Work In Progress: Making my first EP


#141

It was really awesome… i may have listened to it 7-10 times more…liked that one. When i first heard i felt like the prosperity… that same feeling of listening again :blush:


#142

Wow, I’m glad you had that feeling. That’s a sign of good music (I hope).

You mean my track or the feeling of prosperity? :sweat_smile:


#143

That track… yes! And the sick too!


#144

Good to see you’re still working on this, excited for its release!


#145

I’ll post a new video soon, as I’m returning to this project next week. Stay tuned :slight_smile:

January 21 2018: Vlog(ish)
Welcome back everybody! Feels good to continue the project. Since this is the first update of the year, I figured I’d do a different type of video:


(Just now seeing that my face is a bit out of focus :see_no_evil:)

Additionally, you can follow me on Instagram now as well (@the_termin8r sorry I betrayed you :joy:).
Link is in the OP. I’ll be sharing both music related things and other stuff.


#147

LMAO. I made it back from the darkside, maybe some day you can too :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :joy: .

I’m looking forward to hearing the final version, this one sounds very intriguing to me.

On a side note, I expected you to have a thicker accent.


#148

Cool :sunglasses: that’s Mike style how you did the vlog… :heart_eyes: and the song is awesome and fat sound- smooth same time- you make such a progress Rick- very nice - another proof of your rythm and composition skills and talents :clap:t2:


#149

Anyway, I’m glad you liked it!

January 30 2018: Sessions
The recording process is nearing its end and frankly, it has taken me long enough! Check out some clips from this week:

The next step is mixing and mastering: setting all volume levels right, adding effects and getting a good sound overall. I don’t know how long this is going to take, but my goal is to have the EP sound as professional as possible.

I’ve also been thinking about final song names and the EP title. I’m trying to go back to the roots of these songs to find the connecting element, if that makes sense. And no, I’m not releasing any track called ‘Bananas’ :joy:.


#157

Is that a midi keyboard you were playing in the second half of the vid?


#158

Just…wooow! :heart_eyes: sooo nice to hear you play! :heart_eyes: :smile:

So no bananas track!?what a pity… :joy: :grin:


#159

Yes, it’s the same synthesizer / midi keyboard I posted an update about a few months back. I mainly use it to record sounds and not as midi keyboard.

Thank you :smile:
‘Bananas’ is the demo title and I’ll change that into a proper name. I’m definitely keeping this song, it’s one of the best!

Can I rent it overseas? We need one for our tesla coil. :joy:
