Post the tracks you're working on, discuss general music composition. Learn which mic preamp you should get and why you can't afford it.
Remember to use:

>soundcloud for finished tracks and getting called a rear-end rider for not going to soundcloud threads
We're making an album! (or trying to).

Last thread was a good informative one, keep it up!

We're making an album! (or trying to).

Anything goes, feel free to find anons to collab and have fun with in any way you want. Or just work solo.
We're doing this for fun.
Rushing into this looking for things to buy is not the best idea unless you are rolling in cash, carefully survey the landscape and try to predict your needs in the near future
with that said, everybody should have a midi keyboard / controller, doesn't have to be too fancy. also get an audio interface if you want to record IRL stuff (as well as mics/preamps, duh), roland or focusrite are good low end ones
with just a decent DAW (music program) and a midi keyboard you can keep busy for years to come
I'm still using my old Edirol so I'm not too good on the new ones, though I hear m-audio makes decent cheap ones
Monitors are not a good idea to skimp out on, you can do with headphones until you can find a decent pair
when looking both for monitors and headphones, the key is to look for a reasonably flat frequency response (so throw away those beats by dre, dingus), sennheisers cheaper ones like the HD 215 are not a terrible way to start
heck i know engineers who are perfectly comfortable in koss portapros
My headphones (MDR-7506), which are plugged into a USB audio interface, "pop" when I turn on the PC. This is probably a common occurrence, but is it bad for the headphones? Should I be unplugging them before I turn it on every day?
It might sound good to bring in a fast square wave arpeggio at 1:03
I've been working on my own album recently and I have a track that I am looking for some third party input on, will return feedback and suggestions
Eh whatever, I think the song holds up. The soundcloud threads are absolutely dead and I am interested in talking synthesizers and monitors and all that too, which nobody in soundcloud threads really knows about other than Massive and Sylenth.
The dude bro that you replied to wasn't the original poster. I've had good experiences before and really it's not differen't than clyp other than the fact that this shit is actually a song right now instead of 2 bars of whatever.
Slowly posting circuits for all the parts of a synth if anybody is interested.
Anybody had any experience with the Steinberg CMC series? I have about $150 in Guitar Center cash (bought monitors on the $10GCC for every $50 spent) and I am looking for stuff to do with that fake money because it is only valid for a couple of weeks. Recommendations?
Yes, but you best learn how to read schematics. A general guide to electrical engineering would be a good start because I don't recommend going in blind. If you get real good though you can make anything.
Thanks for the circuits, but please don't post Soundcloud links here. We prefer clyp.it because it's anonymous. Everyone here has a name and a career or aspirations of, but we don't need to know who you are. That kind of stuff bring egos, politics and beef, and we don't want it here. Let's just talk about the music itself, okay?
As a rule of thumb, we don't care about anything on a Soundcloud, especially finished tracks.
Fuck yeah dude, you could pretty much clone a moog voyager + a few things for about the 4th of the price if you get the right components. Maybe less, I haven't really calculated the costs.
Seems cool. I don't want to troll but if you copy the moog voyager, how is the sound going to sound better than the moogvst? Isn't it better to create a midi controller wich looks like the moog?
Noted, will post it on Clyp if you like just figured since it was already uploaded to soundcloud might as well do that.
Vsts do a pretty good job of emulating the analog sound but they don't have the irregularities of analog which give it a unique characteristic. I don't recommend jumping in to analog equipment until you have a pretty firm understanding of synthesis and want to get that unique kind of sound. If you have a guitar center or similar place around you, go in and play around with some of their synths before making your decision.
>build a Moog voyager
To do that, you would need to have pretty good knowledge in coding software to control an analog circuit, along with full midi implementation, it would be a lot easier to try and clone a model D or a modular.
Gain staging and non-linear behavior of solid state circuits, especially the UJTs in the VCOs and the filter saturation.
Also, what Moog VST? There's tons of VSTs that look like Moogs that have varying degrees of quality.
Generating sound via voltage-controlled oscillators is an entirely different thing from digital software algorithms, it's not necessarily a matter of which is better but it's an entirely different way of dealing with sound generation altogether and an experience in its own right.. especially if you build the circuits yourself!
This is a really stupid question but I'm writing some basslines and seem to remember something about substituting the root note with the 9th of whatever chord you're playing.. I know jazzheads like tritone substitutions and shit but is that a thing?
Also, could someone help me identify what the bass is doing here? Maybe I'm stupid but it seems like it's rarely on the root note at all.
Somebody who isn't me would probably make a few bucks by making some sort of comprehensive CV I/O board for controlling lots of voice parameters for patch memory and voice allocation. Then you can just /diy/ the voices and build your own polysynth.
I wish something would happen to me where I lost a leg or both so I don't have to go to college anymore and can stay at home producing and making musics all day. I don't even use my legs at all besides for walking between classrooms.
I- is that ok, /prod/?
I just made this. It’s almost finished but I think it still needs something. Would like to think what your thoughts about it are!
I found a really diy breadboard shematic somewhere online but I do know that desktop units in a nice shiny case can go for a lot of money. Euro rack ones are fairly cheap for some reason though.
Oh I dont mean those 1-4 voice things with only pitch, gate, and maybe a couple of midi expression controls like after touch and velocity, and the sockets to support it. I mean a fully fledged ADC for things like panel knobs, and DAC for every voice parameter for complete voice recall, like most polysynths after the prophet 5. There's tons of control voltages those things generate per voice, way beyond what any midi-CV box I've ever seen provides. Having something like that in some sort of PCB with the ins and outs provided on header connections would be incredible.
Your post just reminded me, P.S. I'm not sure if this is allowed but whatever I've already broken the rules with posting a soundcloud
I started doing mixdowns for hella cheap because god damn everything costs so much money. $15 for a full mixdown and master because I'm a poor fuck who needs money for shiny new things
I am not sure about the song, but I will sometimes use the 9th in the bass for some chords when I try to write fusiony songs. yes it's a thing. i'm not explaining it very well but it probably occurs within a certain sequence of chords, like a desencing or ascending bassline where you can easily put the 9th in the bass of the chord and it'll make sense and sound good
after I get my degree all i plan to do is to try to live off music or at least until my savings is depleted. then i will become a vagabond and travel the world with my computer, only stopping to make music
>patents similar to everything synthesizer
Tell me more
I don't know exactly what they are, but he worked in the telecommunications industry for a long ass time so it's all pretty similar at the fundamental level.
Would give you more info, but I don't know that much about it really, never asked.
anyone know software i can use with this??

can somebody answer this on me? i mean something like and arp vst
