NEW

I MEAD MUSIC!!!

I followed an optional course called Sounddesign. It was not what I was expecting to be honest. I thought it would be about sound design in general, as in gamesounds, menu sounds, overall ambiance. Sounds boring in hindsight, so I'm glad it was about making sick beat in Ableton Live instead!!

Here it is:






Live 8.1.1, the Ableton live version i used has some really nice features. I used if before, but never really got into it and couldn't put myself to make a complete song. Having to for credits is a great motivator aparently ;)

I used samples I scoured from various places in the web. I also used various tutorials from here and there, youtube is a great source!

The synth you hear is called Sylenth1. Its a great synthesizer with some really neat options. The lead and the base use it. As for the melody, its a rather simple chord scheme arpeggiated. YOUTUBE LINK
I did the lead by hand but used Ableton's native arpeggiator plugin for the bass.

I might do more with Ableton, let me know what you think of the song and whether you's like to hear more from it!!

  1. It's not bad, however, kind of slow. You need a bit of a beat to it. :)

  10. My only really critique is the intro. You get me interested in it, but then you drag it on for too long. I get bored and then finally the interesting part of the song kicks in. Other than that you have some good beats. good job

  11. Pretty good. I really like the visuals on this one, it actually goes with the whole vibe of the track.

    I liked the breakdown at the 1:40 ish mark. I also liked when you started using the clap, had real nice bounce to it.

  12. Yes this is pretty damn good. One thing to try is adding more layers to it so even during buildup, breaks, there's still more going on.
    Short and sweet track, though

  20. The first 30s of the Song remind me of a clockwork orange. Maybe I could recommend the movie in the future.
