I really need a midi knob/fader controller. I bought a keystep and while it has an arpeggiator and a sequencer i never use, it does not have any mappable knobs at all. It has one lousy modulation slider. I think need some mappable knobs. I can't decide between the choices i have here though .
1. Buy a knob controller
2. Make your own knob controller
3. Buy another midi keyboard that has mappable controls, but is 32 keys, because of space.

depends on what you have. If you've got a keyboard synth on your desk, try using it as a midi controller.

>did you use third party libraries at all? I'm on top of getting ITB results that are indistinguishable man, its an addiction to me, it's a serious problem in my life. But, i can tell you that fucking nothing holds a candle, and very ew things come even within the same realm of nebula 4 with Tim Petherick, Cupwise, and alexB libraries. Plus azzimov's skins?? ooooof. I hate the damn plugin, fuck the company, but i look at it as a worthwhile price to pay for the sheer results you can achieve ITB with those devs libraries.

I used a few 3rd party ones, hard to remember the name of each one as it was nearly 7 years ago, alexB, Henry Oolonga, plenty of tape and weird cassette deck captures. I agree it's hard to overstate the return in audio quality. Even back then in its buggy state, engineers were selling off entire studios in favor of this.

>The only possible comparison to nebula I've touched or found is external DSPing expansions, like UAD, apogee, etc. But, with audiogridder? shit man, a mac mini c2d from 08 or 09 has me able to run 2-10 or so instances of nebula per track on 12 track projects. no freezing, no dropout, never above 75% cpu, no bouncing tracks. idk, sorry im autistic and passionate about this

This audiogridder thing looks pretty cool, I didn't really catch how it works, does it supply the server side, couldn't see a payment plan?

I'm kinda icky about proprietary Apogee/UAD stuff as well as iLok companies like Softube. Kazrog's True Iron, Analog Obsession and NoiseAsh have some VST plugs that find their way into my workflow, NoiseAsh's Pultec is incredible imho if you just want the ridiculous pleasing air boost thing. There are some amp and gear impulse responses out there that can be used and abused to add grit and 3D to a signal as well.

Do I just have brainrot or why can't I get started making music in Reaper? I used to make music in GarageBand when I was 12. I have used Reaper for years for random shit and learning how DAWs work, but I haven't actually managed to get up a basic setup of musical instrument plugins so that I could actually start making music.

A few years ago I installed free Kontakt Player but setting it up was so freaking convoluted with all the registrations and multi-track routing that I gave up. I've also tried TX16Wx sampler and downloading random sample packs off the internet, but browsing through sounds in file browser is clunky and pretty much doesn't even work in default state unless you know which of the 50 unlabeled buttons to press.

I like how Reaper is lightweight and has powerful features and I have quite bit or experience with it so I don't want to abadon it, but holy shit at this point I just need something user friendly that works out of the box with a reasonable collection of sounds, because my brainrot can't handle it otherwise. Be it plugins or DAW.

Here's a piece I made when I was 13: https://files.catbox.moe/3uer5y.mp3
>>
>>86912346
try hardware. mc101, polyend tracker, circuit rhythm. watch youtube videos to get an idea of what the workflow is like and which you'd prefer, get it, starting making music away from a computer or a phone, when you're comfortable record it back into Reaper or recreate it in Reaper.

Why do a lot of modern DAWs have shitty external midi support like FL for example. I started using Cakewalk and it is great for me since it can do sysex and has proper midi which is really nice for programming synths or using romplers and its free on top of that.

i wish there was a way to smooth out pitch bends done with a computer keyboard/button. like i should be able to trigger an envelope style LFO attached to detune or something... currently i have two keys set up to send CC mapped to pitch bend but it just absolutely and instantaneously moves to the bent position instead of sliding there. so it becomes more of a momentary transpose button rather than vibrato control.
>>
>>86915632
I’m sure there are max devices to trigger that, and ableton also has an automation smooth option (I’d imagine other daws do as wel)

it's cool and all, but the default interface is too compromised by the Touch UI and just sucks on anything productive (i.e., not any touch interface). It really needs a lot of work to compete on UI vs. Renoise or the new hardware trackers. Even something like the edit step: sunvox has +1/-1 hotkeys and a touch UI for 0..16 below the lock icon. Renoise has an equivalent mouse UI but also hotkeys to set a specific edit step. The m8 doesn't have edit steps at all but is fast enough to use that you don't mind. The polyend tracker has an edit step soft key and then you can +1/-1 the value with the jogwheel or use the grid to enter an exact value. Summary: the sunvox has the shittiest keyboard option and a tolerable mouse option. Renoise+polyend let you instantly switch between common edit steps. Result: the first fucking thing you do, lay down some basic drums (edit step 4, edit step 8, edit step 2), is frustrating on sunvox unless you're using an android and don't notice because everything's equally frustrating.

