Hey Jamie ive not seen any vids from you in a while and i was wondering if you might be able to do some sorta tutorial on Trance Arp melodies.
I get the basics of it like taking a chord progression and splitting it up into notes but like if you check youtube, all you get is kids in FLstudio making really cheesy dance type melodies and not really the melodies you get in modern trance.
I just thought this may be an interesting idea to explore because a lot of people in trance continue to make melodies like this and someone also told me its pretty easy once you know what your doing.,
Just an idea mind you, i can understand if you have no interest or your busy etc but i think a lot of people will benefit from it.
That is pretty close to what I’m doing, Gav, but it doesn’t involve tutorials.
For those who care, I’m trying to practice the extraction of as many unnecessary elements from my rough-draft tracks to arrive at more bare-bones type musical groove. See, the problem I have is that I always think there isn’t enough in my tunes to support 6-7 minutes of interest, so I’ve been trying to devise different methods of breaking up the bar to make percussion and one-shot hits interesting, but not excessive. A couple of tunes I sent to ICN are now being drastically scaled back to eliminate the superfluous nonsense that doesn’t need to be there. I’m hoping my experiment works.
For Jan: I really don’t have the time right now to make a tutorial on trance melodies, but here’s a bone I can throw you for further study and research, which is probably the concept I would pursue in making the videos: Klangfarbenmelodie.
Find out what that is, and see if you can creatively use that technique in your trance melodies. It might provide that little difference and spark you’re looking for.
[quote]jjdejong0 (24/09/2011)[hr]No probs Jamie I just thought i could spark up some ideas, also why are you trolls pestering Jamie for Techno tutorials? This whole site is filled with the stuff…
Also ICN, I think you can be expecting a few aliens coming for you soon to escort you to the intergalactic award ceremony. You have been nominated for the biggest douche in the universe award! GL mate :)[/quote]
Show me the Techno and I might cough up some money… I haven’t seen any here so far.
