As a drummer myself I totally agree with you. That is to say a) when actually drumming it is easier, and easier on your arms;

and b) when programming it just feels more natural.

Saying that, I have tea-leafed a break off of some nonsense 60's rock thing, and it sounds right at 175bpm, so I suppose I am not going to just get stuck in one tempo range just cos 'it's the rules'. :P Grin

Just heard the new(ish) Bizzy B on Planet Mu, and rather liked the way he kicked off one track with the bassline - more o' that please gents!

Reincarnations doesn't start with the bassline, it has a short intro bit, then the drums and bass kick in together - which is highly nice.

'It's been a long time, but I still can remember some things that we used to do'.

The do is on the one, I remember that from my mixing days Cool

Die should try thinking that himself - but I bet he has forgotten the things he used to do.......

Incorrect!

You're thinking of the remix - which isn't even half as good as the original!

Doing it right now - 160 bpm, amen and that pingy break that Photek used, 808 bass Grin - and crazy arranging a gwarn.

The old 'cut the beat you have into bits an odd number of beats long, then move them all around with some sort of logic behind it to make loads of edits for no effort' method is being used. Liberation baby!

It sounds old skool already..... Now where's my fifth string sample...........

Not my fault!! I've tried to return each time! I think Macc freaked out when he heard about arranging stuff around something other than the drums - hence the distractions... Lol

I'M SOO SOOORRRRYYYYYY!!!!!!!

The thing is, and this is a reason why this thread would always be 8000 pages long, arranging is such a wide-scale and hugely variable thing, unlike, say, limiting or something, it is far more difficult to say 'do it this way or that way'...

What I am getting at is that it is far less quantifiable, and almost infinitely open-ended.

Unless you just arrange around the drums. Grin


Basically I am saying that the 3 page deviation is of little consequence, so fuck off :P

Is it though? Not in any d+b I've heard in the last few years...

Quote:unlike, say, limiting or something, it is far more difficult to say 'do it this way or that way'...

Well I wasn't really looking for anyone to say: do it THIS way or THAT way.. maybe just to swap a few ideas or theories..?

Listen to most d+b. It actually isn't!
