https://instaud.io/3Nswone day, I don't know why>>88306607it's shit
>>88305698purr data is SS tier
>>88306607really not bad. real slick production quality, but you kind of get the idea as soon as the beat comes in. no real song development. heres what I've been working on today.https://clyp.it/wlywnwa4
>>88307177Holy shit those drums, and are those samples? WTf dude
Meme of the day
is it worth getting a good mic? https://instaud.io/3Nq0
>>88307538Not really if you're going to process your vocals that much. Just stick to the under $100 range.
>>88307598you could hear the lyrics?
>>88307644Yeah, most of the parts I actually listened to but you should chill with the stutter effect.
Let's all cover "Feedback" by BoA and give each other feedback on it based on our experience making our covers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oo-LPNYc5qo
>>88308002what do you think of the lyrical quality?
>>88307538>is it worth using quality gear?yeah no shit but wtf are you doing dude lol>>88306607you really just had to get back on clyp huh?it's bad dude, sorry
https://clyp.it/4venfrdvtell me how shitty this is.Also, we should check out some of the featured clyps for next week. They're pretty damn good sketches.
>>88308492im spitting bars my dudewhat else am i doing
>>88308336That's irrelevant because judgement of lyrics is a 100% opinion matter. It's your art, if you like it it's right.
>>88308548>we should check out some of the featured clyps for next weekWhat?
>>88308586whats your opinion, thenif you dont mind...
>>88308586he asked what YOU thought of it you fucking pseud>>88308554lol i'm sorry man i have zero idea what the fuck you're going for >>88308548i'd fuck with it not including the vocals ll
>>88308648>lol i'm sorry man i have zero idea what the fuck you're going forhelp me out bro whats wrong
>>88308648would you like the instrumental to rap over?
>>88308548>>88308672What featured clyps?The ones on the clyp.it homepage?What do you mean "for next week"?>They're pretty damn good sketchesFor what?
>>88308724no fookin thanks m808>>88308690those chords. endless beat repeat on a shitty beat. spoken word with zero rhythmthere're no redeeming qualities here man i would straight scrap that shit honestlyif anything i KIND OF get a "vibe" that's.... creepy i guess
>>88308767clyps are usually stuff that's like below a minute. I call those musical sketches. if you had an account, you'd see on the top of your screen 'Vote for Next Week's Featured Clips". that's it.>>88308781you said you fw the beat tho.
>>88308897mb, thought you were the other dudeeither way i meant fuck with it as in i like itget an x vibe lol
>>88308636Didn't like it, but I only like poetic goth themes so you do you.
>>88308951yeah haha. i'm the one who made the beat / rapped over it. i was totally going for a grungy feel.
https://instaud.io/3Nuhalright guys is this better?
>>88309147you sound like you have a lot free time in your hands. chop&screw that shit to a viper-esque feel. ur vocals are p lo-fi
why do people put irredeemably discordant & ugly things out into the world?
>>88309219some people like discordant and ugly things
>>88309231he means early demarcus tier no idea what the fuck they're doing non-musical even to people who like discordant things kind of shit>>88309219imagine you're a complete noob with the idea that they could ever sound good being completely unachievable- they're probably desperate for a "oh it's not THAT bad"
>>88305698It's nice not seeing PreSonus StudioOne not even on the tierlist. actually the worst dogshit DAW I've ever worked with, anyone else ever used this shovelware?
In Live 9.5 how do I midi type a note at full velocity? It defaults to 80%
>>88310544>It defaults to 80%c and v are the shortcuts you duncez and x shift octaves in case you didn't know that either :^)
>>88310544Press V on your keyboard to increase the velocity (by 20 I think) and C to reduce it.Alternatively, ALT-drag a note up and down (or just use the vertical lines on the bottom bar) to alter its velocity to a specific value, and all the notes you'll make after that will have that velocity.
https://clyp.it/2x4xouchThoughts on how to improve this hot garbage?
>>88309219People have to start somewhere.
4 LUFS PLUS I THINK MAYBE TURN IT DOWN?maybe tone it down and i think it's done??? or not idkhttps://instaud.io/3Nvj
>>88310592lol calm down, chief. Thanks anyway.>>88310605Thanks anon.
>>88310622Here I made it better brohttps://clyp.it/00lqjhpx
>>88307218sounds like amen break samples, or something very "jungle"
Can /prod/ recc any essential books on composition and production?

i got really high and made this for u guys youre welcomehttps://instaud.io/3NvQ
>>88311480No soundcloud. Fuck off
>>88311977I can dig it man but wheres the bass?t. earphone user
So I finally bit the bullet and bought a guitar synth + guitar that has a midi pickup, not even knowing if this would work.It came in this morning.>Its fucking unbelievable>I can use my guitar instead of a midi keyboard controller now>It works in drop C
>>88311480My bad I'm in the wrong thread I can't delete
>>88312601>midi pickupas a mediocre keyboardist idk why it never occurred to me to do this <.<sounds fun man
>>88312856Look into the graph tech piezo system, pair that with a roland GR-55 and you have it retrofitted to any electric for about $1000, its descrete, and you dont need to lose your pickups Midi guitars were a thing since the 80s, but holy fuck, sometime in the last 5 or so years, like every problem that made them suck has been worked out.Plus now I can just load up ANY guitar tone, from acoustic, nylon, bass guitar, etc. And it has midi outBruh, if I really wanted to, I could turn probably my house lights on with a DMaj7 ChordOr at least have the lights change in sync on stage ;)
Thoughts on this?https://instaud.io/3NwcI wanted to record guitar over it, but my interface isn't cooperating. I can only get it to record on fresh new tracks and don't know how to get it to record in a WIP.
>>88313052>I can only get it to record on fresh new tracksread the manual about what all the buttons on the top do bro why direct x when you have an interface lol
>>88313052>record guitar>186ms latencythis is the same amount of time it would take to ping a server in Australia, and I'm in New JerseyEven if you get it to work, the delay between when you play and when you hear what you are recording will be like 1.5 seconds
>>88313191>will be like 1.5 secondsWhy would it be almost 8x the latency?
>>88313236I can't play reliably at anything above 11ms input latency, I can't even create 186ms latency to test, but if the goal is to record guitar, it will be irrelevant how long it actually is
>>88313191Yeah I was having that problem when recording guitar. How do I reduce latency?
>>88313356Well first I need to know what we're working with.What is your interface model?
>>88313052https://instaud.io/3NwDI cleaned it up, gave it some form and took out the drum loop. Didn't feel like it fit.Am I beatiful music yet?
>>88313388It's a Zoom H4. I'm pretty sure I broke it somehow.
>>88313388>>88313910Also I plan on replacing it with A Focusrite 2i4 and an AT2020 soon. I figure that should fix most of my problems.
>>88305698Whats a good MIDI controller for like 150-250?
>>88314041seems like a driver issue stemming from using DirectXHave you tried this and changed your driver to the H4 if possiblehttps://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/using-the-zoom-h4n-as-an-audio-interface/>>88314041That would definitely work too.
>>88314063Do you want pads? Lots of knobs? Sliders? All of that? None of that? How many keys do you want? If you're not sure -- what kind of music do you want to make?I just use a keystep because I can rest it on my lap and the keys are nice and firm (in a good way).
>>88314063they're all the same in that price range, just buy something you recognize the brand of that has what you want
>truly based DAW
https://clyp.it/uvnb5xm1how awkward is this? I've only got earbuds so i can't mix, recorded the guitar with my laptop mic. I mean awkward as in the segments transitioning, I just wanted an interesting piano intro, and a relaxed outro, but i feel I should take the outro out
Does this sound weird? I made it in 3/4 instead of 4/4. https://clyp.it/wz0kryn0
>>88309219Ask that to your mother
https://instaud.io/3NxPAm I beautiful music yet?
https://instaud.io/3Nll>Spooky Horror SynthAny advice regarding mixing/mastering? I feel it sounds too flat (but so was the original material...)
>>88316016https://clyp.it/wz0kryn0Yeah. If you're going for 3/4 you need some kind of rhythm that clearly indicates 3/4. It just feels really weird and ambiguous right now.>>88315872That bass and kick are really fat through my speakers. Probably not what you're going for.Those really quiet parts are hard to hear
>>88305698>haven't made a song in weeks>i feel fineWhat does this mean?
>>88316512 aight thanks man, sucks having just buds.
