Re: any1 kno any good riddim style bass tutorials for reason

I'm not "blaming" anybody for anything - like I said I find it funny

It is an Americanism though....

Re: Is Trash 2 worth the money?

Some people buy plugins purely because if they didn't, there is no incentive for developers and companies to come up with new and innovative ways of processing audio to give new and innovative edges to music and sound design. If somebody like you ran the country we'd be down the pan in a year! I wen...

Re: London collab??

Always up for a collab! :R: Where abouts do you live? As Turnipish Thoughts said, Monkixx (Steve) who I’ve met up with before is another one who is always up for it and your tunes would fit in really well with his label (Route 1 Audio). Take a listen to my stuff (most my good/releasable tunes aren’t...

Yeah I'm not sure I'm hugely into the sound either but it'd be fun for playing around with mates and also I just bought a house and I think it'd look pretty sitting in my studio :W:

Re: Different Aliases

i think that the way you 'brand' yourself or the aesthetic you create is pretty important. if you look at jon gooch, he has different aliases for different genres and each alias has its own feel, character and brand. now, he is a very talented and legendary producer, but i believe that the smartest...

Re: Mixing overheads- Noisia, Break, DLR, Octane style

Overheads are microphones placed above the kit. They capture more of a “room” sound than the mics which are placed next to the drums. It’s pretty much the equivalent of using tight reverb and mixing that into the dry signal. You use it in the same way that you would any send effect. Get the drum sou...

Different Aliases

I wanted your opinion on using different aliases / producer names. I have my Ascian name which has built up quite a following online... 800k views on YouTube etc. My issue is that I've never sent anything to labels and now I've built up a bit of a mess of different genres of music on my Soundcloud e...

Re: Music distribution / free tunes

Just as a word of warning... Your Clubfoot tune on Soundcloud still says "Free Download" in the name. Not sure if it's actually still up for download as just on my phone but it's probably a good idea to remove the download function and put a link to Bandcamp in the description. What synths are you u...

Here's my newest. Looking for recommendations on how to "finish" it off and any general comments on the track and mixing (mix not complete). https://soundcloud.com/ascian-1/cyborg-onslaught dotcurrency - Really like the use of samples in the intro and the kick is a really subtle but good driving for...

Re: Freq. specific sidechain(peak controlling)

It is a lot easier than all these suggestions... Just stick any multiband compressor with a sidechain input on the track you want to compress - restrict one of the bands to 170 - 220 Hz (to taste) and aim it at the snare track!

Re: Reverb: During Production VS Mixdown?

It's pretty simple really. If the reverb is going to be a "feature" of the sound and is part of the sound design process (will usually be longer reverbs, say over 1 second) then incorporate it into your production work. Any other use of reverb, whether it be gluing, ambience, moving back in the mix,...
