Thanks for the suggestions so far! Yea i was not sure how I would describe it, its like a kick is layered with a single step of an army marching.

5  General / The Forum / using buylinks on SC to promote artist pages on facebook on: December 10, 2012, 16:56:12
Dear everyone,

Is there anyone here who can give me a walkthrough, step by step, how to use buylinks in Soundcloud to promote your fanpage ("Like Artist Page to download this track"). I have been searching the net for about an hour now for an updated walkthrough (the old ones obviously dont work anymore since soundcloud has a new face now) but so far I was unable to find one. I get it up to a point where you modify the buy link in soundcloud with an alternative link, but how the heck do you create, or where do you find this "link".

Any effort into trying to explain this to me will be wildly appreciated, and will be awarded with a couple of download links from my artist page obviously

Safe,
Julian

Dear everyone, I have this tune that I want to get released but I am not experienced in how/where to find a willing label. It's drum step : http://soundcloud.com/absolutely-stretch/the-mad-scientist-original-mix
Any hints/tips? Maybe if you have a label, we can work something out?

Peace

Ye you're right, I will probably have them connected to the local network and make shared folders. No need for NAS' and external HDD's at all. THATS BRILLIANT! Thank you for your opinions!
8  General / The Forum / Crossover harddrive instantly accessible from a pc AND a mac on: April 19, 2012, 12:35:42
Hey guys,

I am using logic pro at the moment on a mac, and I am considering to expand my arsenal with a windows pc with FL studio on it.
 Now what would be ideal is that I could leave them on at the same time, and in the meantime instantly swap files from my windows pc to my mac and back...
SO... what I want to get is a hard drive with 2 usb's accessible by windows (NTFS?) and Macintosh (FAT32?). Does anyone here have experience with that? And if so, does anyone recommend a specific hard disk to do this job for me?

nice intro, lead sound is a bit abrasive for my tastes,i like the outro Smiley

Thats exactly the sound i was going for mate, I like it rough. But if by abrasive you mean ear hurting, I'll look into it, because obviously thats not what i want

Producing dub step didn't work out for me, so i've decided to take part in the up and coming drum step scene
It's merely a raw version of what it will eventually be, I sticked this together only yesterday but i think i'm definitly getting somewhere.

Dear Hijackers,

I'm looking for a record label thats willing to sign me for my latest production, but i'm totally inexperienced in the field.
Any tips for getting into contact with record labels? Those people are really hard to find on the internet.

21  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Tune structure on: June 24, 2011, 20:12:25
Maybe this simple answer is somehow embedded in the previous answers + i'm not familiar with dance/house producing at all, but I think you can make your dance music more interesting by doing alot of layering on your synths/basslines/percussions/fx. This would imo make all the sounds stand out in the track (does your track sound boring?). And ofc use alot of automation!!!!! Isnt dance music all about buildups/downs? Try to do a crash / kickroll / etc after every 8/16 counts? Just some crazy ideas, hope it helps.

23  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Someone asked me if he can remix my song, what do I give him? on: May 25, 2011, 14:39:11
Well i'm not really in a position to know if I can trust him or not, he's on the other side of the world (America). So I can't just go there and deliver the punch when he's going wrong with it or anything. Perhaps the most important part that I have to consider is that my track isn't signed jet (none of my tracks are as of jet). So the only hold-on to prove that the original is mine is the date "1 month ago" on my Soundcloud and the Logic pro file.
Which obviously isn't very much.
24  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Someone asked me if he can remix my song, what do I give him? on: May 24, 2011, 23:17:42
Am I supposed to give him all my invidual tracks? or let him download the wav on my sound cloud and say "fuck yea go for it?" which i'm about to do. I dont care about the money he can do it for free, it's a big honor that someone asks me this. Any advice from you experienced folks? Smiley

31  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Looking for studio monitors on: April 06, 2011, 14:07:14
Hey guys, thanks for the replies. A sub sounds like a good idea in addition to some KrK's, I need to work more overtime *sigh*. And guys I WISH I had a 1000 pounds for speakers but I dont, and I wont have it within the next couple of years (I am going to college for 4 years). So Krk 6's (or the yamaha's) and a proper sub then I suppose? And uh... fuck the neighboors Tomato Slayer!
32  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Looking for studio monitors on: April 05, 2011, 15:34:29
I need them to be 300-400 euro (around 300 pounds i guess?).
I need them to be as perfect as can be for that price. My big love for music has always been a dominating subbass (60-200hz) and alot of percussion. That's what I want to make and I need the perfect monitors for that.

