8 Audio, 8 Midi tracks
Slow piece. Used simple voicings this time and a simple pedal progression in A. Still fighting Ableton and wrote something fitting. Eh, I might not understand it all yet but I am far from tapping out. What a cool program! Wanted to hook up an external sound card and record some (bass)guitar and or plug in a midi wind controller, but I'm still struggling with warping and finding my way around in the program and have been too busy with cool effects like compressors and phasers. Not sure where this assignment is going, just need to upload it before I forget for I nearly forgot to do my week 2 theory as well. As in, not completely finished but I'm happy enough to hand in this assignment as is anyway. Hope everyone is doing great with their assignments, I am off to listen to some of your pieces once this is uploaded to Coursera. Feb 18th. Created a bass line by making a midi copy from my drum part, deleting the hi hats and using the snare and kick to work with. Kept it as simple as possible to make the pedal progression super clear. Tried to hook up an external soundcard and MIDI windcontroller yesterday and failed so miserably I ended up programming my lead by hand today. Shaped my bass and lead sounds. Lead sounds are heavily inspired by Joe Zawinul. Lowered the volume on my voice samples a bit. Wrote the busiest ead first and started deleting from there to make two lesser dense parts. Did volume automation. Oh, and a beer and a scotch when I was done. Might still do some volume control on my strings tomorrow. It's not perfect but I'm a lot happier than yesterday. Hope your projects are going great. Thanks for listening and for sharing your projects. Feb 19th. Did a small update just in time for the deadline today. Just noticed it got extended but I am off to work on project #3. Applied auto pan to my strings. Made a less abrupt ending and I'm calling it a day. Time to go check out what you guys made. Thanks for listening and commenting and thanks for sharing your work. Have a great day!
