Re: Detroit/Deep Techno/House : Melodic Part

i honestly didnt hear to many melodies in the songs you posted. i think you may be misunderstanding melody. there are motifs, but theres not alot of chords to support so theres not a strong melody. trance is a more melodic music, pop is very melodic(as in its the part you hum after the song quit pla...

Re: Dj'ing with Ableton....

Looping on the fly in Ableton is quite easy. Underneath the "Loop" button is something called position with a button called set. If you click on that whilst the track is playing it will set the loop point. You can then enter the length manually or hit the length set button whilst the track is playi...

Re: Dj'ing with Ableton....

Re: ..:: Wired Roots ::.. Downtempo Hardware Live PA.

:oops: i dont really know what to say, but the sound itself is terrible. the sounds are weak like an 80s rompler and generally are not interesting in the least. I hate to post something like that, and im not sure if you are even wanting advice, but there it is. Musically, its somewhat lacking, but s...

Re: Korg Monotribe

what a stupid idea, and a waste of a perfectly good VCO/VCF!

its useless without midi or a real keyboard. i dont even understand what all you guys are excited about? what would you even use this thing for? all the videos of the monotrons suck because noone can play it worth a shit.

Re: Novation Twitch

some features are interesting, but there are way better dj-controllers (both for controllerism and djing) out there... the NI S4 controller, Reloop Jockey 3, Dj-Tech Hybrid 303... BUT... those are mainly thought for Traktor... I've never used The Bridge, and this could be a good controller for it, ...

Re: VERY frustrated DJ/Producer.

I mean sorry to say this, and i have no idea until you post and id love to be proven wrong, but i have a feeling, but my feeling is that either your music sucks something fierce( somewhat unlikely) or you just keep fucking everything up and going to the wrong venues(likely). bad/ok music + wrong ven...

Re: Question for Ableton DJ's: How to keep crowds interested?

Thanks everyone for the advice. I'm 150% ready to play a gig. Musically, it's my main goal right now. I have fast track pro external soundcard but talking with other artists, if I'm not cueing in headphones, I'm told I don't need a soundcard for a live gig. I guess the one thing I realized is every...

Re: How are Sends and Returns supposed to be used?

They are mainly for reverb and delay type effects, where you want to hear the original but then you want a tail on the end of some sort. for instance, you make a reverb(which is your "room") and then you send the drums, lead, vocals, and a little hipassed bass to make them all sound like they are in...

Re: Holy...Focusrite VRM Box