>>88305698What would be vst for korg electribe ea-1?Also what produces effects, sound of spongy spring bouncyness in these?https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Akp_xwYYU-E [Open]Please list how you would reproduce some of the sounds, they are unique and they are nice.
https://instaud.io/3NyT is the voice too much ??
>>88316752music isn't the only thing you've got going for you and you probably have a lifeasshole
>>88317419Very nice, liked the liquidy theme of it. Would definitely listen to this on my own time. For the bass synth that gets introduced after the intro, I'd mess with EQ and some filters. It feels a little anticlimactic. Maybe have it pan left and right on the notes that hang occasionally.
>>88316752It happens to me too. When I'm away from producing, I feel better, because being shit at it and having never achieved anything irl in that area impacts my self esteem.On the other end, I feel like shit when I don't play guitar for a while (even back in the day when I was mediocre at it).
>>88305698Reason and Ableton SS tier, FL Studio F Tier
>>88317750Renoise is SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS+++++++++++++++ tier.
>>88317750>>88317759but think of it this wayreason is horizontalrenoise is verticalboth have their own ways and advantages in producingand now look at this ableton motherfucked its usage, composition potential is calculated horizonal multiplied by vertical getting a huge damn 2d area approaching the capabilities of metaphysical imagination tier universe
>>88314041why focusrite and not tascam f.e. us-2x2 or us-4x4explain this assfuckery pls
i feel like improvement in my production happens in random breakthroughs, like one day i woke up and leveled up in my sleep. does anyone else experience this?
why the fuck is audiosex full of these weird as fuck 80 IQ boomer faggotshttps://audiosex.pro/threads/please-check-your-beliefs-in-to-history-and-what-is-going-on-in-the-world.44530/
>>88305698Hpw do I make melodies and chords with IL's vocodex? Can you modulate the notes somehow?I'm using Live 10 btw
>>88318084Almost every time I decide to start a song I get exponentially better. It's bizarre. One day I'll make a professional high quality track all of a sudden.
I am making a cover of this song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mq39047fywI got the intro pretty much finished, before the piano part starts. How does it compare soundwise? am I missing something? I don't intend to make totally identical cover, but at least try to keep up the standard of the original song so to speak...https://instaud.io/3NAI
>>88318954I think the string section sounds thicker in the original, but your version is interesting in its own way.Do you use Kontakt for that stuff?
>>88319085>Do you use Kontakt for that stuff?It is a 50/50 mix of Garritan Personal Orchestra sound library and a free VST called "Sonatina Orchestra"

>>88319294Famous still though lolfamous producers know me
>>88319294and dont call me faggot pleb
>>88319314fuck off faggot
How would you improve this mix, I used mostly broad stroke eq's as practicehttps://clyp.it/bvv4h3ju
>>88319085>>88318954I added some lower string section to get some "thickness" but I don't know... maybe it sounds too bombastic nowhttps://instaud.io/3NBtI am also a bit newbie mixer so I try to keep the bass(iness) in control because I always end up having too much bass in my final mixes.
>>88319412>https://instaud.io/3NBtI mean brass section
>>88318103oh god I should repost this on /pol/
>>88318103Forums are a dying internet culture and only boomers would still remain there. Gearslutz can be insane too at times with some of the stupid stuff I read there.
>>88318103>musician>internet evangelistThat's two marks on the "are you a retard" bingo card.
It sounded good as it was, just not as massive as the original (which isn't a bad thing). Now it's very brass-y.
>>88319846>Gearslutz can be insaneHow so?I don't go there very often, just when I need info on a specific topic. I noticed some people are insufferable. There's this evil dragon guy in particular that I see everywhere who's a complete shill.Also, I can't stand how they get excited like manchildren each time a new plugin comes out (take my money! :^)
>>88319846>>88320425Gearslutz has made me more than often on the verge of buying stupid shit I don't needI think some product shillers are tactically posting there. I always wait for a 2 weeks before doing a purchase on equipment or any other stuff, and if I still want it after that 2 week period: I probably get itWorst thing is you get some money to spend and start to browse gearslutz for reviews etc... the people there are also never satisfied, even though some do admit that its down to your mixing/mastering making the songs sound good, equipment/software will not save you in the end.
