Rp's Music Thread
Aight, well as y'all know (I'm from Texas, so I'm allowed to say y'all), I'm a pianist. In general, that's solo work so your style has to be self contained with one instrument.

SO, I was thinking, you know, why not download FL Studio demo and see what it's like with multiple things.

So, foolishly, I jumped right in and started messing around XD

Anyway, I have not read any tutorials or anything, so I reeeally don't know what I'm doing, but I figured I'd throw my first two "let's do this and that and this other thing and see what happens" songs up here.

Neither of the following have an "ending" per say.

First one was just a test of throwing together multiple instruments together for a song to see what it'd sound like.

The next one was, well, I don't know. I was in a weird mood, so I tried doing a techno-ish one.

Now I need to start learning the program. Tutorials, here I come! Anyone know any good ones? Also, if I decide to get into it, I'll buy FL Studio 9. Anyone know any good music bundles I should also get(free or otherwise)?

god damned texans, more like southern oklahoman

RpTheHotrod 04-18-2010 02:36 PM

Whoa now, you're just askin' for trouble, son. We ain't no Brokelahomions.

Dath Maximus 04-18-2010 03:50 PM

being from kansas, i know that refering to anyone as an oklahoman is like the greatest insult there is

RpTheHotrod 04-25-2010 02:06 AM

Test3 up :)

IG-64 04-25-2010 02:39 AM

I really like the latest one. Getting more into the kind of techno I prefer (which I think is futurepop/synthpop).

jon_hill987 04-25-2010 04:14 AM

Seems like a good start for someone who has not tried a tutorial. I would recommend uploading them as mp3 files (320kbps) in the future as the youtube compression makes anything sound hideous.

Youtube is not for music people!

RpTheHotrod 04-25-2010 04:39 AM

Oh, I agree about youtube. It sucks for music!

Any ideas for easy access listening where people don't have to download the files to listen?

jon_hill987 04-25-2010 09:05 AM

Ah yes, if you want people to be able to stream it there are not any other options I know of. They may exist though...

Work in progress
Still a lot of change/tweak on it, not to mention put more of a song into it. I just threw together a quick ending so it didn't feel like a drop at the end.

Massive work in progress, but I figured I'd share it so far :) Step.mp3

Dath Maximus 05-22-2010 09:55 PM

first sucks

having said that, i will now download it and actually listen to it

First thoughts: Dath's sig makes me lulz

Cool. It seems to me to be a kind of bittersweet tune. Something you would see in a romcom when both leads are required to do something that separates them but they feel obligated to do anyway.

RpTheHotrod 05-26-2010 11:19 AM

What do you get when you cross a High Elf with a Dance Club?
So EverQuest is going through a contest and celebration type'a'thang. I have not played EverQest in over a decade, but I jumped in and was like....hellz yeah! Let's celebrate!

I then followed up by corrupted their beaufitul, elfy, lovey dovey theme song and posted it on their forums. (warning, LOUD!)

Get down, elven folk! Wooo!

ChAiNz.2da 05-26-2010 11:30 AM

I like your version better.. hehe :sbdance

RpTheHotrod 06-02-2010 11:34 PM

Exorcist o-o
So I was foolin' around on the keyboard with the exorcist theme song (I've always found it intriguing!) and I kept adding to it more and more and so far I'm up to this XD Not finished though.

(youtube craps out audio quality, beware)

So, the real question is....while people play beautiful music on the piano, why does exorcist come to my head to doodle with? o-o

jon_hill987 06-03-2010 05:18 AM

It is called Tubular Bells. Though it was used in the opening for The Exorcist it wasn't specifically written for it.

Most people don't know what Tubular Bells is, so I was just saying it was from Exorcist since most know what that is. To be more specific, it's called "Sentinel". Go Mike!

IG-64 06-03-2010 08:56 AM

Not bad. I particularly liked parts starting at 0:35 1:08 and 1:38. Keep making songs, I like them. :p

Also, merged your music threads so you can keep them in one spot.

OK, You're forgiven. :)

People who don't know it need educating though.

How much'd FL Studio run you? ;D

I bought the fullest edition, so it was about $300 before expansions and other VSTs.

RpTheHotrod 07-04-2010 01:36 AM

It has been bugging me that I did not make an ending (right now it just cuts out). I still have not added a good one, but I threw together a placeholder ending to it. Also, just for jon_hill987, I added a true exorcist piano roll in there!

ZBomber 07-06-2010 12:50 AM

Excellent stuff! :thumbsup:

RpTheHotrod 07-06-2010 11:22 AM

Hey, whaddup Z! :D

acdcfanbill 07-06-2010 02:44 PM

still nice stuff :)

RpTheHotrod 08-02-2010 09:08 PM

Two things :p

1: I spruced up the temporary ending, tho it'll change drastically once I learn my next phase...still...if you're interested...


I'm going on a massive amount of a lack of sleep right now, and I figured...why not imagine a song where there are a bunch of undead dolls dancing around the room in the a point where they come alive and start pouncing and slashing and... o-o

but yeah...I'm that tired. I'm tired enough to have just simply thrown this together with a mix of sound samples and a few custom sounds. Cheap, but...I need I'm cutting the song off right now...sorry. Zzzzz

Don't let the dolls get you!

RpTheHotrod 01-26-2011 10:14 PM

Teh spookz...

acdcfanbill 01-27-2011 01:46 AM

eerie, could be straight out of John Carpenter's The Thing :p

RpTheHotrod 01-28-2011 02:07 PM

Haha! The low end bass notes ( the 4 then later 2 ) was inspired by the thing. I remember those simple notes gave me the creeps back in the day.

RpTheHotrod 09-07-2011 10:37 PM

I found a transformer hiding in my machine.
