Weather Report Percussive Sound!!!

Post by Phat Conducter » Fri Jul 17, 2015 6:05 pm

How do you get that crazy percussive sound in the first 5 seconds of Manolete by Weather Report? I thought I had a similar effect automating a ring mod but I forget what I did.

I’m suspicious of your name. Are you a Chinese knockoff? :|

I didn't mean to have this name hahaa. I think when I made the account I was looking through ill.gates posts and somehow put his name in. Trust me I tried changing it. Oh well

Running around with the name of someone more known than you is not only quite douchy it's also called impersonation.

Is that really how you want to start out?

Dylan uses "The Phat Conductor" here.

So?!

I mean as an artist one should understand that artist names are like brands.

Should Dylan have tried to make unused accounts for all variations of the name?

I could understand, if the guy didn't know better, it's not such an unusual name to come up with, but he admitted himself that it was ill.gates that got him the idea. And he decided to go thru with it anyways...

Ah Tom, good to have you back. Haven't had to read a proper rant in a few weeks.

I was just letting people know what the real Phat Condutor's user name was to help clear up any confusion.

i dunno, i mean... he's got like 4 posts... just think of all the lost data and confusion among other people he's made relationships with here since Mar 22nd.

he should totally stick with using part of a Live guru's name while simultaneously creating "how can i sound more like these guys" threads. :roll:




stfu Tom.
