The best way of discovering things about your software is by actually exploreing it. There's no point in just sitting on forms all day and trying to find out how to sound like Justice or whoever. Use the forms as a point of reference if you get really stuck but open up that software and really open it up!

Sometimes I wonder... Does everyone else use the same google as me? Cause when I need an answer and google it, I find it. Maybe it's a Google.ca thing or something...

Anyone want to talk about Dynamic mixing? Like automation, Sidechaining, Dynamic Eqs/multiband compressors, etc.

I'm trying to develop a technique where changes you'd make to a track for mixing, like cutting a certain frequency, would be dynamic instead of permanent. For example, you have a frequncy that's clashing between two instruments. Why cut it completely, when you can choose to cut it only when they're playing together? If you Eq so that they sound good together, when one stops or changes, the sound of things changes, and so should the mix.

I've also been thinking about space. Dynamically cutting or ducking certain instruments, when they're occupying the same stereo field as something more important.
When you're mixing and two things clash, you have to decide which one's more important and compromise the sound. This way, you can have both, just not at the same time. Everyone knows the trick of sidechaining the kick to the bass so they don't clash but you can still hear the bass in between beats. I'm trying to apply this techniques to other instruments, all ducking each other or specific frequency ranges of each other, in order to create a mix that changes depending on the music playing, and glues together better.

Maybe I'll hack together a VST that does all of this on it's own. Like the Waves L3 Multiband. You just set what priority your tracks are, adjust the individual compression settings and it would analyze the individual frequency ranges and make cuts depending on the track's priority.

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.


i did read from page one actually. the reason i asked is because if i recall someone was going to make a massive tut and i was just seeing if it was made already

so no need to get angry

i think i saw an interview where JFK says that a lot of times they'll record their own sounds (such as claps and things of that sort), so I would say that it's not out of the question for that to be a real cowbell sound in easy love.

Hey this is my first post, I hope you can help me im just learning with all this, and this seems to be a pretty good resource. In virtual dj you can cut the loops from 16 to 8 to 4 etc and gradually get that build up, know what I mean? Kind of like in crescendolls. Anway if anybody catched on, i'd like to know if theres anyway to do this in ableton smoothly, im kinda struglling. Thanks any feedbacks appreciated
