Big up to the guy who posted this in the last thread, great stuff.
ok /bleep/ production general isn't up so i'm going to ask my stupid question here. i have two separate monitor speakers, what lead do i need to connect them and have them going into my lappy as 1 sound source? i'm looking around for lead splitters and they're all for plugging things into, not actually splitting/merging the audio source. maybe i'm going about this completely the wrong way please help me.
>inb4 i get le blown the fukk out
ok so 1 of those and 2 male to male leads connecting that to the speakers?
>mfw when i'm meant to be going to college to do audio engineering in like 2 weeks
>dont know fucking anything
>just doing it bc working minimum wage all my life is a bit of a dent and might as well try make something of myself and do something productive
bc im a bit thick and get lost in trying to understand what makes a good soundcard and get worried about wasting my money. i think my lack of knowledge in electronics is kind of holding me back. as far as audio engineering goes, i'm fine once i'm in the daw and doing the things you do there and actually working with music/sound but the hardware side of things just confuses me.
nice one thats the one i was looking for cheers for the help!
bruh, if u got a bit of spare cash just get one of those RME or Motu portable interfaces - they solid as they come. if u got sum less cash just get one those focusrite dealies. oh and the new(ish) steinberg ones are supposed to be solid as well.
unless ur looking to record drums or summat. then ask someone else cause you'll need a lot more mic-pres for those.
you're really out of touch with dance music, man. it's actually laughable some people on here think that anything that isn't berlin techno is lad music.
i suggest you to get out more
For a while, everything labeled Crosstown Rebels was guaranteed to have a huge success. Like that unfortunate year where Jamie Jones and Troxler were n°1 & 2 in the top DJs Poll of RA.
lmao... good job i copped
all u sleepers better sell your parents' house
>suck my dick m8

i'm the pleb.
eugenicise yourself, inferior being. you are a unnatural heathen upon this earth brought into existence only by the SJW feminist agendas. if you care about the advancement of the human race, end yourself so non-repoducers such as yourself wont be a burden on humanity no longer.
fis is scary unique. even if he misses the mark for me about 1/3rd of the time, the tunes of his which have been on-point are so good any one of them could define lesser producers' careers.
what's with records being so expensive? was about to order a couple of records from Kristina Records and the grand total was £24... decided for a giggle to see how bad the people of Venezuela have it and to fly the order to Venezuela it only costs £27. Annoying
yeah I don't get it either. there is some crossover stuff but it's still silly.
i also laughed at this. http://boomkat (.) com/vinyl/881102-lee-bannon-alternate-endings
pretty evident drum and bass/jungle influence all over the record, with minor hip-hop influence. let's just call it 'beats' tho.
Posting a classic goodie.
Often quiet at this time because it seems most of the UK/Euro gang are early birds, for some reason. Rarely many night owl man in and Amerifats don't care about /bleep/ so the threads die almost every night
thats true bruv but this thread was started more than half a day ago and it's not even close to the bump limit, and it's not like people were all at work on a saturday. i go through phases of listening to exclusively dance music (as opposed to mostly) and going on /bleep/ heavily and i'm just getting back into one but about 3 months ago these threads were definitely healthier
swear down fam
i'll allow quietness at this time like i imagine most people are either still out skanking or morelli shutins who went to bed hours ago, im only up cause im back in hometown and bailed on an absolutely peak jump up night (which is the only thing you get round here)
but this thread has been going all day I swear
lovely scenery tho
too bad mate, hope the next ones better mines been alright, found a couple of tasty jungle footwork mixes
does that hybrid have a portmanteau style name yet? maybe footbreaks?
fungle is nice
could go for that
this is that one with the description some label head went on a mad1 about because it described dnb as being in purgatory for the last ten years
anyways here you go, my most rinsed mix in a long time
dig your own hole is great and has aged better than the other two
jilted hasn't aged all that well but that aside it's still an enjoyable album
you've come a long way is similar in those regards but not as good as jilted.
i'm just gonna go ahead and predict a big beat revival happening sometime around 2018-2020.
>people unironically using this term now
Favorite minimal techno release? It's a tie between this and Plastikman's Consumed for me.
yo, man, not that there's anything wrong with those records but for some reason i'm going to brand you a poseur and make you my new least-favourite-tripfag. you just seem like one of those try-hard, google-to-fit-in-real-quick types. no offence.
wp66 was the only who was actually knowledgeable and put some effort into the community, so he left lol. i think ninja tripped occasionally other than that it's just blemeing memers
wp69 was an ok trip, if a bit arrogant / know-all at times. he knew his stuff about gear but didn't seem desperately well-listened
lukecool was/is a good trip. i reckon he's still here a lot just not tripping for whatever reason. probs realised that tripping is lame
SMVMS or whatever (or was it sevastapol?) posted some heart-felt shit about how he wasn't going to post here anymore but will lurk. or maybe that was eureka
can't think of anymore trips worthy of mention tbh. there's tensnake and summer the weird american attention seekers... not worth mentioning really tho
fram / iddy gets repressed more than most others, you'll see it again soon i'm sure
i got tonight / blue and raw code / junked
nice to see cactus getting a repress, that things going for like £20 or more atm
my favourite release from that label so far actually, and the only one i've bothered buying.
untitled would be biggg on a soundsystem but i don't go to the right kind of nights to hear that tune. tend to go to more 'uk bass', dubstep, dnb, uk techno sorta nights
Should I get a microkorg or a novation impulse 49?
