Anonymous asked: Please come to Australia! Have you traveled here before? If not get on a plane and your shows would sell out instantly!
Haven’t been there yet. But I’ll hopefully get there soon. Everybody tells me that the electronic music scene is so good in Aus.
Anonymous asked: Hey FatRat how do you make your kicks? I can make nice claps but kicks are difficult for me. What samples do you use? How do you process/layer your kicks in general? How long does it take you to make them?
Usually I make one kick for a certain style and then use it for the next 6 months. This takes me a little time. Like 2 or 3 hours.
I have no certain plug or sample collection that I use. Just everything that I can get my hands on.
Anonymous asked: Why aren't your songs on iTunes? I would BUY them all, better than this "David Guetta". TheFatRat is the future :D
Most of them are just freeeeeeee! But maybe I’ll get some on iTunes soon for those who want to buy them.
Anonymous asked: Hey, I was listening to your ratnest mix, and felt compelled to write a short poem as I did: "This uncomprehensible noise, it gnaws inside. Sounds reflected from the beats of my beating heart's voice, makes my blood rush like the crushing tides. With every moment filled with silence, my ears look for the lack of crazed acoustics. Tying the notes, bits, odds and ends, is this what I comprehend as music?"
Haha, this is awesome!
Anonymous asked: What's your preferred method for adding stereo width to a track? Do you find it better to do spreading and stereo enhancement on individual busses (bass, synth etc) or on the master?
Sometimes I use a plug to ad stereo width on a certain sounds. But that’s pretty rare. I try to have sounds right away that have the right width but also sound good mono. IMHO it’s much more challenging to have a track that sounds good mono on laptop speakers than having an ultra wide stereo field.
5copy asked: Outside of the EDM scene then who is your fav artist/artists?
keztut asked: What program do you recommend producing music you personally? I have a lot of music theory knowledge just no knowledge as such on VSTS etc..
My favourite is Ableton, but I’d suggest you try different demos and see what you like most.
unpersonified asked: I've been producing EDM for close to 3 years, and like you I was in Logic for the longest time. Now that I've switched to Ableton, I'm finding that it is a lot easier to produce a full track, but I only have a limited library of my "own" homemade samples. I've started working more and more on sound design, but my question to you is: do you spend time exclusively on designing an instrument? Do you have any tips that you've discovered that might help with creating sounds quickly and efficiently?
Ableton FTW! Yes I spend quite some time on designing sounds. Not only while I produce a track but also just sit down and do sound design. But I don’t have a way to do it efficiently. To put it in a poetic way: it’s more like a journey into sound for me. No need to rush it.
Anonymous asked: What is the best and easiest software to do megamixes of many songs and have a nice and listenable transition between each tracks?
Guess that would be Ableton Live. Especially megamixes cause you can get everything in sync easily.
