Hi friends, I'm inscript. I'm a theorist and writer. My background is in the history of digital audio and critical theory. I'm interested in philosophy, electronic music, and programming language theory. Glad to be here.
One of the things that strikes me is how popular buy-in production communities have become (Kenny Beats, Timbo, Mr. Bill, etc.), through some combination of Twitch, Patreon, etc.. It's a little sad that that sector of the industry has become so heavily monetized in that regard. Successful producers now live stream a sort of royal court for track feedback. That's just not it. Don't pay people to listen to your work. Don't be the customer.
"Taco Bell Cashier Signs to Deaf Customer, Goes Viral" (among others) would be a fun (but pointless) grounds for a capitalist realist critique => the only spaces which we allow for altruism are in the interstitial moments that come about as a side-effect of the transaction, and only surface to mass media unless those moments can be forced back on the public like some parable of good. etc. etc.
Reaper (or DAWs in general):
'split items at time selection' and 'set time selection to items' (or their equivalents) have completely changed the way I edit. lets me use one item as a "splicing block" and a timescale for all other items. timing becomes contextual without tempo markers. actions can be run over time selections as opposed to items/tracks.
I've been feeling like I need a better way of tracking very small bits of (post-it worthy) information that would be useful to have around when completing tasks but don't require their own tracking system. Having trouble deciding between a notes field for each task, or notes as a sibling type to tasks. The former would make it easy to navigate, but would be blank for 90% of tasks. The latter would associate a bunch of tidbits with tasks in a similar project, but may get lost in the weeds.
