• I'm struggling to combine my different ideas in a song. Most work in isolation, but when I try to put two together it doesn't work. Making transitions on the 707 is also not a great experience, but I'm trying to not use anything outside of it to make sure I learn the machine to its limits. In this song, I even got to change the sound of the main piano.

    • Starting to use voices in my songs with the MC707. I'm also trying to rely more on the machine and accept its limitations. This song was performend and recorded directly. Here's the session:

    • I think that I'm getting better making transitions between sections and arranging my tracks. The MC707 is still my only instrument. I still don't know which genre I want to make, but I know that I like having my sketches at the end of my tracks as a surprise. I've started to upload these tracks to Youtube. I'm not that confident about the name of the channel, but I think that it works as a placeholder for now.

    • I get a feeling that I'm not very good at naming tracks. This one also exists as a Jam on Youtube.

    • I'm proud of this instrumental. I'm not sure if someone would sing on it, but I enjoy listening to it. I did everything on the MC707, and there was no editing, mixing, or anything on a computer, which is precisely how I want to approach this hobby.

      I started by creating a few progressions and melodies with the sounds you can hear in the instrumental. I then resampled those pieces without the drums and the bass and made a few more progressions and melodies. I repeated the cycle, and in the end, I had 4 sections that I felt went well together. Besides the internal sounds from MC707, I recorded an ambulance a couple of months ago.

    • I built most of the sections on the MC707 and recorded them into Reaper to arrange and mix. I wanted to move everything into Reaper because I struggle with transitions between sections, and working on it on the computer feels easier. I'm not sure whether these sections don't work well together, or I don't know how to make them work together. You can also see that my drums still suck. My next one is almost finished, and I'm pretty confident that I improved in both of these areas.

    • Trying something different.

    • In the summer of 2020 I've acquired an MC707 and since then I've been in love with making music again. I've learned so much, and there's so much more to learn. These are a few beats I made during the rest of the year. They were made with the MC707 and recorded into a DAW where I made some final touches.

    • I was really digging the piano loop from the previous entry, so I decided to put a little more work into it. This is what I came up with. The song has two parts, all instruments are VSTs that I played in the launchpad, the voices are recordings that I did in the past except one that's from Youtube. I didn't put a lot of effort into the drums because I got tired of it before I had time to get there.

    • I was playing around with the piano and trying to build a nice, and complicated, chord progression. The result is the piano you hear. Loved it. Threw a couple of synths on top of it. Even better! It gets a bit crazy by th end. It was a good session.

    • In this loop I'm mostly experimenting with kicks and bass. There are two bassses, one only enter after the drop, the idea was to make it sound like a growl. The whole porpose of this experiment was to try and make a drop.

    • In this experiment I made a Lo-Fi Piano Synthesizer. No audio samples in that piano. I think it sounds awesome.

    • Two little loops I've been playing around with. Both have a sample + some VST instruments on top. I feel that using a couple of samples make the song feel more organic and rough, I can never get that feeling when I only use VST instruments. I guess I have to level up my editing skills.

    • I put a lot of effort into this track, but I can't make myself finish it. I think it's a better investment of my time to make more tracks than making this one perfect. There's a main sample, some VSTs and drum sounds I collected from the web. The voice samples are from a TV Show my girlfriend happen to be watching at the time.

    • I've been playing around with the Pico-8.

      It's a fun console that's all about limitations. There are 8 instruments to play with, and each song can only have 4 tracks. After a couple of days the limitations become liberating.
