All-Fanu Mix Volume 9 (download)

Here’s All-Fanu Mix Volume 9.

If you’re new to these: I do these every few years once I have enough relevant material that goes nicely together in a mix.
This one touches deep jungle / D&B vibes, frantic breakbeat works similar to those that earned my stripes in the dnb scene many years ago as well as explores some ethereal bassy downbeat vibes and halftempo bass music influences.
All this material has been released on my label Lightless Recordings.
There’s a lot new music in the release pipeline.

You can find most of my released music (all of these tracks for example) at www.fanu.bandcamp.com and Spotify and other major digital platforms.
I’d still love to play these kind of vibes a DJ (or do a live set), so booking enquiries should go to fanu@fanumusic.com

808 bass with Ableton Live

I wanted to do this video because every now and then I’m seeing producers ask what synth to buy to do 808 style bass.

The truth is, you don’t really need to buy any synth to do that, as your DAW probably has one already. And it’s really quick, too.

Using Ableton Live Analog synth + some of its saturation tools to do it here.

[VIDEO] Pro Tools vs Ableton Live for mixing

I recently switched back to Pro Tools for mixing.
I used to use it for a while, then go back to Ableton Live due to some changes in Live, but I’m back in the PT land.
This video is about why I’m doing it.
I want to emphasize: this is only for mixing. I’d never suggest PT for making music, as Ableton Live excels at that.
I’m still also doing all my mastering-only projects in Live, for which it works well.

See the video info field for a full list of things where I feel PT takes the cake compared to Ableton Live.
