Tracking / the time signature tracking compo
« on: December 05, 2006, 04:19:01 »
Remember that 16 sample competition a while back?  I won that one... because I was the only one who entered, haha.  So yeah, compos are slow these days, it seems.  Extend the deadline and prod some more people is what I'd say.  I'd enter this one myself, but I know that tracking in an odd time signature would either be an outright disaster for me or it would fall back somehow into a more conventional time signature.  I just don't have the sense of rhythm you need for this kind of thing.  Sorry...

Oh yes, nice styling on the 'D'.  No one will ever doubt how much testosterone we have here at the Mod Archive ever again! :cheers:

Look what I made! / reviewing the W-Files?

@m0d: Ah yeah, right, I guess I should do that.

I think you mentionned somewhere that you were a fan of reggae and dub rythms, so that tempted me to give your music a listen.  I haven't reviewed in a long time, but maybe I'll write a full review for some of these sometime.  But for now, some general comments:

ambient5.xm -- I thought this one was a little slow to start, but once it got going, I could really feel it.  I'm very impressed by the fantastic mood you were able to create in this one.   I actually felt the chills when your bass came in after the drumroll.  Beautiful strings.  I like the way you stopped it abruplty, too.  Very nice work.

reggae1.xm -- I adore this one.  I like the fade-ins especially.  And of course, you can't go wrong with that drop rythm.  Fantastic!

reggae5.xm -- Let me tell you, it's refreshing to hear music like this.  It's so light and carefree.  The volume did some erratic things for me when it got to that guitar solo thingy, but I'm sure that's XMPlay going bonkers on me.  Otherwise, that guitar solo is pretty cool.   8-)

reggaeb.xm -- Wow, I hardly noticed when my player switched over from reggae5.xm to this one; almost seamless transition.  I really like the more 'minor' sound you've got in this one.  It's almost like it tells a story, you know.  The organ is a nice touch.  That's one fine muted trumpet sample you've got there, too.  I can see why you are proud of this one.

reggaea.xm -- While I think this is the weaker one of the tunes you've linked up here, that's not to say it's bad.  The lead didn't work quite as well for me, and sometimes I thought the bass and the lead were clashing a little.  Nonetheless, there were some bits I did like, like parts of your intro, your beats and riffs, and so forth.

cocktail.xm -- Wow.  I rarely hear this genre of music properly done in a mod, so I have to give you a high five on this one.  You have such a good feel for rythm, that I envy you for it.  I don't know what else to say; this is really great.

dixie1.xm -- Hehe, yeah, this one did put a smile on my face.  :)  The beginning is a little weak, I think, but it grows on you.  Nice work with the brass and the tuba bassline.  I especially like that wonderful little bit towards the end there.  Very nice.

dixie2.xm -- Again, I thought it started a little weak, somehow, but towards about 1/3 into the tune, the whole thing tightens up and it really is pretty catchy.  I really enjoy this stuff, so good on you for venturing into this style of music.  Your brass work is just wonderful.

So anyway, those are just hodge-podge comments.  Once I've got some free time maybe I'll review a couple of these.  I didn't say much about reggae1.xm, even though it's my favourite tune out of these, so maybe I'll try to come up with more for a formal review sometime.  I think I might have a few things to say about ambient5.xm as well.

I'm a big fan.  Keep it up.  :D

If I didn't know you better, I'd swear you need medical help.

Haha, farting censor noises... oh man, I nearly hurt myself laughing I tell you.

@DTM-Ace:  Ah yeah, the riverboat cruise down the Red River.  I actually haven't done that myself, yet.  The market you're talking about is The Forks Market;  it is really nice, yeah, and there's usually a bunch of people there, street performers, and so forth.  I go there every now and then, hehe.  I'd like to see that panoramic shot once you've got it.  :)

@Ceekayed:  Whoops, haha, right, I guess it would have made sense to give the crimson slice to the Crimson King.  I guess I didn't think about that when I randomly assorted them.  But just think, had you posted 7 more posts before I made that pie chart, you'd have the red, and I'd be bumped down to the navy bluish colour.  Let that be a lesson to you.

@m0d:  If anyone was able to out-post you from this thread alone, I would be so impressed I may have to worship another God.

@minomus:  Top 100??  Do you realize how much manual data entry I would have to do to make a top 100 pie chart?  Not to mention it would be pretty hard to read off the huge portion of 'others' split up into dozens of people who have less than five posts.  In fact, I think it would be the most spastastically ugly pie chart the world has ever seen.  I don't want to be known worldwide for creating the world's ugliest pie chart.  Quit your crazy talk, minomus.  :)

@DTM-Ace:  Oh?  And how did you like my humble little city?  :D

Tracking / vst effects problems for uploading

Ah, that's pretty clever, yeah.  Let me know how that turns out.  I might try to play with some of that myself.

Tracking / vst effects problems for uploading

I haven't uploaded anything in a good while to Mod Archive, since I use ModPlug Tracker as well, and I've gotten so nit-picky about my use of (excessive ;)) effects, filters and such, that it's gotten to the point that only ModPlug Tracker plays them correctly.  So I can see the situation you find yourself in.  (Though I don't use VSTs)  

What I'm probably going to do is use Mod Archive as an 'open source' repository for my music and direct people to my MP3 recordings of my tunes (which, I have also yet to upload somewhere).  Anyway, what I'm saying is you could do the same.  It's not the best solution, I know, but you did ask for 'alternate solutions,' so that's my input.
