BLEEPCHALLENGE


>You have until saturday to produce a song. We are posting here on Saturday primarily, there are those who probably can't post until sunday but the goal was saturday.

>Also, you can't just drop your song link like a SC thread, you have to talk about what you did, what you were going for, cool things you did in the mix. Talk about what you did technically, this is a learning experience. The comments shouldn't be like "Nice" or "Cool song", you either post something constructive or don't post something at all. Either way, there are gonna be anons who read all the technical shit that you post and that's the whole reason we're doing this first anything goes challenge.

Today's 5:32 raw sound design session with the Korg Monotron, no editing but taking out really bad clipping takes. There's even a reese in there, so you can get some interesting things if you chop and sample this.

Why TRS?

>>48520759
Yeah they're great I use them to go from my Analog Keys to the mixer to get the individual outs and I have used them live on several occasions. For cheap non fixable cables they are absolutely great and super cheap
>>
>>48520836
Yeah, I think they're so reliable because they're a single molded piece. Plus the colors make everything easy to follow. I also like how the blue is easily discernible from the purple (I'm blue/purple colorblind).
>>
>>48520858
Definitely, and especially in the dark it's easy to follow where as the regular black cables tend to just look like a clusterfuck with any amount of darkness

Wow, and we were having such a fun time being excited yesterday, kinda sad to see everyone get so fucking mad all of a sudden. No need to take it so personally holy shit.

>>48522011

I said it yesterday and used the same link, not really guessing since you're a regular of the thread.

>>48522076

Oh? You have a VST that does have any aliasing whatsoever with extremely high LFO rates?

Do you even know what aliasing means?

>>
>>48522481
aw fuck. Well I can't help you directly but I can give you some tips to salvage that monstrosity.

Let me ask you, how are the drums dividing on those two tracks?

How is the guitar recorded? Direct or from the amp micced up?

Do you have the Waves Ultrabass plugin? Because it helps with the low end on bass, maybe there is some logic equivalent?

I'd be more help if you were using Live :(
>>
>tfw just made a phat beat

>>48522572
there are, but every primary instrument (guitar, vocals, guitar synth pad) have a really prominent range from like 400-~3k. the guitar will sometimes go a little higher but if i bring up anything higher it just doesn't sound natural cus the frequencies just aren't there.

I overdubbed all of it through a tascam mk144 interface so it's just bad, i didn't know what i was doing, and didn't care. i'm also doing it for free and have put at least 120 hours into these songs and i'm like halfway done

I've found out why I have so much trouble writing music. In my DAW, I'm building music visually, putting note after note of music into a loop with my mouse. I default to focusing more on the visual steps rather than the audio.

I have a keyboard for a midi controller, but I run into the same problem, since the steps on a keyboard are laid out in such a visually simple way as well.

Any advice or tips?

>>48522803

The high-end of the drums could be more defined or something but it's okay like that

It's not that bad, even if very mid-rich. You're probably going to hate me for this, but I'd be more worried about the cheap sounding drums and the lack of tightness in the performance if I were you.

Didn't know if i should post it here since /bleep/ was an absolute shithole for the few generals i spent there, but here goes.

What are some ways of manipulating samples and found sounds into interesting things?
So far I've been playing around with paulstretch, pitch shifting and time stretching, EQing and layering but where do you go from there?

I found that some of the plugins i've (illegally) downloaded and others included in my DAW don't really manipulate the source of the sound itself, but simply masks it with it's own distinct sound. Fully realized now that i do not want my (music) to be various plugins with preset settings.

I've been busy with what i mentioned first and just messing around with those things while recording the process in real-time does already give me pretty good varied results but i'm looking for something more interesting.
>>
>>48519372
The DX100 is a should-buy, if not for its bright, 90s pop feel, just for its value and addition to your setup.

Cut them up, like, into MILLISECONDS of pieces, rearrange them, copypasta, multi-layer, voila, granular manipulated individual sounds
>>

Yeah the guitar is fine, it's the pads and the vocals that interfere. especially since she doubles a lot of her melodies on the same octave, so it's just mud as fuck.

>>48523153
I often arrange samples on a timeline and then stretch them using various ablelon live plug ins. I also re-arrange them into other things.

I often don't use a "sampler" per se. But I use ableton Live clip editing often by cutting them up, layering them over each other, pitching them, stretching them beyond recognition, filtering, resampling.

The list goes on forever really.

>>48523200
this guys got it

>>48523153
Distortion and other effects. For example, reverse a sample like a piano key, apply reverb, bounce it and then reverse it back. It's always fun.

Listening to it and it actually sounds nice, too. Not hair-tearingly terrible. But the vocals need to be louder. The drums sound a bit too tinny and low-end I somehow didn't notice any pads/interference even in the first track, I didn't even know this had any pads

I have no experience with DAWs but I'd load that sample into my Akai 2000 and chop it, assign several sections of it to different ranges of the keyboard, tune it, and play some solo part in the same key as whatever I'm making. Also playing around with the glitchy timestretch, horrible sample rates and filters is always fun.

I don't know if I'd call that album ambient tho. I mean, it's definitely good for background noise, but it's pretty focused if you listen to it closely. Anyway, I guess I just mean that there's not much out there that fuses microsound and acoustic instruments like that album does. Been trying to do something in that style but it's not super easy.

Ableton Live has a hidden feature where you can display every plugin on each channel strip, like in other DAWs such as Logic or Pro Tools.

How to enable the option:
Create an Options.txt file in plain text
The file must say -ShowDeviceSlots
Place Options.txt in the most recent version of Live’s Preferences directory

Mac:
/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live x.x/

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Ableton\Live x.x\Preferences\

Newer Windows:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Ableton\Live x.x\Preferences\

Now, when you start Live you will notice there is a new icon in the Live view. Click it and each plugin on each channel strip should appear.

