Re: Knife Party and the Loudness War

exactly. the fecking thing that no "industry" person every says... is that's it's REALLY. ALL. UP. TO. TASTE. don't like limiting, don't do it. or limit as much as you dare. just keep experimenting and express yourself to the fullest.

Re: Filthy vs. Melodic/Chill

i feel like this topic comes up every few days and the answer is to get on your grind and study... i was never a rich kid, i took piano lessons cuz I wanted to know how to make music. you don't have to be privileged to learn in today's society, that's the beauty. you just need to have drive. this ki...

Re: The Hard Bass sound

i've had some success at making donky sounds using FM (the modulating oscillator obviously has a short attack) and lowpass filtering w/ high resonance. not that i was really trying to make donks.



XD I love this cheesy silliness tho

Re: Soundcloud/Youtube compression as mastering technique?

i dunno if it's just me... but i've noticed sometimes when i hear an mp3 version of something, that isn't that amazing of quality, i tend to try to hear through it if i like the song enough, and if that's the first version of a song i get used to, then that is the way i get used to hearing it.. and ...

Re: Music and Emotion: A Question.

YES - i don't think that is acknowledged enough among musicians. the style you choose to make says a lot about you as a person and what you give value to. that's why i hate so much all these random people coming out of nowhere/everywhere making substanceless mockeries of genres that they know nothin...

Re: How to DJ with CDJs?

dude, you're not a DJ yet.... are you even serious? you can't start looking down on controllerists until you at least have some idea of what a DJ does. you just asked if you're supposed to put in a pre-recorded mix. it's great that you want to learn but i bet you couldn't pick out what's wrong with ...

Re: Effects Chain Orders

i thought it would be obvious i was taking the piss. who the hell would put reverb into distortion, then delay it, and put it into like 4 more distortion units?? the gate after brickwall limiting is part of the joke :)

Re: Effects Chain Orders

that compressor chain sounds exactly like shoving a wave into a limiter. which incidentally is what i often do. for any gritty/dirty/growly sound, i shove a clean waveform hard into ableton's limiter, usually turn the release down to about zero (which is responsible for distortion) then do EQ/filter...

Re: Ghost bass?

it is certainly possible but it's not the same as simply playing 2 octaves. i've noticed at many times in my adventures with sound that i can hear a note lower than what should be there, due to two waves playing together and summing in just the right way. i noticed the most pronounced effect on a di...
