Cool.
No pressure.
Come back to me when you know what you want to do, maybe Lebeux and myself can lend a hand?

I think it will be harder to do in a month, but if we want to give this a shot I'm game

I would be willing to help whichever way you guys would like. I could come up with some ideas and PM both of you. However, as this was Lebeux's idea if he would like to set it up and organize it I don't mind, it's a great idea. I think it could be a popular project and fun to be part of the collective.

Lebeux= "the oaf". Everybody seems to read it as "le beau". I am in fact very handsome but I would never be so conceited as to call myself that. Um, wait...

I dunno, really. In my experience collaboration is a lot smoother if everyone uses the same DAW and projects can be opened and updated on the fly on whatever hosting server. I'd be tempted to make that a requirement but maybe that's a bit too restrictive. Then again, everyone interested so far is a Live user.

Should we start a new thread to discuss this?

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

^^^ Yeah a new thread would be good.

As far as different DAWS, if everyone had a dropbox we could load up a collective of wave sounds, synths, drums, sounds, etc, that everyone makes their tracks from.

There could be collabs between the collective but if there were sounds to work from that might make it more cohesive.

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

I'm down to have a largely collaborative situation going down. Makes me think of TeamSupreme's weekly beat cyphers in that everyone is starting with the same source material. Lots of similarities pan out.

But come November I've got so many drums and such cut up that I plan on taking to poundtown. I've got my field recordings/homegrown samples just about sorted out.

I'd be interested in giving this a go -- although I'm not sure exactly what it entails. Looks like that's still being determined, yeh?

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

So how about this:

Name: IDMF Collective
Time Frame: 3 months, starting November 1- February 1
First 2 weeks everyone submits samples to a dropbox
Perhaps vote someone to make sure samples are quality up to par, and that we have enough to choose from.
Week 3-8 everyone makes a track using samples, or if you would like to collab with another person.
week 9 everyone posts their finished track to a IDMF Soundcloud.
Maybe have another month where stems to each finished track can be remixed- stems can be made available on dropbox.

End of 3 months everyone votes on best 5-10 tracks, remixed and originals.

Someone could volunteer to master tracks, or they can just be as they are.

Make a Bandcamp page for the IDMF finished tracks.

Should I make a thread?

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

So on the NAWM tip, got a bunch of samples up in the MPC 1000 and I'm pretty hype about it. All the samples I've dug from field recordings or sampling from my Roland R8M or D-10. Had to play with them since I've made literally 6 drum programs filled to the brim (1 program = 64 pads/samples, except for them layers!) so I'm pretty sure I've started NAWM in October now. I'm still trying to hold up on really writing but some writing could really effect my sampling. I don't think I'm breaking any rules since I think the only rule is to be a productive person.

I have had an idea about writing some themes that I could kind of use throughout but I don't know how the nature of the music is going to dictate that.... Not so much ornate synth arrangements as much as raw, crazy drums.... weirdness. I did enjoy the new Haywire EP, he's getting down with some themes in there.

I'll do the bulk of my writing in November but I had to try my multi-timbral set up with the MPC 1000....essentially I can write/record/quantize in Ableton and have things translate 100% to the MPC as I'm working. It's glorious, the best of both worlds; thank you JJ.

Pretty much what I had in mind.

We need to think about the stems/samples that are submitted. Need to maybe have some guidelines and not sure if it's possible, but maybe have a drop box of folders ie drums, bass, leads, pads, synths, efx and so on. Also some rules in tagging samples. So for example everyone submitting a stem has their tag next to it for identifying whats what in terms of origin, maybe include tempo/bpm/key and so forth? Need to avoid a dropbox clusterfuck of samples I'm thinking.

As an idea maybe midi patterns could be dropped in if relevant.

Maybe a minimum and maximum number of files per person?

Great plan, get it moving before

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

I will (probably) be participating next month. Not sure yet how that will work out: my creative process is usually very closed because I do not like sharing unfinished sounds and unpolished concepts. Everything feels too intimate at that stage.
But yeah, I've been watching these QAWM's for a while now and it looks cool. So I'll give it a shot.

I've got this concept laying around that should get out there.

Re: November Album Writing Month (NAWM) 2014

So the 1st of November is next weekend and I hope we're all getting prepared. I have some more samples to prepare/process but I feel like I already have a lot - way more than the last QAWM I participated in.

Meanwhile I'm also using this as a springboard to an entirely different project. I've got a process now that I feel like is super productive and forces me to make creative decisions throughout the process. I should also end up with more or less everything recorded throughout the process. I'm working entirely on the MPC1000, but I'm driving it in multi-timbral mode with Ableton while writing, and using the SP-404 as a bed for audio tracks that would eat up my MPC memory on their own.

My last QAWM came in at ten minutes and I had eaten up all of the sequencer memory on my SP-404. This time I'm shooting for at least 25 minutes and also planning on making individual tracks and then also a live performance of all of the tracks - a group of tracks as individual works and then a continuous mix that I might record to tape. Run all of my tracks into my Mackie 1604 and direct-outs to Ableton so I can record a clean version but then send all the tracks to a foldback on the mixer and then run that mix to tape with my shitty 3630 taking care of some gain/compression.

So mixes in multiple formats, clean and digital and then to tape, and using my hardware exclusively. Also only making my own samples or jacking from field recordings. So I'm hype. Plan on having my samples pretty much done by the first and letting the writing commence. Hope to hit my mark by then end of November and then focus on the actual recording by December.

Bump.
Last night I decided November will include less gaming and more music making, might not be for NAWM as I'm also writing with a band, but I'll also try to finish my next solo Automageddon release.
