use 'riff machine' or some chord generator if you can't come up with chords on the fly or... simply buy a mini keyboard.

The record scratching is too much. Like if you are going to do that, only do it once.

I wish my father like many other fathers bought me an entire guitar rig and perhaps a drumset and bass for my other friends to try making a band when I was young, a lot of parents actually do this because they want their sons to have what they never had or at least want them to try... That looks like a cool dad, my father went for a pack of cigarettes and never came back.

Anyway, I'd end up doing something like My Chemical Romance so I'm glad he went away.

Isn't there a way to learn how to make chords in a piano roll?
>>
>>88265173
The basic idea is you use every other note in your key ascending from your root note. That'll get you triads, 7ths, 9ths, and 11ths.
>>
>>88265331
I know that, but they suck and are too basic.
I used to make much better chords (they weren't good, let me be clear, but compared to now it's night and day) by just placing notes on the piano roll and altering the spaces until they sounded good and had the sound I was looking for.
Somehow now I can't do that anymore.

I made more than 20 songs before the hiatus and I never had problems.

>not as critical of your work
Even listening to them now they're still much better than what I make now.

I think the reason is that I haven't listened much to music during this time, so I guess my musicality suffered a bit.
If that's the case then listening to a lot of music should be the cure, but isn't there another way to improve that you guys know of?

/prod/ tried a remix contest some time ago, and the randomly selected song was Dreams by Fleetwood Mac, which had insane bleed in its stems, making them very hard to use.
>>
>>88266009
Sounds cool. If you're looking for stuff to improved try adding some more variety to that top line. Maybe like some stepwise passing tones emphasizing where the harmony changes. I think the second half of the phrase needs something more than the first.

God I hate French schizo retard boomers. They don't want to embrace metal yet they don't want to embrace electronic music. They're stuck in their bubble of Dad rock+French Chanson.

That's not actually %100 legit street dust you can find good and quality street dust in other places, I've taste the difference with common dusty electronics and the taste is way different from a pure %100 dirt dust that actually arises from the rural areas or places with no pavement, the taste is a total different thing and the juice you can say gets fermented in a better way producing full bodied juice, persistent, rich and warm by test, in presence of tannins.
I love how it dries your mouth but gives that leaves it with the ability to drink twice as much and satisfied.

The chip-tune style pluck feels a bit out of place imo, maybe add some more release to the ADSR or turn it down a wee bit

I have a two big suggestions:

Make the bass change up with each chord changeup on the scratches, also, reduce the release on the bass just ever so slightly, and also change up the rhythm of the scratches slightly with each pass.

It's pretty nice though, I like the idea behind it.

Obviously your drums are fucked. They're too quiet, too samey and there's no lows. Try varying aspects of the same drum / slice, use glitch 2 vst. You need a fairly consistent loud kick too, look into referencing with magic ab. I see what you're going for, a kind of Vordhosbn, so you need to really study that including the balances, look at it through an EQ, but also each drums. I would put that track in your DAW and slow the tempo down to see wtf's going on.
>>
>>88277755
Is it a sort of square wavey sound? If so, go through and start unplugging stuff at the wall and just repeat the process until you've found out what it is. I had a similar thing recently and it only stopped after I unplugged all the crap I wasn't using. How overloaded are your wall sockets?

yeah, then it advances to can't even come up with chords even though you've been playing music for a decade, and eventually you don't enjoy making music or doing anything really, then you don't want to get out of bed ever. Shit's real

writing an entire song with iris using a sample with ambiguous harmonic content

>>
>>88287980
What is iris?
>>
Anyone got their sample libraries for kontakt or omnisphere or whatever running off an NVMe M.2 drive? Building an audio production PC and trying to figure out if I should get a 1tb NVMe as my main sample drive or a 2tb SATA SSD. So far I think I should go with the 2tb for the extra space, doesn't seem like the speed of the NVMe will make that drastic of a difference in terms of sample-streaming performance.
>>
>>88288062
no cute girls can fill the void that k-on left man :(((

izotope iris. it's a (very meh) sampler that you plays back only certain frequencies/times you draw in; it's a unique instrument that hasn't been fully or even partially expanded upon for such a great idea. If you're into arca he endorsed it lol

