What do you use to make your tracks?


Recommended Posts

Great stuff. I'm considering buying a pair of KRK V6 as I my first (and only)impressions with them were really good. It's hard to say though if this impression is going to last, so please tell me your experience with them

Yeah, so i am really happy with them up to this point. The tracks i mix on them (all of them) seem to sound good on a variety of sound systems of varying quality. I have been told this is a good way to tell how good a pair of monitors are. Before these we were using some old sony monitors and these were a HUGE improvement. Like night and day. When i bought them, i was able to do a side by side comparison with a variety of other brands. IMO they were the best sounding of the ones i listened to. I even listened to some much more expensive monitors (i remember some were event brand) and these seemed superior.

 

Unfortunatly i didnt have any psytrance cds with me at the time so i couldn't do the comparison with psytrance.

 

I hope this helps B)

I just picked up renoise. I previously used Ableton Live 5. I might switch back one Live 6 comes out, but I like renoise because it gives me a lot of control over the track. Also it's easier to compose, you can think of a track in terms of steps.

 

I had a few soft synths, but the only one that can work for psytrance is audiorealism's bassline. I'm in the process of discovering more soft synths that would be suitable for psytrance production.

hiya :D

 

Hard or soft... doesnt really matter in the end as long as it sounds good but here goes anyway

 

Hardware:

 

Virus C

Waldorf micro Q

MOOG Rogue

Yamaha TX81Z

Korg EX-800

Novation Drumstation

TR-707

Roland W-30 12bit sampler (hardly ever use it anymore)

M-Audio Axiom 25

Genelec 8040a

 

Software:

 

FM7

Sytrus

Albino

Minimonsta

Discovery

DX-10

and lots more....

 

I see more and more people mentioning sytrus for leads but try it for bass, it has super saw basses that is very psy friendly :D

 

Anyway over the years i found that its really not up to the instrument you are playing but more the way you play it.

Same thing applies to mixing/production, though i must admit that a pair of precise monitors helps a lot.

 

I'ts all techniques not hard/software so my most valuable tools, besides my ears, are all the tips and methods i picked up over the years...

Software:

- FL Studio 6***

- Acid 4.0

- Reason 3.0

- 3xOsc

- TS404

- Sytrus

- DX10

And a few more useless VST that never get used! :D

 

I produce mainly Goa Trance, but dabble in other genres from time to time.

I totally agree.... I've been hardware for years, but what I have seen with soft as of late blows me away. Put both in the mix and I think there is a killer production studio - boy, I've been missing out.

You know I've been thinking the same thing myself, i want to get some hardware equipment as well because i think the production quality will shoot through the roof!! :)

 

Though I am only 17 and dont have the money for that sort of stuff yet. :(

Thanks a lot, and it doesn't matter too much with the psytrance comparision since it's mostly a secondary part of my music creation. My choice will probably be between KRK V6 II and Genelec 8030A, the price is about the same.

By the way - are your KRKs V or VII?

i use a lot of dsp discovery these days!!!!

and gate fx!!

stopped using the vanguard now, kinda tired of hearing it in every track nowadays!!

i just realized now its better to learn and master a few intruments than having tons on them and end up using only the presets...

Sorry.... =) I guess the better way to put it is you'll have a hell of a lot more money, but as the money continues to grow, so does what you want. =)

I didnt even realize that there were different models of the V series out there. I double checked and i have the KRK V6-II. I dont have any experience with the genelecs so i cant really say anything there ;)

 

Cheers!

So, after re-reading Lost Buddha's @ Jul 30 2006 comment, I thought about something else... All of the Korg 'virtual' analog stuff has been great - the Prophecy, the EA-1, MS2000. You really can't go wrong there.

Hello, what exact use do you make of your MPC? I'm asking because I have always thought about buying one, but goa trance music has so many tracks and instruments played for a single tune that an MPC seems unusable compared to a PC sequencer, don't you think so? You won't have 64 or 128 tracks with an MPC. It seems more suitable for music that makes use of less instruments (e.g. blues, rnb, rock, dance, pop...). Or do you use it only for the sampler of the MPC?
