  • "Many of the edits we do in the Tool Window are destructive, and many of the edits we'll make to MIDI data in Reason will be destructive as well." God I fucking hate this.

    WHY are you teaching what is essentially a MIDI-MAKING CLASS that uses a sequencer like this, then?!?
    Guys. Holy shit; I think the Rock Snare from CMV may be sampled from the goddamn Amen Break.

    Come to think of it, the bassline for Stan sounds a lot like a bassline from one of the WL4 tracks... maybe CMV? I dunno. CMV's def. the most hip hop of the tracks in the game, I think, so perhaps that's why most of these backing tracks make me think of CMV the most. It's honestly really easy to picture Wario's running animation with this stuff going on in the background.

    Yoshitomi seems to have a lot of Western influences. Lots of his tracks sound a little house-y like 40 Below Fridge, or like hard rock, trap, and a bunch of other punkish genres. It's really neat for a Nintendo game
    The most annoying thing about KHIII is just how overly cringefic the story's gotten by this point.
    Everyone remotely interested in the story of Kingdom Hearts, go read "A Sorrow of Magpies." I swear to fuckin' God it will make more sense than any goddamn thing the series has put out since II originally was released-- it IS my headcanon, and has been ever since Dream Drop Distance, with its 'oh hey look at all these mes that i resurrected or time-traveled to be here with me uwu' came out.
    Are there any words that you like specifically because you have a childhood association with them?
    For example, I love the word "Precision" entirely because I played a lot of Red Faction as a child.
    Today is the 1st anniversary of My Cat's passing, I believe.
    and right now my cat is in front of my desk chasing his own tail.

    ...Jesus Christ do I miss that cat.
    Even if she did literally all of her business on my floor a majority of the time, and was really terrible about cleaning herself (i.e. practically not at all), she was really good to me. It's like a crazy cat lady with a heart of gold.

    I can't tell if that first comment is supposed to be genuine, like 'hey she's still in your heart' or passive-aggressive like 'you waited a full year before saying anything.'
    I'm pretty sure that it's the former, but the way that it was worded had me almost react with an Angry emoji and now I kind of feel bad :< sorry

    well, in that case, thank you very much
    Fun fact: the soft, compressed percussion-only sections heard at the beginning of Sonic CD's Present tracks were actually put in place to fill a gap, so that the actual music could have time to load, and ran off the physical hardware, I believe, same as the Past stage themes. On the next pass, once the percussion pattern reached its end, it would transition seamlessly into the main track. Neat, huh?

    Full credit to anyone who can guess all the instruments. I'll give you Sonic CD's "Robot" preset as a freebie*. Other than that, everything comes from Twisted or WL4.

    *(I'd used it to give the Palm Tree Pluck some more oomph, and in addition, I couldn't get the +10 semi-tones self-harmony it's got goin' on to sound good with anything from WL4 or Twisted.)
    Can someone please tell me how I can turn off Adaptive Brightness for Windows 10 without citing the outdated method seen in literally every article I've looked at? (like @stupidface or @CM30)

    Edit: it's been solved. Now, if only I hadn't been so quick to close the window my mother had gone into, then I could've unlocked the secrets for all ;__;

    Lucky bastard. I got stuck with it when I got this laptop
    Those of you who laughed AT, that laughed WITH, those who spit my name the way the Emperor does that of Luke's "precious rebellion," and those to whom I am just kinda *there*, thank you for enduring all this suffering. I've started this thread https://warioforums.com/threads/the-tahutoa-thread.3385/ to continue my terrarrrr somewhere less disruptive. because like omg so sick of carrying. But feel free to drop by! Or make posts on this page, which I'll continue to respond to, possibly to Magma's dismay.

    ...It's honestly so foreign to me, being in a place where someone is there to even feel animosity towards me-- an experience I haven't had since grade school, and I must thank you all for placing me in your memory banks. Outside of my immediate family I only have a couple friends and even those are just acquaintances, so it's cool to have someone to talk to. I'm honestly kind of annoyed that I AM a forum-dweller, for lack of a better term, since I was the sort of fag that made fun of D&D players when I was younger-- blissfully unaware that my comparatively more worldly best friend and I were relatively outcasted-- possibly because of our interests. but then there was also John-- *anyway.*

    ...sheeit nigga, it's just *nice to be somewhere that I feel like I belong,* at least to some extent, as cliche as that sounds. I proudly wave the waabulous wario forums flag, and internally, probably wear my usership like a badge of honor, because I'm gay; being an introvert, I rather like flying solo, but at the end of the day humans are social creatures, and having some punk make fun of me in a way that could only happen if I've made *some* sort of impression is a lot better than getting the occasional 'this person liked' on SC or 'this person reblogged' on Tumblr. The fact that I still remember this one girl saying "okay but this totally slaps?" kind of reinforces my relatively lonely experience.

