Re: Is it just me or is soundcloud dead?

With the changeover in their setup/layout I almost never open SC any more: I used to open it daily and found great tracks - now all I get is a bunch of house bullshit and mediocre sponsored mixes. Still viable as a hosting platform for embedding, but not something to spend time on. lmao... every po...

Re: (Advice) Getting to the next level in music production

Try googling top 40 pop songs and then try finding an acapella for it on acapellas.eu and then remix it in a popular genre. 2009 - 2012 was dubstep. Right now it's either Big Room or Trap. Put it on Youtube/get it on a promotion channel and see how it goes. Play it in your set and see how it goes.

tfw you're tired of hearing the same damn track

TFW you've spent every day of the past week and a half trying to just get a vocal to mix into the track and you've heard the same damn track over and over and over again!

Re: Monitors or treatment?

depends on size/shape of room. 8 inch cones are going to put huge bass reflections in a small room, especially if it's rectangular. if you had the 5's i would say go for treatment. but since you have the 8's i would flip those, get some equator d5's and acoustic foam. I owned a pair of equator d5 t...

Re: How to get a punchier kick (WITH PICS GUIDE!)

This is pretty solid, I do this a lot with samples, not just bassy sub kicks, ultimately it preserves the attack of the kick, or snare if you got it hitting more than once too fast. I feel the reason for this is because it's just instantly releasing. Also lets a compressor or transient designer rel...

Monitors or treatment?

So I want to take my mixing to the next level. I think I know enough technically to make a good or decent mix but it's the representation of the music that's holding me back. I have the KRK Rokit 8s and I've heard they aren't the best monitors to go with in the 500$ range. I can either invest in tre...

How to get a punchier kick (WITH PICS GUIDE!)

WOW! I just figured out how to make a punchier kick when your main 808/bass note is at 40-45 hz!!! I've always had this problem when making songs with basslines that fall in the frequency because that is where a lot of the punchiness of a kick is in the subwoofer space. I know what you're think just...

There's no creativity in taking a song and adding an 808 under it. There is so much more to sampling than that. That's stealing, not sampling.

Well I live in New Orleans. I've never had a reason to go down to the clubs or anything like that because I just now turned 21. Maybe I should just go check it out. I know there's one club that is an electronic music club but that's it.

do you have to dj to be famous

Do y'all think I should invest in CDJ's and start doing live shows to get some of my music out there or what? Did it work for you if you did it? Or should I just stick with trying to get my music out via promo channels etc.?
