Yes my plan is to certainly post some stuff up soon.
Not yet though as I am working on some new tracks, soon though I plan on putting a link to on my signature to allow you cats to listen...
Stay tuned...

For anyone starting out and wanting to make techno, save up and get a Tempest and learn as much as possible on how to use it. It will give everything you need to learn how to program beats and program your own synth sounds.
are you sure that the tempest is a techno machine? everytime i visit somebody in the studio that has it, the tempest put out some weard snurgeling rhytmic background stuff but i never have heard id pumpin and kicking sofar... maybe it can do that too..just makes me a little curious why people tend using it for atmospheric weard percussion stuff and not for beats..

any explanation?

beside that there are many cheap machines that are good for techno.. techno actually likes almost any drum machine.. electribes can be cool too..

is it a problem to be younger than the genre you are writing in? does that make you to some kind of teddy boy in the 70´s ? and you do technobilly?

Gear wise, I love them ALL! :lol

I usually overfuss on sonics and tweakings as well but unfortunately it even sounds shyte afterwards. So I am trying to go into the other direction and just move on and learn from mistakes rather than spending so long on an element that it will take a year until I will come across the same situation again...and will probably not remember ;-).
My man this can be a problem when you fuss over your stuff to much. Good to hear you are trying to let go.
This is cetainly something I am always working on, just learning to let go and move on with making tracks.
I have not made a track in 12 months...however It still has been a great 12 months in terms of what I have achieved though.

The last time I was "absorbed" in techno was when I heard this band for the first time:

I'm not super familiar with the newer gear like Elektron ... for me, give me three Roland W-30s and I'll make you a rave!

Hey Mr Varaldo, by no means did I want to ruin the thread you started. I conducted what I thought was thorough search and nothing as such came up.
Ooops no harm intended.

You obviously missed my entire point of the recommendation. If you take the attitude that you need stuff like a TR-909, SH-101, TB-303 to make techno, than you don't get techno, or even music period. Do you think Derrick May was like, "I am going to make techno, so I need a TR-909?" Learn to make the best out of the tools that you can get your hands on. Once you learn the techniques, than you can explore other equipment. The Tempest provides everything you need and yes, it is fully capable of making techno. It has drums, synths, a sequencer and individual outputs.

it can be used for many purposes but i think it's quite a good tool for techno..
it is heavily featured in these 2 tracks:

I wouldn't be surprised if he thought exactly those two thoughts and in that sequence to be honest. But that was those days - now it is different.

You are right - there are no limits to what you can use to make a banging raw techno sound. But some gears are going to take you there sooner however.

Personally, I love the rawer, darker, more psychedelic edge of Detroit minimalism but to be honest I wince from some of the sounds from those days when I hear modern artists using them religiously. Don't get me wrong - I put on a Hood or Drex album and the sounds are all right there and balanced and banging (and Drex just blows my mind production-wise...) but if you are going to make techno now PLEASE don't just give me those sounds AGAIN - I want no modern day homage! You can capture the soul of the thing with new sounds - let the sounds live on, organic and evolving. The whole thing about Detroit was it's edge - those sounds WERE the edge, then.

Compression is the key with this particular sound. And some grime in there won't hurt ya either.

Detroit is still where it's at for me. Not just techno but Dilla and modern day tech/drum.

Case in point - Waajeed.

Are tracks with vocals considered techno ?

I'm quite into the stuff xanax just posted. Was the Tempest used for synth sounds on those ?

Here's a track i like :

Yeah I have the usual Techno Kit
With the likes of the TB 303 Roland 808 and 909 plus the usual Junos and what not....
And comparing the Tempest to these machines I would say yes it most certainly a very capable techno machine.
Look out in the next few days as I am about to post some Tempest audio files for a few cats here who have requested them.

Maybe... but maybe he just found a cheap TR-909 drum machine and he programmed a dance beat into that just so happen to sound good on a large club sound system. 909's were real cheap at that time because the pros wanted digital samples.

It is a fact that all the boys back in the Detroit scene all wanted an 909.
Man when this thing landed it was like the aliens had landed on earth.....
Many actually predicted this machine would make history, in fact I think it was May himself who said these exact words.....
The brother was right.
By the way My 909 belongs in a museum it is so clean.

No worries I was just joking - hence the emoticons

There's no harm in opening more than one thread on music we like..

I take you guys are all younger though... I'm old school, using the old machines. I'm not familiar with the new gear like Elektron, although I'd love to try them some day.

Sure makes for a more interesting story than, "oops, I accidentally found a cool drum machine for making dance music". Fact is someone must of realized that. Maybe that person should be credited for its popularity in techno. I highly doubt that 909 was created with dance music as being the target market.

Would agree 100%, who would have anticipated such a simple machine would dominate EDM so much.

Becuase the truth is it has, not sure which other machine in EDM has dominated as much as the Roland 909...Could be wrong..
I would say the TB 303 Comes close maybe the 808 a little more with hip hop I would say.

All the best techno was made from "found" sounds. It really didn't matter where they came from, the only thing they had in common was a strong electronic kick.

This should be called "the proper techno thread" Detroit / euro styles are proper techno per the coining of the term "techno" by a Detroit artist named juan atkins on "techno City"
