Updated!

Also, sorry to see you go Friv, I understand frustrations with the site, it's honestly a pretty poor tool for music improvement, but there are a few things worth sticking around for.

Okay, I've been seeing a few of the newer people saying they use LMMS, and I've also seen first hand how basic a lot of the demo songs on the LMMS site are and how unhelpful the wikia is, so I guess I'll volunteer as a tutor here.

Genres: General EDM, Improvisational and Classical Piano
Strengths: Basic to Advanced Music Theory (Up to and including Orchestra Notation, Modal Structure, and Counterpoint and Atonal Analysis), Synth Design in LMMS, Melody Writing, Piano Technique and Improv
Weaknesses: Drum Design, Keeping to a Specific Genre
DAW: LMMS (Waits for Lavender to yell at this)
Timezone: GMT -5:00
Contact me: PM on this forum

Well if you are going to throw your hat in with LMMS, I guess I will too.

Genres: EDM (I mix genres in songs too much to really have a main genre, although I'd say a weird mix of house and trance.)
Strenghts (Best to worst): Drum Design, Knowing LMMS front to back, Mixing, Basic Music Theory, Basic Synth Design
Weaknesses: LMMS, naming chords, time management (I am slow)
DAW: LMMS (Hue)
Timezone: CST(American) -6:00 (Not completely sure on the number I suck with timezones)

Might as well give this a shot. I can probably help someone.

Genres: Techno and derivations, Improvisational and classical piano
Strengths: Basic to intermediate music theory, chord progression, melody, mixing acoustic music (including orchestral), patience
Average: Synth design (subtractive & FM), mixing/mastering EDM, processing vocals, compression
Weaknesses: EDM drum design, complex sound design, synthesis other than subtractive or FM
DAW: Cubase 5 (main), LMMS (not so much)
Time zone: GMT-5
Contact: PM me here or add me on Skype at taylor.mp, but don't expect a quick reply the first time around.

Basically I can help out with perfecting a mix, acoustic genres a bit more so than EDM. I've got really good ears to listen to whatever you may need feedback on, and I love to teach what I know. Most of my knowledge lies in classical and acoustic genres, but I know enough about EDM to help you out if you need it.

Okay I guess here comes my first question. Im not that great at sound design, so when I tried to imitate Silva's bass in this track I failed miserably.
https://soundcloud.com/silvahound/silva-hound-bottomfeeders
I wondered if anyone could help figure out a patch for this, preferably with some idea of why it sounds like it does. Massive is preferred, as I know it better than any other synth.

Such a shame that I hadn't found this thread earlier.
But now I have!
Here's my bio part:

Genres that I'm experienced in: Hardcore (and any speedy subgenre), Drum 'N' Bass, Hands Up, (Epic) Trance, House, Hardtechno/Schranz, Ambient House/Breaks.
Other genres that I can help you with (in some way) (there's a difference): Chillout, Chillstep, Deep House, Minimal House, Techno, Hard Trance, Tech Dance, Bassline House, Hardstyle (and all similars), Frenchcore, Industrial Hardcore, Happy Hardcore, Darkstep/Crossbreed, Noise (and all similars), and probably more. Mainly a lot of Electronic genres.
Strengths: melody constructing, composing, Hardcore kick design in Sytrus, drumrolls, keeping a track interesting, universal (I hear if something sounds good or not, whether I like it or not), steady rhythms, suspense.
So-so: mixing, mastering, details, terminology, properly making a bass the way I want it to be, singing.
Weaknesses: synth design, finishing a song.
DAW: FL Studio 10.0.9
Timezone: GMT +1
Contact me: PM me on this forum, mail to [email protected], or Skype (GlitchHero9724). When you contact me, please don't forget to tell me you're from MLR, that helps in knowing who suddenly asks me stuff. Also, please know, I do not bite. Don't be afraid of asking something stupid. Just because you produce music (or would like to) doesn't mean you necessarily have to know a lot about it, that's what we're all here for to help you with.


I reckon that should be enough.

I'll give it a toss!

My info

Genres that I'm experienced in: Moombahcore, House, Dubstep, Drum and Bass, Nuetral/chillish stuff and electro.

Other genres that I can help you with (in some way) (there's a difference): EDM in general.

Strengths: vocal manipulation (not the skillexy melody building kind), pad design, wavetable synths, 3xOsc (don't be ashamed, it's hard to get a decent sound from that right off the bat), generic wubs if you're into that, decent melodies and good sounding drums.
So-so: Mixing, organizing projects, creativity.
Weaknesses: repetition.
DAW: FL Studio 10
Timezone: GMT +10
Contact me: PM me here, Skype (Anthony.Farrugia98), Gmail ([email protected] is my main email), Steam (NorthernFaceCraft - avatar is cheerilee with Obama's face saying "Kawaii Desu~". Like Exo said, please tell me you're from here. I'm not a mean guy, so don't be scared to show me your stuff.


I hope that helped!

Flatterz, could you please remove "mixing and mastering" from my so-so's?
As it isn't really ._.

And maybe add "teaching stuff" to strengths :P

I'm pretty sure most people other then me don't regularly check this thread, if you check the main page though I'm sure you'll find someone with lyrics listed under their strengths though!

Sure, I guess...
I'm starting out with EDM, but I otherwise generally specialize in heavier styles of soundtrack/orchestral music.
Strong Points: Mixing/Mastering, Drums (Big on drums), Orchestral/Soundtrack.
Weak Points: Just about anything synthesis related; recording/mixing down live instruments and vocals.
Skype is Vonzhay. My public name reads "Brightcake (Serrated Skies)"
I use FL studio and Ableton, depending on what atmosphere I want to work in, who I'm collabing with, or if I started on a Mac "Since Ableton is Multiplatform"
I live in the Easter Standard Time (EST) timezone, in New England.
