How does one go about making the nastiest beats ever?!

So I notice a lot of music made with Auxy fails to hit the mark of just straight nasty. In fact I feel most Auxy users aren’t trying to make riddin or DnB… I feel that Auxy definitely has the potential and the sounds for making dirt nasty beats. Any tips welcome here. One thing I’ve found to really help me with making heavy beats is the ability to constantly change shape, time and lowpass

Lol it’s not a bad tip.

To achieve what you’re looking for you’re going to want to leverage sample import. There’s plenty of stuff out there that fits what you’re looking for, or, you could sample out of other apps running through an FX chain (ie, drums thru AUv3’s like Stark or Grind, even something like Amplitube with a distortion pedal/amp setup). Even the stuff build into iOS GarageBand is serviceable…

I’m not sure what ya mean by nasty (probably not your fault, I’m not up to date on lingos)
Layer layer layer!!! Several instruments similar to each other playing as one. Down side is there’s no equalizer so you can drown other stuff out pretty quick.
I think most of my Auxy stuff pushes Auxy about as far as you can get with the distortions and noise.
I do short run experiments to see what things layer well.

This may be of zero help but eh, I tried.

Oh cool! How did you share your project bones! Can I mess around with your song?

They just changed the layout. In “settings” go down to “export project” then “share project”.
Yeah you can mess about with it, it’s a pretty simple repeat beat.

Oh nice! I have some tracks I’d love people to mess around with. And thanks, I’m about to make this disgusting…

I feel like Riddim in Auxy would be a very unique turn of music making in the community since there’s not many people who go with that really heavy sounding style.

This is one thing I did early last year to show how Auxy can be used to create Riddim :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

It’s all you bud. I honestly rarely work above 60bpm’s. But ya ran with the beats that’s for sure, it’s pretty fly. I’m not sure you’d want me to add to it, I’d just make it noisier, I lean towards chaos.

lol he’s a guy who used to be prominent in this community, he made a lot of experimental stuff using imported samples

I don’t see how having access to certain samples makes you better at making experimental stuff

Also, I always hear you talking about how you’re good at making experimental music, but you’ve never posted anything like that before :stuck_out_tongue:

For me, songs that are particularly “nasty” have a lot of distortion and compression on the basses and leads as well as tight, punchy drums.

However, this type of stuff varies a lot on personal preference, so I don’t really know how to give any good advice that will always apply

That’s a lot of talk coming from someone who’s working with me on experimental music🤔