I mainly want to use it for ambient type shit, which I know the microkorg isn't great for, but I figure since they both cost the same it might be worth it since you can supposedly use the microkorg as a midi controller as well.
Mainly going to be using it with m tron pro though.
yeah but it is still a better thread. noise is shit anyway. there is little 4chan has to offer as arbiters of content professionals make that can't be more easily found elsewhere. 4chan will only be come good when everyone realizes that the people who actually post on this site are the only thing of value here. The people need to create original content to share. the rest is just circle jerks and fistfights
i do really like i'd say about 50% of his output
however, normally this wouldn't ever affect my listening but the fact that i know zomby is such a massive cunt really makes it more difficult to enjoy his music
>They actually post their tunes there
brubru, if we started advocating shit like that in /bleep/ this place would quickly turn into a bro-infested shithole which jumps from every moombahstep to bigroomtrap trend.
plus, that's what /bleeproduction/ is for.
bruhs, people post their tunes here once in a blue moon and that's fine, innit. generally the quality of those tunes tends to be higher than what you'd hear on the rest of the board.
but don't go and advertise these threads as places to that lest /bleep/ turns into a soundcloud general. i don't know if you boys been in one of those but that crowd is best kept quarantined in their circle jerks.
i thought someone just renamed those synth generals n made bleeproduction.
looked like that same crowd was in there anyway. depressing crew those guys. i wonder how many people got suckered into buying minibrutes by them lot.
anyone been going to the rinse x fwd genre nights? they've had such good vibes so far. coki absolutely mashed the place up on thursday. probably gonna hit em all up apart from maybe funky
wasn't coki's set really tearout-orientated though? i saw him at fabric in may and if i wasn't on 3 and a half pills i don't think i would've enjoyed any of the tunes outside of his own pre-2010 stuff. also at outlook last year whenever he stepped on the decks it was just pure filth, really disrupting the dmz vibes
Gonna be in amsterdam when this is on
Not too keen for caribou but would like to see jessy lanza since there's no chance she'll play where I live. Is she likely to have a decent lengthed set??
yeah, it was a bit but like the night was about the whole history of dubstep i feel so it was good to have some of that sorta stuff represented. and like coki is probably the best guy to do it if u gotta do it. he did play loads of his own tunes. it was kinda cool vibes. none of that like "if u skank to hard ur killing the atmosphere" stuff that u get at nights like system or w/ever. people were so up for it. anti war dub also got a reload, which i've never heard before. actually, just have a listen if u want: http://rinse.fm/player/?play=http://podcast.dgen.net/rinsefm/podcast/CokiFWD040914.mp3?artist=?date=01:00%20-%2002:00?img=undefined
http://rinse.fm/rinse20/genretakeovers/ they say they pick people at random but every single person i know has gotten a ticket for every event so far so i think they just give em to everyone
>the night was about the whole history of dubstep
ah right well that would've been a much more interesting and funner set then
>anti war dub also got a reload, which i've never heard before
actually speaking of anti war dub, ive found that these days DJs are rinsing out that tune just for the sake of getting a reaction, rather than saving it for perfect moments. it's just not special anymore, kinda sad...
I dont know. That dude sucks anyway, though. Trust fund kiddie who makes boring music.
hey guys I just finished this song using samples from 70's funk and synthesizer records tell me what you think!! All non samples came from Reason and my Korg DW 6000, Dave Smith Tempest, and various yamaha toy keyboards!!!!
reminds me of machinedrum, which is cool because his stuff got me into producing. you need more layered background elements imo, and work on your transitions, they're pretty disjoint and random.
he's speaking generally of course. it's true though. if you ask any college-age kid in the US about /bleep/, you'd be lucky to get a response like "flying lotus, aphex twin, the list goes on", as you can see from the errant /mu/tants who sometimes stumble upon this thread. plus the people who were around at the beginning of dance music are like 50 now.
>plus the people who were around at the beginning of dance music are like 50 now.
You should specify /bleep/, the real people who were around for the beginning of dance music are long dead
I'd say most still are.
