Finally, my demo for May 2014 is done! I’ve called it Nerd’s Anthem, because I use nerdy sounds from Reaper’s default synthesizer as well as some old Roland samples I have. Again I’ve categorised it under my own genre of ‘amatronic’.

This latest creation was done on Reaper -I decided to call it Amatronica due to it’s nerdish and amateurish sounds. Some were samples from an old electric Keyboard I picked up for $30, while others were from Reaper’s very basic default digital synth player. There was also a guitar riff I recorded then doubled the speed…
This is the first demo for October which was done on Garageband. I also have another demo for October 2013, but done on Reaper software. Reaper’s a bit more technical to use (I find) and not so geared to just loops and beats like Garageband. It’s inhouse synth is pretty primitive, but it’s for that reason I like to play around with it.
And here’s a gag…
The previous demo really should’ve been for August, but I delayed in finishing it… Anyway, here’s another demo that was started on an iPad and touched up on the Macbook in Garageband.
I’m currently working on a song called “Dancing in the Desert” but it’s going nowhere fast. I’ve got a couple f quirky melodies and reverby guitar sounds, but putting it together is a bit of a pickle, especially since I’m trying to fit lyrics into the melody. I often get to this stage and wish I wrote the lyrics first, but I’m not very good with lyrics and I’m usually motivated to play round with guitar riffs and Garageband’s synth sounds first.
Anyway, speaking of Garageband, since it will be ages before I get the said song finished, I decided to load an ‘amatronic’ instrumental piece on Soundcloud in the meantime. It was originally composed/made/written on my ipad’s Garageband app, and then touched up on my macbook.
I finally got my latest demo –Psalm 37 -uploaded yesterday on Soundcloud. There it is.
I’ve just put this up on Myspace, and I’ll put it up on Soundcloud soon…
