  • I've gotta say, that after hearing everyone's tracks on here, you lot are ultra talented. Being a complete noob at music production after a huge break from it, and trying to learn Ableton, it's taken me about a week just to get a snare sound that I think sounds half decent ! If I ever get to create a finished track it'll probably still end up sounding wack - but all this advice is top notch. Still not sure I'll ever, ever be able to get the level of clarity and un-mudiness in a mixdown that you …

    I agree. It wouldn't matter if it was called 'Electro House' - but defining house music with unsyncopated beats as simply 'Electro' is wrong....not morally, but technically speaking. The same happened with 'Garage' music. Originally it was old skool soulful house - 'Let No Man Put Asunder' being a prime example of the genre. Then what happened ? All of a sudden, Garage was the description for wack unmelodious crap that kids got wasted to in Ayia Napa !

    There's 2 F.R David songs in there lol. It starts off with a snippit of 'I Need You' then plays most of 'Words Don't Come Easy' and then finishes with a bit of 'I Need You' again ! How bizarre - I never knew that until now, so had to slow it down to find out. That's some serious crosstalk going on .

    Quote from diplomat;30354: “a the end of that clip it looks like one of the dudes is giving his mate a neck massage!” pmsl I thought he was cleaning his ear out for him ! Sounds like he has got portamento on, pitch bending and modulation. Wicked bass sounds over old skool drum sounds. Great little vid that.

    That looks like a laugh. It may not get used much, but it might be a break from the old DS/PSP on flights !

    Quote from darrell;29324: “Na crack did, shes never been the same again” So true - especially after her display on the X-factor recently. Off her face on something. I remember years back the most popular acapella vocals at the time for laying over various instrumentals was Degrees of Motion 'Do you Want it right now'. Some of those turned out pretty swift.

  • Quote from elektroakust.;29303: “ @The Force... have you checked the first two? keys and melodies fit quite good there i think, thats why i like them.” The Kraftwerk/ Timbaland one sits ok, but the first one just kills the original Whitney tune. It's supposed to be an uplifting experience, yet against the monotonous drone of that one sample at the same pitch it has turned 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' into something dreary, depressing, dark, and so far removed from what the lyrics are trying to …

  • Not a fan of any of these personally. Even if there isn't any nasty key clashes, the melodies don't sit right with each other, and some of them don't even sound that well synced. So a mashup is taking 2 perfectly great tunes, and combining them to create a dull and lifeless recording that doesn't sound natural ?

    Yea swift ! Very Loose Ends/S.O.S style. Right up my street.

  • Maybe they considered the M1 as more of a workstation than a standalone synth ? Classic bit of kit nonetheless ! They were bang on sticking the DX7 in there though, but I agree a Juno should be in there.

  • That is unreal !! Anyone got a link to the VST version of that ?

    This sounds like another killer album ! All top tracks, and really liking the offering from The Artificial Arm. Great stuff !

  • Nice list - cheers for the link lj. Great to see the JD-800 in there. One of the best synths I owned years back.

  • Nice one Diplomat ! Good to see Hanson & Davis in there - 'Hungry for your love' never left my TT when it came out .

  • All of these tracks are friggin' A ! It's like a nonstop fix of electro beats. How talented are you lot ?!

    Hi lj. First of all that tune is spot on - Nice one ! Have you considered delving into Ableton at all ? I'm only scratching the surface at the moment, but maybe you should check out these vids on Ableton 8's Vocoder. I find it extremely flexible and easy to use: [YT]pNTckWOvpfo[/YT] [YT]Mniov6IrCKY[/YT]
