Description : So I was talking about trying my hand at some melow lofi hiphop and decided to give it a shot. Since hiphop is more organic, I tried playing the parts on the keyboard and had to fix a lot of stray notes but I think I got it. :D

    "I started making electronic music in 1999 with a program named Dance ej."

    YESSSSSS I remember using that very same thing before I switched over to DAWs like Reason. I got my offical musical start in 2000-2001 with working under a label/making money at my hobby...

    but my god Ella: As soon as you said Dance EJ, those nostalgic feelings came rushing up. I was 18 in 2000 lol.

    Anyways, onto the song. I've become more and more partial to Lo-Fi when I've been studying/relaxing...sleeping lol. This is sort of a blend between Synthwave and lo-fi I guess?

    The beat is insane, just the quality and melody/piano work in general is perfect lo-fi for me. I could listen to this on repeat for hours, and not even know hours passed lol

    It was an instant fav for me. I think you should continue on with new Lo-Fi to add to your repertoire with your House music.

    OMG Clay, you're kidding? You should hear the crap I made with that program! I still have some songs laying around somewhere. But to me, they where fire haha.

    If you say it is synthwave blend, I'll take your word for it. I dunno. I just figured a lot of lofi tunes end up sounding the same, with same instrumentation every time. Not that I don't like that but it gave me an excuse to experiment a little. Hope it works.

    Thank you for your kind compliments. It is so nice to get encouragement to continue on. I am working on more lofi tunes because I just love the style and I've forced myself to stay away from house for a while. Let's see how it turns out.

    BTW when will you post that song I asked you about? ;)

    well Ella?
    We 65'rs can be proud on our selfs and there are not much woman of our age starting with this.
    So we need to ATTACK LM with our music lol.
    And who knows? Maybe you will be a dj on Party's 1 day.
    Im sure you can with your experience from the past and your will.
    If you dont use your bike for a long time you are a little insecure in the beginning but the next day its like you never stopped cycling .
    For me its a great hobby and ofcourse i want to become better but the most importend to leave my music for my children and grandchildren as a memory 1 day.

    Well Rita, I'm not quite sure of my "maturity" level hahaha. But, yeah let's attack LM! ... *rawr!*

    And no, no djing for me. Even if I didn't think I'm too old for that stuff, I'm too afraid of crouds unfortunately.

    I'm sure you'll have quite the legacy for your kids and grandkids. Hopefully it will inspire them to do the same. There is no better hobby in the world.

    Very classy and very cool with beautiful instrumentation, beats and melodies weaving in and out in a gentle hip hop - lets call it medium - fi : )

    Reply by AtticElla

    I honestly must have something wrong with my ears, because I listened to a bunch of different lofi songs and they vary in their degree of lofi "intensity"? But mine still sounds to me like it is in that general range. I've even heard songs that are of higher "quality" and still have that lofi flavor. It has to be a subjective aspect I'm sure, so I'm not even going to bother to change anything. ;)

    But in any case, thank you for the listen and comment pseudoble. Really appreciate it. ;D

    Nice brightness and great movement, I enjoyed listening. Maybe just a couple more fills?

    AtticElla
    Reply by AtticElla

    Well, If I understand what you mean correctly, in this style of lofi hiphop, fills, frills, cymbal crashes and such are used very sparingly if at all. Not even sprinkled effect hits. Listen to anything by Kupla on Bandcamp and you'll see what I mean. Kupla is fantastic!

    Thanks for the comment JackLake!

    hahaha im sorry madam.
    Nice to hear that there are more madams who wants to create music.
    Ok my english is not the best you must now but i want to ask you also something.
    How long you making music?
    I didd want to try Ableton but when i see how it works on youtube it looks like algebra for me so i will stay on FL.
    And the last question...dont need to answer idf you dont want.
    Are you the same as me?? Finding out on this age like my age (56) that
    making music was something for me but whole my life i diddnt know?
    Have a nice day madam and i wish you much plesure and succes with your music and here on LM

    Reply by AtticElla

    Rita, I did take guitar and piano lessons as a kid but never stuck with it so I was never good and finally forgot what I learned. My parents were both musicians. I started making electronic music in 1999 with a program named Dance ej.

    My progress has been slow over the years, picking it up and taking long breaks in between. But I enjoy making music so much I could never stop completely.

    And guess what? You and I madam where both born in the same year! And yes, I wish I had started a lot sooner. In fact, I wish I could go back in time to be a DJ like Charlotte De Witte.

    I have to say, you do a fantastic job for having started on this last year! I'm impressed. Hope to listen to a lot more of your work on LM.

    Pretty cool mix, it's compressed enough, I can hear all the instruments fine. The track has a mellow, sultry feel to it and some cool, textural elements in it. Neat tremolo effect on the piano too. Nice job Ella! Enjoy the Attic!

    I'm not exactly in an attic but it's close enough. It's on a second story above the garage with a window in front of me so it feels like one. I actually wish I could have my studio in an attic and hence the name. I love attics.

    Thanks for the kind comment theHumps!

    Happy to help.

    I'm not going to keep blowing up the comments on this track.

    This gist is, if you are simulating tape degradation how does a tape degrade? Usually, the highs get all scrambly, and the lows end up taking over, scrambling the highs every time they hit.

    To simulate this, you are generally manipulating the master, using the information from the kick.

