Hey I'm sort of new to this, and I have a question. Do you guys usually focus on sequencing/recording first, and then making all the sounds/samples sounds like you want them too, or do you start with getting the sounds right and then sequencing? Is there a "proper" way to go about it?

Jordan Turner
Jordan Turner

No

Sounds first

Or I'll play piano and guitar to have an idea first.

No there's no proper way, unless you make experimental music in which case the answer is always sound design>>>>

I will indulge this shill core post

I love the idea personally. I don't use it personally because my sample library is already pretty decent but if I were just starting out I would pay for a couple months. Paid samples are completely worth it but buying whole packs is a gamble- splice is ahead of the curve but there will likely be more competition in he future

What are some good MIDI controllers for beginner to intermediate musicians?

I'm thinking for pads a Novation Launchpad or Push 2. Or is there something better?

Is there a small MIDI mixer and a 49 or 61 MIDI keyboard combo that complements the pads?

I'm asking because I'm not sure I want to invest in a one in all like the Akai MPK249s or Novation Launch Key, Arturia 61, Alesis VI61, etc. Unless they are good starter kits.

Any tips or websites to point me in the right direction would be nice.

I can never balance my pads properly

like no matter how much I eq, compress, stereoize, apply reberb and delay, I can never achieve a static fader level

what am I missing here?

Attached: 1405128281386.gif (1.59 MB, 256x192)

Nathan Young
Nathan Young

why would you want a "static" fader level? do you mean that you are having to automate the volume of the channel?

weird

try sidechain compression to cut out some of the density of the pad. try /fewer/ effects like reverb and delay

consider reducing the stereo field or making it really wide, rather than "stereoizing" (which i put in quotes because im not sure what method you are using, but it's possible that you're essentially doubling the signal and eating tons of room in the mix.

you might just be trying to do to much to your pads and should focus on the mix over all - ie, noting what sits in which frequency band, where things sit in the stereo field, and level etc. the pads are probably not the problem

also, consider drastically changing the patch you are using.

also, consider scrapping it all together.

Jonathan Thompson
Jonathan Thompson

why would you want a "static" fader level? do you mean that you are having to automate the volume of the channel?
static or as close as I can get to static, because every pad I listen to in a song sounds stable whereas mine are warbly as fuck no matter how much low end I scoop out
this doesn't including automation of course, I just mean the core sound itself is bouncing up and down, left and right, even in mono
I'm not using a pad as a main instrument here, so it's not got any evolving properties or filter modulation anyway
I just want it to glue to mix together, which is why I want it static, but I just can't get there

try sidechain compression to cut out some of the density of the pad. try /fewer/ effects like reverb and delay
I already sidechain everything else to the pad so it doesn't get in the way, I can still hear problems with it, I've tried A/Bing whatever effects are applied

consider reducing the stereo field or making it really wide, rather than "stereoizing" (which i put in quotes because im not sure what method you are using, but it's possible that you're essentially doubling the signal and eating tons of room in the mix.
that's what I mean when I say stereoizing, perhaps I should've said de-stereoize or monoize, if that's even a word

that pad is definitely the problem, I can never get any pad I make right
it keeps poking in and out of the mix and any way I spin the compression settings and carve out the low end it still refuses to stay at one volume for more than two seconds

Carter Harris

Trying to learn music theory and I have a question about this song

From my basic knowledge the song from the verse goes VI - i - VII - VI - i - VII - vi

Then the chorus switches to a major (?) key which is something like I - IV - III - VI

I don't know what happens in the chorus theorywise, all I know is the verse is in Cm then the chorus is all major chords but I can't if figure out what's going on, can someone explain?

I've only learned about secondary dominants and the circle of fifths from mr silver coke werewolf i dont know what this falls under

Angel Hall
Angel Hall

the core sound itself is bouncing up and down

I already sidechain everything else to the pad

Um...your pad goes up and down in level, and you're trying to fix that by using a technique that will cause your pad to go up and down in level?

Kayden Phillips
Kayden Phillips

VI - i - VII - VI - i - VII - VI*

oops

Jonathan Powell
Jonathan Powell

well what major key did it switch to? that may or may not be relevant or worth discussing

using all major chords like that is just modal interchange, otherwise known as "fuck your chords i'm just going to play whatever chord i want so long as the root is on the scale"

other than that there isn't much to explain

also wire is a cool band. that major chord thing is pretty common for punk bands like that.

