EDIT
More Questions:
I plan on mixing with some headphones rather than studio monitors for at least a year+. So far from research I have found a handful of good views on the AKG 240, 272, 601, 701, and 702.. or Beyerdynamic DT 100, or cheaper Sennheiser HD 280 Pro...
--> What do you guys think of any of these? I am going towards more of the AKG 601s from what I heard.

--> Does the NI Audio 4 DJ act like an external sound card so I could use it to DJ and in the studio?


1. it really doesn't matter that much with headphones because its all about just getting used to them. felix and laidback luke both use headphones that are under $100 i think. i wrote a whole album with a $60 pair of shures. just listen to TONS of music on them so you really really know what "good" sounds like.

2. yep.

also, merc, you'll have to tell me how your akgs feel after extended use, i love my audio technicas but i cant wear them for more than 2 hours.

Does anyone have some ideas on how Justice's "NewJack" ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfDQg2dF8uw )was produced?

I know about the main riff being a sample, but I mean stuff like at 0:40 in that video to 0:50 where whenever that distorted note plays, the rest of the track is muted - how is that done? Is that sidechain compression (I've never used it)?

And when those backward sounds play between 1:11 - 1:22 , the same sort of thing is happening: the rest of the track is muted while they play. What would be the easiest way to do such a thing? The only ways I can imagine right now are kind of tedious, like automating track solos and mutes so much.

lots of the ed banger dudes bounce to audio and then 'remix' the track from there to get that choppy sound. i'm guessing that's what justice did for newjack.

When people do edits, theyre usually just rearranging the parts. Is this right?, Any other cool things people do?

Heres my edit of Deadmau5's FML
http://www.mediafire.com/?qdmijmyyjxo

Also, I've heard it's bad to use 320kbps for edits because it kills quality. I used a VBR for that one ^. I don't really hear any loss, but my ears aren't the most quality sensitive.

Here's my process,
-Put file into ableton
-Rearrange
-Export as .wav with 24 bit depth(what's this mean?), Sample rate is the standard 44100, Dither option Triangular(I don't really know what this is either)
-Put .wav in Audacity and then export it from there as a 300kbps

Any feedback on how I could either improve this process or if I'm doing it fine then I'd like to know as well. Thanks!

I really liked that article, definitely a sentiment that every producer should have, sort of just reaffirmed my own beliefs, which is always a good thing.

Yeah same, I always thought about small labels pushing out a EP from an artist almost monthly. It seems like how the epic producers become great is through occasional releases, but enough to feed on.

i agree as well. i also think its lame that people are willing to trade honor for money, if the few tracks you are making arent enough to survive, get a job and make yourself useful. dont just make more shit tracks!!

it kind of reminds me of the fountainhead when howard roark has to work in a quarry to survive. yes, he had difficult times. but he stayed true to his principles, and ultimately prevailed.

Either A) You dont know how to produce (or at least well) or B) You need to be more specific. If you dont knw how to produce well, learn how (plenty of information on the internet about this, check out my How To link thread). If you do know how be more specific, like what part of producing (this can also be searched on the internet as well).

To new users: DO YOUR RESEARCH.

Hey ya'll

Just worked my ass off during the break and now im back at home and I realized I need monitors more than anything. Im trying to stay around the $250 or less range but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or good ebay/los angeles craigslist finds as of late. Any thoughts? I wanted to try to buy used b/c i thought i'd get a better deal.

Also, I want to stay away from the lower priced KRK 6s, they make everything sound like its coming out of a bums asshole.
