Customer Kudos "I just like to say that I am enjoying Theta Music immensely! I am a complete novice when it comes to music theory and your system is just so easy to understand, I'm constantly having aha moments! After only a short period of time my listening skills have improved dramatically and I wasn't expecting this because I was not sure that I had the ability to develop in this area." - A.S.

Lessons on Compression: Change your Attitude Before your Amplitude says Steve Hillier | Point Blank BlogTackling compression in a thousand words is a tall order, but I’m reasonably tall so I’m going to give it a try. More than any other audio effect, myth and folklore has sprouted, grown and thrived around compression. We know compressors do something important; we read about it everywhere… we’re just not sure what that is.
It’s been said that the low end of your mix is “what separates the men from the boys.” But it can be really hard to get right, right? Every mix poses its own unique challenges, and I never mix two songs the same way. However, here are 6 tips for getting a handle on the low end in your mix. Some of these may seem odd or strange. Give ‘em a shot.
To put an end to all those "how to make a bassline", I've decided to make this illustrated tutorial. Hope you enjoy it. This is by no means the correct way, and using the settings you see in the screenshots won't help you since they don't sound that good actually.
Boom! Time for another producer Q&A. This week I'm particularly chuffed to present the U.S. legend that is Bassnectar . Pioneer of that slow, swinging, bass heavy sound he sometimes calls swamp-hop, it's now slowly getting recognition worldwide, as part of that hip-hop influenced West Coast scene that includes the likes of Glitch Mob, Flying Lotus et al. Get on over to his site to download a few free tracks and see what it's all about. Bassnectar is honestly one of the best party DJ's I've seen, switching tempos so quick it left me scratching my head how he did it - although you can see from his gig list he gets plenty of practise.
We are going to introduce a new feature where I talk to a professional digital dj about his techniques and personal way of using dj technology. This month I interviewed Dj Lorin for my Remix magazine column . The printed version was only a part of the full interview bellow. Some of you may be familiar with Lorin’s sets and some of you may not. Here is a clip from the article which describes his sound:
10 Essential Tips for Making a Living with Your Music by Christopher Knab - Fourfront Media & Music - Updated April, 2010 Back to The Academy Everybody loves Top 10 Lists , from David Letterman's countdowns, to the Huffington Post's top 10 this and that. It’s a fun way to maintain the illusion that in a complex world, things can be simpified, or dumbed-down.

To get the right sound, you may need to cut some bass freq - try dipping the freqs around 100hz. Then send it to a return effect with a chorus effect to get the stereo width. For the sliding, just use portmanteau. Massive would be very well suited for this sound.

If 1991 was the year punk broke, 2011 was the year club music crept into the heart of America. In a trend that was born in the EU and Scandinavia and has been building stateside for the better part of a decade, the floodgates burst open this year with everyone from Rihanna to Britney Spears riding the coattails of Euro-styled synth hooks to the top of the charts. In-demand DJs are now pocketing as much as $200,000 a show and selling out multiple nights in cities from New York to Los Angeles.

Ever wonder how to apply the EQ and compression to kick drums? Applying EQ and compression are one of the most important things you should consider when mixing kick drums. As a start, the kick drum EQ settings and compression depends on the song genre. For example, your kick drum sounds different in rock versus jazz or country music.

So i generally produce alot of 4/4 kinda stuff and getting groove in my tracks is one of those things i seem to struggle with. It also seems like one of the most important parts for techno flavoured music. So..... Where to start! There are the obvious 'turn quantise off', 'do what feels right' etc.
