Here I am on day 2 of this weeks tunes, and I'm finished recording, pretty happy with the mastering on the recordings already and almost done writing drums.
It much less time consuming to master the recordings now. Reasons; I know what reverb I want, what eq frequencies work best/worst for my instruments and minimal work for quantizing them as I've been getting better at playing in time in less takes.
It's so nice to be almost finished for this week. I may actually do things other than work and music, and that's pretty uncommon for these past 10 weeks of my challenge.
So look forward to Friday or Saturday around 6-7 pm PT for my new tune! :D
I've build the tune for this week using midi tracks and plugins only, I was trying to record but everything was feeling stale so I thought I would shake things up a bit. Although this tune is not as different as 'Lost in the Stars' from a few weeks ago.

Of course I might have felt like everything was stale, because I didn't want to spend the same amount of time on it. Due wholly to the fact that I have some Zelda: Breathe of the Wild to play, which incendentally, has been taking up all my spare time.
Hope you guys are having a great week so far! And look forward to the weekend where my tune will come out friday or saturday between 6p-7p PT !!
This weeks tune, I'm currently critically listening to, is likely some of my best solo writing and shows off what I'm capable of. I just hope it's to your liking, which you have to wait until Friday or Saturday between 6p-7p PT to find out.
And listening back to last weeks tune, I thought I should follow the K.I.S.S(keep it simple stupid) method with the drums. I got a little carried away with the kick for the last tune,
(shameless self promote here; http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/730498 )
and it was just excessive/random and at times was taking away from the song as a whole. I will definitely be reworking those drums before album release.

Because of being busy this week, I wasn't planning on make a tune, but then I threw together a pretty excellent piece and recorded it all in 1 day.... Yes, 1 freakin' day and I've been making the drums and mastering today, which is pretty much done as well.
Hope your excited for the weekend, this one will most likely be a friday evening release as that will be the only day I can properly release it. :D
Hope you guys are having a great week so far.
I'm still taken aback about getting everything done in like 2 days.
This weeks loop is not going to be seamless as it has a beginning and end to it. None the less, you will still be able to listen to it on repeat for as long as you want. :)
The tune is funky and features me playing slap bass that I've been working on for the last 5 days, to get it to sound just right.
So, I've decided that even though this tune is a continuation of my weekly challenge, It won't be part of the planned album I've decided to compile with all of the previous loops and future loops of this series.
The reason it's so different is because of it's style, which is electronic - video game/chiptun-ish.
As always, I will be releasing it either tomorrow @ 6-7pm PT or Saturday @ 6-7pm PT
*edit* I just realized that I had reused a similar chord progression in the upcoming tune from the previous tune.... ugggh... I can't believe I did that without noticing up til now... oh well too late to change it.. :(
Just to get straight to the point.
I pulled a muscle at work yesterday and it's left me pretty weak, I won't be able to play and record guitars this week for my Friday/Saturday loop. So I've thought about it and came up with using my Midi keyboard and making a loop using VST's for this week.
With that said, I'll be starting it today, as yesterdays attempts at writing were quite fruitless.
This weeks loop is gonna be SICK! I'm getting pumped to show it off, and I hope it gets received well!
I'm just in the midst of building the drums and mastering it, should be done in a timely fashion and may even be able to publish this tomorrow evening as long as I don't find any new problems. :P
Check in around 7-8pm PT tomorrow to listen to my submission!
Bye! going back to mastering.
Just thought I would be more consistent with some updates,
So... writing started off great and now it's hit a wall, which is to be expected with forcing my creativity and inspiration instead of waiting for it. But I will keep working away at it, and have something to post this Friday or Saturday, most likely saturday as I am quite busy this friday.
Moral of the story(lol)
If you really want to excel at your craft, you have to push past the hard times with your eyes set on the goal and never give up.
wow.... sorry guys, this is really corny. Anyways, have a good week guys and look forward to the weekend. :D
My 3rd loop for my friday loops challeng is in the works, it's just been difficult to finish recording as there have been many changes and retakes involved. Hopefully it will be available this Saturday around noon or 7pm ish PT.
Thanks for being apart of my newgrounds, even if we are only a few.
Have a good friday! and look forward to the weekend!
