some great sounds going on, anon.

the metallic perc sounds and hats seems to be a bit harsh to me, but i'm currently listening on laptop speakers so take that with a grain of salt. also wish it was longer.

Is there are way to do this in ableton?

Say I have a drum loop sample, and I want to trigger a sine wave everytime the kick hits in the sample to create some sub bass. Is it possible to use the low end of the loop as a trigger for a synth and have it all happen on the same track as a chain? any tips?
>>
>>78039545
sidechained gate opening the sine generator is the old school way to do this
in ableton use a rack to throw it all on the same track

>>78039545
Bro there are so many ways to do this buy go with >>78039658


Also, Ableton can pretty much do anything so don't even bother if it can or can't do something.
>>
More of a /comp/ question so honestly I don't have much hope of getting it answered but how do you make "talking" bass lines? You know how in some music the bass just kind of sounds like its noodling around just creating a contour instead of complimenting things harmonically? How is that effect achieved?

>>78041017
no walking bass is very complimentary. I can only think of one not particularly good example at the end of this song. There's probably something in squarepusher that's suitable if I look around. And also I kind of did it myself but I can't reverse-engineer it so I can guarantee this is a "thing". I just don't want to post it because its the most autistic shit ever.

>>78041194
I honestly think flying lotus takes old recording sessions with thundercat, chops them up, extracts midi note data and assigns new bass patches in ableton.
>>
>>78041389
okay, that doesn't do anything for my question
>>
>>78041532
Well, i'm not entirely sure what you are referring to, but I think what you are describing might be more of happy accidents via sample chopping or step sequencer randomization than planned bass notes on a piano roll.

no. Its a purely compositional thing. Here, I did it while trying to make 12 tone Spyro music (because I got some soundfonts and felt nostalgic). There, are you happy? I posted it!

I don't produce. My endgame is serious composition but classical would probably just say something like ">basslines".

Two Steps from Hell-ish thing because I wanted to get better at orchestral music production. Any tips on composition, arrangement, mixing, mastering?

I only did some volume balancing, a EQ'd every track, tried to a new method of having one instance of reverb on a channel and routing tracks into it at differing volumes, and then applied a mastering tutorial by a guy called Justin Omoi.

>>78041782
Did you try vowel filters?
>>
>>78042431
the sine-y subbass in the beginning needs more overtones to really be heard on a smaller system, otherwise it's gone.
your lower strings have a lot of 200Hz buildup, clean that up.
your mix and orchestral seating lacks definition in both dimensions: the panning seems random as brass jumps around and the strings mostly clutter up in the middle creating that comb filtery midrange. place your orchestra in the stereo field the way you want it to sit and leave it throughout the track. also everything is super up front, use reverb and especially early reflections to create the 'rows' of instruments, especially your woodwinds and parts of the percussion can be pushed back quite a bit.
last but not least go easy on the compression and limiting, you're smashing the mix quite a bit, sacrificing naturalness/clarity and adding distortion to the loud parts - both unwanted in the orchestral context
>>
it's not really a track, just a snippet of a project i use as an "experimentation environment" so to speak. i just fuck around with the sounds and the mix and see what happens, and it's just useful to keep all the fuckery contained in one project.

anyway here's the sound i've got so far. how would you fill in the mids?

I imagine some chords from eerie glass harp kind of swells into large reverb
>>
>>78042932
i'll try that out, thanks
>>
>>78042714
Thank you for your tips.

When I used more reverb on the woodwinds, the melody in around 1:19 got really unhearable, does it mean I should just make it louder?

Also, I panned the instruments a bit, but it felt weird when the upper violins were playing the melody that I only heard low-end instruments such as celli, violas and basses in the right ear. Is that really okay and enjoyable for a listener to have it panned like that?
>>
I've been having consistent problems with a Live set of mine.
whenever I try and load it, Live just... hangs. It's not plugins, I'm almost certain it's due to an issue with a sample I use. I don't know what or why it would cause Live to hang, but this project is just dead in the water because I can't open it.

