Also I suggest spending some more time working on your sound design for the last portion of it as it comes across rather 'random'
It would imply that you're using presets.

Here's something I'm working on. :p

Here's the piece I'm working on. I joined a group of ruffians who are working on Beyond Skyrim. I was tasked with creating a small trailer piece with a melody based on the Dovahkiin theme. Anyways, I'm interested in hearing suggestions regarding instrumentation.


I think the instrumentation is on spot, it really has that Skyrim vibe and it surely sounds as a trailer, but i think it needs a bigger ending after all what happens in the middle. The mix is pretty good, nice job :3

Something highly WIP i am doing, i am trying to do a pop/love song, my sister is gonna sing, i just used my vocals to test the sound

I'm working on a track I started before xmas, as you may notice by the filename. It was early on repurpoused to be my contribution to Derpys Wings.
This is what procrastination looks like :I

Anyone else like doing stuff like this? Hideing "subliminal messages" in tracks like this?

And I don't see how your picture contains a hidden message, but I use them in my music all the time. People like Lazer Vision though, they're just scary with their hidden messages in tracks (which are often explained on their SoundCloud descriptions).

And I'm currently working on my first ever Xalpheon collab (first ever makes it sound so energetic and young ^-^ ), with my friend Dion Dash :O
https://soundcloud.com/diondash/dion-da ... le/s-tH7Lu

I'm soooooooo damn proud of it already! We hope to finish it wednesday, so I can play it at the Noisj gig this friday.

Oh and uh. It's loosely inspired by Syene - Lunatic (if you know that track already I'll give you a fucking medal).

Here ya go.
I can see why you wouldn't call it a hidden message... since it doesn't have anny real meaningfull information to convay. If we get technical though, it is visual information hidden in audio, and a message is technicly just information... So it's technicly a hidden message... It's fun to do annyway

Anyway... what am I working on... vectors... and not the fun, artsy kind of vectors. The mathsy, complicated, give-up-now kind of vectors.
Because it was so horrible and physicly painfull to do that I made a desperate attempt to do something else, leading to this. A schematic of a PWM based amplifier... Could also be used an interesting sounding bitcrusher thing...

I love the first one, try a little more reverb on the choir.

Only spent a few days on this; I'll probably go back to it later.
Also I couldn't get a real acapella of the song so I had to use the actual track from Parry Gripp to use as vocals.
Nice.

Lots of electronic tracks, all pretty much at once, for an amateurish debut 'album'...sorta. It would help if I had a condenser mic but money is too tight unfortunately. I can't keep a MacBook Pro with OSX Lion running too long from now, so those projects need to get out the way quickly.

Well, not actually music (except for inside my head which developed another two new ideas just this week), but:

Tearing down my bedroom setup, hoovering the floor for the first time in years, putting everything back together including the stuff that I haven't included yet, get the sample libraries going that I've acquired over the last couple of months years...

Next up my list are the odd "get known, get myself a reputation" song because I have to start with something at some point — and the requested* danceable stuff for the GalaCon gala ball because dear Princess Celestia, I've learned that I'm probably the only brony who can pull that off.

*Yep, I get requests although almost nopony has ever heard me make any music yet.

A couple of constructive criticisms, please roll off the high end on the master, and learn how to use a de-esser on the vocals, as the sibilance is really bad.

Thanks for the advice, as I have only been working on this remix for about 2 hours and I will be doing alot more with it and I will most definitely take your advice. :)

I've had a plan to do stuff live from the beginning, but then I realised that the way I do stuff would require a full band on stage of instruments that are not 'conventional'

I've been working on university projects. A couple weeks back I recorded a small orchestra in a pretty neat 6 mic configuation, they covered the LOTR soundtrack, then I did all the post production and mixing for it, which was pretty minimal, EQ and some gentle compression to tame the higher peaks. I've also got some other personal projects to do, probably gonna be a while til they see the light of day because my schedule is a little hectic and far away from my setup for roughly a month.
I'm not here anymore, but if you want you can still just call me Mr. BigBagelBoggle!

The university project with the orchestra sounds similar to what we had to do with a band at my Uni.


Anyway, currently working on three new songs for Uni assignments - A metal track, a chill/electronic track, and what my teacher likes to call a 'folk metal' song, though honestly it's not all that folky. I can't even put a finger on what genre it is.

I'm working hard on my procrastination skills. Instead of writing essays and preparing presentations and programing and reading and all those seemingly important things, I have been instaling LED nautical navigation lights in a sailors hat... Because reasons!
...
...
They're good reasons.

As for music works though... Slowly moving forward with my mashcore, sample spaming for No Morality, and written yet another short song for the very same album. I should realy get to recording those soon...

No attention has been paid to panning, balancing or EQing yet, bear in mind.