>>88288140

ahhh, the possibilities are infinite! I'll never be able to make music with all these options.
>>
>>88288233
tbqhwyanon it's probably my least used instrument just because it's so straight forward.... completely sample dependent, but there's not really a whole lot of "sample manipulation" going on, shit's basically a fancy filter with some of the trash distortions as a bonus, you've gotta bounce down if you want to do real sampling or granular shit after that
>>
>>88288071
I run several TB of kontakt off a regular external USB 3 HDD, a large project that uses about 32GB of ram for kontakt will take several minutes to cache to the point where I can hit play. Note: Just because the instruments cache eventually to 32GB does not mean I'm using every single note in every single instrument. So it still works out, as its dynamically cacheing. I would just imagine it will be seconds in your case.

So basically, while USB 3.0 HDD, thunderbolt HDD is perfectly functional, going anywhere beyond will just be several factors better.

The main bottleneck for my giant Kontakt projects is RAM (32GB ddr3) and CPU (3.7ghz quad core xenon e5), NOT HDD recall. So keep that in mind. Hope that helps.
>>
>>88288071
I would get the 2TB because it doesn't take long to go over half a TB and then maybe things won't be as fast on a single TB

True.
I was just talking about it on Discord with the other Anon.
Ideally I should just disconnect the computer from the Internet and only reconnect it at the end of the day after all the work is done, but I want to experiment with different options too.
Like putting Firefox inside a TrueCrypt container to make it a hassle to use it, so I don't fall into procrastination out of habit.
We'll see what ends up being the most effective (at least for me; not sure if everyone's the same).

I'm nearing my wits' end. All I want to do is make music at the moment and I can't because I'd upset my housemates (who don't even charge me rent) if I actually go at it full force, because it'd be too noisy. I'm also severely broke, about to flunk out of uni, depression, self-hatred and nihilism is seeping into every facet of my life and I can't make it stop. I've created a fucked up goal of a renting my own house and building up a studio and not letting ANYONE hear what I work on until I'm satisfied with it because I don't know how to interact musically (or casually) with people. There is no way to realize this in a timely manner because I need to work on something like right now, I feel like life is slipping past me and I've done absolutely nothing with it. Sorry for the bitching but I'm looking to other musicians for advice and no one in my life really understands where I'm at right now.
>>

We shall all leave, so when you do come back, you won't find anybody and will stay out of here.

Maybe we should ask the shitposter to finally ruin /prod/ once and for all so we don't have any excuse to stay.

I did absolutely nothing but listen to music and refresh 4chan all day.
Actually, I did download a bunch of sample packs from musicradar/sampleradar and then I listened to one and it was absolutely terrible. No wonder they're given away for free. It's like they're 8 bar loops made by...
>>
>>88293161
Same, pretty much.
>>
>>88293161
fuck I wasted a bunch of days like that, it's definetely the lack of inspiration, you should try something like a new plugin or messing around with the stems of a song you like or even buying new gear, it helps a lot
>>
>>88293099
I still do not entirely know. Lately I've been listening to mainly industrial, rock, and techno after years of generally /bleep/-tier stuff. But I've dabbled in probably every single electronic music genre possible with using a DAW and a few VSTs and sample packs.

