Opinion needed - First composition with Ableton

Post by Madureira » Wed Jan 11, 2012 2:54 am

Hi guys,

I bring you today my first composition with Ableton live. This will eventually receive an electric Bass and a electric guitar over this.

Let me know what you think...Overall sound, style, anything really.

Suggestions are welcome.

Oh, and be nice please... :mrgreen:

Nice rhythm, textures, and phrasing. I'm curious to see how it develops.

Nice!

Thanks for your reply.

This is basically a template that I use for a live improv.

I start with a bass loop done with looper, then I jam along the file I posted until halfway the song.

Then, it's electric guitar time! Another loops, solo over the middle section, then fade out.

Any opinions on the sound quality?

Nothing sounds "wrong" or out of place to me, though I'm not sure what you are going for. The sounds are solid and full, good width. The drums get a little overwhelmed by the dubstep-y talking bass and the chord stabs, but again... maybe you're going for a 'drums back' sound?

Left a few timed comments on soundcloud for ya.

Thanks man!

I've tried your suggestions...Especially the first one works really well.

I have to redo a version.

BTW, checked your songs as well...pretty rad stuff!
