Re: An idea about full-lenght albums. What do you think?

the word "album" is so 70'ish (at least in italy) :roll: thats exactly my point. we must save the album! why? i don't disagree with you, but just playing devil's advocate i think there's a beauty in creating a musical experience which lasts longer than a single track quickly consumed online. recent...

An idea about full-lenght albums. What do you think?

Hi guys, i was wondering: isn't it ironic that dj's share their albums online on 1 single audio files - ie as a single coherent entity - while albums of original music always come in separate tracks? What about also offering albums as 1 audio file, just to make the statement that albums also are an ...

Lofi + hifi = Birdrider

Hi guys, here are 2 albums entirely made in Ableton Live, but mastered in a hi end studio, all analogue signal path. I kinda like the rawness of homemade productions coupled with the expensive gear of pro studios the project is called Birdrider, its electro, pop, indie, rock, blablabla http://birdri...

Re: The end of music production as we know it ?

fuck that shit. its all part of the new philosophy of brands "involving people" in some interactive bullshit instead of simply advertising on tv. you should rename your thread "the end of advertising as we know it" its getting too intrusive, sometimes i think we need a bloody revolution to counter t...

Re: singer/songwriters here?

i started a couple of years ago with the assumption i'd make electronic music. it turned out i quickly got into "old school" song structures, with lyrics, verses, chorus and stuff. we all heard so much pop/rock/whatever music, we all have it in us. you dont need prior knowledge... the best tip i cou...

Re: This device alone makes Max4Live worth it...

I originally got Max for Live for one very specific type of device, but unfortunately have been so busy that I haven't been able to get deep enough into it yet. Luckily Hoffman2K has been busy making very cool stuff though and made some devices that were very similar to what I had in mind, and with...

Re: Tricky mastering question

There are quite a few cowboys out there that will run your mix through some type of preset EQ curve (such as Harbal or Voxengo's curve EQ) set up to music from your genre, and then bang on an L2. This can produce results anywhere from barely acceptable (but louder) to absolute trash. Well his own s...