>Can't you make it all on a computer using headphones
That's what I've been doing, since around 2012, and a couple of years ago I bought some monitors to work on stuff when no one is home, which is pretty much never. The mixes always go to shit and become lifeless because I'm still learning and trying to carve out a style. There is probably about a couple weeks or less of actual "studio" days where I could work on mixes through these speakers for a few hours since I got them around 2015. While I enjoy working with VSTs and such, I want to record more instruments like guitars, drums, percussion, and even my shitty voice if I can get it better. Whatever I'm doing and have been doing for the past few years isn't working out and for the first time in my life, I'm beginning to consider that it isn't just me being trash, it's also my environment.
>>
>>88293270
In my case I don't think it's lack of inspiration. I was working on my Dreams remix yesterday and came up with some good ideas that I want to expand upon but today I was just dreading having to go back to work tomorrow for another 50+ hour week. Sitting here telling myself I was going to do some work so I could come home at a reasonable time... nah.
By the way, do we have a list of all the Dreams remixes? I vaguely remember two: one by a guy who sang the vocals himself and another one that I remember existing but can't remember what it sounded like.

this one is supposed to be a lofi beat, starts with chill guitar, transitions into a bluegrassy lick which was supposed to more midwestern, then the beat. Recorded with my laptop mic, the bluegrass bit is recorded with my electric unplugged in emajadd9 tuning.

The sooner you leave /prod/ and make music for yourself the better. Been here for years and I'm sick of my music being ripped to shreds when in reality it isn't THAT bad.

>>
>>88293048
>>88293366
I can relate to these texts: it sucks to make compromises.

You cannot except to mix good with only your headphones especially if you are a beginner.

When you have more instruments/stuff going on: In fact, you cannot even make good mixes while playing them quiet or moderate: you need good monitors, you need to blast them and you need to know what the fuck is going on.

Because I have limited time to play my songs during any day, I just focus on trying to record quality tracks and saving everything for later use. It gives me peace of mind that I still have all the stuff ready to go, it is all down to mixing it right maybe some day when I get the chance to actually sacrifice few weeks for the whole process. Currently I am just focusing on raw mixes.

all kinds of stuff except classical i guess. I'd love to be good enough to make good shit in any genre of popular music. Dub, reggae, synthpop, funk, RnB, rock, at least some noob tier simple jazz or jazz-influenced pop, acid house, cumbia, trip hop, trap, cuban son, experimetnal stuff anything that comes to mind..It'd be a dream come true. That's virtually impossible for me though. I'm a poor CS student from a shithole country, so my time is very limited. But I want to try to get as far as I can in music

Yep. And I of course made the mistake of getting JBL LSR305s which do not output its full frequency range unless it's at a moderately full volume (aka too loud..)

>I just focus on trying to record quality tracks and saving everything for later use
This is what I would do but I rely heavily on dynamics. So i need some things to be quiet and some things to be super loud. I also think I'm going to want to start composing around lyrics. I guess doing it the way you're describing might be my only option but I hate working through a track when I'm not happy with how it sounds overall. Good luck on your endeavors. I like to think producers like us will be able to put a lot of soul in our work when we finally get the environment we need.
>>
Do you guys have any tips on treating the high frequencies of hats, tops, and stuff like that? For Electronic music more precisely.

My mixes often sounds "papery", I use a lot of loop samples of tops and shit, but it looks like it makes my mixes busy in the high end, but it's not cristal clear and clean.
>>
>>88298158
just put soundgoodizer on the master
>>
>>88297982
Even if you have good monitors, it has been nightmare to mix bass frequencies on low volumes. You always, and I mean always, end up compensating too much when playing the songs too quiet

The bass is all over the place in all of my mixes currently because I try to mix when other people are around etc. end up playing them with really moderately low volumes: then I when I get to blast them or listen them at my friends house for a reference: too much bass, way too much bass.

It is the only frequency I cannot master currently and just the reason is that I cannot mix loud
>>
>>88297982
>I like to think producers like us will be able to put a lot of soul in our work when we finally get the environment we need.

People like us end up having 6 month projects turning into 4 year endeavors. Sometimes the projects get too big to handle and you lose all perspective: you end up having external hard drives full of material that you need to work through, the piles get bigger and bigger

I am currently at this stage and I am terrified

I can't relate to the papery description. Are you willing to post a example? I think a common problem folks run into is having too much freq content stomping in the same freq range domain- not doing enough subtractive eq to push each percussive element into its space, or just not treating high frequencies at all and having them pile up in a shrill pile of 8khz.

