Mutant Breaks #9

Attempt #1 didn’t really turn out the way I wanted. Not really bad, just really meh, and completely different style from what I wanted. But is almost a complete song.

Attempt #2: exactly what I wanted to do so far. But I’m stuck now and not sure where to take the track from here.

Being I was given a pack of Oblique strategies recently, thought i would draw a card for you. Not sure if this may help but the card reads:

Destroy

  • Nothing

  • The most important thing

Ps. I was considering sharing xrns, though my track has quite a few plugins and will most probably sound entirely different without them. The file size is also approx 400MB. Is it pointless to share with this in repsect?

You could render your plugins or plugin tracks, convert them to flac, and keep the original tracks muted. That’s what I plan to do - if I actually get something done that is… People who have the plugins can still use them. For file size make sure you remove all unused samples, including those in instruments!

PS. Wasn’t there once the possibility to show a random line from a file in the startup greeting box? Like putting all the Oblique Strategies in a file? Or was that a tool? IIRC, I had this for a while?!?

yeah thought about that. Would mean that a lot of the tracks are just rendered samples though. Went a bit heavy on the plugins, but the track benefited imo. I’ll give it a go and reassess afterword.

And the random line from a file sounds interesting, never heard about it though.

So am i gonna start this one off with some serious competition this year?

Why no sample pack, or did I get it wrong?

He probably has his hands full refurnishing the place.

I’ll post the xrns later.

@TheBellows please turn on download option so I can put the MP3 on my hard drive.

We can’t download the track from YouTube so you would have to duplicate somewhere else to be eligible for MBC? Use what you want though. Soundcoud was just a suggestion. Achenar was just pointing out that it fits nicely with existing MBC playlists:

@see:https://soundcloud.com/renoise

All the existing MBC playlists do not contain my previous entries (songs on soundcloud) because soundcloud has an upload limit which forces me to remove tracks there.

An alternative that allows you to keep your songs alive and kicking would be YouTube rather than soundcloud.

I agree with the -no download- but that can be solved by putting a download link in the YouTube video description.

I have no problems with “good music only” videos (of most disco classics) with nothing but a picture; you can also maybe find usable material for a video for bonus points?

My thought was to wait closer to deadline in case i want to do some changes to the track. No point in making you download it several times over. :wink:

Ok!

Ooh, all the more exciting then. I like the track as it is, and must admit, I’m a bit jealous of just how prolific you are as a producer. A new track from you pops up on my soundcloud feed more often than practically anyone else I’m following.

Release early, release often? Sounds like a good challenge

Thank you danoise, don’t think you should have much to be jealous about, but i very much appreciate your encouraging words. :slight_smile:

I think i have musical tourettes or something, i smoke some weed, get an idea and seven hours later i’m uploading some weird music on SC. :smiley:

Only rarely do i think about styles and genres, i just go with whatever that comes to mind.

I haven’t decided yet if i’m gonna do any changes, though i’d like to make a non VST version. I don’t think i can recreate the Cygnus sounds though, so i guess i would have to pre render some parts. I’m also not really satisfied with my effort to relate to the theme and the mutant factor is a bit low. I am fairly satisfied with the track like it is though, so i’m not shure…

Huh. Might have to jump in on this one.

Uploaded my track.

( edit: Updated with process files).

Process:

Screenshot images (Zip file): https://www.dropbox.com/s/eqnfwcxecwnxzwu/Screentshots_MutantBreaks9_Vaeprism.zip?dl=0

Automation example video (mp4 approx 10MB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/yba2ltf47v8shx7/Automation_Example_Percbeat.mp4?dl=0

XRNS (Approx 755MB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/edy6rxle1txi3k1/MutantBreaks9___V%5BXrns_Render%5D.xrns?dl=0

Had to render some tracks and did best to replace some plugins with native. Some plugin heavy tracks/samples bleeding into other patterns, were rendered as stems.

I have also taken screenshots of plugins for reference and added a small automation example as there was some in the track.

I advise using a limiter on the master to avoid clipping when viewing XRNS. I removed mine as it was external, though also provided plugin screenshots.

Some levels may alter slightly to the finished track, nevertheless should give some indication of my process as best as I could translate it. Cheers :slight_smile:

My submission:

Only one more entry in and i already feel the victory slippin. Think i need to beef up things a bit if i’m gonna have a chance in this brutal furnish feud. :smiley:

Genre? Who cares about genres - it’s mutant breaks!

going to make a start this weekend!

For the vote pack ~~I will run Xcleaner~~then compress the songs using OGG quality 3 and a script I have handy. This should reduce the size significantly.
