[QUOTE=Andokool12;37080456]This might be lame, but to make up for the fact that lots of my tracks are done in audacity these days and can't be done "live" (all together at least), I've written a program that allows me to recreate the tracks on the numpad. Basically I prepare a song by cutting out its individual layers into .ogg files and assigning them to keys in the program. Here's an example of a track on it: [video=youtube;lH6LPKSGA-I]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH6LPKSGA-I[/video] I dunno, it's pretty ghetto, thoughts? I'm interested in doing my more recent tracks live some day (lots of earlier tracks were recorded live so they are "easier" to do live) but I want to maintain some level of control as opposed to DJing (not that there's anything wrong with that). Any suggestions for existing software I can use that could somehow allow for more, or maybe just stuff I could add to this?[/QUOTE] Not sure if I'm misunderstanding, but Isn't this exactly the stuff that ableton live does?

I still have to work that out [QUOTE=Electroholic;37080615]Not sure if I'm misunderstanding, but Isn't this exactly the stuff that ableton live does?[/QUOTE] Is it? I don't know DAWs, but thanks!

[QUOTE=phytocide;37092049]beep boop tracker tune love song (?) [url]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/14194692/music/tracks/repulsion.mp3[/url][/QUOTE] I really like the phasing effect you have with the blippity blop skippidy bop! One thing I would change is drumming, they need to be just a bit louder, or EQ'd so that the snare and kick punches through better through the buzzy bass you have. Please make it longer! [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/grungen-lagann-1[/media] So here is the lovechild between my love for cool stoner music and also grunge, this song in particular is really influenced by Alice In Chains song "Would?" with a cool bass with a groovy tone.

I was making an orchestral track, but then it ended up as something entirely different. :| [URL="http://mordi.ziphoid.com/data/music/work_in_progress/funky_track.mp3"]http://mordi.ziphoid.com/data/music/work_in_progress/funky_track.mp3[/URL]

[QUOTE=Speedfalcon;37068928]My first post here, I haven't produced music in a while and I hope to continue making atmospheric/moody tunes.

[editline]7th August 2012[/editline] I was a Dj for the first time in my life on Friday. I messed up a lot, was nervous, and made it as easy as possible. I also broke the play button on my CD DJ... so I'm going to need another one of those. I don't think anyone cares. I made the last track on my album before I make a real dj setlist. Sampled one of my favorite movies. Can you guess what one? [media]http://soundcloud.com/timehive/a-crowded-shelter-in-the-rain[/media] Do you think it should keep going or stop there? I don't know how to make it more intense without overcrowding it.
I love the vocals they are nice, I love the arp at the end, the subtle pads and that together sounds so lovely, I think it should go on from there [media]http://soundcloud.com/its-a-kid/piano[/media] And my shitty shit

Getting a little bit of reverb on it it might make the sound bigger too.

[URL="http://www.facepunch.com/"]Listen to Soundcloud recording[/URL] [URL]http://soundcloud.com/timehive/a-crowded-shelter-in-the-rain[/URL] [/QUOTE] How about playing that lead thing an octave lower, that might make the sound a bit bigger? The distortion also sounds a bit thing, you might want to try the hot-fi setting on the Imperfection plugin and then use the "Analog-o-matic" setting on the bootEqMKII plugin after that.

A piano piece, a WIP still [media]http://soundcloud.com/hobo4president/dark-piano[/media] Sorry I would post comments on some tracks but facepunch is fucking up for me for some reason. I'll do it if it decides to start working again.

[URL]http://www.delamancha.co.uk/imperfection.htm[/URL] [URL]http://varietyofsound.wordpress.com/downloads/[/URL][/QUOTE] That just made it incredible scratchy and hard to listen to.... I had to take off the imperfection. Putting it down an octave makes it non-existent. I like the bootEqMKII though. Thank you very much I don't understand how to make it sound correct without too much reverb...
Ah too bad, imperfection usually does the job for me.
I'll keep messing with it for a while and post again later tonight.

Second song I don't know what to make of really! Today is good day, I achieved something that my friends say sounds like Testament [media]http://soundcloud.com/caseykay-1/mist-of-blood[/media]
