We are proud to announce a new way to be discovered.

SounddOUT Your Music!

Our goal is to discover new and unique beats/ tracks thru our YouTube channel each week. If you got a dope beat, let’s hear?? it. Any style music is welcome. It’s our way of checking you out and connecting with more talented people.

?Instructions:
Send your direct music links to [email protected] along with your producer, artist name and where you can be found (social links, website, etc.). We prefer direct links to soundcloud, bandcamp, etc. otherwise we will pick something random. If you need to send a mp3, we will play it anyways but no wav files.

Example:

Wrong: http://SoundCloud.com/kevnelib

Correct: https://soundcloud.com/kevnelib/rnbass-style-beat

If you do not have sample clearance for chopping popular copyright music, we like to stay away from it. Don’t want our channel shut down for this. Royalty free samples are ok.

?Copyright:
Keep in mind, we will be live publicly. The live stream videos are archived each episode. We will not be responsible for the theft of your music, so make sure it’s protected. Send your music at your own risk.

We will announce the beat maker/ producer then play your music up to 1 min and give a chance for audience reaction. Sounds good? Let’s do this.

Impact Pitch Bend- Toggle/ ADSR

Impact Pitch Bend- Toggle/ ADSR

Presonus Studio One Impact

Ever wondered how they get those Hi-Hats to change pitch in Hip-Hop? Don’t Sleep on Studio One Impact!

I spent a little time in Studio One messing around with Impact the other day, which is Studio One’s drum machine (similar to Akai MPC, Native Instruments Maschine Studio, or The Beat Thang). This plugin comes with every Studio One version, pretty basic yet still very useful. The features in ImpImpactact is pretty kool. Some of the things I love to do is first drag samples from my hard drive or from the “Loop” section in Studio One browser on to any pad. Yup, just that simple. After I drag my samples over, I can route them to their own separate channel or track as either stereo or mono for further processing. So if I need to add a compressor or reverb specifically to that channel I have that option. I also love playing around with the pitch feature as shown in the video above.

But somehow I’ve never managed to access the features located to the bottom of the plugin until this one particular song. My goal was to go after the ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, and Release) type functions I’m use to when working in Battery 4 or Maschine Studio. I discovered the toggle feature that works like the on/ off or cut-off type deal. The only thing different here is that you have to actually play the note or the sound you wish to record followed by the same note to cut it off. Or you can just simply use your mouse to insert your ideas in the piano roll.

Automating the pitch is a piece a cake. In the video I also talk briefly about how this works. Presonus has worked really hard to produce awesome tools and really easy to use.
