Yo, I've never started a thread in my life.. I'm not an outspoken person in general but fancied discussing some techniques.
I used to make beats/music a while a go like 7 years..So I'm a bit rusty Recently been getting back in to it and STBB has always proved a good way for me to finish shit as it has a weekly deadline. Just on a journey to lean and develop..
In particular I was curious to know if anyone had any solutions or techniques to a stumbling point I've been hitting sometimes..
I got a free trial for Logic X pro for 90 days - can't believe it's running out in 6 days or some shit I use an old Maschine as my primary sampler. I've managed to get Machine 2 software on an old Maschine 1 (This problem isn't just for Maschine users just thought I'd share what I use for context)
As I'm sure we all do - I like to fuck with pitch. Instead of using group I do it one the sound now as the group pitch saves and your root pitch or 0 moves when you pitch up and gets confusing. ANYWAYS - When I change the relative pitch of something lets say by like -7 does anyone have any techniques for then getting other samples or even VST/Synths to then match that new pitch? Or even if you are working with found sounds/foley/birds and shit - getting them in key with your other elements.
So I've tried to use Melodyne but it's kinda tech and my musical theory is BASIC..
Or Using the freq analyzer on your EQ plug, soloing a respective band and matching that - basically trying to use fundamental frequencies to match key/pitch
I get lucky most of the time by just using my ears.. But I wonder if anyone has a more methodical approach or some technique in lock?
Also one last thing.. For any Maschine users out there - Is there a way of globally affecting your sampler so that when you play your sample on a higher or lower note it doesn't affect the speed in which it is played back in? I've researched some ways but have only found some long ass way you have to do on each sound. Is there any way you can do it globally like the way Iris 2 does?
I use my Maschine to output in midi as I find working within maschine really claustrophobic - I output midi notes in logic so I can fine tune - then either record the maschine groups output or just bounce in place and repeat the process. Just wondering how y'all are sampling/resampling and arranging..
Cools. Looking forward to a constructive discussion and sharing of ideas/techniques. I hope my incoherent rambling makes some kinda sense to peeps..
Safe you lot. Speak soon
