Re: Last Summer

Hi, since you commented on my salsa7, I took the liberty to dig around in your soundcloud account, and pick one piece at random, which was 'Last Summer'. Here's one from my collection that can connect: https://linx.li/softspring.ogg The 'bass' is again the baritone guitar, i.e. tuned down by a 4th. ...

Re: Salsa sketch in 7/8

Oh well, ambigous phrasing there , "programming and recording" means the percussion was programmed (loading carla-rack vst into reaper, and the sf2 bank found inside GMSynth.lv2 into that), all the rest are recorded guitars, the rhythmic melody (actually the trigger idea) and the bass line are loope...

Salsa sketch in 7/8

It's been a while, here's just some 'rehearsal room recording', errors incl., i.e. jack_capture -mp3 running while I was having fun: https://linx.li/salsa7.mp3 This time, the loops are programmed and recorded with Reaper for linux, running inside Carla, which is also doing the guitar sound, and with...

Re: "space"

Hey, thanks everybody, I'm surprised there is so much feedback! @milo the pitching-in of the synth is desired, Pat Metheny pioneered the idea, ZynAddSubFX allows tweaking many aspects of portamento @lilith, jonetsu ease of mixing is one of the downsides of this modular Carla approach, basically all ...

Re: Chopped & Screwed Hip-Hop/Rap Music

I just followed to the soundcloud player in your homepage, so I could compare original & 'chopped & screwed'. Transposing the song pitch is giving the voice an odd sound, I didn't get all happy with it when I tried the trick myself, 'like ET playing the kazoo' I found my voice was sounding - a real ...

"space"

https://clyp.it/smusdtns Nothing special, not even a song, just a jack_capture snapshot of how I'm currently having fun practicing guitar. 3 instances of Carla: one for the guitar sound, containing in itself 3 layers, one clean and 2 differently shaped dist.; one for monophonic guitar-to synth driv...

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 hydrogen...

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 switc...
