Right, I’ve finally found an artist name with a bit of help. It’s been a long damn journey, but I’ve settled on something finally. I’ll reveal it once I release The Beginning (I’ll hopefully have things (logo and what not) created and setup by then).
Speaking of The Beginning, since I won’t post any more WIP’s, I figure I’d just throw out an image of how it’s looking inside my DAW, Studio One 3 Professional, because that’s super exciting, right? Still a few things to do on it, but it’s increasingly edging closer to completion. 🙂
Just thought I’d make it known what the status of the track is, since there won’t be any more WIP’s posted. The reason for that? It’s close to being done. Yes, my very first actual track is close to being done – that’s pretty damn exciting (for me at least 😉 )!
The more detailed status is that I’m currently working on the intro portion of the track. I’m not entirely happy with it right now, so I still need to try some things out to get it to a state I can sign off on.
After that I’ll start doing some small tweaks if I feel there’s a need. Try out some different things to see if I can enhance any particular part with what ideas I have.
Then of course after that there’s mixing and mastering, but I’ve sort of done a lot of that already. Never the less it’s still going to take a bit of time to do properly.
I’m really looking forward to releasing my first ever trance track very soon! It’s been a very long journey to get to this point, so it’s really exciting to see that I’m about to reach that goal. 🙂
Looks like I will manage to finally complete a track! Trance 08 has now evolved into what it will become once I complete it, which is “The Beginning”. The right name for what will become my first completed track. 🙂
With that said I’ve made more progress and I’m starting to flesh out the rest of the bits of the track, which is mostly the intro and outtro at this point. The focus now is to get that done and then fiddle more with all the small things here and there, because there’s certainly things I want to improve.
Anyway, here you go – the latest (and first, heh) WIP of The Beginning!
A few notes about the track, for those interested: Hive is used for the main pluck as well as the lead sound, and I’ve made both of those sounds myself. Spire, Serum and Nexus are used for other sounds, with mostly tweaked presets.
It’s in C# minor and the BPM is 138.
And in closing here’s the cover for this particular track. 🙂
So quite a bit has happened with Trance 08 since I last posted an update. It’s actually closing in on being a full track now, which I guess is kind of nice? 🙂
But since so much has happened with it, I figure it’s time for an update, so here you go! Current big problem is that the middle of it is a little, well, boring. It’s missing something right now, so I’ll have to look into that and I already have a few ideas for what I can try out.
Anyway, give it a listen and feedback is as always appreciated! 🙂
Just playing around some more with this Trance 08 track (until I move it into a proper track and starting real work on it). I’m still sorting out melodies and chord progressions while trying various things. It’s important to note that what you’re hearing here is just ideas and not necessarily something that’ll end up in the proper track.
But yeah, a whole bunch of stuff has been played around with. For instance there’s sort of a proper build-up into a drop now. I think it works quite well, but would need some fleshing out to really work – the idea is there at least.
