      My First Official Techno track

      Here it is. Did it in about an hour or so. It's called "Diamonds Forever".

      I know the mix is horrible, I haven't gotten any studio monitors yet.

      clean up that sound, or make it intentionally dirty
      the bass is weak, and I know you can do better than that. hit the 60~db up
      I don't know how much you can do with FL studios, but try and make it head in one clear direction. be real forward about where you want it to go.

      and for god's sake don't call it techno.

      good stuff. keep going.

      edit; just listened to the another track
      DAT SAMPLIN'
      jesus. is this the same track?

      what kind of headphones do you have

      You guys are interested in techno?

      There is a game called "iGlowDown" for iphone and ipod touch, the theme of the game is glowsticking, it just barely came out, it features techno music, I believe all the music in it is techno.

      The creator boasts that it is the first ever glowsticking game for iphone and touch, he may be right, never seen a glowsticking game like it.

      Check it out:

      dude I JUST said that i don't have monitors so i can't mix it down properly. And No I don't use Fl Studio. ANd I don't even have a track called "Dat samplin".

      I have a mixing engineer that I take my tracks too, but i haven't updated them on soundclick yet.

      Haha, I made it to #15 in the charts already.

      I think this track has a lot more potential than it's actually using. The song is mostly just a couple repeating sections, introducing no new layers on top of the sections, and it loses my interest pretty quickly. I've listened to various types of electronica, and I can tell that this is a quick track you worked on, but if you were to take it back and take a lot more creative liberties with it, you could have something really sweet on your hands. As it is now, it's not complete, I'm afraid.

      It's a start; good luck on future endeavours!

      introducing no new layers on top of the sections
      what does this mean? I'm new to techno so what is putting a layer on top of a "section"

      what exactly is a layer.

      I don't know how much you can do with FL studios
      uhh..wow, who said i was using booty loops studio

      Well, a layer of sound. This would be each instrument. Let's say you have a constant drum beat going - that's one layer. Let's say playing alongside that drumbeat is a cool little synthesizer melody. That's one more layer, played "on top" of another layer - the synth over the drums. That's what I meant. As for sections, I just meant that sometimes in the song you should have some of those layers (what the instruments are playing) disappear or take a break, then start playing again some other time in the song. This makes it more dynamic.

      Booty loops? That would be Fruity Loops, and I just assumed. What are you using if not that?

      I said booty loops to be funny, a play on words.

      I used to use fruity loops when i first started music like 5 years ago. I use reaper now, which is akin to Pro Tools HD. I also use vsts.

      But that techno track I posted, I used reason 4.0, which I no longer use.

      Ah, I see what you did there! XD

      Gotcha. I've never used those programs, though I've seen Reaper before. Good luck with future pieces if you decide to make more!
