    Production In The Studio: Should You Get Rid Of Your Stuff?

    I've had this problem for years. I think gear comes and goes as your musical tastes grows or changes. I personally like outboard gear. Only because I can pick it up and take it with me anywhere.

    Changed from VST to real Bassguitar

    I picked up the bass back in 2004 and I'm still learning more and more. I'm old school so I had to learn from books and people teaching me. Taking lessons is a great way to start off. The amount of practice you put into it will be paid back in full with your skills. Basic theory and technique is...

    Lyric-Recording CEntrance MixerFace R4

    I would say just use your phone. If you don't want to carry extra hardware around and if you aren't trying to record full mixes.

    Tutorials How to Make Beats - Part 7: Creating a Bassline

    One of the main reasons why I picked up a bass is because of hip hop beats. It can get boring and frustrating at times, but trying different techniques and formulas have always helped me. The best guide I have ever used is the circle of 5ths.

    Hardware Synths

    I play guitar and bass so having something physical in front of me is essential. Although playing virtual synthesizers that have a physical box is the same thing as playing software, I do enjoy tweaking knobs and keys. Analog gear is what I really like to use. Not because it's popular or there...

    Interviews Hardboiled Talks About His Passion for Music

    I really admire this guys approach. Creating music from nothing isn't easy at all. Every time I tell someone I'm in a band, the first thing they ask is, "what do you sing?". Like vocals are the only aspect that revolves around music lol. From the drums to the synths it's all hard work. I don't...

    How do you make your bassline?

    I gotta try that. Using the drum parts in the bass sections. Also I read up on tuning the drums to the same key as everything else. Tried that with my yamaha MR10 and a acoustic guitar. Brings an interesting light.

    The drum gates in the back, do they work as drum triggers? I'm wondering because I have a analog drum module that only takes 1/4 in.

    In no way am I a purist to either side, but I've been collecting more hardware within the past year. I look at software and it comes and goes really quick. I get notifications everyday to update something lol.

    How do you make your bassline?

    I pick up my bass and jam lol. That's the first thing I go for, however I use a program called tux guitar. It's a tabbing program, I'll write out my bassline in a tab format then convert it to midi. Then play around sounds from there.
