God, this one just about killed me.

Amazing, did you used a midi guitar?
Just a question, at the end, many beat/bassline are offset, why?Posted by: acemil on 2017-06-12 13:27:49
This is very impressive. I really like the variety of the song.
I only turned up the the drums a little bit ;)Posted by: mutex on 2017-06-12 19:55:14
@acemil Thanks. Nah, I arrange everything by hand. My midi setup has too much latency to be much use, and I can't play the guitar anyways. The offset patterns were an accident that happened while I was stitching together the different time signature parts. I figured it sounded OK, so I left it as it was (mostly because it's such a pain to select a lot of patterns in LMMS).

@mutex Thanks! I was trying to make a proper instrumental instead of the vocal-style stuff I've been doing, and somehow it turned into this. I actually turned the drums down a bit right before I submitted... I never know what to do with them, so it's always a crapshoot.

Also, the section from around measures 97-113 sounds better transposed up 2 semitones. Not worth resubmitting over, though.

Lets do some math here. You have 10 different percussive instruments in this track.
If you dragged them straight to the song editor they would take up 10 instrument tracks.
All the patterns you would draw in would be unique meaning that you only need 10 tracks to do infinite amount of changes to your beat. What you have done instead is using B&B editors that are not unique and right now your project has over 200 B&B editors.Posted by: Squatro on 2017-06-16 16:38:11
It's definitely awkward, but having to switch to a separate instance of the piano roll to edit each individual sample track is even worse. I used to do drums with SF2Player, which let me program them MIDI-style on the piano roll, with each key assigned to a different sample. That's just about ideal, but I don't have that option when I'm using built-in samples. Short of using external soundfonts or plugins, LMMS really doesn't have any great options for doing complex percussion.Posted by: supper66 on 2017-06-20 19:38:39
Compared to previous projects, I find that there is an improvement in the sound processing of bass and guitar.

The composition also, diabolically effective!Posted by: D.Ipsum on 2017-06-24 10:09:30
