Carnage 808 tutorial – Is this guy for real?
This Carnage 808 tutorial for Razer Music has been doing the viral rounds but for all the wrong reasons…
It is bad with a capital B. For starters – and we’re not knocking FL Studio because there are many good producers who use the DAW –it’s pretty funny that the video starts with him sitting in this kickass studio surrounded by all this gear, and all he does is opens his laptop and fiddles around in the music program.
At first we thought the Carnage 808 tutorial was a parody video. Can a producer of his stature really be so clueless? Apparently so…
Aside from the obviously cracked version of Sylenth1 – hello…the license says DONTKNOWWHO – erm that’s a giveaway pal, he says things like “I don’t know what it does it just makes everything super louder…” when explaining how he boosts the sound of his kick, but all he is actually doing is turning up the volume everywhere he can. Okay he does mention layering his kick and tightening it up by trimming the waveform but really… that’s all you need to do to make an awesome kick???
His EQ boosting is also highly debatable. In this Carnage 808 tutorial he really likes to boost frequencies quite radically. Ever heard of subtractive EQ buddy? It also works!
We won’t even get onto the melody. It’s bad…. B.A.D….
But the name dropping and vague explanations…. they’re just the best… or worst… laughable to say the least.
But don’t believe us… watch it yourself. This Carnage 808 tutorial has been watched 84,929 times. How many in disbelief and how many to pick up tips we wonder?
