Re: Aphex Twin Tutorial

Aphex Twin takes 12 minutes to make but dubstep only takes 5. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Re: Aphex Twin Tutorial

your tutorials are extremely helpful and clear, i'd like to thank you for them. i was a little bit confused on how you got the string and flute sounds in the first place. i know you sliced them to midi, but where were they from initially?

also, have you thought about doing a tutorial of a balam acab track? would be very interesting.

Well done, 2 points missed in as many posts, "whoopsie daisy" indeed.

Thanks for the tutorial, can't wait to have a proper watch when I get home!

Fucking brilliant !!

Another way to get nice idm-ish rolls.. Load up a drum rack, then use the loop length on hits, draw a nice envelope.. And you got yourself a custom drill/roll/whatever.. Not to say it's better or anything, just wanted to share my method..

Nice tutorial..

I think the best way to learn composition is by deconstructing someone else's music. You don't need to do the same thing or not even the same style. You can in alternative just get what's going on, the basic concepts, to apply in general music.

Re: Aphex Twin Tutorial

Making someone else's stuff is a good road to take while learning the basics.

After a certain skill level, though, it just becomes copy-catistry.
