Aside from using this forum, what are some good ways to find people to collaborate with?

Sound Design / How do I make this sound
« on: February 27, 2018, 10:51:43 pm »
So I don't know how to describe the sound I want to make but i know it's used fairly commonly in dance music. David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Brooks' recent single "Like I Do" has it and it comes in at approx 2:02 in the song and you can probably hear it best at about 2:12ish. It sounds to me like a robotic voice sorta thing.

I've attached a youtube link for reference:

Any comments would be appreciated

Mixing/Mastering / Mixing Leads
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:40:06 pm »
So I’ve got a progressive house song im working on at the moment and I’m happy with the melody for my lead(s) but I’m having difficulty achieving the Sound I want for it. I was just wondering if anyone had some advice on how to approach mixing leads and how to layer different sounds in order to achieve a desired final sound? (Hope that makes sense)

Samples/Plugins/Software/Gear / Microphone Recommendations

I'm looking for a decent USB microphone with either a desktop stand or a regular stand at a reasonable price.

Can anyone give me any recommendations at all?


Composition/Arrangement/Theory / How to add momentum to your songs
« on: November 06, 2016, 06:03:46 pm »
I've got the hang of writing melodies and arrangement and a variety of other things but I want to know how to make sure my songs have momentum (if that's the right word) because at the moment they sound quite static, robotic and boring.

Any advice?

Hi, I wasn't really sure where to put this topic but I figure this was the best section.

Basically I'm 19, and I have a full time job and have done since August last year,which usually means I don't get a lot of free time in the week. Also I go out with friends a lot on weekends. I always loved the idea of making music, and I started about 9 months ago potentially earlier but I'm not sure. Anyway, what I've found is that I usually don't have a great deal of time to sit down for intense period of time and learn/make progress, I tend to do like a 3 hour session max at a time if a weekend, but then I may not have enough time again to do it again until the next weekend. I try to fit in as much time as possible and I think I need to start planning my time out better of weekends and evenings to get more done. But  I was wondering what other people are like. Do you have a full time job and still have time to produce?  Or do you have a part time job or do you just do production? Also do you spend long periods of time producing or short sessions?

And if anyone has any advice on how to manage time better that would be appreciated
