Lorn posted a topic in Production & Music MakingOk experts. Lets hear about Eqing. How do you deal with it with the drums? On pads? On atmospherics? On melodies? Do you eq every single channel and also a master? Do you start to eq immediately or do you like to have basic structure in first? Any experience would be great.

Hi guys! My favourite delay plugin has been NastyDLY by Variety Of Sound but it's Windows only. I'm looking for good and versatile alternatives that are released both Windows and Mac. What are yours most favourite delay plugins? https://varietyofsound.wordpress.com/2010/10/25/nastydla-final-teaser-and-release-info/
andorra posted a topic in Technical: Equipment and SoftwareHi! I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Elektron Octatrack? Specs with 8 sample channels and 8 midi channels is quite tempting for live use. I have tried it very quickly only once but I liked the idea how it works and how versatile the sampling can get.
How do you start a new track?
Lorn posted a topic in Production & Music MakingWhen I first started trying to produce I always started with the kick and bass. I knew I wanted to be in the psy ambient realm of music. This starting place simply never went anywhere for me. After experimenting and discovering some other well established artists who were sharing their own techniques...I now start by creating pads and textural sounds. I decide what key to use then simply spend some time layering smooth/ambient/textural sounds together. I am in no way an expert but i have progressed rapidly finding a way to start something. The track takes on its own course most of the time. I have spent lots of time dissecting tracks I want to sound like or create something similar. I think this is important, especially for learning arrangement, but it seems whenever I attempt to actually create a track with similar sounds I fail miserably. The track needs its own place and its own sound. So far starting this way has helped tremendously. Would love to read what others do.

About reverbs (VST)
andorra posted a topic in Production & Music MakingHi guys, I have few question about reverbs and how you use them. First of all, what's your favorite reverb (VST) you like to use as your workhorse? How many reverbs do you use in a song and how do they differ from each other? I mean do you have for example one reverb for hihats, other for snare and claps and one more with a bit different settings for synths or even for every synth it's own reverb? What's you workflow here? I'd love to hear some tips and practices of the use of reverbs. Thanks!
