How hard is it to make breakcore using only free (as in freedom) software?



It's not hard if you know which knobs you got to turn. Getting to this point is a long process though, there is a lot to learn in music production.


Use Ardour, in my opinion it's the best free DAW out there. Learning might be a while compared to the workflow of other software, but strong.


Where can I learn it? I tried looking around but everything seems to be about recording instruments and I have none.



I would recommend learning the program instead of how to create music for a specific genre. Ardour is not incredibly popular and would be hard to find people making guides for what music type you need at times.


Damn that video is really impressive, he just made that cowbell sound from scratch like it was nothing.


This is what you want.


LMMS is nice but the "sample track" is very primitive and the AudioFileProcessor is useless for anything other than one-shots.


Sadly it's one of the best DAWs for what you're looking for. There's some people who are producing Electronic music on Ardour ever since they added midi support. But I believe that LMMS might serve better or at least make it easier.


Thinking about you when I found this


SeamlessR sound design tutorials are OK, but please don't take any mixing/mastering advice from him. He does some terrible stuff and gets all defensive when confronted about it… Go watch Dave Pensados videos if you want to learn about mixing (not focused on electronic music but the same concepts still apply).
Breakcore is mostly about breaks (duh) so you should download a lot of break drum loops and then find the right tools (DAW and vst plugins) that help with doing all the slicing, stuttering, effects and whatever. It shouldn't be too difficult, you just need to learn a DAW and that takes a long time. Also, if you want to make actual good breakcore, that takes even longer…


If you're interested in Breakcore, look at Renoise. It's what Venetian Snares uses.

It's a "tracker". A modern version of the original software that was available for Amiga, Atari and early PC for making music. The learning curve isn't steep. It's nearly fucking vertical. But once you've got the fundamentals down, it's an insanely powerful tool.

Along with VS, other users include, Enduser, B-Complex, ASC, I Am Robot And Proud, and others.


Renoise looks very intriguing, especially because of it's tracker workflow. But I've been wondering what are the actual strengths/weaknesses compared to other more mainstream DAWs? What makes it particularly powerful for IDM and, for example, breakcore?



Long time renoise User here. I would have recommended it already but >>1743 asked for free software, which renoise isn't, so keep that in mind.

Unfortunetely I don't know much about breakcore, but from what I've heard the sample editor and general interface is well suited for IDM/Breakcore. Maybe you should look at some tutorials for the sample editor to see what you can do with it and how fast the whole process is.


I don't mind renoise being non-free and I don't really make breakcore, but I do like making glitchy stuff with drums. I took a quick peek at the sample editor and it seems like it has very nice workflow for slicing breaks and doing crazy stuff. I'll propably try it when I have the time and see if I prefer the workflow over other DAWs.

Great list of applications to use for music production
