Post techniques that make you happy. For me, i just learned how to emulate dj turntable scribbling.

Re: What techniques have you excited?

The one thing that I actually do very rarely is convert failed projects, or their individual tracks into audio piles, but every time I do I'm pleasantly surprised at the added things I can offer up to some other project.

Cool drums from one, stuttery stuff I built here, key play from another, etc.

EDIT - Has definitely helped with the brick wall I've been hitting for a while now.

DBL EDIT - Also, duplicating a track because you want to use it in a quieter or louder portion and deleting the opposite portions = simplicity.

Re: What techniques have you excited?

Recently I got excited by a very simple thing, using effects on my Ipad to process audio on my groovebox, then I just resample and layer. Haven't been doing that in a while...

Re: What techniques have you excited?

Using lots of saturation and excitation instead of compressors.. it sounds so much better (for my music), I mix twice as loud (-14 to -11 LUFS easily) and it's a hell of a lot easier and faster.. I feel like I'm actually making music instead of overcoming engineering challenges. Because let's be honest, turning things up always feels better than dialing them down.

This!

I'll also never get over resampling multiple tracks and throwing them into a granular sampler.

Also, just setting up a whole drum rack and triggering a shitload of samples together to resample. It's super simple, but even pitching the whole glob down by a few semitones makes a cool, unique layer of shit to fuck with.

Re: What techniques have you excited?

Edging? :problemofficer:















OK..no, seriously..Reverb. It's one of my main (sad) pastimes..opening up a VST at random and applying a reverb plug on it and seeing where it takes me. I find it a great way to relax and basically noodle with software. Add into the mix a little delay, until you end up with this crazy [Only registered and activated users can see links.

kind of thing going on and wild horses can't drag me away from the computer!

polyrhythms, multi-track-pitch-shifted cv modulated delay lines, downsampling by saving files at shitty bit depth with software like ableton or audiofinder to create low-fi samples or whatever

Finding more interesting ways/parameters to variate a waveform operator over time.

i started working more with samples of all types--this seems to be the truth the light and the way. Also, i am enjoying trying other less known daws.
