This is an attempt to lead the discussion towards something topic related.

>>
>>61964469

I enjoy making music more at night when everything is quiet and I've already spent some time being alert.

Having said that some of the better stuff I've played in the past was when I've had to get up real early to travel to a studio - in one instance the road to the studio was snowed in pretty much and we had to walk the last mile after our car got stuck, the annoyance induced by that seemed to bring something out.

So yeah, I enjoy comfy but sometimes comfy makes for less risk-taking, it's worth looking at what you can come up with when you're rushed, or irritable or even when you just can't be arsed.

There's a certain subset of musicians, electronic or otherwise, who can't be assed to fuck with a computer when they want to write or preform music.

Macs are dead simple to operate (as I'm sure you know), therefore negating the need for most types of assorted high-level computer tasks in order to lay down a track.

Just my two cents.

>>61968636
also the bass synths are resampled stabs from various packs and files around my pc, some were made in massive some were made in operator, they involve automating macros to various cutoff filters/amps/whatever you wanna automate

resampling is how you get bass like this, make shit midi bass, bounce it to audio, add effects, warp the sound, bounce to audio again and repeat.

To everyone working with a daw:

>>61970452

>>
>>61970452
PT here
>structure
region markers for song parts, markers as to-do lists
>name
useful channel names of course
>color
master bus red, groups orange, reverb returns light blue and delay returns cyan, the rest gets what ever color it gets
also I use multiple workspace layouts on keyboard shortcuts when mixing to display or hide specific instrument groups, otherwise you'd get fucking lost in a huge project in PT's piece of shit mixer

Is it okay to have different BPMs across the album or does that ruin the cohesiveness of the project?

>>61971395
No, you have to try hands-on experience. Get to doing that ASAP. The actual craft of making music you'll find is much different than the theoretical level of being taught stuff.

Hi, Guys I have i question i might ask but is there a way of making reverb not sound like a reverb?
>>
>>61972400
Elaborate pls.
>>
>>61972400
what do you mean?
like short reverbs or metal sounding delay? or something more natural?
>>
>>61972460
Something more natural.
>>
>>61972476

Convolution reverb with a room impulse instead of a plate or a hall.

The Lexicon Ambience preset also is good at this.
>>
>>61972476
Like, get a better reverb with a more natural emulation algorithm?
>>
>>61972476
I use Adobe Audtion's convolution reverb effect to make subtle reverb, It's very precise. There should be a plug-in out there that is similar to this
>>
>>61972580

AltiVerb is my go-to convolution reverb but I also still find myself using Waves Trueverb for some things - old as it may be it still sounds nice to me.
>>
>>61972689

I need to pint out that Trueverb isn't a convo reverb, but you can still use the early reflections to produce some natural sounding rooms.
>>
>>61972346

i've been hearing a lot about resampling synths, not really sure how that works though

i use fl studio atm

how would i go about making a cool synth out of multiple resampled synth layers in fl studio?

any advice is cool but a detailed explanation of your method would be best and i would be really fucking thankful

thanks

I would get the machine replaced first desu then monitors because imo its no use when your shits gonna pop anyways

>>61974399
i can give you a sorta guide but the thing with resampling is that there isnt really a set path, its similar to synthesis in the sense that if you dont have a sort of sound in mind when your creating it you are kinda just shooting in the dark, not that that is neccessarily a bad thing, but it is easier imo to funnel your creativity. listen to music that has a similar synth to what you want and consider what sounds you can hear within the synth.

for example, often a way people start going about making their synths is by detuning 2 oscillators by .25 and slightly phasing the two osc's, this makes a generic sort of reese bass that people often use as a starting point.

from there you will want to load it into a sampler and begin to try to realise your goal from the starting point.

a big thing is that

>you cant polish a turd

so you will want to get your synth noise relatively clean before you start destructing it.

by destructing it mean the idea of putting that noise into a sampler and playing with the loop settings, its ADSR and its reverse/sustain settings until you have a seamless loop. ive seen videos where people also make the sampler use a very small portion of their synth noise and cut it so that its in a TINY perfect loop so there is a sustained rumble. crop that sample and bounce it to audio, then put it in another sampler. here you will want to, again, try to realise your sound goal, by now you should have a single audio sample that is contructed of a scale of the original sample. it should "resemble" the original but it doesnt have to. from here you will want to distort your sound, so, distortion plugins, reverb, phasing automations and just monitoring their interactions as the sound evolves and once you hit a point where you enjoy your sound, either keep it and you're done, or put it back into a sampler to start again.

you can get some seriously nice noises by just layering random noises, trial and error will get you there.

One word my friend, Harmor!

>>61974440
Yeah.

>>61976495
Minilogue's awesome.

