@zeekat It looks like you have totally failed to procrastinate. Well done! How does it feel?

I actually really like singing. Along with other voices anyway. My results tend to fuck up my songs most of the time but I'm probably a bit too hard on myself.
Yeah, music does a feel a bit desolate without voices, and it must feel more "yours" when you're audible there. But all I do to remedy that is use radio samples and bits like this. Wouldn't ever risk using my own voice, no amounts of autotune would help here

I need to figure out how to load this breathy stretched sound into a sampler and made it playable by hand. Shame I'm a sampler-moron. Maybe I should set myself a deadline to learn how to set a sampler patch up.

I didn't! It was just a tiny proof of concept, there's still a chance to fail. If you're obsessive enough, six weeks is nothing!

At the very least seeing this thread reminds me — do not procrastinate. But it’s also good to see you’re not alone...

I have been playing guitar more and that is my number one goal. So, now to start documenting my backlog of ideas!

And he did some guitar for my track. He's full of lies!

However, Zeekat very nicely doing some guitar for me meant me doing guitar for me is now something I can procrastinate about even more.

Is that a positive result or are we just cancelling each other out?

EDIT: Im changing my deadline... By Sunday I will have Zeekat's rhythm guitar edited and sequenced. The video should be ready at the same time, even tho the track wont be finished.

Hey, that means the thread is working, right? Go us. That, and the covid world tour obliterated the sad remnant of social activities of mine, that's extra free time for instrument tracking.

Au contraire my good man, but alas playback of the wav file on box and dropbox went awry,
so fwiw below is the "economy class" soundclout file.

There's significant changes -

Lyrics and melody altered

Some harmony vocals added

Key modulations added

Synth lines added

Various other stuff

Still some oinks in the track here and there; any mix suggestions welcome.

Guitar editing done. Moving on to the percussion.

By this Sunday, the 27th, I want the percussion finished and some heavily distorted guitar interludes finished

Make it so!

Oh, wait, I have to do this myself!? I need an intern...

I have a two minute sketch project so far. Made my breathy instrument by the dumbest way probably, rendering 24 reversed, stretched notes and loading each one into a rs5k instance (didn't want to have length pentalty for pitchshifting, I bet there's less dumb and laborious way). Everything does sound like a 70s crime drama theme.

Things I learned to do in like 15 years of "music production" hobby, while aiming for something completely different:

1. bad 70s crime drama music
2. Weather forecast soundtracks
3. ?
