An Artists Best Age For Creativity? 2 years ago
The musical peak is for everyone. Now to start getting INTO the concept of music production, being in a band and such. I believe that should start as soon as the person has a general idea about music, basic concepts, and of course knows how to take criticism.

It's seems like it's more opinion, but scientifically, I have no idea when an individuals mind is fully open and expressed into the world of music production. I'd assume late 20's early 30's. But I'm really not sure.
Artist name change? NEED INPUT 2 years ago
Debating the issue...

I have been thinking about creating another profile. It would be for my music only, no party mixes, open collabs, ect. Strictly my songs and collabs. It would have nothing to do with my DJ side. All my production side.

I would keep my DJ Siatt account, but that would be used for my shows, party mixes, that stuff.

I still haven't come up with a name yet, but I have a few ideas swimming around.


What do you folks think?

A issue is that many people know my production side as DJ Siatt, and not as something else. It would be difficult because of that transition, but from there, it's smooth sailing.

This production side of me would start getting serious. I'd get my name out there, get a few people to be like workflow managers, Album and Cover artist, site manager, ect...

I'm looking forward to this. But doing it from scratch and for free will be a major challenge.

Please lend me some input on this matter.

I don't use my own work for an idea on my next piece. I usually listen to the type of song I want to make, for example, if I wanted to make a Trance song, I might listen to Tiesto before I make it. Then I listen to other people's trance songs and I start getting ideas and such. Like a solid baseline and a nice drum pattern. After that I don't take any insparation and I build off of whatever comes.

But I do go back and listen to my stuff sometimes just to remember the old days...

Wow..... response to a track someone tried to steal...... 2 years ago
That's so effed up man. So sorry that happened. And two year??? Damn, that is far to long to have the track in (production/mixing) more from what I read. The guy probably has had way too much going on in those years (it seems like an hour a week for those years).

Anyways, how dare he try and take your song and your content and make it his own. And what an idiot for coming out and saying it. That's like putting handcuffs around your hands and turning yourself in for something you were planning on doing...

And just like Angelo said.... Arse. (well stated Angelo).

I'm glad you got it all cleared up, that would have been a nightmare for me.

@becwil isn't having the community collaborate on the bill a bad idea? What if some money tycoon has invested in some music buessness or what not, and he try's to throw in some of the more strict guidelines from SOPA. Then other people start agreeing with him because he is good at wording things and making people think what he wants.

Remember the "occupy" protests? What if that "1%" goes and adds their ideas to the bill (but using an alias of course). Then if the bill gets mostly those ideas that were taken from the SOPA and/or PIPA bill and woven into their collaboration ideas. Obama would end up creating the bill based on what the 1% people said and can argue his point that "I am doing what the people want." Of course, that 1% was disguised as people of the public, and soon enough we have a full on SOPA bill that is really called the OPEN bill...

So IMO, this collaboration thing might not be the best idea. And Obama was never the "sharpest knife in the drawer".

Its something new. I made it yesterday, it has a feel of Eminem and Fort Minor (intro piano, simple hiphop drums, many violins, some synth, bass, ect). Cussing would add to the feel of the rap, so whatever you think is good.

@ZipZipper the Mainstage program that cost 30 dollars should enable you to download the exact same Jambacks that you paid hundreds of dollars for before. Even Logic cost less than two Jampacks now so buying the Jam packs from someone at the old price would not be wise.

@DJ_Siatt. No EQ can turn a cheap synth into a 20 piece first violin section. You need sampled instruments to get something close.


I must say that compared to a the garageband default sounds adding the Mainstage or Logic Jampacks gives you pretty good classical samples.


Wow, I was way off then... smiley still, it works for me. smiley

im no expert on classical, but i believe it is the way you EQ the whole thing. one instrument at a time needs to be EQed to how it would sound live right in front of you, and not by speakers. Its hard to get, but with everyone else's info, i think you will have it down.

Virtual Instruments 2 years ago
What do you mean by "realistic" sounds? Do you mean clear and high quality, or as if the instrument was played live right in front of you? I think any DAW program is good for this, it just really depends on the plugins and the default instrument packages.

