Working on our new volumes
It can be an exciting journey creating music, after 10 years it has still been as exciting as ever to learn new things or even picking up an instrument skill and learning to play properly.
I have been enjoying the process transitioning from messing around with a massive library of samples to working with midi to help maintain my interest and try and find my own path in fact it is quite enjoyable downloading a wide range of virtual instruments and adding processing fx to give them a different sound I spent many years working at this but it was mainly for applying fx to samples I was using.
The newer releases we are working on for our publisher overseas is finishing up a bunch of tracks that are still using the older method so I will be including a few of my midi tracks to help transition a few songs to a more unique sound.
Blogging about my musical creation process has never been a topic to really hit me so I felt that it might be of interest to someone that discovers my page to learn that we are evolving our music to something new.
Learning to play instruments is an excellent way for the transition I find it helps me build new musical ideas and better sounds to take my songs even further.
I have also switched from my old DAW to a new one to try and get into the habit of using midi over loops.
This has been an interesting process so not only learning a new DAW, but also to better enhance my skill set of creating midi tracks.
I am not the only one that has been busy learning midi, my brother Micheal, has also been busy and for quite a lot longer than myself using mostly midi progressions to compose his songs.
I think what kick started my motivation to do this was the lack of interest in producing music over the past few months.
We have about 5 compilations in the process and hoping to work on the final volumes for Electrofied and Electronic Fused, Though we have not stated anywhere we are completing them at a given number rounding them off to 20 volumes of each seems to make sense.
Mum has been so busy keeping the music production going over such a long time I took a break for over a year due to things changing in real life I had a lot of things to cope with that are slowly settling down.
All the best for now
