there is no "proper" way to make a song. what you may be referring to is the standard 32 bar pattern, usually you just add or remove stuff, for example on the last chorus before the outro beats, theres usually some chords added

what exactly is the standard 32 bar pattern? what kind of overall structure should I be going for? I kind of see what to do for the intro and outro, gradually introducing elements, but I don't know what to do with the middle.

Whatever your heart desires man... a breakdown, a piano solo... you name it... as long as its good and drives the song.

Listen to some tracks before you sit down to lay your stuff out... Listen to like fake bloods stuff, he has a definate pattern there, easy to pick up on. Im not saying copy his stuff but maybe get some inspiration.

Taylor are we ever going to talk about convolution? It sounds nutty, i wonder if there's any proggies that'll do it nicely for you. It's sounds like it's kinda similar to vocoding...

yeah, pretty similar to vocoding, except vocoding just uses a carrier frequency, convolution actually uses a formula to transfer the sonic properties of one to another

Is there like an "E Z Sound Convolver" Vst or something? I'm guessing it's going to require some work

and what did you think of them for like mixing, in terms of sound quality and if they feel comfortable and solid?

says nothing about what material and how big the drivers are, says nothing about response, more of a (ugly)fashion statement than a serious headphone for production/djing

the question was directed at people who have used them who presumably know the specs on them already. it wasn't a general question asking for people to "rate these headphones based on the information(i neglected) to provide"

i agree they are a bit of a fashion statement, which was why i posed the question. I wanted to know if they are more than a big pair of colorful attention seekers.

the only vst you need is massive, once you get good at it, sound design becomes pretty easy


I have massive which I use inside of ableton. Only I'm having trouble creating my own sounds. don't fancy the presets either.

Do you need really good turntables to use serato?

Or can i buy beginner ones, like a battle pack or something and that will work?
