Hi folks, since some people here like to make music I thought we should have a place to share our creations!


I'll start out with a track of mine from 1988 - Japanese Girl. Music by me and lyrics and vocals by two friends of mine.

nice, i like it.

i made some lyric-less electronic songs a while ago, and put them on bandcamp recently:

old, more coherent songs:

http://ible.bandcamp.com/album/l-descent

newer, less coherent songs:

http://ible.bandcamp.com/album/lmms-oceanside
Listening to the older songs now.

34 waist and Barber are reminiscent of chiptunes. Dark Chime reminds in the beginning me a lot of Ultima Underworld music. I like it!

Lots of musical ideas in there. You pack each song full of variations instead of repeating a line endlessly like so much electronic music (including much of mine). Sometimes it leads to meandering melodies that fail to hold my attention though.

@Moxie, I can't play your songs in my browser (missing Flash 10 maybe?). All I see are grey boxes.

Pity, I am not allowed to upload Impulse Tracker files. Well, this will have to do.

This is a gibberish project. I made some music (and this was also long ago, before the kids). And then just started rapping gibberish.

Once recorded, I actually could make sense of it, as if I it mixed lots of languages together.

LMMS Oceanside

1. Like a lot sidescroller game music.

5. Could be a dutch summerhit. Change the drums, keep the synth.

7. Like the song a lot for like a game. I notice the same thing I do a lot, change the music a lot inside the same song.

Artorias - Rough Demo

diamond in the rough... very relaxing. Good melody.

Moxie - Electro/Noise

My cousin does Noise too. So this is familiar to my ears. I like Bubblegum. Tunnelbaba not so much. But the bass in Monotfon is great! Especially the end. An extra noise as an afterthought.

So here's some some stuff I've made. It's mostly (pretty oldschool) Acid/Acidtrance:

At the end of all things (Acidtrance): http://www.myownmusic.de/x0xb0xr0ck3r/play/?songid=378706

Pulse (Acid / Chillout): http://www.myownmusic.de/x0xb0xr0ck3r/play/?songid=350507

We call it Acidtrance: http://www.myownmusic.de/x0xb0xr0ck3r/play/?songid=362061

There are a lot more tunes on my myownmusic-page, so feel free to browse & comment (in case you have an account there)

A few years ago (2006) somebody in the gp2x.de Forum asked me to do some music for the action-rpg he was programming. I did  the main-theme, a cave-world & a ice-world tune. Unfortunately the game was never completed (if it ever got off the concept stage), but I still like the Main Theme & Ice-World Theme:

Delibrium Main Theme: http://www.myownmusic.de/x0xb0xr0ck3r/play/?songid=343199

Delibrium Ice-World: Delibrium Main Theme: http://www.myownmusic.de/x0xb0xr0ck3r/play/?songid=343197

Edit: link to the "Ice-World" is now correct

LoopStar, can you post the link to Ice-world (it is a duplicate link now....). Good stuff. With what do you make it, does not sound like a xm/it/mod module.

Thanks for the hint regarding the ice-world link, should be correct now. Also a big thank you for checking out my music, glad you like it! :)

you're right about the tracks not being modules. That's where I started, though (1995 using OctaMED on the Amiga). The "Delibrium" stuff was made using Propellerhead Reason (around 2006 I think), the other tracks are mostly hardware synths recorded into Ableton Live. Right now I'm trying to get my head around working completely DAW-free. This'll take some time, though.

Pyra and the Consequences

I went for a deeper meaning where spelling the Pyra wrong may cause a great war bringing upon destruction of humankind.

This might be bit too complicated for some people to pick up, but I hope you like it.

It has no genre.

none of those tracks play for me (I have a pretty slow connection).

Best for me would be for people to direct link to mp3s or upload to attachments so I can download them and copy them to my stereo system (pandora). Listening to music in my browser sucks.

Is this you playing the guitar? Reminds me a bit of some of the experimental metal I have. You should definitely hear Mr Bungle.

Hey, I guess this might be off topic, but I'm just taking it as a general "music maker" thread.

1) Is there decent free software to synthesize wind instruments? I'm thinking about buying a midi wind controller (which senses breath pressure and lip pressure) and combine it with one of those button-grids for choosing the notes (with breath pressure for loudness/articulation/techniques like frullato and maybe lip pressure for adjusting the note up and down if I want), but I'm not sure what software I need to actually operate it (i.e. record and play wind instruments, in particular the recorder). Would also be interested to create my own custom digital instruments to play like that, but haven't got a clue about how to do that.

2) Could you recommend a microphone for recording one instrument or voice at a time? Good enough to allow mixing several recordings together, for example I could sing one part and play three different parts on different recorders and would then want to mix those together. I'm not "audiophile", if it's good enough to sound decent on my $50 headphones it's enough.

How cheap can I go (definitely not more expensive than $100, preferably less) without getting something completely crappy? What kind of microphone would you recommend?

Especially 2) I guess I could still do some research work on my own, but if you know a simple answer or tips they would be welcome.

(and just on the topic of my music skill set: I play the recorder pretty good, sing much worse than that but I guess okay for a start. Not a composer, no experience with making digital music. If I get a decent microphone I might record some pieces and share them here at some point maybe)

Thanks.  Yeah, I'm not particularly fond of the drums on 5 either, but I was focused on the other stuff...  I wrote those guys using LMMS, which was a bit hard for me after having FL Studio (for the first album).  is there something like a github for open-source music?  it may be fun to collaborate...

Artorias - Rough Demo

diamond in the rough... very relaxing. Good melody.
Agreed.  I like the drums.  Nice work, omega-weapon!
