Re: My first song

The title of this thread, "My first song," is so ridiculous, it makes me laugh every time. What was I thinking?

My sixth song:

Re: My first song

Many thanks, Jerrold! I will take "decent" any day of the week! You're officially the first person (besides Concept - http://www.ilovecubus.co.uk/fsolboard/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1020 - much love!) to say anything about my music, besides people I know, so that's pretty exciting to me. What are you work...

xerkon - second track

New track, this one I started with 20 or 30 little clips of a guy talking and built all the "instruments" from speeding up, slowing down and layering, among other things. The only effects I used were reverb and a stretching effect. It's not too shabby, considering. https://soundcloud.com/xerkon/song...

Re: Produced some tunes + mix page

Wonderful! For some weird unknown reason I kept picturing myself on a slab in an alien lab (bonus for the rhyme!) waiting to be operated on. Made me want to say, "I think I'm a bit afraid," in the best of ways. Did you sample from the track? Which version of it?

Re: My first song

Thank you so much, Concept! It could certainly use some more work but I'm pretty happy with it for a first track. Some of the rhythm parts were me on my djembe which I recorded with a Blue Yeti mic. Everything else was done on my super-duper totally rad $99 dollar Casio keyboard running through my i...

Re: What are you playing at the moment

I would love to revisit System Shock 2. A wonderfully atmospheric game. And I have such fond memories of Half-Life, the first FPS I ever played. No, wait, the second. I started with Duke Nukem. That's funny, I had forgotten about that. If anyone likes turn-based strategy, Alpha Centauri is quite goo...

Fun Rythm Game (maybe it's just me... :o )

I'm probably not the first to do this, but the other night I started tapping "Lap" on my phone in time to the beat of god-only-remembers what I was listening to and saw that it only takes a few accurate taps to know the exact bpm of the song. PLUS, you can make a game of it with your friend by seein...
