#Rpm Day1 Song1 v1 & Song2 v2

So getting up early was out, I slept in till 8:30 and then proceeded to clean up a bit so I could get into the mood of song writing. So I started, it was rough but I did manage to get 2 songs out. Here is what happened .. (errr, it’s a bit boring :-P )

Hunz RPM01 01

  • drew a sample on the screen.
  • split up the highs and the lows with a send.
  • pushed the highs into a panning stereo situation.
  • created a chord progression.
  • didn’t create a vibe for me.
  • found a nice loop from a sample cd.
  • cut it up.
  • reprogrammed / pitched shifted everything around and made a beat.
  • drew a bass sample.
  • got those 2 working together.
  • felt the vibe.
  • created chords and melodies.
  • started singing out a basic melody.
  • scraped the singing.
  • listened again found something nicer.
  • as the loop played I sung the chorus
  • I then shifted the song around the singing I had created.
  • I completed my 1st sketch and moved on.

Hunz RPM 02 02

  • found an old hiphop loop
  • cut up the loop into fragments
  • split out the drums
  • created a snare split (highs/lows)
  • used the hihats really low with the snare to create some body
  • found a neat button I’ve never seen before in renoise autoamp
  • Starting playing with it and noticed it reaches a threshold and created FM distortion like stuff
  • created a melody around this
  • created another melody that is more me
  • Everything locked together
  • Sung over the top of everything and sung a chorus over the verse
  • Wrote a chord progression for the chorus

 
As you can hear, I mix as I write. It helps me get into the mood of the song and hear where it wants to take me. When I started this morning I also opened up the Bible to Joshua and I gazed down on its words. ‘Terrified’ was the word I connected with. It’s such and awesome word, that best described uncertainty in time of change and economic sadness.
 

Am feeling very optimistic. I feel like I could do this. Hope you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you think of the tunes.

    This is great stuff! I’m using Renoise as well. Good luck!

    This is very impressive for such little work! Gosh it would take me months to develop melodies like that, but then again there’s something to be said for concentrated momentum with creativity. The build in the second track with the FM riff is especially nice.

    Some mix issues, but that’s to be expected this early on. Mostly to do with the low end being too epic. Give us a yell if you need a hand with the mixes at all.
