Today I went for a coffee and took my laptop - I worked on this final version of the flutter imagery for the song, and uploaded my song to soundcloud.
It's been great learning the ins and outs of ableton and being able to watch my skills develop - looking back on some of the stuff I made not even two months ago; it's kinda cool to see how far I've come.
I've also really enjoyed making music, and it's inspired me in my other creative outlets as well. In the future I'll definitely keep practising and learning new skills, focusing on different genres and styles until one day I might be able to call a style of music truly my own.
So this is my final version of the song - screen captured; Im happy with where it's at right now.
Theres a lot of work put into this, including multiple effects - every track has some eq on it, and many tracks utilise effects like reverb, phasing, delay and many more.
The last couple of days I've been working on the track piece by piece; Today I cleaned up a few messy parts and did some more eq, and I think the track is in a good place right now.
This is 'flutter': I'll also be providing a SoundCloud link in my next post with the song uploaded.
Had the most amazing night @beautyscoopuae A huge Thankyou to Vicki @perfectcanvasdxb & Gemma @not_so_perfect_dubai_diva It was lovely to catch-up with friends in the beauty business 💅🏻💇♀️💆🏼♀️ and to meet a great group of new girlfriends too.👩❤️👩 Got my glam on last night including a few individual lashes but here’s a different Before & After ! Wishing you a fab Thursday 💛💫✨😘 Removing all the makeup before bed it so important. Soak cotton pads with your favourite eye makeup remover. Let the glue soften and lashes will wipe away. These can be cleaned and used again 💫💫 Double Cleanse 1️⃣Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm. Makeup literally just slides off beautifully 2️⃣Malin+Goetz Grapefruit Face Wash leaves skin scrupulously clean without feeling stripped. ✅Andalou Pore Minimizer Toner followed by Boots No7 Protect & Prime Serum. ❇️ To really nourish my skin I love Pevonia Botanicals Ligne Sevactive 😊XLash Serum which works a treat Night 💤💙
Putting some more final touches on the track, testing some different effects and fixing the ending of the track. I added some delay and extra reverb to the closing reverse triangle to give it a bit of extra emphasis at the end.
Been looking for a decent sample for the track, tried a bunch of different voice clips but nothing really sounded better than the track did without it, so not sure if I'll even use a vocal sample at this point.
Only things left to do are look for that vocal sample, a bit more mixing and then uploading.
