Here’s a thought relating to sub bass in bass music – i.e., music where the sub bass usually sits below the kick on the frequency range. This doesn’t apply to genres such as rock or house, for example, for there you may have your kick lower than your bass in general.

Ableton Live lesson text hack

Screen Shot 2015-10-18 at 19.47.44

I figured out how you can edit the Lesson Text fields in Ableton Live. I created an empty project which will hopefully demonstrate to you, too, how it works. Download the Ableton Live lesson text hack project to find out how to do it.

Feel free to share this with other Abletonians, for this is actually a useful feature if you want to share your projects and add a bit of personal info about yourself, write info for a collaborator, do an informative set for a workshop, create a tutorial, etc.

Happy text-hackin’…get crackin’!

Giving something back to the producer community: analog bass samples

In addition to all the producer/DJ/artist/record-label stuff I do as a main hustle, I give electronic music tuition in Helsinki, but also, I give production advice, tips and discuss relevant stuff with the online community as well whenever I have time.
I think we’re all nicely feeding off of each other’s vibes, so here’s something back as a thank-you. Continue reading Giving something back to the producer community: analog bass samples

“Should I make music?”

I addressed a question, ”Should I continue making music” on a music forum, and upon finishing, I thought that the reply, which came out way longer than I initially expected, would make a decent blog post, for it’s been in the back of my mind to blog about that particular topic because, every now and then, I am asked how long I’ve been making music, how long did it take until I started getting songs released – ”Should I quit because I’ve been making music for X years and still haven’t got signed” etc… so here we go.
Should I make music? Should you make music? Let’s find out. Continue reading “Should I make music?”
