    Please tell me I'm not the only one. My ear must have gotten more sensative to the lower notes since I've started playing bass and most repeatative beats drive me crazy!

    I want to break my own eardrums at the moment, the neighbours are blasting techno from their backyard and all I can hear is the boring monotonous beat..

    How can people listen to this and call it music?

    My mom is blasting techno. I can appreciate it for a while, but the "BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM" gets REALLY tiresome after a while.

    Oh well, I'm going to go play with my metronome.

    It's not a bass, it's a kickdrum.

    It's electronic, but sounds closer to something a bass would make.

    It's the fortuneteller whispering "Buy stock in hearing aid companies now. You'll make a killing when the kaboom boom babies grow up half deaf."...:D

    It does get lame but if you can tie your PC to your bass rig, fire back with this stuff:

    Probably get to 'em with a few ACME cabinets aimed correctly...:hyper:

    To much punch to be a bass guitar. It sounds like a kick drum that's tuned to a note.

    I think it helps them to stay focused.


    no really, techno is for the club , after an afternoon of drinking and bullpoopieting, not for the house, stupid people
  9. it's a kick drum from a tr808 drum machine. it's got a long decay & can sound like a note.

    "techo" doesn't usually have bass in it.

    other electronica often does, but techno per say rarely does
  10. DI FM is awesome.

    I love the dark stuff on their ambient channel - lotsa Aphex Twin in there, and some really beautiful stuff too, like Brian Eno, and Stars of the Lid..
