New version [media]http://soundcloud.com/sauliii/pulmonary-hypertension[/media] my second song ever
Tried the acapella thing again. Spent barely time on it yet so it's a bit shit, but you get the gist. I'm struggling to fit a chord progression in there too, so any suggestions are welcome. [media]http://soundcloud.com/awesomesaucee/one-too-many-wip[/media] EDIT: Now has a better progression. Woo EDIT 2: added the rap from boppin' as a placeholder until I find another good one and added some more stuff
[QUOTE=Larry_G;37976500]Got my first record deal today, I am now officialy signed to High Intensity Records. ([URL]http://www.highintensityrecords.com[/URL]) Expect an official debut EP release somewhere in the near future! This is great[/QUOTE] congrats man, you deserve it. Your stuff is great. By the way your Holocene remix was easily the best out of all the ones I heard from the competition, it was a shame you didn't get it.
[QUOTE=Pooplari;37982584]New version [media]http://soundcloud.com/sauliii/pulmonary-hypertension[/media] my second song ever[/QUOTE] This track has potential but the main issue is that it's trying to convey two or three different moods that really clash with eachother. The fidgety guitar is a much more dancey funky mood and that synth is trying to convey a trance-like dreamy thing, sounds really awkward. Try it without the synth, I'm well interested in hearing the song simply without that and then going from there

Plus they sound like they're in a different key.
[QUOTE=BigSmokeDawg;37972659][MEDIA]http://soundcloud.com/bsmoked/far-away-friend[/MEDIA] Finished my latest song! What do you think?[/QUOTE]I'm digging this! Maybe make the bass more present in the mix. I don't actually know much about rock/metal music, but it feels kinda thin
This is Drone, right? [video=youtube;MwXi5LQf8Bg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwXi5LQf8Bg[/video]
[QUOTE=Andokool12;37986983]This is Drone, right? [video=youtube;MwXi5LQf8Bg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwXi5LQf8Bg[/video][/QUOTE] I'd just call it ambient and keep the word drone to describe the type of synth. It's easier that way. It's a really pretty synth btw
Edited one of my old songs and included a new piano intro :v: [media]http://soundcloud.com/morganhicks/morgan-hicks-fun-in-the-ocean[/media]
[media]http://soundcloud.com/broken_kneecaps/why[/media] There was this documentary about an autistic man called Matthijs, he's going to be evicted from his home and does not know how to cope with it at all. This is the scene where a woman tells him he's going to get served that day, against some agreement he made earlier and he gets desperate. I tried to make a portrait of this man and this scene and I hope you take the time to listen and maybe comment. I'm pretty sure the documentary "De regels van Matthijs" (Matthews rules) is going to be translated pretty soon and you should check it out if you can.
Any suggestions on making string samples sound more realistic/nicer?

[media]http://soundcloud.com/its-a-kid/awyea[/media] For some reason the first minute of my songs never render, it's annoying, but the beginning was really weird anyways.
So jealous of everyone getting signed... But I am also extremely happy for them and wish them the best! Just got a new PSU yesterday, so back to music! EDIT: I updated the 108 BPM song I am working on! Here's what I have so far (still have tons to work on): [media]http://soundcloud.com/bull04/more-108-wip[/media]

[QUOTE=Lipschitz;38002049][media]http://soundcloud.com/kithd/hkh[/media] [media]http://soundcloud.com/kithd/pi[/media][/QUOTE] Pi was pretty cool
[QUOTE=Andokool12;38001322]Tried a low pass?[/QUOTE] I'm pretty that'd ruin the samples wouldn't it? They're from a proper orchestral library so they're very good samples. But they're dry.
[QUOTE=chaz13;38002402]I'm pretty that'd ruin the samples wouldn't it? They're from a proper orchestral library so they're very good samples. But they're dry.[/QUOTE] What about a stereo enhancer? I'm sure you've already thought of these things though
[QUOTE=chaz13;38002402]I'm pretty that'd ruin the samples wouldn't it? They're from a proper orchestral library so they're very good samples. But they're dry.[/QUOTE] If you mean more crisp, I'd say maybe raise the EQ on the higher end of the spectrum. Just a bit, that will bring out the crisp sound a bit more.
[QUOTE=chaz13;38002402]I'm pretty that'd ruin the samples wouldn't it? They're from a proper orchestral library so they're very good samples. But they're dry.[/QUOTE] Well I dunno, I guess I have a different idea of what they sound like in the first place
[QUOTE=chaz13;38002402]I'm pretty that'd ruin the samples wouldn't it? They're from a proper orchestral library so they're very good samples. But they're dry.[/QUOTE] Add some reverb with a dash of high end EQ maybe?

Maybe make the bubbling sounds less invasive tho. Or have just a little less of them
[QUOTE=Xploder;38003190]Add some reverb with a dash of high end EQ maybe?[/QUOTE] When it's dry always add some reverb. Reverb solves everything...EVERYTHING.
[media]http://soundcloud.com/wauterboi/systemization-as-of-10-12-12[/media] The weird gliding synth in the very middle just before it goes into the "Level 2" transition is going to change. That synth is a bit awkward right now, but I like what I have so far.

There needs to be some minors or some audible conflict... Or something. There has to be some representation of the problem. Also, I'm pretty sure this is clipping, but I could be wrong.
I started jogging today, and some of the views in my town just gave me incredible inspiration. [media]http://soundcloud.com/morganhicks/morgan-hicks-7pm-in-the-caf[/media] and plus, I've been listening to SO much Burial lately...
Coming up with lyrics is freaking tough!
