I’m just in the process of writing some easy listening/ambient background music for websites.The music is based around two motifs,I suppose you could say like a verse and a chorus.The main motifs are repeated,but variation is brought into the track by subtle evolving background pads,the introduction of bass and percussion and subtle lead flute/pad sounds. Now,I can just produce this as a track that has subtle variations and slowly evolves,but I also had the idea of breaking the track down and making a sound pack from it,so,I would produce seperate tracks of the subtley different parts,the user could then assign differnt parts of audio to different pages of a website adding more interest as the sound builds,and adding slightly different mood to each part. I could also inclde single tracks,ie bassline,percussion,pads,lead etc,so that you can experiment with it and build up a track to your own specifications ie,loop parts of it,fade parts in.Of course this assumes that you would be bothered to do this,so the question is: If you were looking for some music for a website,would this idea be useful to you,or would you be more likely to purchase it as just one full track? Your feedback is appreciated.Thanks in advance, Andy
I’ve never really bonded with FL,but I’ve got to admit,it looks pretty cool,I’m giving this a try,just downloading the demo now.I must be missing something here-it just seems really illogical,how do you make music with this-there are not many clues!
I know I’ve asked something similar before,but what kind of audio is most useful to you? Whatever you are looking for,I can do it,original or pastiche,whatever,let me know and I’ll upload something.Don’t be shy of contacting me. I have trained in writing music for the media,I’m an accomplished guitar and bass player as well as having experience in various percussion and string instruments and computer music production in most genres,including-dance,electronica,d’n’b,metal,prog,jazz,blues,rock,punk,goth,folk,world,orchestral.
So come on,give me a whirl!!!

Is there a program (if possible free) with which I can select some frames of a video (mpeg or flv) and save them as JPG ? Tks
Photoshop,or Photoshop elements can import frames from video,it is good actually as you can move through the video grabbing frames and put these on different layers to make an animated gif-good for making animated avatars and the like.
Hehehe,yes I can understand how that would be annoying!
Excellent idea,I think I will have a crack at this!apart from the great prizes it will benefit us all….....would be great if people donated some code snippets!!!......would people do that,or am I being naive?
Well,I must confess that I was once guilty of putting an avatar up which was about 5 mb,but purely by accident as I put the uncompressed version up by mistake ,lol.But personally I like to see animated gifs and the like if they look good.
Yes,indeed,it is just interesting:who defines how much of that is acceptable?
