simple question

when you make a track or a remix and wanna lay down the vocals do you take the wave file and put it in a sampler and just sequence bits using midi? or do you just import the audio wave directly into the sequencer?

It sounds to me like a pretty standard kick sound but that he's stretched it out a bit longer than usual to make it ring out. try the freesound project for samples

A bit more than this. You actually have to get the track released and on beatport and then have people actually listen to it. Also in order for it to be #1 all the other tracks on beatport need to be less than "really good" or whatever level of goodness your track's at. This usually involves praying to some sort of levitating pasta monster or already being born as a velociraptor.

Performing as either of the afformentioned creatures can't hurt either.

It helped Deadmau5 at least

Word-thank you.

It's just that the bass drum in that song has a very prominent attack but extremely fast (but very well manipulated) decay. It's kind of like "Da Funk" type steez except mixed a little bit better.

I'm still unsure as to what to do to achieve a similar sound but I will certainly download and fuck around with a few of those 909 samples you've directed me to.

Thank you so much.

Im not shure, but i think... U allways have to "cut"/Sample the vocals, whit same Tempo of the track...

Try taking a kick sample and messing with the attack and release times on the sampler. Also try using a compressor or transient shaper.

so ive got a problem.

first off, im going to start with my equipment and software list, then what i want to do, then what isnt working.

1. equipment:
two CDJ-1000 MK2's
Korg zero4 Mixer
M-audio Keystation 88 pro
MPD32
triggerfinger
two macbook pro's
M-audio firewire 410
Conectiv (for torq control cd's)
1 to 4 USB hub
Torq (on both computers)
Ableton (on both computers)

2. what my friend and i want to do is use torq, the mixer and CDJs to DJ regularly. then we want to use post-mixer audio in ableton, with midi beat clock data being sent from torq, and use sample banks and effectrix on that audio, then send to speakers.

but we are having lots of trouble figuring it out, i just cant seem to get the routing right

anyone care to give some advice?

Isn't Torq a VST host? Why make things harder then they need to be.. load up effectrix and a drum sampler like guru/idrum/battery right in Torq, no? Does that not work? I only had the program for a month or two and hated it so I returned it so I have no idea.

But keep in mind.. straight up.. any kind of crazy rig you can think up in your mind might be perfect in your bedroom and horrible on stage. Anything that can go wrong WILL go wrong. It sucks but you don't want to be dealing with technical bullshit in front of a 1000 people, you know? bout as much fun as pulling your pubes out with some needle nose pliers.

all im trying to say is the less shit you have.. the less wires you got.. the less chance of things going wrong. keep it in mind dude, it's saved my ass plenty of times.