>>88298511
I'm already in a stage like that. I have HUNDREDS of live sets and there are only a handful I come back to try and work on. When I have the fucking time to actually, y'know, practice a skill like a normal hobbyist would, I will find a way to make decent tracks. I don't want to stick to a certain genre, but I do have perspective. And most importantly, I'm too stubborn to quit because I don't enjoy anything else in life the way I do when I'm creating sounds. I have to stop myself from listening to music at times because I know I'll get too inspired, the ideas will flow and I know I can't do anything with that inspiration at all.

I’m using reaper cause I have no money, recorded the guitars with my laptop mic, played the virtual instruments, programmed the drums, and added the effects how I wanted.

Why is the bottom note of a chord the most important?
Shouldn't it be the top one, since it's the one you hear better?
Like, if I change the bottom one the sound barely changes, but if I change the top one it changes dramatically.
>>
>>88298454
use reference tracks and use span to see at wich levels their bass sits, it helps a bit
>>
>>88298996
Don't know, could have something to do with how we hear pitch. Every note includes the harmonic series and the loudest is the lowest while the overtones are gradually quieter the higher the pitch in acoustic instruments and vocals
>>
>>88299178
But the fundamental of the top note isn't necessarily lower than the fundamental of the bottom one.
>>
>>88299193
True, I'm just saying that's how pitch is in nature. What do you mean by 'most important' anyway. You could argue it isn't since melody which is higher is more important than bass.
>>
>>88298996
It depends, I mean I don’t know if it’s considered as such. But you can invert your chords, and they’ll have a different quality. Like if I play C D F# A, maybe with the C and octave lower than D, it’ll sound different than D F# A C definitely, and play it two octaves lower and it’ll sound even more different, then you can rearrange the order you play the notes to C F# A D and it’ll be the same chord and sound different. It’s just depends, it’s important in the fact that in a triad it denotes the root, but of course you can invert triads and whatnot.
>>
>>88299243
Neither are more important than the other, they both are symbiotic and rely on each other. You need to lead in the bass and in the higher registers. Your bass will establish intervalic and rhythmic relationships with your melody which will give them more sense.
>>
>>88299243
By 'most important' I mean that it defines what chord it is and is called the "root".
Or for example, every time I've seen someone make chords out of a melody they took the line and added notes on top, making the melody the bottom notes of the chords.

>>88299248
Of course, but outside of inversions it kinda is.
>>
>mfw my tracks always sound better before I start "mixing"
>>
>>88299305
I don't think that's been answered. Its like asking why do people prefer diatonic music to noise based music. Who knows? Why is music, why are we here?
>>
>>88299547
>Its like asking why do people prefer diatonic music to noise based music
But that's a fact of life, not a rule that somebody made.
Nobody decided that diatonic music sounds better than noise, but the bottom note being considered more important is something that people decided.
What I'm asking is, why did they decide that?

Very impressive Soundcloud! Lots of good stuff on there, I like the Piano tracks you have, and your compositions vary alot.
I'm not a pro by any means but also put more time into mixing/mastering.

https://soundcloud.com/vince-vantronic/dreams
This one could use more punch and I think some of the higher frequencies you could reduce

>>88296793
This one I like
I think it could be improved if you can give the Harmonics and/or Instrumentation a bit more Variation at a point.
One Idea would be to have the Bassline also do a little melody at one point, where the other instruments give mostly Chords/Appregio for Atmosphere
And maybe introduce a new Instrument in the middle frequencies to fill out the sound more
I know you want it to sound calming and not hectic, but maybe you can also find more sounds to use in the drums for variation

>>88297421
I like the Harmonics of this and the classy kind of sound it has to it with the base and Piano, great stuff so far.
You could find more different motives to alternate with.
You might also want to experiment with maybe putting a Soundgoodizer in the Master to see what different mastering can do to give it bit more punch and crisp.

