Sup. Got a Mac recently and decided to get Ableton. Watched a couple of bits of EDM Tips videos on youtube and started dicking around.

Why would they take a several-months-long hiatus and dump everything at once, forcing us to pay for a premium uploaded/rapidgator/katfiles account?
The only explanation is that those file-hosts paid them to do so because if they had continued to post a few a day, the pirates would've had the time to download everything without a premium account, but now that you have to get a metric fuckton of stuff within a couple days you're pretty much forced to pay.
Think about it.

mouse drawing is only acceptable for melody, not ok for chord input

it's not the quantize problem
for example in studio one i can active step recording, finger scrambling on keyboard until i find a chord sounding good, then release all at once and it's done, it's stress free and gets to what i want fast
in live i can do the same except i type arrow key on computer keyboard to do step record

>>
>>105943162
>>105943205
as much as this is a troll post it does kinda answer your question.

copy black musicians. listen to some gap band and 70s funk bands to get a sense for how they feel a beat. loosen up and pick up the bass maybe. syncopation also works well if the underlying beat is clear and solid.

if you want a literal quick fix to more groove, open a perc plugin and transcribe a groovy drum beat on the piano roll. go by drum type. first get the kick down, the snare, hat, toms, etc. once the timing is on, adjust velocities to that of the song. use some saturation and tone effects to get it to sound more natural and authentic. be minimal and careful with reverb. have fun.

What's the appeal of virtual drum machines as plugins when you can just have samples dragged into your DAW's pattern maker?
>>
>>105946350
You can say you're using some sort of drum machine and feel hip with your homosexual Berlin friends.
>>
>>105946350
Same reason as other virtual instruments over samples, fluid modulation and accurate synthesis over multiple pitches. Perhaps not super-relevant if you don't do anything aside from simple triggering of static drum sounds. If you do anything where you want to modulate the drums, synthesis may produce superior results.
>>
>>105946350
because it looks so cool to use a pattern sequencer inside another pattern sequencer

any tips to recording a MIDI piano?

>>
>>105950067
Absolutely, if you want to make shit that doesn't sound dull. Maybe not in a style like dubstep, trap, or riddim, where the melodies are performed by hockets, but for more melodic EDM styles like future bass, there's usually some rudimentary element of counterpoint in play because the future bass guys were usually band nerds who got some degree of formal music education as kids. I don't really ever bother with it because it's all so tiresome, but I do think harmony and voice leading are more important than ever since we've had a few solid decades of chords that are all the same. So now harmony is putting you in a position to make something that is unique and relevant, because advanced harmony is now relegated to timbres that aren't popular, like jazz. But the 80s showed us that normies are very capable of enjoying dense harmonies and complex harmonic changes, as long as it's performed by relevant generational timbres.

well, the point was to memorize the like rules of not using paralel fifths and octaves and instead using oblique and contrary motion when you go from imperfect to perfect and from perfect to perfect consonant.

That's like 99% of the book.
The other thing is that you should use consonant intervals on the downbeat and you can use disonance on the syncopated beats.

That's like all I remember.

here are some of their features

Tone is all in the pre-amp, or pedals. Power amps generally don't have a pre-amp, or EQ.

"Power" is a vague term. Do you mean saturation, break up, or just volume?

Every guitar head has a pre-amp for tone, and a power amp for amplifying the sound. Is this what you misunderstand?

If you're talking about the flexibility of an effects unit like a AxeFX, then yes, it's more flexible. But it's not a power amp.

Power amp: amplifies the sound, generally has no FX/EQ

Pre-amp: EQ, and often FX loop.

FX unit: tone and other effects like delay

Find out who you want to emulate, and then find out what they use, and what recording. A lot of guitar tones can be recreated with an AxeFX or amp sims on a computer. A lot of modern heads can also shape tone with onboard fx and such.

Wasn't that long ago, either, "And Justice For All"s drum tracks were spliced because Lars couldn't get them right live. I remember Lonn Friend talking about the sessions for that album in RIP magazine, and how it was taking forever because of the editing they were doing, by hand.

Ableton is good for beginners who aren't hoodnigger "producas" because there's an incredibly vast free education that exists for it and it's easy as fuck. I still use it to compose all my MIDI, but everything else I now do in Cubase which is far deeper. Tasks that would be extraordinarily tedious in Ableton are simple and quick in Cubase, but it's incredibly dense and definitely would be impossible to use for a beginner.
>>

You must be the only one in the world using Ableton for MIDI and another DAW for the rest.

I have never owned any musical peripheral device aside from a mixer and guitar equipment. I had fun using a drum pad with preset samples on an tablet app.

Is there any sense in buying a dedicated drum controller or should I find an app that lets me load samples/work with FL studio easily?
My main priority is being able to improvise many drum tracks quickly rather than building them up on a DAW

pad controllers like mpd or machine are what you're looking for I guess

Have worked out a short term solution, I need to use ASIO4ALL and send my output to my tower and use the headphones socket on that, if I send output to USB interface I get the bleed - with it being worse when using headphones.

wtf is a transient?
>>
>>105943229
nice track, I like the combination of the drums and synth, but I feel it'd tie the track more together if they were more in sync, and the "why am I doing this" soundclip felt a bit out of place, but the rest was fine.
The ending did remind me of the opening to Cygnus x-1 book one
>>
>>105966568
It's when you take a male voice and pitch it up a few semitones.
>>
>>105966568
It's the part of the start of the sound that starts off super loud and instantly fades away while everything else stays roughly the same volume, newfren. It's found in drums, pianos, acoustic guitars, and some consonant sounds (this is what pop filters are for, keeping a ridiculously loud transient out of your recording)
>>
>>105960928
you're fucking retarded just have it automated to 0 at 0:00 so it actually retunes
>>
>>105966592
Kek
>>
>>105966630
I know, but that's extra tedium. What if you have layers? You gonna go write in 10 redundant automations? Just automate in the arrangement view automation lanes instead of in midi clips
>>

Thank you i'll try that out but
>pop
Getting real specific huh
>>
>>105966616
Aren't transients just the initial portion of the sound where it goes from -inf to whatever?
Like, if I have a simple synth patch with a 20ms attack and 100% sustain, doesn't that also count as a (soft) transient?

But what if my chord voicings are different across layers? Look nigger, I know the trick. I've been doing it for years now. But the point is that you should not have to do this when Ableton is making all kinds of changes, most of which are for the worst. They should find a way to remove this over decade old bug.

Thank you. It might be muddy because I'm using Fasttracker 2 and trying to keep a manageable file size but the samples might just be too muddy. I could see about sharpening them abit. Also yes I should be micro-editing more but I want to get a body done first before I start to edit. Your track is sick as well.

I've been using FL since it was actually called Fruity Loops. Not much has changed in workflow. It's slightly better, but also people who put it down do that because they are retarded who didn't research how to set it up correctly to match their needs. Yes even the big names say stupid shit often. FL can be set up in many different ways. You can make music in many different ways. Same with mixing and recording. People talking shit about FL, 9 times out of 10 are talking out their ass or didn't bother doing the homework in setting it up nicely. It's true that sometimes it looks like you have to jump through few more hoops to do something, but there are always hotkeys for that.

However there are things that could be added for example. I would like the arpegiattor to be integrated in the pattern sequencer in a button. Little things like that.
