it's not that I want to sound like them, but those are two sounds that seem to be pretty prevalent in electro music, I was just using them as examples.

Ah, man... We went over this. In this very thread I believe. Just skim through some of these pages. Clue: Sidechain compression

yeah, I had a feeling that side chain compression had a lot to do with that dirty sound. Slap bass though? Should I just record my own slap bass tracks?

I'm an ableton user and I'm just getting into the world of producing electro. I've got a few questions.

First, You know how justice and MSTRKRFT and many other electro producers use that real gritty sound like in the MSTRKRFT DANCE remix? How is that sound attained? Is it just a lot of distortion and compression? Could someone give me a walk through basically on how to attain a sound like that?

Second, how can I get that nasty slap bass sound? Do I have to find a sweet slap bass line or is there some way i can do that in ableton and not have it sound stupid?

Any other tips that you want to give to a beginner electro producer (again, I'm using ableton if you have any ableton specific tips as well) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

PS, I can see that some of you guys put a lot of work into helping other people out on this board and i think it's real cool and I definitely appreciate all the time and effort you guys must put in to helping others.


about the real gritty sound...just make something along the lines of what you think the "gritty" sound is...you will never be able too get the sound you want the first try...it takes tons and tons of practice...and about the bass slaps....I think it's really simple...just make an awesome bass line and run it through an amp...or just get some sick disco samples

i'm going to be getting a macbook for christmas, and i'm buying a microkorg soon.
will the macbook be able to handle the keyboard? does it have the processing power?
and what programs do you guys recommend for recording, besides garageband.
sorry if this has been answered before.

It would probably be a good idea to read this thread in its entirety.

The real e*vax would already know the answer to this.

In short, the new macbooks are beasts. They will be able to "handle" pretty much anything you could throw at it. You're confusing some things though. The microkorg is a hardware synth, it does not need the macbook to function at all, it can be used as a standalone instrument. You can connect it to the macbook and use it as a midi controller, which would also work. If you wanted to record the sounds coming out of the microkorg your macbook would only be recording an audio signal, which almost any computer from the past 10 years could handle. However, you'll also need some sort of firewire audio interface.

As for software, Logic is a good choice for mac, it does everything you could need. It sounds like you are new to all of this though, so you might be in over your head with complicated programs like Logic. It might be a better idea to start off simple, buy a cheap m-audio midi controller for under $100 bucks, and use garageband's built-in instruments for a while. Also, read this whole thread, watch every youtube video you can find, and look at sites like soundonsound.com and audiotuts.com, before asking more questions here.

Excellent. A new guy that already know what's up.
And it's true. I posted a youtube video somewhere in this thread
that was a basic tutorial on making a Dubstep wobble bass patch.
Referring to ForEffectDj. Just start at page 1. I started on page 5 a
long time ago. I'm plenty sure there is some useful information here.