    Ironically, given my introverted status, I am a goddamn attention whore. Granted, I'm not so desperate as to purposefully throw myself down two flights, but I like it when people like me, and get disheartened when people don't, nigga. I ALREADY KNOW I DON'T MATTER? But HELL IF I GIVE A FUCK. There's music to make and people to make listen to it!

    There's not really a way to end this particular tome that I'd feel satisfied with, but then, *this isn't the end.*

    Magma's going to see this text wall and shit himself

    but then again this is my closing address, sorta, so. I might as well make a shitty love letter out of it. Especially since the Jester appreciates self-honesty, and I like pleasing the people I admire. I'm totally an asskisser in that regard, but I'M HONEST IF I DO. I GOT INTEGRITY, DAMMIT
    Why do you make posts 5 times a day
    tahutoa
    tahutoa
    Because my brain never stops turning, and there's always the off-chance that someone will find whatever it is that I've posted to be engaging enough to warrant responding.
    Case in point: my posts about Old Roblox, a Dream Donut I Didn't Get To Eat, and talking about a Time Where Insults Were Kinda Backwards. I didn't think any of them would get any sort of reaction at all due to the subject matter, but for some reason they actually all got responses.
    On top of that, this is the only community that I'm actually engaged in-- as you can probably guess.
    And I like sharing my thoughts. ...As the three previously mentioned posts have demonstrated, you never know when it'll get someone's gears turning.

    Oh, and I'm at my laptop all day, since my music courses are online.
    One thing that Mystery Incorporated did that I really like was that every time there was a really suave villain/monster/what-have-you that swept girls off their feet, it always turned out that they were secretly nerds. The Dandy Highwayman was a book nerd who read poetry & the Wild Ones consisted of the dev team behind a next-gen console. I only realized this just now, and that it was so subtle like that is pretty cool.

    Oh, and another thing, as an opposite to that, the ones who act suave & "neato" in their civilian forms end up being the bastard bad guys: Rung Ladderton, Baylor Hautner ("what's he doing with her hands?!" "He's holding them Fred. You know, that thing guys do with girls on dates"), those two football jerks who look like Doug if he had hair & Larry Bundy Jr. (though in their cases it was artificial-- the villain they shared was voiced by Mr. Krabs, though).

    What do you think, Magma, is my new pfp proving well-placed?
    Trying a new pfp. I should think the reason for my choice would be obvious-- especially to a certain product of yon Caldera.
    It feels really weird not seeing the more familiar, good ol' Ball O' String, but it's far too reminiscent of a time when I barely said anything, I think.
    I remember reading a post on Quora or smth that says spergs like myself are *extremely* aversed to the slightest of sudden changes, and I didn't really think that applied to me, until realizing just now that the reason I'm so behind in my studies is because I CAN'T. Just fucking. LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE, DAMMIT.

    "In October 1962, comedian Lenny Bruce was arrested on obscenity charges for using the word "schmuck" on stage" Oh My GODDD?
    tahutoa

    The best part about that is you'd probably see something similar for saying 'retard' on stage these days, or something to that effect, because everyone's sort of getting back into the age-old eggshell walkin', just in a different facet-- one that crops up a lot more, annoyingly.

    Anyway; I hate schoolwork. unsurprisingly. Why is it that every goddamn thing becomes a chore the second education gets involved?

    On the subject of the Troubadour club; I have to pick an act and a "fin' amors" style song. As it turns out, Fin' Amors lyrics are the sort of thing that get the sternums of hopeless romantics like me aching. IDK why romantic gestures in whatever form send these hot pangs through said sternum, but what I do know is that I'm the sort'a schmuck that goes head over heels for people that are really sweet. If I were a girl, I would... probably be as hypocritical about whether I like the effects of chivalry as every other woman-- especially since I'm a hypocrite for stupid shit already-- but I think, if I were, for me Jonathan would be Best Jojo, for example.

    Oh yeah, Troubadour club. Fuck.
    Are you related to Tamatoa?

    Well, we're both crabby (har har), can sing, have short tempers, like glow-in-the-dark stuff, can be really petty, etc. etc.... but I don't think so.

    You just reminded me though: when my family & I watched the movie, I remember going "HEY! They took! mah NAME! THEY TOOK! MAH! NAME!" like that South Park guy. I don't think anybody really cared, though.
