This week we had a chance to share our final projects with the class! I opted to write another song after seeing all the things I could play with on Logic Pro. I wanted to write a chill, almost woodsy kind of song but some of the sounds I had were changed (some for the better, I’ll admit!) after adding the criteria.
Here’s the criteria and where it can be found in my song!
1. Have at least 8 tracks: I have used 8 throughout the song.
2. One of these tracks must be audio you’ve recorded yourself. You can use a mic from me, or use the mic on your computer. You can record voice, or any other acoustic source: The “one, two, three, four” is my voice recorded.
3. be at least 90 seconds long (repetition is your friend): My song is 1:37.
4. make use of panning: This can be heard in the beginning
5. feature an automated pan from left to right or right to left: From 0:04 0:11.
6. feature volume automation to create a swell of some sort (soft to loud; loud to soft): 0:43-1:01.
7. feature a filter sweep (I gave this link in an earlier email of an example of a logic tutorial): This can be heard in the second “4” at 1:05.
8. do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usxtfNxuMAE (only works on an audio track): I added this onto the second “4” at 1:05 as well.
9. bus all tracks to an aux with reverb to create a field of depth in your mix: present throughout!
10. at least one track must have distortion (any sub category is fine): On the main guitar the whole time.
11. at least one track must have modulation (any sub category is fine): On the celtic flute the whole time.
12. at least one track must have echo (a sub category of ‘delay’): On the organ the whole time it’s present.
