    Default So 4 of my tracks just got signed: a thank you to all who helped

    This is a thank you thread for everyone here who helped me out. About four months ago i posted the typical n00b thread "how do i do this properly" (although in my defence there wasn't 10 of the same thread on the first page like there is recently it seems...but i digress) I had a lot of questions ranging from the use of loops, to the mixing and mastering process. All the responses were very helpful, especially from guys like Tarekith. Now I'm happy to report I will be releasing my first EP on OLD SQL Recordings in about 3-4 months time!

    So again, a sincere thank you for all the help, much appreciated.

    Thanks guys

    Well, "4 months" is a bit deceiving. Yes i first picked up Ableton to try and produce 4 months ago, but i've been writing music since i was 6, i've played in rock bands from high school to university. 4 years ago i figured "what the hell, lets open this Garage Band thing that came with my mac" wrote a bunch of disjointed house songs then that had good ideas but the structure was way off. Then in Sept I figured I would pick up Ableton and seriously devote my time to learning how to use it properly. I couldnt even figure out how to make a sound with it at first lol so i took a couple of the good ideas i had 4 years ago and tried to turn them in to real tracks. Watched a ton of youtube clips, studied the structure of the songs i liked, picked the brains of guys here, and a lot of trial and error, that got the ball rolling for the new stuff. Sent them out to a bunch of labels, 99% of them didnt even listen to the tracks, but one did thankfully

    So i figured i had all the basic tools i needed from like 22 years of music experience to finally pull it off. But yeah, if you do the work it doesnt take long to come up with some decent sounding tunes with the DAW's these days.

    Sure!

    Two years back indeed. Well funny that you're bringing this up, it seems that my buddy wants to pick up the mix where you left off, and make it an hours worth of great techno!

    After that, we could try to make it into a series?
