Upbeat Yeet

By shindigs on February 9, 2020 11:52 pm

Tried to break out beyond the comfort zone of "chill beats" to create something more energetic. Eventually ran out of time.

1) Tried to record some guitar to learn about the recording/arrangement process with these instruments.
2) Went back to make a more active drum beat with foley after feeling this could be better
3) Went back to guitar telling myself to do something a bit more unconventional for myself.
4) Arrangement/mixing wasn't working out, hadn't tracked bass or sequenced decent(?) drums so went back to an electronic composition.
5) Saturday Night: Grabbed various pre-sets, one midi-progression preset, and focused on arranging them something I generally liked about a day before.
6) It is Sunday, arrangement is decent, still need to add some effects, and mix a bit better.  Took a nap, woke up and it's almost time to submit so I'm here.
