Single Status Update
So, given that So Deep is one of my favorite songs (ever), I decided to make a remix of it. I've worked on this one a while (about two months), and so far it is definitely one of my better tracks. I've gotten better from last year, no doubt, and my recording methods have improved for learning all this on my own.
The idea of the remix was to only use the Perfect Sphere melody as a sort of backround track while the focus was on an enhanced Original Mix melody that was larger in sound, as well as a different structruing of the song. No samples were used at all, as this was all done by hand in a midi. There's some twinkling/hiss that I just noticed as I listened to it, but that's apparently the mp3, as I didn't hear it in the wave.
Constructive comments are welcome:
Incase you're interested, here's the list of stuff used:
-Roland JV-1010 Synth module
-Boss DR-202 Dr. Groove drum machine
-Beringer Eurorack mixer
-Casio WK-1630 as a control keyboard
-GoldWave 5 for recording the tracks, and Sonic Foundry ACID-4.0 for mixing them
-CakeWalk 9.0 interfaced with a 2x2 MIDI port thingie.
-SB Audigy soundcard

I know. But to achieve a more individual sound I might want some hardware. Reason tracks sometimes tend to sound quite similar, despite the differences between artists, simply because software has it's limits too. Unless you're using software that's capable of using plugins.
Does anyone know a good piece of software to screw around with wave files, like Wavelab?
Right, like you need even that nowadays. Most DJ FillInTheBlank's come from some teenage sexhound who warezed FruityLoops or Rebirth. Or both.
I can't stand software synths. They just don't sound like hardware, regardless of what program or quality of software. Besides, it's the feeling of grabbing knobs, hitting keys, etc, that feels good with hardware. I only use software for sequencing and recording.
And Disorder, try GoldWave. It does some cool things to WAV files.
