Daniel Shea – Quicksand

I remember when we used more than just you and me

You told me that we would be more than just another day dream

Still I’m here waiting for you, all your friends call me blue because I won’t give up on you

Here I stand just another girl caught up in your quicksand but I won’t give up on you

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Your just a boy caught up in your mind just give me some time I know that you’ll find that it’s you’ll miss me

Gabe Logic Song Draft 3

The ending is ridiculous, I’m changing it.

Susan’s 3rd Draft

Here is my 3rd draft I decide that I am going to change the whole piece….the reason I change the whole thing is because I didn’t know what kind of lyrics I would want for my 1st and 2nd draft.

Joe Cheeks “What you mean” 2 chord Shuffle

For this draft I added automation and some glitches through automation. I am really experimenting with it so I am not sure if it will stay, but for now I like it.

I have worked on the mix, though listening to it now I hear things I want to change.

The reading really helped me with working with automation in Logic.

Gyeore Lee’s Logic Draft 3

This is my last draft before turning in final Logic project. For this draft, I focused on intro and outro. When I hear the last draft I made, the transition was not clear so I tried to have it clear. But it seems like it is still not clear. For next draft, I’m going to make it smooth flow and write the lyrics and put it together.

Dochterman chapter 11 helped me to understand how mixing works and well explained about work place conditions.

First steps for the craft to mixing are:

  1. Start off by cleaning up your audio
  2. Arrange and group your tracks
  3. Plan on reverb and delay sends and returns
  4. Label track clearly

Also, the conditions of working place should be:

  • Setting up at least three monitor systems in your studio.
    • Need a pair of near-field monitors, and there are plenty of good quality, inexpensive monitors.
    • A pair of headphones and a consumer stereo will be very useful for checking your mixes.
  • Making the studio comfortable.
  • If possible, set up your alternate monitors to work at the flip of a switch.
  • Organize the physical and virtual studio.

 

Mike Black {Logic Project Draft 3}

Forgot to post this yesterday, but enough with the excuses… I did not get to record my vocals like I had planned to, but it’s coming. My main focus this week was to get my mix/sound right. The stock instruments were real rich in sound that I wanted to dirty them up a bit. I also added some automation, panning, and a slight bpm change. Dochtermann Chapter 11 helped with tips on which sounds should be mixed first before others to create a good balance/vibe and set the tone. Mixing definitely takes a good amount of concentration, and the trick is to take frequent breaks (don’t wear your ears out). Mixing on studio headphones is cool, but if you have access to studio monitors, even better.

Lucas Colley Logic Draft 3

I know that I am known to continually completely change my projects but I promise it’s only because I begin to realize that I cannot achieve the sound I want or the type of melody given my very limited knowledge of the program. I think for this project I have finally found something I like as I sampled a JFK speech and am beginning to develop some spoken word vocals. I really like my beat and even the chord progression I’m using. The readings really helped as I added in some reverb to get a fatter sound on some chord bass sounds as well as adding a small delay section to some drums. I am now developing a melody and writing my lyrics hopefully it will be done before Wednesday.

John Rowley – Logic Draft 3

This time I worked a lot with the arpeggiator and other midi effects, which was a lot of fun. about halfway through working on this I lost a dope drum beat that I had made and it was too late to get it back, needless to say I was disappointed. I was very demoralized to make it again so I’ll bring it back for the final. I couldn’t think of what to record lyrically so I’m going to use break to figure that out. I’m def going to have to put a ton of work into the final.

Once again Logic Lesson 6 was crucial to draw in the sounds using the piano roll. The arpeggiator sounded completely different when I first recorded it. It took quite a bit of editing to get it to sound right. Logic Lesson 9 helped a lot with the arpeggiator as well (a lot of work went into using that thing). It was extremely loud and obnoxious at first and I had to fix the volume and the mix in general.

Terena Chao – Logic Project Draft 3

For this draft I focused on mixing the tracks a lot better. I added a lot of automation and several tempo changes. I also extended the song a bit longer. My goal is to work on my recording tracks over spring break and to ultimately write lyrics during that time as well.

Dochtermann Chapter 11 really helped me understand how mixing works and all the elements that are necessary to make a proper mix. I learned that first it is important to clean up your audio using volume automation and a trimming tool. Next it is important to arrange and group together certain tracks if you are planning on multiprocessing any of those tracks. Also planning on reverb and delay sends and returns allow the user to properly control when to implement the returns and sends. Finally its important to label your tracks clearly in order to keep an organized audio workspace.

Alex Lindeman – Logic Draft 3

Everything’s scrapped. Untitled Projekt 2.

The song’s structure is remarkably similar to my previous project (really only lacking verses) and that makes me feel a little dumb. Whatever.

Class that one time last week was immensely helpful on learning the synths. ES1s are where it’s at here. The guitar sounding thing is an ESX24 preset that I tweaked a little as well. Figuring out the very very complicated synth controls were basically the entire way any of this could happen. Also learning how to make manual tempo changes in lesson 3 (I think? don’t remember exactly where) was pretty sweet, now they happen at exactly the right spots. And the automation for some of the panning is dope.

Oh, and ARPEGGIATE EVERYTHING

edit: holy shit the guitar sounds off-key as fuck, that’s weird, it wasn’t when I bounced it
