Here’s that song I was working on finally complete. I played around with bass and synth like I said I would but in the end it sounded best without so I spent my time polishing, compressing and limiting the track. I also drew up some art to go along with the song. I will continue working in this style and see if I can get a small album going.
I like it! Repeating the 5-note descending motif at the beginning of sections makes the work feel unified.
Yeah that’s a really useful function!
I’m probably making a terrible faux-pas by doing this… no doubt trap
artists all over the world will curse me… but if you replace the single
trap line with:
trap_hats(:drum_cymbal_hard, [1, 2, 3, 4].choose, rrand(0.7, 1.3), rrand(0.7, 1.3))
trap_hats(:drum_cymbal_closed, [ 6, 8, 12, 16].choose, rrand(0.7, 1.3), rrand(0.7, 1.3))
I think it’s okay, even if the rest of the trap world doesn’t… but then, what do I know.
(Heh… and lets not even talk about cowbell and chime… )
I like it better actually, I think it carries more intensity and could work for a more aggressive beat. I’ll keep this saved for possibly using at a later time.
