LMMS has also 'mark scale' feature.


Using that already :)

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

While just placing notes to form chords of which I have no clue if they even exist, I made a happy discovery. I can probably just form chords from notes that sound nice together, by just listening how it sounds. ( Probably having the scale marked to make it a bit easier ) I started with a 4 notes ch...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

What about using in melody those extra notes you would put to chord, but not adding them to chord? Its worth a try :) But I do not know any chord from the top of my head. I just understand enough of chords, that I can use the scale and chord tools in LMMS. Most common chords are 'pick every second ...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

You totally lost me there, a second what ? :) In C minor the second is D. In G minor the second is A. In F the second is G. If you use four note chords like Cm7 it'll end up sounding more jazzy than Jarre. Could be good. A pattern Jarre is using is 1 2 3 5. In C minor that's C D Eb G. In G minor G ...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

I used Musescore to notate Oxygene 4: https://i.ibb.co/4VBt4B3/Oxygene4.png The first thing you notice is it's in 12/8 and the As are natural so it's C dorian. I used the key signature for C minor because that's the way I do it :D Some people would use Bb. Never mind about that. :D To get an idea w...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

https://soundcloud.com/user586365033/jarre-test3 Not sure how much it sounds like Jarre, but I am really starting to like what I have now. Might have to use a different chord with 4 notes instead of 3 notes, then I have more notes to choose from, for the melody. :) Right now kinda limited with only...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

Some progress has been made. It at least sounds much better now. For melody now using notes from the underlying chord. Also did a little tweaking on the chord progression. https://soundcloud.com/user586365033/jarre-test3 Not sure how much it sounds like Jarre, but I am really starting to like what I...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

Your track starts off like Oxygene 4 -- you got that bit. I was expecting the drums to come in differently. I already heard where I thought the beat was before they came in. The melody doesn't sound like something Jarre would do. If we take Oxygene 4 as an example the melody starts off with a C min...

Re: Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

Don't try to replicate something and make your own stuff! It's been a long time wish of mine, to make music like jarre. Like Jarre, I don't want to cover his tracks. That started years ago when I still had an Atari ST and midi connectors were round. :wink: Cubase for the Atari ST. Back then the pri...

Trying to make something Jean Michel Jarre could have made.

I would like to get some feedback / help. I Like some of my track, but the main melody does not sound like Jarre to me. :( It's not mend to be a cover, but something Jarre could have done. ( oxygene, equinox, magnetic fields ) I have no idea on were I went wrong though ? Or am I too harsh on myself?...

Re: Geekos DAW (libre music-making repository for openSUSE)

OMG, does this mean I will have LMMS with Carla on openSUSE ? :D I have had so many issues with both, because they weren't compiled right. No wine support to name one thing. :) I am currently working on a boogy woogy track. The start is already there. https://soundcloud.com/user586365033/boogiewoog...
