How do I get good at making songs with the computer?

Learn your way around a DAW and practice regularly. Learn what kinds of chord progressions you like and how to mix and EQ properly.


Firstly you'll want to learn a bunch of theory. People say you should avoid theory as much as possible since it stifles the creative process to some degree, but these are the people who write entire albums in one key and that key is based on the note of the lowest string of their guitar. Learn about a thing called chord function. If you put specific chords in specific orders, it'll sound good. This explains it pretty well: https: //www.musictheory.net/lessons/57

A lot of the rest will depend on what type of music you want to play. One thing to keep in mind is that software instruments mostly sound like shit. It would be good to learn to play instruments and get some microphones and a recording interface. If you want to make electronic music then that doesn't matter.

If you're just concerned about writing it, you won't need to learn DAW stuff, but if you want to record it and mix it, let me just say now, it's going to sound amateurish unless you either pay a whole bunch of money and do some kind of university course or if you spend even longer scouring the internet for advice that isn't shit. If you don't want to have to pay someone else to record and mix your music, it's going to sound like it was put together amateurishly, but I doubt you're concerned about that. Again, how you record stuff depends on what kind of music you want to make. If you don't care about software instruments sounding like shit, you can just pirate some software, and there should be guides on the internet. You'll have to learn how to program midi. If you know enough about notes and rhythm, you can use a DAW or guitar tab software to input the notes you want it to play. A lot of this stuff in general depends on what kind of music you want to make so if your OP wasn't vague maybe it'd be easier to give advice. OP's probably not coming back anyway.



Op might have fucked off, but I appreciate it anon.

If you can't separate the art from the artist then you probably shouldn't be listening to music. Almost all your heroes are socialist or progressive.

Have any of you worked at a venue? Maybe like 5% of you have and i’m one of them. So i worked at a small club in LA from 1989 to mid 2004. It was a mainly punk club with a lot of underground bands that disappeared but every once in a while one band would play right before they hit big. I remember hearing that soundgarden played a show right as my shift ended so i heard maybe the first three songs but i have no idea what they were. I did however hear and record full sets from nirvana and green day.

Nirvana i believe played in august of 1990 with the drumer of the melvins i think. I recorded soundcheck and the show. i can’t remember the setlist fully but they played for sure in bloom, love buzz, school, lithium, negative creep, and blew plus at soundcheck they played paper cuts and mexican seafood, kinda as it was more of a jam than the actual song with it turning into a improv solo after the second chorus. my guess is that no one remembered how to play the song fully. I remember making a copy for myself and one for my friend who after kurt’s death asked me for copy so he could go to trading circles and use my tape to get rarer shows. I haven’t listened to the tape in 15 or so years and i can’t find it so i can’t upload it. I thought it was on live nirvana but no one knows that this even happened.

The more interesting item i had was two green day concerts, one from early 94, and the other 04 right before i quit. The 94 concert was right as longview started to appear on the radio but this show had like 100 people when the max capacity was 250 so it really wasn’t that big.They just went on stage, checked that everything was working, then started playing. The setlist was really weird as having a blast, in the end, and pulling teeth were played and this was the only time they played the songs on the tour and wouldn’t til 2013! I might have the cassette with this show somewhere but i probably won’t upload it unless i transfer it.

The last show i recorded was a 2004 show they did before they left for a gig in japan. They played under a pseudonym that i can’t remember but i know that me and the staff knew that green day were playing. This show was werid in that it was just green day with their touring guitarist. The sound check was also strangely long with Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Any plans of maybe releasing some of these through live albums or even deluxe editions?



So did you know about that rehearsal tape that got leaked a few weeks ago?


So anyone hear about those Green Day demos being partially leaked?



Yo if you still come here, did you record any of the underground bands?



I recorded some of the more experimental and odd bands. The only band i remember was one called STD Koolaid. They would just fuck around for a hour or two while playing really retarded songs. They usually would play late at night so i would be on the soundboard recording their shit shows. The last show they played was in 03 so i have no clue where they went afterwords. They might have released an album or two but there's no way anyone outside of the band has a copy.

Just about every person this guy associated himself with ended up dying or living long enough to become his mortal enemy. Dre sacrificed his career getting him off the ground, and rewarded him for what is now 20 years of mainstream relevance. The only person he ever "helped" in his entire career was 50 Cent, and that was achieved by taking Dre's nearly finished Detox album and have him sing over it, and when his successive albums couldn't match, the dupe was up and he faded into obscurity by the end of the decade.

How he didn't die from an OD in the mid '00s is a complete mystery to me. All these years later and there's a severe karma imbalance that ought to be addressed.

