    Elpherz-Air City (Status: Demo)

    I made something. No samples, all me. This program really sucks. Oh well.

    Here's some ambient noise for you: http://www.supload.com/listen?s=41jG69

    I tried uploading it to NG, but it either hasn't been reviewed, or they denied it(since when I submitted it earlier, I later on realized that there WAS a sample in there, on accident).

    I'll probably be changing it if I get and feed back. I added the status thing, as it's not really done.

    Re: Elpherz-Air City

    When you say no sampling, what exactly do you mean?

    Did you actually take a synthesizer, write a melody, play it and then spend hours mixing it until it sounded just right? Or did you take a bunch of premade melodies and ran them through various preset instruments?

    It's not that I don't believe you made it or anything, but before I can give a good opinion on it, it'd be nice to know how much work you put into it. I know you said that you didn't use any samples, but the definition of "sample" is so vague that it's hard to understand what that means.

    Re: Elpherz-Air City

    I wrote it all out myself, yes. Nothing pre-made.

    I made it actually save right this time: http://www.supload.com/listen?s=luDJiH

    I still need an actual melody. I'm kind of doing it backwards. I didn't have any plans for it, making it up as I go along. >_>

    I think you're confused on the meaning of the word "samples".

    If you didn't use samples, you made all the sounds yourself. Samples are just sounds you use to make the music.

    I think it's arranged in order of laziness lol. The purist records everything. The "middlemen" (most of us) use samples of single sounds and string them together to create a song. The lazy musicians use loops, which are pre-made drum beats etc that come with a program, i.e. zero creativity.

    Purist, middleman or noob. WHICH ONE ARE YOU? OLOLOLO

    I didn't use anything pre-made. No loops. No samples "strung together". I had to write everything out myself.

    Now, if someone could comment on the actual song. I'm stuck on what to do to improve it.

    Really? What instruments were you using? They're awesome if you recorded them.

    Not actual instruments. I wrote all of the notes/beats out. I didn't use pre-recorded stuff. I'm planning on maybe recording over with bass and stuff though. Although I don't think my computer could take it though. I was just saying I didn't use anything that came with the program.

    Edit: Added another synth in some spots, it's subtle, but it makes a difference. http://www.supload.com/listen?s=41jG69

    No. It doesn't. I still had to make everything. You can't really make any of that with actual instruments.

    Why do you guys care so much? Damn it. Just say something about the song already.
