Rebirth RB-338 tracks from the nineties

Created an account on soundcloud for old rebirth tracks from the nineties. Some I like, some are crap, some are damaged beyond repair. I'll have to see what I upload. I was young and foolish, now I'm old and foolish :)

This one I still kinda like, it's called Dwellings.

I think it would be kewl to

I think it would be kewl to start posting some non Caustic tracks of our users doing stuff in other programs.

This might give others some inspiration in Caustic. I know I want to post up some of my music but it's all made on external sequencers and samplers. I just don't have the time to make a full track in Caustic right now but, I would love to share some of my other music.

We can do this in off topic for now and if there is enough interest maybe Rej might stick another off topic forum for just this type of stuff.

I didn't really know where to

I didn't really know where to post this. Just an announcement really. Didn't mean to post these tracks regularly on the forum. Those who want can always find them on soundcloud.

But off topic for tracks made now is a good idea.

Hi johandelpire;

Hi johandelpire;

Really enjoyed this track!
It has aged well and still sounds fresh.
Great energy!
What format had you saved them in?
CD? Cassette? The fidelity is quite good.

Burned as audio cds (about three of them), some tracks are messed up, one I'd like to try and clean up, an attempt at rebirth ambient. Maybe it can be done in audacity, not sure how to do it tho.

I have still older tracks from the early nineties on cassette, made with a roland soundmodule. Think those will sound pretty messed up...

Yeah,

Yeah,

Actually I was doing something last night from my external sequencers. I was working with my son and couldn't quite get the levels right. I had soundcloud ready to upload as well. :) Actually, once I get my "sequencers to mixer to laptop" levels and workflow working right, I will probably be posting quite a bit on soundcloud.

I had kids in 1998, had to put my music down, now they are 13 and 14, I have a lot of creative juice that needs to come out. :)

Yup, hehe and I am also and Aries. ;-) I figured naming myself TeotiGraphix, LLC on soundcloud was a bit stupid.

I'm already looking intot eh Soundcloud API, I figure I'm going to make an app that ties Caustic users together in a original way, upload download music. I'm definitely going to tightly integrate Soundcloud in the CausticLive app.

Johan, cool stuff there, yeah

Johan, cool stuff there, yeah i been.thinking on how to be able easily get rid of some of those anomolies you emailed me about earlier, do you still hear them when listening straight from the cd?

Mike, do you run your mixed signal thru a master comp or limiter before sending to your laptop? Have you considered running final signal thru a tube preamp? Such as a dual channel ART? Swap the cheap chinese 12au7s for Russian Jj 12ax7's and your track will glow like gold and may smooth your level issues out.
In my yearz of doing synth recording and stuff I have been frustrated by levels inconsistencies from sounds from synths, drumboxes and other modules.... which Caustic shines bright because of the level of control we have now makes it easier to get pro-sounding content from a pocket device...... good luck, and looking forward to hearing your tunes

I have a Tascam mixer I have

I have a Tascam mixer I have all my external equipment plugged into. So my master is this which runs a line out to the laptop recorder. Nothing fancy, just getting the levels right between boxes.

The funny thing is it took me awhile to realize there was a freking mic gain applied to the recording (on the laptop) which messed my original levels up. Once I turned that off things started to look like I imagined they should. As far as a master compressor, no but I will apply that in my master in Adobe Audition. These first tracks I put up are not finals and just want people to "hear my sound".

All the tracks I will post are of me live mixing on my boxes and samplers. With pre programmed patterns programed by me using my key board or step sequencing.

Actually my Electribe EMX1

Actually my Electribe EMX1 has JJ Gold tubes in it, I have an audio through, I might try experimenting trying to get the main effects loop through it and back to the mixer for the final mix out.

Mike, that is one killer box you've got.
I love those things!

I briefly had a DR-202 (it's fate was to be run over by a car) but coveted a EMX1.

Yeah, for a lead guitarist

Yeah, for a lead guitarist like me, it rocks. I really don't care about what all the freaks out there say that is low quality and crap, I have made some insane sounds on it and it just gets better.

I also use a http://www.vintagesynth.com/roland/mc505.php along side to get my pads and string, not to mention backing rhytm.

Fun jammin :)

Fun jammin :)

The track seems to be worse when playing the cd, disc isnt scratched, probably just deteriorating. Maybe I can find it on another cd I burned, must have one or two more copies somewhere, but I cant find them.