>>88319302>famous producers know meLike who?
>>88319364>404you might as well delete the entire post you faggot
>normies start talking about autotune>always believe their favourite artist doesnt use it>cant comprehend its use as an effect>believe it can magically transform non existent ability into a decent sounding voice>always think artists who they dont like it use it for no reason other than no real actual criticisms.holy shit why is this so infuriating
>>88320425More often than not it takes a single post to derail the entire thread into some reddit existential philosophy debate or 'you take two oscillators and detune them then what 2.0'. It also goes on my nerves how some of the people there say modern music is no good and then post baby's first psytrance and berlin school made on a damn waldorf quantum or something like that with a badge of five to ten years of experience they actually don't have. Moreover I recently saw a thread about some girl on 10 minutes against the clock by fact magazine who absolutely screwed up which was an incentive for some really ugly leftist opinions to show up about how all music is equal, it's all about fun and garbage like that. Like you said there's also the typical whalers that you see in absolutely every thread like evildragon, zerocrossing (the rick and morty dude), that xanders guy with the blue hair that always talks about his depression and shills his shit at the same time, don solaris who posts some condescending bullshit etc. The only really good poster I've seen there is NawSon. He's a bit of a jaded boomer in relation to modern music and never posts his music but he always hits the nail on the head when people try to bullshit him. EvilDragon has been called out as an arturia shill numerous times if I remember correctly. It's also bizarre to me how easily people there get baited into buying another synth or gadget time and time again only to see it get praised and then sold later on to get replaced by the next cool thing.
>>88321613>people have dumb opinions about things they don't know aboutIt's normal.I'm sure you have equally uninformed opinions on things that you deal with but aren't knowledgeable about.Except this:>always think artists who they dont like it use it for no reason other than no real actual criticisms.This is unacceptable and you should say away from anyone who thinks/acts like this.
how the fuck do i install omnisphere?? i did all steps but i dont get what this means" When the update has been installed, select "Finish.” Now it's time to open Omnisphere 2 in your host and authorize it."please help
>>88321892put omnisphere on a track in your dawopen the instrument guiit will want your licence keyenter that
>>88321941its not showing up in my plugins, using ableton live 9
>>88321981link the folder you installed the plugin dll to in your ableton settings or move the file to whatever folder you're usingguess it wasn't installing to the standard plugin folder you're using
>>88322023i installed it to my plugins folder. same problem happened for autotune. should i just update to a newer version of ableton?
>>88322073nodid you rescan the folder in the ableton settings
>>88322073Are you sure you installed the correct version?Is your Ableton 32 or 64 bit?You need to install the matching version (vst2 if your version is older than 10.1, since that's where vst3 gets first supported).
>>88322138well that worked, but now i got the 'authorization system' up. i dont have a license key as i downloaded the crack, but im not sure how to crack it because im not sure what file to select
Have you guys lost your projects in some sort of hardware malfunction I mean lots of stuff you aint getting back? I am doing backups right now because paranoid...
>>88322214read the instructions that come with itread them again if you have any questions left

So I'm still in Windows 7 trying to run ProTools. The latest version does not support Win7; I have to run an older version. This older version of ProTools does not support iLok Cloud. I can either1. Give in and upgrade to Win10 with all its botnet through https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/2. Suck it up and buy an iLokHelp.
>>88322244read them many times, there was none for authorization unfortunately. i dont know how to crack it
>>88322227yeah I lost 2 2tb disks recently but only lost about a day of workbackup your important shit all the time
>>88322278nothing of any importance was added to protools since 12.3 in late 2015, you're fine using that
>>88317419Holy shit this is great. What are you using for that funky lead sound?

What do you guys use to send your projects/tracks via cloud? Google docs are kinda meh
>>88326603zippy through discord lolgoogle slow as shit
>>88305698why you disrespecting my boy LMMS
>>88310701I like it :)
>>88327195OH BOY A REPLY!!! :DDDyeah i just toned down the compression to bring it down to a reasonable volume, changed the ending a bit and called it through it in the done pile. Thanks tho (:
>>88327294you're welcome pal :]]
What's a good distortion pedal to go with my drum machine? Something that will give it a bit more oomph and pump up the low end (though pumping up the mids and highs would be good too). The Elektron Heat looks interesting but seems pretty expensive for what it is.
