This method also works great for trying extract stems and samples.

"great"

Good luck not getting something that sounds like muddy shit pumped through a 1980's tape deck with the tone down to 0.

Napolian, the method in that youtube vid basically only works for instrumentals and a capellas of identical quality. This might be of interest to you though: http://photosounder.com/blog/2009/03/instrument-isolation-funky-worm.html

this is more of a computer related question, but it has to do with my sound card (and hence is fucking up the sound output when im trying to do shit in ableton). im gonna give it a shot here. i've got a hp dv9000 (i fucking hate this thing, its a peice of shit...can't wait to get a mac for my 20th bday in july) and i hear this very slight "clipping" sound, shit's a little distorted at times. it's really not thaaaaat noticeable, but it can really piss me off. i've already sent it into hp, but they didnt do shit cause they're fucktards don't know what a motherboard is.

so, i've tried uninstalling the sound driver and then reinstalling but this hasn't done anything.

also, im thinking about getting new speakers. are there any standard decent speakers out there that could also serve as studio monitors (or vice versa)? basically i want some badass speakers to bust some dubstep really loud and for producing

Thanks for the reply Robotech

MacroKONTROL is not on the list- There is MicroKONTROL but I'm pretty sure thats for the microkorg keyboard. I tried it and didn't work.


This has happened in the past with other controllers and they've always worked out eventually.

I hate to come on this board with petty computer problems.

I tried it again and my computer said it's installed and ready to use. So that's one step haha.

I just can't get it to talk to ableton. It's not lighting up in the corner and no sign of it in pref.

I'm so anxious to start mapping-I hate this.

Anyway, if you have any more tips for me that would be great.

just select what midi port your using, and dont select the preset for it. i dont even select it with mine and it has mappings for my oxygen 61 and mpd24. it will still recognize the midi messages but it just wont automap so youll do it yourself.

get an audio interface and adjust the sample rate til it doesnt clip

A couple of questions I had for you guys:

1) I've read on here and a lot of other places that the key thing is to master the music production software. Just wondering what software you guys recommend? Based on my research, I was thinking of starting to learn ableton and reason both, because I've heard this way you get the best of both worlds by rewiring reason into ableton to be able to use all their soft synths.

2) what do you guys recommend as the fastest way to learn to use these software? I don't ask this because I want to quickly become the next daft punk or anything, but the amount of free time I can devote would be limited, so it would be great if I could get the optimal amount of improvement in this amount of time

First, you need to get an ASIO driver for you PC. Something like ASIO4All (Google it). Next you need to calibrate your latency in Ableton or whatever you're using, which you can look up tutorials on how to do that on YouTube. In short, higher numbers in the latency means less quality in the audio but your computer will run faster (that means the popping will stop!)

And I don't mean to insult you but I'm not sure how long you've been producing so I figured I should cover all basis: The clipping might be operator error because the master level is too loud. Try turning ALL of your tracks down to make whatever song you're working on clip less. Then turn your speakers, or headphones, or whatever, UP! Don't worry, the levels will be fixed in mastering. Quiet songs are good songs (Pre mastering.. that is).

And as far as computer speakers go, forget it. Your options are 1) Get used to headphones or 2) Drop bills on nice monitors. Computer speakers, any kind, have got to be the crummiest things to mix on ever. And I say that only from experience.

Just to clarify, higher latency does not mean lower audio quality, it just means you have a larger audio buffer which takes a longer time to fill. This means audio will hit your speakers a bit late and anything you record in real time will also be late. Aside from having to nudge any recorded tracks forward, there's no real effect on your finished product. Keep your buffer at a low setting during tracking so all your tracks will be on time, then increase your buffer during mixing to allow for more plugin use with less CPU strain.

There is no replacement for spending countless hours if not years making music and messing around with a certain programs.

None.