As a LMMS user this is 100% correct.

You can not believe what level of Ear Raping AIDS the default instruments are (the loonix meme made real) in LMMS. And what level of complexity you need to introduce to make them a little less ear raping however still AIDS.

However I'm to stubborn and obsessed over making strange sounds to stop.

Any tutorial on how to actually use LMMS ?

if that was supposed to be a joke about my completely serious post it was poorly worded

I want to quote a bit I read on an /x/ divination guide but I didn't see it immediately- "signs" or tarot etc are merely tools to interpret a situation.

Ok I thought you were serious, which looking back was pretty stupid, but in my defense, my family unironically believes in this stuff to the point where it has had severe repercussions lol, so my cutoff for "it has to be a joke" is way higher than it should be.
I'm sorry and I want to apologize.

>my feelings about writing/producing rock songs being a waste of time has been recurring
Was 30% of oyur dream to make rock music full time?
You can still make it right now and incorporate the influences in whatever non-rock music you end up doing, or vice versa. IDK, I don't have anything useful to say, I just want to make up for the blunder above.

>>
>>86935454
lol it makes sense now that you've explained yourself, it's all good m808

My only "goal" is just to make the music I want and not have to do anything else.
30% is probably overshooting it by a lot but a good chunk of the music I think about making is rock- I just can't justify the cost to benefit ratio with how much time it takes compared to working on other genres, especially since I regard it as more of a "side" goal rather than a serious pursuit.
The only reason the thought lingers is just because it's what I grew up on and learned music through initially

/blog pls don't indulge this
>>
>>86935614
If that's what gives you joy, you could probably figure out a way to make it work, even if with some sort of compromise.
I wouldn't expect it to be easy, but if you're an aspiring musician you're probably not to averse to a high-risk-high-reward strategy.

In the export audio window, there's a box that says "Resampling." By default, it's set to a conservatively low 32-point sinc.
The higher you set this value, the more accurately your waveforms will be rendered.
I export at 128-point sinc, and it sounds fine to me.

>midi fighter twister
>paying 240 dollars for 16 knobs
i think i have decided that i am just going to make one myself. even if i look at some cheaper options, it still costs almost as much as my keystep.

i bought a used, janky mixer on ebay for more money that i am willing to admit, that i am planning to convert into a midi controller; hopefully keep the potentiometers and replace the inputs and outputs with buttons and switches

Do you separate your writing and mixing stages? I've always mixed on the go and I'm starting to feel it's exactly what has been holding me back all this time
>>
>>86948700
Big eq changes and basic compression/leveling quickly while writing and that’s it
If I’m literally in the middle of writing and it’s flowing I don’t stop

It comes along progressively but actual serious mixing happens at the end
>>
>>86948274
this is a feature that i imagine would make my worflow faster if i spent the little time it takes to learn to use it but it's automation of the process scares me. like i just tried it and why does it create a new track?

i'll stick with creating a new clip, setting the length, turning the metronome and overdub record on, hit play on the clip, then recording my playing, then quantizing. thats probably the slowest workflow though.

Best integration with live. Can visualize all the devices and have instant knob mapping without any config. Polyphonic aftertouch pads. Keys/scales playing. Macros. Can config random chance shit right from push. Can sequence notes on top pads and play on bottom pads. The fact that the pads can be split is amazing. Can change midi note position, length, velocity right on push 2. Visualize shit like spectrum right on the built in screen as you adjust stuff for instant feedback. Sample slicing. Can assign midi in and outs right on the device. Colored pads that actually mean something rather than looking flashy. Copy/paste/delete clips. Browse entire library right there though searching on pc might be faster if you know the name.

this thing is shipping soon. does this make percussion pads in its price range like the Roland Octapad obsolete? because i think accepting sticks is really the only unique thing it brings to the table, aside from just being larger than similar products like the roli block or whatever it's called.

ok the sample editing looks nice can it be used to easily beat match a recorded sample? it can be tricky dealing with lag while looping sometimes it would be nice if i could easily select the starting postion of the recently recorded sample with a knob

Yes you can. Watch this video for all the ways you can slice beats automatically and with using "nudge" to change start/end points. Keep in mind this video was from 5 yrs ago and you can do even more now :)

alright /dmp/, I've been working on this for awhile now and could use some feedback. What's it missing and what does it need?

