Re: I hate sound design


sound design ^


^ dubstep

so the question is, how do you confuse the two? or are you referring to what sound design techniques you need to accomplish dubstep?

Re: I hate sound design

If you hate sound design, maybe you shouldn't y'kno... want to make a type of music that is so sound design-centric? Do you hate sound design, or do you hate the fact that you haven't gotten good at it yet? You gotta lose the attitude either way. Good luck, bc it's not impossible.

I hate Tomoatos but love spaghetti bolognese, such a problem cause I have to pick out the bits of tomato. Stops me from enjoying the meal as much as I could.

Re: I hate sound design

are you sure you want to even make music then?

I would personally suggest not looking at genres or thinking that way and just make some tracks.

if you want sound designing to become easier, you have to put in time and work, I'm no synth master, but I do experiment, create patches from scratch or edit presets to my needs. (usually editing that edit further into something new) As you put in more time and understand how sound and the different kinds of synthesizing works, you will progressively become better. You will not be stuck in the dark with no idea how to get the sound you want, because you already know how to get that sound

its not easy, but nothing worth doing usually is.


if you need help about how to go about this, you can just open a preset on your favorite synth, and start turning the basic controls, like ADSR, pitch, LFO, and etc. maybe change the waveform and see what happens to the sound. dont go for anything particularly, just explore the sounds.

also if you want to build your own user library and kill two birds with one stone, while you do this editing and such, every time you reach a point where you think the current patch sounds interesting/good, just hit save as, and name it whatever you think describes it, in a short matter of time, you will have plenty of sounds to work with and improve and splice more.

you just have to experiment, and avoid falling into loops or pushing yourself into a doldrum by thinking genres or styles.

nah its just annoying to me i hate sitting there turning knobs. but in the end i think i hate massive... ill sit there and fuck with harmor for hours making weird robotic demon voices and shit lol its so much fun idk. i have no paitence. i mean i make cool sounding robotic shit in massive too but i just dont like it as much and then i give up. massive just is so black and white its annoying. im looking into razorthat thing is so cool looking. i love how it has that image show up. i need visually intriquing things or hard workouts for me to be into something.

I'm so sorry I do not care too much about my grammar- is this a little better for you? Secondly dubstep is sick and once u get a cool groove going its a lot of fun to make.

All of these things seem problematic to me.

1. You hate sitting there turning knobs. That is what making electronic music is, plain and simple.

2. You have no patience? You might as well give up making any kind of music then, because this shit ain't easy and it's going to take a long time.

3. A new synth probably isn't the answer to your problems.

4. While I understand and sympathize with your visual fixation. You are working with sound, so your ears are always going to be your best tools. And honestly, the visual part of Razor is pretty much a gimmick--as a Razor user I can tell you I never look at it and it doesn't help me with sound design in the slightest. In fact, I find visual aids in sound tools actually tend make me not rely on my ears...which is what I should be using.

Honestly it really sounds like your biggest problem is your impatience.

yeah nah ur right lol. but i mean idk its hard to explain ud have to know me. i make no sense at all. but when i have something visually stimulating i can sit there and make sounds for hours and not be impaitent. cant forget about the fact that other people are different than u. oh and on the paitence thing. imean ive skated for like 7 years. lol ive always compared music to skating. took me 7 years to get to where i am now so idk i have bad paitence but i have a drive that makes me not want to stop.