I can't individually drag in each instrument either, just trying to load one causes Live to hang. Neither does the "hold ALT" trick work

any suggestions?
>>
>>78043035
it being unhearable can be a lot of reasons, due to composition or just due to the mix covering it up, if your reverb obstructs something rather than adding a sense of space it might just not be the right reverb or might need some eq.
in a sample orchestra mockup the panning is basically what the spot mics would do in an actual recording - giving the sense of separation to the instruments so it's easier to follow the lines. of course you don't want your mix to fall apart and feel like it's just jumping left and right, especially with headphones, but that's where in the recording process the main microphone setup comes to play and holds all your stuff together in a coherent stereo field. with most samples that's not available, so your main reverb with a good control of the early reflections simulating the stage and hall is crucial.
Imagine it like that - your cello group sits on the right so the initial localization of a loud, harsh cello note is obviously coming from the right side, but it also reflects off the left stage wall, the ceiling and the back of the stage with not too much of a delay, glueing it together with the rest of the ensemble. that's what you want your main reverb to do, and if you get it right you don't have to be afraid of spreading your pans out
>>
>>78043187
Your voice could use some improvement, try to look up some techniques to practice it. Check out this boyinaband video for some tips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NWbSuCrF8o
The way your voice changes at the phrase "sweaty american hands" is pretty good though.

in the second one you keep throwing abrupt chords that don't fit and sound as pleasurable. Sometimes it's nicer to be a bit predictable so the listener isn't completely confused.
>>
>>78043268
Cool, thank you very much
>>
>>78043140
have you tried deleting your preferences.cfg file
>>
>>78043512
Yeah, it did nothing either.
>>
desu I'm considering just purchasing Live just so I can actual support from Ableton
>>
>>78043596
Did you pirate it? I want to move to Ableton and buy it in summer, so now i just want to learn by making a few tracks on a pirated version, but it says I can't save a project if it's not validated.
>>
I completely suck at sampling, I can't find the good parts in a sample that are good to assemble and can't build any melody around it. Any suggestions?
>>
>>78043660
Yeah, I've been using live for like 6 years now. I figure it's high time I get it, especially so since I qualify for the student discount.
It's just $449 is super steep, and I still don't get lifetime updates with it.
>>
>>78043777
you're not sampling correctly
>>
so how does Live watermark pirated versions of itself?
>>
>>78043948
stop listening to the jews whisper in your head anon
>>
>>78043948
what do you mean like your final audio i don't think that happens

if your live is pirated it will probably just try to deactivate itself
>>
it's not exactly a glass harp like >>78042932 recommended but i added some swells and a xylophone, and also relegated the original beeps to the background. it works pretty well i think.
now I need some sort of noise-y background pad and a clicky or snappy percussive element

anybody wanna throw me an idea or provide links to samples?
here's the clyp
https://clyp.it/1zkywyh3
>>
>>78041782
I don't understand. If you're trying to learn composition, why do you want to write basslines? Also that sounds retarded.
>>
>>78045741
no, that's a standard walking jazz bass, very tonally-driven and harmonically complimentary. I'm talking about something that sort of floats on top, almost more like percussion.
>>
>>78045864
pretty sure that kind of bassline is literally just one sustained note that's modulated by a crazy amount of effects and automation

Looking for some feedback on guitar tone here, first time trying to record from my shitty practice amp. Everything else (drums, bass) is kinda placeholder right now, is this a good staring point?
https://clyp.it/4wjz55mo
>>
>>78039151
Sounds really nice, reminds me Surfing on Sine Waves stuff but more housey. The percussion sounds okay on regular speakers but not on laptop. The bass drum sounds a bit to loud and the reverb combined with the distortion in the sounds creates an annoying shaker sound near the end.
>>
>>78046116
I like the general guitar sound, especially on the chords
but man, give your leads some life, you play like a robot
>>
https://clyp.it/zddz3gsf

any thoughts on how to improve the energy and melody would be great
>>
>>78046335
Fair point. I usually produce downtempo and this is my first attempt at writing a straight rock song. I'm definitely gonna work on humanizing it, I'm just too afraid of fucking up the recording because I'm not used to this style of composing. Thanks for the feedback, yo.
>>
>>78046573
don't be afraid, that's the beauty of recording yourself. just record in a loop, experiment, fool around, mess up, start over
and in the end you comp together all your takes to a nice sounding line, no one cares how you get there and if you can actually play it that way, all that matters that it sounds good
>>
>>78046116
sounds pretty nice. the tone is a little messy. could be from eqing. guitar and similar sounding synths are so hard to eq just right

i'm assuming you'll add a bit more to the transitions between the main riff and the chorus (maybe some toms or a drum roll) and change the drum pattern during the chorus. a bit boring to have the same beat and hat pattern throughout, but i get it, it's just a placeholder.

