im mostly concerend with the drums and bass aspect of it, i have a guitar for the rest.

TLDR: how do guys like aphex twin make their beats
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

take a sample or something, pitch shift it, change the tempo, and thats about it, for starters anyway.

This is definitely one of the more complicated genres to compose for, especially on a mac (for some dumb reason). Check out ableton live and find a bunch of tutorials for it. I'm still trying to figure it out, but it has everything you need.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

get Logic. It's the best thing for mac for stuff like that. Aphex Twin uses Max/MSP, which is a complex graphical programming language. and I think it's PC only.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

Check out this amazing song I made on Garageband

That's pretty much all you need for epic techno songs.

As a disclaimer: I don't actually listen to any techno at all...

that sounds almost like a commodore 64 SID chip. There are quite a few plugins that can come close to emulating that.



i found a standalone one for mac called SIDplay, its downloading right now, maybe this is what i need.
