all compostition is merely a matter of personal judgement, there are certain rules about harmony and structure, but ethics can only be judged subjectively

so judge for yourself, does the sound fit in the track, does it make it complete, or does it destroy the vibe you had going on
does it enhance or does it destruct ... is the only question at hand

firestarter break 05-05-2008 15:14 Forum: Production questions & answers

if anyone remembers INFERNO (the Dylan tune)
they will surely remember the very nicely sampled firestarter break (prodigy)

anyone has any idea where it came from ? or if they programmed it from scratch
and has anyone got a clean good sample of it ?
or how to go around creating it
don't spend your time explaining how a break is made, i'm quite aware,
but i don't find any history on this particular one

so if anyone knows .... please share Smile

the first question is what Eq'ing actually is and does.

first of all you can eq for two different purposes:
1. mixing issues, sound puzzling, creating the right position for a track, mostly not too extreme, boosting frequencies a little with nice bell q-factors and cutting hi or low ends ...
2. filtering, sound shaping, mostly slightly more extreme since this isn't really mixing, it's actually composing the sound and what it's gonna represent in your track

basically what you're trying to do by eq'ing a track is that you're cutting out all the frequencies you're not gonna be needing for that particular track and boosting those you particularly want vividly present in that track
like f.e. a drumtrack may have some heavy low end around 40-50 up to 100-150 hz, which sounds cool when you solo the track but which rhumbles with the bass sounds in the mix, so you want to cut those out
strangely enough by cutting these frequencies the drum gets an overall punchier low end, while actually you're taking them out. this is because the lower harmonics from the bassdrum/toms/whatever are now cut and aren't fighting anymore with other more important elements in that range
this is a typical example of eq'ing for mixing purposes

if you have some white noise for example, which is used a lot nowadays to fill up the space behind the drums, you're gonna want to cut the mid frequencies for example, but depending on which frequencies you cut at which qfactor and which gain settings are greatly gonna alter and influence the characteristics of the sound.
you can create a 200hz peak with some white noise filtered down and boosted round the 200hz area, or you can create filtered, shaker-like patterns if you cut the lows and the mids from the noise and lift the attack a wee bit.
this is a typical example of eq'ing for soundshaping/designing purposes

which eq you use in reason and on what track is entirely up to you
some tracks just need a little simple bass cut or hi cut, so i suggest taking a two band eq for that,
if you wanna eq for mixing issues with a bit more advanced 3 band /hi & lo shelf eq, take the Mclass EQ
if on the other hand you wanna use the eq to really filter your sound, try the eq from the vocoder, very colourful and powerful eq

wiretap studio !

(google it)

well you could go around converting your dvd to a videofile (avi.mpeg...etc) and then extract audio from video file, from the file menu
but really, progs like wiretap are the way to go, just cut to the part you wanna sample, let it play and record internal audio with wiretap
takes 10 seconds and your audio file is ready to use and sample

and specially on that:

25 keys allow you to create melodies or chords spread over two octaves, which is fine at first, but you will notice that from time to time you're gonna want that extra octave in the bass or in the treble section, just because of some notes you wanna play there, or a chord voicing you might wanna spread out more

nothing to do with playing 2 hands or 1 and, you could create a melody over 7 octaves and still play it with one hand, just . how far do you wanna go

knobs are for recording automations instead of drawing them, or live controlling of parameters ..., faders same thing, although they come in handy to automate your mixer tracks, or group tracks

ontopic: what's it with all those questions about midi keyboards, ... every midi keyboard out there does the same thing: it sends midi,
one has knobs one has faders, other one has 25 keys other one has 49 or 61 keys, heck some even have the full 88 keys

pick whichever you want, whichever one feels most comfortable to you,

one more thing -> m-audio has the most stable drivers, so an axiom49 is IMO the best choice out there, it has knobs, pads and faders, and it has 49 keys, which relieves you from the two octave limit from 25 keys without taking up all your desk space

in reason you can use NNXT to sample your stuff, just add zones and samples and map them across the keyboard.

if you want something really powerful go out and buy Kontakt 3, it's simply amazing, but be prepared to spend 400 euro ...

use it to automate filters, that way you can do some nasty stuff with it, without the hassle of drawing automation lines all over the place.

you can connect the output cv and gate cv to a number of modulation inputs on any synth/sampler in reason

toy around, you'll find some real intresting stuff

some apps like wiretap allow you to record internal audio with the click of a button and basically edit fade ins and outs and start/end points directly, and send them directly to a wave file.

check it out !

do what you want, music is as every other art a free way of expression, if you choose to create dnb however, there's 2 rules: tempo! = between 170 - 185 (which is very fast imo) and 8-bar structures ...

read the big post above, and you'll see surgically explained what that structure is all about Big Grin

ow btw wTrouble; planet dust is creepy, it comes each time in 3 blocks of 8 bars and then changes, then 3 blocks again, and then changes again

not many tunes have this build up, one f.e. is fresh & fierce - innocence

in reason, go to preferences, in prefs, go to control surfaces, and add your keyb. to the list, if you don't find the exact driver or controller, pick a similar one or a generic remote, that way, reason will know there is a controller keyboard somewhere

don't know if you're going through usb, or the midi port of your soundcard. when using outboard midi, be sure to enable midi IN in reason ...

dunno bout FL tho

kontakt ftw !!!

still, to make your own breaks i suggest just assembling audio files in audio tracks, use the grid to program rhytmically, that way you have full control and freedom over what happens to each individual sound, not that in any sampler you can't do that, that's why they're samplers off course, but you're still limited to the fx of the plugin, instead when using audio tracks you can add pretty much every effect or plugin in the book
