thief's stuff

I'll just make this one thread where I can spam my tracks without always making a new topic etc.

I made some simple house. Quite happy with how it sounds. Had to tune the vocal sample around a bit because the first mix sounded way too out of tune. I don't mind a bit of dissonance if it sounds cool. Like many older house and jungle tracks have samples that tonally have little to do with the bassline or synths yet it sounds good. In this case though it was too off. Now it's a bit too chipmunkish but at least it's not as bad anymore.

I mostly tried to make variation to the track by volume automation, bringing elements in and out and adjusting the cutoff filter on the synth pad.

Feels like a quick practice track between more "serious" stuff but I usually find that the best tracks are the ones where I'm not trying too much.



This is something I made a month ago or so. Sounds like a cheap version of Bower Electric's Fear of Flying. I was experimenting with crappy mp3 sounds, trying to find out if this kind of lofiness has any value. I exported some of the samples in the crappiest mp3 settings I could get in cubase and used them back in the track. I also ran the whole thing through c-cassette. Not a "serious" track either but a nice little experiment for myself.

Chill nighttime drive vibes I guess. A mix of chill house and synthwave maybe? Just went more for nice ambient textures with a nice beat.

Also first track trying out Arturias prophet and cs-80 vst's I recently purchased.

New track. First one mixed with my new KRK's. A big improvement to my monitoring situation. Probably far from perfect but now I at least feel like I hear what I'm doing.

I actually prefer YT to Soundcloud, because Youtube sounds better to me, but no point in not uploading to SC. Also I feel that random people are more likely to click on an YT link rather than SC. Maybe..

Today I was just trying out some plugins and made a few bars of music for that but it turned out a complete track.
 

 

I'm thinking you could back off the bass drum just a bit? It sounded a little grating in my headphones at least and besides I'd like the rest of the music to shine through more. Otherwise it sound really nice, great melody, beautiful sounds and develops very naturally throughout. Maybe there's a bit of Air in there?

Thanks for the feedback. Can't be arsed to go back and change anything tbh. It is what it is.

Anyway, a new track
