    hmm, I'll try to help clarify some things. First, as Berni said, "808" refers to the vintage drum machine by Roland. Regardless of what version of Live you have, you should have 808 drum samples. So when people say they love the sound of 808s, they're referring to the drums (Kick, snare, clap, hi hats, crash, ride, conga, bongo, cow bell, etc etc). The 808 Kick Drum is defined by its clicky attack and long sub bass tale. A lot of tracks that feature 808s will use: a.) 808 samples b.) sub heavy bass lines. Sub Bass is created by using a basic sine wave in the sub bass frequencies (20hz to 60hz roughly). Every synth is more than capable of playing a sine wave (so you're fine using Operator or any other synth for that matter). So the best way I can answer your question is to layer an 808 Kick drum with sub bass (you may also want to compress the two of them together). After you do this most basic step, you can then analyze your sound and pick out what you like or don't like and go from there.

    Thanks brotha! This is my mastering job for the preview.... I'm pretty inconsistent with the masters so maybe that's it hahaha! But for the actual release they'll be doing a full analog master.

    here's a brief description of the pack:
    "The Sample Pack ranges from Neuro basses, squelchy tones, and mysterious Foley textures. All these sounds were created during different sound design sessions and have their own “story” but in some way, but they share the same attention to detail and complexity that drives me to explore deeper into the magic world of sounds."
    This is the content you will have in your hands with this free download: 24 claps/snares hits, 6 percussion hits, 17 drum loops, 5 long texture clips, 5 atmos clips, 18 bass hits, 38 fx hits---

Why Producing In-The-Box May Be Holding You Back

Being able to make a fully-fledged song on nothing more than a consumer laptop and a decent pair of headphones is a truly amazing representation of how technology has progressed over the last two decades.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier. The immense joy of musical creation is no longer a luxury reserved for those with money. Instead, it’s readily available for any person willing to dedicate the time and patience.

But this advancement and opportunity comes with a few caveats, one of which is that the music creation process in the eyes of a bedroom producer has been flipped upside down, chopped-up, and compressed into one holistic task.

Is this a bad thing? No. Not at first look, at least. Every producer has a different workflow, and in my opinion, anyone who stays in the game long enough climbs out of the ruts and moves past difficulties in that area. 

Despite this, there is a problem that many developing bedroom producers encounter. The problem of frustration: not being able to finish tracks, taking too long to finish them, or trying to grasp at the enjoyment that you once felt when creating music. This sense of frustration generally has more than one cause, and this article probably won’t fix it, but it may help some of you.
