(please boost)

so cool that I can make changes to a release after it's been released (it's just change of case in the title, no worries)

if you have thoughts and feels when listening, I'm hungry for feedback, always.

@luka loved the intro on Ringer of Shkmeris . Reminded me of some early Einsturzende Neubauten.

@mariusor thank you. love your feedback. i like einsturzende, tho I haven't listened to them much.

@luka need to listen to this asap - which sadly means in the late afternoon. I'm very curious!


I haven't listened on headphones yet, though I'll try to this evening.

The brooding atmosphere of both compositions is striking. The insistent _thwomp_ in the first piece reminds me oddly of something I'd do. :) At first the bright arpeggios threw me off, but later they made sense in context.

I haven't looked at the code yet, but it sounds like you are doing quite a bit of detuning / microtonality work.

First impressions - I'm enjoying it immensely.

@luka Did you mix/master the tracks with too or do you use a DAW or other tools? I saw a SynthDef \limiter in the code, is it for some finishing touches of the main mix?

@jine limiter is there just to tame those peaking bass kicks, yes on the last stage on the main channel before output. there was no extra mixing stage. mastering was done through page - so called A. I. / algorithm mastering - I just needed some extra punch and equalisation as fast as possible - it's far from the best solution. so... no other tools, really.

@luka Really enjoy “Ringer of Shkmeris Mta“ especially the scattered metallic beats and the bright synth dancing around the very present bold kick.

@luka BY-SA-NC, No commercial makes it proprietary still.

@potatoxel non-capitalist peer-production. and, yes, you're right, thia is not freedom in RMS sense.

@luka @potatoxel I wonder if you can combine BY-SA-NC code with GPL to infect it with non-commercial.
If not I'd like to see that license written ....
@penny @luka No they both want to make the other code their license, thus they are incompatible. Also your code will be proprietary not free software (under the FSF definition), nor open source (under the OSI definition).
@luka I would not agree with the NC for code. I agree with the FSF in the definition of free software as of today.

@potatoxel I am convinced by Dmitry Kleiner's argument that GPL et al. are not thinking about how programmer (worker) should be protected. That's why I think peer production licence's approach to selectively allow commercial use is much better than demand by GPL to indiscriminately allow commercial use by anyone: corporation or poor programmer in deep south.

@luka u do u :3 goodluck. for me ill produce GPL licensed or AGPL licensed software mostly q:
