Tutorial episode 3: Basic Beat Editing and Loop Mangling

Posted in Production on July 21, 2009 by Anodyne

It’s back! Another episode of Anodyne’s production tutorials just hit the internet-o-sphere! I stayed up late last night to get this one finished so y’all damn well better ‘preciate it!

Ever wonder how people come up with a crazy break beat loop? I’ll show you a couple of fantastic time savers and get your creative juices running in the process! These tricks are really easy to learn and open up a new world of beat manipulation!

Seals Sound Like Analog Synths… No Really.

This is amazing. You could spend hours programming a series of filter sweeps and pitch bends and still not come close to the beauty of these seal calls.

Upcoming Content:

Posted in Announcements on July 16, 2009 by Anodyne

Yeah, I know, there hasn’t been much on here lately. So here’s a teaser of what’s to come:

-You know those tracks at the beginning of my first two tutorial videos? Yeah those. I’ll be putting the finishing touches on them and releasing them in the next few weeks. Razor sharp bass decimation. Comin’ at ya.

-More video tutorials! They’re fun to make and don’t take very long. I’m hoping to make this a bi-weekly thing! Upcoming episodes include: “Beat Programming”, “Sample Manipulation”, “Anodyne’s Lame Live Setup”, “Pads” and more!

-Did someone say “custom painted hardware”? No? Damn, I thought I heard something… Ah well, I guess I’ll have to keep this gear porn to myself. *fap*

-Events!! Holy Crap! It’s happening! Anodyne is involved in the creation of a new production company. “Open Source” is going to be throwing events in and around the bay area so keep your eyes peeled! Our first event kicks off in early August. Stay Tuned for details.

-Finally, I’m working on an EP. Either to be released on a netlabel or released independently. It’s leaning towards being more official than not though! Look for this in the fall. More soon.

Tutorial episode 2: Making A Gut Kicking Sub Bass

Posted in Production on July 8, 2009 by Anodyne

In this episode I’ll take you through my steps to getting a nice, clean, deep, face-melting sub bass in a track. Just a note… Because we’re dealing with low frequencies it’ll pay to watch this on good speakers unless you’re just taking notes.

Single: This Is Our Message

Posted in Singles on July 7, 2009 by Anodyne

This is our message

Yeah, this is the message. In your face bass action driven by beats of pure sonic energy. Stop standing around on the dancefloor waiting for someone else to start moving! The time is now. We are the catalyst, the music is the mechanism, and you are the vehicle. So move like one.

Special credit is due to Anton Styles for providing some kick ass bass guitar samples and top notch motivation.
