Levi’s Live Final – Through The Deep

Alright! It’s finally finished. Like Cole, I have since added vocals, automation, and MIDI instruments since my draft. I hope you like it!

Live Draft

Here is the draft of my Live song, all it’s missing is vocals and some mixing unless anyone recommends an awesome addition to the song. The readings helped me transition from Logic to Live a little more smoothly, showing me how to use automation and understand session view.

Logic Final

My final draft of the Logic song. I’ve extended the two sections I had, changed up some of the melodies, threw on some short and sweet intro vocals, and added some more instruments as well as an outro. The readings helped me get comfortable using automations like volume edits and panning, keeping my tracks organized and labeled, adding effects like reverb, doubling parts, and changing EQ. Enjoy!

Logic Song Draft

Here’s what I have of my Logic song so far. I’m still not exactly sure where I’d like to take this but I’ll figure something out. I have a few other ideas that I’ve started separately, but I’ve made the most progress on this one. Maybe I’ll incorporate some of my other ideas. Anyways, as far as Logic lessons go, learning how to quantize and use the piano roll editor has been a huge help in keeping my parts clean and precise. I’ve also started digging into automation, compressors, and changing EQ levels. I haven’t been able to do much of that on this song yet, but at least I’m starting to get familiar with it.

Loop Project

This unfortunately isn’t finished, but this is what I have. I didn’t get around to vocals but figured I need to turn in something. There are two main sections, each featuring different sets of loops. The logic lessons helped me keep my tracks organized and (hopefully) mixed decently. I’ll include a screenshot when I’m on campus.

Loop Project Draft

This is what I have of my Loop Project so far. I haven’t quite decided what I want the next part to sound like, but I’ll figure it out. I started out with a series of guitar loops that I liked and found some drums and bass that went well with it. The course readings have helped me consider the importance of the structure of the song, as well as the importance of keeping all the tracking organized. I’ve also learned of how to most effectively position and use a microphone, which will be useful when the time comes to add vocals. Thanks for listening, I’m looking forward to your criticisms and ideas.
