Anyone got more books? Anyone come across some weird/different samples lately?
>>
What do you guys think about sample-based grooveboxes like the MC-303? Would it work ok for getting an idea of hardware workflow?
>>
What /prod/ stuff would you guys get with a $50 ebay gift card?

Looks like there are sample packs on ebay, but ebay is untrustworthy as fuck for digital stuff.
>>
Is ACID by Sony a good DAW? I was considering purchasing it as it was rather cheap.

There's not a whole lot outside of digital stuff you can get for $50, I'd try replacement parts or mods for your gear or maybe a bunch of cables because you can never have too many

Do you have any tips for composing tunes?

I get great beats and awesome samples but I don't know how to move from there. If I add an instrument or something it starts sounding like shit and I get frustrated and delete everything. Care to share any advice?

>>52539468
What I started doing and really helped me is literally puting the tracks I like on the playlist in my DAW and trying to mimic the drums and then looking at the scheme, how the rhytm changes etc.
>>
hey bros so I made this: https://soundcloud.com/bojangles-5/reveries

i'm looking for feedback on the overall production. this was the first beat I've ever made so I'm pretty happy with it but i'm looking for some tips to improve my mix.

Track is weird. I didn't enjoy the mix a lot, the strings are too loud.
>>
>>52540327
yeah the strings are pretty frustrating. on my monitors they sounds great but on my headphones they sound loud. I also don't like the snare that much but it might be track fatigue from listening to it over and over lol

Does anyone know how to get their stuff to sound ominous and cavernous like this?

lots and lots of delays/tape delays, filters......

I've accomplished similar stuff by taking a "rich" kick and time-stretching the shit out of it

experimentation is the name of the name nigga

Yeah I guess so. After owning one a year or two I'd probably wake up one morning, look at the massive POS taking up 1/5th of my room and drag it out into the dumpster.

>>52538611
I have a problem with collecting electroacoustic shit, especially if it's industrial-sized and so obsolete that everything it does can now fit on a smartphone.

Hammonds, interference-tube microphones, mellotrons, etc
>>
I'm searching for a drum machine to make sum glitchy fast-paced beats (a-la Autechre) that go along my minibrute / other plugins and stuff. Of course I'd want to create my own samples by twisting and playing with the sounds a bit.

Been thinking about an Elektron's Machinedrum UW but maybe an MPC is better choice? Someone who really digs drum machines care to help?

Looking for feedback on this track.

I'm new to producing. I'm looking to buy a keyboard to play on, but I'm a bit overwhelmed by all of the options.

I use Logic and all I really need is to have a proper keyboard instead of having to use the keys on my laptop. At least I think that's all I need.

Do I need to have all those configuration knobs on the keyboard itself when they're available on my DAW?

What do you think? Advice? Recommendations?

I haven't any answer for you but i'm interested
>>
>>52537593
I work at a place that has 2. Try changing the tapes a few times and you will want the digital recreation.
>>
>>52540911
before I even had my own reliable computer to produce on I bought an electric piano to learn to play on, and like most it came with midi , so now it's also a controller for me. If you want knobs go ahead, but idk how much use they would be in the long run
>>
>>52540911
you don't need the knobs, some people do prefer to have physical ones though. Matter of preference. Just make sure if you want it for just keys, you get enough. I made the mistake of getting a 25, but would have preferred a 61/76.
>>
>>52540911
The knobs definitely help. Get a 49 key keyboard, no less. I use the alesis QX49. It's pretty good for the price, you even get 4 pads, although they aren't the greatest. M-audio are a pretty common starter keyboard. I think the knobs are worth it. It's a lot more convenient not assigning everything to 1 or 2 knobs.
>>
>>52540120
mostly samples? It's cool, where did you get your kick?

>>52540828
actually kind of dope. maybe slightly sidechain the start of every bar, because when that sample comes in the kick loses it's presence
>>
>>52540120
The kick is really cool. How did you get that stereo production from the sample?

You did it all from DAW or analogue equipment?
>>
>>52541141
>mostly samples? It's cool, where did you get your kick?

the kick is taken from the track and I layered that with a punchier kick I found in a dilla sample pack. thanks for listening :)

Hey guys, I'd totally appreciate some feedback on the track I'm working on. It's not finished, so any suggestions as far as the form and the direction of the song helps too.

I can offer some advice concerning gear/music technology in general if anyone needs.

>>
>>52541260
yeah i used ableton. i seperated the strings and the bass into seperate audio channels and eqed them appropriately. if you check out the original sample the kick and snare are much quieter. I sampled the drums in the song and boosted them up and then pasted them over the loop. probably an unorthodox way of making a beat but it worked well enough

Anyone ever do a song a day challenge? I did it for a couple weeks almost a year ago. It's really helpful especially if you're just starting out or using new equipment. Great thing is that they don't have to be great songs, just using new stuff you find in your equipment.

I want to hear the final results

How do you get that riser sound in trap music? Like in I'm in love with the Coco, and countless other tracks.
>>
>>52542070
>trap
don't
trap is fucking dead and I don't think you'll do just for the music
>>
>>52541940
Sometimes I do the reddit sample challenges, they have them in /r/edmproduction, and /r/makinghiphop.

Inb4 >reddit. It's a good place to find samples. It's important to work quick, and make throwaway tracks. It keeps things loose. I know I try hard to make tracks perfect, and sometimes that causes me to lose momentum.
>>
>>52542155
I'm just curious how to. Chill m8. I don't even make trap. I was just curious how to do it. I have too much ADD to be a trend follower. If my tracks sound like everyone else, I don't get excited enough to finish them.
