"If you are truly a self-actualized and aware person, you will be of value to others. That is what friendship is all about. Being of value to others. If associating with you brings me joy, I want to be your friend, and visa versa."

"Arnoud Traa, you misunderstand. I did not assume, I asked for clarification: “Is it because… ?” While I have seen vague questions on here before, this was clearly asked, with a YouTube video linked to the specific timecode. What seems obvious to your wealth of experience may not be so for a newcomer, so given good intentions and community spirit, I’d rather give the benefit of the doubt — and I did point torritorri to YouTube tutorials, now that he knows the name “Pryda snare” to continue his research. I do appreciate your explanation, that is more helpful than a context-less downvote. :)"

GOOD EXAMPLE OF WHY WE SHOULD BE FRIENDLIER IN WELCOMING NEW COMMUNITY MEMBERS, AND EXPLAINING A BIT MORE — OR AT LEAST FOLLOW THE REDDIT PRECEDENT OF RULES IN THE SIDEBAR.

"It’s a traumatic experience for someone who loves you to see this happening to you. They want reassurance that everything’s going to be okay, but you might not be able to tell them that with any authority,” she said. “The thing that is most helpful is being willing to sit with the depressed person, not treating them as someone who’s sick or suffering, just being willing to interact and be there and not make everything about the depression."

"“Most fun activities just left me existentially confused or frustrated with my inability to enjoy them. Months oozed by, and I gradually came to accept that maybe enjoyment was not a thing I got to feel anymore,” she recalled."

I recall when my Alesis QS8’s timing choked when I played too many notes at once — frustrating then, would be a neat wonky/glitch effect now.

"Have you ever tried multiplying roman numerals? It’s incredibly, ridiculously difficult. That’s why, before the 14th century, everyone thought that multiplication was an incredibly difficult concept, and only for the mathematical elite. Then arabic numerals came along, with their nice place values, and we discovered that even seven-year-olds can handle multiplication just fine. There was nothing difficult about the concept of multiplication — the problem was that numbers, at the time, had a bad user interface."

"This is what we’ve made electronic music into: keep it away from subjects that would pertain to people on a wider scale. Space, time, being? We only want to talk about what tee-shirt a DJ wears, or the brand of headphones he uses."

"We wish this could have lasted forever, but costs were high and risks were higher. It’s only been a week, but its time to head home, lie on the couch, and watch “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” We plan on developing future apps, but Samplify will not be one of them."

I tend to setup initial loops somewhat sparingly, because it allows for more flexibility with complementary improvised elements in the overall arrangement — otherwise it’s misleadingly easy to delete a few layers here and there and leave it at that.
