Track Submission

Post by amarant24 » Mon May 30, 2011 7:47 pm

I'll be posting more tracks later on this week but these are some tracks I'm coming up with for the bandit cave.
Have a listen Yubaba firstly and secondly community have a listen. Comments are appreciated.

I find the sudden silence bits very annoying. I think it would drive you crazy when listening to it for more than a few minutes.

How about filling them with a very low-pitch bass?

1) The music should repeat itself indefinitively without any interruption that can be heard.
2) The annoying bits are indeed very annoying, try making a little melody in front of that but keepng these bits at a lower level and maybe longer bits need to be used.
3) The idea is here but the music needs a little melody, something catchy that can be repeated without being annoying for the players thus it needs to be longer than 1 minute.

Best regards,

if its not longer then a minute then yes it should be catchy + music that doesnt seem its looping, like a melody. also when you do the loop there is a automatic replay setting in there try and find it and set it. can i ask what software your using? also if you wanna know more please feel free to ask me :)
this piece isnt bad for your first try but it can be much better with improvement ;) im still waiting for my computer sadly but when i get it back (which is soon) i will help you with other pieces and finish some of my projects :D

Same Track slightly improved.
I had not heard it with headphones or on a sound system just on the computer speakers and it sounded very different.
When I put on the Headphones I immediately agreed with all of you and yes the sound was annoying.
I improved it though added some bass and a tiny melody.
However I still can't get it to loop correctly at least not when I export it.
@Yubaba I am using LMMS when I click export it always goes one beat ahead (where it's empty) thus the silence at the end.
Hope you guys like this version better!

The melody is composed of 3 notes... this isn't a melody. Try to avoid these sounds, use soft sounds that don't interupt between each others. Don't make each part stand out, everything should be shaded (without decreasing the volume).

This one is different, Completely! I am in confusion as to how to make the track loop succesfully maybe Yubaba could help me out later on. Everytime I F***ING export it it simply adds 2 or 3 seconds of nothingness.
But here is the new track. Enjoy

remember you can use more than one software to make a track, in some softwares you can cut the ends off (which is what i do after i make it)

i edited your music and cut off the extra 3 seconds that was on it. the editing is kind of crap because im not on my computer but ill work on it proper when im back.

Sorry for being so honest, but I find this track awful.

It seems to me like you just slapped some synthesizer patches together without much thought about harmonics, rhythmn or melody. Nothing really seems to fit together. The different instruments seem to play against each other instead of with each other.

When you want to improve yourself, you could read up a bit on song structure, time signatures, harmonic scales etc.

When it isn't for TMW then please don't post it in a forum in the "tmwAthena server development" category.
