I call this “Hanging Out”
Hi I know I’ve been MIA but I am making lots of progress, promise. This is my first time using Ableton and it’s a lot harder to get use to than Logic was. The youtube videos helped, but not enough to make anything sound decent. Soooo I asked my friend for help and we played around with his MIDI keyboard. I wanted to go with an 80s vibes and have smooth transitions. Vocals will be added in on the final performance video by Tuesday!!
Sorry this is late, I’ve been really sick this week. I decided to try something more electronic this time and so far I really like it. I still need to work on mixing the transitions from section to section. The readings really helped with automation which I still need to work on in some spots. Outro needs some more work as well. Any suggestions on how/where to incorporate vocals? Thanks!
So this is pretty different from my original draft but I like it a lot better because I made it have some sort of structure with a short intro, verse, chorus (repeated twice), and outro. I used the readings, lessons, and youtube tutorials to help finalize everything. This is my first time ever (!!!) trying to sing so it was a journey but I definitely need to work on audio recording in the future. Songwriting was one of the hardest parts for me too, but I get married in July so that’s what this tune is about. This was both fun and frustrating but I’m excited to improve now that I’ve kinda got the hang of logic.
I can’t imagine not being

Back in Chicago’s where will be
Yo me voy a casar con ti
Y tu con mi (x4)
This is my pretty rough draft for the loop project. This is my first time using Logic x and I though the lesson was really insightful for a beginner like myself. I really enjoyed messing with the tempo and mixing a couple different genres. It was sunny out when I started the project and it reminded me of Jamaica and Mexico, so I’m planning on adding some Spanish vocals and shortening it up for the loop project.
