Not necessarily me, but any user on the forum including yourself.

So I know a few people write/record tutorials and other production related content. Then of course, there are users that have a ridiculous amount of knowledge about a specific area, or are crazy talented, maybe have professional creative careers, and so on.

To give you a few examples of a few (possibly dry and rather boring) topics I'd like to write about myself:
Project organisation and workflow.
Digital Asset Management.
Preparing for distribution.
To give you a few examples of things I'd like other users to write about:

Relic: On effective note taking/documentation and development of concepts and ideas.

Evelon: An instruction manual, complete with Ikea style drawings for [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
.

Muse-ic: How to teach and learn. And also being creative (because I know you're into that)

Benwaa: On running a label, and a brief guide to mastering.
So I'm not suggesting that these users actually write anything, but I would be interested in reading and I would be interested which knowledge or experience you value in other users. This thread may die in a week but it would be good to hear from cunts.

Second this. Would love someone to write about this. Always been torn as to whether I should write things down or keep them in my head. There's something really nice about not putting things to paper, but instead letting them develop in your head subconsciously.

I've been thinking of writing a piece about the importance of doing everything yourself in a production, i.e. not relying on synth patches / loops / midi files. I think it's a very blurry line and I'm never really sure where to draw it for my own work.

Ah, I remember this, still. I have two days off and I'll try to write/document something interesting. No promise on the IKEA thingy though.

edit: I'd like to read some Digital Asset Management, whatever that might be.

Basic electronics for electronic musicians.

I'd like to publish a book of short interviews with musicians about playing live and touring, their first impressions and then a recap when they reach 50/100 shows or whatever and see if/how their feelings on the situation have changed and how their relationship with band members and crew evolves over time.

I think this is a great topic. But as you've phrased it here it would be difficult to write about as it could prove divisive.

For example, a lot of people (myself included) don't agree that it's important to always do everything yourself. A more constructive way to approach this topic would be to write about something that you're confident doing for yourself and outline the process. Or if you wanted to write about this more broadly write about the blurriness of the line you perceive in your work and how it informs your approach to things.

Instead of saying that it's important to do everything yourself, maybe say that there are benefits of doing things for yourself. That way, you're validating the feelings of those who do it themselves, and interesting those that don't.

Like imagine if you knew nothing about production and you saw a headline that read "Why it's so important to do everything yourself." The feelings that would conjure in a n00b would be doubt and/or intimidation and similarly negative feelings. It would also encourage the "pros" in the audience to stoke the n00b's fears by agreeing with the headline. Whereas, if you started with a topic like "Why doing it yourself is so rewarding" or something more optimistic, straight away you get a better article.

and [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
. So documenting your work is part of it. But then there's things like automation. Whether it's OS automation or self automation: where you develop habits for automating your actions when beginning a specific task. Then you take steps to aid those tasks.

A good example from my own practice would be templates. I have all kinds of templates for use with various projects. Whether it's document templates for documenting recordings in the field, or project templates for specific kinds of projects I work on. I also have different folder templates complete with standard documents. For example I have an archive called client.zip which unpacks to a folder called client and contains pro-forma documents for briefs, contracts, invoicing etc, along with project folders, post-production and master assets.

When I do certain tasks now, I automatically start with whatever template or package I've created for it. Then if it's a task that doesn't have a template or process to start with, I'll document the steps I'm taking. If I end up doing a similar task again, then the first task is to go about templating the last project and archiving it...

So yeah, I'd like to write some stuff about this because there isn't much interesting out there, and it's so important.

I think it would be really interesting and there isn't much written about it from the perspective of solo, uneducated electronic musicians. Especially because commerce and club culture is so dominant of the art form now... which doesn't really place any value in creative self expression. Just look at all of the cunts at Burning Man, Rainbow Serpent and all of these other monocultures. Zero individuality, zero self-identity, let alone meaning.

But I think that there's a lot things that electronic musicians have to say beyond, "Hey Brah check out my fat beats." And I am more than sure that the kinds of practices that help writers keep track of their ideas and concepts and develop them into products has to benefit electronic musicians in some way.

Heh, I think if I wrote an article about compression it would be incomprehensible. Mainly because every conversation about compression always devolves in to obscene words like fatten, pump, glue, parallel compression (yes, I said it) and the like. Not because there's anything wrong with these things, it's just that none of these are really talking about dynamics processing. Well they are, if the process is to steamroll everything within an inch of its life.

