Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

This is a solid effort for your first try on these tools. I especially like the chorus effect on the guitar in the quieter parts of the track. Thanks for the kind words, they're really appreciated! The chorus effect on the clean guitar is actually part of the "Succulent Clean" effect in R...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

To that I would like to suggest some studying material which I appreciated a lot. It's made by mixing engineer Michael White (Whitney Houston, David Bowie, David Byrne, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix remixes, etc...) and the style is really about study, eg. theory and examples. There are no predigested...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

Cool track! I also enjoy writing metal and using Ardour/Hydrogen :) Thanks! I remember listening to a couple of your tracks and I enjoyed those too :D This trick gets me every time. I thought it was well-employed here! Thanks! If you open up your drum track in Hydrogen and show the Mixer (button up...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

Thanks for your feedback on the feedback ! I found it can pay to edit manually each note/event. Which in the case of high hats would be track-based work and not by pattern. A pattern usually recurs too quickly and we easily can detect it, even not consciously. It's longish work to do, and should be...

Re: I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

The song in its essence has many good parts. The sound, when blasting fully is not bad. A bit more bass perhaps. In the quieter passages though it sounds a bit empty, and the drums do not enliven those passages. That is, if it remains an instrumental. If vocals are added - or perhaps a main melody ...

I'll be back for you (instrumental version)

Hi fellow LinuxMusicians! I've just uploaded the very first song I recorded using only open source tools, and I'm quire excited (and scared! :) ) to share this here. It's a demo of the instrumental version of a song I wrote called "I'll be back for you": instrumental because it's actually ...

No problem at all! Thanks for the clarification, the threshold for minimum number of posts makes sense.

Re: Essential information for new users

I noticed that... some setting changed with the phpbb update. investigating... EDIT: all seemed ok... if the problem keeps happening let me know, perhaps it's time to disable the new-post-needs-approval thing. I realize I'm quoting a fairly old message, but it looks like I'm having the same issue: ...

Re: Hello from the Netherlands!

I found this forum via a Dutch synth forum. I hope to learn a lot here about the more technical side of composing music on a Linux computer. As to music composing itself I am an absolute beginner. I like symphonic and progressive rock. Anyway - for me It's just for fun. Dutch and lover or symphonic...

Re: Hi from Italy!

I tried MuseScore recently, but any time I started out it would break audio on my system for some reason. I'm pretty sure it was an issue between Jack and Pulseaudio on my Fedora, even though starting Jack is supposed to suspend Pulseaudio automatically, but I didn't investigate much. It would be ha...

Re: Hi from Italy!

Hi Michael, our stories do sound similar indeed! Thanks for the tip on Scoring Central: I'll definitely pay it a visit when I'll have to deal with all that! I have to admit that for the time being I'm less interested in the virtual orchestration per se, than in the pure orchestration aspects. At the...

Hi from Italy!

Hi all, I'm Lorenzo, and I'm writing from beautiful Napoli, in the South of Italy. I've always been a music lover, especially hard rock, metal of all kinds and progressive: I've been playing guitar for almost 25 years, but never consistently enough to be REALLY good I'm afraid :wink: My real hidden ...
