How do people make drum kits to sell to others?
How do people make sounds compatible with Kontakt libraries, Sylenth, Nexus, Massive and etc.?
I have basic sampling knowledge (I use audacity) and ive mucked around on Fl studio 9. I know there are heaps of tutorials on youtube but no body really explains why they do things.
I’m looking to pay someone who can upload videos (and has a mic, cheap or expensive doesnt really matter) to youtube, private ofcourse. I’d be looking for atleast 1.5-2 hours worth of video a week, preferably uploaded all on the same day (recorded whenever) and for that I would pay 50-60$. I’m after a teacher, therefore patience is key and will take me a while to learn, don’t just reply if you’re money hungry
I’m 21 and i love hip hop and have a massive vinyl collection from stuff 92-98, I’d want whoever is my "Teacher" to be able to pull off something like this;
"Leaf dog – too right" I mean’t to link it, but it seems I can’t without 5 posts, sorry.
Leaf dog is the bloke who has really inspired me to start, I don’t expect a perfect copy of his music, just that old school feel.. but in 2013!!!
Leave a message in the thread or feel free to PM me
- I don’t mind what program I use, as long as you’re thorough with explanations
- I prefer not to use skype
- Please have a track to show me if you’re interested
- I’d like the person to be knowledgeable enough to sometimes set me homework (I don’t expect this, but it would be cool lol)
Been doing this production stuff for about 10 years working with Ableton Live since ver 6 and Reason since ver 2.5
my main DAW is Ableton Live and I am looking to re-purchase Reason again since I sold it awhile back on the prophead forums. I also legally own a bunch of plugins from D16,UHE,NI, Fxpansion,Accsone, Madrona Labs, and a bunch of freebies I scored off Computer music. I am on a 2011 MBP i7 2.4ghz, 4gb ram and the standard HD that came with it.
Anyways definitely wanna get serious about this. I don’t have much formal music training, so I am signing up again for guitar and piano lessons to help out a bit.
I am learning to freestyle a bit too
Anyways get at me if you wanna chat production
I selected 5 diffrent names but i can’t choose wich is the best

WTF?where the hell is this option?
I’ve been messing with reason 5.0 for a little while now and need some feedback on what I’m doing. If you search Riot187 on soundcloud you should find me. There’s some bits and pieces on there mostly from a while ago.
Don’t know if anybody else found this when starting out, but everything I did first was kinda dark so I’ve been tryna make stuff more melodic with progressions etc. Don’t really knw how tho, so all feedback and advice is more that welcome.
I’ve been listening to Hip Hop since the 80′s and followed the East Coast route for the most part PE, Run DMC, LL, De La, Tribe, LOTUG, Mobb Deep, Wu, Biggie on up through the Rawkus shit til the trail ran pretty much dry. Always been into UK Hip Hop too and the Ninja Tune / Trip Hop scene. Recently big on guys like Kutmah, Gaslamp Killer and that whole Brainfeeder crew. I’m rambling now.
I have done a lot of research but i still want FP’s input in assisting my final decision.

- Roland A-800 Pro
- AKAI mpk 61 (heard bad things about the keys)

As a beginning producer could you guys give me a list of albums that are considered some of the best produced hip hop albums and also some producers to listen to.
If you listen to great music its easier to create great music, or you can listen to shitty music and create shitty music.
Did you expect more? Is it what the world was being waiting for?
In my opinion it is a great album.
Peace & Love.

What I’m looking for is a generalized price for said music. Does it increase as the time increases I.E. 30sec = $100 1min = $240 4min = $500 etc
I would be selling her a license to use my pieces and not any rights of course. Just looking for some advice or guidance on this type of deal.
Some are a bit moody, others quite pacy. I tend to write 120-140bpm usually, and trancy/dancy stuff with loads of string synths and arpeggios
My setup is:
1.Casio CTK-611 connected to FL10 via MIDI-USB cable but only for show / emergency
a bit of a poxy keyboard I know, but it only cost me a fiver spares/repairs, after the previous owner had left it above a radiator.. needed a whole new octave of keys (melted) and a small ‘adjustment’ with a dremel. I use this on a twin stand with :
2. Korg M1 with no connection to PC, just a small audio amp
this is my pride and joy, bought as scrap and completely refurbished by myself with a bunch of new keys and springs, an entire full length contact strip replacement (hours of soldering), and some other odd repair jobs left half finished by the previous owner. Also changed the standard red and green button / LCD backlights for blue ones… looks trick
3. M-Audio keystation 49E connected to FL10 straight over USB
I use this on a desk next to my PC, as my main FL keyboard input. Again a spares/repairs job that just needed the USB socket resoldering
I’ve played keyboards since I was a kid but only ever took a few lessons, I tend to play by ear and have this knack of just being able to translate what Ive heard, into notes on the keyboard.. it just flows. I’m a sparkie by trade and like to refurbish keyboards as a bit of a sideline, sell a few and keep the best ones I come across.
Dammit I cant post my link due to noob restrictions. Hello all anyway

