Baljeet's beats is our first look into transposing/modifying the notes of loops given to us. This was so the track would flow better together and not sound out of place. I wanted a more fast paced Japanese techno style beat but unfortunately most of the loops let me down on keeping up that mood so I worked with what I had. As I'm still getting used to able-ton, the flow of the song is pretty wack and there are obvious bits where the transition to the next part could have TOTALLY been better but what can I say rookie mistakes. As for the energy like I said I wanted to keep it fast paced to match the starting loop of the song but most of the fast spaced techno loops didn't fit the mood which is why I had a wider arrange of choices to choose from like I did with sound-trap. To mix the song all I've done so far is but a tempo cap in the masters and change the volume plus pan of some of the beats. My mixing skills are still pretty lackluster and I'm not comfortable enough to test changing the pan/volume throughout the song. Overall the most enjoyable part from this project was listening to all of the different samples given to us in each 3 genres and mixing those together to make a beat. The most important thing I learned from making this beat is to keep everything in 1 or similar notes to not create discord in your song.
My first project in Ableton was to take 1 of 5 samples that our teacher gave us and make a beat out of it. I went with sample 2 as I enjoyed the trap sample the most out of all of them. I experimented with the different basses,synths, and drums of the sample before recording this piece of music. This was the first time I also changed the panning mid beat to move the sound around and I found that a very interesting tool to use later.
Rushing back remix
The rushing back remix was the first time I actually remixed an already existing song. It was also the first time I had different loops to work with the different parts of the song and the first time I dealt with having lyrics on my beat. It was a challenge I have to admit sound trap definitely felt like it was limiting but it was fun none the less. My favorite part of this song was at 2:00 I feel heavily proud about that bit.
Williams Beats was the first time I created my own drums for my beat. I started off with creating the drums first starting off with a steady beat of kicks and adding the snares later. After doing that I found loops that I liked and started adding on to what I already had. After I was done I had the first set down but it sounded to repetitive to me. On the look for more loops I found a very boss battle time loop and decided to make my beat give off a more 8-bit feel with a boss battle in between. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with this beat and will probably leave it where it is.
Im Tired was the very first beat I created. You might have guessed but given by the name I was very tired while making this beat as I was having personal trouble during that time of the year. Its mighty repetitive and doesn't have any drums but I plan on coming back to this one day and making it better probably with the help of some friends ;).
