Hi,

I'm a fan of all things electronic (among other styles of music/artists e.g post-rock, metal, Jeff Buckley) and have decided to start posting my own music on-line. I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination but trying to craft my own style nevertheless. Would welcome any feedback or suggestions on my first available download:

https://deathstarconvertible.bandcamp.com/

If you like enough, happy to send you a free download code! Please get in touch (e.g. Twitter: @DS_convertible), looking forward to seeking out new contacts, ideas etc on this site.

Many thanks Smile

Welcome!

Can you tell a bit more of yourself? Your set-up, your DAW, the kind of genre you like to produce?

Thanks for the reply Very Happy

My musical background is one of playing in local bands, until work/family took over. I enjoy songwriting and, although probably at fledgling level in terms of production skills (!), am trying to capture a mixture of things I like and turn it into something cohesive. Some kind of prog-postrock-electronica blend I guess!

Set up: just trying to manage with what I have at the moment... I mainly use the Nanostudio app, which I personally find really useable (although happy to be educated otherwise), along with an iRig pro, guitar and keyboard. It's likely a very basic set-up, I wish I could devote more time to it really. Do you have any opinions on alternatives (specially ones that are 'wallet-friendly'!)?

Would also welcome any suggestions regarding publicising music on-line?

Look forward to engaging with this forum, cheers!

Are these apps for mobile platforms? I have not heard of them.

About wallet-friendly, there are some free DAW's avalable. I dont know what OS you are using, but this one is very very low budget: http://ardour.org/download.html it works on linux and OSX.

Google for open-source daw and im sure you will find plenty of daw's.


But every DAW works different and there are a lot of DAW's out there. It really depends on your budget what you could get, really.

Appreciate the reply, thanks. Yes, Nanostudio is an app for mobile devices e.g. iPad. Not compared with other software, but I'm a big fan.

If you are interested, I've uploaded some more tracks - available for free! Welcome any feedback Smile Cheers
