[NON - PROGRAMMING QUESTION]: I just ordered a laptop.

Specifications are: CPU: A8 7410 (I searched on benchmarks for it and it's not really good) RAM: DDR3 8GB HDD: 1TB GRAPHICS CARD: 2GB PRICE: 379€ (SALES) I think 450€ normaly I think for its price is a pretty good laptop. I bought it for coding and music production (probably I'll need to freeze all of my tracks to work). What do you think?

Not only sine waveforms (sin,sawtooth,square,noise.....) ^_^

(Do you use FL Studio for your music?? ^_^) (I wanna learn how to make music too!.... After I learn how to draw Anime on PC... ~_~)

actually scribbletune is a open source library.. which use node.js concept.. the function creates a .midi file the function goes like this.. const scribble = required('scribbletune') let cmajor=scribble.clip({ notes: scribble.scale('c', 'major'), pattern :' xxx--xxxx---xx--' }); scribble.midi(cmajor);

for combining two or more musics.. u need to use some apps like garageband.. there you have every instrument provided in it.. once you develop the midi file import it to the app and place each track to the different instruments and play them all at once and then get the desired file as a single source

there are functions.. I just mentioned basic of it.. if you explore more u can get it.. there's much more in it

@Skayo I don't know I have to work with it. @ValentinHacker Yes I use FL. I have never complete a single track :'(. If you want to start making music you have to learn much of things. But I think it's fun haha

@ValentinHacker Interesting but I'm not sure if it's possible to make music with that. It's more like editing stuff.

@SamKhan Yep. But what about when you want to use FM = Frequency Modulation (combining two or more wavetables frequencies to actually make a new one) for example..

@Sami Khan You didn't understand. Not two audio files playing together. Two wavetables (actually wavetables are audio files too) frequencies. For example using a sine wave at 50hz as a carrier and then modulating it with another sine wave at 600hz. This will generate a new waveform with different sound.

@ValentinHacker Really interesting. Tbh I don't know the programming logic behind it (I'm new in programming field). I just know what happens in audio when you do that. Actually every waveform it's made of multiple sine waves with different frequencies/phase/gain.

@ValentinHacker Actually sawtooth, squares and every waveform it's made of different sine waves. You can check it on a synth's fft (if they have).

For example on serum you can select a sawtooth and with a button it shows on fft which harmonics and phases used to make it. And also you can use fft to make your own waveforms.

My laptop came here yesterday, so my comments for this is: -Not really fast for browsing (I guess because of low single-core performance of processor) -I think it downloads programs fast (but not really sure for this, may I'm wrong) -System is fast. It boots up quickly (even with HDD), I don't have any crashes and generally has a good speed -I don't like screen (color, black, non-fhd), but on the other hand it's not a big deal except that your eyes are getting tired after some time -I'll see how it works with FL Generally, I'm a bit disappointed and a bit ok. I think for now it's ok but some time in future I will need to buy something better.
