  1. Hi everyone, I decided I wanted to make a custom track for the VR game Beat Saber (uploaded to beatsaver for folk to download for the custom song injector mod). I always got a sort of 80s Synth Wave feel from the colours and design of the game so I thought something with that taste would be fitting. Just thought I'd get some feedback on the track before I spend many hours trying to map it out for the game. P.S. Incase you were unsure what Beat Saber is, it's a VR Rhythm based Game where you have to strike blocks approaching you (these are mapped to the rhythm of the track). This usually feels like a cross between air drumming and a kind funky Jedi school session.
  2. I've finished a first draft of a new song idea I've had, and wanted to share it will you all to see what you think? It's been a little while since I've written anything intended for a band (it's been maybe 8 years since I've been in one). I recorded both the guitars you here in the track myself, I mapped the drums and bass through Midi instruments. I do plan on continuing the song, adding an intro other than a count in, perhaps a solo section (If I'm still too rusty :P ) or outro etc. This is just the raw idea in terms of verse and chorus. I've included the track itself and also the same track but with a piano template to give a rough idea of the vocal line I had imagined. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to listen! :) (I'll add the first draft of the lyrics I wrote below too) Draft Lyrics (I'm not great at lyrics :P) I remember the day I came back for you, I still hear the words, I can not forget, I try to carry on, just keep pushing through, those words your lips did spell, I'll never forget, Just walk away, just walk away, just walk away from here, just walk away, just walk away, just walk away from this. Some things will stay unsaid now, I'm letting you go, The things I wanted to say, I've put them to bed, and that side of me, I re-fuse to show, Do not worry about it, it's just like you said, I'll walk away, I'll walk away, I'll walk away, from here, I'll walk away, I'll walk away, I'll walk away, from this.

  3. Fantastic! I think the 'Strange mix of instruments' you mention actually work perfectly fine as far as I can tell. I like the composition a lot too, it's dynamic enough that it never gets boring to listen to, but not so dynamic as to capture the focus, which I find important in "Videogamey music" as it's meant to supplement the gameplay and not distract from it (unless it's a very key moment or cutscene of course). The mixing is also very reasonable I'd say. All in all I think if I heard this track in a video game (I imagine it would fit into a 2d platformer or side scroller perfectly) it would certainly stick in my mind long after setting the controller to rest.
  4. Thanks for the feedback jnalanko! Yeah I did that with the vocals on purpose because I thought the trill would help suggest that it was supposed to be an angel or some other divine being singing, maybe it doesn't I guess haha! I did (while doing this original mix) want to leave the organ and the vocals more prominent, keeping the harp a bit more to the background to add some subtle flavour to the sound but I do think raising it an octave would help actually. Thanks again for the feedback and taking the time to listen!
  5. Thanks for the feedback Battlegun. Listening back I agree a higher frequency instrument would be good and I did put a pad in there but I guess it could be made a bit more prominent. Thanks again!
  6. So some of my friends were talking to me about an idea for a little web animated sitcom series set in heaven a little while ago. (I don't think they'll ever make it but I saw an opportunity for a fun exercise). So I decided to make a theme/Jingle that would go over the intro sequence. Let me know what you think! I also threw together a quick picture just to help set the atmosphere a bit 🙂
  7. I think you captured the feel 100% here. I think you did a good job achieving that while still having a composition that sounds original, rather than a rendition or 'knock-off'. Good Job.
  8. I decided to see how well I could re-create a trailer soundtrack using only the stock samples, plug-ins and instruments in Ableton Live 10. It went better than I thought, but it's far from great. I did this as a little practice for writing music to a video/trailer (which I haven't done directly before). If you have any tips for doing so or thoughts on anything I did wrong or right with this attempt let me know, it will only help me improve! 🙂 (Sorry, I tried to embed the video here but I couldn't figure out how, so I just left a link to it) https://youtu.be/lDAryVFrl9Y
  9. I like it. For the most part the mixing/mastering sounds great. One thing that jumps out to me though is a lot of the sections sound very full and satisfying leaving the odd moment with few or even one instrument playing sounding just a little 'thin' (the section were it drops to just the guitar near the start would be an example of what I mean). Other than that I can't of anything constructive to add, other than great work!

    Let us UNITE!

    Yeah it's definitely slower and more 'relaxed' than a lot of club music, I just wasn't really sure how to describe the style honestly. 😂 I agree that it's rather repetitive, more so than I realised on reflection actually. Yeah the Great Dictator samples were definitely an abstract choice, but it can be fun to step far outside of your comfort zone and experiment with abstract ideas sometimes, even if they don't work out in the end we can still learn from the process! Thanks for the feedback! 🙂

    Let us UNITE!

    I thought I would experiment a little bit. I decided to make a sort of 'synth pop' track akin to something you'd here in a club or something perhaps. But instead of being about getting drunk all night or coitus I have incorporated a more positive/inspiring message (via vocal samples). Let me know if you have any thoughts. This is very different to the sort of thing I would normally do and I'm not even sure what genre this would belong to honestly (if you have a suggestion on that let me know too!)
  12. I entered the titled competition hosted through facebook and thought I would share my entry 'Darkness Comes' here. Feel free to check out the link and enter yourself! If you don't want to enter and like my entry, also feel free to throw down a vote! Competition link: https://apps.facebook.com/whcontests/hollywood-choirs-demo-contest
  13. Thanks Maarten! I did agree the end seemed a little incomplete, I've now added an end section. It still needs some tweaking to get it right but I think it's better than before. Yeah it's a pretty crude piano vst I'm using unfortunately, hopefully I'll be able to find someone to perform it eventually though.
  14. I pulled a picture from google and wrote a piano piece I thought fitted the feel of the picture. Feel free to leave your thoughts and feedback. EDIT: The picture wouldn't upload for some reason so I'll leave a link to it here: https://wallpaperscraft.com/download/tamagosho_sky_stars_telescope_night_window_102167/1920x1080 RE-EDIT: I've added a second version with an added end section.
  15. Thanks! Yeah I should have added a fade out at the end of that last loop.
