For the newest song, I used Debian by itself, since I’ve now gotten LMMS working great on Debian. I just wanted to copy and paste the post to show how great Debian really is, and that I’ve done something using NOTHING but Free / Open software
I sent a similar message to a FreeBSD mailing list since I did use FreeBSD as well as Linux for all of this music, but the newest song, I used Debian by itself, since I’ve now gotten LMMS working great on Debian. I just wanted to copy and paste the post to show how great Debian really is, and that I’ve done something using NOTHING but Free / Open software:
A few years ago, I started taking music a little more serious. Mostly because of things like Myspace Music, where anyone can make an account and upload music to it, and get their sound out there to others. I had been making music for a while, but since I don’t have the cash to drop on a studio, nor do I have the cash to even get one of those little things that lets you hook up a Bass guitar or Guitar at all to the computer, so I did what I could. Sometimes I’d record everything in 60 second intervals because Windows Record couldn’t do more than that, and then when I realized I could continue from there, I’d have to write music in a way where at 60 seconds, I could pick up where I left off without it being so noticeable which isn’t easy.
after I started using Linux and BSD and a few years had past, I found LMMS and LOVED it.
I now use LMMS for everything. I make ALL my music in it. And FreeBSD has it too.
So, everything I’m linking to that you can hear, was ALL done in either
FreeBSD, Debian Linux, or SUSE Linux, with LMMS.
I used LMMS on Linux and FreeBSD depending on which machine I was using at the time, to make all of that.
It started with just my laptop, so I didn’t have good speakers really hooked up to that so the bass wasn’t great at first since I could barely tell it was there, but after getting good speakers and good headphones, I started taking it a little more.
I named it “Digital Horror Punk” because my main influence has been Horror Movies and The Misfits, but since I can’t hook up a guitar, or my bass guitar to the computer, I had to make do with what I had. I think it’s pretty cool. And since Halloween just passed, I figured I’d make a post and show what I’ve been doing with this freely available to anyone software we all love.
– gore / Farmacy of Horror founder. I make ALL the music myself, and the only sampling is pointed out, and usually pretty easy to spot since the only things I sample are horror Movie clips and a few Misfits Songs and others here and there, which I give credit to whenever I use something.
