POLYRHYTHMS

It's the reason I got addicted to drums. I just started trying to encorperate them into some shitty synth / beat noises on logic and its phenomenal how much it helps.


...while were getting heavy with the music theory shit

^Not that heavy
Reminds me though, I'm reading this book called The Lydian Chromatic Concept of Organization. It's so interesting.
It based around the Lydian mode and how it's actually more of a consonant and stable mode than Ionian(Major scale)
He goes on to add other tones based on this organization concept of tonal gravity and it's supposed to open up this new way of classifying and thinking about chords and their relative scales.

i was browsing the books a million and sat down in the aisle and started reading a book called "how equal temperament ruined harmony" read about 30 pages here and there, pretty interesting but not enough to drop 20 bucks on it

he challenges that that dividing and octave into 12 parts isnt perfect and there are other better tunings out there and shit like that

Really? That's kinda cool, and funny lol.
I did a project on equal temperament in high school.... actually I might have not done it, but I was supposed to...
As for equal temperament and harmony, I think the whole dividing a string in fractions stuff is fairly basic and important, especially when it comes to harmonics, but it is true the more you divide it, the more dissonant it becomes.
I wonder if he were proposing a completely differently built scale like in middle eastern music or just more finely tuned western harmony.

Music books are fun to read but I always get distracted, especially cause they're mostly all books I've downloaded in Pdf format. I always have internet and music on hand to distract me.

Hi,

I'm new here and have just been devouring all the info that's in here. I'm trying to find out about everything on how to make electronic music and feel like I found a place. You guys know so much and seems like you all are pretty open minded about music and want to keep learning. Cool Shit.

Anyways I like what I'm reading in here.

Peace to everyone,
Daniel

Ok, what should I first do if I want to start to make electronic music? Wide question I know, but should I get Ableton, Reason? I've only tried Ableton and it seems the easiest.

what slinky said and also, it doesn't matter what program you use, a lot of people use a ton of different hardware, software, a combination of both you just need to be able to maneuver around what ever you're using. "it's the carpenter, not the tools" - FC

Hey guys
I know a big issue right now is learning how to get good mixes and part of that is being able to properly assess frequencies by ear. I found this freeware program that plays random frequencies and gets you to guess what they are. I figured it might help in developing an accurate ear.

Here's the link.

I know this thread is called making electronic music, but I was curious about this.

I recently picked this up from my school: http://namm.harmony-central.com/SNAMM01/Content/Boss/PR/BR-532.html

Unfortunately, no one's ever used it, no one knows how to use it, and no one has the cables for it. From what I understand, I need a MIDI-USB cord to hook it up to Ableton. Although it's a little skimpy on the actual controls, I'm only starting with simple stuff until (hopefully) moving onto CD-J's or something similar.

Is that all I need? I don't want to blow $50 on a cord to find out that it's useless. Otherwise, I'm thinking of investing in one of the KORG Nano Series controllers to tide me over until I'm worthy of better gear.

From looking at it, I'm guessing it also acts as an external soundcard (for cueing). Is that correct? I'm still learning, so bear with me. It has a headphone slot on the front, but that would have nothing coming out of it unless it was coming from the device itself, right? The spot on the back is MIDI Out.

Thanks guys.

my dad got me a br-1600 a few years ago and i didnt know really what to do with it, and now that im into music i asked the forum and they said basically to sell it and buy something else

i would assume they would say the same about the 532?