Sebastian Bailey
Sebastian Bailey

share a clip of your shit so that i can give you a better assessment honestly.

if you're actually reducing to full mono, you might get weird phase issues that result in uneven volume if the original sound is very wide with modulation (including spacial fx)
and pads aren't really what you should normally be narrowing but depends onthe rest

srs, share a clip

Juan Cooper
Juan Cooper

I think it's C# minor in the verse e major in the chorus, chorus goes E - A - G - B but the third chord of the key which would diatonically be a g#min is a g major which is the thing i don't get

I know that it works I just don't get why it works

Henry Russell
Henry Russell

Good work with the subtle harmony with the pads, maybe put layers witch octaved to give a more deep reach.
I think your drums needs dinamics. Maybe some kind user can tell you how to do ir with a compression job
i like your rythm composition with that bass at mid song.
Try putting melody, maybe winds or strings with little attack.

I need help to fix this bass. And dont be rude with my shitty metal.

Isaiah Parker

We'll all that's worth pointing out os that e maj is c minors relative major.

The III doesn't have some magic explanation, it's just a borrowed chord that sounds cool.

Jackson Richardson
Jackson Richardson

I'm not too familiar with borrowed chords but the wiki page says it's borrowing from the relative minor/major

If the song is in C# minor or E major is the G major borrowed if its not diatonic to either?

Charles Flores
Charles Flores

Looking it as c# minor yes

Honestly when I see that shape of chords I don't even think of it as a transition to a major key because of the relation of the first and third chords- If somebody was playing a guitar solo there they'd be playing e minor pentatonic lol. I mean the use of an e major there specifically makes sense there because it's relative, but that doesn't have to necessarily define the key.

I have no idea what you call it but you can throw major chords all over the place like that, if you listen to a lot of punk or more interestingly, David Bowie, that music is just riddled with that idea. The most common thing to do is to take a minor scale shape and just play major chords along it and say every one that should be minor is a substitution, which is why I say I don't think of it as e major in this song even though that's what the chords would tell you.

Brayden Perry
Brayden Perry

is g major borrowed

Sorry I fucked that up I was thinking of c major

No i don't think the name for that is borrowed actually because like you said there's no g in either key- or at least I should clarify: I would think of it as c# minor and e minor. The transition using an e major sounds smooth because it sounds like we'll go into the relative major key, but really it's just doing the major minor thing I already described- so the g really isn't out of place or borrowed at all when you look at it as belonging in e minor

Michael Young
Michael Young

it depends on how you feel when you're sitting down to work on music and how you feel about the process and outcome. are you finding that it feels like a chore or that the outcomes aren't good? are your intentions not lining up with the results? it's usually worthwhile to take breaks, not even necessarily longs ones, but it's valuable to get out of the habits for a little bit and return with a slightly more open-minded approach. i would suggest taking a day or two off and just getting fuckin ripped and the nsettling back into the routine.
that said, it's a good sign when you're spitting out so much material - it means some of your skills are at a point where they don't demand too much brainpower and you can operate on instinct and habit -ie, real skill

David Williams

holy shit dude
sorry to not actually provide a useful answer but holy fuck

Gavin Watson
Gavin Watson

Initial use was purely to restrict instrument levels, to tame peaks, producers soon noticed however that when they tamed peaks they could turn up the overall instrument/voice level, so perceived loudness increased.

More recently compression is used as an effect in its own right, rhythmic gain reduction or "pumping" became a thing. In addition, many vintage compressors added their own character to a sound when saturated, so there's a tonal thing happening with the classic units.

Hudson Rivera
Hudson Rivera

dude it's such a general question about such a fundamental utility that you should have expected a lashing. i get wanting some advice about something confusing but when your question is that fucking inane you're better off with googling it a hell of a lot more than asking for user's opinions that are probably not that professional and colored by personal habits and experiences. tl;dr: no u lol

attack and release are how long it takes for the gain reduction to reach its maximum amount and then return to a zero state when the input signal crosses the set threshold. the ration is how how aggressively the gain is reduced, ie how much is reduced relative to the amount over the threshold.
ie a 4:1 ratio means if the input goes 4 dB over the threshold, the signal will be reduced to 1

now fuck off and play with the devices more until you get it on your own. ultimately no amount of technical explanation will make up for lack of experience.

the bass does sound a little weird (why did you add width to it lol) but it's acceptable.

the drums and guitar are what need the most work imo. i'm assuming you recorded these drums? sounds like you got some bad buildup in the low mids. guitar wise i'd go with a.... stronger tone. wah is cool. i can get behind the buried far away vocals for this style but i'd still bring them up a little bit. guitar solo sounds a little too far away as well- you need soooome things to sound closer lol

What you mean with "sabbath"?

I put duplicated bass one octave below to give it a sub bass sense. Zero panning.

I did recorded the drums. I used the only dinamic mic i have, i guess that explain the bad building in the lows.
I agree about the voice volume, i cannot really decide how much is enough, and maybe im trying to hide it because my own insecurity of being bad singer.
The guitar is just a draft. I should have told that. Im gonna record it with my electric guitar soon (i think is the easiest part).
Thank you very much, i will boost up my mid range.

Anyone have any good recommendations on effects to make things sound more retro? I have Molot and a few Black Rooster Audio VSTs but any more recommendations would be good to try and hit that 60s / 70s film and TV aesthetic.

I've been experimenting looking for a new direction to take the sound that I have. Very sample based, but trying out mangling the samples more for texture and a bit more of a techno/housey vibe. Any feedback appreciated.

imma be real, when i read your description i prepared for the worst, but this is actually pretty solid and now what i expected, which is always a good thing. I definitely think it needs a little bit more wiggle, some motion, possible some swing in some of the percussive sections, a little bit of variation. at about 1:40, the keys that come in can have some of the low end taken out to sit better above the kick and bass. overall i think you have some good sound design that lends movement and good textures to the repeating elements. honestly good shit, especially if you'll work on refining the mix going forward. feels very alive for a sample-based track

the micro-looped bass thing really needs some more work - it sounds mostly exactly like you're just aggressively looping and stuttering a tone rather than anything pleasant or valuable. massage it with more effects and EQ it to sit better among the other things because it's just fucking grating right now. try mking the whole thing faster to gel the textures together, because it sort of drags right now. probably use more reverbs on some of the elements.
add a higher register and high-frequency oriented lead to float over everything but scoop it so that it doesn't compete with that bass thing or take up much room in the mix.

I was asked to do it for a short film intro, my first attempt I wasn't too happy with, so I decided to research a bit and came across this thesis. Pretty helpful as finding the actual score was going to take some digging. (although supposedly the scores for all those old TV shows are available somewhere).

Josiah King
Josiah King

thanks for the feedback... but i'm completely clueless on how to do any of those xD
about the bass thing i built my whole beat around that, so i don't exactly know how to make it more melodic and pleasant because the sample wasn't melodic and pleasant at all and i didn't intend to use it to make it so
about making the thing faster i cannot turn up the tempo because in FL after you make your song you can no longer touch the tempo or it'll ruin the structure and placement of everthing especially if you use slicex... i tried fastening the drums but it didn't turn out good
i also tried adding a higher register lead but the same thing you said happened, it either overwhelms the bass or gets lost in it
what should i exactly do about these?

Noah Evans
Noah Evans

you dont need to make it "melodic" or even pleasant, but it just sounds raw. in the bad sense. ie, the sound design is really basic.

are you fucking serious? you can't change master clock in FL? i typically endorse everyone using the DAW that makes sense to them, but that's just bonkers - or you're missing a detail about how to do it?

why would a higher lead overwhelm the bass? did you try applying a HPF?

if you're asking all these questions, you just need to tinker more and figure out what works. these are generally basic songwriting elements and very basic steps to mixing that can't be troubleshot for you on a chan thread, especially since some of this is based around your own taste and creative intentions. just keep working more. it doesn't sound like you're that far along in production, so there's lots more to grow and what you've shown so far is actually pretty good. keep at it!

the sample buy-in is stupid. if you rely that heavily on samples you should be digging for your own instead of having some idiots grossbeat a 4 note melody for you.

that being said, the "rent-to-own" plugin stuff is pretty decent. Serum is a great VSTi to have on hand and there's no freeware analog that matches it. and Ozone basic is worth it too if you have no clue what you're doing when it comes to mastering. I just wish they could get more developers on board with it.

True, but some times it's good to have something high quality to start from. Especially when you're not very good yet.
For example, I like to use weird and unique sounds for mangling and sound design, so oneshots for packs can be very useful.

Loops on the other hand are almost never acceptable imo (except maybe drums some times).

Brayden Perry
Brayden Perry

so while in the example it was accurate, it didn't actually explain that it scales, so fair enough (i guess?)

the ratio of x:1 means that ever XdB that a signal goes over the threshold, only 1 dB is allowed through. so in a case of >9000:1, you have only 1 dB allowed through. this is more of a limiter at that point, ie a brickwall

don't be a smartass.

Julian Green
Julian Green

also apologies for the grouchiness. you may hve not meant to be a smartass.
I realize i made some typos, so to be perfectly clear, a ratio X:1 means that for ever X dB that an input signal goes over the threshold, only 1 dB will be allowed through.

so if the ratio is 2:1, and the signal is 8 db over the threshold, it will be reduced by 4dB

so you're monitoring on $25 cans? no shit your mix is whack. invest in monitors - for the music you're making you don't even need that much bass extension (ie, you're not making music intended for a club with giant subs), so you could get away with 5" or less monitors, setting you back like $350. you can get better cans, and that will help, but monitors will help significantly more. also referencing on multiple systems will help - your car, friends' systems, etc. you can't fix your issues without hearing them yourself, and there's no way in hell you can manage that on those cans.

