confide (Helm, Serum, buncha drum samples)

By bryface on January 12, 2020 11:58 pm

not much time this week so here's some hardcore sentimental pop.   The bulk of time was spent learning the Helm VST and crafting the lead sound from scratch for the first melody (and spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out why certain frequencies were totally running away from me and clipping like mad). 


Most of the melodies were recorded live with a bit of tweaking/quantizing afterward - been wanting to improve my keyboard chops and i'm somehow still short of being able to jam out melodies confidently, so one of my goals this year is to close that gap as much as possible. 


Also thought i'd start getting acquainted with some of the drum samples i've had sitting around.  didn't have a lot of time for more complex instrumentation otherwise.

Pretty!  Very sweet chord progression.  Love the percussive arp too.

If this is the best you can do with melodies, then you're definitely going in the right direction. It can definitely feel a little jarring trying to make a melody that goes through the whole song, but it's really okay to repeat something.

Oooh those vibratos on those leads are a great touch. Also love the bubbly background melodies!
Funny, I just uninstalled Helm this past weekend. Couldn't wrap my head around the UI.

The arp gives me a very intense feeling of longing, and I love that it can trigger something so raw!

Short, but the melodies were really ace and the vibe was good. I liked it.
