But why wouldn't you just route all the tracks you want compressed to an aux track with the compressor on it, then use reverb sends on the original tracks to control the reverb? I know the reverb would be coming from the original signal and not the compressed, but it should make almost no audible difference in the quality of your reverb and it would be worth it to save all that time, hassle and extra CPU power.

Cause I'm a crafty motherfucker.
I just wanted to do it to see if it could be done. I know it won't really affect the reverb that much, but with the kick almost sidechaining the percussion, you get a bit of a different feel which translates over to the reverb. It just kind of balances the signal going into the verb a bit and clamps down on the percussion on the beats. It saves me the hassle of trying to adjust a bunch of shit on the reverb or sidechain it (yes I do that sometimes.) I look at effects as another instrument, so they have to fit in with the groove and everything. I was actually adjusting to room size so it's fundamental frequency would be the root of the relative major key of the song, so how stuff fits in harmonically is important too.
This trick would probably be a lot more noticeable with an effect more obvious than reverb. You can use it to cancel pretty much anything out of your signal as long as the two sounds are the same.

So I'm in the market for a nice distortion plugin. A LOLJUSTICEDISTORTION sounding one if you know what I mean. I'm not actually trying to copy Justice but I'm sorta looking for their bass sound, but less distorted. Any decent ones you guys know of? I was thinking of running an amp simulator, but I thought there might be something else to use.

well its a pretty cool gear, you can make a simple 2 hour set on one of those its a pretty impressive machine, thinkin about gettin one? do it
its not as powerful as a DAW like ableton and such but it IS SO much more fun and in the end thats all that matters, its really intuitive and the moment u get it u start making beats, not hard to use, and its really accesible. i still use ableton for some stuff but its never as fun as using these 3 machines

go hardwareee

I rlly agree. Its so easy to write stuff with it, and its a lot of fun, like you sayd.

Some thing else, does anyone have any tips or tricks for mixing synths and drums. I think its a lot of work to find out how to get that good sound, and i just wanted to know if anyone knows some cool shit.

i've read that they sampled amp fuzz for nazareth but any bassy synth or clav through proper distortion will get you close enough

Since the debate on music theory is always ragin' around these parts I thought I'd provide this.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/5220863/Ravenspiral-Guide-to-Music-Theory-06

It's an online manual someone wrote as a guide to learning music theory, with an emphasis on people who want to write electronic music. The guy who wrote it writes house music, I think.

It covers everything you need to know: keys, chords, melodies, arrangement, basic notation and rhythm. It is in my personal opinion that there is no need to go much beyond the realm of what is offered in this guide if you're just wanting to DJ and write dance music. It's more than comprehensive enough.
