NEW II

Last week I posted a song I made.
No I'm posting a making off-ish kind of thing, yay!!

I used Abletone Live 8.1.1.

Mainly because I had to, but also because it is awesome, looks neat and works pretty darn good once you get how it works. I still donnt really get how it works, but I understand the basics.

The funny thing is, it is a mixture between a live dj program and, a midi-style sampler, a recording program and a mixdown mastering program.

I had mingled with some other music making programs (FL Studio, Nanostudio, etc)  and some concepts where the same.

Fun to see how some programs say fuck you to conventions and do their own thing, not allways with succes, but ableton did it really good.

So, this is ableton:






For the bass of the song I used an Operator, with 2 harmonic channels.

Funny thing, when I let a friend listen to the song, her crappy laptop speakers didn't produce a trace of the bass, thats how low it is ;) I keep forgetting that a big ass sub woofer at your feet isn't that common.

The lead was fun. I used a simple chord scheme,  and just threw notes octaves around. I was honestly surprised at how well it sounded!





So, do you guys wanna hear more about the song or should I move on to other things?

  15. i too have background in music production, but i myself prefer to use Logic. I find that Ableton as a DAW is not as good Logic but i enjoy Ableton for DJing aswell. Really wanna hear the track BRO!!
