Re: [fawm]my stuff

Thanks everyone for the replies.

I'm hoping I can throw some drums on my next one. Though, I'll probably just mute them again, hehe.

edit - didn't see this earlier, I use The Giant.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

#4.

horror film stuff! I'd like to hear the snare be a little more beefy, maybe boost somewher in the ballpark of 150-200hz and compress? and then a bigger verb on it, kind of dark. its just a little up front to my ears. esp with where the kick sits.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Thanks man. The snare is already directed(as a lot of the channels at the moment) into a verb and a comp/distortion vst). I actually turned the volume down on the snare a bit, just to make it fit a bit more.

I think I have a lot of eq/mixing to still do. The strings are gobbling up a lot of real estate, I think, but I don't want them to feel behind the mix.

Main goal to this point was adding as much as I could. Thank you again, I may try another channel on my sends and/or comp things more. I'm a bit shy with compression, so I try to hide the need as much as possible. One reason I hate drumming things out lately.

EDIT - As to the horror stuff? Fuck yea. Those are probably some of the catchiest melodies I love.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

u2: the intro in this is beautiful, makes me feel like im scouring a post apocalyptic wasteland and im ok with it. really terrific energy/mood. i think it would be neet to have a low sine sub bass somewhere in here for some added harmonic layers. other than that, what u got right here is great.
u3: beautiful piece again with a fantastic mood. love all of the incidental sounds accompanied with the piano layerd on top of what sounds like a field recording of your room or something. very personal piece, really like it.
u4: very cool track you got going here. sounds like a rob dougan track. really like the percs in this song as well as that funny little midi horn or w/e it is on some janky arpeggiator. great stuff but wheres u1?

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Thanks man. U1 died, wasn't worth posting. I've been trying to make stuff like 2 & 3 lately. And U4 has been fun. That horn is strings where I programmed some fast notes after bit of playing, jump up and down octaves. Then flattened it and did some copy/pasting.

#4: Cool track, B..certainly hear the movie connection with this. Can't really add anything to what's been said already..like it a lot, though. Nice one..can't wait to here where you go next.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

updating with u5(will probably do a lot more molesting of it tomorrow and upload another copy.

Still very rough but the idea is in there, I think.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

im listening to u5 before bed.. ill listen to the others tomorrow

at first it sounds like a simcity track but once the beat kicks in and the chords are laid out it becomes more cinematic... if thats what you were going for then bingo

the kicks ring well in the mix, no mud that i could hear.. technically it was a good mix.. doesnt sound like you put it through any squishy squishy.. which im starting to appreciate more, in this case your kick transients..

PS maybe a dab of EQ work for some richer highs, maybe even a little saturation.. just for me hehe i like a rich high band, especially with keys that are mixed in

more to come

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Start of u4 reminds me of that rob dougan clubbed to death track. Cool beat to carry the track along - kick has a nice crisp punch to it and those subtle panned cowbell-kinda sounds help bring some space to the track. Could kinda imagine some lyrics being busted over the second half.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

for some reason i really like the snare in u4 lol

i wanted to hear you flesh out the piano a bit more though, it sounds too looped and kinda low in the mix

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Thanks for the feedback. Actually updating U5 quite a bit. Taking the instruments and drums and redoing them completely as far as play.

U4, yea, the piano is two different sessions, I tried to take play from one and paste it over the last portion, make cuts and what not. It seems overally played out. WHen I come back to it, I may just start another piano + some other vsts and replay it differently all together.

Again, thank you for the feedback. I'll be hitting the other threads over the weekend.

i feel ya time constraints do abound. this is the same reason im staying away from the keys in mine, theres like an inherent obsession to perfect them

Re: [fawm]my stuff

I find keys + a lot of drums, for me at least, is hard to write anything for. So I tend to use shorter segments of a clip or 3. Possibly even mix and match with some cuts and what not. Would like to come back to it and re-write the keys altogether, or attempt to anyway.

I'm actually taking 5's strings and keys and fleshing something out at the moment. Pretty fun and sounds pretty neat. Well, different but I'm also drinking...So everything may sound better for no reason.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Feel like I'm spamming but, I had to post this. I'm actually going to keep the link for the initial version up as well(U5).

I did some programming on parts and built a 1.5 minute section from me playing the strings/keys all at once. This is only a section. I did remove a few hanger notes where my shitty finger movements hit though. Sort of cool, I think.

What are your thoughts?

EDIT - My last upload on 5. Will work on it over the weekend to make it a full track.

Because I'm sort of against uploading "finished" stuff, this is what I spent all of tonight on.



Pretty much a gap in a section. But, so much fucking fun.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Alright, I updated my first post. I'm hoping to work on music with drums and stuff in it this time. This is what I've been working on today, also very rough.

I'm going to attempt to not post everything, hold on to more and still unload them closer to the end of the month. This was a premature eja....Nevermind.

Re: [fawm]my stuff

Good stuff, man..really liked the sound of those drums..everything seems to sit pretty well together for a rough mix. It's got a late 80s feel to it..to my ears anyway. Nice one.
