    Some light progressive house song I'm making, I know it's basic as fuck, but I really want it to be kind of chill.

    I should probably lower the tempo to about 120-
    I thought it was pretty good but it wasn't very chill. Baths http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=wheLGRop_8Y http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WY5dVMZcHNI

    Got bored so I tried to recreate a sound scene of an inside of a spaceship with an alien as a pilot.

    I just have to ask what is point with everyone saying "oh I was bored so i made this", it is like people try to defend themself from something by putting up layer of defense so they can just say "oh it was just because i was bored" when people say they dont like thing?

    I think you did well in making sound scene but I am confused by whirling wind I mean if he is in space then why is it sounding like he is flying through clouds? Other then that i think you made good sound that i enjoy listen to i think you should make this longer and also song on top

    I found guy who wants to collaborate in making music through internet, it is song he made but i play it both guitar and bass and drums

    What do you guys think?

    This! Also people who post stuff that's "very WIP". And I don't mean like 90 % finished tracks with people asking for some tips on a specific part or mixing, but when people post songs that aren't even half done. Like what the hell get your shit together. No listener cares what the reasoning behind the production was or what mood the producer was in. You are only fooling yourselves because it's a win-win situation for you. Seriously, if you can't even stand up for your own work, how are we supposed to take it seriously? Put some effort into it.

    i like this, it really stretches further out of the box than any of your other work; but one criticism would be that it stays a little static throughout. there's no variation, and with a song like that the same synth can become boring all to quickly

    try building the track up over time by making the synth slowly get heavier and heavier, or more epic or whatever

    I thought it was really fun. The drums were pretty cool.

    Any c&c?
    I like this song only thing I think is not good really is midpart it comes suddenly and sounds like you just said oh no I need section in middle to make break, I think that section can be removed from song and still have it sound good


    I think collab song is getting closer to sounding finished i put my guitaring in left and hes playing in right and also mastering is alot of fun i hope it sounds good to you guys

    your kicks are sounding alot better. perhaps compress it a tiny bit more, and bring the snare out quite a bit more. then get some awesome vocals over the top and you have yourself a hit!

    Thank you! I have now made compression on kick and brought up snare a bit too, There will be good vocals on top of this my friend who made riff will do both vocals and also solo in part where i play with cymbals like they are meant to be beaten to death
    i also made new recording of drums, it is pretty much same as old but now i tried with more dynamics in how i hit.

    Also here's a short musical loop I made.

    Edited:

    Just as I was going to export the song into wav for a second time at a lower volume (because I noticed some slight distortion in the track) I went back to my save and it was from hours earlier. The old version doesn't sound nearly as good.

    What I'm getting at is if someone could be so good as to fix the minor amounts of distortion in this wav, I would appreciate it, as audio editing is not necessarily my strong point.

    new song ive been working on. lemme know if the very last part (different rendition of the chorus) seems a little contrived, aside from the fact that i kinda fucked it up. also don't worry, ill start recording good-sounding music as soon as i figure out how to work my recently-discovered 8-track recorder. in the meantime, chill out and listen to some music

    i like this, but you and i know that the recording isnt exactly super high quality. it's difficult to kinda give any advice since the only thing i can think of is to just simply record it with something better, soundproof or just get rid of the white noise in the background

    and @ dead madman, very high quality. reminds me alot of zedd though it is a bit slow getting there


    now for my track. whey hey

    this is nice (and i can tell you're probably starting out), but try keeping the notes in similar and harmonizing keys, and make sure that the levels dont overpower eachother out (so play around with the volumes a bit)

    there is not alot i can say about this except this makes me happy and i know this is just sort of preview or wip but i think you should continue on this, if you want constructive critism i say continue with what you have done here because it works alot.

    today i listened to napalm death and this is my rendition of black metal sort of i think maybe have one more chorus at end (it is riff at end that is chorus) and then fade out like i do now

    Enough electro have some Neu!


    Basically I was listening to the first Neu CD today and thought hey I might try doing a Hallogallo inspired song like Porcupine Tree did

    it ended up pretty much a carbon copy of Hallogallo and I haven't finished but for a rush job I think it's pri cool, have to turn it up though

    thanks, and once again, im gonna be using an 8-track recorder for any future recordings. the audio isn't the greatest quality but you should still be well able to give me some criticism based on the song itself.

    I think buildup or intro is much too long i felt need to do something else after one minute so maybe cut out intro so main song comes in at say 40 seconds and have intro come back later in latter part of song almost like you do now but as way of building up last part?


    I worked more on song today mostly with intro and outro, now buildup in intro and breakdown in outro and also new solo at end that is not really audible. What do you people think?
