What do you all like for an octave up effect? Looking to try one out and not sure which way to go. I’ve seen the POG come up a lot.
so the thing i was most existed about with this amp is the octave feature, except when i turn it on i can still hear the guitar perfectly fine, o was expecting to hear it pitchshift my guitar to 12 notes down to sound like a bass, am i missing aomething or this that just how it is
because to me it just sounds like my normal guitar but with a lot of bass behind it, i wanna have no “guitar” audible and just the bass, thanks!
I’ve heard that they are essentially the same thing, but also don’t want to lie on my resume. Should I put GNU Octave and Matlab, or just GNU Octave?
The number of frequencies and points within the octave are infinite but the human ear won't distinguish the difference between the very close frequencies. So how many notes within the octave are enough for the human ear?
If the number is very large it might be impractical but if its not, then its possible to play any sound you hear by dividing the octave by the minimum distinguishable interval.
There really are so many good lines in this series. I feel like I catch new ones on every re-watch.
I'm currently watching S4E10 (All that hard, glossy armor) where Margo goes to the desert. She's heading out to collect the black sand and her, Elliott, Fen, and Josh are singing some Whitesnake, when suddenly Kady walks over and Margo is like, why am I hallucinating you? Kady's response: "Four octave range, bitch" and then she begins singing.
Sometimes I have a hard time deciding if I like Kady or Elliot's singing better. Fen is really good too.
Trying again with this batch of stuff since I couldn’t find any deals I was really into. Mainly interested in modulation and the sort of general things above.
As for the feelers I’m most likely to trade the Caverns V2 (really only need it for the shimmer) out of the three. I’d be pretty picky on the Slö and little less so on the Fathom however, I’d also be willing to bundle the two for the right deal. Open to offers on the Caverns but would only trade another reverb for both Walrus pedals.
I’d like to do the Russian for another fuzz, but I’d probably keep it if nothing comes up. I’d prefer something in the realm of a big muff/Fuzz Factory style fuzz that’s good I’m for leads. Not really looking for a sputtery type of fuzz.
Pretty set on drive for the most part but could entertain a Plumes, Dunes, Westwood or a Twin Twelve.
Nearly everything except the Soul Food, Bat and Canyon come with the original box.
I’m basically looking for pedals that sort of get me away from... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm open to all recommendations, prefer polyphonic capable pedals and if there are any small builder ones out there, let me know since I love supporting small businesses. Cheers!
I see Simon Servida do this a lot. He brings the sample down an octave, exports it then brings the exported one back up an octave (or brings it up, then takes the exported one down). I guess it has to do something with the high/low end, but I'm not sure. Thanks in advance if anyone helps me out :P
My hands are very small. There's a technique that my piano teacher has taught me before but no matter how much I practice I really just can't execute it properly. After a year of hiatus, I want to slowly get back into playing the piano without any pressure. Any suggestions are appreciated but a classical piece is much preferred. Thanks in advance
I know that this happen in most pop songs because the catchy chord progression should continue till the end, but God, there are some pop songs that lose the charming the moment they do it. Songs like shattered dreams are fine in the normal key, while others like Roxette seems to work somehow (e.g.: spending my time). Artists should pay attention to songs like Mr mister's Broken Wings. The song appeals to the mainstream while being "progressive" in the song structure. The way the song ends it's just SO AWESOME.
Hey, I am trying to experiment qnd get sub bass sounds from my electric bass. From videos such as Tim Lefebvre, his bass sounds more synthy at lower octaves I think (hard to tell via video). I don’t want the synthy sound
Can someone tell me if this is possible to so well or would I be better off just using a synthesizer to accomplish sub-bass sounds?
I need smth that sounds more natural
Does anyone know of any music that divides the octave differently than our 12 tone system? I don’t mean microtonal music. What I mean is dividing the octave equally into say 13 notes or 11 notes or 10. It seems like this would be fairly easy to do with modern digital Instruments.
I am trying to understand why makes male singers want to sing that high? Like what songs are they trying to cover? Most popular songs that I know are within the 4th octave. Personally I feel like if I had a solid g4, I would be able to cover all th songs that I would like to.
