I posted in Garritan Orchestral Strings forum and was told I could post here also to get some feedback so here I am...
I got GOS a few days ago and I would love to get some feedback on something Im trying it out with.
Im just a happy amatuer & have no musical education/knowledge so go easy on me and dont expect to much from it, hehe
Ive never done music like this before so don´t expect to much [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
(see link below to my electronic country-a-go-go project [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )
All tips & tricks are welcome. I have crap speakers so mixing tips are also welcome.
Hey. Excellent work so far. I enjoyed it a lot.
It certainly depends on where you want to take this piece, but I wouldn\'t mind the song taking more time to develop it\'s themes. However, my friends often tell me I take too long, so take that with a grain of salt!
Please share what all you used to do this. I liked the scratch noises and the synths. I didn\'t think the drum kit was quite as interesting as the rest of the tune. (The sound, not the programming!)
Im glad you enjoyed it [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I made it in Cubase SX. Only had it for about a week but so far I LOVE it.
The scratch noises comes from ProSamples cd Vol 23 Trip Hop. Its a cheap sample cd I bought from bestservice.de. Also had a DJ friend of mine made some scratches for me but havent used them yet but I made a HALion instrument with them.
If you or anyone wants them you can get it here: http://medlem.spray.se/kobraism/music/Scratchism.zip
The drums are also from a ProSamples cd. Its a loop Ive cutted/sliced etc in Cubase SX.
Its now possible to make REX files inside SX. I´ll give the drums some more time. Actually gonna give the whole song some more time. Far from finished yet, but then again I guess I shouldnt spend too much time with it either, hehe
