    Hey Feyra :)

    Thanks for taking a listen. The had a saw pad and then a gated pad. The saw pad ends before the leads come back in. Maybe it was the gated pad? I'll have to take another listen.

    Yeah I am trying to figure out EDM structure for arrangement. Basically want to be faster at arranging a track after getting the idea down. Most of the tutorials out there are pretty well into dance territory. So I went with a standard trance feel for this one. Was fun and the track came together pretty fast. Anyway good to hear from you again. :cheer:

    Hey Fork! Better late than never, right?

    This sounds more mainstream than your usual Trance pieces. Great work, I like it a lot.
    I hear the bass layers going on there. I thought the saw bass (pad) was getting in the way of some of the leads but I could still hear everything. Definitely more EDM!

    I like that Replika too! Good thing we got it when the getting was good.

    Yeah man Good sounding stuff. I like the chilled piano interjected throughout. You really do a good job with the monster basses. They're still slightly overpowering in my opinion but I've also recently found out that my basses need more bass according to most people lol. So yeah what do I know. Anyway. Great job on the remix.

    It really depends on the situation. Ableton devices are very capable of mastering. In fact there have been several paid tutorial sets based on this and using only ableton and M4L devices. I myself find that ableton's devices are good when I'm needing to make broad strokes to get things close but I prefer other tools that have better feedback for the finer movements. it's not to say it can't be done. It's just the way I do it. There are definitely tools that make the process easier. Ableton's MB compression confuses the heck out of me so I don't even touch that one lol. :ohmy:

    To be honest you may not even want to bother doing your changes in mastering. Too often I think mastering is looked at as the place to resolve all issues but it's simply not. 80% of the time the issue should be fixed in the mix (at least in my opinion). You end up with a much better result and you'll save yourself a ton of time if you don't get stuck in "I'll fix it in the mastering stage".

    For my part I do like izotope Alloy and Ozone as mixing and mastering tools but I also have to be honest and say I think Fabfilter is going to become my favorite for mixing and mastering utilities. Good visual feedback along with great workflows.

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.
