I have an idea for a new link. I'm relatively new to this music thing, and I know little of the terminology used here. For example, I have no idea what a synth or a stem is.

What I am proposing is a sort of a dictionary thread with definitions of terms you are likely to come across when making music. It would certainly help me out a lot.

Thanks for the heads up. Weird. It seems whenever a link drops the link will switch to something else.

I'm just starting out and have all the gear, I even have the creative spark needed. I'm just lacking the ability to put that all together on a program and get it sounding right. I haven't read them yet but I really have a good feeling this guide will get me heading in the right direction.

But seriously, I'm a new musician and the first genre I want to get into is dark ambient, like Aurastys or your If Equestria Burns. I would be so grateful.

Wow, I'm so gonna Watch That Video :)

I really want to make good Orcheatsral Arrangements (like how I rearranged the word Orchestral there)
I make different kinds of music, often get told that It sounds like something for a Video Game because I make only instrumentals, never had a chance to make music for an actual game. I would love to.