>if you ask any college-age kid in the US about /bleep/, you'd be lucky to get a response like "flying lotus, aphex twin, the list goes on"
You're giving college kids way too much credit. You'd be more likely to hear shit like Bassnectar or Skrillex or Deadmau5. I've never been to Europe but I can't imagine it's any different there.
you sure are smart, anon
is future garage even a thing? is that what hessle audio and livity sound are? or is it just a catch-all term for soundcloud-core shit (i've seen XXYYXX called "future garage")
yeah, i was talking about the 'hip' kids who might have decent taste in music. unfortunately, they tend to just listen to entry level /mu/core bullshit. but yeah, skrillex, deadmau5 and bassnectar are what gets played at frat parties and stuff.
i don't know, when i first started seriously getting into electronic music like 3 years ago, i was into burial and mount kimbie of course, and people (i.e. rym) were calling that stuff "future garage". i just ask because stuff like this
is what i would've called "future garage" back then.
such a classic reply
it doesn't change the fact that these threads die in the hands of the americans and that most people here are european and that the dance music culture is more prevalent in europe than america
so what if it was born in america? that's got nothing to do with the fact that people there now don't care about it so much
lol yeah, butthurt patriots are flying in to prove they like techno more than other people
Just saying, you could say euros are...obsessed :^)
>most people here are european
Only if by "dance music culture" you mean /bleep/ tier music then I'll admit, it's probably more prevalent in Europe but if you mean EDM then I disagree. Artists like Skrillex and the ones I mentioned earlier are huge here.
reminder that this used to be cool
bass music is an umbrella term for the different kinds of UK dance music that emerged after dubstep dwindled away. There isn't a good genre descriptor because the scene was so fragmented
Disclosure would be an example of ladbass
You act as if you know everything when in reality you are absolutely clueless.
Of course there is a blooming rave culture going on in america right now. The problem with that rave culture is that it arrived 15 years late and that compared to rave culture that was going on in the EU 15 years ago, this "rave culture" is commercialized and extremely homogenized. I don't deny that most of the music that gets played at those american EDM festivals is made by european producers but the fact is that it's the US folks that keep eating their shit up and make those hacks successful, their fanbase in the EU doesn't compare to the fanbase they have in the US.
Here's a great question to think about: why did the US hate on "techno" back in the 90s and early 00s but suddenly likes "EDM" music?
i figured. disclosure is played on top 40 radio with shit like nicki minaj and katy perry in america though. same with shit like martin garrix and avicii. for what it's worth, i don't think skrillex, bassnectar, etc. ever really achieved that level of popularity here. they're more listened to by call of duty-playing 13 year olds.
>he's fucking trash
Woah, his newer stuff was shit but his second and first ep were pretty good.
Ok tell me what kind of music do they play raves in Europe?
m8 I've got a triple stack on me right now
im bout that life
this s/t trip fag is worse than summer and tensnake combined. he literally knows nothing about music lol wtf
i'm kind of amazed that someone so clueless has managed to find this obscure and hyper-specific discussion
i guess it's like the monkey writing shakespeare thing. given enough time a total retard will stumble across /bleep/ thinking he knows stuff
i've never encountered an american who isn't a know-all idiot. it's like something's in the water over there. wtf kind of education system do you have? all the amerifats that i've met in the UK and when travelling in europe have been so clueless and uninformed yet so confident that they know bare shit. so weird
i am drinking your tears
i was trying to make a point
most of the worthwhile /bleep/ tier music was made in america ex techno, chicago house, etc
What does europe have? Some shitty hardstyle or jungle or uk garage and shit
>implying that europe doesn't write good techno / house etc.
that stuff might have its roots there but it doesn't mean the USA is the only place that creates good techno or house these days
if it wasn't for europe we wouldn't even have america so i guess europe trumps all insofar that all americans were made in europe if you trace it back, just like all techno is american if you trace it back. so techno is european??????
kraftwerk created techno you plens
and stockhausen made electronic music into what it is today with signal processing and sound modulation and shit like that
all that falls down to germany being the birthplace of electronic music, not the UK and not the US
why are you guys having a /pol/-tier argument over whether the usa or europe has a more legitimate /bleep/ "culture"? i mean it's good to shit on aphex twin and skrillex posters, but beyond that it just deteriorates the thread's quality...
/bleep/ would probably be more popular in the us if the drinking age weren't 21. the alternative to clubs here for young people is like parties thrown by bros who have shit taste like skrillex. that's probably the main issue tbh.
mate you fucking retard if it wasn't for michael faraday we wouldn't even have electricity as we know it today, let alone having the luxury to plug a synth in and hit record
get real, morons!! UK invented techno
and i've never met a european who wasn't a passive aggressive cock sucker. doesn't mean they're all like that
Yes but who made it first and who made it best?
Of course that was an exaggeration, Europe obviously has house and techno artists, some good ones, but America made it first so it is inherently more "worthwhile"
kraftwerk is definitely not techno
>implying that anything american comes close to workshop or basic channel / chain reaction or something.
yeah america started out experimenting with some technoy sounds but it's well basic shit compared to what europe went on (and have continued) to produce
unpopular opinion but those old detroit guys aren't that good but they are worthy of respect and praise for being pioneers of a sound, but put their shit next to some euro stuff and it sounds fucking retarded and amateurish
both good tunes but one is leagues ahead of the other
