ive finally done it
i've finally created the
ULTIMATE DX7 SOUND ?????
mastodon.social/media/0FaMM9ed

the thing about this is that if you just hold it down for even longer than this video, it goes to "complete white noise" and then eventually it just goes back to a '''nice''' sound again. but it takes like 2 and a half minutes

@body i can die happy now i have managed to express the feeling of our time

It is claimed Ernest Hemingway once wrote a six-word short story that could make people cry for a bet. The wager was ten dollars, which Hemingway won with the following: Show more

@jk the video won't play, which in some ways, is correct

@jk I could just listen to a whole song of this type of thing on repeat

@jk you have some awesome DX7 sounds on here besides that

@jk oh cool - I just recently got a DX7 and haven't made it past the 101 brick wall learning curve yet (bound to happen tho)

@heyexit oool! from my experience you've just gotta block off a few hours and sit in front of it and get an idea of what does what, really. just kinda decompose the various sounds you want to put together and think about how to get to them? the "mute/unmute operators 1-6" buttons are your friend!!

@jk ah, good to know! it's funny to pore over the manual and "FM Synthesis Made Easy!" books from the 80s with their like, staggering verbosity

@heyexit haha yeah, it's something i think you can only get a good feel for in practice rather than reading the theory (which is usually pretty poorly explained by most books!) e.g. by starting at the simplest possible sounds (e.g. only using two operators in series) and seeing all the various things you can do with it, and then when that gets too limiting you end up adding more stuff, and the complexity kinda builds naturally

@jk this gave me déjà vu, ASMR, and a concussion
10/10

@jk jam damnit i boosted that one back in th day I had to do the ol unboostboost-boost

@jk This is the sound that plays every time I connect to "the net"

@jk Do you edit these directly on the keyboard or have you dug up the old MAX patches, etc that can be used to program these things?

@jk brb uploading this to the SCP wiki as a EUCLID classification entity that traps its victims forever making this ultimate sound.
