Pro Tools or FL Studio if I'm lazy. I'm using all Waves stuff. I'm just starting to get a good handle on the C4 and the Linear Phase Multiband.

3osc is a legit synth that shit got me on hypem.

I got a couple of questions.

I'm having trouble trying to make my kicks and snares make the speakers pound.

I know i should use compression, but how much?

And can you guy's recommend me some sample packs or cd's with good drum kits


this might help you with your compression question

cool, i read the part about mixing...

but my question is more about whether they mix the track really loud, or if they pull the levels back during mixing and wait for mastering to take care of the loudness?

Where do you draw the line?

I prefer to leave about 6dB of headroom and then let a Waves L2 or similar mastering compressor make up the gain. It sounds much nicer that way, and it applies even more so if you're sending it away for mastering because they're going to have much nicer hardware compressors than what you would use. Also, most mastering houses require a certain amount of headroom in the mix when you send it. Having it compressed and loud when you send it to them is trying to do their job for them but not doing it nearly as well.
Think of it like wrapping a present. They know how to pack everything into a nice little box and wrap it up tight. If you try to compress it first it's like squishing everything into a shoebox and then having someone professionally wrap it. There's not much else they can do because you've already tried to fit everything together nice and tight, but probably damaged it in the process.

hey again, i was wondering how to make those kind of siren sounds like in the beginning of atlantis to interzone. does it have something to do with modulation on the pitch? that gives me more of a hoover sound

Those sounds are both from a cheapy yamaha keyboard, the one with the dj patch. We use them in my theory class. Made me shit my pants when I heard the siren and the vocal byte haha.

im taking an extensive course in ableton, and i muck around in it pretty much everytime i get.

what i do, in order to study, is write notes about what im doing, ive already started DJing in it.

so im currently writing a buttload of tutorials on how to DJ in ableton and how to make it flexible for people with different midi controllers, or even without one.

current on my 9th page of the tutorial, i am very very perfectionist when it comes to tutorials so i will hopefully have them out in about a month.

I'll keep you guys posted.

its weird, ive enjoyed using it for mixtapes lately because i can break everything down and mix it exactly perfect, but it almost feels like im cheating. before i got ableton i used to do mixtapes exclusively on serato and then record it with audacity, and while they might not have been as technical as my ableton mixes, they felt more genuine sortof. i dont know if that makes sense to anyone else haha.
but sweet on writing tutorials! ive been itching to figure out a creative way to use it live

ok i know that this is a noob question...

i am djing with ableton and need to hook up my laptop to a club's soundsystem. what is the best way?
should i go straight from my laptop's headphone jack via RCA adapter? (will this sacrifice sound quality?)
or should i purchase an audio interface?
or a sound card with external outputs? (i don't really feel like tearing up my brand new laptop...)

when i saw felix perform with mstrkrft it looked like he just took a line out to rca adapter and plugged it in to the mixer. so it should be fine.

An audio interface is just a soundcard on the outside of your computer. As long as the soundcard built into your laptop isn't a total piece of shit you should be alright.
