That's better than most stuff ;)

Could just be a mental note that means more to the user than to us.

Hang on, didn't one of 'Team Propellerhead' get onto the PUF praising the virtues of low quality recordings, citing name artists who used lo-fi material? At the time, it sounded like a convenient excuse for promoting a poor quality audio cloud service. I mean sure, we can turn lacklustre stuff into magic from time to time, but it's not something to strive for or celebrate.

Whatchu talkin bout, Willis? Vocal chop that shit up and turn it into some Skrillex type shit. That dope ass whistle melody has some hardcore potential. I just might sample that shit, homie! Or it could be the start of a beautiful love ballad :s0225:

Let's make a challenge.... a one minute song using ONLY that sample, and using ONLY stock devices in Reason 7 (and err, 8... which has no new native devices?)

Reason development was put to the side for that. Priceless. :thumbup:

For years, I have been using a Sony ICD-PX820 for precisely musical note-taking.  I got it after years of coming up with song ideas and lyrics and forgetting them one or two days later.  Take and Discover are perfect for doing this.  I'm jealous that all you guys have perfect musical memories.  And even more that you all have such quiet lives that nothing distracts you from working on songs, like work, family, sleep, world events, etc.  I have hundreds if not thousands of little clips like this on my Sony.

I have loads of poor quality sketches too. On 'voice notes' on the iphone.
I don't put them on Soundcloud for anyone to hear though, they're on my device for my ears only.

Look maybe it's a child experimenting?
But without knowing your colaborator how can you know?
It's just a track alongside other tracks. Divorced from any info about who made it, which might elicit a more encouraging/caring response from a potential mentor.

Yorick, you're totally wrong. This is in fact a cow's fart, treated with awesome reason devices to sound like a human whistle. Are you impressed now?

As said I make audio notes precisely because I rarely remember melodies or ideas after I've popped them out. Many of us don't. And I have two young kids and plenty of distractions. :)
But does a really poorly recorded three-ish note whistle belong on a public site like this?
Is this indicative of the kind of collaboration Discover will be filled with if it's being aimed at hobbyist kids exploring collaboration?

Woah.....

I wonder what it'd sound like imported into Omnisphere 2's granular synthesizer?

I have enough trouble polishing my own turds. I'm a prolific pooper! Can't incorporate any foreign feces into my busy schedule at this time.

Challenge ! Seriously, let's see what you can do with a single sound file. Confined to 6.5 devices so Yorick can play. That means no synchronous or audiospastic.

I was thinking about the discover situation at work today and I thought "how long until someone just posts a bunch of gibberish for a laugh". This is moving in that direction but at least it has some notes haha.

Im not a prophet, but i can imagine that Apple throws a new Smartrecorder on the market or some adaptable Beats-iMics for the Iphone. 

PH could have some background infos and is now polishing the apple with Apple  :roll:

Actually I could make use of that whistle, just clean up the noise a bit with RX4, add some cool effects and it could actually be a key hook in a track. I'm going to use it!

You mob haven't even worked out the obvious. This was clearly some guy doing a quick test to see how it all worked. It wouldnt surprise me if the default name in TAKE was 'my song'. Regardless, it was not intended to be an entry. He just forgot to delete it.
