Combinator Trials

Combinator Trials

So I found out what a combinator was last week and figured I’d give it a shot. Definitely happy to be working with MIDI data at this point, but I think it’s time to set up the mic for some vocal overlays.

Enjoy if you’re listening!



So this was a first foray into sampling something that wasn’t a song already. Kind of different for me, because I knew the tone I wanted it to have but there was no real melody point of reference. Took a while to do and I’m not completely satisfied with it but growth and what not.

Enjoy if you’re listening =)

All About Timing…

If you follow me on Twitter, @Karmakatie8, you’ll already know, there were parts of this beat I felt were incomplete. Therefore, I was looking for a sound insert I could not identify the name or the instrument of.

Lets play a game and see if you can guess which part/parts of the beat that was. Use times to identify!

The title “All About Timing” is because this is the first piece I’ve worked on where I feel the timing of different instruments works well throughout the entirety of the beat.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!


So, this one is called Hones, because I did some things I’ve never done on a beat before and I just wanted to use it as an opportunity to learn some new techniques. Unfortunately, I had written a song the other day that I really want to make a beat for so the ending is going to have to be ironed out later.

I really want to learn how to combine the instrumental sounds, which are my favorite, with the electronic sounds which are upbeat.

Supad Beat? Yup, I want to create a Supad Beat.


So this is the song I wrote. I chose to not use the double down on the lyrics because I decided I didn’t need them, just the base. Maybe in the future I will.

Also, we just chopped up a drum sample from earlier in the semester. Would really like to get a band come in and do this song. Drummers would be awesome if anyone knows anybody.


Thanks for the inspiration everybody ;-)!

Tried something different with the endingĀ on this one. I have to go sit very still now, so my head doesn’t explode. Only 2 hours until I have to go mix down a school project with the studio group. Recorded some vocals on a Bluebird, so I’m pretty hyped about that. Think I’m going to double the entire track single out and then echo the chorus. But I shall see and then you shall see and then we all shall see. Merry Christmas, Everyone.
