Sound Design / How does one make this piano?!

Hey all, Ive been attempting to recreate the piano sound from the track, im fairly sure its a honkytonk piano, maybe band passed? Playing Eight's? Ive tried but nothing sounds that good at all.

It's important to pick a structured curriculum - not some sort of "crash course" self-teaching book or cheat sheet - and follow it. There are tons of resources available from udemy or khan academy to just finding a local piano teacher that can also teach you theory or enrolling in a community college course. Theory contains a lot of subjects within it, and you can get really overwhelmed if you do not know which order to learn them in. Then having to deal with the sorts of logical conclusions that everyone incorrectly makes, and the very very tricky world of enharmonics (Can you tell me what notes are in the F Diminished chord without using your piano roll? Then can you find them on the piano roll?)... It's just helpful to have a resource (and if you can get a teacher, even better).

Ive just booked for term two in to piano lessons near my area (two weeks till start), Would you say its ok to do some udemy courses like linked above while i wait? :) Or just wait till i actually begin?

To be honest, this is why I don't like learning music theory from youtube tutorials and stuff like that. They give you a lot of rules that you're expected to follow without properly telling you why, and people develop an expectation that the rules are concrete and permanent and/or learn information that only makes sense when you learn fundamental concepts that get glossed over.

You can use any note and any chord in any scale, because almost every scale has the potential to play every single note, you just have to change the accidental. C Major contains every natural note (white keys on the piano), so the D chord you're referring to - D Natural Minor - would be called a diatonic chord - it only uses notes that are found within the scale. However, there's nothing saying that you can't use D major (D F# A) or D Diminished (D F Ab), for example, if you think it'll sound good.

I recommend everyone go to and spend a few days really going through the lessons one by one and trying to digest the information in sequence. If you can learn to read sheet music, comprehending theory gets so much easier.

I lurk around alot but i see you post often everything you say has been amazingly helpful and respectful. i shall do exactly as you said, learning theory from videos and stuff is hard because of the exact reasons and if you get confused, or take something the wrong way IMO you can develop bad habits. as you said i shall spend the time i do on production daily into learning theory far better and understanding As its a extremely fundamental part of making songs and i do want to learn how to play the piano thus sheet music would be wonderful to learn. thank you for the link.

Hey all, I've been trying to learn and wrap my head about some music theory stuff (Bought the Hook Theory E book and such)
I seem to be getting confused on chords and such, in the sense that if i was to draw the whole C major scale in my daw, id use it such as
C(1), E(3), G(5), And then id just change it from say D chord to D(1), F(3) A(5), is there any issue doing that?
And i was also  wondering what your favorite tutorials or videos on these are?

Sound Design / Layering synths.
« on: March 18, 2016, 07:36:47 pm »
Hey all, long time no talk :P

Anyways I'm having some issues with synth layering, I tend to use a piano sound in most tracks I use because I love the harmonics of if but I have some issues trying to layer it and make it sound more "FULL".

If there's any tips or tricks or tutorials or anything that can help me learn how to layer stuff to make it sound either full of as one sound that would be amazing.

Isnt a tad bit amazing that we can make full tracks mix and master them and release from one single computer.. It's truly insane.

Splice is amazing, the comments feature allow you to collab in tracks quick easily, the samples are quite good and there roll more out weekly basically

Try this.

Options > Audio Settings > Try either ASIO or FL ASIO And increase the buffer or decrease it.

Holy crap, a silly little thought I had at night, has one person who's inspired reply. That's cool. :D, it's not really a problem at all as the site scales to mobile pretty well but tapatalk or something could make it a bit easier to use :D

Just curious to if there will ever be a forum app it doesn't have to be anything special just the forum in a easier way to browse when on the move, then using the browser since there's no notifications about messages or replys so if an app could that would be nice I'm no programmer so I don't really understand what's involved but just an idea :)
