Anthony Seeha - M01 Soulful House (First Original Song)

Hey everybody! How are you guys doing? =)

School work has been getting the best of me lately. Since I had free time yesterday, I quickly put together this song. It's my first original song on Korg M01. I really think the bit from 1:15 and on could use some vocals. I'm at a loss for that, though. Check out the M01 piano solo at 2:47, too! :D

I'm working on a recreation of a Ridge Racer song called Naked Glow on M01 and a DS-10 Plus progressive house song thing. I'll finish those up whenever I can.

Thoughts on this song would be greatly appreciated. =)

This is really good! It's really funky, but sort of sentimental, kinda like the End Credits theme of a videogame. And you definitely chose some instruments that fit really well together, and that can be hard considering how many instruments there are on Korg M01.

One thing I noticed is at around 2:16 you put in one of those reverse-cymbal sound effects to build up to the clashing-cymbal that marks the next section. Unfortunately the rising number of voices cuts it off before it ends. All you have to do to fix that is delete a few notes, I'm thinking. Anyways, well done!

By the way, I look forward to your Ridge Racer cover, and the progressive house thing. And regarding your soundcloud description of this song, I make almost ALL my songs in one day, it's not necessarily a bad thing!

Seems like a mix of Andrew Gold and Earth Wind And Fire to me, on a housey beat. Structure wise I think it is very strong and catchy, but somehow I miss the a raw and personal character of your DS-10 music. Could use vocals yes, why not do it with a cool lead sound? Or sing on it.

Very well done.

I'm looking forward to that DS10 thing, obviously.

Thank you for the feedback. =)

I was really inspired by a producer named DJ Kawasaki. I really liked his music, so I just wanted to make something similar to it. I was just trying something new here. I could never do anything like this on DS-10. xD But thank you. =)

Yeah, I realized that. That's a great suggestion. I will leave it as it is, though. xD

Edit: And I'm not good at naming songs. The only reason I haven't uploaded the DS-10 Plus song yet is because I don't have a name for it. I don't even have a name for this song. I'll think of something... x_x

I'm bad at it too. Maybe you should crowdsource your song names! Get your friends to come up with names, then pick the best ones :)
