[Listen] New track -- Environment 01

My first "true" environmental recording with minimal alteration -- only used the limiter, volume normalizer, and some track volume automation. Recorded at the edge of the south waterfront in Portland.

Re: finally... BITWIG STUDIO! beta soon...

I got the beta email this morning. FWIW, I can't seem to login, and the password reset doesn't work. I emailed them about it. We'll see. Maybe the site's under heavy load right now?

[Listen] New track: "Above the horizon"

It's a dark ambient + noise type of deal with lots of grain delay.

New track -- Water's edge

I've been in a rut lately and not happy with my last couple tracks. But, hey, at least I'm producing something. I can always delete these later.

[Listen] Two new songs. Mellow drone bliss...

Usually I make each new song use a new sample, but in this case, I made an exception. The second song, Rising air, I made when, while working on the first song, I hit upon a particular combination of pitch-shifting and a certain MIDI note that produced everything I love about drone music.

Freight train: alien sounds interrupt a peaceful night

Hypnotic ambient track made entirely from a recorded sample of my voice (me saying the letter "A"), with heavy manipulation and composition in Ableton Live, of course.

How do I change the octave for my LDP8?

[Listen] Workshop -- new ambient track with a creepy vibe

I've been horribly sick for the past 11 days, so what should have been a few hours of final touches turned into a week of barely any progress because of my foggy brain.

BTW, this is a birthday track. I turned 32 today!

Re: Can someone explain the Export -> Normalize option?

Thanks, guys. That helps a lot. I had been self-mastering and trying to get at close to 0.0 db as possible, but I will do the -0.3 thing from now on.

Can someone explain the Export -> Normalize option?

I'm confused on whether I should use it. What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Thanks.

Dark engine -- new track!

I recorded the vibrating plastic at the bottom of a MAX ticket machine late one night, and then... did stuff to it in Ableton. :-D
