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.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3-2UE-9Vhc&fmt=18


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)?

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

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!

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?

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

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.

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!)

Before:

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)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKA5OsO6KQU&fmt=18


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

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!

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

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.

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

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!

Two things

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

http://www.mediafire.com/file/52p3i7...2sy/Test6f.mp3


and..

2:
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 darkness...to 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 sleep....so I'm cutting the song off right now...sorry. Zzzzz

Don't let the dolls get you!

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.
