Hello beautiful people. First post on here and i'm not gonna mess about. I want to learn how to make drum and bass. I've spent many many years on the other side of the speakers and loved every minute of it. However it recently occurred to me that my understanding of the fundamentals was sadly lacking. A situation I intend to remedy. Let me state that i'm not looking to become a supa star dj I am doing this purely for my own enjoyment and to learn a new skill. I am using ableton 9 and various plug ins. Here is my idea. I'll make something and post it up here for C+C, all those of you that are willing to join me in my endeavor will take it rip it to pieces play with it, help me improve it and post your efforts back up in this thread. I'll then take that and add to it and rinse and repeat until we've made my first track. This is purely a learning exercise and a chance for me to get to know and interact with some of you. If anything good should come of it (highly unlikely I would imagine) then please feel free to do whatever you will with it. Does this sound like something that any of you would be interested in? any takers? If so i'll get to work on my first 4 bar drum loop and we'll take it from there. I'll be starting off proper basic and building up as I go. It's a commonly held opinion that practice makes perfect. It's an opinion I disagree with. If you're practicing how to do something wrong you just end up being really good at being bad. PERFECT practice makes perfect I think and that is where you guys come in. Hopefully you'll help me to practice the right things. Thanks for reading.
