just had a general question, maybe you guys can help me, seeing its a bit of an abstract question, or perhaps link me to some informative web sites?

okay well im having problems transitioning from sound to sound. like im getting the hang of matching/making beats pretty well but my only question is that i cant find a way to transition from sound to sound. like i have a pretty solid synth and bass line with some percussion, im just struggling in finding ways to transition from one drum/synth/percussion set to another one. like in a song, the sound changes every so often so it doesnt sound too repetitive, i just cant think of ways to transition to another section to the song.

can anyone help me out here? i know the questions a bit murky but its kinda hard to explain.

thanks


what kind of music are you making? best bet is to just listen to a song in the same rough genre as what you're making and see how they do it. often the phrase right before something changes has a little something to make it stand out from the repetitiveness of the bars before it. be it a crash, a roll, an extra snare hit, an open hi-hat, a sound effect, an effect like a low-kill, a sweep, or something.

here's a horrible visual representation. the actual sounds dont mean anything its the pattern.

boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom-tsh
do do do do do do do do de do
do do do do do do do do do de
boom boom boom boom boom boom boom ba-boom

nanananana nananananana nanananana(roll)
(crash) do be do wao wao do be do wao wao
do be do wao wao do be do wa wao
do be do wao wao do do do do do do
lalala di da di da lalala di da di da

anyway those are different transitions, they make sense in my head hopefully you can sing them in yours.

contusion, take a screen shot of that boom boom boom shit and make it your forum signature, that was probably the most epic post in this thread

and as far as transitioning from sound to sound go, just introduce when you start the next verse/chorus, as far as subtle changes go you could probably get away with doing it, or you can do some kinda break/bridge

Hey, I'm going to buy Reason, but I didn't know if there was a difference between the student version and the regular one, other than the price. Does anybody know? If there's no difference in the actual program, I'm definitely going to get the student price.

hey guys i'm getting a new laptop, and was thinking of getting into this.

how necessary is a macbook for this? so much so that it'd be foolish to get a windows-based laptop?

thanks...

hey i just came across this forum last night and have been reading up a lot of useful info. I'm having a hard time finding torrents for ableton 7 or cubase? I've been using Ableton 5 for awhile and wanna try out 7 to see if i like it but also wanna try out cubase to see what it's like. Also I have reason 3 (arrrrrr!) but when it asks for the instalation cd i dunno if there's some patch to use for that or what?

Thanks for posting so much info,

not necessary at all. if you get a decent laptop, you can accomplish the same things on either one. most music software comes in mac and pc form. i personally like the macbook more, especially for live use, because i find it more stable than my other laptops. and the ability to run both windows and os x is nice too.

I just got the full version of Reason, and it's awesome so far. Before, the only synth, drum machine, sequencer thing i had was a Fantom-X, better stock sounds for sure, but Reason's flexibility and opportunities are really incredible. I'd definitey reccomend that, but I guess you cant record actual audio from an input with that. I have cubase, so I'd reccomend that, but I think its really pretty complicated. There's always pro-tools, the industry standard.

Oh, and a response to why I actually paid for Reason:
The company seems to be doing some incredible things in advancing music production, so I don't mind supporting that goal.
