Re: Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

This is thing. When using sampled kick i dont want to be messing around pitching it about because it ruins it. The obvious answer is "dont use samples". I always start with the kick and build up from there, quite common in house production i understand. For instance i find most of the Vengeance Samp...

Re: Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

Thanks, all good stuff. Still a bit confused so i will try it both ways. I have been tuning the bass a fifth above the kick, then using that as the key of my track, the kick and bass sounds good but later on things tend to sound a bit out with the rest of the melodic elements, I will try it the othe...

Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

In Tim Allen's Groove 3 tutorials he mentions tuning the bass root note to a fifth above the fundamental of the kick. For this example we will say the kick is in C and the Bass root is G.

Is my track now in the key of C or G?

Cheers

Re: Grouping drums together and compressing them

I like to group them all on a group channel, hats, kick, snare ...the lot. Then compress using ratio about 1.3, attack 10ms or so and release depending on the track, prob about 50ms. The idea is that the kick will flatten the other elements (especially the snare) and tie them all together. Works for...

Re: How to transition to Ableton Live after 20 years of Cubase?

If by "shared copies" you mean the ability to copy a midi clip 50 times but if you want to edit them all you only need to edit the original version and the rest will update? Then yes Ableton can do this if you drag the edge of the clip out, not by cut and paste (similar to Acid by Sony) I straddled ...

Looper only playing back 1 bar

Hi I am using Looper in my DJ set to create an endless loop to mix out with. I have it set to record 4 bars, which it does, but then only plays back the first bar. Is this normal???? I would assume it should play back the whole 4 bars. Quantization: Global Record:4 bars then play song control: start...

Re: Choosing monitors KRK VXT6 vs Mackie MR5

Sorry, i was mistaken, it is the RP5 Rockit that i was listening to, not the VXT.

I think i prefer the Mackies. Compared the M-Audio BX5a as well, fairly close the the rockits but less low end i thought.

Choosing monitors KRK VXT6 vs Mackie MR5

hi I am deciding on a new pair of compact monitors I had a listen to KRK VXT6 and Mackie MR5's today When comparing the two, the KRK's seems flat and dry whereas the Mackies had more colour and richness. I dont know which is better for me, should i deliberately choose a flat dry monitor? Or pick one...

Modular LFO and a Midi timing randomiser

A modular LFO(s) plugin which i can insert into the Effect chain which will automate any parameter on any effect in the chain.

Also a midi effect which will add random to the timing of midi notes

In the browser multi select a bunch of Bongo one shots, in this example we''l grab three. Drag them into and audio channel. Now multi select them all, whil...
