#256794 Seeking tips for beginner @ 7 string

Posted by firekorn on 23 June 2017 - 10:16 AM

@QOTSANINSOADKORN Korn tuning is just a standard 7 string tune down by a full step so like a D std for guitar but with a low A added. There's no drop at all in korn tuning, it's just lower than standard.

#255921 When?

@Tmlt it was on Saturday 10th of june (which is when the banner indicated today iirc) i'll ask to have it changed back.

#255553 Customs songs freezes directly after tuning.

@dantheguy if you don't have any d3dx9_42.dll then skip on to the next step. This was meant for users that either had an outdated dll or one with an incorrect name.

Yeah ODLC uses simple phrase naming with only alphanumeric characters (and i understand why when you actually create DD as it's very easy to be confused if the name aren't clear) and DDC do the same thing.

#254549 CDLC Inventory Mass Redownload?

Posted by firekorn on 27 May 2017 - 03:42 PM

@Xellot nop


I mean we know some people wants to be able to have a way to redownload a lot of songs at once but the fact every song aren't hosted by CF makes this a lot more complicated because we don't handle any file, just link...


As for donating perk, no there's nothing. You get the same experience as everyone else no matter what

@SkullRock Well suicide will hit you like that and even his whole family and band were shocked to learn this from what i gathered, it was indeed very unexpected.

#253563 learning by ear (warning: multiple Q's)

Posted by firekorn on 14 May 2017 - 01:35 PM

@Noteory First to actually figure out what scale is used, one note will never be enough as one single note fit into literally every scale that exist. Scales are layout and to figure out the layout you need more than a single point, the more point the more accurate your guess can be but keep in mind that scales can change over the course of a single song so it's not a definite answer at all.


In regards to tuning, well if you can't hit the lowest note played in the song with your actual tuning, then yeah it's probably tuned lower (though not always if he use some pitch shifting effect) but figuring out tuning exactly is impossible without video of the player actually playing the song to actually have proper idea of how each string relate to each other.



as i'm still learning how to tune E standard by ear and failing hard

Well you can't actually tune to E std by hear if you don't have any reference unles you have the golden ear (spoiler : you doesn't). All you can do is tune all string to with what is define as the standard in relation to each but if the string you used as a reference is off, all the others will be off by the same amount anyway and tuning by ear is hard and won't bring you much. Being able to recognize that it's off is the most important thing, then a tuner will be way better than 99% of the player.


I think the important thing is to recognize mismatch between what you play and what is being played, it's easier to ear that you are off than to ear that you are exactly spot on.


Also start by doing transcription of tab with video of people clearly playing the song, it makes it way easier to associate note/chord sound when you actually see what is being played and it allow to fine tune your ear in a less painful way.

It's unlikely this was the cause of the cable demise at all.

#252998 Recommended CDLC & CDLC Packs?

Posted by firekorn on 07 May 2017 - 08:12 AM

@StereotypicalCat Rare are the good charters because it takes times (there's a reason there's a lot of people doing that job full time at Ubisoft SF to put out 3 to 5 DLC every week). i won't go into making a list of them as i don't have any clue of the quality of what some user put out but with time you'll probably find some name you can easily follow.


As for the pack, it won't happen as it leads to many more issue that we can't deal with properly which would put Customsforge in a bad position in regards to Ubisoft. It's not that we don't want to offer such an option, we simply can't right now.
