Hi, I'd like to add a few words.
When I first listen to your soundfile I was very disappointed (I said to
myself that this is an excess of intention or just a buggy soundfile), but
after reading the other mails I definitely think that this is something to
be criticized.

No offense, but here it goes:

You can not advertise something to be something that it isn't. I mean,
sorry, but did you even read the article about tech house on
Wikipediaor the Ishkur's
guide to electronic music sound
examples on tech house. And you can not say that this file is just
"unprocessed", I mean if you look at the waveform and listen to the sound
there's obviously something wrong with it, a codec problem or just a bad
recording.
My belief is, although experimenting with linux audio can be a very
consistent and creative result, this doesn't mean that you can easily get a
piece of music or even a piece of noise and show it to anyone. I love noise=
,
drones and experimental sound, but also in this case the redundancy its
something hard to avoid and an art to achieve.

Patrick, you should be honest about your soundfile and you should try to be
more careful and respectful when you want a feedback from the list.

That was on my mind...
I wish you all the best and a lot of fun with linux audio stuff

I have verified that what Will is hearing is what I am presenting.

To be honest I am insulted.

Not because of your comment that the track was experimental. Coming from
you that is kind of a compliment.

But because of your lack of feedback on what I might do to clean up the
sound to make it more palatable for a wider audience.

Anyway, I am resigned to this track not being received well and I will
have to do the required tweaks under my own direction.

At least it is not my favourite track in the session. Perhaps my next
track will get a better reception now that the ice has been broken.

BTW, I'm not looking for approval. That will be a nice addition if it
happens. I'm seeking a purely technical discussion of what can be done<=

to clean up the sound for a wider range of audio systems.

Cheers.
