    Not sure if you're familiar with trackers. They allow you to have a lot of control per tick. The DATA section controls a filter effect and a send effect with a dub delay on it (superb OuterSpace echo VST).

    I started with a simple beat repeated, then just went through the song adding bits, moving bits, getting carried away. It depends how much patience you have really. When I am in the flow it happens pretty quickly.

    https://streak.club/p/34387/loading-by-vim My tune is a manic drill-n-bass type deal made with Renoise. I couldn't do something like this in Ableton Live, not without some serous headaches. Trackers are so much better suited to this kind of micro-editing.

    Yeah that's crisp.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    I'd have paid good money to remove the baseball bat guys from the game entirely. Then I might just have been able to do all that.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    Spelunky - I'd seen people breezing through it and having a great time. Yet I have only ever got past the initial cave stages once despite watching loads of playthroughs and trying all the tactics. More often than not it was a big fall or those bloody dart things that finished me off. A really fun game, superb music, slick control. But when it comes to fast and accurate I've just not got what it takes, clearly. A good case of never watch shit on Youtube because they make it look like a piece of cake.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    The Division - I really wanted to like this, great setting and plenty to do. The initial tutorial mission was really really hard, I attempted it multiple times and after a lot of effort managed to get through it. Should have stopped there but I was determined to get it. However once I'd unlocked the HQ and had to start on the missions to rescue people to staff it it just went to shit. Despite trying again and again and again I'd get ambushed, rushed, outgunned. It got to the point where it was no fun at all, just pure determination to not let this beat me. I still can't figure out of I was just crap at it or it was deliberately tough to force you into co-op play.

    https://streak.club/submission/34331 That's my one for this week. Bit of downtempo breaks.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    They had one other single that didn't get in the top 40. Just checked.

    I have my trusty Virgin Book Of British Hit Singles here and a lot of these so-called one-hit wonders are far from it. But that's just me being a twat.

    So how are people getting on with this? I really like it. There appears to be a good community on there. Hopefully they'll be really supportive as it gets harder later on. I'm going to upload my next track tomorrow most likely. I'll also be honest and say I've got the next couple of weeks' tracks ready or nearly ready. Just take then time to work on stuff when I have it rather than go "what am I doing this week". Going to try different types of production too, mix it up a bit.

    From good cyborgs gone bad to bad cyborgs gone ... bad Cyborg Cop 2 (1994) A cop who lost his partner in a raid is on the hunt for the perpetrator who was taken from prison and, unknown to him, turned into a killer cyborg. David Bradley is back as Jack Ryan (not that one) in the sequel to 1993's Cyborg Cop. He's still got the leather jacket on, and he's still out for justice, although to be honest the motivation gives way to excuses for action and fighting pretty quickly. Plenty of explosions, including cars and a an acceptable gas station blast, gun fights, and slo-mo diving about, only marred slightly by some poor plotting (they fail to establish where characters appear, for instance). Much like many films of this era it sticks to a formula, the plot is writ-large silly but taken seriously enough, there's plenty of action and it all comes together to make something very entertaining for those who are prepared to overlook the shortcomings of a lower budget. On a side note, I'm surprised we don't get films like this these days. It's sad to see how limp and boring a lot of straight-to-streaming action is. It seems to have forgotten how to have fun and enjoy the nonsense. It's a real shame this kind of vision appears to be lost as I'm finding these 90s STV action films to scratch that sweet spot of plenty of action, hackneyed-in-a-good-way plots and decent production values.

    T-Force (1994) It's 2007. When a group of cybernetic law enforcement droids go rogue it's down to a robot-hating cop and an android to stop them. No-nonsense straight-to-video action from PM Entertainment with everything you'd expect: explosions, gun fights, one-liners. This one takes several cues from The Terminator films, from props to a scene where the cyborgs shoot up a police station that was a pretty good take-off of the scene in the first Terminator. It's obvious from the get-go Jack Scalia's cyber-cynic cop will end up being best buddies with force-for-good robot Evan Lurie. In fact it's this joyful predictability, combined with plenty of explosive action, that makes this an enjoyable watch.

    If you upload to the site as MP3 it adds a player to the page.
