If you don't know, I started a new alias back in December 2015 called TAISUN. It's been off to an amazing start! One of the tracks is already up to 250k plays!!! Better yet, It's a Free Download too. (link at the bottom)
It is an unofficial remix I did of Justin Timberlake's "Señorita". I got the idea from DJing. There's a cool part in the break of the song that I used to mix over techno records back in 2008. It says "It feels like something's heating up" etc (you know the original song I'm sure). Perfect Driver Records had just signed my first EP (which you can get here) and they asked if I could do some pre-promotion by making a bootleg for a giveaway. I thought it was about time I made that Señorita loop into a full bootleg/remix.
It had to sound like TAISUN. The TAISUN sound is Jackin Bass House. So I pulled out Maschine and started cutting up samples from the original left and right. The drums and bass sounds are actually taken from another TAISUN song called "Get...
I've just uploaded a collection of 14 of my favorite and most useful custom Ableton Live Macro plugins that make my life so much easier! They make common tasks faster, and some previously impossible tasks, now possible! There are video demos in there too. Check them out!
About two months ago I decided to start a new side project. I'd been writing a bit of jackin' bass house and really enjoyed the whole process of it. It didn't really fit with the sound of Bass Kleph, so I started an alias called TAISUN. I'm excited to announce that today, the first official release came out on Perfect Driver Records! It's a three track EP called "My name is TAISUN" and it features a collab I did with my good friend Travis Emmons. Listen to the tracks below.
Avast!! This track was originally sketched out on my phone! I used the iMaschine app while traveling and put down the basic idea. I then imported it to my full-size Maschine and started finishing it off. The main melody got stuck in my head and I was singing it to my self unconsciously. I decided to re-record it with my voice. The same silly way I was singing it in my head. Hahaha. It kinda sounded pirate ish after that, so I then when on the hunt for some good pirate samples and wrote some more...
A little while back I did a live Maschine demo and Q&A at Icon Collective Production School in Los Angeles. In case you missed it, here's the video that shows the Maschine Performances and Q&A session with the ICON production students. Topics covered included Maschine, live performance, how I do my thing, genres today, studio tips, and music production in general. Hope you enjoy!
Make buildups in 5 seconds! This Ableton macro plugin will do all your build up automation with one simple knob.
WHAT IS IT?
This is a plugin to simplify buildups in music production. It has one knob. You turn it, and it does many things at once. Mainly, it washes things out. It gradually applies a high pass filter, reverb, grain delay, filter delay, compression, and a few other things. On top of this, when you have the knob on zero, it bypasses all these effects to keep your signal path clean and CPU light. As soon as you start to turn it, it engages the plugins. This thing is an Ableton macro plugin, made from standard built-in, Ableton Live plugins. It only works in Ableton Live. Anyone could have made this. I am not a coder. It's just a very handy FX preset, but......very handy.
WHY DID I MAKE THIS?
I found I was often doing these same things over and over again each time I was programming a build up. So to save time, I built a macro...