EDIT: I have been looking for the KRK's, they looked good at first, but then I heard they werent any good for 50/60hz.
33  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Vocals sucking up the hi-hats on: January 25, 2011, 21:53:06
That is a brilliant idea my friend, i'm going to make work of it right now.

EDIT: not working... as the vocals are an almost constant sort of chant its now the hi-hats sucking up the vocals! gahh back to the EQ-tables. Hands on deck! I'll just start from scratch. Thanks anyway!
34  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Vocals sucking up the hi-hats on: January 25, 2011, 21:10:27
Hey guys whatsup,
I have come across a problem that you guys must have faced before... undoubtably...  I'm mixing stuff down and the vocals appear to be interfering with my hi-hats.
The vocals + the hi-hats are in between 300-5k hz. The hi-hats go all the way to 20k (thats not so weird).
But whenever I play them together they both have a small resonating sound to it... just a little bit too obvious that they are clashing with eachother.
To be notified as a messy sound, rather than cool.
I've tried EQing them out without losing the sound i want them to have, but failed... any alternatives to solve this problem?

Thanks! Greets from holland.
35  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: Musical Keys on: January 09, 2011, 22:07:59
I agree on Gyu for 100%, well actually he is totally right, turning random knobs and see what the result brings is a great way to gain knowledge. On the other hand I have had 3 years of playing a bass guitar before I started learning to produce digital music. And knowing what notes do, what harmonics are all that basic stuff... it certainly is usefull. But if I hadnt been tought bass from a great teacher... I would have gone for the random knobs method Cheesy And books.

Also a tip, dont try to over-analyze what you're trying to make... after all music is all about expression.


EDIT: tip 2, arrange your music playing time like this: 20% theory, 80% practice: trial and error

38  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: My bass "plucks" on: December 21, 2010, 12:34:02
Haha absolutly brilliant you guys are. You're comment helped me the most spit, well more or less. My bass kind of lost its original sound but I got a more dubby bass in return by throwing up the attack and release until the pluck was gone. Once again, thanks alot you guys.
39  Food for your Ears / The Desk / My bass "plucks" on: December 20, 2010, 20:00:26
Hello, Bristol hijackers

I am back with another question. As I am spending every spare hour that I have on learning all the bits 'n pieces about/around producing more and more obstacles arise Cheesy
I have created a low frequency bass, well i guess we call that a subbass, but i'm just saying.
How can I get my subbass to sound like a clean sound? example: Mala - Alicia (what an incredibly beautifull tune). This bass sounds clean! No plucks!
My bass sounds somewhat similar to that one, it's dubby and it's low freq, except this one thing: it constantly makes a "pluck" What does this mean??
I'm one of those guys who finds something else to stampede over that pluck so you dont hear it anymore, but thats obviously not very professional. Can you guys help me out?

EDIT: I actually have another problem with my bass, when I turn the volume too low u will not hear it anymore, and when I turn it too high (slapping on the 0db) it sounds like a big overdrive sound comes out of the bass and resonates through all the other tracks. I guess it's logics way of telling me "NO!". It's probably solved with an EQ or compressor, or should I wait with this until the final mixdown?

40  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: My bass gets sucked up by something. on: December 17, 2010, 15:49:32
Hey guys, after a couple of hours...

I found the problem! It kinda was the kick, apperantly it had a very long release on around 20 Hz (practically cant hear that) .
I think I must have messed that up in the beginning when I was turning random knobs for a good sound.
The bass isnt 20 Hz but apperantly the release was long and loud enough to "suck up" the bass.
Solved it with a Channel EQ on the insert of the kick

Regards, Julian a.k.a. Gilt
41  Food for your Ears / The Desk / Re: My bass gets sucked up by something. on: December 17, 2010, 13:01:35
Thanks for the welcome!

Well the bass kind of repeats itself every 16 bars, and it only occurs at random points,
but I thought I heard a small resonating thingy, so it could be conflicting with a certain frequency of something else.
Looks like some usefull things to try out.
I'll let you guys know when i find a solution
42  Food for your Ears / The Desk / My bass gets sucked up by something. on: December 17, 2010, 12:32:08
Hey guys,

first post!

I have a bit of a problem, my bass gets sucked up at random places, the sound/velocity just seems to go down.
I'm using logic pro 9. I've checked the compressor and the EQ and the synth (ES2: synthesizer 2) itself, but all appears normal, nothing strange!
Also the volume automation hasnt been messed around with. Any of you fellas had this before? This is mindboggling!
