I have about 900 classic breaks as well if anyone wants them. They're easy enough to find all over the internet.

I actually care if you're honestly willing to explain.

Hi I wonder if anyone could help, I'm trying to create a really good rounded saw bass sound listen to 'Hi Friend' by Deadmau5 if you want to know the kind of sound I am talking about, just wondering if anyone could help me with this.
Thanks

I usually create an aux track that contains an eq, saturator and reverb for my drums. I then route all of the misc. drum parts to that track to give it a uniform feel and a bit more oomph. But I don't route the snare, kick or claps usually. Those usually require more specific reverb and eq to them.

I couldn't do this with a mutli-out drum sampler. I would have to put the same reverb/eq/saturator on EVERY drum hit I wanted to unify.. and it would be hell if I wanted to change a single setting. I'd have to change like 8 of them. What a waste of time.

That's the simplified version.

Man I cannot get into reverb. I know it's necessary for dimension and space in a good mix and all, but whenever I put verb on a track and get a setting that sounds good, I bypass the reverb and it sounds better. Reflection on my terrible mixing skills perhaps?

Also, does anyone know how to run a stereo track into a sidechain compressor (C1-sc) and not have to use the R->L trigger method? I have stereo guitar panned medium left and right and if I want to put them through the sidechain, they need to be hard panned left for the kick to compress them. Otherwise, the right channel guitar is ducking the left channel one. I don't want to lose any stereo information, but I can't figure out how to use the sidechain in stereo mode. (I'm using Pro Tools)

basically, your mixer tracks would look like this:
(Kick) (Snare) (Hats) (Cowbell) (Click) (Infant Scream) (Aux 1)

everything (except for kick and snare) comes out of its own track and gets routed into aux 1, which has reverb, etc. on it. That way, everything gets processed by the same parameters and you don't have a different sounding effect on each track. Without this, you'd have to have a separate effect on each track, which would eat up CPU and also require you to copy the same settings several times over. Otherwise, it would sound like your cowbell is in one room and your screaming infant is in another. No one wants that.

Yeah Kyran hit it dead on, that is exactly what I do. Screaming infants et al. I'd like to start a youtube series, I just don't know dick about video editing or whatever and I spend all my free time writing music haha.

Sometimes I'll three or four aux tracks going on in just the drums alone.. altogether I'd say my project files are 2/3 Midi, 1/3 aux tracks.. and maybe the occasional audio track. Mostly for acapellas when remixing or if I decide to run shit through my old akai console to get a nice warm vintage sound out of it.

^I've got one of those, but in automatic.


Here's a trick for you DJ douchebags that I just figured out.

If you've got a DJ program like Traktor that has the beatmasher effect, you can use it to reloop one bar phrases on top of the existing track, without having to run two decks. I figured this out while playing DIM's My People remix. I wanted to loop the "And it feels so good" part after the build because it was a bit sparse, and the n00bs we'll be playing to lose interest if there's no vocals.

I set the beatmasher to 1/1 or a full bar, and turned the mix all the way down. Once the part came in that I wanted, I held the action button down, which started looping that one bar on top of the song. (which you can't hear it because the effect mix is down) Then after the build when I wanted some more vocals, I just turn the effect mix up and EQ the main mix a bit, so they fit, and voila, vocals from a few bars ago! Then you can fuck with the gate settings and duration to get it to reloop at different spots and make it a bit more interesting. You can't do some things with this trick that you would with a loop running on a separate deck, like EQing and additional effects, but it's a hell of a lot easier, and you can do it on the fly without any preparation.

Hopefully when Traktor Pro drops Saturday, you'll be able to have multiple beatmashers on one track, allowing you to sample multiple bits from the track and bring them back in when you want.

Or you could just edit the song! That would probably take three seconds to do.

Or you could just mix everything beforehand and just put on a CD...
