Re: How to increase and decrease energy in your tracks - Part 2 (the three P's)

Thanks Zencha. Great article and youtube vids. just subbed. What do you think of the change in energy levels of a song called "Don't Leave (feat. Ellie Goulding" by Seven Lions? The energy transitions up and down, and i feel like the part before the drop loses energy by eliminating lower and mid frequencies. i also noticed that common synth with the cutoff lengthening. Thanks Man!

You've emphasized and focused on something that most people have overlooked when creating music.

Hats off to you sir!!!

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.

Sounds like they might be high-passing things as well as removing the lower frequencies. Generally speaking, bass/low-mid provide a "grounded" feeling to the listener and removing these things can increase tension. This is a good example of that. Figuratively lifts the listener up and drops them!
