yo, anybody have any insight on how to get a dirty sounding bass like in the early mstrkrft remixes? (i.e. bloc party, panthers, juliette & the licks) i can get some good sounds, but not exactly what i want.

does anyone know if they used a real bass for those remixes? i thought jfk said they hadn't used an actual bass, but he is holding one in their studio in their myspace pick, so i figure they may have.

I've been djing for almost a year now but just started to scratch the top of what is producing or "making electronic music." I got music theory down and play a plethora of instruments (jack of all, master of none) but just have one question:
1) How the fuck do I work Ableton live 7?

Seriously, I read half-way through this thread (took 2 hours) and I still have no clue - obviously aside from the first page this is not a place for noobs.

Just send me a link or something to the right place for a tutorial, doesn't have to be Ableton either - that's just what I have. Thanks to the interweb I can get any program worth getting.


Thanks in advance. In several years or practicing several hours a day I'll be like "*potentially insert your name here* helped me reach the top, now he is my right hand man, djing my tracks while I'm making out with chicks backstage."

Sorry for rambling...just got back from drinking - just post some links to some basics - thanks.

Ableton Live has built in tutorials and they're excellent. Click help and do EVERY ONE of them.

And then after that YouTube should be able to answer every question ever. In fact, every person in this thread should be YouTubeing their questions before even coming here.

well learning how to "make electronic music" takes a lot of different skills... you have to learn audio terminology, DAW(s), synthesizer programming etc etc... so it's a task that you can't knock out with one place... but...

i agree the tutorials are great, and you tube is definitely key but if you want to know about ableton.... the ableton manual is the way to go... it covers absolutely everything (duh) and even though it's time consuming/ kinda boring to read (not really if you're like me and you love techie shit) it'll pay off in the long run. i just started reading one day and read a couple pages a day... before i knew it i was done

also here are some good referenes...

http://www.abletonlivedj.com/

for everything audio knowledge/ good mp3 compression:

http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/
http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=LAME

and to get started watch the videos on the ableton site... they'll give you basic tours so you can learn the lay out etc...

Right Chaps i need this certain sound that can be heard here: http://hypem.com/search/napt/1/

3rd song down.

the sound can be first heard at 1min 32. Its chord stabs and the get more frequent within the next 10 seconds untill 1,42 where its pretty much the main synth. doing the chord stab.

I am trying to get a similar sound to that for my latest song (its exactly what it needs) and i was just wondering if you guys had and tips or idea/suggestions on how i can achieve that sound. Im pretty good with synths like massive, albino, i haven't tryed it yet as i wont be home for awhile but im interested to know what Waves you think should set the Oscillators to ect


thanks for any help!

Hey guys I've got a noob' question...so go easy on me! I am kinda confused, say I am at a club, lets say MSTRKRFT is playing. What is the purpose of the macbook?

I know they probably use Traktor Pro, Live, or some other program of that nature, but is it their computer that they carry their songs/loops around and use the cdj's like a midi control? or do they make cd/mp3 and play them in each cdj deck? and use the computer program to keep track of time and cue points etc? or maybe I am completely way off...haha


again excuse my ignorance. Thanks!

There's all your answers. Basically they DJ off of audio files from the macbook harddrive using this hardware/software called serato. I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with midi.

Just a quick question, does anyone use synth edit? I've only recently gotten into it, quite fun, builds things that makes some crazy cool sounds.

Almost got it. They're using control CDs for Serato, not Midi.

Dude are you going to keep ripping off other songs? Like I understand wanting to learn new sounds and stuff but no one wants to hear copies of other songs. Try coming up with your own sounds/image/ideas for once.
