Though I would share this nice little tip I found on YouTube, as I was struggling making my electric guitar sound nice when strummed. It's still not perfect of course, but better than my completely clean sound:

Hey guys and girls of GMC,

I thought I would make a little thread dedicated to the album I'm working on. I'm aiming for it to be my official debut album.

Some years back I wrote some songs and released a demo album on YouTube. It was originally 5 individual songs, but I then stitched them together, included some new material, added vocals and it ended up being one long 49 minute song, which you can hear here:



And an even older demo:



I have since thought about re-writing it, taking it apart, abandoning it and a lot of other things, but then it came to me that it would probably be better to take it apart again, work with some of the original 5 songs, of which a couple have been scratched, and try and create an instrumental album with shorter songs instead, much as was my original plan back in 2016 or so.

Last night and today I finished writing the 8th song for the album. I have 30 minutes and 33 seconds of music now. I was gonna aim for 45 minutes, but looking at albums in similar genre (such as Cynic's Focus and Traced in Air) which are only about 35 minutes long, I realized that maybe that was a good length.

Furthermore I got a bit carried away and looked at production cost of getting vinyls made. It's expensive, but reading about it, it would seem that at 33 RPM you can "only" have 18 minutes on each side if you want the best sound quality. If you put more minutes in you risk decreasing the sound quality. This leads back to the 35 minutes I was mentioning before. But how cool would it be to have the album on vinyl? It seems though that most places you need to order at least 100 vinyl records produced. This can cost 1500+ US dollars or more, from what I have been reading. So maybe some day in the future. I also need to find an artist to do cover artwork, but that can be found on Fiverr for instance.

So, with that said here are the titles for the 8 tracks I have so far:

01. Take Off
02. ~88 Days
03. Deep Blue
04. Galileo's Discoveries
05. Trojans
06. New Horizons
07. Charged Particles
08. Trapped in Ice

I still need to write one or two more tracks before I start recording. We talked about the songwriting process in Gabriel's thread, where I also mentioned that I work in Guitar Pro 7.5 to write my songs. I jam on the guitar till I come up with something I like, write all the ideas, instruments and such in that program, then export the midi of the instruments I cannot play and use VST instruments in Reaper. This is the same way I made the above demo album and the same way I made the following track (it's called 87.969 in working title, but will probably be named "~88 days" later on):



As another little teaser here's a GP7.5 file (right click and save as, as the forum doesn't like the format yet) of Trapped in Ice. It will maybe allow you to understand how I work better:

I will try and update this thread with my progress of working on the album. If you have any questions just ask smile.gif

I've spoken about this band before. I used to talk to the guitar player, the one who plays the solo, about 10 years ago or so. I'm not 100% sold on this song, but it gets me rocking in my chair anyway for some reason. The video is only available on Facebook for now smile.gif

Thought I'd share. They deserve some love smile.gif

Here's one of their older songs:

It's transportable, very small, Muris used to use one, and I used to own one as well in the past. Uses 4 AAA batteries (or a power supply). Any guesses to what it might be before I reveal it? smile.gif

So not long ago a bass player I've been talking to moved close to where I live, and we've been talking about starting a band. He wants to play some progressive sludge metal and I'm up for that, so I tried writing something in that style. Let me know what you think. It still needs vocals though smile.gif

It's supposed to be in the style of Mastodon and those kind of bands.
