Electronica has more subgenres than any other braod category that I can imagine. With that, people get very opinionated on each sub-genre. It's impossible to make everyone like every genre of electronica, but what we need to do is find peace.
This is a place where you can feel FREE to post whatever style of electronic music you please. This could be anywhere from very conformed genres, to ambient music and all the way to electronic-based music that people draw influences from every area of the world.
My goal for this group is to provide an open-minded and accepting community, where people can share, collaborate and explore new areas of this music spectrum.
It's for exposure.
It's for creativity.
It's for one musician to another, to help the producer struggling and provide contacts to explore the endless possibilities of the music we have all grown to love.
Criticism is MORE than welcome, but please try to keep it to constructive and creative suggestions for synth design, drum design, mastering and anything else that can help develop the musician in need. I've only been making music for over a year after deciding that experiencing other musicians' work wasn't enough. How did I learn? I learned through the help of other passionate musicians and their drive to help further the genre as a whole, regardless of what specific style you fancy.
I'm not an expert in any way, but accept comments and messages to help develop skills as a foundation to grow as a producer, and my hope is that this eventually leads to others following in the same footsteps.
I specialize in Propellerheads Reason, which I highly recommend to beginners to learn the important basics of being able to learn more intuitive use of Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs), but I also have expansive understanding in FL Studio 10, and am currently learning work in Ableton Live to further my understanding of DAWs and the connection between all of them, but as I said, I am no way an expert.
For more information on learning the basics of music production, I highly recommend visiting Dave, from BoyInABand's channel at:
And his channel at:
His tutorials are mostly based on certain genres, in a 7 day format. That being said, these tutorials will teach you MOMENTOUSNESS tips and tools of the trade. I recommend following every lesson, being that you learn new techniques in each one.
Dave, is a master. No doubt about it. Also check out his band, which is a very original mix of MANY genres, just showing the extensiveness of his knowledge in any type of music production
Any further questions, PLEASE contact me on here, or on my YouTube channel:
I'll answer as quickly as I can, and attempt my best to show you video examples of getting really interesting sounds that you don't find in many genres, as well as pads, smooth basses and modulation synths that you might need.
Cheers, and I hope you enjoy what I have to offer.
As a side note, everyone sounds like complete shit starting out, unless you're gifted with some heavenly ability that propels you. Remember, feedback is what helps, and posting songs regardless of what you perceive as lack of quality and the "embarrassment" resulting from it SHOULD NOT DISCOURAGE YOU
Every big producer started somewhere, and you shouldn't shoot for that, you should aim for content in what you produce and be proud of.
Pretty much all in, this for the musician in need, the musician for publicity, and most of all CREATING AN OPEN AND POSITIVE MUSIC COMMUNITY, WITH ONLY POSITIVISY AND SELF-PRIDE AND DEVELOPMENT IN MIND!"
