I'm not suggesting that you listen to the whole 12 minutes ;)

You can try to post your work in the music cafe sub forum. You will get more feedback hopefully :)

Yeah I put some the other day. I was recommended to only put not more than 4 songs at a time, and not too often.

Thanks.

Really? Is there such restrictions? Well, I haven't used it yet! But I did participated two times in OSC, which was good experience and great feedback there. Also there are great talents there. But I don't like to be restricted a lot especially when it comes to drums.
BTW, you can buy Bitwig in the sell & buy forum for about $200. I actually bought version 1 at much less then upgraded later :)

I also have Reaper (5.99) but I use it as a test DAW because I don't like midi editing in it.

You can also buy Cubase Elements. It's really great if you don't mind tracks number restriction and missing side chains and some midi tools.

No it isn't a restriction, but I asked about this playlist (33 songs) and a person who replied suggested that if I want feedback that I only do it 3 or 4 songs per time.

Thanks for the tip about sell & buy forum, though I don't think i'll be buying it for next 6 months.

I'll check out Cubase Elements.

To antic604:

I wondered if you'd enjoy this song. It isn't psy-trance but it is quite trippy.

I put it 5 month ago, but nobody listened to it. I'm quite prolific BTW.
It's a bit too happy to be psychedelic / trippy, for my taste at least. Also it's basically a single 2 bar loop with elements going in & out over 12 minutes and some minimal modulation or automation. I'll listen to the others, too.

EDIT: Some of them are really good! Well done :)

I am always interested...

Thanks for clarifying.
No problem.

Your questions all had been in the ballpark of a newbee - my bad, I apologize...
I accept.

If you want to learn sound design I think Bitwig would be a perfect tool just for that. The Grid is the most intuitive modular synth I know of. You can make all kinds of experiments, look at resulting waveforms to really get a deeper understanding of any kind of synthesis.
The other playground to learn that is the free VCV rack. But Bitwig is the more clear way to get into that... You will find a lot of community patches which show how things could be done...
Thanks.

LMAO! I seriously think Spring Goose just wanted to chat...I would have guessed he wanted an arpeggiator at one point.

I treated myself to Obscorium.

"Obscurium animates you to explore new paths to creation of music & sound design. Like a modular system, it allows for most complex circuits, yet remains easily accessible.
It will change your process of making music, to a fun and playful state of flow and you’ll come up with patch after patch of cool melodic and chordal passages that intiate new tracks."

So far I've noticed its like (Reason) Matrix Pattern Sequencer, on steroids!

This isn't correct. I was wrong about this. It's ok for making an interesting loop but then you can't automate the loop - bah!
