Everything depends on the way you're using whatever you got.For me the perfect combo is Ableton - Cubase - Max/MSP - Reaktor - SoundForge but, to be honest,the only program without any limits is Max/MSP.Any kind of sound processing,slicing etc,any plugin - it can all be built in Max."Learning" Max is a difficult process,but is worth it without a doubt.Do it and you'll be richly rewarded.

Man could you explain to me in lamens terms how to lay down a decent track with Cubase. The manual might as well have been in chinese because I only understood some of it, and started to make a track and just lost interest in 5 secs because I couldnt get anything to sound right beat wise. quality is there though!



Everything depend on the way you work, but that's what I find in Cubase the most useful: I can do just about anything without having to use any additional software like audio editors or recycle.

To get the basics right u might want to try these:
Cubase tutorial 1
Cubase tutorial 2
DOA Cubase beats tutorial

If u got any questions, PM me or just use my email, I'm willing to help but it's not easy writing about cubase when you have to get back to work at 11 o'clock Crying

In my opinion,u just can't beat a combo made out of uTonic 2, Waldorff Attack and Battery 2 or Kontakt 2 for sampling.To my knowledge, there isn't anything like the thing you mentioned in Ableton Live.Once you get the hits ready, from that point everything is about eq,compression and processing to your taste.

I always take a snare with less punch than the main one,but with lots of presence,compress the shit out of it,tiny amount of reverb,eq it and it works Big Grin And of course you can't forget about the volume, I tend to turn it down to about a half of the level of the main snare.

The low cut also depends on the break,u just have to check how deep the kick goes - it's only about leaving frequency space for the subs.Sometimes applying a low cut at anything below 80 Hz will do if it doesn't alternate the sound of the kick.I tend to stick between 30 -60Hz if I'm using a simple sine sub.

RE: Compression Techniques 03-08-2006 17:47 Forum: Production questions & answers


If u want to use compression on a whole break,the magic word is MODERATION and don't use multiband compression unless you really know what u r doing.
Anyway,that's how I'm doing it.Crank up the ratio and turn release and attack all the way down.Set the treshold utill it starts to kick in.Once I got the level of threshold right I turn the ratio down to something more reasonable (3:1 seems to be right on most of the breaks I'm using) and finetune the attack and release.I only allow the snare to go into the red,but in a way that it's not muddying the rest of the break.Apply a cut at 30Hz and another one at about 12-15kHz (depending on the break) and you're ready to go Drummer
