Description : I knew absolutely nothing about producing music about a year ago. I think often times change is so gradual that it's not very detectable. I think it's helpful to go back to where you started.

So, I went back to one of my first few tracks I made, and boy did it sound terrible!!! So I spent an hour or two tweaking a few settings like panning, EQ, compression, reverb etc. I know I still have TONS to learn but I see a big improvement with mixing from my start.

    Dear Friend, I have been trying to make music for many years but I am still far from your excellent results. Do interesting and original things, keep it up.

    Hey Todd, you are right saying that technical know how is important. I agree completely. But what I want to say is: watch out because over trying to get the perfect sound the creativity might easily take the back seat. Both is important, but my point is that you can reach somebody with a good song that has a bad sound rather than with a bad song that has a flawless sound. But that's only my opinion. Stay creative ...
    My regards,
    Michael

    Thanks man! I absolutely agree! I think the priority has to be your idea and creativity and the production plays a supporting role to that. Although good production can certainly help get your idea or message across and make it potentially more enjoyable for the listener. So yes, both are important, but the creative side to me is top dog in the process. I sometimes have to remember to try and not "fiddle" with knobs etc. too much with each instrument as it is added in regards to sound quality, but rather make sure the new instrument added is "right" sound for what I want. And maybe even trying to not do any production work until the song is completely flushed out in its bare bones form.

    Thanks for your time, appreciate it!

    What an interesting array of a muzical smorgasboard. :-)
    I know what you mean about change, you look back and realize how far you've come and hadn't even noticed. But that's what makes it fun!
    I don't see the original, but I'm sure it sounds terrible!!!!
    Haha...JUST KIDDING! :-)

    Hi Patricia. Thank you for listening and commenting.

    Sometimes when I think I am stuck or feeling down about any progress, I find it helpful to back to where you started just to see/hear the improvements you have made and feel good about that.

    Ironically though, I think sometimes it's better not knowing you are bad because it takes the judgement out of it and perhaps you are actually more free to play explore and make mistakes. Judgement is where joy goes to die! :)

    Anyway, I couldn't post the link in the original post because Looperman won't allow it. So here is the link to the original I put out about a year ago.... https://soundcloud.com/toddlove/mysterious-power

    From a mixing stand point this feels very flat and dull. No EQ or compression, I didn't do any panning, and some other things as well. I know I have SO much more to learn and I could probably come back and remix this track in another year and hopefully do an even better job. But, it's the journey not the destination. Trying to enjoy the process. Besides, this is only the production side of things, it's more important to have something to say with the music itself, even if it sounds not technically perfect.

    I've gone on WAY too long, sorry. :) Thanks again!

Description : I'm from Denmark/Copenhagen, and I traveled all the way to Sweden/Helsingborg just to experience the ultimate Swedish nightlife.

I have been to the hottest VIP clubs in Copenhagen and Milano. Nothing come even close to the Swedish nightlife.

I went to a bar called "Benzin Bar" and they put the bardisk on fire(with Benzin) and danced on the tables. The bartender toke some of his cloths off and sprayed champaign around and the music-mix was insane!

If you want the ultimate party experience, then Sweden is it!

I just got emailed the music director of a big Swedish radiostation. The music director agrees with me that Benzin bar was amazing! He puts this track on the music rotation!

I freaking love Sweden!

Description : This track is an experimental version of the popular Hindu mantra Om Namah Shivaye, wonderfully sung by Ankit Sharda. The female background vocalist doesn't want her name mentioned in the credits.

The song was created on Caustic Beta Version 3.8, and mastered on Mastering Beta Version 5; both Android apps from Single Cell Software. The new Sawsynth synthesizer in Caustic was used in the background & synth bass (paired with another bass).
