i have instruments, i have a computer, how do i make great recordings on the computer and then layer the instruments?
logic, cubase, ableton - something like that
and Ableton Live during live shows as well, I believe. I get the feeling he's expanded a bit more now that it's not so much just samples.
I, myself, use a demo version of Ableton Live for editing and layering all the tracks (as well as, nowadays, a Tascam eight-track); with something like Audacity and Goldwave for additional editing and tinkering (nowadays, I do this mainly through hardware, too, though).
There's loads of possibilities though to use a computer in a way that you feel comfortable with; but I definitely recommend checking out those programs.
I say that cause I don't know if it'd be available to download from their website in that form for free
it's more that I'd started making music exclusively using those to layer everything (which limits you quite a bit), so I just kept using them for editing loops and for effects and stuff when I got the Ableton (also partly cause my lite version of Ableton only allows there to be two or three effects banks, and eight audio/MIDI tracks open at one time, so this was a handy workaround to some of the problems that came up)
that makes sense
and I'm not entirely sure why
garageband or Reaper
or even tape on to and over another tape, like boards of canada.
four tet also uses a roland SP 303.. at least in his live rig
To see for certain, what I thought I knew
Far far away, someone was weeping
But the world was sleeping
Any DAW will do
it's all (manipulated) samples.
also, he at least used to use Audiomulch as well was whatever DAW
he deffo plays guitar.
i read some interview where he said that he records guitar bits and thenreduces the pitch on teh guitar parts to get the bass notes.
i'm sure he doesn't do that all the time
I'm never listening to another four tet record again.
when it's clearly insanely complicated. <3 Kieran
then mic them up
