    Talking Hi there!

    Hello members. I would describe myself as moderately capable with Java, but I've still yet to make anything impressive. I'm also familiar with AS3 and C++.
    My interests are audio application (VSTs, DSP, etc.) and game development (3D especially). Thanks for having me!

    Hello FunkyTecknician. Welcome to the Java Programming Forums!

    Tell me more about your interests in VSTs..
    I produce in Cubase 5 and have always been interested in possibly writing a VST plugin.

    Thanks!

    I am also a producer, but I use FL Studio. For a while now I've made my own plugins using SynthMaker, a VST development kit which uses graphical modules instead of traditional programming to construct generator and filter plugins. I find that it is great for drafting an idea, but if you seek to optimize your plugin or use complex DSP filters (such as convolution), code is necessary! Right now I'm clumsily putting together a random music generator that can load in VSTs and create unpredictable music.

    Sounds good. I've used FL Studio.

    What type of music do you produce?

    I've used SynthMaker in the past but I'm more interested in programming something unique from scratch.

    It's definitely something I'm going to look into..

    My professional career is actually production. I'm a pop/urban music producer.

    For me, SynthMaker is a must as the synths I create are attempts at modelling physical acoustic instruments, such as a guitar. I find that it's too hard to tweak and nitpick the timbre of the sound in a pure code environment as I'd have to compile every time I made an adjustment. Once I create the schematic in SynthMaker, it's easy to convert to code as SynthMaker is merely code in a modular, graphical format. Using code is a must for me as it's sometimes a lot faster, usually easier to optimize, and not as tempermental as SynthMaker (SM has a propensity to crash).

    Cool sounds good. I will have to look into SynthMaker a bit more!

    I am by no means a professional producer, it's just something I have done as a hobby for the past 8+ years

    I like to turn my hand to all styles of music but I mainly produce urban genres such as hiphop/dnb/dubstep. Mainly to please DJ friends of mine.

    Nice! Dubstep is very big around where I'm from. I've heard from many that it's quite difficult to produce. I'd very much love to know how they create that characteristic mechanical bass drone. If you've been at it for 8+ years, you must know your stuff!

    You have an example of this sound in a tune? I'll see what I can do!
