A new track and some Buzz things

17. May 2008 18:50 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Hi!

First off, for the Buzzers out there…

Buzz Updates:

The Hamst3r Index was updated with all of the latest machines last week. You can get it in the Buzz section.

There are also two new tutorial files in the Buzz section. One of them shows you how to achieve a distorted drum sound with various effects on them similar to the drums in The Great Destroyer by Nine Inch Nails. The other will show you how to achieve a bass sound similar to the bass in Satisfaction by Benni Benassi, complete with the reverb, pumping and filtering effects.


Now, about the new song…

Perhaps you’ve heard the THA track, Out There. It’s available in folder 5 of the THA Collection. It’s a track I did back in 2003 for the one and only Malaysian MC, Kerambit. A few days ago he sent me an mp3 of his new track and hey, it sounds kind of familiar! It’s the Out There track, but now with vocals. :)

So, here’s an MP3, an English translation of the lyrics and the video.:

Malaysian MC Kerambit – Gengster Baik

[Download MP3] [Read Lyrics]  

 

You can also stream it on THA Radio, per usual.

Check it out. Beats by The Hamster Alliance, Malaysian Rapping by Kerambit and additional vocals by DJ Feedo and To’ki.

Enjoy!

Breakcore.nl: No Time To Waste

5. May 2008 18:53 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I completely forgot to post this when it was released.

A 30 second version of Coxcomb was put together for the “No Time To Waste” breakcore compilation.

There are 73 tracks on the compilation, but all of the tracks are between 20 and 30 seconds in length.

If you’re in to erratic beats and mind-gutting noise, then make sure you check this out!

New Track: Soaring Eagles

30. April 2008 18:57 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I’ve completed the Soaring Eagles track.

This song has a new age flair with it’s relaxing tones, intermixed with harsher electronic tones and some effects that will probably catch you off guard.

This track features two models of Hang Drum, a Korg Prophecy for the drums, a piano, a Khim (a type of dulcimer), some manipulated moaning and a variety of other sounds.

Always striving to head in different directions with my music and never get stuck doing the same stuff over and over. :)

Hang Drum Test Update

29. April 2008 19:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

The track has a name now as it’s no longer a test. I think “Soaring Eagles” is a good name for it. Has a kind of new-age hippie sound to it. :P

I’ve added the first set of strings and some other elements to fill out the sound. I still have some dynamics work to do, like fading in the strings rather than having them just start off at full velocity.

A few of the sounds are still sticking out to me as too loud compared to the other sounds in some spots. So those will get fixed tomorrow night.

If I can manage to get it right, I plan on adding a solo violin.

Anyways, check it out, if you’re in to these incremental update things. :)

If not, ignore this and you’ll have the finished song in a day or two!

Hang Drum Test

28. April 2008 19:01 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Here’s what I’m doing with the Hang Drum and Khim:

Hamst3r – Hang Drum Test

The electronic drums are a Korg Prophecy ran though some distortion.

I plan on expanding this quite a bit. Adding a new melody with some nice strings. Probably somewhere in the middle. The track will definitely be longer, probably by 2 minutes.

I want to expand on the electronic beat too, make it do a few more tricks later on to sound busier towards the end without actually adding more layers.

It also needs some “sweeps”. Synths and sounds that whoosh in just before a new bar to give it more impact. I have a good idea of what kinds to use too.

Anyways, check it out. :)

By the way, do you guys like hearing unfinished stuff or would you rather just hear the finished tracks? Lemme know!
