twinky the kid

twinky needs your help musicians...

Recommended Posts

so yeah,

 

ever since i started playing music, which was about eight grade, ive wanted to actually make my own music and such, ive been in a few shitty grind and punk bands but ive really always been fascinated by electronic music and how its made.

 

but ive never been able to grasp the concept of how to go about getting into it.

 

so i know a few of you on here dabble in this field and was hoping you could give me some advice on how to get the ball rolling.

 

if you know any good websites for beginners, that would help alot too because all the website ive seen are still a little to advanced for me to understand.

 

i guess i should give you guys a sample of what kind of music im into and what id like to create.

 

so heres a few bands who have a sound i really like, do me a favor and refrain from telling me how gay you think these bands are, and how im a TPWF hipster.

crystal castles

 

ladytron

 

so those are a few of the sounds i would like to get involved with,

as of now, ive been fucking around with my bass, making little songs and beats.

 

im hoping i can get some decent advice on what instruments would be good for a beinner and what i need to learn in advance.

 

thanks.

Reason 4 and a midi keyboard and piano lessons.

 

this works for my friend. i'm always tryna tell him we should sell out and make commercial electro-hop music and get heaps of gigs and make bank and fuck club sluts but he's about as all about 'bringing 93 back'

all you need to make sounds like those inlfuences you listed is to download a crack version of Reason along with the multitude of free downloads for patches, and purchase a microkorg for a midi controller. The microkorg is also dope on its own, plenty of ladytron/crystal castles sounding patches.

 

Those artists make really basic tracks, you can just get a few drum kits together on reason's redrum feature and keep most of it to 4/4 timing. I would recommend using the commodore drum patches, they're free and they sound like electro/8-bit/whatever you want to call it.

 

by using a "new order" kick drum, some clicky hi-hats, maybe a NIN sounding valve-y snare, you make a "drum skeleton" of beats first on a timeline, then just lay the computer sounding tones over it by pressing keys and counting out 4's and then add robot voice lyrics. Keep the drum sounds as tight and non-reverb sounding as possible.

 

and thats an electro song.

Oh, and it has to be a concept album.

Something about your metamorphisis from kid to man and its correlation with the decline of Amazonian forests.

 

People dont fuck with just plain normal albums anymore.
