  1. There are some gaps in the lines later on but I think it's blocked out. Tried to keep the structure more simple this time but let me know your thoughts if you have any. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RKZ5GpZabyuBoUtiLdGgW-89xsUt_cKU/view?usp=sharing
  2. The levels are a bit all over the place but it's taking shape https://drive.google.com/file/d/13UqIBYgoIc-GkRBNbTHHR7tRTeEXtbXC/view?usp=sharing
  3. Started picking up on My Home. I'm pretty happy with how this is sounding so far. I have the melody in the second section already. But I was playing around with leaving it out first time around. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WAeq9d8uTwa1wyKBUOz3H1CWGxMv1sTS/view?usp=sharing
  4. Ok, I think structurally the song is done. It will be A ton of work to eventually "finish" it. (The Drums are basically still just placeholder as is the bass for the first 2 minutes) But the basic foundation is there so I can move on to building the next song. I like the ending a lot. (As I always love coming up with those little weird outro sections) But if it seems too out of place let me know what you think. https://drive.google.com/file/d/18S0nCqho9NAicq5f0iB68_-Ecc6H_2h4/view?usp=sharing
  5. Yeah it's there mostly as a placeholder for now because I am intending to record all those lines with a real guitar (As the first section or so does use a real bass but my bass is so old and crappy that it just sounds bad so if you listen at 00:40 the real bass is actually switched out for a couple of DX7 patches so I could write the lines without having a guitar to record them with yet. Once I get the new bass in the mail i'm going to try and record all the lines for that (And keep the switch at 2 minutes to the heavier synth bass). I might also keep the DX7 patch and try to get the timing
  6. Almost done blocking it out. Something cool, I managed to work in the original 2612 bass patch (x2)and with some processing it sounds really cool as an arpeggiated bass line. I also bought a new short scale Bass that should be coming in the mail in a few weeks so i'll be able to get some actually good sounding bass recordings. So i'm looking forward to getting to play with that as I tried to write all the bass lines used here on the DX7 with a real bass in mind. I might create a layer of the two together maybe as well. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oeVtIW7p1JA0HqBrFIMf3gx1ZBX66MtS/view?
  7. Making some minor progress https://drive.google.com/file/d/16mGae3TrooGug20R8oxws-j0pjd1zd0Z/view?usp=sharing
  8. Blocking more of Silent Zone out. Have to say this wasn't a direction I expected, but I really like it none the less. It will be a lot more difficult to balance this one though. The mix isn't really there and there's a lot of placeholder stuff. (Like you'll notice I switched the real bass out for a synth one a few sections in. Just writing the parts. Also missing guitar rhythm lines) Plus I think i'll finally pick up a new bass. The first sections are recorded on a cheapo 200$ starter Ibanez that has a bunch of broken knobs and stuff i've had for 15+ years that sounds like shit and have neve
  9. First Silent Zone WIP. I had originally a slightly different idea for this, but this is just what came out of my brain today when I started working on it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13MuHYTttC9g8_UN6siRU-5TVBelj-pZp/view?usp=sharing
  10. The foundation is in place I think. The song is basically done as far as the foundation is concerned. Time to move on to another song. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1957JaRXvnb21sCb0-YTqePaiJgMTYwWu/view?usp=sharing
  11. Ok, I didn't like that last bit. After some work to make some tweaks and re-recording all the guitars I had a spark to work more of Cave in from PSI. I'm liking this much more now. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SIArpJ0-7Z7KZNRe1B00bqMfqDEbtoSb/view?usp=sharing
  12. Got more blocked out. I had an issue with Arturia's plugins that would cause a massive memory leak and eventually crash my DAW, so the 2 main lead synths are entirely place holder for the time being until Arturia releases a new verison of the plugin in question sometime soon.(After contacting them. It's been reproduced and marked to be fixed). I'm liking the structure so far although I had some apprehension about adding a power metal like variation into it (Which needs the increase in tempo). It seems like it's going to work so far but maybe i'll retool that part of the song. There are al
  13. Things have gotten better recently thankfully with some small setbacks, but some parts vary day to day. But I feel good enough to get back to as close to normal as I can get while being mindful. Ugh man, human body sucks. I'm trying to come up with some ways I can help streamline my process to get things done a bit quicker by writing notes and ideas down here and there. I'd like to get a lot more songs done. Although the new Interface I bought is basically unusable due to some weird latency/buffering issues that no matter what I do, I can't solve. Trying to get a return for a differe
  14. Started being able to block out Mystery again https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VZS8C3dnf9L46ycFCKCD6jgrgfobjV9s/view?usp=sharing
  15. No progress lately. I was taking a break to play a game and work on another hobby and started having some horrible health issues. I have felt like garbage the last few weeks, which sucks because I just spent a bunch of money on a new Audio Interface, a new MIDI Controller and other stuff. I hope to get more done sometime soon if my body will heal itself :/
