Re: Anyone Using Machinedrum?

I've had the Machinedrum for a couple of months and I can't say I really liked it. Like Wormcode said it's good for techno and minimal but in my experience it's much more work to make fat snares and complex hats patterns with than software. It's also possible to make more synthy kind of sounds but a...

Re: Z3ta 2 out!

Any good? Yes, one major improvemen is that the waveshaping functions can be modulated which really can create interesting sounds. You could still automate the waveshaper in your DAW but being able to use the modulation matrix is definitely a major improvement. The effect routing section is pretty ...

Re: Looking for new speakers. Recommend me some.

All of them are good monitors but have different sonic qualities. Go listen to them in a shop and let your ears decide what's best for you.

Re: What cables?

theres little to no quality difference between expensive and cheap cables of the same type. Did you actually try good cables on your system ? i found that actually makes quite a difference. Serox, can't recommend on those you mentioned. It's worth going to your local store and ask them. Btw, get XL...

Re: Room treatment help (knowledgeable people only plz!)

one thing that works is placing some 2x4 wood horrizontally across the back wall and it's cheaper than sound dampening foam Yeah that was the idea at first but according to everyone involved in this thread I'll deal with that later. also check out this link, it's pretty cool http://news.cnet.com/83...

Re: Resampling is not the answer.

Resampling is probably not the answer if you're into standard brostep midrange kinda sounds but saying it's not the answer at all and/or it's overrated is just plain ignorant. You have no use for it ? Good for you really but by making this thread you're just showing you don't know what you're talkin...

I'm a bit confused. I was at the main hardware stores in my town and none is telling about the materials density. How do you go about picking one then ?

OK just realized the Owens Corning fiberglass 703 or 705 is recommended for mids and highs, so do I only use this for the walls and rockwool for the smaller square bass traps in the corners ?

Very brief, terse, hungover post :D Forget Auralex, foam, tiles, all that shit. Waste of time.

Thanks a lot for your help Sharm! Thanks Decree, will fill one out. And also thanks Nowaysj for the input. I read on SOS that the density matters a lot, don't you think it's more a matter of density than brand ? To sum it up a little, regarding the material I need rockwool that's 10 cm/4" thick and ...

Alright, so I found this article on SOS and that video on DIY bass traps . So basicly, I need like 4 of those, 1 for each side wall (would 2 be better ?), 1 for the ceiling above my head (is that what you call a cloud ?) and 1, possibly bigger, for the back wall + at least 5 little ones for corners ...

Thanks for your time ;-) Do you have some more ? :6: I'd suggest that - at least at first - you concentrate on killing reflections from the back wall stone dead before worrying about anything else. Making some sort of checkerboard using lots of acoustic tiles or more likely a wallfull of them ? Any ...

any tips on where to start rolling off the mids? Was thinking maybe around 120 to leave room for kick and eq out around 200-500 (as mentioned above) to cut the muddyness? Completely depends on the other elements you have in the tune - for example, if the kick was a bit on the subby side and hitting...

Re: Sub Bass (Brostep)

Ok so how does adding harmonics that aren't sub make the sub better? Strictly speaking the sub frequencies are below 90 Hz so unless your song is in a very high key or you're doing strange things with your bassline, chances are your sine won't go above 65 Hz (C-2) so upper harmonies make the sub fu...