>>88320509>>88321669This. Also, and I know it's a super minor thing, but boomers on there unironically say 'heh' a lot and it annoys me so fucking much. Fuck boomers btw I hope they rot in hell. Jupiter 8 is a shitty overrated synth.
>>88328407Also have this same question.I’m getting some good kick tones out of a tube amp, but the thing is huge and a pedal would probably be better I’m guessing
What's the first piece of hardware you'd personally buy and why?It can be pricey, but don't pick something ridiculous like Yamaha CS80
>>88328466>implying everyone is as newb as you
>>88328466My first was an Octatrack, and if I had to do it all again I would still go with an Octatrack!
I’m angry and want to make some hard music What scale?
>>88328466Mine was a Casio keyboard, but then got a groovebox, followed by a kurzweil k2000
>>88328457Tube Screamer clone - Behringer make them and so do lots of other smaller brands like Danelectro.>>88328407For moar distortion I've used a Boss HM-2 (Heavy Metal) in the past, it has enough tone control to be useful. Metal Zone might work even if they're pure comedy for guitars in unmodded form.
>>88328466zero hardware -guitar pedals because guitar herecompletely depends on what you want to make lolPERSONALLY if money weren't an option and not going to extravagant: monomachine because sophie etc, an electric piano (maybe a nord or yamaha idk)>>88328602that one that's like natural minor but the 2 is diminished idr the name lel>>88328457>>88328407>>88328775>Tube Screamer clonethat one and the ocd overdrive are cloned by joyopretty popular, i've got the ultimate drive (ocd) and i can vouch that it's solid... was like 30 bucks i think lmao>>88328841all of those except 3 are fucking stupidchange 2 to theory in general
>>88328874>all of those except 3 are fucking stupid>change 2 to theory in generalThey're all /prod/ memes dude.It's not an actual list that anyone is following.
>>88328889aware of the memes, i thought the joke was supposed to be >"haha i get nothing done depression lmao :(">It's not an actual list that anyone is following.anon's unironically post do all of those what are you talking about, it's just not a list
>>88328466Yamaha SHS 10 because it was like 10 bucks and it looked cool. Also I was 9 or 10.If I was buying my first now it would just be a cheap ASIO audio interface and a midi controller with at least 3 octaves and some decent headphones.
>>88328929>aware of the memes, i thought the joke was supposed to be >"haha i get nothing done depression lmao :("Yes that's the joke, but it's based on the /prod/ memesHow else should it be?Please, make a different list that would make a better meme.>anon's unironically post do all of thoseTHAT'S WHY THEY'RE /PROD/ MEMESI didn't make them out of thin air>it's just not a listExactly.Why the fuck are you being so pedantic about a detail of a meme?Are you the guy who doesn't laugh at jokes and goes pic related because the joke isn't an accurate and fair portrayal of the subject?What kind of retardation is this?
>>88329077>i'm the pedantic onechill the fuck out it's just a meme dude lol
>>88329111Go fuck yourself.I know it's just a meme.You don't.You barely understand the concept of a joke, and now all of a sudden you're pretending that you don't care, coincidentally after I've intellectually fondled you like a creepy uncle.Consider yourself schooled son.
>>88321892Omnisphere can be annoying to crack. The torrent should come with instructions, usually a .nfo file that you can open with notepad/text editI'm on Windows but generally the process is like this:1. install all discs of omnisphere2. update the libraries with the provided updater3. replace plugin/system files with the provided cracked files, or use the provided crack/keygen.exe to manually crack your plugin files4. use the keygen to generate codes, put them into omnisphereIf your torrent doesn't have instructions or doesn't have the necessary cracks/patches, find another. Last one that worked for me was R2R. If you've already got the steam libraries installed, all you need is the shit from steps 2 through 4
>>88329175arguing back and forth is bad for /prod/ anoni was being a dick, i'm sorry
>>88329486Thanks for being sorry.
