This song is amazing!
It was never repetitive and it was bursting with emotion and dedication.
i have one question, though. the percussion coming in around 2:20 sounds like hitting a rim on a drum, and i was wondering how you made the sound. :) i would really like to know!
I'm a big fan of Native Instruments :3 The little Taiko-rim thing should be in this plugin here:
But there is another way (never tried it; might sound shitty):
Allright lets hope you have Fl-Studio otherwise I wrote this for nothing xD
-Search for free "wood-percussion" samples and download them.
-Pick one you like and edit the length, pitch and panning !very subtly! > save all the altered versions in some folder (10 should be enough).
You could also layer a few of those versions for a more ensemble-like result.
-If you have DirectWave load it up and drop all those samples in the grey list like area.
-Things should turn yellow now. I hate yellow...
-Now you have all your samples listed in there> Go to the top one and search for the L-Key, Root Key and High-Key numbers>
change them all to "60" which hopefully should be your "C5" Key
-Now you've edited those numbers only for the top one.> right-click on that one>"Copy to all zones">Root Key, High Key, Low Key
-Now you have all those samples playing on your "C5" Key. But we don't want them to play simultaneously:
Go to the vertical menu in the bottom left corner and click on "Zone". Now there should be a "Trigger" section in the first little menu.
Go there and change the group to "1" and the type to "random"
Save your DirectWave preset! Save it! QUICK! BEFORE IT CRASHES! O_O
Now you can play all your edited wood-percussion samples randomly on your C5 Key.
Oh and don't forget to set the "loop-type" in the vertical menu "sample" section to "disabled" for every single sample!
Otherwise it will..well.. Loop your samples when you hold the key O_o
I used this for my voiceglitch set but with multiple keys and way too many samples. I had to edit 822. Took me 2 days @_@
Hope this helps a bit :3
Love the variety throughout this song. Before playing I was like, omg this song is too long... but then it was over. 22 hrs for the amount of work is relatively quick, major props for that! You have found ways to be expressive with all of your sounds.
damn that shit good
Holy cow this
good good good good
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