    Here's one way to do it:
    Run all tracks into a bus.
    Make an additional track all alone for the "noise." Have the noise duck with the kick.
    Run the bus, and noise, to another bus.
    Put EQ on this bus to wash out some highs and compression to duck the mix with the kick (the noise gets a "double ducking")
    Send this track to two separate tracks for separating out the highs.
    Put a hint of phase on the highs (wobble). You could side-chain the degree of wobble to the kick for even more effect.
    Run those to the master. EQ as needed.
    Done.

    That's one of many ways do tastefully degrade something. Your original take was very good... but you asked :)

    Oh, and don't forget to distort the kicks and 808s (post any side-chaining) if you want your speakers to sound busted :D

    Yeah, sorry, that's why I asked you to send me a message, as in email, but I wasn't clear enough. But it's all good. You explained it perfectly. Will try it out. Thanks for taking the time. :D

  14. bringerofDOOM
    bringerofDOOM on Wed 17th Nov 2021 - 2 months ago

    Yeah, you knew exactly what I meant. It was too bright.

    For reference:
    tape fidelity is generally 30 Hz to 16 kHz
    vinyl in theory could go as low as 7 Hz, as high as 50kHz, but that doesn't matter to me, I can only hear from about 30 Hz to about 16kHz (like most people). Anything lower than 30 Hz is pretty much a rhythm anyway. My jam band drummer's feet can technically play a "note."

    Also a phone is usually about 80 Hz to 14kHz, so most of your listers couldn't hear the "brightness" we heard (it's also why most kick have ridiculous slap now). It's funny, the lowest "lofi" is everyone's crappy phone speaker, not tape or vinyl :D

    In other words, watch out for reliance on gauges and meters. Your thermometer can tell a one degree difference in temperature, but all you care about is if it is "hot" or "cold." If it sounds like a phone playing a old digital recording of some degraded vinyl or tape, on your monitors and in nice headphones, then you probably nailed it.

    Slicing some Hz off the top is a good "cheater" way to make it "Lofi", and did help the mix, but noise addition (brown or pink, and side-chained to duck with the kick with a long release), pitch wobble (manual or with a plugin), and other tricks will really get you there. You looking for tape or vinyl "degradation" not necessarily a change in fidelity.

    If memory serves me correctly, slicing some highs has helped. I hint of side-chained mid-range noise will help more.

    If you really want to cheat, try running the tracks through cabinet emulators (or several through the same one).

    I hope I opened a can of worms... have fun.

    AtticElla
    Reply by AtticElla

    You certainly did open a can of worms. I did add mechanical noise, vinyl noise, and pitch wobble on the master and some separate but similar processing to the piano. Not sure what difference it makes to add noise at the master stage or as a separate bus if that's what you mean. But no matter, got plenty of info to work with. Thank you for taking the time to answer bringerofDOOM.

    Nice to hear you stretch out beyond the "house."
    Nice chord. melodic, and timbre choices.
    Mixed too good for lofi :P

    But still excellent. Like kingmt77 said... classy.

    Wonder what you would sound like if you explicitly avoided possible genre classification?

    Keep it up.

    AtticElla
    Reply by AtticElla

    Yeah, kind of getting tired of house and I love lofi hip hop so why not.

    So I think what you meant by "mixed too good" is that it was too bright. I uploaded a new version with less high end essentially knocking the air out :P It would mean the world to me if you gave it another listen and tell me what you think. You can shoot me a message if you wish?

    Thank you bringerofDOOM for taking the time to listen =)

Description : Just like the first EP "OGOU", this production focuses on organic elements with drum samples.It contains modern sounds such electronic down-tempo, future bass,and hip-hop, which makes the music sound old and new at the same time. With heavy sampling of African chants and sound generated from other tribes, this is production will bring more flavor and enjoyment--it's like Africa to your Ears.

Description : After a major uphill battle completing this song and turning it into what it is now, I feel some amount of satisfaction. It was like reality wanted me to give up or something. It's done... phew... Have updated this almost completely, from repatching the modular bass, playing some guitar parts, adding electric piano and synth lead, redoing and tuning the DW-6000 synth, of course adding my vocals, and mixing and mastering. It really has become pretty new wave, like much of my stuff does recently. Have added the lyrics as well. I am proud and happy with it, and I hope you all enjoy listening! UPDATE... woohoo just broke 1000 plays on this track here at looperman!
***original description***
Hey finally here with a new track! I'm not sure what to call this other than electronic, due to the high tempo. This is the first song finished using my interface which allows direct MIDI control of my modular synthesizer. The mid frequency bass part is all from that patch. There are tracks designed with my Zoom RT-123 drum machine, the microkorg, and the circuit bent KORG DW-6000. Other than that it is just a kick and snare drum sample, and a a quick vocal snippet. So I guess it's fairly minimal in that respect. Would like to hear the Looperman community's thoughts on this song! Thank you for listening

Description : The answer to Close Encounters is Hymn Of The Pleiades.This is a strictly groove track where the elements of ambient meets electronic funk and Hip Hop. Track was recorded, mixed and mastered using Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 software. Results were achieved by using a FATA Studio 90 MIDI keyboard ran through a E-MU Proteus 2000 sound module, - for the phat funky bass synth. I also used a KORG O5R/W sound module for the retro lead synth parts and ambient sound pads.
I utilized what was essentially a old school Hip Hop drum track, arranged and beefed it up for that extra umh! I greatly appreciate all the positive feedback the track has garnered thus far. Keep listening and by all means, your comments are much welcomed... thanks.
