Yo this thread is almost four years old, of course most of these links won't work anymore.

I can still see the dust on this thread.

my question would be, when people ask common questions, why do they get told to go to a topic with so many dead links?

seems weird, but yeah if you could update the fruity loops tutorials for us, i would be very happy.

People seems to ask same question 20 times, after was answered already... curious, isn't it ?
Q - Why links in the first post are hard to follow/ dead links/ leading to a crappy search engine ?
A - Because this thread is four years old and some websites moved.

I guess the most useful would be THIS TUTORIAL.

Now for music related useful tutorials comes those :
Capturing the Kit - About recording drums.
Recording Electric Guitar - About recordin... heck, isn't obvious ?
6 Stereo Miking Techniques You Can Use Today - Basic description of most usual stereo miking techniques.
Complete Frequency Chart of Musical Notes - Useful for EQ-ing some notes out or boost them by their specific frequency.
Educypedia: Microphones - lots of explanations, lots of useful links.

Sorohanro, I could really use your Jazz insight on a re-mastering and re-finish of one of my other songs.. are you available immediately for some critiquing? AIM : crosstheslashes or YIM: djharlock3

at your leisure :)

*sorry for going off topic, I will admonish myself for it with a fork*

sorry if it seemed like i didnt realize this already, im just wondering why people keep getting linked to it, when its of little to no use(mostly referring to the fruity loop help topics that pop up every so often)

The Fruity Loops have it's own thread now and some links are not dead.
Also, as an idea, is a great thread, people should contribute to it more often, sharing useful links, not only discussing collateral stuff.

Now on topic:
Editing Audio With SoundForge XP
Diplo - Music Mastering Guide
www.jazz-styles.com - a great jazz knowledge resource, the website is in French, if you don't get along with that language, you can use FREE ONLINE TRANSLATOR
The Mic Demystified: Part 1 - a basic view over microphones.
Miking Basses, Revisited - a must see, works also on guitars ;)
There are some NG great resources, a must read (and understand maybe)
Flash-MX's "The principles of self-mastering an Electronic track: EQ'ing"
Rig's "Handy musicians' blog posts and threads"
Motion - A Mastering Experiment
================
Music Theory
- The Tonal Centre
an interactive site for music composers and theorists which explains and demonstrates some of the key concepts of tonality; including chords, scales, cadences, and modulation.
- Ricci Adams' Musictheory.net
An easy to understand, animated (Macromedia Flash Player 6.0r65 or higher is required to view the content on this website) music theory site.
- teoría
General information on and definition of concepts in music theory.

Winning a contest sponsored by PrimeLoops brought in my attention this section of tutorials on their web page:
www.primeloops.com/the-mix/free-music-pr oduction-tutorials
Mostly Reason and Logic but also some general info about compressing and EQ-ing.

No, not at all, you can get Reason, Cubase, or any other sequencer. there is nothing that says you HAVE to have FL. Unless you're trying to do some of these tutorials.

i prefer Reason to Fruity loops because right from the start reason has better sound samples for snare and high hat and foot base and all others compared to FL.

Aww, you should have posted this 22 days later. Then you could have posted this exactly a year after the previous post! ^_^

A quick run-through of basic music theory I wrote up as a small side-project a while back. It's intended for people with both little and moderate knowledge of music.

It was a very useful post. If information is relevant and helpful nothing wrong with a little bump in an "official" -something thread

I did post in the audio lounge asking if folks thought it would be okay. Plus, it's actually only been about a year since the last post. Not as bad as six.

"Layering
Big basslines are made up of layers. Layering is a prevalent concept in electronic music, as you will come to understand in these tutorials, because individual synth patches or samples tend to sound thin. The last thing you need is a thin, wimpy sounding little bassline right? Big, meaty basslines are achieved by layering multiple synthesized or sampled sounds on top of each other. Each layer comes from a separate source and occupies a discrete frequency range, but together they are perceived as one cohesive element. Of course, they all must be playing the same pattern and notes."

I won't answer to this because it seems that you can write but, strangely, you can't read.
Go back to primary school and return when you know how to read.

Just for the record, this question appeared several times on every FU%!N' page and was answered several times, last time on this very page just 17 posts before.

It looks like this.

This is how;
Trade in for creative, I've found that Live!Drive is rather incompatible, somewhat like mac, its good and all, but only for things it likes.
