I have been thinknig I need to learn playing piano mostly for making synth sounds and I got midi keyboard that is big it is called evolution something so that part is fixed, but is there anyone here who can be mentor for me and also are there any synths people have made that I could perhaps use?
a new song ive made. didnt really think it would fit into creative work in progress since its not really in progress
haha dont even think about piano skills or theory when making synth sounds! its all about the feeling and emotion behind it, what you learn on a piano (other than notes and reading music i guess) is completely useless when it comes to most synthwork.
the best way to make synths i found was to reverse-engineer them, take them apart and see what it does piece by piece. everything has a function and if you play around you wont necessarily find it, but taking it away from something else might bring to light what it actually does
Oh i used my words poorly, i want someone to help me with learning piano (being a mentor), and in other related news i would like some synth sounds or vsts i think they are called, so my request is getting a teacher in playing piano, and also if someone could maybe share some synth sounds that i can use while making music and learning piano.
I love your song, is it going to be on youre album?
yeah im sure i could find a place for it to fit into on the album; and what DAW do you use? i might be able to share some synths
I got FL studio old version number 8, friend had license and i borrow it from him but maybe i should get newer version?
you should make place for it because song is beatiful
fuck i double posted. anyway i dont have any presets for FL i dont think, but if you ever get into reason id happily share some stuff with you
thank you Bobie
Didn't know where best to post this.
I restored that JHS Drum pad!
I cleaned up the PCB, Removed the Corrosion, Replaced the speaker with a new one as the old one had rotted (Used for detecting hits), replaced the battery clips, redid the wiring... and it works!
I may replace the jack socket as it it also quite heavily corroded.
Still need to re-foam the top.
Oh, If you ever need to clean a leaked battery.... White vinegar!
I'm recording drums in a real studio next week! Just finished the click tracks I'll be playing to, I'll post the results once it's all finished (just a heads up it's grindcore)
I'm looking into getting a laptop that's good for music production. Any recommendations? I was thinking maybe one of the HP Envy series but I'm not sure.
the only downside is the incredibly stupid cost
I have Acer Aspire 5742G and M-audio USB soundcard and except for a very small delay (that can be fixed when using DAW, just move sound forward that small delay) it works perfectly. No noise on tracks beyond the noise you get from amplifier but that cant be fixed anyway so.
€79 A great buy
Got me one of these:
So I have very little experience with FL Studio, and I'm trying to make some obnoxiously generic dubstep, but I can't get the LFO automation of my wub to work (using massive).
why is this
i might be just stating the obvious but that MOD5-RTE envelope parameter does not look like an LFO parameter.
Has this section ever had any competitions?
can you screenshot the whole massive plugin, i think i know what it is.
so yeah basically drag that green compass looking thingy, to either or both of those circled boxes.
after you do that you'll see a green number five in the box(es).
drag the number 5 up, and the filter should be able to modulate then, the higher you drag it up the more drastic the lfo will be.
you can also drag it down, and the modulation will be inverted, aka "go the opposite way".
I cannot possibly see why logic would be the best daw, that still depends 90% on your workflow. Hell, since Macs don't support vst plugins you are limiting yourself in that category.
I have 0 white noise with my Steinberg CI1 and a latency from 20-50 ms depending on how many processes I have running. It set me back only 90 bucks too damnit.
Using a properly designed professional audio interface will:
Allow you to push your sample rate up and your buffer sizes down. Decreasing Latency
Give you better AD/DA Conversion than any integrated audio could ever give you
Give you PROPER +4db balanced outputs, Which if you are playing a laptop through a professional sound system is a good thing
In the case of a laptop this will have to be external.
I suppose, then, that the people I have done work for are completely deaf, because I keep getting work.
Seriously, where did you hear this?
The noise level is completely dependent on the interface and what you have plugged into it, your software should never introduce noise into your audio. Ok at a push, a poorly grounded computer could send some electrical noise down the firewire cable but this is a problem you could face with ANY audio set up. Even if there is no computer.
Completely subjective. I have personally used it and I think it's a load of crap, but hey each to their own.
All of the above is mostly platform agnostic. Don't buy a mac "Just because it's a mac". It's not going to be advantageous in any way on the hardware side of things. If the OS works for you and your software is compatible with a mac then that is what you will buy.
I don't care if you use a mac, a windows/linux PC, an old Atari with Cubase 1 or an array of switches that you hand toggle to attain samples. Stuff like this does nothing but cause problems for people when they are building their system up.
I get 6ms total delay (Equal to standing roughly 6 feet from a sound source) through my system (In and back out) running at 48khz sample rate on my i5 windows system. This is Low enough to use a software mixer to create cue mixes.
And yes I have used a mac, extensively, with pro tools.
though i completely disagree about using an interface if you want to be professional.
Sorry for providing concise explanations so others can learn?
I was purposefully non-hostile towards you, I have no interest in pissing people off. I suppose that is hard to get across in text form.
Anybody know how to make wubs in FL Studio 10?
you can be 'professional' no matter what hardware you use to create or mix down music
My monitors arrived in the mail today. They sound AMAZING.
I have the 8 inch version of those.
They sound great, but they do kinda colour your mix. Looking into getting some Adam AX7's after hearing some good things about them/listening to them.
