Audiobus: Use your music apps together.
What is Audiobus? — Audiobus is an award-winning music app for iPhone and iPad which lets you use your other music apps together. Chain effects on your favourite synth, run the output of apps or Audio Units into an app like GarageBand or Loopy, or select a different audio interface output for each app. Route MIDI between apps — drive a synth from a MIDI sequencer, or add an arpeggiator to your MIDI keyboard — or sync with your external MIDI gear. And control your entire setup from a MIDI controller.Download on the App Store
Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.
I want to produce Minimal Techno, where do I start?
As the title of this thread says, I want to produce Minimal Techno, Minimal House, Tech House, etc. However, I don't know where or how to begin.
See, crafting catchy melodic hooks comes easy to me since I know Music theory inside and out. However, there's a difference between a catchy melodic hook in EDM and that incredible hypnotic feeling one gets from listening to Minimal Techno. I want to recreate that hypnotic feeling.
So here are my questions. First of all, which artists would you recommend I listen to more of? What's the current cream of the crop?
Secondly, how do I begin to make Minimal Techno? What type of techniques should I use? What's the theory behind Minimal Techno? What's the focus? What's the "song structure"?
Third, any other advice and tips you can give me?
Thanks, and cheers.
