Audio M.D., A Soundtrack for an Alien

00:0005:00

This is my big step I think. I've worked so hard on this one. I started sampling my own works and creating a library. This format is working out well for me. Everyhthing in this track was created by me. I have multiple synths layered on top of each other as well as the same drum loops with different effects. This is definitely the deepest track I've made and it wouldn't have been possible if I hadn't have tracked everything. As it is I've reached my limit. As of this moment I beleive that this is my best.

    I love that high pitched building synth, it sounds brilliant though I can't say I'm much of a fan of the rest of the track. Don't change it though if you like it how it is because I like to think that when I produce a track I'm not trying to please anyone but myself and I like to try other stuff when possible.

    Thank you. I feel ,ore comfortable after making that last one. I think I'm ready to go im ready to go in my direction now. I prefer dark but I needed to see how things worked. I'm beginning to understand it now. So my next track will be under a new name I think. Hopefully, from there I can move forward making the sounds I want to make.

    It's funny though because the name I've chosen isn't what I thought it would be. I blame the season. I've chosen *Samhain* (Pronounced /ˈsɑː.wɪn/, ) for those that don't know phonetics I can say this ....Saw-win. It's the basis for Halloween. It's an ancient celebration coming from Celtic culture. But the basic celebration of the day of the dead is universal. This comes from our previous notions of a belief in nature, Who I am as a person and what I'd like to express is derived from that belief. Hence my first track. I'm done with all out experimenting. I want to start making music from my heart. The name Samhain fits me better.

    I need more listens! My face book thing isn't working as much as I'd hoped.

    It's a good idea to bounce to the library if the load is getting to be too much. Also there are a lot of things I've done the same way - had a draft that didn't work by itself, but a piece could work somewhere else.

    In your own ear, it always sounds good LOL. It's a phenomenon that fuels shows like american idol where a person thinks they are awesome, but really aren't when compared to the world. I'm not saying that about this track or you Starz LOL...just making an observation...I think...>_>

    I did the samples because I was close to maxing with just the original parts. Loading everything into the library and then sampling it allowed me to do more and layer the same synth set up into different parts as well as the drums. There at the end I have the same 2 drum lines running from 2different drum machines and all 4 using different effects. If you listen closely those drum noises are constantly shifting sounds, patterns and frequency. I personally love subtle, complex changes that you have to listen to carefully to hear. Like when the 1st part and 2nd part meet most people will naturally concentrate on the high sound but then there is a separate low sound that fades into it at the end. That sound I created just for those 2 seconds. I was very pleased with that. My favourite parts of this track are the string rise, those knocking drums, (Because they were created from a repeating bass drum and not rim shots) and those little spastic segments in the final escalating drums. I think there are some cool sounds there. The bass line, well not really electro, is sold I think and the overall sound fits well I think. But I've listened to it so much I'd probably like just about anything that was there at this point. Lol. If you want to see what I did you'll have to go through my templates, here the original and compare them to the track. Some of the samples I made from drafts though and some were done from the same set ups, recorded and then changed for the next one.

    I really wish this wasn't all just samples. I really wish that I would have been able to see what you did with each instrument, just to see how complex tis really is. One thing that I really think you should try to do is to have more contrasting sounds like the hipitched synth and bass synth at the beggining. I would also like to hear a fast paced song with like many drops and progressions..
