HOLY SCALE! Chord Progressions Made Easy (Free Download)

HOLY SCALE! Chord Progressions Made Easy (Free Download) No matter what genre of music you produce, knowledge of music theory is a must. It’s unavoidable. From uptempo EDM to a chill Hip-Hop groove, the way the music flows and comes together is all tied in some way to theory. Music theory has always been considered a type of pre-requisite before attempting to venture into production and composition, and for good reason. It’s crucial to understand the relationship between all the many moving parts that makes up a well-rounded piece of music. But as music production has steadily evolved and grown more reliant on digital technology, so too has the framework for understanding theory. Now, countless producers are capable of creating incredibly engaging hits with a very basic understanding of music theory. Seemingly gone are the days of sheet music and intensive training. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Music theory …

Sweetcase- Vintage Electric Piano VST/AU Plug-In (Free Download)

Sweetcase- FREE Vintage Electric Piano VST/AU Plug-In NoiseAsh Audio Tools has released a Vintage Electronic Piano Plug-In most notably named Sweetcase available for both OSX and Windows in VST/AU format. Its interface is simple, the sound quality is decent, but most importantly, it’s FREE! Who doesn’t like free stuff?? With the high costs of some Electronic Piano plug-ins nowadays this is a bargain not to pass up. Sweetcase’s easy-to-use setup has all the modulation controls required to get that vintage sound you’re going for. Most of the sound produced can bring forth that old school jingle jazz vibe. The plug-in isn’t much of a CPU eater so additional processing won’t be much of an issue if you’re trying to be creative and punch its sound even louder. I especially like messing around with the Intensity and Speed modulated with the Pan, Expression and Pitch types to create a weird atmospheric type …

Euclidian Rhythms – Polyrhythms in Ableton Live (Free Download)

Euclidian Rhythms – Polyrhythms in Ableton Live Have you ever found yourself endlessly tapping away on the Drum Rack loaded in your MIDI controller, staring at your DAW for hours in an attempt to spark the inspiration for a new sound? Most of us have been there before, wishing for a quick solution to keep us in the flow of composition. Today I’m going to give you exactly that- a quick and easy way to create new, interesting and complex beats using what’s known as the Euclidean Algorithm. Euclid was a Greek mathematician and one of the most instrumental figures in creating the branch of mathematics known as geometry. He formulated a way to calculate the greatest common denominator (divisor) of two numbers. This means of calculating even distributions, now known as the Euclidean Algorithm, doesn’t just apply to mathematics. It’s a universal law that has been able to transcend …

Perfectly Balanced and Well-Formed Rhythms The mathematical principles utilized by XronoMorph are perfect balance and well-formedness (MOS).

Well-formedness is a generalization of the additive rhythms found in aksak (Balkan), sub-Saharan African, and progressive rock musical traditions. Well-formed rhythms contain no more than two interonset intervals, arranged as evenly as possible. WF rhythm are typically …
