Tut Tut Child - Dragon Pirates [ Teckmo-X Sample]

As promised I'd be doing samples from time to time during and until the A.I.M. Deadline which will end on June 17th. This is a sample version of Dragon Pirates by Tut Tut Child. He's one of my favorite artists and thus far the only one I know who has an obsession with phasers in pretty much every single one of his songs. He uses a lot of saw structures as well as phasing during his chorus and uprising parts. This divides each lead and bass into two separate pieces and gives off a crisp sound to his music. I tried to duplicate something similar or close to what he does. I use FL Studio for all my music to start off. To duplicate this you need to use specific saws and resonant sounds for your channels. The song is made in a 1/6 snap piano roll but kept drums and bassline at 4/4 time measures. First I worked with getting the main lead part for the song which required listening to the actual song over and over again to get it right. Next I had to find and match the same sounds being used for the song. The beginning I chose an accordion sound from Morphine and tweaked it to sound less abrasive and more subtle for the beginning. For both saw leads I used Sytus one using Hypersaw and the other using Conqueror which were mixed and mastered a bit as to not overpower one another. Last but not least I used Sytrus to get some background bass using Digi preset. The drums were basic from the channel playlist but also using the FPC to get the snare, hats, and cymbals. This is just a sample and meant for educational purposes. Just for fun. Any questions about the sample piece just comment down below and I can answer your question. Enjoy guys!

This song is pretty good. I love it. ^_^ You are my idol. I really love your music. You have inspired me. I will always support you.

Teckmo-X responds:

Thank you! I'm always grateful for my fans and the love they spread. I appreciate the kind words and I'm glad that I motivate and inspire you with some sweet tunes. I appreciate your support always! <3

Would it be OK if I used this for a geometry dash level. I am planning on trying to make a big self created one and looking for a good song and this would be perfect. When the full song is out.

Teckmo-X responds:

Yeah I can allow it. This however is not a full song but can be extended later on. This is a mere sample of Tut Tut Childs song that I made by ear. You can use it for Geometry Dash so long as it's not altered or changed in anyway.
