we should make a mini contest here in the forums
each member submits one original track
then make a poll topic with all the members who submitted songs
and let the votes be cast


if someone wants to help me put this together PM me
I'll submit this song...

Edit:I say we ask Lazaro to be judge.
He's been jumping onto the forums a lot more lately.
Wouldn't hurt to ask.

Depends on how busy they are and how much frequency real estate they're taking up. You don't want them to be really noticeable but still contribute to the groove of the track. Use your ears (I know that's the most redundant advice ever, but it's truth)

On another note, you guys ever use a sidechain or vocoder to put some of the percussion grove into the bass??
With all the best/funkiest songs, the bass has it's own groove by itself without the drums. It's all intricate timing and dynamics, which is a bit annoying to go in a program the velocity for each note, so I've been thinking about using the sidechain in a reverse function, when hats and other percussion trigger the velocty of the bass.
I'm getting into french house/disco funk stuff, where the bass groove is really important. I was always trying to play really complicated shit with synths and stuff, and then I realized that I was just writing funk lines.

I bought an external monitor for my Macbook Pro and it actually came with the adaptor to connect it (my macbook pro did). So I rock Ableton Live on one window and my sample library on the other. Works great and I could never go back to one monitor. Worth every penny.

I can post pics if anyone cares