>>61977065
Compressor?

>>61978561
If you're by yourself not at all.

>>61979115
Yeah, but routing everything through a computer opens up a huge amount of possibilities desu senpai.

>>61980634
Get FL Studio, it's great and has an amazing variety of built in synths and effects. Start messing around with it immediately after you get it, google stuff and watch tutorials. Also Seamless has some very nice tutorials on FL Studio that go wayyyy beyond what you think you can do with it.
>>
>>61980805
>Also Seamless
he makes shitty music though.
unfortunately.
>>
>>61980829
Yes I agree, but his tutorials about sound design and how to stretch out FL's possibilities are really good.
>>
>>61980842
yes they are that's why it's so unfortunate.
I learned a lot about fm synths from the guy.
He's incredible in-depth about pretty much everything, while other people just tell you how to achieve stuff he really tells you how stuff works.

>>61980842

Sadowick's for Ableton are pretty great actually!

What
I mean how can you hear it's not just auto pan when it might as well be just auto-pan. It sounds the same
>>
>>61981717
I'm not that guy but it's panning and there is something effecting wave since it's some sort of wavetable choir sound.
>>
>>61981717
It doesn't sound the same at all. The panning and LFO are not synchronized and that leads me to believe it's two separate effects.

How to mix without monitors?
Spectrum or?

In process of setting up a home studio - I'm proficient to advanced in Logic Pro X. Here's my setup, tell me what mistakes I made:

27" iMac
Logic Pro X (with hundred of $s of additional plugins)
Novation Launchkey 49
Audio Technica AT2020 Condenser Mic
Apogee Duet interface

how am i doing? what sucks and what else do i need?
>>
>>61983519
no monitors??
>>
>>61983519
oh and AIAI Tm-2 studio headphones....i live in an apartment so I'm not sure I can really get monitors without causing a ruckus
>>
>>61983541
you can, you dont have to play shit that loud, mixing without monitors might be tough though, some headphones (i dont know particularly about yours) don't translate at all
>>
>>61983564
i as wondering if that was the case - i suppose you're right - going to at least try mixing with my headphones first and see if i can get away with it - not super hopeful about it but i'll try
>>
>>61983622
you can always use references when mixing on shitty headphones to see how the stuff sounds like
>>
>>61983652
true - any suggestions for good value monitors?

What do you think of it?

>>61983007
The vocals samples sounds a bit odd, maybe too high-pitched idk
It's nice, reminds me of the avalanches

>>61980334
nice track

>>61979497
Nah we're not ready

>>61974658
I like it
Sounds very dry
I think i'd like to hear more effects on your keys and pads

>>61972346
>>61973194 is right
>>
>>61983519
Headphones is fine.
>>
>>61983825
they're studio headphones and i'm making a lot of soundscape stuff with binaural panning, so i feel like i'd honestly do well with headphones...getting mixed responses here though
>>
Any piano autists here? Is the Roland F-140 a good buy over Kawai es-100? Costs a bit more but looks much better and has an lcd screen and an usb port (though my interface has midi ports so it's not a big deal).
>>
>>61983788
id say krk rokit 8s or NS10s but u gotta get used to those
>>
>>61983788
Yamaha HS7 are reputedly very neutral sounding at the entry level price point.
>>
>>61983861
I'd love to hear your stuff.
>>
>>61983863
It has better sound overall as well.
>>
>>61984021
Truly? The Kawais has each of the 88 keys sampled and has been lauded as the best sounding and feeling piano in its price range.
>>
>>61984085
Adding to that: the Roland on the other hand has over 300 sounds, so one might think they are of lesser quality. Though I guess the basic piano sounds should be better.
>>
>>61983863
I have a Roland FP7 and a Kawai MP11 and while I like the old(ish) Roland better in terms of piano sound holy shit the mechanics of the Kawai are just incredible. IMO it feels even better than a Nord Stage
>>
>>61984187
But the MP11 has a different action to the es-100.
>>
>>61970452
>Do you structure / name / color stuff in your projects?
Yes.
Groups, colors, names.
Structure is good.
But sometimes I ignore all that to spice things up.
I usually end up cleaning up the projects in the end though.
>>
>>61984228
I'm sure it has. but from my experience it's going to be awesome as well, because all the Kawai keys I ever touched were pretty sweet, I think they really put a lot of effort into making the action feel good and similar throughout the products. Even on my parents' old ass thing (CA91 I think) that I haven't touched in 5 years I felt instantly 'at home' when playing on it at christmas
>>
>>61980829
B-But bass.
I like his music, but imo his sidechaining is way too hard.
This track though https://soundcloud.com/bt/unshakable-bt-and-seamlessr
And his electro shit is great https://soundcloud.com/seamlessr/seamlessr-truck-puncher
>>
>>61984085
I preferred the Roland sound desu.
>>
>>61983789
>https://clyp.it/ixdumpqg

