LSDJ & You: Show us your tips

April 3, 2013 in LSDJ & You

After last years excellent and life-saving LSDJ & You articles, we’re opening the doors for the community to write their own tips and secrets exposing not only their personal tics, but also serving to create some of the closeted secrets locked inside of the minute intricacies of Little Sound DJ.

What we’re looking for here is either some technical tips for sound, your favourite patches or insights into your personal signature sounds.

When writing, please try to explain the rationale behind your patch/sound design. The series tries to present the logic and tools to play with the parameters in LSDJ, rather than simply sharing patches. You’ll need to explain what you’re doing and why.

You can submit these to Roboctopus via private messaging here on noichan. There may be a delay in time of submission to time of press, so please wait patiently. We will contact you when we’re ready to post a submission.

We’ll need some recordings of sounds and screenshots via emulator to support your article. Please try to write as concisely as possible, and spellcheck your copy. You might even be featured up next for the series. We look forward to hearing from you!

    This is a good idea. Maybe I’ll give it some thought.

  2. I would really like to get someone’s tips on chain organization… some people do 1 phrase per chain, some do 4 per chain and just make more chains. It drives me absolutely crazy when I have to go back to the beginning of a song to hear the end because the channels aren’t synced on # of phrases.

      • Personally, I’ll use 4 phrases per chain in most cases. Sometimes I make a row of one phrase chains for changes in the song or breaks in the beat.

        At least once I’ll make one channel 7 phrases and another one 8, but that’s for polyrythms, so the row syncs up. (the 8 phrases were going at 7/8 time)

      • 99 times out of a 100 i do 4 phrases per chain. 1 time if it’s a repeating line or noi beat.. i work in live mode so it all depends on how fast i can select other chains, when i have to time MIDI stuff, too

        tl;dr – 4 per chain
