    You could use Soundcloud. It's much faster and has [media]ing. :shobon:
    Yes, I know, but I like Tindeck because the songs are much easier to setup for sharing in my opinion.

    I've been learning Ableton recently and having a great time doing so.

    I'd love to hear anything you have to say that will help me get better.

    Also if anyone has any resources they've found to be helpful please let me know!

    This is the first time trying to make a track. I don't have an intro. Or an outtro. Or anything except the beat at the moment really, I just wondered if anyone thought I should continue with it or scrap it?

    And please tell me if I shouldn't post super incomplete stuff like this, first time posting in the thread :saddowns:

    Sounds good so far, but remember to keep the song structured. It's a WIP thread why shouldn't you post incomplete stuff

    Man, now I want the soundtrack.

    It sounds pretty cool, just...you know, like Deus Ex. Unatco's new Hong Kong branch or something.

    Well, the soundtrack can be found between the game files. They are in umx format (Unreal Music format, actually packed .mod files) and they can be opened in most module players/trackers.

    Gave me the image of goldfish and what they do during their lives. 2:45 is like when they are getting fed because goldfish love food. And then the gold fish are back to their regular day.

    I think I finally got something decent. Any thoughts?


    And something that I started a while back, but haven't touched because all my sample files got screwed up. It samples from Poison Ivy from Batman Arkham Asylum.
    Something distorted it at 0:35 too.


    I like this, it is a little repetitive, but it has a simplistic factor to it that makes it easy to listen to.

    Agreeing with Pepin that it definitely has an aquatic feel to it.

    Feels like there are a few skipped notes in there, and the main problem is flow and control.
    Never the less a good start.

    Fruity loops. I haven't been exposed to much in the way of programs yet.

    i like where you're going with the first one. reminds me of a skateboarding game on the playstation 1

    Edited:

    Same dnb/rock track I was working on before but with adjustments. (less reverb mainly)
    Oops forgot to put the intro on it, ah well.


    Ara Dubamb
    Any c&c on these 2 tracks would also be cool! They're more chillout than the other.
    I think ara is my favourite.
    ara is fucking marvellous, nice work son. i like that a lot.

    Have you ever seen 'How it's Made' on discovery channel?
    It sounds almost like the music they play when they show how stuff is being made...

    My friend wanted an acoustic version of something we wrote so he can sing it so I recorded it today with a little solo. He wanted it to be more free form so I didn't use a metronome. A few little glitches where I hit the mic a little bit, but whatever.

    Here is the demo recording. Yes, he can't sing very well.

    http://filebox.me/view/bvyykvhkm

    My baby's in the kitchen
    and she making meaty pie.
    It's smelling so delicious
    that it's giving me a high

    She asks me for assistance
    in getting out the food
    It's hot inside the oven
    but I don't need no tool

    She asks me what I'm doing
    says it's hotter than it seems
    Then she offers me protection
    And I turn to her and scream

    Real men don't use oven mits
    they're like a glove, but they never fit
    They're always too big or always too small,
    Real men should never use them at all.

    Oven mits from the pits of hell
    God cast them down from Heaven and with Satan they fell.
    But he couldn't stand them and they got in a brawl
    So he sent them to Earth, and now they hang on my wall

    Oven mits, oven mits,
    oven mits, UH-VIN MITS. (x2)

    Not very useful
    -OVENMITS-
    They hurt my brain
    -OVEN MITS-
    I still get burned
    -OVEN MITS-
    THEY DRIVE ME INSANE!
    -OVEN MITS-

    Oven mits, oven mits,
    oven mits, UH-VIN MITS. (x2)

    Real men don't use oven mits
    they're always too busy taming wild starfish
    Just grab that hot pan straight out of the oven,
    And get yourself some hot meatloaf lovin'.

    Real men don't use oven mits
    they're like a glove, but they never fit
    They're always too big or always too small,
    Real men should never use them at all.
    Here is what I did today.

    This is how I usually do it:
    1) Come up with a chord sequence.
    2) Make a bassline based on the chords.
    3) Make a drumbeat.
    4) Add pads/strings/rhythm instrument.
    5) Add a lead melody/vocals.
    6) Harmonies.
    7) Details.

    Edited:

    1) Make a fat bassline
    2) Make a drum beat
    3) Add pads/stabs
    4) Add vocals/effects
    5) Tweaking and mastering

    Depends. A lot of times I come up with a concept and expand upon it, do an outline about what each part will be about, and then either write the lyrics or the music. I'll write the music first if I envision something musical. I'll write the lyrics first if it is more the concept of the song that matters. I try pretty hard to have the music tell what is going on, without having to rely on the lyrics to tell you what is going on. I'll usually record vocals last.
