  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: Hi @richardyot - I might have misunderstood, but with external midi tracks you set the midi destination for an external midi track here: That's what I was missing! Thanks. I didn't realise you had to tap on the p…
  • I’ve just tried to do something much simpler: drive Animoog using NS2’s External MIDI Track and no dice. The problem is that NS2 doesn’t advertise its virtual MIDI port, which makes setting this up impossible. So how exactly does one use the Exte…
  • You don't need to save your kit as a preset, just use the hamburger menu to copy and paste the entire kit from one Slate instance to another. It's super-quick.
  • Create your master slate track and record all your MID drums there. Then create several new Slate tracks, one for your kick, one for your snare, one for your hihats etc... Use the MIDI send function in your mixer to send the MIDI from the mast…

  • 1 star review because the app doesn't have Link Start/Stop? You might need to take a chill pill.
  • Yeah that's a high energy and at times brutal sounding track 😎 Nice drum programming, I particularly like the interaction between the drums and the tasty bass.
  • @Cray23 said: @richardyot this is superb, in my opinion this is your best song:) really like that instrumental. Big up! Thanks very much for the listen and the feedback 👍
  • That is one beautifully growly bass right there. I wonder of the app version of Model D would be able to pull off that sound, in the YT comparisons I've seen the one thing the hardware still does way better is the distortion when the mixer is overdr…
  • @Cray23 said: @richardyot very coherent sounding album, your very sound, my favourite is We living in silent times but all of them had that signature sound of yours. Will check your other albums you have there later on today as I have some free t…
  • It's not an effect - it's an instrument. You need to load it as an instrument. Create a new track by long-pressing on the + button in the song view, then make a new AUv3 instrument track and you can then assign Bassalicious as the instrument.
  • I think there's an interesting balance to be had between clarity and what some people call "glue" as well. A mix that is too clean and clear can sound sterile, and I think that's why the sound of tape is still popular - it is audibly less clear than…
  • @dendy said: generally you should put sharp (at least 36dB) hipass filter on everything around 140-160hz, or even higher.. which is not kick or bass .. ideally not exactly same frequency on all tracks of course, because every filter has little "b…
  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: Very cool! You've done well, and great to see collaboration here I'd like to hear that guitar up a little more as well. It just seems to be hiding at the moment. I'd also try EQing to have a little less ba…
  • @peanut_gallery said: Side note: Just a few weeks ago I got a LEGO kit for D.VA (that LEGO was now doing Overwatch caught me totally by surprise), and the mech now watches over me as I'm working on music. My kids are jealous!
  • @dendy said: sidechain is magic .. there are genres where it's use is more obvious (like you mentioned EDM), but it is very useable basically everywhere - sometimes you just need to make it more subtle, not so obvious on first look .. bud sidecha…
  • @dendy thanks again for your tips, I've made a new mix where I use the kick as a sidechain to duck the bass (I found that just compressing the bass rather than the whole music group was enough actually). https://www.dropbox.com/s/nrms4w7ybj3lmqa/…
  • The mech in the graphic is D.VA from Overwatch, a game that I've spent many fun hours playing with my kids You've definitely nailed the happy poppy vibe with this one, it's positively bursting with it. I think I agree that the piano could come d…
  • Funky track with a very raw and aggressive drum sound, gives the whole thing a real edge.
  • Love that bass!

  • @Cray23 said: @richardyot I am not here to comment much on mixing, I’m not good at it I think:) but this piece of yours I like probably most so far, that moogish bass is that obsidian? and that updated version sounds quite good to me. Nice work …
  • @Arpseechord said: @richardyot said: Thanks for the feedback, I've tweaked the mix by reducing and high-passing the drum reverb, and I've also dialled down the bus compression ratio to 1.4 to 1, so hopefully the drums will be crispe…
  • @dendy thanks very much for this, I will take it all back to Auria and experiment with your suggestions. I have the tracks grouped in Auria so I can do the sidechaining there without it affecting the vocals which are in their own groups.
  • @dendy said: what do you think about this ? did small master (a bit of EQ-ing and sidechain compression big kick) https://www.dropbox.com/s/6prbfjxn4wxk2hx/richardyot_master.wav?dl=0 Wow - thanks for taking the time to do this! The…

  • @dendy said: i would remove reverb from drums... or at least i would put it just very short, almost unoticeable, just adding some presence to drums. Now it is making drums too much airy, they feel like they do not belomg to rest of track... or, a…
  • @Arpseechord said: Cool song Richard! I’ve given it a thorough listen and just a few of my cents advice I’d like to hear the drums have that biting quality it has at the beginning of the song to continue throughout, I find it gets a little …
  • Not easily at this point in time. Audio tracks are coming and then it should be possible. No ETA though.
