Libre Music Challenge #19: Odin 2

Post by nyxeles »

Welcome to the Libre Music Challenge #19, for the month of June 2023.

Note: The deadline for this challenge has been extended up to the end of the weekend on July 2nd.

This is a friendly contest where we make music with free (libre) software exclusively. Everyone is welcome to join, at any skill level.
This is a place for learning and sharing knowledge, and an opportunity to explore creativity through limitation.
But most importantly, we just hope it inspires you to make some music!

The challenge for this month is to make a track using only one synthesizer: Odin 2.
You can obtain it for free from here: https://thewavewarden.com/en-gb/pages/odin-2

All sounds must be created with this synthesizer. You can use as many instances of the synth as you like, and you're allowed to use all of its features, including the built-in presets. Using samples (e.g. for drums) is not allowed, but you're allowed to bounce the synth tracks into audio for convenience, as long as there is no major alteration.

You are allowed to use any DAW and any effect plugin, as long as everything is free software.

Happy music making!

Here is my contribution for this month's LMC:
https://soundcloud.com/sg75_2/to-walk-among-men

The "Deep Triads" preset in Odin2 got me.
However, "Deep triads" produces just minor chords.
So this song has just minor chords, which makes it so strange.
The only thing that at least somehow worked was to glue the minor chords together in chromatic mediant relationships.

G'day, Arkforest here.

My submission is called:

Tu Vai Morrer

Image

I named this track after something some CS:GO pro typed into chat at a meme CS:GO match.
As you can tell, I had a lot of fun with it. All synthesised, no bouncing.
It is mainly a trance song, with a surprise at the end! Listen more to find out! :O

Here it is on SoundCloud with a free download link on it (superior FLAC quality!):

https://on.soundcloud.com/K5ayU

Here it also is on YouTube (currently private, will either make public later or make a new video for the same track later):

[LEGACY LINK REDACTED]

Here is a download link for the project files, compressed into a ZIP file
(the track is also in the export folder here. It is the one that is not stuffed into a "bin#{integer > 1}" subdirectory in the export folder):

https://mega.nz/file/9XZTCYqD#vNdhHNTwr ... xa-aGlWxp8

Here is a list of the software I used (How do I format it as markdown?):

This may or may not be the final submission, depending on whether I return to the project to make further finishing touches that I stupidly forgot.

If private media links (that are publicly accessible via linuxmusicians.com) are not allowed, I will make them public on the respective hosting sites, on request.

EDIT: I have removed the vocals that were originally in the track, to comply with the rules. This is not reflected in the project files at the moment, since it's just an easy muting of an audio track.

Sorry it's late, been out of town and kept losing track of time.

Audius link (with FLAC download): https://audius.co/johnthebard/paise-lmc19-1

Made with Ardour 7.4 on Gentoo

Initially started as a heavier track and I made a part of that piano tone to write some chords and it just sounded so good over the break I went with it and added a melody. Removed all the heavy basses and such. I wanted to add more kicks snares and hats to do mix up but didn't have the time.

Hey all fellow librists !

Glad to be back there :)

Hopfully this month i had some spare time to make a thing for the famous LMC !!!

https://soundcloud.com/user-301824472/a ... al_sharing

But my Bespoke project became janky and at the end was dead :(

So i rushed this one yesterday for pleasure of the thing

It is this patch :
Image

I played the patch in Live condition using my akai midimix controller
recorded the multitracks in bespoke and then mixed all the thing in Ardour with the superb x42 plugins.

The patch in itself contains

As Synths
-Odin2 instances *9

As FX :
-TAL dub3
-LSP lilmiter
-X42 Parametric Eq *7
-DROW Distortion
-DRAGONFLY plate reverb
-Libre ARP
-TAL Reverb III

It was fun , i like ODIN2 really, sad it is a bit harsh with the CPU use :mrgreen:

Que le meilleur gagne :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Xsplaination:

I have distributed my scores evenly from top, 5, to bottom, 1. These
values are to be understood in the context of the competition, not in
the absolute. That is 5 does not mean it is the best song in the
world, nor does 0 mean it is the worst. Finally, my comments are
meant to be my honest opinions and when they are negative it is in
the hope that they may provide value. I will end by saying that I
have enjoyed listening to all entries, though some more than others.

