Dude, I meant to ask, is there any kind of good way of organizing samples or midi in your actual folders? Everything I saved that sounds okay and I intend to use for later is all scattered and I really don't have any organizational names. I gotta start getting into a good habit of doing this but I need to try out a system where I could do it efficiently.


uh, just make a make a file called samples and drop them in there, name the sample with the name of the song artist and part of the sample like "winstons : amen brother break"

Ha, the infamous Amen Break... I was actually thinking about using it but no joke I heard 2 songs yesterday with that sample all sliced up to hell.

Yeah, I know that way of naming .wav samples from other artist. But when it comes to MIDI's and my own samples, I start naming them 1 or "jzhkj". Random text. I think perhaps I'll just make folders but I figured people name it somthing fance like "Song Title_Synth Name_Measure". I'm sure it's to each his own but I can't think of a better one.

thats what im confused about because any video ive seen of them they dont have a computer on stage but maybe i just cant make it out behind the amps and cross. if i rephrased it and asked how would you go about doing original material on turntables live would that make sense? im sorry if this is all stupid babble.

you can see the computers, the actual surface that theyre resting their computers on is a bit lower than the lip of their setup

and using turntables, i dunno, probably turntables, a sampler and a drum machine

use vst plugins, and step up, if youre gonna pirate shit, pirate the best shit, get ableton 7

anyway, back on topic, im a big user of vst plugins vs built in instruments just because it gives it a more unique flavor, what you should do is download reason and play it via rewire through ableton

taylor i think you should make intense tutorials then if your not going to make music. i think it would be helpful if you made like sound clips of what you mean and shit. dunno just tossing the idea out there.

hmm which DAW do you know most about? Personally, a couple things i want to learn or learn more about include things like side chaining, different kinds of compression, and overall better blending, and mastering. There are always simple essentials people are missing. I know there is a hell of alot of stuff to read out there but people get tired of that shit, i do anyways i want some examples and shit, some visual aids. i hope im not alone on this.

hey guys, i got a quick question. i upgraded from fl to ableton and im just starting to learn how to se it. i got the ableton live pack and it wont allow me to drop anything into the "audio" cells. why is this? i cant drop any audio samples, midi files, etc.

i feel so dumb with ableton because im usually pretty good at figuring softwares out by myself. it just seems so much harder to use than someting like fl, but im determined to figure it out.

ive also tried looking into tutorials online but i had a hard time finding tutorials for bare bones basics. a point in the right direction would be really appreciated.
