hello everyone.

i'm interested in sounds of teebs, samiyam, matthewdavid & dakim.

i tried to figure out how they make sounds. how they work by myself but i can't find ways to make that kinda ethereal, full & warm sounds.

perhaps they know how to find suitable samples. but at the same time, i guess many songs from them is not sample based... - also they seem to use 303/404 well - how they use?

if you have some clues, share secrets to me please.

yup. right. that's all what i've tried so far - instead of weed lol.

 

but still i'm struggling with all parts except drums.

in interview, teebs said nowadays he doesn't use samples well.

but you know they has specific sounds and feeling what they share - especially teebs, matthewdavid & dakim.

 

also i dunno what they do w/ sp 404 in this videos...

Distortion, overdrive, eq boosts in the mid range. You can go as overboard as you please and tame it with a compressor if it gets gnarly or too out of hand
+using vinyl and tape sources will help

A lot of their sound relies on effects. Most of it would come together with compression (like grifty mentioned), reverbs, filters, sidechains etc. if your just layering sounds on top of each other without any direction in terms of where you want to take it and just hoping it will sound like a teebs beat then you're in for a long ride... I would reccomend maybe looking up some of their earlier less advanced peices and trying to recreate them. Recreating their work will give you a much better understanding of what they're doing more than just trying to make something that sounds similar.

thanks for good advices.

i did some researches before and got knowledges about comp, saturation and so on.

but i would like to know about more basis like scales, modes, harmony and so on... - also i read some jazz theory books but that wouldn't help a lot...

lol, theory's a book of worms dawg.  you could major in that shit in college and not know everything.  it wouldn't hurt to learn how to read music first, then learn a C major scale second.  wrap your head around the C major/A minor relationship.  learn some chord construction stuff and then pick a key and try to play around while staying in key.

Yeah I wouldn't get to heavy in to theory man... Knowing some is good but knowing to much can make it hard to be creative because you constantly confine yourself to doing things that only relate to what you have learnt. Can become restricting. A lot of jazz musicians who play more than one instrument will only learn the basics of each instrument and how to read the music. The rest is improvisation and having fun.

The more you get in your head the less creative you'll become.
