"I'm going to use ambient 9 cause that's 3x3"
made me giggle.

edit: the track at the end is pretty funny as well and actually quite chilled.

Re: IDM tutorial

thank you. I now have to go change my underwear from laughing too hard.

mind you ... slightly scary just how easy it is to come up with a fake idm pastiche. makes you wonder why it takes Boards of Canada quite so long to come up with their albums

Re: IDM tutorial

I dislike these videos a lot, he doesn't really research any actual information, giving false info about them. The outcome of the tracks are always wrong and are nothing like the genres.

While he makes fun of the genres for entertainment, he could introduce some good examples that could change people's minds from hating the genres to maybe there's something to them, but he doesn't.

I mean he could introduce people to new genres with this, but he makes sure it doesn't happen.

Re: IDM tutorial

So the tutorial bit had some very usable techniques but the song was weak. Randomly generated video was very random but cool to know that exists as a thing! The humour seemed to be trying a bit hard to be Honey Badger esque but still kinda amusing for the first minute or two. Basically the joke is it's called "intelligent" but that's pretentious and who gets to say what intelligence is? Never heard anyone mention that about the name "IDM" before
