  1. title track demo is out! i made sure the pads are ✱massive✱
  2. updated again, there was a rhythmic mistake in 'metal mass' that was making the main loop hard to read. it was difficult to pin down what it was, but wow it sounds so clean now. 1st and 2nd jams tracks have changed too, i think you'll enjoy the swirling pads in the latter
  3. updated 'metal mass' and 1st jams track! preliminary tracklist for the EP is 1 hyper level 2 metal mass 3 wizard level (1st jams track) 4 get hyper! (2nd jams track) 5 slime ability (contains 3rd jams track as middle section)
  4. very excited to show these to you! these are the first demos for the 8th milkyheart EP, 'hyper level'. i was mainly exploring the sound design of extreme walls-of-sound compression. i think the tracks will end up being longer than usual and having a layered structure. i had a huge vision for this and worked thru the night (despite the mixtape also needing attention)
  5. i've had more sessions with this track and made improvements based on listener feedback. it's maybe 80% done at this point, the biggest issue is the lack of bass frequencies. the length has stealthily climbed to over 3 minutes in the process now's a good time to check it out!
  6. it says i have already changed my nickname this year. 😞 which is true, but that one-time restriction did not account for the forum upgrade.
  7. hey, my name has reverted back to what i registered as. is there no nickname option this time? i'd prefer to be known as milkyheart (my artist name) to avoid confusion
  8. it's almost criminal to get Renoise for just 50 euros for what a powerhouse it is. i couldn't write the stuff i make without it. flexible workflow if there ever was one. here's a real artist working that DAW: and poor old me banging rocks together:
  9. (loud as usual) WIP of second single from my coming mixtape, this one kicks off the whole thing. it's basically 3 sections that i've more or less bridged together. missing some instrumentation but the main ideas are in place i think
  10. yeah, i think that would really take this track to the next level!
  11. i just got this groovebox last week, it's super fun to toy around with. music just happens by itself thru happy accidents have you tried it, or are you interested in getting one?
  12. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0WDWloNyJE you might've heard an earlier version of this track on my April medley.
  13. (a bit loud) work-in-progress track. open to comments and inspiration on where to take this next
  14. Jump is my jam! glad to have you back
  15. looks like PICO-8 aesthetic
  16. thank you both. very good, i'm taking notes of all this.
  17. the reverb seems pronounced because of the high-frequency colour.. i'll look into it. i think the metal makes the sound a bit cartoonish, which can be fun. definitely the way to go for longer mixes. my first and second drafts are usually pretty restless because i'm just rushing to write down new ideas. okay some tracks are going to be like that anyway, but these have more structure planned for them.. darreichungsform notification squad thanks for list'nin'!
  18. a 7-minute medley of current WIP tracks, served rare. can consider this a teaser for a mixtape
  19. happy to announce: rainbow whirlwind is now on spotify! https://open.spotify.com/album/0aUdWlsEe4BG3RIPSXDAfW my first release there. enjoy the streaming goodness
  20. this and phineus II absolutely phineus, freshest junglist out there atm
  21. thank you, this means a lot.
  22. final update. the release's out, go check it: https://forum.watmm.com/topic/96751-rainbow-whirlwind-ep/ i took my sweet time with the last stretch. these tracks take time because they're built from such small blocks. i worked in short bursts for most of march, so i didn't bother reporting. but now i can say i'm satisfied with the result. i took a big bite and eventually managed to chew it all. the ep sounds very much like it was originally shaped in my mind, seems like i've captured many sounds that didn't exist before. i learned a lot of new tricks on the fly that i had to quickly vary, the creative process was full of interesting twists and turns. i'm using my knob twiddler powers to lock this diary as it has served its purpose. thanks to all soundcloud listeners along the way!
  23. i took some extra time to polish this, it's finally ready. https://milkyheart.vip/album/rainbow-whirlwind 14 minutes of dreamy & distorted drums.
