Re: Why Do DJs DJ? The "Cool Factor"

HAHAH.. good topic.. and i'm not going to lie.. Djing is easy.. Been djing for 7 years now and its way easier then producing. Got into producing just last year and all i can tell you is that producing is way cooler because if you know how to produce you can be a DJ in no time...!!!

Re: keeping levels down in ableton for producing

Lastly I really am getting tired of the overuse of the term "warmth". The compressor is adding "warmth"? really? What does that sound like? The compressor is not for warmth, it is for dynamics.

how to make a rolling percussion sound

I'm trying to figure out how to make a rolling percussion bell sound. I'm not sure how to do it. I've tried to lay out the midi but its not sounding right. Does anyone know a trick? It can be observed in this track by laidback luke @ 48 sec. THANKS
