i also heard sticking chopsticks in yr monitors increases precision in the beta frequencies (alpha waves stay the same below 100hz)

 

any other hot tips i should know?

Try tilting your head while mixing on headphones, take notice of how it feels. Now try to reproduce that feeling in your track without tilting your head.

 

This is how you make a 100% certified banger every time.

If you don't have at least 20 or 30 of these you might as well just give up producing altogether.

Wear rain boots to avoid mud in the low-mids.

Also, put your .wav on shelves to get that warm analogue sound : varnished maple ones will make the top-end even sweeter.

Compress your drum to .zip to get that huge drum sound, or to .rar if you want more color.

Layer 808 808 kick samples to get that nice, heavy, boomy bass drum. 909 909 samples can also do the trick. 707 707 ones aren't enough though.

All kidding aside, I once had lunch with Mario Davidovsky and he said that everything that could possibly be done with electronic instruments had already been done before 1970, and he only wrote for classical ensembles after that*.

 

 

So that is some true advice from one of the true pioneers of electronic music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*It's worth noting that a quick glance at his Wikipedia page proves that he wasn't being entirely honest about that last part.

just take a track from somebody you never heard of, slow it down a little, then pass it off as your own

send the output of a compressor back into itself with sends so you end up with infinite compression. thats how skrillex gets it sounding so good

Alesis 3630 on every track of every mix for that French touch.

The real pros patch the sidechain insert on the left channel into thesidechain insert on the right channel, but you probably want to work up to that level.

Don't bother mastering or EQ'ing anything. Everyone is just going to listen to your stuff through $10 headphones anyway.

Also that "randomize" button ain't going to press itself...

mgf wave alchemy:

- bat sonar pitched down = xfiles theme synth

 

- dog bark + chorus + reverb = bigger dog

 

- donk + wub × wub = skrullx bass

If it ain't clipping, it ain't clicking

 

 

Also put a donk on it

basically, production isn't production unless you RELEASE your fuckin trax, yo.

problem is, wack releases and the mark of the rank amateur is when all the tracks sound all different, with different levels and shit.

 

kids dont buy that shit. forget it, hang up your dreams to dry cause that plane ain't leaving the tarmack jack.

 

you NEED to do EQ matching by getting the hypest, dopest fresh track from a great producer and do an EQ match for that track, applying it to all the tracks on your album so they sound all the same pro quality.

old jungle tune + obscure classical record + glitch + sped up = aphid twin

 

old jungle tune + badly played bass guitar + glitch + sped up = scwarepusher

 

old jungle tune + quantize it to 7/13 5/4 7/3 or 8/11 = venetian blinds

Strike a match against the eq.

Your tracks will be on fire.

Here's a super seret technique all of the top glitch producer's use:

 

Take about an hour of audio (it doesnt really matter what it is) and burn it on to a CD-R

 

Spraypaint the label side of the CD-R black.

 

Spraypaint the other side of the CD-R with metal flake praypaint. The color you choose has a big effect on the sound you get, so experiment!

 

Rip the audio from the CD-R onto your Macbook Pro.

 

Congratulations, you now have a complete, fully mastered glitch album!

 

WARNING: make sure the paint is dry before you rip the CD, otherwise the audio might get corrupted and infect your hard drive.