Should this stuff be against the rules? Discord spam always seems to get deleted, and this is pretty much the same thing. What do you guys think? Sage for off-topic (yes I know it's at the top of the catalog), and sorry for posting meta outside of the meta thread but nobody pays attention there anymore and this thread will probably get deleted anyways.


but discord mines user info. what about wizardly? honestly sync music and chat would be fun

I can only seem to be able to enjoy music from the previous century, some from the 00s but after that everything sounds so generic and watered down to me, I mean maybe there are som songs here and there that I might find good but I haven't heard anything that actually sticks out, where I think "Wow this song is amazing", I guess drum & bass was the last great genre that mixed a lot of different styles which made it very diverse. Is it just nostalgia? or was music just better in the 19th century?

most importantly, so i'll say it first, even though it would make more sense after the second line, listen to each song with your full attention, do nothing else during that time. make sure you fully listen to it, don't just hear it.

for each of your acquaintances, query them for their favourites, if you like anything, save a copy, including metadata.

for each song you like, query databases for other songs by those artists.

and make sure to track which are your favourites, why they are your favourites.

the reason you have difficulty finding good contemporaneously composed music that is good is not because philistines suddenly, just before we existed, flooded society, but because past crap is disused. society always was, always will be–majorly, at least (we do not exclude the eccentric cases from our view, wherein the masses seemingly spontaneously display a perfectly decent taste or two, but include them as the rare counter-examples serving to underline the average. in all likelihood, such memories disuse the ignorant masses)–full of philistines. our job as cultured men is to maintain the good, and disuse the bad, so posterity can respect this time as we respect that time: the ever progressing golden-age just past. (of course, the annals have recorded all, regardless of future use)



Music production has become easier. Music theory and instrument technique, however, remain as difficult as always.

Thus, musicians have progressively leaned their creative efforts towards the process of creating specific sounds for their songs and recording them, which also creates jobs throughout the whole industry (i. e. hiring engineers, renting overhyped studio houses, manufacturer sponsorships, outsourcing editors, etc.). Performance-wise, they rely on recreating the sounds they've recorded on a live show that summons large audiences instead of using their musicians' crafts to perform an abstract piece of music in the specific mood of the moment.

On the other hand is the old process of writing music focusing on its abstract qualities, it requires concentration, patience, deep analysis, technique, education and most of all, a strike of inspiration.

This old process gives the industry no economic boost whatsoever, since it's mostly spontaneous and recquires the artist(s) to be isolated for long periods of time -wether practicing, playing (not performing) or writing- instead of making public appearances, greeting fans and sponsors, in short, generating revenue.

Musicians with good technique specialize themselves in it so they can be the stars of the freak shows organized by instrument manufacturers and live off their sponsorships, or from being session musicians to shitty artists, therefore rendering their creative muscle completely limp.

>tl;dr capitalism has ruined it for music by rendering potentially good musicians into mere stage performers.

This. If you're listening to surface level music you're going to get surface level enjoyment. Maybe you'll like this.

If you genuinely cannot enjoy new music anymore you're either old, burnt out, not looking hard enough, or maybe all three.

Take a break. When you get back less "music must have a lot of shit going on to be interesting" and more "this song elicits a pleasurable emotional response."



I want the sauce of that pic OP.

I like My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. They never seemed to go mainstream. Their music is Industrial, but instead of having a rock beat under it, it's more of a Disco sound, yet still classifies as Industrial. The Satanic messages are pretty awesome too. TKK is also significant as being one of the first artists to sign to Chicago's iconic Wax Trax label, which pioneered the Industrial sound of the 1990's.

Anyone else have Underrated Industrial Bands to share?

All Industrial bands are overrated though



Howso? This band is a virtual unknown by anyone I talk to


Absolute garbage. OP should be banned from making threads.



The best kind of industrial is the unlistenable shite



Confessions Of A Knife is an absolute classic and the best album to come out of Wax Trax. Never really liked their other albums.

Wasn't aware of Boston 168, good stuff. Thanks OP.


Though a comparatively new genre of music, Techno has a fair bit of history. It pays to know the origin story for a lot of sonic trends, you will be able to understand the references made when Techno-heads are discussing sounds.

First, I reccomend you familiarize yourself with the landscape. It all started with the Belleville Three. Thats right, three black guys created the genre after they got home from class at their local community college. Its true, read it. Yep, another genre invented by African Americans! Im not black, but as a lover of jazz I cant help but acknowledge the accomplishments of blacks who chose to channel their energies into new and experimental frontiers.

After the originators, familiarize yourself with the original labels and the works therein: Metroplex, Plus 8, Axis, Transmat

From there, many of the artists on these labels went on to start their own labels. Many of todays Techno labels can trace their lineage to artists found on these original labels.


I favor raw sonics with a slower progression. Something that sounds too polished doesnt keep my attention as well. With a raw, unfinished edge, it gives me more sonically to focus on in the micro. The slow and impending progression allows me to tune out the macro without it creeping through the song too quickly.It allows me to find that headspace (The Zone) that makes Techno special for me.

Heres a few recent bandcamp releases, hopefully you can see what I'm talking about. These tracks groove great while you're doing something else, like dancing, driving or doing laundry.

A Techno album with a faithful NRG and club classic sound. Though a little too "clean" sounding for my tastes, I enjoy the nostalgic feeling it gives.


Zone Focus is a great compilation series that can help you find artists currently in the TePost too long. Click here to view the full text.
