I've been challenging myself to produce using only Ableton 9's built in studio and effects and so far it's been very good for me.

I'm still getting the hang of mastering stereo panning, but practice makes perfect.

Well you can get sound out of it if you want, and I'm guessing he thought it would be cool to make his heart an instrument.

Lol, I know what you mean, but it's totally not that bullshit tier stuff. You know those little obstacle course games where you put the headband on and the more you concentrate, the more air is blown and the ball raises? It's something like that.

Technically he's making his lungs an instrument.
A pulsox can't measure heart rate, it can only extrapolate it using blood oxygenation levels.

How do I make sweet dub mixes like this? I have a mixer that can do this type of routing, but is there a way I can avoid shelling out the dough for an interface with 8+ channels of outputs?
>>
>>52238924
not really, or you could buy loads of cheap old shitey cassette tape players and record every track to a casette and play them that way, or maybe CDs or whatever is the cheapest form of media storage

>Tipper is amazingly amazing
I don't like his music that much but from a production standpoint, that sound design is god tier. I'm curious to know how he did all that, there was probably a lot of sampling and recording involved.
>>
>>52239102
I'm pretty sure they're prerecorded tracks, that or he's dubbing a live band, which doesn't seem right. The tape is done in realtime, he assigns tape to a mixer channel so he can feed it back in to the tape machine.

Moogs aren't fun to sequence if they're old ones. You need to make a special cable to make it work with anything not Moog.
>>
>>52238599
Can anyone give me a bit of advice, I'm a bit confused as to whether to buy something like the Akai MPD32 for use with logic and its EXS24 sampler or something like Machine or Akai renaissance?
As far as I'm aware all these machines are hardware controllers for software samplers. (Apart from obviously the Ren having a audio interface)
It doesn't seem like anyone seems to actually talk about the software thats bundled with these machines because they are too busy waking on about workflows and how amazing they are?
What do you guys think?

My latest classical-psytrance-nu-jazz-ambient project.
What I was trying to do is make the percussion's rhytm extremally ungroovy, cold and incisive, almost unfitting to the rest of the track. It's not done yet, needs some volume automating and mastering. Well, any kind of constructive criticism would be appreciated. ^_~

>>52242137
does this really fall into the vaporwave genre? Wasn't trying to do that, not really that familiar with vaporwave

>>52241946
Those fart sounds are horrible, filter that shit.
Change the Piano syth to a dance lead.
>>
>>52242198
Call it Vaporwave, Muzak or soulless garbage, whichever you like best.
Vaporwave implies that you're totally DEEP and artsy, so I'd go with that.
>>
>>52242198
kinda. wonky ambient more like, but that's in some respects already vapourwave
>>52242250
wow cool those jets ladoo

any actual criticism?

>Change the Piano syth to a dance lead.
Nah, m8 I need to invent a way to make piano sound good with electronic drums and shit like that.I've barely heard anyone doing it right so I treat it as a quest of my life.
>>
>>52242700
Simple melodies, sidechain compression and sustain pedal.
>>
>>52242700
Heavy gain and chorus makes my piano work in most cases I need, but most people aren't fortunate enough to have an acoustic grand piano, or even an amplifier.
>>
>>52242767
>sustain pedal
Yeah, that's exactly what I need. Too bad the best way I could find for it is automating the sampler's decay. Got a better idea?
>>
>>52242821
Compression.

Or find a piano VST.
>>
>>52242808
So you own an acoustic grand piano? Must feel great to hear the real reverb and key pressure. I can't really play a piano tbh ;_;
>>
so i've been wanting to try my hand at remixing and production... what should my first step be?
>>
>>52242915
Google.
>>
>>52242915
i'd say find a remix contest on http://www.remixcomps.com/ for instance that suits you, download the stems and start messing around?
>>
>>52242871
There's nothing like having a real piano, the way the strings respond to the hammers, and each other. The Nord stage is the best alternative, and it doesn't even compare. What's nice about it having pickups is that when I'm playing though a distorted amp, I still have the clairity of the acoustic sound that rings through the top end.

This piano melody sounds insanely familiar.
>>
>>52243332
What he does with his sound is pretty cool but the way he plays is too sloppy. Romantic era classical chords and harmonies is what makes piano a beautiful instrument imho.
>>
>>52243546
you've heard this before
>>
>>52243710
The tune or the melody?
I suspect that I've heard both.

That's very far away from my idea of how piano should be played.

That really soft change in pitch between 0:13-0:16 though.

I'm trying to load a 32-bit VST (VOPM) on Logic and I can't find any way to do it. The two plugins that I thought would work (Patchwork and Metaplugin) only support 64.

Best VST wrappers/joint plugins for Macs?

one of the worst things ive ever heard in my life
>>
>>52244261
No, I went through the installation and everything and it's just not showing up in Logic at all.
>>
>>52244309
this is where it gets really shit

restart computer
start jBridge BEFORE DAW, make sure you're starting the 32 to 64 bit version, or 64 to 32 if that's what you need
then start the DAW and as I remember all the plugins are in a folder/menu thing named something like '32 bit ports'

what's your favourite compressor that you've had the privilege of using?

So it's avant-garde music, am I right?
>>
is there an upside to sidechaining from the send?
>>
>>52245156
more like random notes with no sense of purpose whatsoever that will not evoke anything in the listener but awareness of how little effort into making a good track the producer put in
>>
>>52244822
no, not even close
takes more than just being unlistenable by today's standards