>>88329486well to be fair it was a pretty bad meme
>>88329077god, you are so easy to spot even when you are anonymous
Where can I go to discuss Eurorack that isn’t Muff wiggler (that place is shit)

>remember a song from a year ago that has sounds that would fit new song>no fucking idea how to find that project file because too many songs to come up with unique/fitting names every time
I know the 808 is pretty shit, but what else can I improve on?https://clyp.it/mxawrcgn
>>88329842>not exporting a wav of every project you make even if shit
>>88329856I DO, THAT'S WHY I CAN'T FIND IT!!!not *every* song but anything that isn't complete shit and reaches at least a minute without being a shitty loop
>>88329856also fuck you i just found it 120 wavs in
>>88329851Maybe add more note variation to the string pluck sound. Longer release on the kick too.
>>88329914you are welcome
https://clyp.it/user/kzosebcgIs the production on these tracks any good?
>>88330007bruh your mixing still sucks and your songs are still goodjust get somebody to help you lol
every track I've worked on this month has been using lydian. I think I have a problem.
>>88330030fuck I have no idea what i'm doing lol. I don't know anybody who mixes or anything
>>88330255How u sposta make a 541 with a diminished 4 nigga?
>>88330374I don't pls no bully
>>88330374Well...The 4 chord would have the octave in it, so it shouldn't sound too bad, especially if you invert it such that it seems a weird color of the 1 and then kinda raises into the tonic.Not at a keyboard rn so I can't test that though.
>>88330609Falls, meant to say falls into the tonic.

Are there any MIDI keyboards that have very good piano action? If those don't exist, are there any good digital pianos with MIDI inputs? I'd prefer 88 keys as well but 61 is fine

>>88330968Here you go:https://www30.zippyshare.com/v/6TuL6xfZ/file.htmlYou need to click on the peeplink links (in the body of the OP or in the comments) and download it from the filesharing sites linked in them.The above link is from this link:https://peeplink.in/deaba4e18b45posted by the user "The Pirate" in the comment section.
>>88331041you are too kind anonshit's isp blocked for me and i'm noidedso people post alternative links to help people get around the slow downloads or whatever?and is it too soon to know if this version is reliable or not?
>>88331103Get one of these:https://peeplink.in/8c7b277463b6Rockfile and Uploadboy are the fastest.As far as reliability, I don't know yet, but if it's a legit release then you have nothing to worry about.Keep a close eye on the comments to see if people notice anything sketchy before it gets removed.
>>88331209oh so the zippy link is sus? :(BETTER NOT RISK ITty for catering to me
>>88331265>oh so the zippy link is sus? :(No.All the links should be the same file.I mean the source is suspect (as with every single pirated file), so if you're worried, wait and see if people notice anything sketchy.But desu the likelyhood of you getting malware from AudioZ is extremely small.I've been downoading from it for many years and never got anything.>ty for catering to menp.

>>88334082it's technically not required but you're shooting yourself in the foot by avoiding it

Gear related question I am too stupid to find answer for. Help a brainlet out....I am buying a pair of decent headphones (or somewhat high end), either Sennheiser Hd650 or hd600My current setup, as in picture, is Laptop -> Dac -> Studio Monitors (Presonus Eris E3.5)Now I have been using headphones that have impendance 2x32ohms. (They came with the speakers when I bought them)These Sennheiser 650 have impendance of Impedance 300 Ohm. Do I need an external headphone amplifier to get most out of those 300 ohm headphones? My DAC has no headphone output, the only way I can plug the HD650s headphones is is through my studio monitors headphone output ( https://www.presonus.com/products/Eris-E35/tech-specs )I don't want to plug them in straight to my laptop either for obvious reasons...Can I purhcase those HD650s or do I need to purchase some equipment?
Why does bitwig keep adding gay unnecessary shit that no one wants? Like bro, why the fuck do my clips still now update when I end it them on the arranger?
>>88332204Your timing is pretty awkward. Practice with a metronome. Not a fan of the notes of that electric piano line. Especially with how sloppy it is. On my speakers the bass and snare are way louder than everything else.
How do you organize your Serum tables?I just started messing with it again after not touching it for some months and figure I should do another round of making some in bulk, but I have severe autism about keeping my presets organized lol
>>88305698Ableton looks so ugly why do people like it so much?
>>88337276weeds out the plebs
>>88312601Can you jam this hard with it?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3SGlCnNmh0
>>88337276Because bitwig doesn't have enough features yet
can't figure out how to sync samples in ableton, i just don't get it. why are the guys in the videos talking about downbeats, it shouldn't be that complicated.