I thought full voice 5th octave notes was like a soprano thing but I guess I was wrong.
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
PS: I'm not taking about headvoice here.
Hello fellow low-end theorists and axe wielders. I come to you in an hour of great need, desiring your most respected guidance. I am looking for a gated fuzz to use exclusively for stacking with octave and/or envelope filter pedals. I am not interested in using fuzz on its own, so its versatility in stacking is of tantamount importance.
Fwiw, I'm currently using the Walrus Contraband, and it's good though not very versatile.
I've considered the following pedals, any input would be greatly appreciated about these or any others you think would fit the bill.
I've seen a number of submissions recently (mostly here, but in other communities too) where people use the "octave clefs", that is, the treble or bass clefs (usually treble) with an "8" above or below them, indicating a shift of an octave.
The appropriate place to use these is to disambiguate when the staff is for an instrument/voice that transposes at the octave. The most common use is on male voice parts, which are commonly notated in treble clef sounding an octave lower. If you were to write a score with a female voice and a male voice, both in treble clef, a reader might wonder if the male voice is at pitch or should sound lower. The use of an octave-down clef simply prevents confusion.
I've also seen this used in guitar and bass guitar parts, especially in situations where the parts would not normally be written in standard notation, and are written that way for the purpose of analysis or communication with other instruments. You could conceivably also use an octave-up clef for... keep reading on reddit ➡
I get violinists do them more often, but they go in to the nosebleed zone more often than us. Is there any practical reason to give a four octave C major a go (after cycling through all 24 in 3 octaves for years, obviously) other than for fun or am I missing something?
The highest we go is usually seventh position in orchestral, with a notable mention to the high A-Flat in Ein Heldenleben. Bartok and Walton cut out around there too, a half step higher.
How thick is the neck vs a normal 4 string cause they look similar size wise which makes me think i could build one out of old basses (id buy a bridge and a neck to customise)
like interval inversion right?
I’m transcribing a piece of music and it contains a shift from two F’s to two F#’s. It is in the key of C. When writing out the accidentals, should I put a sharp sign before both F’s or just one, and if so, which one. The F’s are stacked on top of one another, occur are the same time, are in different octaves, and in the bass clef.
Ok it's kind of a TIFU but also kind of a AMLIFU or "all my life I fucked up" I love singing along to music (i mean who doesn't?) I am the kind of person who will jump up at the opportunity to sing along with the spotify playlist or even at the bar when a good song comes on the jukebox.
I don't consider myself much of a musical person, but I can at least match pitch when it comes to music (and believe me, I know, I know some people that can't and it's infuriating). While I've participated in my fair share of musical endeavors (some voluntary, some not so much) I have always consdiered myself at least of average skill with singing, yet I've always noticed people would look at my funny. I always brushed it off as me being self-concious and not a big deal since no one ever flat out approached me to say anything I assumed I was ok.
That aside, let's move on with the story.
Earlier today a song came on the radio and I decided to sing along, as one does. My friend walked in on me singing... keep reading on reddit ➡
Does anyone have a good finger chart/scale set with all 4 octaves? I'm having trouble with the fourth octave since I'm new and I don't really know the finger placement. Thanks!
Hello people of this sub reddit. So I was bored so I came up with the idea of a fun little exercise/challenge. The inspiration behind this was me trying to become more comfortable at the extremes of my voice. So basically you take a scale or phrase from a song( preferably a phrase) and you try to sing it in three octaves. Try to avoid using fry or falsetto. This is my attempt using the beginning of change gonna come by Sam Cooke. It doesn't have to be perfect. Hope others try this 😄

I’m sorta new to piano/keyboard and wanna know what it’s called when ^title^. also are there any practices for what I’m talking about.
Hi! Hope this is the right sub for advice.
A few years ago I came across a tiny Kawai piano, five octaves with sustain and una corda pedals, on Gumtree that I loved - but the woman was asking an high amount, more than I thought it was worth (and much more than my uncle thought it was worth - and he’s the president of the piano tuner’s guild here in Australia). I offered less but she didn’t accept and I always regretted missing out. She tried to tell me there were only four in the world and “two got destroyed in a fire” and that “they don’t know where the other one is” but I was a bit suspicious. My uncle - who knows soooo much about pianos - had never come across one either.
