    Although I have a good idea about a few I am interested to hear a proper explanation on the terms that fly about when describing tunes, like snare, kick, synth, etc

    well kicks are surly self explanatory. snare go tsh. high hats go ts ts ts .synths do alsort. my favorite is digaderdigaderdigaderne.

    bass sometimes goes wowwowowowowow brghhhh brghhh brr.

    hope that helps until someone who's less sarcastic shows up :teeth:

    Close relation to the synthagator, which is a synthetic (but still extremely dangeropus) alligator, lives in the sewers, sometimes pops it's head up in the toilet bowl. Favourite food, testicles.
