Which FSOL track am I thinking of?

Post by Jack Absorb. » Tue Nov 18, 2014 2:11 pm

Should be an easy one. Skip to 1.09. I'm certain this is an FSOL sample but I can't recall from the top of my head which track it comes from. Half of me thinks it's Lifeforms era (so I:Cube sampled them), the other half thinks it's Environments era (so they sampled I:Cube). Pretty cool track either way, and the whole Picnic Attack album is very good actually.

At 0:43 - Same notes but different instrument. Guessing maybe a coincidence ?

Was going to say it's very much like Flak - I believe that itself is a sample from a track by Paul Williams & Andrew Grossart though.

Perhaps it's a tribute? Some of the sampling on the I:Cube track sounds very Environments-y, which is out of character with the rest of the album (more French house and Detroit-y stuff).

The original material is sourced from here I think:

album: Atmospheric - Elements/Weather, 1986

about 0:16


about 1:01

sounds like the same exact sample to me (the fsol and i:cube track)


that particular sound i'm not hearing in the thomson/nightingale links......but no doubt i'm hearing other elements of flak


awesome stuff :)

If I'm not mistaken, the two note phrase is actually two notes cut from Shining Ice (as opposed to the main melody which is sampled straight-up - hence the writing credit in the sleeve!)

How do you use the Youtube tags on this forum, out of interest? I tried pasting the URL between them with no joy. Does it have to be the full embed code?

If you hover over each tag in the Full Editor mode I've written a little help description for each one. For youtube it's just the string of letters and numbers that follows the 'v=' bit of the url. So for example if the full URL is:

Code: Select all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uur0g9Hb5wI
you grab this bit:

Code: Select all

Uur0g9Hb5wI
and put it between the youtube tags, ie.

Code: Select all

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uur0g9Hb5wI
Resulting in:

Is there a possibility of a WATMM-style system of automatically embedding YouTube and Soundcloud links in the future?

Possibly, I'll see if I can work it out one day. May require a hefty bit of gubbins to do though (think it's something like regex where it scans the url for certain keywords) - if the board catches on fire then you know I tried something and it ended badly.

While we're in the enhancing-the-board section:

- why do I always have to click on the topic and scroll and scroll until I find the red paper (pictured below) that indicates an un-read post. It's small and annoying not user-friendly.
Image

- I'm sure there's an option (like on most boards I've been) - to have some sort of marker next to each topic with new posts for my user. Like the red arrow pictured below - if I click it takes me directly on the post that are un-read by my user.

-- I know there's a 'view unread posts' button, but it just mixes topics, and I don't like it...

If I wasn't clear, here's a working example,

you see the blue arrow on the picture here:

when I click it - it takes me directly on the picture below, and the post framed in white (and the ones after it) are unread by my user.

That should be doable - just need to add some 'last unread post' code to the topic link text and it should do it's thing. Off to bed though now as 'tis after midnight ...
