useful guide or waste of web space?
Here some feedback about what you thought about the "DIY Prodigy" article by Future music. It's not too late yet to send me your own feedback about what you think about this article.
i want to thank you for that interesting journal. It is hard to find
the Magazine and read it... Thought the Article was Okay but it isn't
worth taking any notice of it unless you've got the equipment or can
afford the equipment. As I am not a musician I couldn't really understand
it. But its a good article for people in the music buisness but I
wouldn't like to see many bands do exactly what it says in the magazine
cos' we only need one 'Prodigy'."
it's interesting enough...but i felt some points were so obvious like
the distortion of sounds and how they always sound harder! the equipment
list was so short! And it'll be an eye-opener to try those "steps"
out. However, ultimately, originality accounts much more!"
article was pretty good.. although the kit list was a big dissapoint
to me.. it was only 1/10 of the all his equipment. Anyway.. there
was some mistakes.. Liam has actually 5 x W30.. he has told that in
a Roland interview.. But he uses only 2 of them.. if I'm right. Also
lots of Roland's stuff was missing from the list."
I believe that this Diy thing is very helpfull for some guys or girls
who want to create their own kind of dance music but they like to
have some of the prodigy elements wihtout steeling ideas. Beside's
It's Lia''s own secret technic as he says on stage when he play's
really is crap man, Liam could use this to give people a helping hand
towards creating class music but there is no way on this earth that
anyone can compare with Liam himself no matter how much he shares
his wisdom in music!!!"
I read some over there, did you read it? Obviously it would be useful
starting musically interested boys, girls and... well, yes, people
who try to copy tha band. They just wrote what their music consists
of and it's good that they spotted out tha distortion box (yellow
pedal thingie on the pic, you probably saw guitar plugged to it).
Now people plug synths with that, Prodigy did SMBU (listening through
the track made me understand how bad it is musically :) It has positives
and negatives, but even that riff & the indian sing'ress's vocals
can't close all the disturbance of the track, it annoys. I now get
it, why Beatsie-a-Boys disliked tha track, why all those Prodge fans
got moroned. There is NO BEST BAND IN THE WORLD! You understand it?
ok.. that's all way outta the subject. And why I write this is to
ashure you that you can keep that on the site and your worries can
go suck.. whatever.. bye!"
DIY article is alright, but there are a few problems. First of all,
if you're not a musician and are not familiar with what they are saying,
than don't bother. Second, if you are a musician and understand what
they mean, it's still practically impossible. The reason is because
finding (and being able to afford) the exact equipment that the article
mentions isn't going to happen (unless of course you can afford a
McLaren F1, like Liam). If you're a serious musician who writes music
for the sake of writing music (like myself), it's just impossible
to follow directions because music is a very personal thing. The best
way to find those awesome rhythms and beats that The Prodigy (or any
other dance act for that matter) have is by experimenting! Don't get
me wrong. I read the article to answer my curiousity, but am I going
to actually follow the directions step by step? Of course not! No
musician (including Liam) would."
is quite interesting article, but it has very little info about Liam's
equipment! In this article I have seen for first time list of Maxim's
equipment, and way how he is producing his music. Maybe there will
be more articles in future in this magazine, because they will need
to write couple of them to complete list of all Liam's producing tricks,
and I think that is impossible, cause no one can "translate" all Liam's