The guy who set up western tonality wouldn't have said the root of a triad is the 'most important' note of a chord. As you say, others don't treat it as the most important. Simon and Garfunkel for instance
>>
>>88299697
But a lot of people still treat it as the main note, or the "foundation" so to speak.
Why is that?
I mean, it works from a music theory perspective, but why?
>>
https://instaud.io/3NkV
Kinda just screwed around, might make into a full song. I feel like the mixing on the lead is weird, should I do something with it or am I just hearing things?

Sorry for not making that clear.

I don't know, just how music in a given key works like I said its a mystery. Could be because we're familiar with it, as in conditioned to accept it, or it could be inherent in humanity but probably not so much as equal temperament isn't a natural division of pitch system, or both
>>
>>88299724
> a tone with a frequency of 300 Hz and another with a frequency of 200 Hz are both multiples of 100 Hz (100 × 3 and 100 × 2 respectively). Their interval is, therefore, an aggregate of the second and third partials of the harmonic series of an implied fundamental frequency 100 Hz.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_intonation

A higher note can seem like an overtone of a lower notes fundamental rather than independent of it. Maybe that's your answer
>>
>>88299879
I'm not talking about familiarity at all.
I'm not sure we're on the same page.

>>88300020
But that's the opposite of what happens.
The top note doesn't get "blended" in the lower note's overtones, but is more audible.
Even when playing chords with sine waves (so no overtones involved) the top is the most noticeable and the one that makes the most difference in the sound.
>>
https://instaud.io/3Nll

Any advice regarding the mixing/mastering? I completely suck at it.

When exporting the master (in Ableton) should I check the "normalize" box? I believe it's not good because it raises the master level artificially, am I right?.
>>
>>88300063
Are you trolling now, who says higher notes makes the most difference and are more noticeable apart from you? I'm out, why don't you research it yourself if you're really into the subject
>>
>>88300143
Maybe I'm weird, but if I make a chord and I change the top one it makes much more difference than if I change the bottom one.

In fact, when I want to whistle or hum a chord, it's always the top line, not the bottom.

Doesn't that make it the most noticeable?
>>
>>88300282
A melody isn't a chord
>>
>>88300297
I'm starting to think you're the one who's trolling here.
>>
>>88300340
You understand that when you hum a note of a triad, it could be the root you're humming in a higher register?
>>
>>88300419
Yes I do understand that.
What I'm saying is that that's never the case.
I mean, I'm not deaf, I can tell which note of the chord I'm humming, and it's always the top.
>>
>>88300501
You mean the fifth?
>>
>>88300510
If it's a normal triad, yes.
Or even if it's not, or if there's an inversion or something, the top one is always the most apparent.
>>
>>88300523
The bottom note of a chord isn't the most important. Music theory could have labelled pitches and pitch functions differently but it didn't.

you got some good ideas going on with your synths there but your drums are kinda lacking, especially the kick feels like it should be more dominant. I really like the last 15 seconds but the lead melody isn't enough to carry the rest of the track imo.
>>
Hello I'm fucking retarded and I'd like to ask if someone could please spoonfeed me a little bit so that I won't blow money on shit that won't help me.
I've read the pastebin/reddit FAQ but shit's not clicking for me because I have smallbrain.

I want to record (bass)guitar on PC. What is the bare minimum I need?
I understand that I need a digital audio workstation, which is no problem because I've been pirating shit all my life.
But how do I actually get the sound into my PC?
What's the thing called that will let me plug my instruments into my PC without making use of an amplifier or microphone?
>>
>>88302557
I really like this. Have you considered adding some bass?
>>
>>88302877
An audio interface.
>>
>>88302796
>your drums are kinda lacking, especially the kick feels like it should be more dominant

Noted. Gonna play around with it more

>but the lead melody isn't enough to carry the rest of the track imo

Yep I kind of just threw in the last part because I wanted some kind of transitional cooldown so it could somehow segue into the beginning melody.
thx
>>
>>88302931
Thanks anon!
>>
>>88302915
Thanks, yeah i have. I'm thinking of adding a simple drone-y bass string section as the bass in the first half, since the other instruments were all bouncing off each other
