Man, I'm sure this has been covered but this is a big ass forum to search through so several questions: Are the any of bass lines in mstrkrft real bass or are they all synth?

Also while I'm at it: what is the legality of sampling and also remixing songs?


are you referring to the bass lines in a lot of their earlier remixes, because that's all real bass afaik. jesse used to play bass in a little band called Death From Above 1979 and i think that influence factored a lot into their early remixes for the most part it seems they've done away with using a real bass though.

Can you guys explain kindof how you build your sample libraries? I have downloaded some sample packs, but I feel kindof lame just building from popular sample libraries (maybe I shouldn't).

Also when JFK says people sample a 707 or 909, does that mean people are digitally recording the analog sounds off it and then using them in their productions?

Is that a popular way to make samples, and how often do people use live instruments to make their samples?

Sorry if these are complete n00b questions.

I'm not really big on samples cause I like everything to be all my own sounds whenever possible, but I do use the popular drum machines as starting points for my drums. Then I process them to get them sounding how I want. Everything else, I just synthesize myself.
If your just starting out, using the popular samples is probably a good idea too, because you know they're going to do the trick. Once you develop an ear for what would make a good sample, then you can start using different sounds. You're not giving up creative control, just starting with something you know is going to sound decent.

Your opinion is wrong

I know Darude is trance and DDR is all happy hardcore, but I said that's all that comes to mind when I hear techno these days. Not saying there isn't good techno, I'm just saying anything I've heard is weak.
If you guys have some sweet links, hook up.

Darude is straight up trance, the definition of trance. Alot of people would consider trance and techno as different as indie rock and metal are. And the "gay shit from DDR" (eloquent choice of words, by the way) is mostly considered Happy Hardcore or Happy House, which is not techno either. None of those are what's even close to being considered "techno" nowadays.

Techno is so huge right now, there are tons of people who think techno is going to straight up overtake electro in the next few years. We'll see what happens.


Electro and house will always be king.

I'm not too sure about electro. Bangers are already getting tiring...

But I'm fairly confident house has some heavy staying power.

As far as I've known "electro" is a truncated version of "electro-house". Therefore electro is a sub-genre of house.

Unless I've missed something here.
