    Deep House using MPV techniques
    Alright guys Just wanted to say how useful i've been finding the Ableton videos, especially the ones by Olav Basoski and the one on racks. I have learned alot over the last few weeks which is a big call as i've been producing for a while and completed alot of online production courses....so keep up the good work! I have just finished a Deep House track which demonstrates a few of the techniques which i have picked up in the videos. I made the track in about 12 hours from start to finish as it is for a competition run by Ableton and they gave a 24 hour deadline! At first i thought there was no way i would be able to make anything half decent, but using the techniques i've picked up i managed to put something good together. In fact, out of over 1200 entries i'm floating somewhere around the top 20! If you would like to take a listen, the link is below (And feel free to vote and help me get 1st place, there will be some major big ups going out to MacProVideo then!) http://contest.ableton.com/tracks/863

    Thanks Mozzatron. Will take a listen and vote. I also tried the Ableton Beat the Clock compo. Was good having a 24 hour deadline to put the pressure on for song creation. Take a listen to my track: [url]http://contest.ableton.com/tracks/973[/url] Its got a dubstep electronica vibe. Good Luck!

    Nice one Soundbase! Good stuff Gary, liking it alot, voted and commented! Love what you did with the vocal.......what did you use to chop it up and get the effects on there? Good luck mate you should do well, that's if it was judged on quality......i just hope you have alot of friends as unfortunately it's all judged on how many people you can spam and get to sign up to soundcloud! Oh well, i'm sure you had as much fun as i did which is the main thing

    Thanks Mozzatron. I used manually cut up the vocals. You can take a look at my Skrillex tutorial on how to create interesting manual edits: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/hub/ableton-live/sound-like-skrillex-ableton-live-part-2[/url] I used a similar process as I did in this tutorial. And then added some of Abletons processing effects. Like the reverb and delays. Yeah, you right the competition does depend on how many Soundcloud users you know. Pity. Maybe the judges will make the final decision not based on numbers. Good Luck to you too. If you get to go to Berlin, take some pictures for me.

    Excellent i will definitely be checking that out later! I also wanted to give thanks to everyone thats voted for me so far. Out of over 1,500 entries i'm sitting around the top 30 which is amazing, so thanks again for the support! I'm sure you know how these competitions work, it's more of a popularity contest and how many Soundcloud followers you have which is a croc of ****. I wish people would start running competitions and judge on actual quality. Anyhow if i end up in the top 25 when the comp ends, a winner will be chosen based on quality of the song.....so i'm really trying to get myself in there to have a chance. There's still plenty of time to vote so if you get chance to have a listen and place a vote i'd really appreciate it. And if anyone wants a copy PM me and i'll send one over. Here's the link..... http://contest.ableton.com/tracks/863 Just hit "Login to Vote" in the top right, then connect with Facebook or your Soundcloud account....then hit 'Like" at the top of the page to vote.
