Youtube-Link "The way I am"
« on: September 14, 2008, 11:13:12 am »
Heyo,

I had put this on youtube some time ago and now I want to know what u think about it :D

The track was created throughout a statement of a former classmate, he was like "oh ps2 programme is shit, u can never create music like we hear in radio with it".
So dante and me tried to convince him from the opposite by trying to create the relatively modern rap track "The way I am" made by a well known artist called eminem. Our goal was to let it sound the similiar as possible to the original without using too many recorded samples. In the end the only recorded sample was the chimes  ;D

I know that the first bassline has the wrong timing and that the chorus is normally backed by the above mentioned chimes, but it was impossible to record or edit the first chimes so that they sound like the ones in the original chorus, that's why we used a sample of the game there.

Created with the MTVMG2, a "making-off" video can be found too^^ I wish happy re-creating  ;)

And we see us broken and we see us burn, cause life is not a token that you just put up.

It seems like life is only a love affair, we step for, we step back; around we turn;
And this play is yet chosen, it is love to no concern, cause life is not a token that you just put up."

nice song :), I hate when people judge a program before even trying to use it properly. I mean, if you check the Music 2000 help section on the forums I uploaded a video where I start making a trance song. Within the first 22 minutes I get the main melody, string pad, bass string pad, bass lines, percussions loops and a snare roll done and I'm not even using premade riffs. I even manage to play with note parameters/riff settings through the entire time

 ;D Hey thats quiet time ago. But I remember us sitting there and always tryin to make it sound perfect. That was pretty cool.
But in the end making own songs is much more fun. And always telling you "hmm... thats nice - thats crap".  ;)
I remember you having that strange melodys and tryin to find some fitting beat :D that was pretty funny.
And just hear him rapping, he got some nice lyrics (even the police once listened them in a very "special" case)

So hope to hear some beats again Symphony
till then - c ya

Dude. You couldn't tell if this was the real thing or not unless this video was being played. :)

Great job (even though hip-hop's not my thing)

That was awesome... I was waiting for Eminem to start rapping at any moment. Top notch  ;D
