    Easy, im trying to do a heartbeat buildup for the drop getting faster and faster and struggling quite a bit. Any one ever tried something like this or got any tips for getting it sounding good? I can't decide whether to do it for the last 8 or 16 bars of the intro for a start.

    Also does anyone know where i can get hold of a good chainsaw and girl screaming sample?

    Cheers! :)

    find a good quality heartbeat sample, can't polish a turd and all that

    also having a rising tempo up to the drop ain't very dj friendly if you're hoping to play it out

    Any ideas where i can get a good heartbeat sample?! Maybe the music to Holby City or something lol.

    And yeah not really bothered man, my tracks aren't sounding quality enough to play out at the moment anyway! Just a small project i've given myself to try and do!

    thinking about that shouldn't be the priority, the priority should be to make good tunes. Its the dj's problem to find a way to play it out, it's the producers job to make a good track :teeth:

    yeah I totally agree, but it's an unfortunate consequence of producing music in a genre which is mainly aimed at the dancefloor and DJ

    in DNB, I'd guess about 80% of music payed for is by DJs, so if you've got unmixable tunes, with different time signitures, tempos and structures, then it's unlikely to be played out, and that means less promotion, which means less sales.

    however it does seem to be changing, with producers like Sabre, Rockwell, Burial etc.

    A quote from Sabre himself sums it up well

    Artists need to stop making tracks specificly for mixing. You dont need to beat match two tunes to mix them, an dj's have been around alot longer than beat matching.