Yesterday I came across another one! It looked a little different colour wise and the badge was a different font. The sellers said it was from a cruise ship which is why it is a smaller, however said that they contacted Kawai and they had no record of it! It has a four number serial number inside that... keep reading on reddit ➡
Maybe it should be "Explain Like I'm a Drummer".
I hear singers and guitar players refer to "key changes" or "singing in the wrong key" and I've never understood how all that stuff works. I know theres notes/chords, I sort of understand scales, but I'm just a drummer. Enlighten me please!
I had an EBS Octabass years ago but lost it. I like the idea of the sub n up. Any thoughts on those? Or should I go Whammy instead?
I play mostly rock (My Morning Jacket style) live, but record mainly synthy spacy Flaming Lips style tunes.
Current setup is: Comp>Fuzz>Overdrive>Synth>Delay>Preamp
Anybody have any experience with them. I've watched a ton of youtube videos of flattops and archtops made by some reputable makers (pono and northfield mostly, but some other hobbyiest luthiers also) but since I don't really have a way to try one out before I make the plunge to buy one does anybody have experience with them? Or know's of an online shop that'll let you try it out before you buy it? Over a 1k usd is a lot to shell out for something you haven't touched before..
so i was on tiktok and a video came across my for you page where this person was singing a more chilling, folk type song - i'm usually really into that but there were certain notes they hit (higher pitched, maybe a sharp C6 or around that octave, i'm not the best at identifying notes) that just threw me into a complete panic attack - not the type where i'm like "oh i'm a little nervous, weird" it was full on "i feel like i'm in danger, i don't understand why this feels so bad"
for additional context, i don't have any stims that i'm really aware of (nothing has really effected me at all in a way like this before) - i do have anxiety and depression though so i'm not sure if that's effect it or not.
does anyone else have certain octaves or notes that physically effect you like that?
I'm after a 5 octave (or bigger) MIDI keyboard controller, I've been regularly disappointed with keyboard controllers and fancied getting something that could make some noise by itself so I can jump on and play without firing up other gear so I thought I'd look into getting an older synth that has a nice keyboard.
Any tips for older bargains that are usually reliable and have nice keyboards? I'm not too fussy about the sounds, although always a bonus for something that sounds nice too :) I'm using it to control orchestral/piano/etc. samples via Kontakt, some Elektrons and a couple of Behringer analogue clones.
EDIT: Thanks for the tips everyone! In the end I picked up an AN1X. Cost £360 but I loved all of the arpeggio/split/MIDI routing options on it and especially how it sounds (it'll plug any gaps the other stuff leaves).
I just replaced my Akai MPK25 with the MPK225 and have discovered that my pitch wheel no longer covers a full octave up and down when using the Subtractor. Is there a way to program it to do so? It worked that way with the previous controller, but not this new one. If this isn't the best subreddit for this question, which ones should I try?
Thanks in advance.
Is it possible to change octaves on my 25 with a pedal?
hey y’all, i might have gone a little heavy on the low end, but i dunno
So if we are all one does that mean we are all experiencing everything and everyone’s lives at the same time but we have a veil?
After our soul merges and a next octave starts will us (as a soul) ever experience duality again will we not get a clean slate in the next octave?
I understand individuality is an illusion and that we are all one, but what if I like experiencing life(self awareness on Earth/ individual soul) and the progression throughout densities.
Hey guys, I finally conviced my saxophone player friend to do some technique.
I know that practising major scales in all keys is good for him.... but i´m not sure about the 2 octaves thing.
I’m trying to tune this thing, and the guide says GGDDAAEE? But is each individual string tuned to the same octave?
I always have to do this weird thing with my pinky finger and half the time it doesn’t work quite right. It’s especially difficult when slurring the notes, because I can’t switch fast enough without another sound coming out between the change. (It also doesn’t help I can’t move my pinky finger without also moving my ring finger, so when I do the “weird thing” I mention above, sometimes my ring finger lifts from a key that needs to be pressed.) Sorry if that made no sense.
This is how I learned my range. It's as far as I can go without it feeling forced. Is this range good or bad?
