---EXTREME POWER GAP---
7. ALL OTHER CONTENDERS
>piano below guitar and violin
Actually fuck that
>piano below anything
Guitar (only because of the amount of shit you can do with it
Maybe low-end strings?
Then the rest
lmao ok uh huh
ACTUAL LIST BASED ON ACTUAL USEFULNESS:
- pipe organ/computer
- guitar/cultural guitar analogues
- more limited strings (bass, lutes, mandolins, violas, etc)
- saliva-plastered, one-note-shit like woodwinds/brass
The fuck is power level determined by? Thanks for not clarifying the rating system you fucking autist. All you did was brag about how cool a fucking saxophone is. It isn't by the way. You probably think it is because you played it in marching band with the other social rejects in highschool. You probably were inspired to play it because of all the cock you blew. "Hell, if I can blow cock this good, surely I can play the saxaphone!"
Everyone who won't pick synthesizers as number one can fuck right off.
>muh infinite soundscapes
ITT: nerds say their instrument is the best
im biased towards organ and pedal hapsicord so im not including those
god-tiet: trumpet, drums, bass
really good tier: piano, clarinet
okay tier: sax, most other brass, cello, guitars, harph, xylophones and metalophones
bad: other strings, lap irons etc. gong, most percussion
shit: fucking violin i cant stand that shit. piccolo
its well known that acoustic instruments have richer sounds, and more variety of timbre and color.
synths can do a lot, and can even sound like acoustic instruments. but they can never capture the nuances of a real performer playing a real acoustic instrument.
also there are acoustic instruments that sound like synths:
here's my ranking
1. human voice
2. church organ
7. oboe D'amore
10. french horn
11. cor anglais
12. electric guitar
13. classical guitar
14. viola d'amore
40. bass clarinet
sorry bass clarinet, you are actually very good, but just happened to be last in this particular list.
your evidence does not support your claim.
it cant even do speech properly, let alone sing. and it requires careful programming and months of work to recite those simple sentences.
trumpet, drums, theremin, and a few more, all far more successfully than your computer controller piano, and with far less work.
look at bjork's medulla. its all human voice, no other instruments. beatbox, innuit choir, mike pattons weird noises, etc.
i dont want to put human voice on a pedestal, but its pretty capable. can do anything from harsh noise to soft beauty. it can also sing lyrics, more than you can say of 99% of all other instuments
I will tell you something.
Imagine you have to say what kind of instruments you like. You can say something like this:
"To me music must have at least vocals or trombone or trumpet or sax or violin or piano or (oboe, basson) or (flute, accordion, harmonica)."
PS: when some instrument is inside ( ) this means the track must have all things inside the
( ) to the guy maybe like.
Anyway to some, human vocals, is not only needed to make someone maybe like an track, but there will no choice without vocals.
This means that not only an vocal is better than an piano, cello or trumpet, but is better than all 3 together.
This means vocal is not only an very good instrumenbt but is super mega ultra fucking extremely good according to those guys.
Pretty much. With electronics pretty much everything is possible.
I recommend you pic related btw.
