    Should i work out some liner notes?

    Edited:

    Also it looks like you have my song title as Holy Helix and the artist name as REM Relapse. It's supposed to be the other way around.

    For kick drums(bass drums uncommonly) I would use a kick drum sample.

    For snare drums, i would use a snare drum sample.

    What's with your obsession with soundfonts

    I'm sorry, but I need to use soundfonts because the program can only use them. I'd play the snare stuff myself (bit rusty, I am though) but I don't have any mics.

    Soundfonts blow, specially the free ones. Use a VST.


    Also sent Pepin my song

    It can easily be said that there are no good free drum kits. The ones that exist can't compare with the professional ones.

    Tbh you can always just cut up known breaks, then layer the kicks with ones from free kits for a good low end, and snares too for some sparkle, then program them without quantisation, use somewhat large velocity changes and switch up some sample occasionally. Then send it all to a bus reverb at appropriate levels, hipass it at 90hz. There, that's my routine. There's ofc compression adn eqing but that's individual for every different sound. And usually I use a bus compressor too.

    You can do a lot with samples, you can make them sound real good, but you can't make them sound like someone is playing a real drum kit. Why this is should be pretty obvious. But a big trend now, especially in pop is not ever deal with live drums, which is perfectly fine and much easier to work with.

    Dave Pensado had a tutorial on working with drum samples.

    It is possible to get close to live drums, check out some dj shadow and stuff, but you are right, definitely won't ever sound 100 % real.

    I never said they would sound more realistic, maybe natural is a better word. Just trying to say how you can spice up some free samples

    Edited:

    Good video btw, thanks

    Ok, I'm going to change the gift for doing bass/guitar on that track of mine and instead, I'm offering the two humble bundle packs as an incentive to Promote this album!

    The top two promoters (Those who gets us the most listens from a source (or sources), such as a website or link in a blog) will get One Humble Bundle Introversion Bundle Pack, and you will recieve the whole package since I paid $15 each.

    After a week we'll see how many listens we have, we'll check where most of the listens come from and all you have to do is to prove that you linked it in X or at Y and if you've managed to score us a lot of listens, you'll get the pack!
    on top of this I am adding the new humble bundle #4 which includes cave story+ and Bit Trip Runner among others
    http://blog.humblebundle.com/post/14...indie-bundle-4

    whoever gets the second most will get something else as well

    What's the order of the songs? I will begin adding them to the back, and working on linear notes.

    Edited:



    Here's a sketch of the linear notes.

    The order is yet to be determined. Tomorrow is the final deadline I believe and I'll probably announce the order the day after.

    Didn't find anything about that in the OP.

    I'm doing the volume leveling in mastering. Nothing fancy, no compression. The -3db rule is a bit pointless because of this.

    the james bond one is the only one that is actually amusing and not weird or awkward.