>I always thought about some tuned "animal" instrument and Barking Buddy is my first attempt. I am sure, I will return to try this again in the future with more dogs

Idk if anyone remembers or cares, but I offered $300 for the CP-70, he countered $350.

Needs a new string, but the last CP-70 I saw sold for $1000. Seems more than fair. That leaves me room to get a nice strobe tuner, new string, and a few tanks of gas

TR-8 and a Mini/Microbrute depending on your wants/price range
>>
>>48527383
Microbrute. But for the drum machine there really is not much in the way of analogue machines that people can actually afford apart from the Volva Beats, but the snare is retarded sounding. There is an extremely easy mod to fix that, but I don't know if you'd be prepared for that.

The Rhythm Wolf is coming out soon I think, but it sounds so dull and boring that I wouldn't be interested. Extremely cheap, though.

>>48527520
>>48527486
Yeah I was thinking microbrute and the volca beats. The TR-8 is too expansive for now. how easy is it to mod ?
>>
>>48527712
The TR-8 is digital. No sense in modding it really.
>>
>>48527743
No i meant the snare issue with the volca.
>>
>>48527712
Volcas are easy to mod IMO
>>
>>48527712
the TR-8 is basically a customized midi controller no one's going to bother modding it

>>48527826
it's a fairly simple fix, just the circuitry inside the volcas is borderline microscopic and will require previous experience with soldering if you don't want to fry your kit
>>
>>48527826
how much soldering have you done before?

>>48527846
adding outputs is piss easy, the snare fix is not
>>
>>48527592
cables that are permanently plugged in like in music production set ups very rarely fail

>>48527826
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7P3bmype2c0
>>
>>48527856
TR-8 is a bit more than a MIDI controller once you get into it. i understand if youre not into it, but feel like thats selling it way short for what it is.
>>
>>48527907
That guy is really unclear in that video, it's hard to tell which pads to soldier to.

Also, my music production setup involves no permanently plugged in cables. Don't generalize.
>>
>>48527962
yeah it's a nice machine and you get way more bang for your buck than you would for throwing down $3k+ on an 808, I was just clarifying that no one's gonna mod it
>>
>>48528072
for sure.
>>
>>48527846
>>48527856
>>48527862
I have very little experience with soldering so i doubt this is an option. the akai rhythm wolf looks interesting, but i cant find sounds anywhere
>>
>>48528118
There's one video. It doesn't sound too good.
>>
>>48528157
hmm I might just get the volca beats, or do you have other suggestions.
>>
>>48528372
go Volca. for the price, not a lot out there really.
>>
>>48527967
ok
>>
>>48528372
Volca is your only realistic choice.
>>
>>48528118
Some people like the volca beats as is and some people don't, but I can say with strong certainty that the rhythm wolf is (or will be) a pile of shit.

I personally have owned a volca beats for months now and have been using it without the snare fix. I'm setting up to mod it soon because I'm tired of having a drum machine without a snare, but honestly it's a good little box for the price.

If you want a good sort of 'all in one' drum machine for cheap you should also check out all the digital drum machines that were pumped out from like '87 to '04 or so. You can usually get a fully functioning unit for $75-$100 and they have much more memory than analogue kits. That being said you're going to have to do research for yourself to make sure that you're investing in a box that A) actually sounds good (since they're sample-based there isn't that much customization on the cheaper ones) B) will actually work and doesn't run the risk of the internal battery cutting out or the pads dying or anything, and C) actually makes sense, as the 90's were a golden era for digital synths with tiny screens and tons of menu diving

I started off messing around with several of the Boss Dr Rhythm models and it was definitely a dirt-cheap way to get into the game
>>
>>48528511
ANOTHER NOTE

Using a vintage (meaning more than 10 years old in this case) digital drum machine is basically like using a way more complicated and outdated version of Garageband with basically the same final product. I would really only recommend it if you desperately want a physical machine but can't afford to go any higher than ~$80

>>48530636
Well there are better synths, better compressors, and better tons of other things, but you're not going to be satisfied until you know what you aren't satisfied with.
>>
>>48530665
Thanks for the input. On a semi related note, if I really would like a hardware synth, what would be the best choice if I'm looking for something affordable and large-ish (I was looking at the microbrute but I would want to have more than just two octaves). Or does such a thing exist without spending a shitton of money?
>>
>>48530879
In that price range, you're looking at a tradeoff between sound, keys, and programmability. You can always plug a midi keyboard into the microbrute.

yes this is important. i mean, depending on your budget it's always hard to determine what you need. people make good shit without an acoustically treated room though, so you shouldn't wait for you room to get treated before you make stuff.

auralex does this thing where you send them a room diagram and they tell you where you should put your shit and how much foam youre gonna need for your walls. and where to put it and what kind. definitely a good investment if you're not moving anytmie soon

I didn't see the initial asking price but I applaud that you offered so low. People always seem afraid to dicker and it's silly, that's how you get the best deals. If they say no, who cares? The internet has destroyed the concept of scarcity.

I don't have one but I had access to one for a long time, even acoustic it's a nice piece.
>>
>>48531909
No, that guy is from Wisconsin, where apparently nobody knows what instruments are worth on CL. I'm the one with the Minimoog and the ridiculous amount of cash on it.

>>48531936
Asking price was $400, but I normally go 20% below, I've been rejected on better offers too, but the guy knew how to reciprocate. I hate people who treat CL as buy it now evilbay. I had a chance at a YC-45d combo organ for $500, offered $400 and he flat out declined, like what was he thinking listing a firm price on CL?

As per the piano, I'm excited, I've heard them on recordings, but I have so many ideas I want to try that can't be done with other instruments. Plus it'll be nice to have a piano in the home again.
