Re: What I Did Wrong

[..] for me the critical question is whether I effectively communicated the emotion of the song. If the emotion works, then people (at least lay people) will forgive your warts for the most part. And my most important audience is myself. :) Amen, brother! I liked it, and the dry vocals - it just to...

Re: liftoff (instrumental metal)

Nice & phat! Exporting the song as audio and importing to ardour seems the most practical way, I'm doing it in 24b .wav, and a track per instrument if I want more control in the mix later. Hydrogen's midi export hasn't been reliable to begin with in my experience, plus it forces you to wire hydr...

Re: Open Source Drum Samples

I grabbed samples of a friend's DW set about 15 years ago. I'm more than happy to share them if anyone wants them (I use them in Hydrogen for my own stuff) but I failed to grab brush sounds. Anyone know where I can find some? Any drummers willing to make me some? If there aren't any license issues,...

Another loopy guitar sketch with some programming around it: https://clyp.it/r1ik2pa3 I'm currently having musician guests, that's animated me a bit, plus a lot of sun to run the solar studio in midwinter, hence the title. I just had that idea at breakfeast, and gave it 4h to get a (hopefully) groov...

Re: What if?

Hey, nice! The extra low end is strictly optional, one could, very carefully, but the mix definitely works well as it is, on big speakers and, importantly, the bass instrument has representations in higher ranges, too, and hence is well perceptible on device speakers or in-ears. The oneiric quality ...

Re: 1 more demo

Funny, that's one of my least developed recordings getting the most feedback :). In fact, the intention hadn't been recording an editable 'song' - for that, I'd have to break out the various midi channels my patch is generating, and their respective instruments - but rather demo-ing how guitar-to-mi...

Re: Guitar-to-MIDI conversion in Rakarrack/Guitarix?

I'm still faintly hoping for feedback from somebody who actually managed to get my example patch from a few posts up to fully run, not only because I love my patch so much, but also as a general exercise in portability of creative ideas involving more than 1 piece of software - but I'm happy that th...

Re: mtf8 - the smile

Hey, why did this song not get any feedback? We need to learn to listen to each other's stuff again here, not just publish it. I'm glad I did listen/download, this is not my home genre, but I find it great! Crafty work in many respects. I hear a wide cross-section of 80's influences (could be just m...

Re: The Hermit

The heavy guitar sound in itself is smashy & great, and I love the doubling effect, but in the context of this song, I'd probably try to take it back a bit - maybe by reverb, less treble or a bandpass straight away, lower volume -, and try to tame it - there's something with the attack, either s...

No prob, no depth was intended, if it is nice to have as a background, I'm totally satisfied, if additionally, it's amusing or groovy or both, then I'm already in the bonus zone.

next fast blast

I had sun today, and it resulted in enough solar/electric & creative energy for another fast sketch:

Sounds like Franz Ferdinand playing the Cumbia, now that I think about it. Could be the B-side to the Takiripitiki

Re: Guitar-to-MIDI conversion in Rakarrack/Guitarix?

another little demo of the one man band patch, 7/8 signature. https://linx.li/gitfap.mp3 What I can do, you can do, too (was actually the title of an obscure Roman Bunka song, coincidentally also using a 7 signature), the fx patch is there, I just tweaked synth sounds a little and made a different h...

Nothing special, just had jack_rec running while playing with my One Man Band 3.0 guitar to midi patch over a 7/8 beat.