Scores:

Code: Select all

+------------------+------------------+------------------+

Comments:

  • Arkforest, Tu Vai Morrer: I love everything about that entry. Top
    production from the chords, to the arpeggios, to the synth effects,
    to the build-up, to the break, to the over-the-top ending. I love
    in particular the chord progression before the final ending. Well
    done! The French-but-not-quite title is fun BTW. More evidence
    that techno music done by musically inclined artists is the best.

  • MyLoFy, Wodan: Nice effects. Nice transitions. Nice build-up.
    Nice mix. Nice composition. Solid entry.

  • nyx eles, Onwards: A somewhat game-like entry. Quite pleasing
    overall. Good mix. Fun melodies and chords. You handled
    acoustic dissonances like a champ. There's some arpeggio in the
    low-end towards the middle that sits very well in the mix, surely
    you must have used some EQ or HP with care to not interfere with
    the low-end, or you're just lucky.

  • Sahaathyva, Minimalism Rush: Too quiet. Nice nonetheless. It's a bit messy
    but I kinda like the imperfect quantization.

  • sg75, To Walk among Men: I love the creepy chords and their build-up. I
    like the Jean-Michelle Jarre style voice lead, unfortunately it has
    also problems. For instance, the lead phrase between 00:32 and
    00:34, not sure it is due the notes or the insufficient legato, but
    it's not very pleasant. At 00:39-00:40, there is some slight
    interference between the portamento of the lead and the filter
    envelope of the bass. When the creepy chords come in, the lead
    fits well however. I like the scratches-like sounds in the
    background and other effects. I like the increasingly tenser
    "give-all-you-got" ending.

  • John The Bard, Paise: the melody is not bad but a bit too simplistic or
    repetitive, and does not completely fit with the chord progression
    in my opinion. Nice jungle-like drums.

For the voting, we're trying out this new system: https://lmc.nyxkn.org/vote

If it's your first time using this, an account will be created on your first login. For the username you have to use the same username that you have here, on linuxmusicians (case-insensitive). Then you'll be presented with a playlist of all the tracks and you can assign votes.
If you forget your password let me know and I'll reset it so you can choose a new one.

@asublin Thanks for your votes and feedback! You don't have to vote again on the website. I can copy over your votes for you. But the voting range we are using is 1 to 5! So if you want, you can revise your votes, otherwise I'll just change the 0 into a 1.

I've corrected my scores. I can do the voting on https://lmc.nyxkn.org/vote but it allows me to vote for my entry. What should I/we do about that?

(EDIT: Never mind!

The vote you assign to your own track won't count towards the final score. But it will still appear on the scoresheet, for fun!

)

I don't get it. Am I supposed to create a new account there and use a new password?

I tried this, using my username "SpotlightKid", but I always get "Cannot register with this username". I also tried "spotlightkid".

I took part in LMC #3 way back, so according to the rules I should be allowed to vote, I think.

Thanks @asublin for the feedback, it is much appreciated!

I voted in @nyxeles's app.

Here is my feedback:

Arkforest - Tu Vai Morrer
Solid production. I like the vibe. The middle part is my favourite.
In the (two) chord progression in first thrid, the second chord feels a bit too dissonant.
The hardstyle outro rules, but is probably a little long.

asublin - Staroshiro
Super catchy main theme. I had it spinning in my mind during jogging once :)
The odd phrase length (10 bars??) makes it super interesting.
However, it wears off by too many repetitions. Perhaps a shorter song length can migituage this.
Pads in the outro are just great.
The percussion could be a bit less predictable for my taste, especially the cymbal lacks some variation and feels too long and too loud.

MyLoFy - Wodan
Catchy, I definitely can see sweaty party dance to it. I like the impactors a lot.
The kick could be a bit more like "not that kick again" ;)
The build-ups are almost a bit too fancy for the genre (too much variation, too less repetitions).
Thumbs up for the title (google it yourself, I won't spoil it :) Same holds true for the cover.

nyx eles - Onwards
I like arps and pads in general and especially in the section beginning around 1:25.
This section has great arps and a great vibe with a almost radiohead-alike feel for a couple of chords!
The percussion lacks some punchyness and variations.
The melodies feel a bit rushed and hastily put together at times.

John the Bard - Paise
Dude, this is too short!
Tasty delays. I like the syncopation and short pauses a lot. Boomy bass at times.

SahaaThyva - A Rush of minimalism Techno
Hypnotic bassline. Chilled, laid back vibes. Decent for a three hours rush :)
Indeed, the mix is a bit dirty, like e.g. the pads are too far in the background.
