I've recently thought to myself: what if I just make weird beats/music in Audacity? Like, it's what I use to edit podcasts. I'm really good with it. Why fight with music software when I can embrace the horrible constraints of Audacity? I like that there's no concept of constant tempo since I'm hand-stitching samples, and I can't really undo stuff so I'm forced to commit.
Anyway, here's me defiling Elliott Smith's "Waltz 2 (XO)": https://tinysubversions.com/music/waltz-2i.mp3
@darius this is very fun
@darius This is how Burial works, it's one of the things that makes their music have such a different feel to other similar UK Garage/2Step artists, everything feels a little bit loose, more natural
@darius this sounds good!
@darius This is really cool, and I've often thought about doing the same to make something without the initial hurdles of learning a ("real") DAW.
Did you start with an idea of a specific BPM or did the tempo kinda fall out naturally from how you chopped the drum samples?
@firewally I actually worked in a completely different bpm, made the track, decided it was too slow, sped the whole thing up
@darius Wild! Good that audacity has both "Change Speed" and "Change Tempo", which I just now learned 😺
@firewally oh I just pitched it up, I never bother with those :)
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