Logic 9 verssus NI Komplete 8 2 years ago
hiphopmoses wrote:
Logic at $200 is way more bang for the buck, Komplete needs a daw to record and keep it in the digital realm even as a stand alone that seems more limiting to me, and Machine is not part of Komplete 8. Now GB is limited but atleast you can record and I do feel there is a lot people don't realize how or what logic can do but $1000 bucks for Komplete 8 and it needs a daw to record even if you had Machine which is another $600 you still need a Daw to record vocals... Now I like Komplete but it's no way in the world it's more bang for the buck to me. Logic can do way more than just classical especially electronica. With the Efm1, es1, es2,esE, esM, esP, you have the ability to make sounds never heard before just requires tweaking and the same goes with Sculpture & Ultra beat. I like massive but it's more preset oriented to me, they are pretty good presets and samples. Now I'm speaking from the perspective of if you don't have either but inspiredbeats has it so that's a different story.

It would be interesting to hear what logic can't do for you DJ_Siatt maybe there is a way and we just haven't found it.


I think bottom line for me is Ableton. Imo, Ableton lie can do anything and everything I have imagined up. As for logic 8, I've spent countless hours at Guitar Center (recording room) and messed around with Logic 9. It is a pretty decent program, but I hvent heard of anyone doing live DJ performances with it or, what I'm mor interested in, is Sound Design. I know that it can create new sounds and such, but I've tried to make a simple sound effect for a movie or something, which was a laser gun shot. Ya know, a charge up, then a huge ringing BOOM sounding laser shot? I've been trying to create one for ages. I've made a suitable one with ableton, but even the guys at GC who use logic can't figure out how to make one, one suggested to start off by stretching a Ride drum sound and piling on the effects, but it doesn't sound clear, smooth, and natural. With Razor and Massive, there are so many different ways to make what I'm after, and I've seen someone do it to show me, but no one I know can seem to make one in Logic 9. Again, it truly is all about a matter of opinion and whatnot. I like a simple, easy and yet deeply sophisticated DAW like ableton, plus an infinite amount of plugins from either atmospheric space sounds, to hardcore Electronica. I know FL is big on Electronica, but that thing is nearly impossible to figure out. I manage to make a 4 measure drum beat and make a little animated person dance to it. But FL is another story.

It's hard to decide between either Logic 9 or Komplete 8 "ultimate", but the things that I would seriously take into account is if you have a DAW or not, and what you are looking for the software to do.

Logic 9 verssus NI Komplete 8 2 years ago
I feel that Komplete 8 Ultimate has everything a producer needs to perform from tools like Massive to Maschine. These tools seem full to the brim, and with the whole set, the options seem endless. Now, as for logic 9, I feel that all apples DAWs such as GB and Logic are too limiting. I don't know what it is about them, but the user interface, midi usage (ways to use the midi) and the instruments themselves all seem to restrictive for what I hope to do in the future.

Komplete 8 Ultimate, although expensive, is definitely worth the pay, and I don't think you will be disappointed. Also, I am not sure if NI's Razor is included with the K8 Ultimate, but if it isn't, I would also recommend getting that one too.

In the end, I guess it all boils down to what you are looking at using the program for. All DAWs are better than others at some specific thing from live performances, to movie soundtracks.

I've really enjoyed songs that are full of "classical" and cinematic that have been made by Logic (listen to becwil's music. You would know what I mean), however, I've heard amazing electronic performances by DJs and producers who use Komplete 8 Ultimate (Such as Skrillex, I know a lot of people hate his music, and a lot love it, but I just think it's amazing how he gets his music to sound the way it does. I believe he uses Massive and recently is using Razor...).

Bottom line, I would say that Komplete 8 Ultimate is the better choice just because I'd say you get more "bang for your buck".

problem creating a certin type of drum ending 2 years ago
Basically, to program it, get the single audio file of one cymbal crash. Have about 5 audio tracks. And make them close enough together so they sound constant and not cut out as they would sound if you only had parts of it loop on one track.

Do you understand what I'm saying.

Weird... smiley

Sounds like a visual delay and/or other software problems. I don't know anything offhand on what to do, but you might want to have apple see what's up with it. Don't go spending money to have it looked at or fixed (if it's something really simple to fix).

So have some expert take a look. Ask what needs to be done to be fixed. Maybe even google some info about this problem.

It's deffinately a software bug as far as I know.
