elektron digitone

so i bought a digitone on credit heeh

finally learned to do decent bass drums

was using the filter resonance for bass drums but that was
too shitty. the kicks made a thud that sounded okish on
headphones but didnt come across as right on the laptop
speaker.

someone on facebook taught me a trick for getting good
kicks
the trick is 'use an LFO with single trig set on exponential
wave form'

here're some samples:

the kicks sound LUSH now imo

there's a drive knob, was gonna experiment with it on the
kicks, not sure if it will turn out like gabba but will add
some nice harmonics to the kicks

yeah i got dissed bad on muffwiggler.com for using a laptop
speaker to test my music. they used a captain picard
facepalm *3.

i use spectrum analyser software to check my levels.
sometimes my mixing is a little bit off but usually i think
it's ok as long as i use the spectrum analyser.

a guy called tom cowbell said "in love with this" on
soundcloud, made my day :-D

jesus umbro if you're gonna drop all that cash on synths,
think about getting some decent monitors, I mean it's like
you're buying rib steak and microwaving it

when i started out 17 years ago i had event 20/20 with
samson amp, sold 'em on ebay. really cant be fucked. i
havent got the space for monitors. spectrum analyser works
really well. listen to my new track "punch".i dont think
there's any problem with the mixing on that track.

btw they played my track pylon residue at an open decks
night last saturday, the bouncer came up to the booth and
asked what the track was because of the arabic melody, he
was an arabic geezer.and the dj complimented me on the
egyptian vibe of the track. no higher compliment than the
bouncer liking the song lol.

the lfos can modulate the drive
and you can turn the lfo into a rudimentary envelope

ive got to back to headphones cos a flatmate got pissed.
honestly you could hear it into all the house, trap music
all the time, windows are closed now, it resounds, so i
didnt argue. headphones are ok with the cold season.

mine have a wire, i curl the wire up and stick it in my

long wires can be dangerous in public, could easily trip you
or someone up. stay safe.

I smoke Marlboro Reds, which I buy in soft packs. I love how
quick autocorrect was to put capital letters to the brand
lol.

I stopped for a while but at the moment I don’t really
care.

Second this. Use them at home and at work. User replaceable
parts, cheap, sound great. Total winners.

There’s a reason they’re a classic.
