You probably know this
Great as always. actually this is even better!
You can now create an artist page on Spotify and manage it yourself. The options are pretty limited at this stage but all the same, it feels like maybe an alternative to soundcloud , bandcamp etc, ?
The option of a slightly less clunky way to post links is hopefully a feature coming soon. At the moment, you get taken to the page if you click on the Spotify avatar thingy.
Play arrow just gives a few random seconds of a track. No means to change any of that right now.I guess it will get better.
Chucked a dark driving garagey cross techno tune together on friday night......
New house tune I've written recently (I have dispensed with the computer and am just using an Electribe, Drum brute and Minilogue)
Our new one. Deep house all the way.
Buy Music Owns You by Damien Exton on MP3, WAV, FLAC, AIFF & ALAC at Juno Download
But they've clearly based their name on the notorious Welt Weit! Besides it a nice jump around tune!
Is this the right thread, on the right subforum?
So, I got a 2nd hand Novation Circuit (as a muck around thing, rather than an actual instrument, and to wean me off playing computer games against sweary twats). First drum machine/synth etc. It's great, even if it needs a child lock to prevent my almost 5 year old daughter from doing migrane inducing drum patterns. Never really been into using a mouse to make sounds/loops/squeltchy bass-lines with, but I like the button pressing, knob twiddling, no computer screenness of the circuit a lot.
It came with Ableton 9 Lite Live. Which seems quite limited (i.e. small amount of tracks etc).
What DAW do people recommend? Are there any good free/cheap ones?
Oi! Aphex Twin releases stuff his kid does on Soundcloud all the time. Let your child embrace the noise
Having a look online I really don't think you will find anything for free that will go better with it than even a lite version of Ableton, the limited versions of stuff usually better than cheap shite, plus if you look up any questions on it online it's always Ableton that is mentioned as the DAW, there's a template on there for it I think? Try Audacity which is free but I think will dissapoint, not sure what else is around these days I am getting oldish !
I'd be ok with embracing the noise, if the noise was less gabba.
Also Ableton originally a live instrument and is still set up as such, so if you want to piss about it's the most fun, I found it good for both recording and mucking about but Pro Tools is my fave.
This is ACE
A bit Rezillos-ish.
After multple friends giving me digs about not finishing anything, I've decided to go through my (vast) back catalogue of unfinished tunes and finish the good stuff, and bin the rest. Here's the first:
I've put a couple up today, a dark jungle tune I'm just bored of looking at the project file:
And a bassline one...... although I haven't got a name for it, and I'm not sure if it sounds finished or not, would like to see what people reckon
Been tarting up the second tune in that previous post.
I like it - it sounds pretty damn good to me, the drums and breaks are spot on. I reckon if you added a tiny bit of variation to the melody in places and an additional bit of oomph to the bassline when it kicks in and possibly introduced an additional layer of midrange sound/ in parts to maintain interest from start to finish you would have a proper banger on your hands
Thanks, I'll have a bit more of a play
Decided to have a go - here's a ghetto house tune im working on, the first one I've 'completed'. Any helpful criticism welcome!
First thing I’ve finished for years.
Not new but been meaning to go back and finish it off. Can't quite work out what it needs but I feel something is missing... suggestions welcome
Sorry i deleted the upload and it wont let me edit the post - so here is the track:
I've just returned to writing stuff after a 35 year break. It happened sort of by accident, while I was listening through a few practice backing tracks, and suddenly found myself with a bit of a tune.
So I've carved up the backing track to fit the song structure, notated a few tune scraps (I bet they change), and sketched in some lyrics. It seemed somehow easier than the last time I tried this. Now I'm going to have to get a halfway decent mike so I can record the vocals.
I think I'd better try doing a couple more, just to make sure this isn't just some super-derivative flash in the pan
I did this as a musical birthday card for my mate
I thought I’d share a track that came out pretty well. It’s kind of a UK Funky/Bass thing with a sample from the rave classic ‘Sweet Harmony’ by Liquid.
May not be new to many...
amyl and the sniffers are in the UK this week! they got a few gigs on... think they're mostly sold out tho... we managed to catch them in hoxton yesterday afternoon, they are actually way better than i expected live, it is heavy! they are also v cool and kind to kids:
On behalf of Chazegee. We have as many differences as we do a love for the same good music. Album 7 is his best work yet IMO. Very accomplished stuff. Give it a listen.
He isn't work shy, and he is very, very good.
