    Soundcloud Share Thread

    Or wherever you upload music that you make. Not necessarily pros, more for homebodies, like me, that like to play and do stuff with music as a hobby. I'm too old to want to be a rock star anymore.

    I use soundcloud, and I've only recently started writing and recording with more focus. Got tired of learning other people's songs and piling up riffs and ideas. But I don't want to annoy myself by playing with people, and I don't want to annoy them. So I do what I can on my own.

    Most is done in GarageBand using my iPad with an iRig, and my guitars and bass with my pedals and/or in-app effects. Nothing fancy, quick & dirty.

    I do short instrumentals.

    I transferred some weary old 80s cassettes into MP3s a few months ago and put them on Soundcloud.

    These are pre -Helmet of Gnats tunes with Poor Mrs Attenborough being the earliest from 1980.

    We were in are late teens then.

    Dolls is a cool 90s track from an unreleased album by Wayne Zito's old band The Electric Fish.

    Wayne joined HoG in 2000.

    Thanks. I'm on a real 80s kick lately with lots of compression and chorus.
    Got a neat Boss Multi Overtone pedal for my birthday that gave me those Hammond-esque tones on Calculated Risk.

    Dolls is fusiony fun. Nice and warm, and I like the creepy image you used for it.
    Little Touches has that quintessential 70s/80s piano with sax solo. Fantastic!
    Love the continuous build of Beaming With Pride.

    It's not something that I composed myself but rather something my son plays a this synth that I made for him.

    https://soundcloud.com/wes-grist


    He does a Friday night show on Trent Radio, Peterborough Ontario Canada where the music is mostly created in one take on the fly.
    He uses Olias on stage since it's his middle name, can you tell he has prog fan parents?

    This is what he is playing it on:

    Great sounding stuff frinspar - nice production values there, also really enjoyed the Poor Mrs Attenborough track which has a 70's classic prog rock sound IMO - particularly like the synth lead on that and some nice almost Phil Miller-esque guitar lines in their too, and congrats on putting that synth together dang! Some talented folks here for sure.

    I pretty much forgot about this, but my old band Tamandua has five of the eight tracks from our album Eternal Anteater of the Universe on Soundcloud. Can't believe that sucker is the years old already.

    Chris, thanks for listening. I'm glad you dug it. I liked the tracks you posted as well. Don't know if you remember, but I saw you open for VDGG up here in Boston and was also at your Magic Room show. I know we said hello at at least one of those.

    Kim, you were a fan from the get go. Thanks for the love.

    Keep sharing, dudes.

    Thanks guys. Building the synth was the easy part for me. It's getting something other than cacophony out of it in real time that I need to leave to others more tunefully inclined.

    Bump

    Just for fun, my take on the classic JT Song, joining Wondering Aloud with the last verse of Wondering Again. Done rather quickly using Izotope Spire Studio overdubbing "live to tape". So this is a rough sketch of something TBD and polished once I have a proper DAW set-up.

    I've found Spire Studio to be a quick and easy way to record ideas.

    Thanks for the positive feedback. For some reason the Soundcloud sounds awful (well not as good as my local file), it's slowed down and kinda messed up. Any ideas about that?

    ... and yes the Spire has been a great little tool. Although very limited, you can get surprisingly great sound quality out of it and the set-up is so simple, plug in a guitar and a mic, select an effect or use your own, a quick sound check and boom you are ready to record in literally 60 seconds.

    It sounded fine when I listened on my Sony MDR-7506 headphones through a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 audio interface.

    I read an article about getting the best sound on Soundcloud and that is to upload in WAV or FLAC format because when SC compresses the file you are only compressing it once.
    If you upload a mp3 file it's compressed already and then when it goes through the SC compression system it winds up being compressed twice in the end.
    Also if you're going to allow downloads, SC does allow the song to be downloaded in it's original format such as WAV.

    That's harmonically pretty interesting and a bit funky. Would be nice to turn into a full arrangement. Nice first attempt!

    Back at ya with Old Man Groove.
