything else about.
I am reminded of something: I finally figured out what the hell my Nana meant when she talked about my song's "endings"
Eventually, I figured out that the sort of endings she was talking about when she said "my endings are getting better", she just meant the song has a fade-out.
That was an amusing answer to a mystery that had bothered a very minute amount of my mind.
What time signature is Pools of the Ancient Dead?
I have this idea that I'll feel stupid once I have the answer, but better to be a dumbass than a dumbass who also doesn't know the answer.
God this song's weird as fuck--
I think all the different, seemingly conflicting rhythms are probably supposed to represent how during a medieval battle everyone was kind of doing their own thing, if they were doing anything musical at all, that is. But even still, help
