google "hackintosh". basically you can install a copy of OSX from your favourite torrent tracker, on to your intel based computer. so id advise you get a great setup, loads of ram etc, then hackintosh it to the max :)

piano is the best instrument for learning about chord structures, scales, melodies etc. it's much easier than a guitar for the simple reason that every note is laid out in front of you. with a guitar, there is the problem of different tunings etc. also, if you learn piano, you learn to read music. w...

i suggest you turn down the fm8 volume. sounds like the track is clipping.

otherwise it could be your speakers being shitty.

hi, very simple solution to this one. you probably installed massive in to a different location to the default one.. so go to ableton>preferences (i think you can press ctrl+, to open it) > click "files folders" on the left pane > now either press "rescan", or if that fails, set the custom folder to...

thanks misk, that was much more helpful :)

i notice the same thing with the whole getting better with every song you make..

i used to play in a rock band when i was 13, and the recordings seem to me to be now unbearably bad! it's true what they say - there's always room for improvement.

i know.. but i'm planning ahead innit

i'm not asking just for myself - lots of people will be thinking the same thing i'm sure.

it can't hurt to know, and it can't hurt to ask.. so replies such as those are pretty useless to tell the truth..

Sending Material to a Label

Okay, so as you may know I'm only 16, so i've not been signed before.. I haven't really seen anything here in terms of tips on how to get signed in the dubstep scene.. my questions are: - how many songs should you show them? - how do you find them? - how do you know if they're ripping you off? easy,...

i have no experience in it personally.. but i would say almost definitely you're best bet is use Native Instruments' Guitar Rig 3, and add a good bit of delay to taste..

also, ska guitar chords are usually on the off beat - so keep that in mind

cheers :) so anyway i've been working on it a little more.. i've posted the new version of the song on myspace. while the structure is almost exactly the same, i've varied the drums a bit, added a percussive melody and fixed the frequency distortion on the bass drop. tell me what y'all think :) chee...

lol i'm using FL 8 to arrange it, and using some home-made MASSIVE patches for bass, sub-bass etc. The piano thingy is an FM8 preset that's been tweaked a bit, and it's called Airpad. The drums were just the ones that come in FL8 under the Dance pack.. I EQd and reverbed them all up.. The samples we...
