I am a techno producer (I already signed/released 15 - 20 tracks on several label), also working for some electronic labels, and I am really used to work with Ableton (No problem with the rythmics, gimmicks, constructions, …) but, as i didn’t make any musical studies, I sometimes have some problems with the melodical part !
I would like to get a funky techno synth sound, as Joey Beltram’s, or (if you want a more concrete and recent exemple) Bryan Cox …
Here you go for the example ( @ 2:20 of the track “I Love Money” on PHNTM | Listen and Stream Free Music, Albums, New Releases, Photos, Videos ) ! That’s exactly the sound I would like to get!
I am quite new on this forum but I would like to become a “paying member” and take part of the community, and I really think you guys can help me to go trough this problem!
The track you posted is a 3-4 notes bassline and a sample from a 1/4 beat or 2/4 sample from a disc track the rest of the track is just sequencing and filtering.
I do not think you can create this by sitting down and making a melodie but I could be wrong
thank you for your answer! is anyone able to show me this in an ableton project then ? Would be so helpful!
I think that u can apply the same techniquest to any sequencer.
after u choose ur samples and eq it ( taking most of the bottom end )
u going to create a group track and insert it an autoFilter effect . then automate it .
now every sample should have a different automation to make it sound like that track .
and forgot of course that compress it well would help to make it sound punchier
hopefully that helps
