First thing I've ever submitted to Newgrounds for the 10 years I've been coming here. I have no idea what to label this as.

This song is actually a hell of a lot more bubbly sounding than I would ever actually aim to do. And for some reason I thought it came out pretty good. This was played out on my MicroKorg and recorded using MAGIX 2005.

I originally recorded this during late November last year (2008) and ended up losing the program of the sound due to the blackout caused by the ice storms. I managed to save this and another clip of it on my PC before everything turned off. So as of right now there is no chance of me recreating the sound that got tagged along in this song.

I originally pictured this being as a 'bonus track' to something. I would normally write something that sounds a lot more industrial (or so I make believe I would). I also titled it after I finished recording it. For some reason it reminded me of the end theme you would get after playing an old Super Nintendo rpg, where there would be excessive amounts of celebrating for no reason. It is then followed by a good bye.

Hopefully I'll get an appropriate icon soon.
None the less. Enjoy! Comments are appreciated, critiques, etc.


good start

Well to me this sounds like a few random notes played over and over while you turn a few knobs. I also recognize a few SLIGHTLY tweaked presets from the MicroKorg. If this was an ambient song I'd give it a 4, but as techno I'd give it about a two. For your next song try to develop a constant melody and add some drums, pads, bass, and all that. It seems like you did all this live, and unless you are reaally good at piano, i recommend you do some editing. There's tons of programs you could use, like FL studio, Cubase, Garage Band, etc. Its a good starting point though. I think itll be interesting to see how you progress. Keep working!

Actually man I don't do presets. And I have the midi data saved from the notes played. The problem lies in I recorded more than one take of it after playing keys and figuring out which sound would go best with it. Originally the signal was recorded using a generic polysynth sound just as a firm medium, which I used my Korg Poly 800 which has more keys immediately available so that I don't need to be stuck with 3 octaves.

I've since submitting this actually got really good at recreating sounds based on what I hear, took a while though. I got a sound similar created, but not exact, which is still biffing me. In terms of genre, I've been told by others that Japanese Noise Movement, although I really don't agree with that for some reason.

Thanks for the comment. Much appreciated.