>>88305698OK guys, I've installed FL. What are essential native plugins that I could use as a beginner? What drum machine and synth should I use?
>>88335513Replace your stand alone dac with an audio interface - it will have the outputs you need for headphones and monitors
How do you cope with the fact that if you didn't release anything serious (aka make it, even just a little) before you're 30, all your efforts would have been useless and that you'll have to let it go if you have self respect.Is there another "scene" where you're done if you're not young enough?
>>88338889Not true, you could always become a eurorack nerd or a metal autist. I'm p sure 2chainz became well known in his late thirties.
>>88305698How do I make my toms sound like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PyvU9iSq50I have EZDrummer 2 and I've tried a bunch of kits (not all) and messed around with the EQ but I can't get it.
>>88338994Sure, you can find late bloomers here and there, but usually, they were in the music scene since their teensIf you didn't make anything good by 30, it probably means you just don't have it in you and you wasted a lot of time chasing something you will never have.Obviously, I'm not even talking of becoming a popstar (that's a lame ambition), but just a musician who's somewhat respected.I'm telling you, musicians picked a cruel hobby. If you're not discouraged by the industry, then it will be your body who will let you down (your ears will probably be fucked by the time you're 40).>2chainzA quick look at his wiki page will tell you he was active for 15 years before he broke out>metal autistI can't think of any decent band who started out late. Mastodon maybe?
https://youtu.be/0gxdeaMJv1k?t=46can someone tell me the effect on this guys voice to make his verse kind of delay into itself?
>>88338394sytrus is a pretty decent synth to begin with imo
>>88338889Efforts are never wasted when it’s a hobby.Thankfully when I was young I realized there was no money in music, so I chose a different career path.
>>88339912Even for many acts people likes, music is still a hobby. If you get into it for anything else than the music, it's quite unhealthy. But on the other hand, validation is important, and most of us will never know it.It's as if you're training for a marathon, but eventually, you can't go out and participate to the contest because it's denied to you.
why does ableton take a million years to open and close projects
>>88339912>so I chose a different career pathnothing to do with you not making it?
>>88339976I wouldn’t consider someone’s career path a hobby. Imo hobbies are what you do for fun on the side of your main goals in life
>new serum keygen has shitty trojanthis never happens with legit r2r releases, I'm not sure about this one bros

>>88343400Highly erotic.Please post more.

>>88343443Working my new album to be honest.This one I wrote high and I need to get high more often to finish all the lyrics and write it all down and do the instrumentals and all that shit.But self-promoting is taboo so I can't really tell you who I am.
>>88343533Nobody cares about your life story faggot.Just keep posting the photos.With feet preferably.
>>88343476Fuck off cunt
>>88343565I can show you the feet of my life story if you want, my dear friend. =)
>>88343603Post belly button and bulge.
>>88343533Post a sample on instaud.io then.No need to tell us who you are.
>>88343645What kind of surreal cancer b8 post is this?>>883436https://instaud.io/3NWW66Lyrics were actually made by other anons desu senpai.

>>88343783>What kind of surreal cancer b8 post is this?I'm just tryna get some.
>>88343783>https://instaud.io/3NWWWht kinda retarded shit is this?I can't even understand what you're saying.
>>88343856I think you're in the wrong board then.>>88343917#1 I take that as a compliment.#2 It's trashy ear rape cloud mumble meme rap.I have more serious songs.But I wanted to do a record that was trashier than all my older stuff.Mingling that in combination with lsd and alcohol misuse and you get the product that you're hearin' rn.I will be the next Post Malone.
>>88343960>But I wanted to do a record that was trashier than all my older stuff.But why?
>>88343976Because all these over-produced rock and pop and soul and rnb and rap and metal and techno songs made me numb.I wanna feel something when I make music and when I play it for other people.You might feel anger towards me but it's an emotion. Consider that the next time you listen to 5235 records and realize that you found 10 unique songs in there.
>>88343960>I think you're in the wrong board then.I'm not the one who's not posting feet or belly button.At least tell me, do you ever spend all evening outside on a hot sweaty summer day so you can dip your finger in your belly button and smell it?
