The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Not going to clutter up the main forum for this stuff....I'll chuck stuff I'm working on for TV/film/personal stuff ITT.

This is supposed to be a club bang/EDM type thing going on in the background at a frat party. Submitted tonight.

Sounds really cool. Is that the Mutations?

Re: TechNOPE. Clip

Thu Jun 15, 2017 4:23 pm

Part of it, yeah. There's some other Kontakt stuff in there as accents too.

Thanks for the listen...have a feeling you and I will be the only ones in the thread lol.

32 seconds of random weirdness. Violins, cellos, a weird ambient pad and some chick singing.

Dude it's a fuckin BLAST and you're right.

I'm like $1,000 in and just spent $600 more.

:facepalm:

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Tue Jul 25, 2017 12:29 pm

So this is where you should stop. :lol: dive in to what you have and force yourself to only use what you got. Master it before fucking around with a bunch of other shit.

I say this, because I'm gear-money broke, and it's what I've had to do recently. I'm a better "producer" because of it though. For sure you got plenty of shit to make some cool industrial jams. Don't get all ADD with the shit. :cop:

It is! I love screwing with this shit when I have downtime at work. If nothing else it gets me some extra practice with mixing and I end up using different aspects of Ableton that I wouldn't normally go to.

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Wed Jul 26, 2017 10:41 am

Right? Totally different type of thing. Rhythms are different, playing piano is fun, and there are all sorts of weird soundscapes you can make for no reason at all!

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

I really want the NI FM8 and Massive, along with Kontour and a couple other modular effects.

Really I want all of their shit, except for their EQ's and mixing tools. With the Slate everything bundle I feel very well covered on the mixing front.

I need a good electronic percussion plugin too though, now that I think of it.

Take a look at NI Damage, dude. That thing is badass.

Thanks hommie.....this is just some weird shit I do around here and with some friends. Not too many guys around here into this, but there are a few of us. I don't like to clutter the main forum with this stuff as I just record ideas for this shit when it hits me and then post these clips....sometimes 2-3 a day.

Speaking of which, expanded on the Creepy theme above, added some drums and a new melody. This one is coming along....still amateur hour for it tho. :lol:

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Fri Jul 28, 2017 5:59 pm

only my opinions. i am no professional. just honest feedback.

lots of potential here. you should do a full and polished recording. the drums and vocals are awesome. as well as some of the orchestral work. little more in depth melody lines and progression would finish bringing it all together i think. i'd really enjoy hearing a full recording.

Appreciate the listen and the feedback man....I'm not there yet though. This is just working out ideas, seeing what plays and what doesn't. You know I'll chuck it in here when I do something final.

Plus I honestly just started with this, and have zero idea how to actually mix it lol. Working on it though!

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Remix for the creepy thing above...sounds better to my ears:

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:30 am

sounds like a warcraft soundtrack

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:57 am

Never played it.....good thing or bad thing?

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:06 am

good thing, as the warcraft soundtrack is straight up orchestral work with similar beats that seems like it's in an infinite build up.

i've also never played it. had the soundtrack given to me.

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Tue Aug 01, 2017 8:29 pm

Going at some weird horror type stuff for a show.

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Thu Aug 03, 2017 4:35 pm

Same one as above, but I grabbed the Slate bundle and chucked some stuff at this....think it sounds better now. Submitting for American Horror Story.

Just seeing this thread now and listened to everything. Awesome job man!! These are excellent! Definitely subscribed. 99% of what i post is "stuff no one wants to hear" so i'm all about it.... :lol:

Where are you submitting this stuff? I've been wanting to do the same for film and tv but only through crappy "pay to play" sites. Trying to learn the legit way that people end up doing this for a living.

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Fri Aug 04, 2017 9:55 am

Thanks man...appreciate the listen and encouragement.

As far as where I submit this stuff...I have some friends in the industry that'll kick me a bit of work or ask if they can use a track or two. I also use Songtradr. That one IS sort of a pay to play site but you get credits every month for free...you can buy more if you'd like but I never do. They post up ads for wanted music and if it's up your alley you do up a track and submit it. I probably do one or two a month there, depending on what comes up as far as the ads....a buddy and I got really into the AHS ad the last few days and submitted 5 each...we both got shortlisted last night so those will probably go.

This isn't anything serious for me....the money is decent but I'd never want to do it for a living or anything. It's just a different way to make 'music' using different tools.

As far as being serious about it.....you're going to need a demo reel. Bunch of film clips with the sounds stripped out that you score to as an audition tape type thing, which then gets sent to agents to see if they'll take you on. That leads to work, which leads to more work which leads to you scoring for TV and or film.

Be aware that this is a rabbit hole the likes of which you've never seen though. There are sample libraries out there that cost $10k and more for Kontakt and PLAY instruments. Guitar gear is nothing compared to this stuff as far as cost. I've got just the basics as far as tones go (orchestral, perc, woods, some for sound design etc) and it cost me around $1500-$2k to get there over the last few months.

Let me know if it's something you wanna get into and I can point you at some good libraries.

Great info, thanks! Yeah i'm on Songtradr but haven't really submitted or added a whole lot. I can't seem to find ANYONE who has actually been selected or articles of people having success on there so I haven't really pushed it there. I hear of people short listed often but not chosen. Ever had your work chosen on there yet?

My dream would be to do this for a living. However, a niche portion of the industry. If I DID do it for a living then obviously I'd have to get more commercial with it.... but right now, just doing it for the love of it, i'd prefer to do unique soundscapes with the equipment i already have.... horror soundtrack with the twigs machine and folktek stuff... indie films with a unique take through modular.... field recordings for scenes... etc etc. I have the Kontakt full synth library but never use it. I'd love to have a sound that fills a niche for specific directors and needs. I've been planning on putting together scores to existing films and also utilizing other artist's videos and provide a score to it and am doing that soon just for myself but that's good to know that it's what you need to get your feet in. Thanks again for all the info!

Re: The Stuff No One Wants To Hear Thread

Love the clips!!! And sorry if I contributed in any way to your new rabbit hole! :lol:
The Native Instruments software is a real time sucker - four hours will go by in the blink of an eye.

This is my first clip that I posted on GAB, it uses a Damage loop and I tossed in a regular kick and snare from another program.
I was so proud of this clip that, I posted it a million times. I used the same guitar settings and fuzz on all tracks - a mistake I will not make again!
Somehow, I accidentally deleted the data file with all my tracking and I never got around re-recording.

It's been a while since I turned on my DAW :cry:

I hear you man....unfortunately running my own business doesn't leave a whole ton of time for this stuff, so I couldn't take on contracts even if I wanted to.

Yeah I've been shortlisted a bunch of times and licensed 4.....one for a soundtrack for something and 3 were for video games IIRC. One might have been for a show.....I'd have to go back and check. My buddy that I write with has had similar luck, but you're right...I don't know anyone else that's been chosen either, but my circle of musical friends that use it is pretty small....most of the composer guys have their own PROs and don't need ST. I don't need a separate PRO as I'm not as prolific with this stuff as they are, so ST suits me fine.

Seriously tho....sent you that PM thanking you for hipping me to this stuff and I meant it. This stuff is so much fun to mess with, just starting with a pad or melody and stacking tons of shit on top of it lol. Clip was bad ASS!

On you guys too....chuck whatever you don't think would work on the main forum in here. Only way we'll get better at this stuff is posting and listening to it. I'm down if you guys are.....this is all experimentation for me; I'm learning as I go on this shit lol.
