@NLxAROSA - What MDI interface/s do you use? I ask because today I stumbled upon the Seaboard, and am totally blown away by it. Never even knew it existed until now. Wow!




I'm using a Roland A300 Pro MIDI keyboard. I also have a Roland MC-707 and a Roland TR-8s. All integrates seamlessly into Ableton as well in terms of both MIDI and audio (both the MC and TR have dedicated audio interfaces with individual tracks for every instrument/track, so that's 11 for the TR8s and 8 for the MC707 that I stream directly into ableton).

Oh, before I forget, I released a new EP yesterday. :D All sounds here are from the TR8s and MC707, no VSTs were harmed. Vocal snippets added later of course.



That Seaboard looks great! Too bad I suck at playing in realtime. :lol:

@VBR - I've played the Seaboards. They are cool but a bit weird to play. In my opinion the KMI K-Board Pro 4 is a much better MPE controller, and is significantly cheaper than the Seaboard 49 was sold for as well. Roli discontinued the Seaboard line, but they are apparently coming out with a revamped one so maybe that will be better.

Well I finally have something I can share. I made this a few days ago. I haven't ironed out all the kinks into making these things but I hope you guys like it.

Today, I upgraded to FL Studio Producer version. Some say this is the sweet spot as far as using FL Studio goes. Not many people will have the finances or need to upgrade to Signature or All Packs Bundle, but I may decide to upgrade to Signature if I feel Signature has a few features that are better than what Producer includes. I am already enjoying using sound samples in music and not feel so restricted like with Fruity Edition.

I have no real songs to share for this post that I worked on, but I surely will enjoy trying to see how I can best utilize FL Studio Producer version to make music. As kind of a funny story, one FLEX generator I was using gave me some Genesis/Megadrive vibes. I almost felt like I wanted to do a Genesis/Megadrive style song using it!

I was, though, working on a loopable song that I could consider for game developers. It is a boss theme I am working on.

Musescore 4 has been released. With new sounds and a new playback system that's a little more realistic. I made a short test of the brass section, I guess it counts as a cover.

On or around Christmas 2022, I upgraded to FL Studio Signature Edition! I am not considering the All Plugins version, since it is kind of plugin overkill. I do like the tiered payment system so you don't need to pay much more than you have to if you have a lower edition of FL Studio. I haven't come up with anything yet with the new version.

What I released recently was a song I worked on and decided to re-do it. What I ended up releasing, then, is a "draft" of a song I am going to re-do. However, I thought it was good enough for people to use for games or media projects. It is a looping song called "Force of Nature." This song was meant to be more like a boss theme. Again- this was a final song... until I decided to want to re-do and re-work it. If you're interested, here you go. Enjoy:

New year, new track!



This was one tough track to mix/master. What you hear is just one synth (arpeggiated/played across three octaves) with a lot of delay and compression. But since it then becomes one massive thing: good luck mixing that with a kick and a sub. Luckily there's a thing called dynamic EQ (sidechained in some cases) and that worked like a charm. 👍

I updated my original song, "Urban Dream" for 2023. I utilized more of FL Studio's Sytrus than FLEX. Too many FLEX channels could slow down real time playback. So I utilized a lot more of Sytrus. I also used Drumpad for snares. I also used some of Harmless. However, while Harmless is also less taxing on my PC, rendering songs can take long if you have multiple Harmless channels in your project. I felt good enough about my work that I decided to upload to my Soundcloud. So here you go... enjoy!




(UPDATE: I safely was able to delete and re-upload this song because one instrument sounded missing from the song. I edited it and is now basically complete for your enjoyment.)
