#100DaysOfAbleton – Days 6 and 7

I took a long break from producing experiments.  My work and family life became really busy.  Yesterday at lunch I started working on a track using some sounds from Sounds.com.  I was going to try for something Hip Hop, but did have any vocals so I turned it into an EXPERIMENT.

Below you will find EXPERIMENTS – 05 OF 52.  This uses a sub-bass that reminds me of the lowered mini-trucks from the 1980s.  This is not a complete song but a snippit only 1m30s long.  Still, the goal is to produce 52 experiments and this fits the goal.

#100DaysOfAbleton Challenge

Starting something new is hard.  It takes patience and perseverance.  It takes dedication.  It takes a plan.

I want to learn how to create electronic music.  I want to learn how to make electronic music better.  I have made a few pieces.  I want to be better.  Deadmau5 and Daft Punk are two that come to mind.

Last week I saw a post from FreeCodeCamp.com about a talk that Eleftheria Batsou gave on her experience with #100DaysOfCode Challenge.  I tried doing a “100 days of drawing” challenge, and made it to Day 22.  I don’t remember why I stopped other than I remember feeling blocked creatively.

I want to be better at writing, building, creating, programming electronic music.  I thought about doing a #100DaysOfAbleton to learn Ableton Live 10 better and, at the same time, learn to write music better.

I have a playlist at SoundCloud.com already called “EXPERIMENTS ## of 52”.  The idea is that after creating 52 pieces of music I will be better at creating electronic music.

So…

Here I go.

TeamSpeak 3 – Disabling Channel On Join and On Disconnect Sounds

I recently started using TeamSpeak3 to connect with some other computer techs on the internet.  TeamSpeak is a voice chat system similar to what Skype does.  One feature that was making it hard for me to hear people was the On Join and On Disconnect sounds that would occur when someone joined or left the channel.  I did some testing and found the settings to disable them.

  1. Click Settings > Options
  2. Click Notifications on the left (Second from the bottom)
  3. Expand the Client option on the right.
  4. Expand Connection.
  5. Under Connection you will see CONNECTED and DISCONNECTED.  Uncheck “Current Channel…” in both sections.
  6. Click OK
