yo blank this is excelent!
would you consider collaberating on some progressive trance ?
btw what do you mean by live session?
08.01.2005, 04:33 PM
meaning besides some samples it was all made live on the spot!!
colaborating huh? I would consider it...as of right now i have a few ppl that want to but if you know of a way we can do it and have some ideas PM me...Im up to it...it might not be right now but i can probably do it in a week...

Np. Pure Gold...
Strange crackling... Probably intented for vinyl-like feel. Sounds nicely relaxing. I like this. Not a type of music to listen to due really slow progression, but works as background music.
This uplifting atmosphere is great and I really enjoy the guitar parts. Always a joy to hear these mixup songs ("real" instruments & synths). A bassist wouldn't hurt here. Fretless bass would be excellent on this one.
Now it's over. Really nice.

yeah its meant to be a relaxing song...you read my mind about the bass...i couldnt tune my guitar that low...so maybe when i have access to a bass ill slip one in...also it is meant to have a slow progression too...i didnt want extremes up and down just wanted it to flow!! Thanx Juho!

so maybe when i have access to a bass ill slip one in...
Yup. I'm not sure how would finger bass fit there... Probably heavily lowpasse dit would work. It really needs a fretless.
also it is meant to have a slow progression too...i didnt want extremes up and down just wanted it to flow!!
This is very nice background music, so the slow progression is preferrable on that kind of music. Works really well! Faster progression really could "disturb" the listener and this track would be hanging somewhere between background and "normal" music.

This kicks ass!!
Im curious how this all came together.....what equipment u used etc... Is it just you? What exactly is live?
I really enjoyed this, keep up the good work

This is only me! The guitar lead, some synthlines, except for the synthlines that are constant...are all live...well it all came about from a woman! how pathetic huh! Plus i have been wanting to incorporate guitar for years in my electronic music but didnt really have to setup for it! pretty much i would record a part get it to loop and throw it in one at a time...I had a few samples that were premade and were the foundation but there was no manual placement in the arrangement....just hit record and let the loops fly! Thats why its long! But loops are made by me!
I used virus C, Nova, my Ibanez!
Ok. here goes my 'review'.
Excellent guitars in the begining - very nice melodies.
When the bongos start i become happy for some reason (may be the fact that i am a sucker for tabla/bongo-drums in general?). The pads are just full of life and just goes perfect with the flow in this song
The drums are really crisp and has a really nice 'tone' in them and fits perfect however the tb303-like bass isn't that good in my opinion. Maybe try another type of bass-sound? It sure has this relaxing feel to it.
The song would works really great - the guitars sound just awesome aswell.
I get a 'driving around in a car in the middle of the night'-type of feel for this song.
Well this is just my humble opinion of course mate

Im diggin it. The feel and sound is great. Reminds of me of driving down the beach during the summertime.

however the tb303-like bass isn't that good in my opinion
Is everything a 303 like bass to you... :lol: ...Well either way i agree with you I do believe i need a new bass sound, I actually thought that when i made it...Thank you for the critic!
Thanx Merlot, Love the avatar too!
Is everything a 303 like bass to you
But of course!

303 is what the universe evolves around.
its like the earth's sun....

hmm....i wouldnt go that far but i will say it can be quite useful like the sun :wink:

For some reason this song reminds me of my hangoverovers at Roskilde Festival and thats not meant as a bad thing. It?s this kinda music i like to listen to when i?m really busted from the night before and really need to relax and come on top again :wink: I really like it :D

:lol: ...Thanx Onkel
25.01.2005, 03:45 PM
Cool stuff blank!
I really enjoyed hearing this. The live feel was certainly emanating from it!
25.01.2005, 05:41 PM
Thanx man...right now im working on a refined version of it...kind of a radio mix :lol: Hopefully it will come out good
28.01.2005, 12:18 AM
Definitely the best thing I've heard come out of you mate!
The flow of the song is cool and everything fits together very well. The structure of the song I have no complaints at all about. Very relaxing and groovy.
I wasn't a big fan of the beats though. They were cool, but just very "loop" if you know what I mean. Still having said that, they still fit well and didn' take my attention away from the feel of the music.
The standout for this track was the general atmosphere! Lots of well used FX and LFOs, plus the sounds were great! You should really do more of this type of stuff Blank - it's just better than your other stuff hands down.
Really nice work mate. Look forward to hearing the refined version. :D

Thanx Hollow...As i said b4 you always do great critics...Im glad you reallly like this one, its a bit long but it doesnt sound as long as it is which i like but thats going to be hard when refining it as for drums i just slapped down loops so thats why it sounds loopy :lol:
