Yee haa! Thanks for that. Creative confidence is a difficult thing when you first start writing your own material. It’s all very well playing it to people I know, however, it is very valuable for me to get candid opinions from people I don’t know and who can be very honest.
Your welcome buddy .
Maybe we can get more submissions and comments.
If I get my act together,I may try a submission.
I’m still a sound cloud philistine but need to join so I can share…
Is it only OP1 tracks or is other instruments ok as well? If ok with other i could maybe add a couple of tracks…totally beginner style in music
No - it’s not only OP-1 tracks. Any of your own music is welcome.
Ok…so lets go then…here u got my first ever ever made music. Been a dj for a long time but decided that i wanted to learn how to make some own sounds…not with a goal for releasing or such., just for myself.
i added it to the playlist of music critique club also
Thanks! Wrote all of ur suggestion and tips down. Actually have the track still on the machines so i will try out all of the above. And i have to say that this thread is very helpful to get another view on the music you make. I like it a lot…its so easy to get a bit blind when making music and hearing it for a long period of time.
And thanks for the welcome
All the best to u all
Many thanks @yoof. Really appreciate your views.
funny that your friend had a similar comment. I see, so you added a kind of sub bass component to the kick as an experiment. Good to know you had a play with that, and fair play if you still preferred the original kick. To my ears, it sounds good during the main mix, it’s just the very beginning and very end of the track where the kick is on it’s own that I noticed something.
@Fleuw - I enjoyed listening to your track.
@cloudburst Hi! Thanks for listning and the critic. Always good to hear from other people. This track was just recorded straight to a Zoom H6. No mixing or audio editing after recording. Only thing i did was cut out the empty part in the beginning and end in audicity.
Great critiques boys. I will deffo be leaning on this advice.
Hi there @tetsugakusha66 - someone else did also make that point to me - so I will take on board. To be truthful - the track happened unintentionally. I’d decided to experiment with putting our vocalists voice through a vocoder to try to learn how to control it and the track sort of accidentally grew up around it.
i’m glad to see this group getting some action again. I’ve been writing some stuff on the OP-1 during my lunch breaks at work, here are a couple tracks. all the tracks are composed and recorded to album on OP-1, then converted to MP3 on media.io and uploaded to soundcloud - so the start/finishes are a little rough. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
