Unfinished project.
Careful if you're using a headset.

I'll have to slip my comment (read: wall of text) in here. First of all, really nice! Instantly getting to my top projects -list. Not perfect though, that's why I'm commenting here.
First of all, I never realized trash guitars made such good rhythm guitars D: And here I was, forging different kinds of guitars (even have some nice results :p) without realizing.
Then I'll place the first complaint. You see that small grid up there with "click to enable" on it? enable it, and look at it. If it goes red, it's clipping/about to clip. An easy way to make a song sound as loud as possile without sounding horrible is using a limiter (fast lookahead limiter is what I prefer).
Second, using samples is fine... unless you're using a large scale of notes. I'm referring to the piano and organ here. Now, I'm aware that LMMS doesn't have good piano sounds, but the organ samples aren't that impressive: replacing it with an organ from ZynAddSubFX presets did no harm (I used "Caathedral organ 2"). As for the piano, a freepat piano made it sound a lot better... but it's sadly not included in LMMS default pack D:
The third is not really a complaint, but still something I wanted to say. The drumkit consists solely of the bassdrum and snare. Is that because of LMMS not having good cymbal sounds? Tell you what, look at the drumsynth-folder. Not nearly all of the sounds are impressive, but it has a lot of useful stuff in it which just has to be dug out. I made quick mockup-hats from drumsynth->misc_hats->live_sound_oh.ds and live_sound_hh.ds. Made hh hit regularly every 1/4 notes in Drumset1, and oh hit every 1/8 notes in Beat/Bassline 1.
My English failed a bit there, but hopefully you understood most of it D: What comes to crashes, chinese cymbals, splashes, and all that, if you want to stay inside the default LMMS-pack, you'll have to be creative with Crash1/2.oggs.
PS. An easy guitar setup is C*AmpVTS->C*CabinetII->C*plate2x2. It's not the most impressive one around, but see if it can do any good.Posted by: Jernemies on 2013-07-06 15:03:41
I love the way you make you're melodys! :DPosted by: TRoniX on 2013-07-06 17:49:16
i read the wall of text ;) ... i guess a better place for "complaints" is here:

regarding this song: i really like it! (the only small thing i would change is the piano... imo putting the attack-time at ENV/LVO (vol) to i.e. 0.1 ... it then sounds smoother. all in all: very good job!Posted by: boulder on 2013-07-07 08:39:14
woaw! Coolest rock song I think I've ever heard here!

Sorry for the late reply.
About the samples, it's just for future-planned variations. And there's not too many notes there I think. Copy-pasting is still fine for me.
Um yeah, I have problems choosing cymbals. I haven't tried those all..

Thanks a lot for all your tips and complaints, I really appreciate it.

The best cymbals noise I've heard is a preset called "crash" that has been reversed.Posted by: notkevin on 2014-06-13 16:39:54
