Collaborative Music Contest 2021

Icebox:

We did it. The biggest draft yet, probably my best too. Our goal for this was to push Audiotool to its limits, knowing that there would be other decent lineups in the competition too. All 3 of us went through lots of hardships in the process of making this track, which is what inspired us to write the lyrics. And when I say hardships, I mean real-life ones, not just in the studio. I’d like to thank my long-time friend SIREN for helping with this track, and as well as a good job to Declan for learning how Audiotool works in so little time! (We had 2 weeks to make this btw) He’s an awesome producer and y’all should definitely follow him.

dcln:

Yo guys! dcln aka Declan here. Leo has heard my sound design and he asked me to hop onto the project together with SIREN. I was super stoked to work with them as it was my first time working on Audiotool full time. Both Icebox and SIREN were super patient with me and showed me some useful tips and tricks around Audiotool. Who would’ve known we made my biggest AT draft ever! (possibly LOL) Forever grateful for Icebox and SIREN, hope you guys love this banger. Peace <3

SIREN:

Hey, it’s SIREN. The amount of chemistry and connection we had and that nostalgic feeling of working with icebox, legit made me feel like they are my friends in real life, this was one of the best collaborative experiences i had on AT and collaborative producing in general, there was lots of ups and downs while we were trying to make the track, but we pulled through.It’s the biggest track i ever worked on. I just wanna say I love these two guys (no homo) and I hope to work with them again in the future. Ok bye

Credits to @astrel for helping me with some of the bass design on a call. Credits to @leadenshrew and @Client for some decent presets too (we modified them don’t worry LMAO).

    Verse 1:

    Life is like a never ending melody

    Part of your head is so wasted in the remedy

    Always constantly figuring out how to screw you over

    Mentally, I tell the heads over your head and you go helplessly

    That someone breaking your pride that part of no one's sakespa

    But that's just your head damn I can see in your ass

    That you want to give up now don't you kid

      Part of your head is so wasted in the remedy = part of your head is always in a remedy

      -

      I tell the heads over your head and you go helplessly = Until it hangs over your head and you hope helplessly

      But that's just your head damn I can see in your ass

      -

      That someone breaking your pride that part of no one's sakespa = that someone will hear you cry, but part of the world says bye

      But that's just your head Damn, i can see it in your eyes (or ass if you meme)

    No matter what life is

    Continue the way you feel the most

    To add to the insanity of this track, remember when Icebox said he had hearing loss.

    THAT'S determination.

      Damn I can't believe y'all would remember! I still have it, I just got used to working with it

      I kinda developed a sort of 6th sense by being able to "hear" sounds and EQ through vibrations hehehe

    Idk if it's me but did this waveform's height go from 6'2" to 4'5"? What is happening?

    • User Avatar

      SIREN

      Yeah, that's what im talking about. Yep i think it's a bug

    • User Avatar

      Nyenoidz [long hiatus]

      I mean the height of the waveform, if that's what you mean by image. Not at all an impeding bug, but I've been noticing it quite often since yesterday.
