Please send a link. I will probably redo the snares, and update in the coming weeks.

Re: NAAR - Not An Analog Rytm for Ableton Live

Hi, I would like to share a drum rack with you guys based on >100 samples from my trusted Analog Rytm. The rack has some nice tricks in its sleeves, for instance the toms have a wide variety of sound as they can be modified using frequency modulation, the clap actually uses two samples with optiona...

Re: The Yamaha sound for Operator? Or at least patch guidelines.

https://asb2m10.github.io/dexed/ Thank me later. And works in Live 64bit! Very nice! I'd like to thank you now for mentioning this tasteful addition. This reminds me to really use more exclamation marks, bold and/or red fonts more, as I mentioned Dexed eight (!!!) posts before the kb420 gentlemen w...

Re: The Yamaha sound for Operator? Or at least patch guidelines.

Hi, you are right, the DX11 is subsumed in its capabilities to the Operator - that means Operator should be able to do all DX11 sounds in theory, minus the special sound you get from the DX D/A converters. But only a few seminal, individual sounds have ever been recreated by enthusiasts - some peopl...

Re: Bass layering/panning

yea i'm talking like 200 or 300-1k being essentially "not" in mono... Hi, bass frequencies - all the stuff under 160-200hz really, usually are kept in mono so that (a) you have the full energy from both speakers in stereo and (b) any phase cancellation happening on mono playback systems does not ta...

Re: Drums. VSTS, Sample Packs reccomend?

Hi, +1 for Big Kick as it probably is the most convenient, versatile solution (sample plus synthesis) for you. It has some classic 808 samples and synth engine that can be tuned as low and heavy as you want for Trap. In Ableton Suite, there is the option to layer a kick or noise sample, shorten its ...

Re: "Mastering" at home, the chain, limiting

I don't have the money to spend on decent mastering plugins at this stage but perhaps in the future Hi, a professional producer recently pointed me to Limiter No6 https://vladgsound.wordpress.com/plugins/limiter6/ as the thing he would use. This plugin is actually a sensible mastering chain on its ...

Re: How to check track delay caused by plugins?

Hi, you can only see the ms and samples of delay by hovering over the plugin with the mouse, not for one track I fear. While Live does auto-compensate, there are two instances where the manual compensation is still very useful: (1) the plugin does not signal latency correctly (few old plugins, exter...

Re: What's your Live controller and why?

Push 1. Hardly can be separated with it. It just works for me as I do not need to use another power adapter. Its 80s "controlling soviet atomic missiles" display works fine on USB alone - which comes as a big bonus when you make most of your music in old-school hotel rooms where you have to detach t...

Re: "Mastering" at home, the chain, limiting

"NEVER USE IT TO MAKE A MIX LOUD" Ahem... making things a bit louder is what God created limiters for. That and saving your loudspeakers. You are doing it right. Get a good mix together with 3 to (better) 6db headroom, mix into your Glue (gain reduction of about 3-4db, slow attack, let the needle d...

Hi,

is this true, and if so, how does this work? Now I am really confused... dithering is adding a bit of noise, that should not increase dynamics...

Best,

Re: Bass Synths like stephan Bodzin..so full and almost chords ?

Hi, his bass pad is very unique sounding and probably comes from his Moog Sub 37. From what I can hear: He uses three oscillators, one sub and two saw oscillators detuned against each other (could also be saw/square mix as the Sub37 can do that, and the sub bass could be a different patch). The true...

Re: Essential plugins for mixing

Hi, count me in the group of people here that generally like Ableton's build in mixing/mastering tools, especially The Glue and EQ8. That being said, there is some stuff I like to use that is not available as is: Toneboosters Reel-To-Reel tape simulation ReelBus, TB Ferox and TB Isone for mixing wit...
