Like the title says, my background is in rock/metal production, and thus my plugin library/gear is tailored to those genres. Besides some more universal Waves stuff such as SSL Channel, CLA-76, and L3 Limiter, the only thing I have that would remotely work for EDM production would be Absynth. I have quite a few different drum libraries as well, but again, those are more suited for rock/metal stuff. Besides those plugins, I have a 16 input interface/7-inch monitors and an Akai MPK Mini MK3 on the hardware side. I also have a pretty large collection of guitars/basses and amps/effects pedals that I regularly record with.
I am looking to make my own music in the realm of Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Nosaj Thing, etc. so any suggestions for stuff to help me nail that style would be awesome. I feel like I can handle the “melody” side of the music pretty well with what I have, so I guess I’m more concerned about where to start in terms of drum libraries/beats/samples/etc. for this music. Thanks in advance!
