i was going to hold back from mentioning my preferences as to not deter anyone, but it’s probably better that i do. i’m a fan of a wide range of electronic, but specifically breakcore, abstract hip-hop, and anything melodically stimulating. i’m big on the music carrying a lot of emotion. that’s me, i wouldn’t mind some interesting differences!
if it’s tr-808
sounds good, though i’m more on the synthetic/quantized side rather than recording parts. i should have said that.
one big thing i didn’t mention would be fairly specific roles. such as:
member #1: drums/percussion [two-three channels] custom breaks and cleanly organized sound-sets
member #2: chords/movement [two-three channels] bass and a few custom instruments.
member #3: lead [one-two channels] a few custom leads
the sound scheme should be intentional, so rather than three separate artists working on an xrns, more identity is given to the entire project (“i recognize this track, this is thesamplenameproject!”) custom custom custom these are just ideas, if anyone likes this we’ll manufacture a method that supports our writing styles and personal interests.
when i say guitar i dont mean like recording a chord sequence or anything, i just find that as i know my guitar so well, its easy for me to make the noises i want in renoise by starting with a guitar sound, or sampling a few short clips of guitar and mashing them together, the results often arent actual playable guitar parts, they are just created through the medium of guitar ^.^