good stuff. keep it up

>>78046484
why need more energy? it's very laid back. adding more energy would destroy this dynamic. yeah it's pretty simple, structurally and with the melodies that are playing. nothing wrong with simplicity
>>
>>78046116
yyyyeah it's pretty obvious you've got a digital amp, try some saturation in the box or something
>>
>>78046701
I guess I didn't mean more energy. I'm trying to give it more direction, like better build/release.
>>
>>78046028
No, not at all. If I had to guess it probably has to do with using a lot of dissonant intervals closely related to eachother. In that abominable music I posted, I used every tone in the chromatic scale the same number of times (except at the opening) for instance.

Updated >>78039151 Made it sound more clear and removed some stereo seperation. Does it sound too tinny? Thoughts?

>>78046221
Thank you, are you talking about the distortion near the end? That's intentional.
>>
>>78046484
Needs a lot more stereo work and stereo seperation. Sounds very mono and boring. Not the song itself though, I like it melodically and it keeps itself interesting enough.

Yes, I do. I'm ashamed of it but it has to do with being completely autistic and starting my music making in the music sequencer in Little Big Planet 2. Composing music with a game controller is something very natural to me and since its something I do for enjoyment why not do it the way I like and am used to?
>>
>>78048902
gay af my man

it sounds like your holding back air or something?

like the vibrating is at the top of your throat rather rather than the back of your mouth where you'd be getting that high mid resonance

my impression

the songs are aight

>>
>>78048338
holy shit why have I never noticed this. I knew there was still something wack about my mixing, and that's definitely it.

guess it doesn't help that I do most of my mixing in mono. its like my ears get used to it, so once I'm done whatever tiny bit of stereo is already there sounds great.

here are the changes, shits fucking binaural now
https://clyp.it/uln2e3hx

Eh I map most of that stuff in synth presets I make so they're easy to get a few different sounds per patch

Did it work? I don't know if i'm gonna take the risk of uninstalling live 9 if this doesn't work.

>>78054990
bassline could be better obviously but i like the vibe.
how did you synthesise the pad that plays the chords? it sounds pretty simple but the filter opening at the beginning of the phrase gives it a jazzy "future ambient" tone. pls respond i've been trying to make that pad like forever

Does you guys know if:
1. J-bridged VST plugins works just as well as normal 64 bits plugins? Specially compressors?

Also damn that new Max For Live kickdrum instrument is like the best all around kick i've heard!
>>
Does anyone have a good quality sample of the Wilhelm Scream?

Other meme samples well accepted as well.
So far I only have the Damn Son an the WOOH ones.

needs a better kick with more punch, most of the energy seems to be coming from the click, turn up/compress your 808 a little. the melody is nice, and it seems everything goes pretty well together, nice job. I like the synth that comes in at 1:01

>>78052369
cool, drums r nice, you should keep producing

>>78052542
boring, predictable melody, quantised, no syncopation

>>78054990
fix ur bassline, just sounds like generic 80's house, which is a good thing for that genre so keep going, bassline is too dry, too random, it needs to be constant in songs like this and syncopate with the rhythm

fb plz

i made a song where this happens. The track that does it hits one note every bar and adds a second lower throughout but u can perceive it hitting that lower note each time. Uses a good amount of
delay as well.

Thanks, yeah gonna punch in a new bassline for sure

Chords are actually 2 pad presets on a rompler so i didn't make them but they are basic, i think its mostly the effect chain making the sound. Pads have a LPF on them, then 70% Send Reverb>HPF and 90% Send Stereo Delay>BPF>Compressor.

