Cool. Now let me bombard you with questions. What program are you using?
User avatar #39668 to #39657 - Blaaah (11/20/2012) [-]
Please do go ahead, for making bootlegs or mashups I generally use FL studio, but if you're looking to do originals, you can use any of both: Ableton or Fl studio itself

Ok, I'm using FL studio and I cant tell you how much I love Kev Willow, the guy that does tutorials. Last night I sat down to try to make some kind of something (Im kind of new to electronic music), and following his guide I made something I find pretty cool. What VST's are you using?

for making bootlegs/ mashups you don't require many vst's, but usually I use Nexus and the 3xosc is pretty good too, if you need to know anything about electronic music in general you can ask, altough my main forte is house and some of trance. If you want to start producing you can start making some of those, until you can move on onto more complex things. You can add me up and I can keep teaching you through there if you want, too, just tell me where through.

teach me your ways! I always use 3xosc but the sound usually comes out really corny and basic. also If I try making a song i have trouble filling it in.. not sure if you catch my drift. its like theres not enough instruments in the song so it feels like if you had a band with only a drummer and a guitarist, no vocals, no bass guitar, no keyboard etc..

Sure, it depends usually, it can be as simple as a bassline and a few tribal sounds, take for example Fat Patchy by Muzzaik, with a simple melody plus a bassline and a few tweaks, like Alamo by Dirty South or it can be really complicated like some Daft Punk live mixes, it's all about letting your creativity flow and finding at least a decent harmony in things

thanks !. soundcloud.com/djmcbee/incomplete-tune <and this is a track i started today, i like it so far except I need to add to it and that's where I get stuck.. The drums are too basic and the snare sounds weird, plus I have no clue what to do after this hahah

A higher kick will make it sound clearer, add a little bassline and make an original mix, by this I mean put a minute intro, the song to the length you would like with at least a low part and a minute outro, that's a basic structure
User avatar #39723 to #39722 - mcbee (11/21/2012) [-]
thanks a lot, but what do you mean a low part?
User avatar #39724 to #39723 - Blaaah (11/21/2012) [-]
When you listen to any house song after the melody goes on for about a minute, there is kind of a "rest" where melody kinda fades and then enters and drops again, dunno if you get me, tell me if you need some examples
User avatar #39731 to #39724 - mcbee (11/21/2012) [-]
yeah i get what you mean ! thanks for the help
