Something I made for GYBO. My mixes usually contain this many tracks but much more messily laid out :D

Something along the lines of this.

I know it's pretty messy without any labeling on different patterns and my extensive use of the blocks, but it's just what I'm used to :P I also never use this scaling in the playlist, it was just for the purpose of getting the entire track in the shot :)

A lot of my songs tend to be really basic, running only FL Studio 10 at this point. I notice that there are people who run playlist track that contain patterns, and they also have a seperating bar at the bottom with an individual sample but I have failed to realize what this is and how to make my playlist look like that. -_-

I find it actually detracts from your songs, if you're trying to lay down a mix, you can get so caught up in what it "looks like" that you forget the important part, what is sounds like. I find I have to press play and walk away from the PC and hear it from another perspective, not attached to all the bars and lines to really hear it.

i'll start by showing what i spend my last two days with..

it's a Logic screenset and one of the first finished tracks we recorded with a german MC called Don. it's based on some simple idrum samplerplayers for the beat, kontakt2 orchestra instruments, 6 tracks for vocals incl. doubles/adds plus 3 tracks for cuts.

we recorded and edited the vocals in ProTools and then imported clean tracks in the beat-project-file for the final mix.

Image

you can listen to an earlier version of this without cuts on our myspace-page

Nice work, got to start colouring my tracks after 5 years of using logic haha been told it can improve workflow.

Why wouldn't you watch it if you could? Being able to see the waveform of the sounds you are using is an incredible luxury.




I agree, some people are a bit narrow-minded.

Started out with only 9-10 tracks and now it's blowing to nearly 40. Cost of making basslines change so much.

But 40 is absolutely normal! Every CPU should be able to handle that and the workflow is still good.

Hi,

here is my Screenset. Its is a song that I did not finish yet, but you kinda get the Idea:

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/197/reasonscreen.JPG

I use Reason for Drums ONLY since I really like the Kong. All the synths and the Mixing is done in Ableton. I also edit Vocal-Files (from acapella :P ) and slice them into smaller clips when I remix a song.

I usually have up to 8 Lines:
1 for Basedrum and Snare
1 for Percussion
1 to 3 for Bass Synth
1 to 3 for Chords

Best,
Hans
