The Quick Question Thread

Recommended Posts

Who wrote all the Irish-ish music for Titanic? Is Horner responsible for the party music and Lovejoy chase, or was the former also composed by Gaelic Storm? And what about things like Lament and Jack Dawson's Good Luck? For some reason, they're labelled as (Traditional) in my albums, so I'm guessing it's not Horner.

Grossest is the misuse of the word autistic

It's a fairly popular insult that gross neckbeards use on 4chan and the internet at large.  And if you think that's bad, just wait until you see what the same people did to the word "cringe"!

Hey musicians, could someone tell me the time signature(s) this track uses? 

 

(not meant to play at time marker, just play from the beginning)

 

 

(Here's another version in case it's easier to sus out)

 

 I've read 3/8 or 7/8 put out there, but I'm not getting a grip on the count. I think I might also be overcomplicating it, though.

Is there a way to use the "multi-quote" function to put quotes in a signature? I've been trying to figure out how to paste quotes into my signature for awhile, and nothing has seemed to work.

A brief tutorial on how to do that would be greatly appreciated.

 

Click the button in the edit bar that says "Source"

 

A quote goes from "<blockquote..." to </blockquote>.  Just copy those tags and everything between them.  Then in the signature edit box click 'Source' and paste.

Oh I'm totally dumb, you don't need to use HTML mode at all, they fixed quoting in the latest version. You can now just click the header of any quote and then click the scissor icon to cut it, then long-press paste to paste it somewhere else ( for some reason the paste icon doesn't paste quotes)

Can someone remind me if there's a particular reason why the POA sessions haven't leaked even though all the other Potters have by now? Feel like whenever this comes up it's generally agreed that a leak is pretty unlikely, but can't remember if it's because of something specific with POA or if it's just that too much time has passed.

Tech question.

 

I recently picked up some online music* in FLAC format. It's a multi "disc" release, but the tags were all over the place, so I had to copy/paste them between the different files for consistency. Among other things, I copied the composer's name, "Matt Gray", from the original tags to every file's artist, composer and album artist tags.

 

Now the files don't show up under "M" in my artist list, but rather under "G" - though still listed as "Matt Gray".

 

What could cause this? Is there some special kind of space character that designates remaining string to the part to use for sorting? I actually find this ideal, but not if "Matt Gray" is the only artist to be sorted by his last name - everyone else is still sorted by their first name. I'd like to tag all my other tracks in a similar fashion.

 

(I'm using musicpd as my collection manager/Cantata as my player software, but this seems to be more related to the tagging than the actual software)

 

*) This Kickstarter album. Cool modern (though still faithful) mixes of some SID classics.

Is there a (hidden?) Tag field called artist sort? or a separate window for sorting (like with iTunes)

What do you think of the spotting of Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver ending (music by Bernard Herrmann)?

 

 

 

It is interesting isn't it?  No music at all until the cops enter the room.  It gives the final ironic gesture (the finger gun) a poetic quality after the harsh sound effects driven realism of the violence.

@The Doctor You've mentioned a few times about how much you love the last 40 minutes or so of the Revenge of the Sith music, the action climax...could you give me a list of the tracks you're referring to? (Is there a common set of names that people who make fan versions use?) I'm not too familiar with what's beyond the OST, and I'd like to hear what you're talking about. :)
