  1. What an awesome example of progress. Really enjoyed watching the growth of your project Martian Arts and finally ending at the party. Ur an inspiration.
  2. Well sure , however it can be avoidable. by checking each sound with ur vectorscope and adjusting the stereo image. Or using a stereo widening tool - take it down to mono and open it up until its close to zero, but yes, eventhough you control it like this it sometimes still shoot passed zero for a second. My point on this Q was that many reference tracks looks super wide. but with my tracks - the K&B pulls the whole image to mono - or too close to mono. Can be that the volume levels is too high, but needs to be like that to be the main elements in the track.
  3. I actually agree. Out of all the sample packs i've checked out through the years I have never .... ever found one that has amazing samples. I am talking about the sounds you hear when you listen to a Psytrance set on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNVp5IwQcYc You can't state that it will take our tracks to the next level. lol Samples and Loops taking us to the next level. cmon Maybe if you started producing yesterday. Only way IMO, is to learn synthesis \ better yet modular synthesis and create YOUR OWN music. It's the only way to get there. No offense dude..
  4. Exactly PS.. asking questions is a necessity to progress, otherwise doing it on ur own, you will start out where the guys started out when synthesis was invented. With today's technology it does give us some shortcuts to get up to speed. Even if you just sit an entire weekend watching synthesis vids on you tube will definitely help a great deal. Learning from others is key. Also nowadays you even get video courses on production and music theory etc. which would have been an amazing gift to give someone back in the day. However i believe the web has made many of the new producers l
  5. Sorry man - I see ur actually Purple Sunray, my bad. - otherwise I would be Enlightened Ape, lol Yeah I know what ur saying - I own the Shure SRH440's which does have great quality. The reason it's so difficult to get strait answers in music production is because experienced producers have realized that you can only really get there with the amount of experience you have with the gear and tools. I see so many Q's like how to EQ a kickdrum... Which kick drum, cause each has unique timbres, present frequencies etc. It's all about how it was synthesized. How much the sound was filtered
  6. Many interesting points raised. Thanks Awaken I do know about the phase cancellation yes - that is not the case, however in some instances it can be - especially when playing many leads together each created individually, but then I would rather say masking would become a problem. I believe it is all about the reflections like you said. Still working on padding the walls but budget a bit tight - after my monitors. I've got wooden floors and walls so yeah not the best studio environment. lol Yes I never quite knew how important distance / placement was until I tried recording
  7. Cheers.. Yes i've checked out the PAZ before. Still - for me Ozone's one is nicer. I do have a question though. Is it neccessary to have anti-phase present in various parts of the track cause i've seen it in many reference tracks before.. especially when the beat is not playing. ?
  8. I do have a vectorscope. I use the one that comes with Izotope Ozone. And I do keep the phase between +1 and 0. The above replies gave me a good idea. It could be a combination of the harmonics of the room and the stereo effect of the instruments. Cause I do tend to want to have stereo on every instrument to keep the stereo image as wide as possible. Obviosuly Kick & bass stays in mono.. And all that stereo can give that loose sounding effect to the track. Cause many of the leads have uncontrolled stereo, u know, not synced - which probly causes the moving sound when I move a
  9. Cheers man. Yeah I've been producing psy for about 12 years now, and have read so many tips and advice that everything starts to become a cliche. However I never seem to implement the advice and knowledge that people give me. So it's good to hear it over and over. One of my problems is that I tend to mix from the start. Which after a long time I have found counter-productive. You get stuck in the loop. And then afterwards you've listened to loop so much that you're fed up with it. Cause without a storyline the loop does seem to sound like nothing. Then I move on and start over. Arou
  10. Thanks for the offer Veracohr - but that would be too much P.T. - don't have any accounts on the web @ the moment to upload it to. Djuna: I guess you are right. Think it has something to do with the acoustics - the reflections playing with my ears. So in a way I can assume that if the track sounds good in the sweet spot then it sound great elsewhere. Haven't tested it on other systems yet. I am using Yamaha HS7 monitors so I'll just finish the track and take it from there. Cheers guys
  11. Lately I have realized something that I would just like to get a second opinion on. Been working on a minimal loop that just kicks ass, the quality is rich, flow is spot-on, everything just vibes correctly. In the sweet spot it sounds great - or when I put my ear real close to the speaker, but the moment I move back - or stand up and walk around, the frequencies kind of change. At first I thought it's the room harmonics, but previewing a reference track and do the same walk about, all the frequencies stays the same. As if while walking around the sound stays in the same place in the air.
  12. Agree with you on apple - also a PC guy, however they're coming out with some amazing technology these days. Review Macs vs PC for Music production and you will be surprised how much a Mac is optimized for that sort of thing. I would also agree with many that Apple is the future, but for me it's just too much of a change to switch over. (lazy) I don't like that its kind of a selfish technology, not being compatible with other teq devices. C'mon guys - was it designed for another better species of humans. But yeah - kind of a natural selection - climbing the ladder of success type de
