Reverb is god.
work on symphony grinds on.
almost 15 hours in and only written about 4 min worth
Anyone have any experience doing dub reggae style stuff and willing to give a few pointers? I'm trying to do a dub mix of one of my tracks but I can't really get anything solid going with it: https://clyp.it/tffzsduu
screw you op i almost had a heart attack thinking jbenitex came back and took over our precious /prod/
I dont listen to a ton of dub, but I think the drums need to be punchier. Drop some sustain to accentuate the attack and raise the level. Use more delay, less reverb, and add a strong bass line and I think it'd have a more "dub" type vibe

found some real Jbenitex art
thoughts on this?
I tried to make ambient house with a Korg KR-55B drum machine and Casio/Yamaha keyboards. And I also tried to work in references to İlhan Mimaroğlu and François Bayle.

I have a WIP from last week here:
quite a bit has changed but cbf re exporting at this stage
I also write every other genre in it. very versatile DAW (and one I'm pretty much symbiotic with after 14 years)
I've read on other /prod/ threads some of you guys do music/sound design for video games. If any of you are still lurking around these threads, how did you get into it? What did you have to learn? Any advice for someone looking to get into it? Thanks in advance, if I don't get back to you.
This shit is really neat. Be careful with whatever you're doing in the mixing stage though because the sound quality is noticeably bad. Maybe check your gain stages. But still this is something that could definitely benefit from high compression.
the problem with the eq comes from trying to preserve the noise. You cant fix the quality without taking out some of the grimier elements. or can you? any tips on this?
thank you kebab musicians for the generous portions of open instrument sections in your songs.
I'm really enjoying a lot of this shit. It's just good music in general as well as sampling material.
I have a mate who does game soundtracks, just get involved in gamedev sites and get to know guys making the games, they're out there somewhere needing music, and if you can show them you're capable of high quality music, I'm sure they'll be interested in working with you.
yep studied composition for 4 years.
Schoenberg's Theory of Harmony, and Fundamentals of Musical Construction.
with those two you can pretty much do everything. They're kind of old fashioned but very solid. Payne's Tonal Harmony is a more modern one.
as for orchestration, can't go wrong with Adler's Study of Orchestration and the accompanying CDs, it runs you through what the orchestra is capable of and how the character of the different instruments change at certain registers or in various special effects. Also shows you a lot about chord spacing and texture, and foreground, middleground, background kind of thinking.
What the symphony is is open for debate these days, so there don't seem to be any limits, save for a large scale work for orchestra.
Making a mix in Ableton at the moment, just wondering does this combination of Inside the Deku Tree and Chica Chic work? I like it and I think Deku is doing a good job of covering up the dark vibe of Chica