In todays industry, being able to be branded is probably one of the most (if not the most) important qualities a music artist must have. Branding can mean plenty of things such as, the way you carry yourself, the clothes you wear, the lingo you use in your lyrics, etc. Simply put, branding is exploiting your own individualism to its highest degree. The most successful way to implement this into your career is to find the deeper meaning of why you became a music artist. Did you do it to follow a trend or did you do it because you have a story to tell and you want an audience to listen to it? Neither is wrong, but whatever the case may be find out what you offer to that particular lane that differs from everyone else. Your fan base is also included in this area because your brand is ultimately what the listeners see that makes them gravitate towards you. Nowadays album sales do not make as much, so building a brand out of your music offers an endless number of money generating opportunities. Sponsorships, paid appearances, product placements all fall under this category. Once you have identified your brand, next step is to become transparent to the people; that means music videos, promotional videos, promotional ads, reaching out to fans, and blogging. A strong social network presence is key too. You want the perception of your brand to seem bigger than life. One thing I did not mention but is the underlying purpose of all of these things is the fact that you must put out good music.
Now ‘good’ music is an opinion based on a person’s own perception and experiences. In this article it is referred to as professional quality music. That means, a properly mixed and creative instrumental, followed by catchy lyrics and great vocal recordings. It is all about production these days. It is important the artist take his or her career seriously and not half-ass this area. This process pays off in a huge way. It shows people that you are serious about your work. Having a professionally mixed single can be the difference in you getting your music on television and radio. Trick here is to invest in yourself, you will get out what you put in. All the while, you must keep putting out new material to give to your fans in order for your brand to stay relevant. Putting out the material itself is a skill you must acquire and take action on. The skill itself is referred to as marketing.
Effective marketing is your pipeline to success. Marketing your work requires a constant effort of putting your music in places where your fans go to visit. One popular type of marketing tactic for artist is blogging. Blogging is an internet marketing technique which requires the artist to find websites where people that may be interested in their music go to visit. Here on these sites, the artist interacts with the community discussing hot topics and such all the while posting their latest pieces of work. Paying for promotional services is a useful tool as well. Networking falls under this since you as an artist represent a brand wherever you go. You must make yourself visible, known, and carry a strong presence whenever you are out. Essentially you as an independent music artist must take over the role of marketing and slapping your music across everyones faces. The fundamental for you being a successful music artist is simply making music, marketing and promoting it. With proper and effective marketing you can take your music to the next level with album sales, endorsements, shows and selling out venues.
Today the music artist will make most of his or her money going on tours and performing at shows. Selling 50,000 albums alone enables you to go on tour, easily. This is where your brand comes into play. Being able to fill up a concert or venue gives the artist tons of leverage for generating revenue streams. Going on tour is the most lucrative option for an artist. Thats why a key skill the music artist today must have is being able to put on a great show. Whether it be you bringing out goats and chickens, or having a whole bunch of things explode, you have to be able to both rock and entertain a crowd. This in itself is a form of marketing because you have consolidated everyone who is interested in your music to one place, thus you can exploit widening your brand. That includes, after the show is over selling your apparel , your album, singles, and getting them informed about future projects that you want them to take interest in. Fans can be easily deterred for whatever reasons, thats why you must constantly seek out gaining more everyday as well as be giving them something to stay interested in. The biggest thing for the music artist thats looking to maximize on their profits is paying close attention to how well of a performance they give. Everything you do as music artist goes into how you will be perceived by the public.
Making good music and learning how to market is the main recipe for getting your buzz hot. Then you proceed to maximize on that with sales, shows, and appearances all of which generate wealth. Now all of this doesn’t happen overnight, actually it takes a great deal of time, grind, and patience for your music to be where you want it. Throughout the process, things may begin to become overwhelming, you then assign qualified people on your team to handle these situations swiftly and effectively. At your core you are a music artist so booking shows and setting up tour dates may not be your strong point. You are a business, and in that business you hire employees to help alleviate your work. Trick here is to have a powerful qualified squad of people who all have your best interest at heart. Everything you produce should be of the best quality possible. Its not a job, its a career, but its a fun and positive one. See yourself touring the world, making timeless music, and being loved across the globe. Now that you have that picture in your mind you are halfway there. Next step, go out and JUST DO IT!
I’m sure I’ll have a good time here, writing and reviewing music here on the forums.
