  • Stealing good, original content from reddit is fine I'd say. Re-posting someone else's repost, less so.

    Presumably many people are here in part because they got tired of the karma farming repost bots. We COULD go through every subreddit, sort by top all time, and copy the best posts verbatim (like the bots on reddit do)... but if repetitive content was what we were after, wouldn't it just make more sense to go on reddit at that point?

  • Choosing Next OS
  • I've used a few distros part-time over the years (ubuntu, fedora, mint, arch, pop), and can say that assuming you don't need the latest version of all programs, NixOS is my favourite. It's so easy to test things out and then undo them, it's great!

  • Youtube Rant from a paying customer
  • I pay also, and use revanced. I watch YouTube more than any other service, and want to support some of the creators I like.

    I would feel a lot less self hatred for paying google if they released a YouTube 'Lite' app that dropped everything related to shorts. Paying users should be able to use the app however they want, without having extra features rammed down their throats.

  • Xbox’s Shift To ‘High-Impact’ Games Is Misguided At Best, Reckless At Worst
  • Why would you choose now of all times to double down on Bethesda??

    Why not do something useful with Starcraft, Warcraft, or an Activision property like Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk? Bethesda has been proving for the last 8 years that they can't keep up.

  • Advice on finding a partner?
  • It took me like 5 years of heavy app use to finally meet my wife. I met a few nice people in that time, but the process was honestly extremely depressing and difficult.

    I hate dating app culture... but I also have some social anxiety which makes meeting anyone organically virtually impossible.

  • What is the most horrifying thing you've seen on the internet that didn't involve gore?
  • For me it has to be an audio recording some old guy made of him hiding in his basement to confront two neighborhood teenagers who kept sneaking into his house. He shoots the guy first, then if i remember correctly the girl was in shock and said something like "you shot him" and then the old guy was like "you're fucking dead removed" and executed her.

    Then he proceeded to leave the bodies in his basement over the weekend, then went to the cops to report the attempted robbery. Upon presenting his evidence, he was arrested.

    Any dashboard alternatives for Xbox?

    The new dashboard UI has by far the worst UX I have seen in a gaming product - they removed the ability to customize anything, instead opting to turn the whole home page into an extension of the store. You can no longer have it only show things you own, nevermind things you're interested in.

    With this in mind, is there any way to load a different dashboard onto the system using dev mode? I'm seriously considering selling my Xbox and buying a ps5 at this point... I am also morally content pirating every game Microsoft makes from now until I die.

    Just downloaded a 200kb Session APK from Neo Store

    It came as an update, and I installed it without thinking. I did see the size before launching thankfully and uninstalled - how screwed am I?

    Is Termux still the best terminal emulator for Android?

    I've seen a few other terminal emulators floating around different app stores - has anyone tried these, and found that they were actually better than Termux?

    Would love to check out any recommendations!

    Paid Sample Libraries

    As mentioned above, you don't really need to buy any additional samples. However, if you want some premade drum sounds or need to acquire licensed samples for a project, here are some options.

    Recommended Paid Plugins

    I'd advise watching videos / researching anything you are thinking about buying, as it is likely that there is something similar that is free.

    Note: Many companies consistently go on sale for 50% off or more (iZotope). I'd advise making a list of plugins you want and waiting for a sale - some sites also offer educational discounts. Try asking!

    Also, if you buy Waves plugins, you are probably going to will regret it.

    Paid Ableton Classes / Tutors

    Some people swear by finding a tutor you like, and paying for a pre-recorded course or lessons. These can get very expensive (see Berklee classes), but if you find one that seems like a good fit for you, it might be worth it.

    Paid Music Theory Books / Websites

    These are good... allegedly. Presumably also dated.

    Sample Players / Plugin Hosts

    Recommended free sample players and plugin hosts. Some of these are needed to play the sample libraries listed below.

    • Decent Samples - Decent Sampler - Plugin to play Decent Samples libraries.
    • Native Instruments - Komplete Start - Bundle of free plugins. Contains Kontakt Player and Reaktor Player, which are needed to play some free libraries and instruments. Also contains Komplete Kontrol, which is a plugin host that allows browsing / loading presets from NKS compatible plugins. Bundle contents can be installed individually.
    • Plogue - Sforzando - Free player to play SFZ and SoundFont libraries.

    Sample Libraries

    Most of the samples you need can likely be recorded yourself, or are already available in Live.

    Maintaining a large sample library can take a lot of work, so I would recommend only downloading samples you know you will use. I would also recommend organizing your samples into folders by type (e.g. kicks, snares, hats, etc.).

    When using samples that aren't included in Live, using the 'Collect All and Save' feature is generally a good idea so you don't misplace project files.

    You should always check the license of any sample library you use in your productions. Some of the libraries listed below may not be licensed for commercial use. If you are unsure, contact the creator of the library.

    Plugin / Live Device Sources

    You don't need to buy plugins to make good music - the stock plugins in Live are more than enough. If you get into plugins, you might develop a problem, spend tons of money, and spend all your time managing files. But if you want to get plugins, here are some places to look. Note - M4L devices require Live Suite.

    • Audio Plugins For Free - Site that hosts free plugins.
    • Fabrizio Poce - Developer of Ableton Live devices.
    • iZotope - Developer of audio plugins, highly regarded for mastering and audio cleanup. Will be absorbed into Native Instruments in the near future.
    • Kilohearts Essentials - Awesome developer of audio plugins. All free effects can be incorporated into paid Kiloherts plugins, or used individually.
    • KVR Audio - Hosts a large database of plugins.
    • MeldaProduction - Developer of audio plugins. MFreeFXBundle is a large bundle of high quality plugins.
    • Native Instruments - Developer / purchaser of plugins - recommend downloading Komplete Start listed above. Has a free section. Big music.
    • Plogue - Great developer of audio plugins. Developers of Sforzando (listed above), as well as several accurate reproductions of classic synthesizer, vocoder, and console audio chips.
    • Plugin Boutique - Massive plugin store / developer of Scaler. Has a free section.
    • ReaPlugs - Stock Reaper DAW plugins.
    • Spitfire Audio - Developer of high quality orchestral instruments. Has a free section.
    • Splice Plugins - Plugin and sample store / host of Rent-to-Own plugins. Has a free section.
    • Tokyo Dawn Labs - Developer of audio plugins, some of which are free.
    • Valhalla DSP - Developer of audio plugins - some are free.

    Recommended Plugins / Live M4L Devices

    Always ensure compatibility with your DAW and operating system version before purchasing plugins. M4L devices require Live Suite - some require version 11.

    Plugins in the right folder but aren't appearing in Live?

    • If this happens to you, try clicking the Rescan VST folder button holding down shift. This will force Live to rescan all plugins in the folder.

    Ableton User Group Resource Thread - Part 1 - Introduction

    Ableton User Group Resource Thread - Part 1 - Introduction

    This is a collection of resources for Ableton Live / Push / what have you. Based on learning resource threads on Reddit - but in the spirit of Lemmy, focused on free resources. (Yes, I realize Ableton Live isn't free, but the resources can be! 🙂) There will be a section of recommended paid resources at the end should you want to spend money.

    When I started this list, I was planning on more or less doing a copy / paste from the Reddit version - however, I ended up doing a bit of a rework... it took longer than I'd care to admit.

    Please let me know if you'd like to recommend any updates - maybe I missed something, or maybe I've accidentally included someone who has done something terrible (or is just a bad teacher).

    There is an edit button, so I'm open to suggestions.

    Hopefully this is helpful to someone!