>>86950552
I think the drums need to be louder, they're really quiet in the mix. So it just sounds like the synth is bouncing around with volume automation instead of being sidechained to the kick. Overall, it sounds like you have some interesting ideas to kick some songs off of. Like at 1:10, that whole jam just needs to be mixed better / flushed out and I could easily see it as some indie dev game music

>>86944674
If you can figure out how to not have your drums clip so hard, it'd be pretty cool. The kick clipping is just a bit too harsh on my ears, but everything else seems pretty dope. To me, it feels like a vague reminiscence of squarepusher

>>86918285
>1st song
not much to say other than to finish it, low key really like this anon
>2nd song
A few thoughts, the drums are too muffled, like i know the style you're going for but that filter on the snare is too much. Lower the resonance a bit and maybe open it up a hair. The synth in the beginning is barely audible, I'd raise the gain a bit to bring it out more in the mix. The pads and bass at 0:27 are killer, its a wonderful soundscape you created - really feels like bougie lounge house music

>>86909078
your synths are way too loud in the mix, the drums need to be more front and center, especially if you're going for hype kicks. I can tell it has the makings to be a bbc banger tho

>>
>>86954160
The GUI is unresponsive and unintuitive, the workflow too closely resembles Fruity Loops (and Fruity Loops has an objective unproductive workflow, the whole "everything is a midi loop and you need to make a new similar midi loop for an instrument to throw variations into your tracks" workflow) except it lacks the cool parts of the Fruity Loops workflow like the channel rack. Not to mention it generally lacks a lot of features.
>>
>>86953242
>https://vocaroo.com/1ay5qDZH0eRj
composition aside, the first thing that jumped out was how overly bright and forward you left everything- the lacks any sense of depth because of it

for stuff like those little noise effects and sustained strings for example: if you shelved out the highs heavily, lowered the volume, and added a dash of reverb or echo you'd instantly have a sense of space in this track; the song is okay but if you applied that concept everywhere I think you'd have something a lot nicer

so I slice|slice|slice with simpler a lot- i've got a workflow that works around using it like that and it's great and all but obviously the lack of being able to scrub and stretch outside of those slices once printed is a huge drawback

my dream feature in ableton is something that functions exactly the same but then has an "apply to clip" function that would arrange the original audio into a new track with all automation and pitch information etc- huge bonus if it could be applied to audio that isn't the original or even the same length as well

i've used da vinci resolve lightly and there's like light and marker information that you can apply to other clips and t b h it's upsetting to see so many interesting concepts in video editing not being applied to audio :'(

Correct, and you will never find a good FOSS DAW. It's too niche of a field with too much work required. No big companies are going to bankroll it, but it's also not something you can just make (well) in your spare time on top of a regular job.
>>
>>86963055
>>86963492
Sunvox is pretty good, but is a little bit weird and lacks VST support... and I'm not entirely sure that it's open source, it might only have source released for old versions.
Renoise is the more practical alternative to it.

LMMS is the open source DAW that I've heard mentioned a few times here.
Audacity is also... an open source application.

"sit outside and fuck around making music" is not that specific, but to narrow it down by preferring internal batteries (heavy emphasis), handheld operation, screens that won't suck in bright light, and speakers,
1. the op-z (teenage engineering, honestly very good except for being made out of soft garbage components)
2. the Novation Circuit Rhythm (no speaker, no handheld operation)
3. the Dirtywave M8 (tracker worfklow, preorder now and you'll still not get one until some time in September)
4. the Synthstrom Deluge (you're taking this thing outside?! ... well if it gets fucked up at least you can always ship it to New Zealand for maintenance, for a few hundred dollars)

If the emphasis should be more on "retard" and should mean "I don't want to spend a lot of money because it will be wasted on me", forget the groovebox and get a handheld instrument like a harmonica, a kalimba, a Yamaha Venova, an Otamatone, a Cajon Box Drum.
If the emphasis should be more on "retard" and should mean "I know literally nothing about music but still want to fuck around with a groovebox outside", get the Circuit Rhythm.

The Behringer Model D is cheaper and will have a more authentic Moog sound, as well as a bigger interface (the SE-02 is tiny). However the SE-02 is the second next best thing in the “budget” category if you want Moog, and it has patch memory.

I’d go for the Behringer desu.

hmm you're right, i might be emulating that workflow without even knowing it. it may be time to download one and see if i like it.
>>
>>86972109
If you don't want to completely abandon Ableton. The Renoise team has Redux as a tracker plug-in. Though depending, Renoise itself might just be the better deal.
>>
>>86972080
Not having patch memory (like the Model D) can be a significant drawback if you’re coming from the plugin world, so the SE-02 would be the better choice if you like to browse presets or create sounds you’ll use later. But the Model D has the better sound for sure.
>>
>>86972125
im glad i posted now because Redux from Renoise looks really attractive for sample based work and honestly, i didnt want to abandon Ableton completely, as you've suggested. it might even be able to do midi too, im not sure yet.
