Re: I'm frustrated creating music?

Keep making stuff. Start tracks and finish them. Never be satisfied, but never think you aren't good enough. Always look at what you've made, critique it, use what you learned in the next track you make. Progress over time. Unfortunately producing is just like everything else in life, there are no s...

Re: Lazer Type Lead

Bit of a variation on a standard hard skism/skrillexish/zomboy synth. Utilizes the whole '2 sine oscs pitched 3 to 4 octaves apart with some distortion' trick. Fast attack, plenty of release and reverb. Be easy to get something similar, maybe a bit harder to get exact since we don't know what proces...

Re: Snare Question

Imo that snare is annoying as fuck, being right in my ears like that. It's pretty obvious it's a generic hip hop/trap snare with excessive amounts of stereo separation, you can tell by the right side being more present than the left. If you're on FL then Fruity stereo shaper preset 'stereoise 3' sho...

Re: DSF SAMPLE PACK COMPETITION - 41 // PACK AVAILABLE

Considering the hardest/most tedious part of the track writing for me is the sound design, having all the sounds provided should be a very interesting way to go about song writing. Definitely in.

Photon Man - Helios

Did a revamp of this track to offer as a free download, like I do with most of my tracks. Mix is sounding alright to me, little messy but it'll do.

Enjoy!

Re: CliffLight looking for a remix

Awesome song, I'd definitely be interested in doing a remix. I'd like all the stems apart from the drums if you can, that'd be awesome.

Re: How do i get my tracks super loud like zomboy and skrill

Ya gots ta do limiting in ya mix. Cutting the harsh peaks off punchy drum samples is a good place to start, after that start applying it to everything else. Normal compression but to get really loud you gotta cut of them nasty peaks, and everywhere. You'll then find you don't have to push the limite...

Re: Any tricks to add complications to a song?

I always work with something until it's genuinely pleasant for me to listen to, even if that means deleting/starting over or reworking stuff until I'm happy with it. If you think something isn't working, don't sit on, do something about it. I've started songs with anything from a growl, to an old me...

A lot of his stuff lately has revolved around really wet sounding patches with a lot of filtering. And hard synths, let's not forget those.

Did a re-mixdown of an older track of mine, it was bugging how shit it was. Free download available, open to criticism and what not. If you want me to crit your track then point me to said track and I'll do my best.

Sytrus, so I can use midi slides in FL. Also custom envelopes so you can get the attack and release just right.

Photon Man is a reference to the first Age of empires game, you could get a nuke trooper called a 'photon man' by typing that into the chat box. Because I'm a video game nerd like that.
