>making music on Linux
Kek, good luck with that. Pretty much all of the good DAWs are exclusive to Windows and OS X.
Not as low-latency as this colonel.
DAWs are complex as fuck
there are so many functions a solid audio processor needs
linux would be beyond perfect with the minimization and dedication optimization
sadly there is no proprietary market
really the only thing keeping me on windows
Anyone used Bitwig? Anyone gotten the Linux version to use Windows VSTs?
>If it is, where should I start?
Download a lot of presets/samples
Learn the basics of melody/harmony
Add shit progressively and call it progressive
Occasionally, remove everything and start again
EnergyXT works on Linux, as well as Windows.
Bitwig studio also works on Linux as well.
Been pretty pleased with Ardour so far although I haven't done a full project on it yet. I don't really need much in a DAW besides basic plugins and features for handling that.
Bitwig looks nice although it seems more geared for electronic.
renoise mustard race
you are dumb
I know this is an EDM thread but what do you guys think about Reaper for recording instruments?
I do electronic rock
does that count?
I use primarily Ableton, but have been recently switching to BitWig. What do you guys think?
I think BitWig's FX and mixer sounds infinitely better than ableton's, and it handles recording better than ableton methinks.
Everything I run under ableton sounds muddy to me. The reverbs, delays, compressors, what have you all sound lifeless. Maybe you're right, maybe it is just me, but I'm able to get more satisfying results under BitWig in a shorter time.
Is it just me or is Ableton's send/return system just not strong enough?
I have to push the send up to the maximum to get a medium amount of reverb, whereas in other DAWs I can push the send three-quarters and get it drowning in reverb already.
You would be wrong. Most people do not consider "techno" to be in the same category as "EDM," which is what most people hear on the radio and is generally the "mainstream" form of electronic music - top 40s, etc.
Techno is a specific subgenre with specific sound, and very few people would mistake techno producers for trance producers (or other genres).
That being said, genres are dumb classifications.
i use hardware synths and can program patches so easily but when it comes to playing with digital synths and having to do things with my mouse i fucking shut down. am i an idiot? ive been able to make songs with lame presets very easily but when it comes to making patches i just can't do it. how do i into digital synths? what's a good work surface?
EDM isn't really /g/
The whore broad spectrum that is EDM is a huge shitstorm right now. There's so many talented artists that have NO listeners for no particular reason and tons of shit that is popular for no reason
Anyone ever use a ur22? been thinking about picking one up to use with my keyboard and guitars. The guy at guitar center said it was in the upper range of sound quality/bit rate or something, not sure if he was bullshitting.
alright you got me a little confused there, could you elaborate? This is how I pictured setting it up
I'm definitely not saying it has nothing to do with ideas or composition, that's the exact opposite of what I believe. I didn't even mention that in my post. All I'm saying is that music creation (on a larger compositional scale especially) has gotten way more accessible in the past <10 years. You have guys grinding out song after song after song and are making mediocre to good stuff.
>so many talented artists that have no listeners for no particular reason and tons of shit that is popular for no reason
It almost feels like a circle of friends, or just people who show a particular persons work to their friends and it just goes around. live shows, fucking meme status shit. I dunno how you get your shit out there, but those who do it's almost ridiculous cus I feel like that shit sucks a lot of the time. Not even people who are like 'uber famous~'
but people who have a decent following and get downloads/plays
MIDI Out is for MIDI information created by the device - like MIDI controllers, MIDI Thru is used to daisy chain devices and is a mirror of all of the information that appears at the MIDI input.
>It almost feels like a circle of friends, or just people who show a particular persons work to their friends and it just goes around. live shows, fucking meme status shit
EDM is memes at this point I'm not even joking
I did a modified version of your drawing to illustrate a basic setup
Remember also that MIDI is just control information - instructions to tell a device to do something - so no audio passes along the cables.
Apologies if you already know this but sometimes people get MIDI interfaces and audio interfaces mixed up. A lot of interfaces (like the UR22) have both audio and MIDI so it keeps things tidy if you're moving your kit from place to place often.
>not posting what you're working on right now
Nice sounds there.
referring to Live as "Ableton"
Oh, I liked it a lot. Congratulations.
It's so peaceful. Wondering if you mix japanese audio instead dubbed ones.
>>not posting what you're working on right now
Nice Voodoo people vibe you got going there.
I just uploaded a recently finished D&B Track earlier today.
I got so much stuff lying around, I don't even know what I should attempt to finish next. I'm bad at finishing stuff.
