We spoke to NYC bands Pinc Louds and The Living Strange about how they’re able to create some of the most exciting, innovative live music performances ever!
Let’s say that you’re mixing a project and it’s arrived to you with phase issues built-in. You have a natural snare recording, but when you turn up the accompanying trigger track, it sounds awful. Usually it’s the above comb-filtering and/or a disturbing lack of low end. You can start by flipping the phase button, and see if that gets you where you need to be. Alternatively, you can zoom in on the waveforms and see what’s up.
Nothing makes a listener hit the back button faster than poor sound quality, which is why a professional podcasting microphone is an essential tool for both growing your audience and keeping them tuned in. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current microphone or start your first podcast, these mics are going to help you sound your best from the get-go.

From a t-shirt and jeans with a stencil type design to full stage costumes, masks, and wigs with branded graphics, here’s why your band’s visuals matter.
The ability to move up and down the neck of a guitar and understand what your available notes are in any given fret, is something that many guitarists struggle with well into their careers. It takes an effort to commit oneself to learning where all of the notes are and the patterns they create, but that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult to pick up this skill.
La Fine Del Futuro is diverse harmonically. How actively do you need to steer yourself away from familiar progressions and melodic lines? Or I guess, how do you keep your approach to harmony varied?

Electronic music is arguably the most international genre, its basic forms and sounds able to be infinitely adapted to a variety of different influences and contexts. In this article we’re shining a light on five of the most exciting and experimental electronic artists in the Middle East right now. Engage with what’s here not as a novel “difference” from the mainstream, but rather as a sign of the future where music-making is interconnected and accessible to more people than ever before.
My next move was to warp out a human performance over my beats to hear what it would sound like. I tried both the Wasser and Poppen, and the Poppen sounded cooler. I did continual A/B comparisons with the MIDI version to line everything up by ear.
The six-week mentored course shows students how to transcend tired harmonic clichés to build more nuanced, interesting chord progressions, how to use concepts like modal interchange, secondary dominants, dissonance, and chromaticism, and how to bring a “jazzy” sense of harmony to one’s music. By the end, participants overwhelmingly feel more comfortable crafting sophisticated chord progressions to imbue more nuanced emotions in their music.
So far, we’ve kept to pretty mainstream pop tunes, but when we start to move away from those, things can get murky pretty quickly. For instance, while verses and choruses might be easy to recognize in a big pop anthem, how they function in an electronic dance song might not be as clear. Or how would you describe the form of something like “A Day in the Life” by The Beatles? It’s basically two entirely separate songs smashed together, so there’s no obvious “verse” or “chorus” section. Same thing with Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” but for three songs’ worth!
