Intro to Synthesys (video):
practice. write a lot of tunes.
always worth spending that extra time to make a track killer. any less than 5 hours spent on a track, it probably isn't going to be that good.
Sounds nice, would probably fit as the soundtrack for an anime or video game. Ends a bit abruptly though. Where'd you get that twinkle sound and how did you make that background pad, I'd like to make something similar.
pretty good production-wise. I felt the panning synth panned too much. kick and bass are pretty good in the mix though, they dont interfere with each other.
the twinkle is a "bell tree"
Whelp I'm having some trubble with my new interface.
I've been through interface hell lately:
-Mbox blows up from (presumably) shorted phantom power
-Have to find replacement but have no money, replace with Alesis iO Hub for $50 (works fucking awesome what a steal!)
-After couple days Input 2 just dies, so have to upgrade to an M-Audio... now costing me a hundred bucks.
-Works awesome except with a particular pair of mics. All hell breaks looks when I try to use them... which is especially shithouse because THEY'RE BRAND NEW AND WORK FINE WITH MY OTHER PREAMPS.
I was just looking for advice on the production end, but thanks anyway.
Thanks, I guess the kick and bass working together well was kind of a nice coincedence, I didn't focus on that too much. And you're right, I that was a chime tree. It's really a nice sound.
I don't have that kinda cash, and also I was returning my Alesis and had to choose from what they had in stock as an exchange.
Also the Focusrite works fine on Windows or Mac, as does the M-Audio. Problem is something to do with the phantom that doesn't agree with those particular mics but they work fine with all my other preamps - even one of them I set to 24v and it worked fine so idunno.
