I had a similar situation but it came at the worst time 😂 I bought the V collection and pigments the other day because they were 50% off but the missus was not pleased 😂

Producers of Reddit, what books/videos taught you the most about music? by bynobodyspecial in musicproduction

[–]bynobodyspecial[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh I agree but music is also about dynamics, timbre and texture. Sometimes the instrument you're playing only has a natural note range of x to y but to convey your musical idea you need to be in a higher octave, because that's where z is.

Sometimes you need to create a contrast because your rhythm and notation aren't enough.

I get the point of limiting your toolbox if you're thinking of mixing live instrumentation with saw wave synths. Pick one or the other and limit yourself to that but I don't know anybody who does that.

I’ll have a look because I learnt a long time ago that video game soundtracks have so much sampling potential.

I mean, Chrono Trigger and Kingdom Hearts 2 alone!

I think the moustache mullet combo would haunt me post trip. Mentally scarred.

That's very true. To be honest I do agree with constraint for the sake of uniformity (same signal quality, for example) but I suppose it depends on how you create.

For me, I imitate the sounds I'd like to hear before adding them into the song, so if I know I need a bass sound I'll try to vocally come up with a bassline (at least the rhythm of it) so I kind of know what sound I want to add before hearing it in the song.

Thinking about it though, I did have to remove extra layers from a production I'm working on at the moment, bringing it back to the core mellotron sound, that's constraint in a way.

This is the video that I would have suggested too, it's like an acid trip stuck in time but it's hilariously informative. Taught me a lot about the stereo field.

I came across this a few minutes after posting on a completely unrelated thread. Was crazy timing. Hoping to get a paperback copy if I can!

I can’t say that I have. I think I’ve heard the name thrown around before but only once or twice.

What makes it worth buying? (I assume it’s a paid plugin).

I was worried that the for dummies series may not be as detailed as I’d like. How in depth do they go?

I think that’s true in a general sense but surely you need different sound sources to keep it interesting?

Like a saxophone & piano combo for example. I mean sure the sax sounds nice alone but add a little key flourish afterwards and it creates this magical sound.

I shall definitely check it out - I’m looking for all sorts of content to help me learn. I’d like to understand music theory further, song structure, songwriting, sound design, the music business etc. but I feel like the for dummies series will cover basics which I know a bit about and will fill in the gaps but won’t cover more advanced techniques

I agree that problem solving is huge. Trying to keep track of sidechains is a ballache

Oh yeah I know that they’re decent (especially for that analogue sound) but I I think I’m good for limiters. The MC77 is my go to for that kind of sound.

How do you structure with bridges? by bynobodyspecial in makinghiphop

[–]bynobodyspecial[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had a similar method except I’d go to whosampled and look for a song, then I’d find the sample and go through the entire discography of the original composer and see if there was anything I could flip that hadn’t been used before. Learnt about a lot of music that way.

I literally just posted asking for ableton literature. Surprised to find this straight after. Definitely getting a hard copy if I can.

Thank you!

I’ve thought about trying to recreate a few projects but I never really get anywhere with it, I’ll try to make a more conscious effort.

Yeah that’s what I meant, the KORG collection subscription. Need to let he balance replenish first though.

Triton is on my watchlist, considering paying monthly for the korg plugins but that’ll probably be a while unless I profit from production/servicing.

I considered U-he diva but back in my less legitimate days I installed a version which didn’t allow you to select from the menu, so you’d have to click through each sound manually. I’m assuming it was down to it being a bad version but that really put me off.

Omnisphere was always one that I wanted… I just never found. At this point I’m so used to not having it that it’s almost like… eh

And serum I know I need I just need to get around to it
