Re: Switching from FL, Necessary?

I use FL. I haven't actually tried using any other DAWs though I used to think I might be better off with something like Ableton. But now the more I get to know FL the more I'm sure it's right for me, and honestly I think trying to switch to a different DAW would just fuck with my head and make me f...

Re: Fl studio and boobs

I realised I can change my FL background to something inspiring. It's awesome right?? I change my background every now and then anyway so I don't get bored :P @OP I'm not sure what your hardware/software setup is, but if you're using the ASIO4ALL driver, you need to set the buffer size high enough,...

Re: Keeping the vibe (Tune structure)

The way I see it, it's about what's at the core of your song. For songs like Daydreamer, Gold Dust remix, Cracks remix, the melody was the most important aspect. Sure flux's "basses" are crazy, but ultimately it's the melody that drives his songs. So therefore he "plots" the entire melody in its sim...

Re: Why Music Theory, Scales, Ear Training, etc are IMPORTAN

Just in case anyone cares, in my opinion this stuff isn't strictly "important" ... but basically ANY musical training and knowledge you have can definitely help your producing, even if it's just like subtle infuences on your song composition or something. I read somewhere that Phaeleh was classicall...

Re: STATIC - DISRUPTION (UNSIGNED)

It's good man. I reckon the main wobble or "bass" was a bit... noisy and got boring. Like I personally felt it needed more movement/modulation. The wobble/bass kinda felt too harsh or gritty for the other elements of the song. Just my personal opinion though.

Overal good song, nice to listen to :D

Re: Song Idea Discussion

Sounds like a bad trip to me... Or a good one, depending on your style lol. Pretty sweet idea man. It'll be extremely hard to pull off I reckon, the only band I can think of who really nails this concept is Tool, progressive metal lol. So they had lyrics and poetic metaphors to help them.

Sorry to bump this up but I'm also looking at getting the Traktor Audio 6 Interface. But I'm still a noob to producing so I have almost no knowledge about external soundcards/interfaces. I want to start getting into DJ mixing on a midi controler/mixer but most budget ones don't have internal sound c...

Re: Best Way To Optimize CPU

My laptop has 4.00gb ram and 2.10GHz processor but I usually don't have any problems. If you're worried about overload you could also close all background programs (especially anti-virus programs as they consume shitloads of CPU behind your back). And when I used to do pc gaming I used Vista Service...

Re: Resampling Tutorial

Resampling isn't some breakthrough or even different method of making sounds. Its just bouncing down your shit to audio and then working on it again. Adding a reverb to a wav file of a synth with a long fx chain is going to sound the same as the reverb just added to the end of the long fx chain. Th...

If he even knew exactly what mastering was he wouldn't have said he could do it) and his song had major...

Re: Theory of dubstep

You said you've listened to thousands of dubstep songs. If you wanna actually learn from a song you basically have to analyse it. Like, you could look at it on a larger scale like composition: take note of the different sections of the song and what instruments/melodies/rhythm they contain and how i...

Re: Ear Fatigue

If it kills your actual ears, I'd say it's your headphones. I had a pair of AKG headphones (I think the cheapest model though) and I couldn't wear them for more than an hour because they hurt my ears so much. I figured out its cos the ear pads weren't deep enough and so were literally pushing my ear...

Re: ▲IRRAIK▲ - Turelem (FL Studio)

It's good man, personally I think there were too many pitch bends. I kept wanting to hear more melody in the drops but it just kept coming in with more pitch bends. The glitched vocals were cool but I felt like the rhythm/chopping was too random and made listening a little uneasy. The mixing sounded...

Re: New Demo

Ok in all honesty the drum programming is horrible. You definitely didn't make it boring and repetitive, but in achieving that you just made it too hard to follow the beat and feel the rhythm/song overall. I reckon the synth sounds are pretty legit, though I didn't hear any sub bass at all... Which ...
