#Rpm Day15 Song5 v4

I started out really wanting to do 2 tracks today, but I only got one out. But it is complete. I would still love to tweak it some more — layering and work out what’s going on with it all, BUT it’s done for RPM. I’ll pick it up again at the end if there is time. I really enjoyed working with this song. It is something different, and that’s always great when melodies come along and aren’t what you know. Also need a name for this one… apparently ‘Pigs with Wheels’ is now taken, people.

Hunz Song5 Version4

 

Verse
You call me, yeah, always.
I just found the phone.
Can I clean the driveway,
The entrance to home?

 

Chorus
My heart it floods with emotions
While, my eyes deny what I see
My mind can’t stop the commotion
And I need you now; release me

 

Verse
I’ll hold you in sorrow
When I get back there
It might be tomorrow
Do you want my care?

 

Chorus
My heart it floods with emotions
While, my eyes deny what I see
My mind can’t stop the commotion
And I need you now; release me
My heart it floods with emotions
While, my eyes deny what I see
My mind can’t stop the commotion
And I need you now; release me

 

Bridge
Go! I didn’t know you’d go, I didn’t know you.

 

Chorus
My heart it floods with emotions
While, my eyes deny what I see
My mind can’t stop the commotion
And I need you now release me

 

  • Don’t know why, but it’s taking ages for my laptop [xps1330] to boot
  • 3 resets and then I unplugged everything, saw it fix the problem
  • Working on Song5
  • I’m going to mix the drums a bit first. I want to make it more lazy and messy.
  • Really want the sounds to be more awkward
  • Snare is leading the 1 beat. I’m going to create a fake 1 count for it by adding another snare channel with more bottom end/mids.
  • A one count is something used in funk where EVERYTHING, no matter what, has to at least have something going on the one beat on the phrase. This helps create the funk.
  • I split the snare up. I cause a delay on the high end and distort the low end.
  • Decided to delay the low end of the snare send (10-15ms) and then resend the original send into the snare master.
  • Thick and a bit phaz-ee
  • Placed Scream Filter on high end pass sound – pleasant surprise.
  • Tweaked it a bit, and this will help flavor the one
  • Going to get a crash going. No this isn’t a BSOD moment; it’s a Crash Cymbal
  • Don’t know if people realize this, but I tend not to use crashes. Personally they hurt my ears, and there are other ways to do what they do in music.
  • In this case the Crash is a perfect “in your head” moment where you know it usually hits on the one, so it’ll help compliment the awkward count of this tune.
  • This is a perfect time to announce that I love sends in Renoise. It’ll be neater when they have groups and channels that you can expand and write in, but this works a charm.
  • Putting on a light verb on the Kit Master then using Pre-delay to help with the messiness
  • Pulling accents out of the chorus for the drums to follow
  • It is sounding very indie electronic. Nice.
  • Also managed to get some double kick action in there for my drummer.
  • Trying to write lyrics .. T_T .. it’s hard, people, very hard to write lyrics. I feel like the chorus is so cliche, makes me sad.
  • Lol, there are baby birds making this hideous high pitch noise. Going to put that in the break down if I can.
  • Lunch
  • Came back fresh ears putting down bridge bit
  • Going to layer this out and then stop it to bring in chorus.
  • Going to be a nice escape moment but with energy in it.
  • Just mixing and arranging trying to find the right balance in everything
  • doing vocals takes again
  • finishing up the track again
  • the mix is really rough and has lost some dynamics. the vocals are too loud
  • Wow took over 10mins to render .. scary!

 

It is time for bed people. I have decided to take Song8 version1 and make that a new song. So I have completed the 10 (is that cheating .. lol). I’ll be taking some time off work to put this together, AND I have some much needed help, which I’ll announce tomorrow. And everyone said .. “HUZZAH!” I think I can do this people, if not we at least have 3 nice tunes .. huh, huh? When I get tired, I get a bit silly .. excuse me.

    The slice between 1m:36s to 2m:22s kicks major ass :)

  2. Triangle Square Says:

    Great song. I really like it. Perhaps, “I Need You” or “my Heart Floods” would be the best titles for this song. So when are you going to get to work on that song from day 03? I’m dying to hear a finished version.

  3. hunz Says:

    I’m saving Song 3 because it is going to be easier to put together … which makes me think it might not .. lol. Soon, so soon.

  4. hunz Says:

    Ahh, thanks. If I get time, I’m going to make that part another bar longer it kinda needs more time to escape to it.
