Re: How to increase and decrease energy in your tracks - Part 2 (the three P's)
Cool article and a good way to look at writing and creating a track that actually goes somewhere. I really wish DAW developers would include this sort of approach in their free tutorials/software demos. I remember first starting and seeing some tutorials Ableton put out, and their way of thinking is just "look how easy you can record a shaker, now it's a loop! Oh, but it sounds a little off, good thing we can time stretch, look now a perfect loop!"
Lead me to believe all music was just small groups of loops that happened to work really well with each other...I guess that is technically what music is, but the idea of mixing a lot of different elements (those listed in the article) is how you go from loops containing different but similar ideas, to a song that has it's own idea and entity.