Jordan Lopez

you're better off having people who are already established play your tracks. pay to promo your shit of do it like any fucking normal person who cares about the scene and make friends with folks who play out and share your tracks with them. it takes time and you have to be emotionally invested in the scene, the vibe, and the music, otherwise it's a waste of time as you get commercial, trends change, and you have to pivot. if you're part of a scene, it'll take you along.

i dont know, one thing doesnt exclude the other.
you can't underestimate word of mouth and actually physically being there.
most dj/producers make most of their money while playing out. it's relatively safe if you can make people move consistently with the music.
it takes time and you have to be emotionally invested in the scene, the vibe, and the music, otherwise it's a waste of time as you get commercial, trends change
completely agree, but you can hardly plan this out as a way of making money. you have to love it and do it for the art.
user was asking for a way to make a lot of money. i just suggested if you're going for the money you're probably better off producing music that's already hot and popular than just going for your personal favourite niche

but all in all i'd just say it's just not logical to get into the music for money. theoretically you can make money doing anything with sound or music, it all depends on how you make it, how creative you are, how you are able to ride certain waves and of course, luck and connections.
me personally, I focus solely on my self expression and honing my skills every day. that way i can't really be disappointed because I spent my time doing what i love.

what i cant hear on the k414p?

...is what Sammy asks each time over the last 12 months (probably once or twice a month) we have said "get monitors" - he's either too poor to ever be able to afford them, too stupid to realize he needs them, or just plain ol trolling this whole time.

Nathaniel Smith
Nathaniel Smith

you don't just troll for 12 months. probably a dunce.
i've written about this in a prior thread, but it's /insanely/ hard to break into this field. you likely have to be well established as a producer already, and you need to have a really solid studio rig (excellent monitors, some treatment, and some good recording equipment - this is the most easily achievable part of the whole affair if you have the funds to invest). you likely need the connections to be able to break into the most lucrative parts of the industry, otherwise you're just scoring mid-grade theater performances and indie movies and the like - things that straddle the line between cool and professional and amateurish but creative. all wholesome ventures, but not lucrative.
also you have to be constantly searching for new opportunities since you're essentially a permanent freelancer - which comes with its own stresses and ofc lack of benefits n shit like that, so depending on where you live that can be a grind too.

not to be a downer, but i've considered this path several times and after consulting with lots of peers in the industry, i've repeatedly talked myself out of it.

Delay with MIDI triggering is rarely down to the DAW, it's usually related to drivers that are being used and when using MIDI to trigger software instruments it'll be the audio interface drivers that make the most difference.

just go into your audio settings and find the device/driver it's using to play audio normally and find asio... or whatever you use

Learn each component of a synthesizer first

Hudson Gomez

can you not drag audio around to select it manually?
yes. what i'm doing is recording about 5 or 6 seconds, set loop points, listen and adjust loop points, then export the looped section

crossfades help if you get any clicks
i'll try that

the issue is that the loops i want to record are a single tone that morphs into a looping section after 1 to 3 seconds
i can either record the tone with it's intro, looping, and ending sections and have to manually set loop points every time i bring the audio file into my sampler; or ignore the beginning and end sections and cut as tight a sample as possible to create a loopable audio file with no clicking.

a preamp isn't making the different in a mix - at all. not being able to properly monitor is what's holding the mix back in this case. pretty much any widely available interface these days will have decent preamps, certainly transparent ones, which is why i didn't place any emphasis on the interface as part of the problem. i mean, maybe the dude has some garbage interface that's coloring the sound, but that seems REALLY improbable, what he needs is monitors.
a lot of it depends on your price range and your setup at home - i would recommend nothing less than yamaha HS5s but they're rear-ported, so you might be somewhat more limited in terms of installation than with front-ported monitors. if that's an issue and is space and cost are serious constrains, consider presonus eris 4.5s.
those are cheap but you seriously get what you pay for. peep this review:
noaudiophile.com/Mackie_CR3/
and lol just say you also recc'd the e4.5s lol
big ups
why grip shit that's over your head? the moog modular system here is really basic, so just look up some stuff on the building blocks of subtractive synthesis. the modular aspect might make some parts somewhat more confusing but ultimately the design of that specific system arturia emulated lends itself to basic subtractive synth sound design.
