>>
The fuck is power level determined by? Thanks for not clarifying the rating system you fucking autist. All you did was brag about how cool a fucking saxophone is. It isn't by the way. You probably think it is because you played it in marching band with the other social rejects in highschool. You probably were inspired to play it because of all the cock you blew. "Hell, if I can blow cock this good, surely I can play the saxaphone!"
Fuck off.

>>53033820
Non-musicians believe this.

Fuck off, poptimist scum, go jack off to the same 5 post-bop albums.

Something doesn't add up.
>>
>>53034621
Personally, I picked just one to really get good, and then to play with others who also excel at their instrument. But you do your own thing.
>>
>>53034982
but if you use samples of other instruments, how do you count that as better?
I mean any band, or combination of instruments, is better than a single instrument.
>>
>>53033820
French horn is objectively the best instrument
>>
>>53039060
see >>53034960
>>
im biased towards organ and pedal hapsicord so im not including those

the rest:
god-tiet: trumpet, drums, bass
really good tier: piano, clarinet
okay tier: sax, most other brass, cello, guitars, harph, xylophones and metalophones
bad: other strings, lap irons etc. gong, most percussion
shit: fucking violin i cant stand that shit. piccolo
>>
>>53034294
its well known that acoustic instruments have richer sounds, and more variety of timbre and color.

synths can do a lot, and can even sound like acoustic instruments. but they can never capture the nuances of a real performer playing a real acoustic instrument.

also there are acoustic instruments that sound like synths:

How about a list of the most overrated instruments?

1. human voice
2. guitar
3. drums
4. analog synthesizer
5. saxophone

>>53040112
>voice
>overrated

>>53040200
thats a piano.

lets see it sing a sustained note as beautifully as a real singer.
>>
>>53040214
>thats a piano.
Hence the human voice is overrated.
>>
>>53040223
your evidence does not support your claim.

it cant even do speech properly, let alone sing. and it requires careful programming and months of work to recite those simple sentences.
>>
>>53040237
It shows that it's capable of imitating the human voice to a certain degree. Can the human voice imitate any instrument?
>>
>>53040259
trumpet, drums, theremin, and a few more, all far more successfully than your computer controller piano, and with far less work.

look at bjork's medulla. its all human voice, no other instruments. beatbox, innuit choir, mike pattons weird noises, etc.

i dont want to put human voice on a pedestal, but its pretty capable. can do anything from harsh noise to soft beauty. it can also sing lyrics, more than you can say of 99% of all other instuments
>>
>>53040200
>>53040337
confirmation that electronics are the superior(est) instrument
>>
I will tell you something.

Imagine you have to say what kind of instruments you like. You can say something like this:

"To me music must have at least vocals or trombone or trumpet or sax or violin or piano or (oboe, basson) or (flute, accordion, harmonica)."
PS: when some instrument is inside ( ) this means the track must have all things inside the
( ) to the guy maybe like.

Anyway to some, human vocals, is not only needed to make someone maybe like an track, but there will no choice without vocals.
This means that not only an vocal is better than an piano, cello or trumpet, but is better than all 3 together.

This means vocal is not only an very good instrumenbt but is super mega ultra fucking extremely good according to those guys.
