Mangoré—Spring 2016


big version: http://marbleduck.name/img/albumart_big.png

Mangoré is the name of the album that I intend to release early next year. I've started recordings of the songs, most of which I have memorized and are part of my current repertoire. Others I have played in the past but are not currently part of it, as I will have to review them extensively.

This thread and OP will be updated with various versions of the recordings as I work through the process of converting the pieces from stuff in my head to stuff that others can hear. I'm not putting this in the music thread because this specific post will be updated frequently.

A bit of background: I'll be turning 20 in a few months, and I have played guitar for around 14 of those years. To be perfectly frank, while I'm probably not the best guitarist in existence, I am, according to well-known musicians that I've played with—John Doan and Guilherme Vincens—more talented than most who have played for as long as I have. I'm currently recording on the same mic I use for my commentaries, a Blue Yeti Pro, with a Duane Waterman guitar which I got secondhand for around $3500. All these pieces are composed by the Paraguayan Agustín Barrios Mangoré, and are intended for solo guitar.

Got rid of old formatting because I'm lazy

From the audio side, downloaded the recording of La Catedral part one, recording is quite noisy I'm guessing this is down to the pre-amp/amp DAC in the blue yeti, using a USB mic to record music is a not ideal. It's also somewhat boxy with too much content in the 300-650Hz region for my tastes. However it's not abysmally bad quality and is certainly 'workable.'

From the music side it's well played, personally I'm not massively interested in solo played covers of flamenco pieces but those who enjoy such should have no issue with it I can see.

I did a quickish half hour work over of the audio, posted here, cause I'm just that nice.

Nice playing, even though I'm not the biggest fan of classical Spanish music. I'm gonna assume that you didn't compose those though. However I can't view any of them on Soundcloud.

How to ice an A-91

Next, wanna try adding a guy that you KNOW is bad, and just testing to see that? Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

Example: PP-2000 (god I so wanna love this gun, and yet...)

PP-2000 added. Y'know, it's not that bad....

Yes, it comes in last so far, but that is mostly because I'm making it shoot at 100m ADS - Not Moving as one of the criteria. Even then, between 50-100m Not Moving, when you include Useability, it is only 1.37% worse than the MTAR-21. Within 50m then it even beats the A-91.

Have a look, vs. the A-91 Carbine:




Using it with Muzzle Brake and Compensator is a wash in terms of overall performance. Comp is SLIGHTLY more accurate, while MB is SLIGHTLY more easy to use. Their overall scores are basically tied, with MB just ahead. I guess either can be recommended.

But... You can't be counting for the fact that it takes 9 bullets to kill at "long" range... Don't you dare tell me my A-91 is worse than a 9 BTK 650 RPM mediocre PDW.

Also. Just go heavy barrel. The recoil is low enough.

Well, technically...

Comparing a PP2K with HB and an A-91 with comp and stubby (as you suggested in an earlier post), at 50m not moving, the A-91 is only better by 4 damage per hitrate. While at 75m and 100m, surprisingly the PP2K does better than the A-91 (I'm pretty damn surprised as well).

And 10m and 50m moving the PP2K also does more damage per hitrate than the A-91. At 25m the A-91 is only better by about half a bullet's damage as well.

In addition, the PP2K has a much larger mag size and substantially less recoil. And it looks hella awesome. So comparing the A-91 to a PDW is of some worth after all, as the PP2K is better (technically, not practically) than the A-91.

Mind blown.

I... I...

*cries in a corner*

Zer0Cod3x explained it very well. If you look at the raw numbers right here on Symthic Comparison, you can see how that happened:

A-91 vs PP-2000 | BF4 Weapon Comparison | Symthic

A-91's "23%" RPM advantage only afforded it 1 extra round.

Reload times are wash.

Velocities are wash.

V-Recoil are wash (and this is HBar on PP2k vs. A-91 without).

Hipfire and ADS - Moving are better on the PP2k, but it's a PDW and not the surprising part.

The surprising part is that, as equipped (and we see above that PP2k HBar has almost same V-Recoil as A-91 without HBar so why not?), the PDW performs better at 50 - 100m than a bloody Carbine. Why?

H-Recoil Spread, 0.525 vs. 0.45, advantage PP2k.

SIPS, 42% better on the PP2k.

And here is the most important part. ADS - Not Moving Spread, 0.35 vs. 0.2, 43% improvement.

Without HBar then of course the PP2k loses, which is why when I add all the attachments together for an Overall Ranking, it would slot below the A-91. Run HBar on it, though, then... I'm sorry

Teamwork is where players function by themselves, but their effectiveness is multiplied when they work together. Not a checklist of "did we bring a healer so we can start playing?"

Thanks. I'll have a listen when I can grab my headphones.

I'm actually working with the mic with XLR through my USB DAC—Steinberg UR22—which should improve things a bit. I also have a Fast Track Duo if you think that'd be better.

Not sure why Soundcloud is being fucky.

And since I forgot to mention this earlier (just edited the OP): All pieces are composed for solo guitar by Agustín Barrios Mangoré, the best composer ever.

Thanks, only one that works for me.

I am not familiar with this type of music, as it's always accompanied with other instruments to what I listen to, but I like hearing it on the background; the cadence makes me continue working and the warm tone makes everything more comfy. Quite enthralling music.

In what quarter will you (OP)/are you planning to release your first (?) album?
