Tutorial: Relaxation App Combo
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

I recently went to NAB in Vegas and my hotel was right off of Fremont street (downtown old Vegas). It was so noisy until about 3:30 am and I just could not sleep so I decided to have a bit of fun and create my own white noise ambient relaxation app combo. Ear plugs just didn’t work it was that bad. The white noise was inspired by my little 7 month old daughter we use white noise with her when she sleeps to drown out all the other noises like creaky floors helicopters, and police sirens (big city noises in Los Angeles). I thought to myself hey how can I create a fun white noise project in AUM on my iPad. I threw in a nice ambient melody generator for an additional relaxation element. The result, my “dream machine”. The following video shows you how you can make your very own “dream machine” hehehe

Still don’t know what Audio Damage apps to buy? Axon2 is great for writing drum tops! The following tutorial will show you how I create drum tops with very little effort. There are three quick tips in this video. Drum tops fill in that space and add funky grooves to your kick and drum patterns. I used Axon2 and Dubfilter for instant gratification freeing up time to work on my chords and melodies.

Beatmaker 3 Traditional DAW
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

I AM SO STOKED to share the latest BM3 guide I just produced. I think it’s going to blow the app wide open for those who still struggle with the app. Those who come from traditional DAW style work flow. The genre of choice Shoegazer/Space Rock/Post Rock whatever you want to call it was a LOT of fun writing and producing for you in this video. I completed a video I’ve had in my mind for about seven days. The goal is to continue with keeping things simple and down to earth so that I could help those who struggle with Beatmaker 3. I want to help you see it as a traditional DAW with bonus other features such as a wicked sampler, clip launching, and automation versus the other way around.

Beatmaker 3 Scenes Mode Guide
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Hello fam. I just cracked Beatmaker 3 open for the first time this week. Being a new dad limits my time to mostly work and taking care of baby with my wife so I have to find time (usually late at night in bed with headphones) to try apps out on my pad. Anyway, at first I was a bit overwhelmed and also intimidated much like my peers. I’m a linear tracking kinda guy I mostly use Cubase and Protools for work when I write for TV so using scenes in BM 3 was at first not really something I cared to explore. Mind you I do have Ableton Live and I’ve used it several times but not for launching clips.

Honestly I had Beatmaker 1 when it came out and never got Beatmaker 2 but they were giving BM 3 away for free during the winter NAMM show so I grabbed it. At first I was like ok this looks totally alien and yet similar as well in regards to the UI and workflow. I challenged my self and said I would not watch any Youtube videos I would learn this on my own via the manual and fumbling about. I got the hang of song mode and wrote this little four bar ditty shared it on some forums and folks seemed to really dig the vibe but many commented saying that BM 3 was very intimidating and the scenes mode was baffling. This inspired me to learn scenes mode and produce a very simple to the point quick start guide with hopes to break down those barriers from some of you producers out there who struggle with the app. I hope it helps. I do plan on producing a couple more quick start guides like this one.
