"so whats the deal guitars? its almost like I am not on a gaming site!"
Communities are about talking with each other, possibly finding people with common interests. Our main common interest is click games, yes, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about anything and everything.
"much better sounds can be archieved with digital techniques than with guitars anyway"
WHAT! Hahahahahahahaha that is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard! You can NOT get a good guitar sound on the computer, it's too complex for that, and if you have the sound it sounds boring because it doesn't sound human. And this is coming from someone with a very sharp musical hearing.
when a guitar string vibrates, it creates a standing wave.
This wave oscillates at different frequencies simultaneously, many of which we cannot hear or see.
It is highly unlikely that a computer can emulate this successfully, as the sound of a guitar is unique (because of the number of different frequencies). Good look getting a computer to emulate that perfectly.
yeah you guys make lots of sense now guitars are better cuz it makes sounds you cant hear? LOL and how can a guitar ever sound HUMAN?!?!
so what about RECORDING a guitar and adding effects and using it digitally like a keyboard? sounds alot better and has alot of more options like organs and techno shit and weird sounds.
The standing wave is a contradiction. Yes a standing wave is produced, and the different harmonics cause the variance in sound. You can hear those other frequencies, or at least the first harmonic, and when playing a guitar you can even stop the fundamental frequency and just get left with the harmonic. The contradiction is where something can only be perfectly emulated if there is something perfect to emulate. The harmonic idea contradicts the idea of a perfect sound. The sound of a guitar varies, so there is no specific thing you are trying to emulate or recreate. A looped sound of a guitar is often discredited because it sounds the same every time, where you would get variation in sound with a real guitar. If you can generate a sound of a guitar with a number of frequencies involved, you have in essence emulated a guitar perfectly. Maybe the idea of perfect is where the harmonics will change, varying on the material of the strings or the angle and position you pluck them...
Sheesh. I despair that some folk still think PeterD is a totally real account. Ah well.
My whole family just went on holiday for 10 days. I've brought the acoustic down... wonderful sound too. really different to any other acoustic I've heard. probably a bad thing though as by all accounts it's a pretty cheap one. Gonna steal my brothers amp later. he's a bloody mint guitarist so has all the proper electric gear. Still prefare a good ol' regular piano though.