I personally dig this and think its near perfect.
Maybe -2db on those high frequency droplets?
I also think the bass track could get boomier or open up the filter a bit in some spots, but that might change the vibe too much

what are some things i can do with bass to make it less static?

i guess i'm being a bitch? the criticism is that the chords are boring and the melody is boring.

chords used:
A/E Bmadd11
A D/A
E Bmadd11 Dmaj7 A

if those are boring then what chords aren't boring? i don't see the point in a criticism like that. the melody is just playing notes that fall in the chords because i'm not exactly trying to defy all music theory in the hopes to be *different*

like it or not, there is music that is just as simple that sounds nowhere near as flat. the issue of quantization makes sense and is a useful criticism, but saying "chords are boring LOL" is just useless
>>
>>78060732
off this, anyone know if its possible to use gross beat in odd time signatures (7/8 etc)
>>
>>78061409
for the pad chain. the sound itself seems simple enough, i just wanted an idea of the effects chain.

and yeah the droplets are a little harsh sounding, i'll tweak them a little more. as for the bass, it's really just a simple moog bass i ripped from analog lab but opening up the filter is a good idea, might give it some more character. thanks for the tips

listening to your track again now. i think the kick could use some more low end and the offbeat hat turned down just a touch for the first 3 minutes (after that it sits well in the mix imo).
if you're looking for a decent bassline i would just take the one you already have and chop it up, then repeat certain sections to see if it fits. i like the part from 1:03 to 1:10. as for the sound, i reckon it would sound better with a filter on it so that the buzz is just barely audible, as well as moved to the back of the mix a little more.
i would also put a steep high cut on the pad so it doesn't clash with the bass. 300-400Hz cutoff would be a good place to start
>>
>>78061742
synth? fine detune oscs to get beating, do subtle modulation of filter, LFO sweeping pulse width, layering it with another different sound that comes in and out periodically

with bass guitar see if you can get a volume to CC in your plugin fx so that the harder you play the more it modulates all kinds of settings like if you're using guitar rig with a cab that blends between dynamic and condenser make it so playing louder feeds it more to the 57, quieter to the condenser

I dunno

if you're trying to make my tinnitus even worse then hats off to you my man.
otherwise, i actually like what you're going for, it's really hypnotic and the mix itself is pretty solid. the only problem is that high pitched tone at the beginning, it's just way too much to be enjoyable to listen to. it's more bearable when you add modulations like the vibrato but a constant, unchanging high pitched tone is torture even by harsh noise standards.

now i don't know if you're just fucking around with synthesis and mixing, and not even thinking about composition, or if this is the actual style of music you're going for, but i actually dig it. if you developed your sound more i could picture this becoming some sort of "final boss" /mu/core album
>>
>>78062515
well i'm still experimenting desu, but i liked and saw fit whatever i had put into this

Maintain the sampled sound but throw in some strange idm elements and you'll have a unuiqe sound.
>>
>>78063313
This is pretty boring, way too quiet and sloppy rhythms. The sample isn't good either. Only do beatpad stuff if you have a sense of rhythm, otherwise it'll sound like this.

That tone at the start is shrill as fuck, you should probably eq it

Also it sounds like you just mashed a bunch of shit together without any real tonality. It's more like noise set to a beat than a song. Like, what were you going for with that organ sound? It just comes out of nowhere and doesn't really fit with the rest of the track.
>>
>>78062005
>Should I take the deal?
Yes.
>>78063400
/prod/ discord and EDMP here and there.
>>78065146

Yes.
>>
>>78066139
i know it was probably a bad decision
well this is my attempt to combine harsh noise and hip hop, and i'll be honest i don't know much about music theory but i do know some basics
the organ (ish... it's not really organ) sound is meant to divide verses... because the track is meant to have vocals on it
>>
>>78066232
I don't really like/listen to harsh noise but if that's the sound you were going for then good job I guess.

Maybe add some drums to the organ parts or at least have the drums lead into them so it doesn't sound like part of a completely different thing just dropped in though.
>>
>>78066337
people been suggesting that i make a little less sudden though that's kinda the charm for me... i'll think about
Thanks for the feedback

Made a spooky 8-bit track for a game-type dealio.

Is the lead part too shrill?
Does the delay/reverb make it too muddy?
