Cramulan Audio
« on: August 18, 2011, 06:56:22 pm »
Once in a blue moon, I bust out some audio software and try to make musics.

It's usually pretty bad.

I made this minute long song this morning, mainly to get reacquainted with my audio software. I'm posting it here not because it's good (it's not), but so when I actually figure out how to make music people want to listen to, I can look back at how far I've come.


Here's a very short song. It has no title. http://kiwi6.com/file/t3l03g5mzm

That was pretty good actually.  I think you've got a good knack for playing around a melody.

 :)
Also posting to say thanks for the Kiwi6.  I didn't know where to host some of my audio rants that I don't necessarily want to host on my site, but want to share here.

I liked it.  It was simple, not unharmonious, and sounded pretty.

My first thought was 'cute'. It's a nice little upbeat tune. I liked it and am interested in following your music's evolution.

THIS MUSIC JUST CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

it's pretty good, lightyears better than whenever I try to come up with a melody.

something about it kind of reminds me of kraftwerk's really old stuff.

There's something not quite right about the drum-line. Its sound is simple, but it's rhythm is somehow too elaborate. I'd err on the side of simplicity. Or maybe it's just the relative volume of all the drum samples, I don't know.

THE SECOND ONE IS SO CRAZY IT CHANGED MY LIFE RIGHT BACK--GOOD JOB

I'm pretty sure now the thing with the drums is that you need to adjust the relative volumes. Or maybe try a different drum synth machine :)

Additionally, I'm fairly sure that you need to download some nature documentary and sample the sounds of screeching monkeys to accompany this track. Either that or classic cartoon sound effects. Or both. Or maybe do sounds of monkeys and typewriters :)

no they're not, but thank you.  :lol:


I made this track as a combat soundtrack for a LARP
http://kiwi6.com/file/40x2294t2m

I'm running an encounter where all the enemies have an attack they do at the same time, cued by the soundtrack. So if you pay attention to the soundtrack cue, you can outsmart / out-maneuver them.

A cabalmate and I are working on this project

we're a boy band

called S3X DR1VE


all the music we've made so far has been using this iphone app which autotunes your voice and sets it to one of three music tracks

it is uniformly awful, and I don't think any of them are longer than a minute

An early draft of "Horse Song"
http://kiwi6.com/file/f8e742ytr8

This is background music for a specific scene at a LARP I'm playing in two weeks. It's background music for a ritual, so I'm going for a mystical, mysterious sound

the next version will include horse noises
