The Prodigy Breaks?

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

So after a little bit of messin around i came up with this

Anything remotely similar to the prodigy? Cause Prodigy's breaks are always so bassy and aggressive but my are all like chill.

What do you mean by retriggering?
There are quite a few methods of slicing breaks, the most common in a tracker is switching its start position and retriggering the break. Renoise also has a slicer built in, so you can get somewhere in between the methods. Like this :

You'll need to watch it full screen at high res to see what's going on, but he basically demonstrates the method on there. What's nice about the tracker method is you tend to chop less, so you get more groove (bits that aren't quite in time, or swing a bit) in between the retriggers.

Wow that's cool thank you so much.

Renoise is kind of confusing to me, cant get two breaks to sound right together even with repitching.

Any good tutorial videos or channels you recommend?

for renoise i recommend you to download this break pack, they`re already sliced up with markers and also will sync with song bpm if you enable beatsync in sampler.

Not to sound rude, but make your own Subject and ask.

Sorry, I just thought since this is about rave sound and breaks, and my post happened to be in the same subject, it was OK to ask about it here. Guess i was wrong (TRUMP voice)!
