Rhyphte’s Remarks: Why Collabs Are Pretty Cool

Posted by

A lot of people make the bassline (huehue) assumption that multiple musicians working together is automatically a band. While the vast majority of multi-man musical acts do come in the tried-and-true form of live-performance groups, the picture is much blurrier in the realm of electronic music characterized by digital production and playback. Due to the relative ease of collaborating piecewise with an individual thousands of miles away via the internet, you see things like features, remixes, and group handles all over the place. While this article is mostly aimed at getting into the “collab” side of things, most of what’s covered can be applied to anything similar enough.

Paul’s Tech Talk – LSDJ 5.1.0, Civil War Part 2: The new L command, and KICKS

Posted by

Hello all and thank you for reading The ChipWIN Blog!

In the last issue of this column, we tackled the infamous 5.1.0 LSDJ update and dwelled on the theory of what it brought to the table. To cut it short, it all boiled down to a complete redesign of Pitch behaviour. What the community did not expect, was all the ramifications and ripples it would have, and it ended up being a highly controversial update, to which many would actually choose to turn a blind eye.

If you haven’t already, I suggest reading the first part of this article before delving into this one, just to get familiar with what’s at stake. In this second part, I will first spend some time going over the specifics of the all-new L command also introduced in 5.1.0. Then I will go over how I view the anatomy of Kicks. And then, finally, I will try to get more practical, and give several examples of how to work with LSDJ 5.1.0 and above to utilize all these new features to the fullest.

Let’s dive in!

Bit by Bit: Balancing Musical Intuition with Education

Posted by

Hello, friends!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  I wanted to start of by thanking all of you that have specifically brought your interest and appreciation of this article series to my attention.  It certainly helps motivate me to continue making these, and coincidentally I have the outlines on an article based off of motivation and goals, but that’s for another time.  This article is based on the necessity to balance your musical intuition with education.  Both, from my perspective, are crucial.  Your application of both of them, of course, is all up to you.
