Duh cuz it's betta
"My computer smokes yours and I didn't pay half what you paid"
That's like the whitebox pc's motto

And holy fucking crap! Waves for mac means it'll either get released for pc really soon, or I'm just going to have to make a virtualized hackintosh vm to use it. Either way, complete Waves? Hellz yea nigga

Not sure, but complete is everything. I think mercury might not have the newer stuff that came out based on professionals.

Also PC > Mac for anyone who knows how computers work and can tweak em. Thats why I use it. Im not someone who just needs "It just works!" crap. Overpriced garbage...

haha oh c'on not this argument again. For anyone that knows anything about computers they're pretty much the same. I prefer mac os for some stuff and pc for other...

God damn it I just wipe my comp just so I could reinstall the essential plugs I use the most. Anyone know if you can selectively install the waves plugs? I don't want 300 plugs... just two really... I wish I could just buy them I would. I hate *bundles... It's like Adobe and their 4 hour install for Photoshop that install all the other bullshit EVEN after you uncheck it all from the installer. Jesus (Imagine I said that in Spanish...)

How do you guys go about making a song around an idea you had? I have this main beat that I quite enjoy
(http://soundcloud.com/bdk-1) though I can't see the rest of my arrangement or possible direction. Should I just move on? I think I'm stuck because I don't know enough about production yet and all I can make are little loops for now. LOL Though any help would be great! Thanks.

Usually you can select what you want. If you end up having to install it all just delete everything you dont want. Easy as that.

Loops sound pretty good. I can suggest a few things:

1) Listen to the music you like and analyze the shit out of it. Listen for what was done with build ups. Listen for the usual 4-8-16 bar type of changes in instruments. Listen for effects/drops/gains/etc that make the song interesting. Then learn how to do this.

2) Start watching some videos on how to put songs together (Sonic Academy) or even some producer videos.

When you make loops like that figure out what you like the best out of it. Follow what you like about it and build from there. When listening to the loop think about what other sounds would add to the clip and at what you could add. Once you build a crazy in depth clip with lots of layers. Start changing effects, cutting out instruments, etc to make different parts of the song.

Build a base sound and add on to it from there.

I'll check into some more Future Music videos and listen to some more music. Thanks for the help!

cant delete the ones you dont want. waves plugins use something called a waveshell and all the plugins are located within that waveshell so you cant delete just a single program. there is, however, a utility for the pc that can seperate waveshells into seperate vsts but the name eludes me.

i think its called shell2vst

I just wiped my MAC so I do not have a PC partition to test this out on. I'm wondering if anyone has tried this and can tell me if it's possible...

I'm starting a new collab project with a musician friend of mine. He's got some great ideas, and the combination of my production knowledge and his music abilities will be a fun project.

He's on a PC & I'm on a MAC (haha like that those lame ass commercials)

I'm wondering if it's possible to sync up our computers. Let me elaborate:

If we run the same version of Ableton. And sync the plugins we use so that they are the same versions, can we save our project into a Cloud storage... let's say DropBox... And both access the file and work on it.

So the question is... if I'm on a MAC running let's say Sylenth, Fabfilter etc etc... and he's on a PC running the same plugs, same versions but on a PC will he be able to open up the project, edit and vice versa?

Hoping to be able to Collect All & Save and work together in his studio, then when we're not there we can both tweak etc etc and keep developing the tracks... ?

youre better off just saving audio and midi renders from each track and sending him the patches for each synth

just put it all in a zip or rar file.

Yeah I'll do that if I can't figure out this sync.

Trying to make my own snare drum. I know this is hard to get the "perfect snare" but I need something more than just samples (ugh). Of course I could sample multiple snares and make my own... but anyone got any VSTs in mind that make snare sounds so I can customize it easily on the fly?

Thanks.

Edit:
Also I could use some help if some of you make it from a typical synth. Ive done a fast attack n delay with noise to get that *pop. However, the rest of the sound doesnt sound like a snare. Could use help here too.

hello people of the "making electronic music" thread

i'm trying to get more into this whole producing thing, and since i'm a drummer i thought i would redo the drums on the track "round table knights - calypso". So, i did this, but it sounds... flat? I feel like the sounds aren't able to breathe, if that makes any sense.

how do i fix this? does it have to do with mastering? mixing? panning? (imma noob)

and the changes i made start at like 2:15

THANKS
