Hanks Ableton song
This song was my first attempt at using ableton live and for this specific song I wanted to make a sound that could make my song a bit different from my classmates songs so I wanted to give it a special sound and with effects and singling out tracks and changing without warning, i think i made a very creative track. One of my favorite things to do while making music is to cut all the other beats and single out one, then I put everything in and i think it males my music very unique.
In this song I wanted to make over half of my beats with the pad tool and I made everything besides the piano tracks which i cut down because originally they were about thirty seconds long and i cut them down to make a better loop. Again you can see a cut in all the tracks and singling out the piano track and i think it gives this song a good energy and vibe to it with the trippy piano track with it being kind of shaking and then beats that build up the song then the piano has its single and everything just comes together.
Rushing back remix
In my rushing back remix I chose to have a slow buildup for almost the entire song using a beat track I made and a guitar loop i found which are the two constant beats throughout the song. I felt that to make a unique buildup for one part of the song I made a violin track going from cord to the next cord and then i go back to my drum and guitar tracks and i think it makes a good blend of violin and the drums.
As I created my song I wanted a kind of hyped up mood to it so I wanted a base loop that would go through the entire song so i chose a loud trumpet kind of anthem. For the song i wanted a lot of small sounds to add to the overall energy and flow but they don't take away from the trumpet loop that goes through the whole song. To mix my song, as I said before, I found a trumpet track with a hyped energy to base my entire song after and I had 2 tracks but my main trumpet track was the main focus of the song. Then I kept adding tracks to give the song more energy but I kept the main focus as the trumpets. Then I cut all tracks besides my trumpets and horns then brought everything back, and then cut things out to end the song. I also added echo effects to all the tracks and I think it made a nice sound to the song. I learned that a single effect can really bring together a song like the hall effect i added to all the tracks.
