Samples/Plugins/Software/Gear / Does anyone still use Nexus 2 anymore?
« on: February 04, 2017, 08:29:10 am »
I just bought it myself a week ago. I also just bought Kontakt also but will not be purchasing any kontakt libraries for about the next 3-4 weeks because I'm strapped for cash lol. But I managed to get some free hip hop and semi trap libraries for Nexus to fill the void and learn the ins and outs of Nexus. I looked around several different producer threads and now they just talk about it as if it's old news. It seems like there isn't much you can do to get the New Wave rap sound or the all to common Atlanta Trap sound that everyone is gunning for. So far in my 3-4 hours of playing around with it, the only type of beats that Nexus seems to cater to would be Chicago drill beats and the old trap beats. So I guess my main question is, is have any of you guys got anything productive done recently with the help of Nexus? And should I keep chugging with Nexus or just focus on Kontakt and maybe Omnisphere in the future?

Suggestions / Subfourms for different music genres

I was thinking, with all of the producers on this site from different backgrounds and having different tastes in music, it would be cool to have sub fourms foe the main genres for music. I was thinking it would make sense to put them under production talk. It would be easier for like-minded producers to communicate this way, which could lead to more collaborations.

It's a nice start. The high hats are too meanacing though! First, they are crazy loud and you hear them over the melody, which isn't a very efficient sound in my opinion. Second, it's too much going on with the hats, I can't really focus on the keys or the pad with all of the loud hat rolls. Just tweak the hats a little bit, and you'll be on track to making nice trap bangers!

Nice track overall. It has a good wavy trap sound that any rapper would love to jump on. In my opinion, I feel like I'm waiting for an umph moment but it never comes. There's no huge contrast from the main hook section compared to the other sections. I would maybe layer or add another sound, like a crash hit here and there for the main hook section. Otherwise, it was really good!

I'm up for it. Great idea!

I like this idea.. I'd be down for it

What's up guys!

 I'm Finesse the Kid, and I produce hip hop music currently. I have been producing for almost a year so I am slowly trying to expand into rnb and boom bap styles. I have about 4 decent tracks out and I'm working on the 5th. I am from Mississippi, so if there's anyone nearby that wants to do a collab. Hmu whenever!

Finished Tracks / Hip Hop track feedback? Will do feedback for feedback?

It's my fifth track. Not sure what to label it (a freestyle beat maybe?). Want to know how the mix sounds and if you guys have any tips for me on how to improve on this sort of track for future reference. Will give feedback also.