>>88342063>>88342093>>88342220>trojanwtf, i didn't get shit and none of the comments said anything either?you're freaking me out stahp>literal whowho is it *supposed* to be?
>>88344094Nothing you pirate will ever be 100% safe.It's part of the deal.Try to reduce yor sources to the most trustworthy (AudioZ, AudioNews, well-commented posts on Rutracker, etc) and have a good antivirus.Other than that, if you don't want to pay there's always a risk.Personally I downloaded it but haven't installed it yet.I'll wait a bit and see if anything comes out.
>mfw blueballed by anon teasing us with one picture and never posting again
>>88307520looks like phaser talking about herself
>>88344479>herselfphaser is a woman?that would explain the neurotic behavior desu
>>88309219you mean like posting it publicly or just making a song
>>88310482I was about to use it but then realized that I was downloading proprietary software and that there were free and open source alternatives available
>>88315515it's lacking a lot of quality of life shit out of the box but yea it's good and you can edit the source code and stuff
>this guy records your production session and makes fun of you on youtubewhat do you do?
>>88322227lost all my shit twice from hard drive failure throughout my life so yesnow I sell my ass to google for cloud backups
How to write songs like this? What is it with jpop that makes it sound like this?https://youtu.be/4MoRLTAJY_0
>>88344006Sadly no. I wash it thrice a week.
>>88345098I don't believe you.Post a high resolution picture so I know you're not lying.Multiple angles if possible.
>>88345007I think it's the Japanese language, but I'm not entirely sure.
>>88345134I will jerk now to Ella Hollywood and Taylor Swift / Salma Hayek / Katy Perry armpits. If you would excuse me. Have a nice day.
>>88345199Where do you cum?Do you let it drip on the floor or you lay on your back to shoot on your big belly?
When did you realize that the only way to make it is to be attractive?
>>88345150There is something else im sure
>>88344094>>88344197check the comments for a serial code, it worked for me without having to use the keygen, also I realized that every serum keygen seems to have this problem not just this one
>>88345981The keygen isn't really the problem (you could always just run it in a VM and use the code on your normal OS).The problem is that ANYTHING you download from an untrusted source has a risk of infecting you.This includes the actual installer.How do you know that the installer is clean?There's no hash to check against, so if you're suspecting the keygen you should also suspect the installer.

Who is massive supposed to be for? It looks like a lot ov work to lern it. Are all synths like that?
>>88338295AAAAA I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT FOR THE PAST 5 HOURS REEEEEE KILL ME
>>88346095No, Massive is one of the easier ones actually.
How do I get over the fact that I can't produce for shit? I've been a 'producer' for like 9 years but I'm the type of dude that stays in his hometown and does nothing to help with the community.I can't get over the fact that I'm a useless pile of shit that can't make good sounds. I only have experience with fucking Wasp. Fucking hell I want to go to school for audio engineering but I don't even understand fully how Saturation works. Seems like fucking everyone is sweeping past me at super high speeds while I'm just here minding my own business doing nothing to improve my sound
>>88338295>sync samplesWhat do you mean?
>>88346143I have experience with a lot of things. I shouldn't have said I only have experience with Wasp, the vst plugin FL Studio has
>>88346143Go take an IQ test and use the certificate they give you to prove you're disabled and can't work, so you can get money from the government.
>>88346211Hahaha fuck you mate.
>>88346234Actually you can skip the IQ test altogether.Just walk in the welfare office without saying anything and they'll give you the money.
>>88346211>live off taxpayer money>lazily produce music and masturbate all day>album actually sells because people want to support a retarded musicianFuck brah, sign me up!
>>88346328If you don't get the joke Dimi, don't ask.
>>88346261Surely they'll blow a couple thousand my way, and I'll surely be able to afford audio engineering school. I'd be a god within my own dwelling. Fantasy plan
>>88346148sync a full song to the master's tempo. warping works well for more recent recordings, but for funk and older stuff, it's a shitshow.
>>88346447Yes.You'll have to warp it manually.Good luck.
>>88346447god damnit man go watch a tutorial instead of shitposting about ityou have to move the fucking warp markers, you can't just expect it to know the bpm and have 100% accurate transient detection on non-pristine recordings
