From a t-shirt and jeans with a stencil type design to full stage costumes, masks, and wigs with branded graphics, here’s why your band’s visuals matter.
Drumming and loud sound are such large parts of Puerto Rican culture, it only makes sense they’d be the focal point of this week’s protests. Take a listen!

Is one waveform going up when the other is going down? Then that’s probably the culprit. Modern DAWs and plugin manufacturers have numerous solutions to “nudge” tracks in either direction, so experiment with what you have.
“God’s Plan”: Man, the chords in this loop were hard to identify. Not only because the notes here don’t conform to standard A-440 tuning (it’s all about 20 cents sharp of G major), but because they start out as ninth chords whose upper halves are louder and more timbre-distinct than their lower, arpeggio-happy halves. It’s almost like it’s better explained not as “9-chords,” but as “an Em stacked on top of an Am,” and then “a D chord stacked on a G chord.” This “separation” thinking is enhanced by the low-muffled organ patch playing the Am and G, and the more trebly organ patch playing the Em and D.
Soundfly partners with leading edge music education sites and services to bring you unique tips, tools, and stories to empower and inspire our community to find their sound.
Dub music producers like King Tubby and Lee “Scratch” Perry played the Space Echo almost as if it were its own instrument. On Augustus Pablo’s song “555 Dub Street,” Lee Perry uses the Space Echo on the melodica and turns what most consider a harsh, uninviting instrument into something lush and layered.
Therefore, in addition to providing a platform designed to operate around your own schedule, no matter your location, we’ve structured this program around six core elements that we think contribute to an effective learning experience that is both active and highly personalized:

The Space Echo is a tape delay pedal with a spring reverb plate built into it. Roland had made other tape delay machines before the RE-201, but adding the reverb plate colored the sound in a unique way. The way it combined both effects was fairly unique at the time, and artistically done, but now that’s fairly common across different guitar pedals, plugins, and outboard delay boxes.
Before we move deeper into our analysis of this track, take another good look at the image above. Those are all the diatonic triads built on top of the scale tones of E♭ major. If this is new to you, I strongly suggest playing these chords on your chosen instrument. See if you can hear the relationship between each chord.
For chip enthusiasts, Lewis’ campaign offers a great way to get involved and support a community that’s so dependent on DIY, grassroots support. Every one of his rewards (including Game Boys!) is affordable, making this campaign easily shareable and not easy to resist.