I think this might be better with the guitar-that-sounds-like-it's-yelling being a little louder, since it seems like the "main" part of the track.
I'd make the "dooo" sound effect slightly wonkier or even more subtle and quieter. I really like the way you did the drums. With the panning and what not. I'd just make them a little punchier. Overall, very expressive and powerful. I like it!

sup /prod/ can someone either give me some tips or point me in the direction of a template to send promoters on behalf of some people that im i guess managing now?

we've basically got contact info for people in charge of festivals and stuff and i just wanna try and get them a spot and all that. but i want to be all professional about it.
>>
>>61985064
I dont think a template is a good idea if you're dealing with serious people, to be honest it's pretty disrespectful to send mass templates to people, makes you look really unprofessional.
Tell them who you are, what do you do, why do you think your artists would be a great addition, keep it formal, but don't make it too formal, and try to be as positive as you can.
>>
>>61985124
Not you, but also use business cards with a link to your soundcloud or something with a demo reel could work. Business cards should be socially accepted if the recipient asks for it, and then he can go search out your stuff him or herself.
>>
>>61985124

right on. i meant more of just something i can grab ideas off of, not one thing i could mass send out. i figure to put in past shows/sizes of crowds, and any other achievements they have in there as well.

would anyone be willing to take a look at their epk? its got a lot of good stuff on there but its also 9 pages and i dont know if thats too much or what

I think the little melodic sound should have more release

it sounds too short and out of place
>>
>>61964806
you're just switching between two chords and you can't do that for 2 minutes without it getting boring. at least mix them up a little bit, play some inversions or try to extend it to a 4 chord progression

the samples you used seem alright though

somebody is selling this thing for $20 near me, it says in the manual that the detector input "allows for the operational characteristics to change in correspondence with the signals arriving from the external source"

that means sidechaining right?
>>
>>61986184

Yeah, the detector input is a direct link to the sidechain.
>>
>>61986223
nice, i've been wanting a way to sidechain stuff in my hardware setup for a while now and i definitely didn't think it would come this cheap
>>
Is it just me or is U-he not all that?

The synths can be kind of cool, but they're over hyped and I can't put my finger on it but the synths all have a similar kind of sound to them, a kind of buzzy mid-range in the saws and squares. Anyone else hear this?

Same with Serum, a lot of hype and I just don't think it's that great. Sounds very "glossy" and you need to turn on a heap of effects to make it sound pretty good.
>>
>>61986255

It looks like you have a basic gate there too, so you can use one signal to open the gate that acts on another signal - common use is to use hihats or synth pulses to create stuttered vocal effects.
>>
>>61986377
or know the basics of how the synths actually work
>>
>>61975522
>>61980805
>using Harmor for resampling synths
it seriously reduces the quality of the original sample tho. any alternatives would be appreciated.
>>
so I downloaded this 7gb "Komplete D15" torrent and am I right that I need to download almost a 10gbs of Komplete installation and instrument packages just to run them in unity? I though "D15" was a version but it actually means DVD15 (out of 20+). What the fuck. I just want a good piano and good strings vsts that I can drop in FL studio damn it, not fill up my hard drive just to play a couple of instruments.
>>
>>61983789

added a screamy snare
>>
>>61986377
>>61986438
Pretty much this. If your sounds all sound the same, chances are you're not trying hard enough. Zebra is one of the most diverse synths around.
>>
>>61987303
just get kontakt if you don't need the rest of komplete, because it will eat up your free space like crazy if you get the whole suite of programs

Guys, are there any advantages to using an analogue synthesizer over a MIDI controller? I tried recording my Microbrute with an interface and it's just so inconvenient compared to using a MIDI controller.

Someone adviced me to get an Interface kit for home recording and i found this kit for about $250. Looks like it has some good reviews, but i plan on getting a Shure mic in the near future as well. I'd still like some feedback before i make my decision

uh, figure out what you're trying to ask and ask again. you don't master vocals.

goes to show how much i dont know. mixing is the term i believe im headed towards

>>61989464

hey guys, anybody know anything about dithering HD bit samples? i've switched my internal DAW routing from interlaced to metric but I'm still struggling with the background noise.

please respond
>>

the character of the sound will certainly be different but its ultimately a matter of preference. it's like the idfference between vinyl and CDS
>>
>>61989158
I've used it before and it was pretty reliable. Nothing special but it does the job.
>>
>>61983007
>https://clyp.it/wkdlgah2
I like it, the samples need to be trimmed up a bit/reverberated and the drums need to not be so on the forefront. More variation in the drum patterns would also do it well.
