I can never figure out what else to add to my tracks.
Why is songwriting so difficult for me?
Production and synthesis is no problem, but like ugh.
Perhaps I've stepped away from the project for too long or something.
Hey /prod/ and fellow bassplayers, what do you think about this bassline? I'm just a drummer trying to music.
Do you have any tips when it comes to create basslines?
I'll start with a question...I've been using Logic X for a while now and I'm not satisfied with any of the options for beatmaking, is it possible to make glitchy beats in a fairly intuitive manner in Logic or do I need some sort of plugin? I'm open to using another VST alltogether because frankly I'm more used to hardware and I'm not finding Logic especially efficient for making the kinds of electronic music I'm interested in
This isnt bad. For writing a bassline you can just take the lower notes of the chords you're using and play them a fifth lower. Or an octave (or a few octaves) lower, whatever sounds good.
I really like how this question can get asked without a shitstorm. In old production threads before /prod/, idiots would say shit like it "limits creativity" or think it's some sort of rule set, and fly off the handle at anyone who discussed it.
+1 for being adults
Working on rough mixes for this EP that I'm recording for a band (for a class project)
This monday/tuesday we're recording bass, sax and acoustic guitar
Holy shit this thread needs a bump.
Some Oktava mics I have constant access to.
Anybody have any experience with the Nebula 3 impulses/vectors/whatever the fuck they are?
I'm looking to get some of the tube saturation and dynamics stuff, is it really as good as people seem say they are?
It's a bit of a messy interface (which isn't surprising considering the technology), but if you are looking for *that* sound and know your way around these things, you'll be blown away.
The first time I heard the AlexB stuff it brought tears of joy to my eyes..
What are the best multi-track software's for putting all my recordings together. Also taking into account all I have are all my recordings (bass, guitars etc) sitting on my computer, and all I want to do is place them together to create a track and do whatever production is necessary for a basic song, what else am I going to need? Am I going to need mixing software and shit too?
Are like 80% of synth's presets supposed to have very light changes in pitch and timbre, kind of like if they were put through a phaser or is just something wrong with my headphones or soundcard?
The 76d limiter, 4K dynamics, tube console, just to name a few. CDSoundmasters vintage tube set is amazing as well. it's all cryptically named but it's all from classic gear, CL76, SSL 4000, Neve etc.
It's like cabinet responses but for full hardware units. It's a very, intricate form of sampling that sort of turns into a dynamic impulse process - what you're left with is the full range of a hardware processing unit. You'll want the respected 3rd party developers like AlexB, as these guys don't just turn the knobs and sample it into responses, they are experienced engineers who open up the insides and carefully "sample" each part and stage of the unit.
It's a bit of a mess to set up, basically the linux version of vsts (you'll have one "impulse set" for each ratio setting of a compressor, for instance, it gets worse with EQs), so it helps if you're already experienced with advanced audio processing. But it's soo worth it. If you need a bit of analog fairy dust on your mixes for cheap you simply can't do any better.
