i will remove my entry as i used other programs to add samples. i have the pc version of music 2000 and the cd sampler has never worked so ive been using audioticity and virtual dj to add outside samples.
my own fault i should have the rules first sorry for any inconvenience.
will remove right away.

Hi Guys,

I've added the latest tracks: http://timgulxmas2009.bandcamp.com

Keep up the good work!  ;D

My track is coming along... sorry for the delay, but I'll upload it to
bandcamp once it's done. It's probably going to be nearer the more
typical and "twee" Christmas end of things, but it's been fun using
a controller to write music again(!)

Regarding Spacekid's entry... no worries. Good of you to be 100%
honest.  ;)

I love the fact that mine has basically nothing to do with Xmas, unless you say like waiting to open presents or make up some bollocks like that LOLZ

the hihat...i guess it's a combo of cheap close, sizzly open and an open hat, like nine alpha or nine choral. as for the bass, i guess he used smooth.. the bass at 1.30 it's hard to recognize since there are various samples with a similar sound. maybe it's jubass5, but i'm not sure at all about that. the bell is fm bell. the key at 1.02 is soft key c4 at 22khz or c5 at 44khz. the clap should be dry clap. the kick is probably a 909kick. the pad is the one and only breath bell. the ending key is not easy to recognise, it might be vari hit 1.

LOL at "scared virgo"!  ;D

Cool beans...am looking forward to your newest work, "twee" or not lol.

Might I add... I really like the sequencing of the 5 tracks on the website. Played in order, it sounds like the start of a really bitchin' Christmas album! Lyricist...man...love the intro.

I don`t want to get involved in all the politics, I just want to comment on Rob`s, quite frankly, AMAZING track.

The intro is one of the best I`ve heard, then the beat kicks in at 1.27, just awsome.

Mate I`m amazed at the overall production of this track, the dreamy melodies, the beautiful string work, it just drips with absolute class.

What`s this at 3.46? Are we taking a turn to the darker side of Christmas? Fuckin awsome!

Rob this is without a doubt one of the best tracks I`ve ever heard on TIMGUL, you are definitely one of my favourite artists here without a shadow of a doubt, just truly amazing stuff.

Thanks, Bliss I appreciate your comments and feedback. Yeah with the darker sound I tried to incorporate a few different elements into this song. I even tried guitar, but I ran out of memory lol. That's a real compliment saying I am one of your favourite artist. I'll leave it at that as I'm a humble person.

By the way Spacekid, the sampling feature on M2K is very limited and using Audicity to implement your samples is fine by my book so I think your entry is completely valid.  ;)

What do you guys think?

Honestly I think incorporating voice samples is okay because yep MUSIC is rather limited, but I wouldn't allow other samples such as special effects, etc.

I agree. Nothing wrong with enhancing the sound. Also the feature is there but the memory is limited.
Rob I have your tune in my itunes folder without noticing! I will listen soon.

Great. I hope you enjoy it. I pushed MUSIC to the limit with it... Yet I feel there is greater work ahead.

Thanks for the comment Fear 2 Stop, (or Billy if that's alright to say!). I think me and Rob did have something in common when we went for the darker side of Xmas, with ours picture what you will, like me in a Elf suit giving everyone a lump of coal in their throat! Haha Rob's is quite stunning as is all the entries, this could be quite a close competition, if mine doesn't get it then at least I know I will have been beaten by a worthy track and that is more than enough for me

Having a little trouble with recording the vocals to my track.
Because of the way my desk is set up [link], I can't get my camera to make sure that 1) both me and the microhpone are in the camera shot whilst recording, and 2) my camera can pick up my voice fine. Well, 2)'s not a huge issue because I can use that for "backing vocals", but 1) is the main issue.
Bear in mind that the microphone cable's at full stretch where it is currently.. though I am working on that with the no budget I have (I've tried moving the camera from the pile-of-books-on-top-of-my-TV to balancing-on-a-juice-bottle-on-top-of-the-CD-stand-of-my-computer-desk - but I've been more "make-shift-camera-stand" than that in the past, I'll tell you that now. :D)

I think we need to clear something up... ;)

Some of the MUSIC/MTV products have a sampler, so it would be a bit weird to disallow external
samples, so long as they're sequenced within a MUSIC product that should be fine.

There are limits of course... If you create an ENTIRE song in PRO Tools, sample the whole thing into
MUSIC and then record it out of the PlayStation or your PC, then clearly that's taking the p*ss! :P

It would be good if people stated if they've used external samples just for everyone else's benefit.
It's good to know what we're managing to put together with/without outside samples.

Recording vocals into MUSIC to go along with your song sounds like a great idea.  ;D

Here is my contribution to the competition... (not in the comp, just a theme for it!)

http://www.icecubes.org.uk/mp3/Bellitzen.mp3

It's just a bit of fun written in MTVMG2 over the past few days when I've had time to grab the
controller and sit down undisturbed. It could do with some more TLC, but by then the competition
would be over, LOL!

Oh, and for the record this doesn't use any external sounds... but I'm sure any long in the tooth
users can tell that quite easily(!)

I've really enjoyed writing this song. There are some shortcomings with MTVMG2... things that we
just didn't get time to add in, but I am chuffed with what did actually make it into the product.

After a few hours I started to use it without thinking which button does which function too,
which was great. I also remembered some shortcuts like pressing SELECT on the track headers mutes
the track, and pressing the shoulder buttons in a menu attaches it to that shoulder button as a
shortcut.

Anyhow, enough waffling.  :P

Hope (some of) you enjoy the track... it's a bit twee and M.O.R. but I wanted to create something
very typically Christmas.  8)

ATB,
Tim.

Wow Tim, already this is sounding very seasonal, but with an electronic twist.

Wonderful use of the sleigh bells and organ, this track actually reminds me of some of Orbitals work in places...the bells that come in three quarters of the way through are awsome!

Brilliant work, this fits the festive period perfectly.
