  Looking for help with beginner studio setup
Posted by: Spectraz - 16th November 2017, 23:08 - Forum: Audio Production and Engineering - Replies (1)

I have always wanted to create music, yet I have never been able to put together a decent setup. A part of the problem is that I don't entirely understand how the gear 'communicates' with each other in a digital / analogue studio environment. Moreover, I have had problems with recording in my old version of Cubase, since old projects failed to load, and the midi keyboard seemed to live a life of its own.

I obviously need to sort this out during the forthcoming years. That's why I created this post and hopefully some of you will be able to give input and feedback so I can move on, and build some sort of momentum and foundation. As for goals, on is obviously just to sit around and create and experiment with gear. Another goal is to start an own label for any tracks I might finish and have a Bandcamp page.

Here is my current setup (packed away at the moment):

HP Pavilion a6632sc - Phenom 8550 / 3GB / 640GB / GeForce 9500 GS / DVD±RW / Vista HP - (I installed an older OS that worked better with Cubase)

I will probably need a new computer correct? Price range?

Cubase Essential 4 - (I never got this program to work correctly and it was buggy, had problems with loading projects and it didn't really connect well with the gear. It was probably my fault. What is today's most popular choice? And what do you guys use? Logic? Ableton?)

External soundcard
Edirol - UA 25EX - (This might still work and is decent right?)

M-Audio - Oxygen 8 v2, USB MIDI - (It worked, but I wasn't happy about it. It didn't work well with the Blofeld, but that might have been my fault though. In this case I am thinking that I ought to work with a workstation of somekind, or perhaps use a bigger USB MIDI-Keyboard.)

AKG240S - (I think that the sound was good for it is supposed to be used for: creating and mixdowns. However, sometimes i just want to hear the HIFI-loudness version of the tune, do you know what I mean? - How it is supposed to sound in a loud pair of speakers or a couple of headphones that are maxed out when it comes to bass. When I made a tune, and it sounded ok (to my unskilled ear), then the final unmastered result sounded lame and without packing a punch.)

Studio monitors
Genelec GE-8020AP - (I am very happy with these for now. They are probably the best thing about the setup to be honest.  Neutral ) I thank Johan 'Wezzler' for the recommendation.

Waldorf Blofeld - (Yes, I bought a Blofeld many years ago, and apparently some producers use it for ambient / techno?! I think this piece of gear will stay in my setup, but I need it to team up well with sequencer / midi / workstation etc. in order to be able to record it. I never actually understood how I recorded it. Should I use MIDI and arrange all the parameters and save the settings with creating a tune, or should I record waw's of the Blofeld and save on the computer, thus saving a sound digitally and go from there?)

When it comes to creating music, I'm mainly concerned with these genres:

Jungle, Drum 'N' Bass, Hip-Hop, beats/breakbeat, Techno, Dubtechno, Ambient Techno, Ambient, Acid, experimental soundscapes

So, guys, what pieces of the gear puzzle am I missing? I am a beginner in terms of studio creation and analogue hardware Oops , but I can get around in the digital environment so I atleast can make a 4/4 beat with drums and percussion. Hahaha

  Sarah Jane Gray (artist, one half of Broken Library band)
Posted by: Muttley - 14th November 2017, 15:28 - Forum: Subvert Central - Replies (1)

I encountered Sarah Jane Grey and her bandmate Sam Pope, playing covers and original material as the band Broken Library, in Witney in late October 2017. The happy couple suffered joint brain haemorraghes at different points in life, and Headway charity helped them to release this.

I've just visited Sarah's artist website for the first time, piqued by the CD paintings in the inner sleeve of their "Jigsaw" album, a collection of song-writing covers and original works. The album is available to buy on there, and the busking style gig I attended filled me with hope and joy.

Both very friendly folk, and Sarah's a dab had with paints - check out her watercolour paintings here: ...I find them imbued with child-like clarity and optimism, but with a earnest maturity beyond their years that Is capturing of all the finer aspects of texture, tone, and ordinance. Having studied visual art at the Open Uni the material would fit right in at the Tate, it's that interesting.

Secret d*bstep.. more like rotting on my doorstep @#!
Posted by: +ToRMeNT+ - 12th November 2017, 21:33 - Forum: Subvert Central - Replies (17)

instant stream of consciousness thought for a thread title, ya dig?  lol. 


We all know NOBODY listens to dubstep anymore. Scratch SadwavePerhaps for good reason too. I mean.. imo, trap has usurped most of dubstep's production sounds, while incredibly simplifying production techniques 10 fold, AND has jointly provided an even MORE extreme bass perversion for those that need it. Dubstep seems rather pedestrian by today's standards in bass music productions, imo. In 2017,  i view dubstep as a mere footnote to what was to come.  Still, you can't deny, whether good or bad, bass musics, hip-hop, trap, later eras of dnb (as we know), and a myriad of current commercial pop electronic tunes heard anywhere today, would NOT be here without dubstep.  It happened.  People know what dubstep is..  the general public who know nothing of dance music lingo, know the term "dubstep".   The sound was completely integrated, and passively received, perhaps killing any "edge" the music may have had, of course.  In all honesty, a dark, instrumental trap mix is more interesting to listen to, more "head nodding" , subversive, and extreme in comparison.  

If anything, I think that any notable reference to dubstep today might merely reinforce the standard UK garage connection, which I am a fan of, from back in the day. There are still blips of decent tunes posted about.  It has been roughly 15 years + of reference points you can sift through now. I stopped listening in... I can't even remember. Maybe 2006?  I was even still djing back then. Perhaps some of the Skull Disco releases were some of my final dubstep vinyl purchases back then?  Hotflush was moving on, as were other labels and producers.   "brostep" killed it for me.. perhaps the genre in general.  Things moved on and changed, as we all know. Grime stepped up again in recent years, to various degrees.  I STILL listen to old Hotflush Recordings podcast and mixes.  Earlier Hotflush Recs is always an instant reference point for me, it is like "comfort food" for my sonic tastes. heh. Hotflush was always quality back then. TOASTY for life really. Smile

Kahn & Neek, Bandulu Recs, doing it for recent stuff.   I might check out blips here and there. Hence this thread. 

Random dubstep picks, from 15+ years of music now, perhaps some grime'ting as well.   Including stuff I've never heard myself, nor checked out before the music fell void to my needs.   Feel free to share your own discoveries and gems. 

Cheers.  Xyxthumbs
