Description : This is one of my earliest productions that I did at the start of my recording career. I did not have a keyboard at the time I made this song, so I improvised and used my sister's iPad and a 5 dollar GarageBand application instead, and plugged the headset jack into into my PT6 rig and did my best to turn each individual track (which were mono and there were about 25 tracks or so) into a stereo image. Then recorded vocals over it. My computer was so old and slow that I had to mix my music and then BOUNCE it to a new session - four times. My computer (which had 512 MB RAM and an 80 GB hard drive) couldn't handle more than 8 tracks at a time or it'd stop working because the processor couldn't handle it. Took me FOREVER to do. But I got it done. Had a lot of fun doing it too, even if it isn't my "best" work. I'm still happy with it, considering I didn't have many tools to choose from at the time.

Just listened to this one as well. I am astounded at what you were able to do with an iPad. Yes, I can tell that your writing and performing skills have improved, but this is a really impressive track on its own. Keep 'em coming! (But, don't neglect your school work.) :)

Congrats and respect, Danke

Hi MrEpicRecord,
Nice pop song.
I like the vocal part: good voice. Maybe not too "original" lines, but they work well.
The only part that was not "on par" according to me is the beginning of the rap section (1:54) ... a couple of words seem not to really fit the "flow".
Lovely piano arpeggio: simple yet effective. Liked.
The overall sound quality is definitely not bad.
So, this one shows some talent!
Ciao, Domenico

Thanks,mrwolf14!

Yeah, this was an early work that I did several years ago so my writing skills weren't sharpened and this was our first-ever attempt at rapping of some sort haha. It was kind of our "test song" that my brother and I made :P

Description : A demo of one of my current projects. The chorus vocal sounds like "Aaaaraashe" to me. The song is in C# minor with a nod to C# pythagorean on the chorus. The beat on the verse was inspired by the Peter Gabriel song Intruder.

Description : Long time lurker first time poster, pretty new to production n stuff, this is my first track in Ableton Live.
was going for a darkwave/synthwave sound, reminiscent of Justice, Carpenter Brut, Perturbator, ect.
Looking for some feed back, constructive criticisms or even just your thoughts if you liked it or not. This is just a rough cut on this current WIP, just the bones of it if you will.. If you have some cool title suggestions, would love to hear those too.
Thanks for listening.

Description : Far out mid-tempo fat beat deep chillout grooves with Eastern/Arabic and slightly menacing vibes, huge delayed synth bass and a great palette of psychedelic layered and intricate sounds (mostly synths) and a stirring, epic feel. Even has guitar solo section reminiscent of some 80s power rock which is then followed by a brief synth harp solo. I began making it straight after staying round the flat of the flute player from the legendary Ozric Tentacles - easily the greatest ever space rock band. I made this in about 2001 and still think it might be my best track (and it's nice and short, for a change). My production skills were much weaker in those days (no EQ, compression or mastering used here) but, somehow, this one turned out pretty much just right. Feel free to disagree. Now sit back and get ready to trip extremely far out. If you manage to return, let me know how that trip was...

Description : Got some spare time finally...just started on some random ideas basically (lets say kygo meets alan walker). A blend of dubstep,edm,downbeat,tropical etc.
It's still a work in progress, so i would appreciate your honest inputs. Thanks to all those whose loops I have used in here, sorry I don't have time to search them out.
Edit-added some more filthy sounds from my previous tracks and gave it some ending. Advice will be helpful.

Description : Love the unique style and dark vibe of the acapella so I gave it a go and ended up with a Mid tempo/Bass house track. Got the acapella off here If you're wondering. I don't make a lot of bass house so any pointers or opinions in general are always appreciated.

Description : How does it feel to do a more than 2000 miles Roadtrip? Well, it is fantastic. The biggest freedom I have. I need the "Autobahn", different countrys, different moods, rain & sun, something to eat, a ferry and off it goes in a 30 yrs old Merc. I wanted to bring the feelings into a song. And here we are. The initial “Groove” does come from a cheap Casio Keyboard I bought at a flea market. Listen to a simple 60s. sample beat. Thanks to our community for some loops and let’s start the engine.
