    ok, in the new year me and a mate are looking at trying to create a track or two just for fun. Unfortunately we have no idea what software we need and how to go about it, but the enthusiasm is there!

    So i was just wondering if anyone knew any good tools to use, any articles to read on production or anything like that. I've tried reading through a few of the threads on here but im lost as soon as people start talking about different filters etc :no:

    Basically we have no idea where to start :unsure: Im guessing getting a good bass rhythm/melody is the key with the percussion, and then overlaying that with all the other melodies/sound effects/samples.

    cheers in advance guys :Smile3:

    Well,
    A few years ago, I started with rebirth from www.propellerheads.se (where you can download a demo).
    Its a classic 303 emulator complete with an 808 and 909 drum machine.
    It should give a gentle introduction to techno/trance styles, just don't expect big things when you start as theres a long way to go..

    this should help:

    http://www.tweakheadz.com/guide.htm

    my advice would be to read it before doing much else :Smile3: it can seem overly-techy at times, but be persistent - it's really, really worth it IMO.

    best of luck! :Smile3:

    fruity loops and reason are other good starting points. the only real way to learn is just to get stuck in.

    Yeh, i try that but fruity loops just overwhelms me! Same with most audio software, so many menus/buttons etc it just feels daunting at first. But nevertheless we shall try :bananada:
