skream just released the worst tune of the year.
How have the mighty fallen.
I don't want to sound like an asshole but I could make a tune like that.
gib chant sample pls
No, I would never consider dropping Arca tune in the club.
Therefore Arca is not /bleep/.
thats not my fault, it must be clyp.its compression algorithm. for some reason the intro appears louder on the waveform on the clyp but in reality there is a lot of dynamic range throughout the song as i hate brickwalled masters.
>gib chant sample pls
no one is getting the id for that. im not even going to clear it, its that obscure.
haha holy shit. i own the actual vinyl though. guess i will have to clear it. its pretty obscure though so i dont imagine that it would be that expensive
>only plebs sample from youtube as the quality is so shite.
>>implying that prod knows what they are talking about
well, there are some experienced people in there, you know.
>>implying mastering can be done at a pro level by mere mortals
depends on what you call "pro level" but it can be done on your shitty laptop way better than that guy did it.
>well, there are some experienced people in there, you know.
i agree with that but most dont have a clue and can actually give you wrong advice based on their limited knowledge.
>mate no pro producer actually 100% masters his own stuff.
>that guy obviously posted a work in progress which was obviously unmastered and had an unfinished mix just to get opinions
>no one can master on shitty laptop speakers.
i bet your the type of guy who thinks mastering is the same thing as mixing. most of the time a track will get mixed then will lay dormant until the full ep/lp/etc is finished and the mastering engineer will master all songs together to get a cohesive sound and dynamics throughout the whole release.
yes you can buy izotope or whatever to master in the ox but it will sound no were near as good as a pro mastering engineer would
It takes time and dedication but you can learn audio engineering basics and get some basic equipment and FUCKING DO IT FOR YOURSELF.
Mastering isn't magic, it's just easy to fuck up.
>i agree with that but most dont have a clue and can actually give you wrong advice based on their limited knowledge.
I couldn't agree more tho.
mate your talking to me as if i dont know what im talking about. simple fact is that i dont want to master my own tunes and would rather get the guy who is passionate about mastering and is really fucking good at it to do it.
honestly all labels will have a mastering studio either inhouse or have a working relationship with one. all pro /bleep/ tunes are mastered by specialists. do you think anyone at hessle did the final mastering for their releases?
i know i could learn how to do it (i already know how to do it) but why be the jack of all trades when you can be the master at one.
>i dont want to master my own tunes
I'm well aware that all labels use "specialists" to master their shit, as some of our stuff was released by a label and they asked us to don't even attempt to master it ourselves.
I'm kinda mad about this though, it ain't that much of a hassle and it makes me feel neat that I did everything about my tracks - even if they sound inferior compared to "professional masters".
>why be the jack of all trades when you can be the master at one
isn't it best to get someone else to master it purely to have a different set of ears on it? even if you are a top-of-your game mastering man, you still go to someone else usually, no?
at least that's what i've heard rashad becker say... but then he mastered his own record so who knows what's going on lmao
wow you sure proved me wrong there. i forgot burial has really clean and shiny perfect mixes without adding noises to hide the digital artifacts in his songs.
dude even admits this in interviews
>isn't it best to get someone else to master it purely to have a different set of ears on it?
almost always yes.
are you sure becker mastered his own or if it was someone else at d&m
Anyone else love this? Pretty bangin' if you ask me
One hour and a half of deep/dub house and minimal goodness. The guy's label seems to be very interesting, and it also features the A-side of U-More's (Cabaret Recordings) next release.
Thanks, I will check those
Any man planning on going to Dimensions? Line up sounds nice and since I can't make it to Dekmantel, might as well go somewhere else this summer.
I think I preferred it how it was before.
why though? it was a basic wip, it wasn't mixed, the bass sounded shit, there was no movement through the track moving into the next section. the vocals the same, just has some processing on some parts. i think it sounds much better now
this track is literal marmite. some people hate it, and some people love it.
Well am I right in thinking you've changed up the way the vocals are chopped since the previous version? In this version it doesn't seem to lie over the beat as well, like the timing of the vocal doesn't seem to fit as nicely with the 4/4 of the drums underneath it. Certain accents of the vocal fell on certain beats in the previous version that made it sound nicer. Unless you haven't changed it and I'm imagining all of this.
I prefer better music lol
You're going to one of those?
I'm planning my trip, but that's not cheap. 500€ just for plane + festival and camping ticket. I'll have to save for a couple of months if I want to go there.
i've been to dimensions once and outlook twice in the past 2 years, not gonna go again.
yes it is expensive. as a rough estimate, it cost me £900 for this year when we just went to outlook. worth it though, honestly...that feeling of walking onto the beach party in the first couple of nights, or walking round that corner in the moat...worth every penny
>lofi master race
shitting up your ix because you dont have the skill to make a good mix. unless you are using hardware their is no excuse for lo-fi unless your trying to hide your ineptitude
i dunno why people get so high and mighty over lo-fi stuff
>yeh m8 delroy edwards is shit hes just unskilled
lmao alrite lad would like to see you put out a track that goes off like 4 club use only or something. minimal masterpiece tbh
>implying shit like syro isn't mostly (all?) hardware and isn't also hi-fi as fuck
mate minimal is not lo-fi
the unknown artist RAL series is a master piece of minimal and its mixed to perfection. delroy Edwards is not lo-fi, hes minimal. using analogue gear doesn't make you lo-fi
are you serious lmao
i didn't say minimal is lofi
i said delroy is lofi and 4 club use is a minimal masterpiece
learn 3 read :)
do you honestly think that drums that spanking would be at that low of a bitrate?
no one likes digital artifacts. total harmonic distorion from analouge gear is nice and warm, thats were the lo-fi comes from not digital samples.
"Lo-fi (from the term "low fidelity") is lower quality of sound recordings than the usual standard for modern music. The qualities of lo-fi are usually achieved by either degrading the quality of the recorded audio, or using certain equipment."
i think the part about distortion here is what's important m8...delroys music is obv distorted/saturated as fuck (as you said yourself), which makes it lofi regardless of digtial sample r8
i think our definitions of lo-fi are different. i'm no production wizard and i don't pretend to be, when i say lo-fi i mean stuff like this
LACR CONFIRMED HI-FI LABEL OF THE YEAR 2015
MOVE OVER RASTER NOTON
Ital is not /bleep/.
Go clubbing some more, you melon.
/bleep/ is about club culture, not electronic music.
What other reason is there to go clubbing by yourself, you melon?
I wish there noise club around here.
It's always just a bunch of one-off events, because noise is apparenly too weird.
Also I would totally drop Itabashi Girl in the club.
Do you guys know what he sampled there?
Solid tune, would drop.
I've yet to drop this at a breakcore night, I really should do it the next time play one.
It seems like the kinda tune you'd open a set with.
