Tracking / The 10 most common tracker mistakes

On the other hand, I think the reason why you experience that "staircase" feeling is because you are using 12 as speed. I use 6 which makes the volume set more smooth. But if it suits you, by all means use the method you prefer.

Haha, yeah, I know, it's definitely easier to spot that staircase effect on my low tempo, speed 12 frames per row stuff.  I don't know why I took a shine to 12 frames per row really... I guess it's because with six frames I would always be spacing out things in pairs anyway.  With 12 frames per row I can see more on the screen I suppose.  I can get 6 frame intervals using note delays and retriggers anyway.  Maybe it's silly, haha, I don't know.  It works for me.

Good tutorial, in any case.

#1 - Looping and using the same theme  <-- I still do that, and I don't care :D

#2 - TOO LOUD, TOO QUICK!! <-- haha that, I have never done.  Too soft, too slow?  That would be me.  :)

#3 - No depth, no panning, no nothing. <-- sometimes I'm still to lazy to add panning... usually I throw in some though.

#4 - Out of beat <-- doesn't happen at speed 12! Every row is on either a strong beat or on one of the weak beats!  hahahaha woooo I rule! ^^

#5 - Finishing the song abruptly <-- haha that's what happens when I run out of ideas :(  Also, you could add here: don't use a fadeout!  I know I do it often enough, but I really shouldn't.  It's a crappy and lazy way to end a song.

#6 - Forgetting to add contact info <-- too much vanity to do that :)

#7 - Spelling your mail-adress wrong <-- too much vanity to do that :)

#8 - Cutting a note by using another note when you should not <-- pretty sure I avoided that in even my first mods.  Not sure though.

#9 - Using relative values <-- discussed that already :)

#10 - Ripping <-- psh.
If you dont want to be a victim of ripper...your music should know more people..and in different and legal and good site's =)

Or make music that isn't good enough to intice rippers to steal it! :D

Most of that is good, but I definitely don't agree with your number 9...

Using absolute values is great, but making a volume slide kind of thing using absolute values can easily make the volume slide sound like a 'staircase' of volume levels, not so much a slide.  Sure, you need a good ear to hear this effect, but it's there.

What you can do is do some testing -- by which I mean you put a volume slide, let it do it's thing, and then later change the volume abruptly to the absolute value that you want it to be;  If you can hear the volume change - bad: fix the volume slide until it goes to the volume you want (ie you can't hear the volume change when you set the absolute value.)  Personally, that's what I do -- and it's definitely not lazy!  :mad:

This thread really has no purpose anymore.  I'm not even sure it ever had a purpose at all.  Anything goes now.  MOB RULE!

Hahahahaha "Pink Ninja Fairy"?  

Why I'm so angry I'd strike you down with my wicked ninja moves if I didn't have this strange desire to go dance around in bubbly pink pixie dust!

Haha oh God yes, so many remixes of those out there.  Aryx and Fur Elyse mixes are pretty common too.

Well... I might have something *close* to what you're looking for...

This is just a rough draft, as I haven't added panning effects to the strings, fixed up the piano and such yet, and the tracked version is a mess right now... I'll be up in the newdir as soon as I get around to fixing all of that.

But anyhow, this is just an ambient piece that features a minimalistic babyharp piano lead.  No accoustic guitar though...  It's kind of similar to xerxes' style of music, if you know of that artist.

Anyhow, try it on for size.  If it doesn't suit your needs, then that's fine.

If this is what you want, then I could always edit it for length, add rain effects, whatever.  Heck, even change the title if you like, as it's not officially 'released' or 'finished' yet.

EDIT: Hey, wait a minute -- Rocky Mountains?  Are you Canadian? :)
