Prepare for the Worst…and Other Cheerful Insights from Industry Legend Martin Atkins
Martin Atkins’ three decades in the music business spans genres, borders and industries. Having experience in nearly every aspect of record production and promotion has given him a unique perspective not only on where the music industry is currently, but where it’s going in the future. And basically things are grim unless you embrace new promotion, distribution, and monetization methods. This presentation is less a commercial for Nimbit than it is a blueprint for prospering in a new world.
Atkins has been a member of Public Image Ltd. and Ministry, and has collaborated with Nine Inch Nails. His distinguished speaking resume includes: SXSW, Warped Tour, CMJ, New Music Seminar, Unconvention, NAMM, By:Larm, Dfest, USC, Drexel, , Full Sail, Weiden + Kennedy, Chicago Cultural Center and many more. We’re all glad he can now add PreSonuSphere to this prestigious list.
For more on Martin’s experience with PreSonus, check out his PreSonus Artist bio here.
“Using Sample One, I zoom in on an interesting looking section of my recording and loop it, creating a buzz. Then I tune the sample by tweaking the tune knob, measuring the results with a tuner. Once the sample is in tune, I add effects and adjust the ADSR to tailor the sound. The results can be quite surprising and wonderful. Best of all it’s a totally custom sound that is the result of a really fun creative process.”
James shares a bit about his workflow in Studio One as well:
“Working in Studio One has enabled me to create better than before, I can literally take a single word of Sara’s vocal track—and create a pad using Sample One from the same sound, or even create a bass! We’ve done this on so many of our songs it’s actually pretty funny; sometimes people are like ‘how did you get that low bass sub-it’s so clean!’ They never realize or even believe me when I say it’s based around Sara’s vocal. Same with some of our drums, I’ve literally taken the sound of our dogs barking. compressed them in pitch/tempo then thrown into Sample One and created hits which to use as kicks, snares, etc.”
If you want to get your hands a little rusty, and learn how to turn a radiator into a cello, then this seminar is for you!
James is a member of STEREOSPREAD and has produced and remixed for many projects including Haap, Ask You in Gray, Ilima and The Sexbots, Ummagma, Thy Fearful Symmetry, Diffuzion, Venn Diagram, Jadugara, King George VIII, and Between the Now. Banmier is the creative project of Waynesville, NC, where he currently lives and operates a home studio. Caden has played drum set, marching snare, hand drums and auxiliary percussion in many music settings including symphonic band, marching band, as well as several metal and funk groups. Caden’s venture into electronic music was brought about by the need to express musical thoughts that were more complex and melodic than drum beats.