But I don't like using compression to steamroll shit. That's what saturation is for. To me compressors are like guiding hands softly ushering sound to the speakers. But it's kind of hard to articulate what that means

I reckon anything like this is great. Especially if it's on the more technical side. i.e. Gear, relationships and "stagecraft" or whatever you want to call the act of being on stage. I think what's really frustrating with all of the press regarding live work is that it's either a journalist asking generic questions and listing their gear, or it's purely focussed on the hype machine and isn't really about their live work at all.

I wanted to do something similar to this looking at studios and approaches to creative process. The think I found the most challenging with the idea was the best way to present it. So as much as journalists suck at documenting these kinds of things, it's also a challenge to get the format right.

I think it would be awesome to have an indexed thread with the titles in the OP- maybe for this thread mods could keep it locked and just sticky it or something so it doesn't blow up with BS.

Very cool idea Jade. I can think of thousands of ideas for you, Evelon, RFJ, lolirl, Fid, Ben Steed, Benwaa, relic, Numerical, (Everyone I missed), to write about.

The reason why I brought up advanced compression techniques is because I too typically only use compression to "softly usher the sound to the speakers" as you say. I remember one time, shortly after you made your return here last summer I believe it was, there was this rather large compression discussion going on. I remember you mentioned something to the effect of...

If you dont know how to squeeze a snare until it spooges all over the audiences ears then....

I don't remember what you said after that to be honest. Probably something some 30 count poster took very personally and never returned But ever since then I've always wondered exactly what you meant by that and was hoping to have my question indirectly answered if you ever wrote the article.

Funny how certain things have a way of sticking with someone.

Re: If you could ask me to write an article about anything, what would it be?

Since I haven't had that much time, here's a short version:

How to fuck up a cheap spring reverb


The first time I heard a spring reverb (AKA reverb tank) was when I was about 4 years old and my guitar playing dad moved/relocated his Fender Twin Reverb amp in the basement of our house. The amp was on, but silent. When he lifted it and then put it down it went "Baaoooowoowoiwwwiissh". It was a strange sound that I'd never heard before, so it kinda freaked me out. I asked
-"Dad, what was that?".
-"That was a spring reverb.", he said with a calm voice and continued to show and explain to me what it was I'd just heard (probably to calm me down, since I was a bit scared).

The spring reverb was a cheap/small way to emulate the echo chambers and oil tank reverbs of the 40's (where they set up a speaker in one end, and a mic at the other end of an empty oil tank).

Over the years I heard that characteristic reverb on many recordings, mostly from the 50's. But it wasn't until I was 19 years old that I again heard that sound IRL, now in my band's rehearsal room. Our guitarist Mike had just bought a Fender amp. The sound brought me back to my childhood. This time I explained to Mike how it worked.

Construction

The spring reverb is a very simple device, with a metal spring (or two or three) connected between an input transducer and an output transducer. The transducers basically converts movement to electric current, so current->movement->current. The thing that is moving is the spring. If you move/kick/slap/play the spring reverb, the output transducer picks those movements up and converts them to electric current and we can hear it.
That was what happened when dad/Mike moved or kicked the amp.

If you intend to "play" the spring reverb with your fingers and/or with other objects, you don't even have to plug any audio source into the input transducer.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


Since a spring reverb is so simple in construction and doesn't have many components, it's cheap. You can basically pick one up for pennies or for free. A friend gave me one (since he didn't use it and couldn't sell it). I ripped another spring reverb out of an old busted up electric organ that was going to the junkyard. Ebay has Accutronics reverbs (same one used in Fender amps) for 25 bucks/23 Euros, all ready to be plugged and played.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
.

Since the spring reverb now becomes an instrument like a guitar or synth, you just need one cable to connect your reverb output into your preamp/audio interface. Fun starts when you play it and later chop it up and add effects to it:


The possibilities are endless. You can make oneshot samples and build a track from that, make Aphex Twin-like glitch/morphed sounds like I did...or add a TON of long reverbs ITB and make ambient soundscapes (by just gently scraping the spring, or going crazy with it).
Let your imagination run free.

Or you can run sounds/samples/synths/instruments through it, but that has been done many times before.
