I have a Korg Kross 61. I have a SoundCloud with no electronic music (yet) but some tracks I played/arranged on the Kross. And I’m getting used with LMMS and FL Studio to try my hand at PC-based music making, with two projects I had in my mind for a long time.
I’d love to have a proper audio interface and Ableton Live, but I don’t have money for either, so I try to manage with what I do have. ;)
I have no synths, no music hardware (acoustic guitar aside, which my dad has had for a few years now) and no Soundcloud! I’ve just always had a passing interest in some of the processes of making and recording music and sound. I don’t necessarily understand much of it but I hugely respect it.
At university I did quite a bit of sound recording/sampling and manipulating for interactive pieces, usually accompanying animation. For that I used SoundForge but these days it’s Audacity and I’ve got access to Adobe CC so that’s Audition which I haven’t used yet.
I’ll be sure to swing by here with any interesting stuff I come across!
@krayzkrok I like that stuff! As I clicked on the link, I wondered if there would be any crocodile representation on the page, and you did not disappoint!
I have the cheap copy of Ableton and an Akai MPK Mini. That’s about what my budget and space can support. I’m almost entirely self-taught, so pretty much everything I’ve made is… rough. I want to spend some time with some more formal electronic music production education.
My problem is that I’ve never really had a preservation strategy for my musical excretions. There’s at least one song each on our family’s iMac (now gone), my college laptop (hasn’t been touched in around ten years, jury’s out on whether it’ll boot), our iPad (a few songs split between BeatMaker 2 and GarageBand), and my desktop. None of those have been uploaded anywhere, nor do I think most of them should be. I do hate the more recent stuff less, though, so it probably deserves to live somewhere.
I have trouble finishing things (like everyone who makes music) but sometimes I stumble on an idea I like, even if I can’t do anything with it in the long run :(
Here’s a quick 7 second loop of an industrial thing I worked on a bit:
I also like setting instruments to midi I find online, here’s Bloody Tears:
Edit: I’m exhausted enough to post this. I almost never share. Also, this means you guys have to share too. Also I’m bad. :D Apologies for edits breaking the embed if you happened to be listening during the edits.
Really cool stuff! I’ll share more as soon as I can, but it might take a while.
BTW, I might be (finally) buying a proper audio interface this week. Best choice around here is probably the Steinberg Ur22mkii, so I’m probably getting that. And Reaper. And then let’s see what happens. ;)
I do have this odd improvisation I did on my Korg 01/W ages ago, but it is an improvisation of various themes over a piano-with-delayed-percussion kind of sound. I like it but it’s fragmented, incomplete, and far from eletronic music, so I’m not sure it would be nice to share, even more with the great sounding stuff already in this thread, but maybe I will. ;)
