    Anyone? I have tried also using Collision lately for the same purpose. Some interesting results but not quite there either.

    Nice work man, i subbed on the back of the unedited video.

    I personally prefer watching unedited tutorials like this because i like to see how your deal with small problems you run into while trying to teach us something, as we would most likely run into those issues ourselves, these little problems would often look like mistakes and often get edited out of the final video but really these little issues are often what i have problems with personally.

    I watched your other videos and will defo watch more, though its not my genre of music you still learn a lot of tips and tricks which is why i rate Toms tutorials so highly.

    Nice work. :)

    BTW, just wanted to add that I did a video on the 'in between' step .. before you go from session to arrange:

    be warned, its like almost an hour, unedited, the voice is not well-balanced... I also tend to ramble a bit... and live crashes on me at like 35:00 or something.

    I am trying to figure out if this video is worth posting; its not as high-quality as my other vids, (or as well prepared) but goes through a pretty comprehensive resampling process, showing a lot of plugs, and shows an interesting workflow I'm starting to really love.

    What do you think? Any criticism is welcomed.

    Fork... that's an excellent request. I will do that video next (session => arrange).

    Thanks for the kind words!

    But MAN... is it hard to get your stuff out there. I re-iterate... the internet is a cold, dark place.

    Hey AK,

    Sorry I didn't get to respond to this till now. Life is keeping me busy here. I actually found your youtube page a few weeks ago and subscribed and then I saw you post here. Lots of great tips in there especially for session view. I love working in session view. I'm always looking for ways to improve my workflow going from session to arrange view. I noticed that you have a couple production videos for just producing a track but neither of them cross over from session to arrange view. That seems to be fairly normal for tutorials. It's usually one or the other. Would you be willing to take a special request? I'd like to see you do a track start to finish where you lay out the track in session, record over to arrange, and then finish out there. Interested to see how your workflow differs from mine. Anyway great job on the tracks so far and the videos. I was pleasantly surprised to see your post show up the other day. Had to double take...."Hey I subscribe to that guy's channel".

  • Mr Fork replied to the topic 'Visual Note Feedback for Push?' in the forum.

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to this sooner. There was something wrong with my account which I'm hoping now is fixed. Like dozz was saying chromatic mode will show you all notes in the scale so you will always be able to see which notes are being triggered. There are also a few ways you can trigger a vst using a drum pad but it does require a bit of routing. In the end I found it easier to drop it to audio and slice to a new midi track to sequence. Then they came out with the step sequencer for melodic which was great. Anyway post if you have any other questions.

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.
