Re: Having trouble trying to get your music noticed?

Basically what Gurnumsbug said. Too many people work on getting their artist name around instead of working on their sound. Just because you can get promotion doesn't mean shit. You can accumulate thousands of facebook & soundcloud followers but to get genuine fans who respect you as an artist is di...

Re: How to make your HP bass thicker?

Basically, grab the tune, throw it in your daw, and throw on any spectrum analyzer you have and look at the peaks of the sound. Usually where there is a strong peak, there is a fundamental sound underneath it. Try to copy the sound by using the visual and building it like that.

Re: Has Anyone Done This Before?

If you're in this for the long run, might as well get into the groove of treating music production like a job and making yourself follow through with stuff. Sure, not everything is gold, but if you force yourself, you'll end up learning a lot more in a shorter time than only producing when inspired.

Re: Bassweight Chicago

Hey, do you guys book local talent? No venues around that do occasional dubstep shows. Trying to start locally here in Chicago is a bit tough if you're not making house.

Re: Kick / Bass Layering

Okay, so this is kick theory. What gives the ear the impression that the kick is weighty is the punch of the kick. It's snappy and loud and it transitions right into the low end like a normal kick would do sweeping down frequencies. There isn't much low end to the kick in the tune. I would suggest f...

Re: Influence

My biggest influence is from what I'm drinking. Seriously. No jokes. Like Tea gives me a summer vibe, and I'll end up making something funky if im having some tea. Or if im having coffee i'll usually do something aggressive. :corndance:

Re: The Official Growl Bass Thread

Bassline from a tune im working on. https://soundcloud.com/makro-official/growl-bass/s-Wb71Q There's a few things i've learned to give a growl that really edgy grit. 1) Flangers. Holy fuck. Just play a note, add a flanger, and bounce out like 4-5 cuts of that one note. Gives it that swing, and you c...

Re: That Joe Ford Massive patch

Carbon, Wicked, & Scrapyard all yield that neurofunk twisting sound. Some pitch bending and a little phasing is probably the key to these monster sounds.

Though I must say, joe must do some heavy resampling, because that patch sounds like absolute shit.

Re: Bass Drop

Best to make one patch, and then stem the rest of the other patches off of that original patch.

All about the flow.

Re: The Reese Bass Thread

Hey guys, I've got a question. I'm sure somewhere in this thread it has been brought up, but lately I've been overly attached to FM synthesis. It fascinates the fuck out of me. I was wondering if the same concepts of making a reese could be applied to FM synthesis? I've been having a go at it for a ...

Re: How many of you actually resample?

I used to resample, but I found an couple of problems with resampling. Not resampling itself, but its impact against my workflow. With resampling I could get caught up bouncing audio and spending more time engineering a certain sound, instead of writing the tune, and I usually get frustrated or side...
