Deals with God (Me and Cloudstyle)

My "Deals with God" remix thread has been pretty active at image line:

With new remixes of it posted like this one by Nyet:

Today Cloudstyle re did the song:

His version inspired me to make a new version of it:

Which is the version I am posting here:

Superlux HD681 headphones


My headphones broke.. I keep on breaking them.. Because I wear them a lot..

I have a very limited budget for musical equipment.. So I started looking at cheap
headphones.. And I found out that Thomann (German music store) sells Studio
headphones called superlux.. And they have been all the rave in music circles
for the past 5 years..

(not me)

These headphones cost 20 euros.. And sound like 70 buck headphones.

They are copy of AKG headphones from 1970es.. Very comfortable. Best
headphones I have ever had..

I love them..

Night melody


EDIT 26.02.2014 - I auto tuned the vocals and revised all instruments.

I have had panic attacks at night that have kept me from sleeping well...
Yesterday I slept 5 hours.. Today maybe hour.. Woke up to panic attacks..
Got to the computer and wrote this song.. It is recorded with laptop microphone..

Night melody
**********

accept
you must accept
what ever is
you can not resist

pain
it is just a thing
a burning flame
that will die too

nothing
will last
but change
for always

love
love the pain
love the change
play the part like you chose it

you will see
life goes on
no matter how
much you hurt now

in the now
things will grow
things will cease
stars will shine one

beautiful
beautiful
beautiful
like a newborn

child
snow
white
as you hear the bells ring

smile
one more time
for this world
that keeps us crying

die
never say die
we never die
we just change

pain
and sacrifice
they will grow
to be flowers

in the ruins
we will be
like the wind
that keeps blowing..

Fuck the streets


Kyle asked me to do a rap instrumental inspired by "Every day" by Chief Keef..

This is a version with my words and vocals.. 


Fuck the streets
****************

Nothing matters when you die
there is a man on the street
on fools ride
he has got his gun
he has got his pride
he is headed to
grave, suicide

that do not stop him smoking crack
cause everything is out of whack
his mind like a piston wheel
running hot like
burning steel

as bullets whiz all around
they bite the asphalt
assault the town
where normal people are trying to sleep
while madness rules

the streets

fucks the streets
fuck the beats
fuck this town
fuch the bitches
fuck the brothers
know that snitches
get the stiches

no one ever knows
how it feel when you are low

when you are fighting for survival
anything really goes

there is a madness on the streets
that bubbles from rivers deep
from the rivers that give you shivers
from the forefathers that were sinners

and everybody is hustling as the
spinning wheels keep gustling
making money for the rich
the ones who call you bitch

on street

fucks the streets
fuck the beats
fuck this town
fuch the bitches
fuck the brothers
know that snitches
get the stiches

fuck these streets of life
that drive us insane
fuck these streets of death
that glorify pain

fuck these streets of greed
that make men kill
fuck these beating hearts
that can not get a break

No one ever knows
how it feels when you are low..

when you are fighting for survival
anything really goes

there is a madness on the streets
that bubbles from rivers deep
from the rivers that give you shivers
from the forefathers that were sinners

and everybody is hustling as the
spinning wheels keep gustling
making money for the rich
the ones who call you bitch
on the street

ATL, CHIGAGO (inteleaved with)

fucks the streets
fuck the beats
fuck this town
fuch the bitches
fuck the brothers
know that snitches
get the stiches

And there is a monster
in you
and there is a monster
in me..

On the street. .
ATL, CHIGAGO (inteleaved with)

fucks the streets
fuck the beats
fuck this town
fuch the bitches
fuck the brothers
know that snitches
get the stiches

rat tat tat I am going to get you jack
if if is the last thing I do

(repeat stuff)

  Born to Rock Born to Rule
************************

I was born from the metal of stars
I was summoned as the champion of Mars

now i walk these halls alone
just me and my oversized dong

Born to rock Born to Rule

Check out my axe

Ive got the mane of a lion
fist of God
Ive got babes in the moon
and distant stars

But sometimes it sucks
to be so cool
so beautiful and smart
damn do i rule?

Born to rock Born to Rule

Born to rock Born to Rule

Here we go
Once again
I rock
I rule

I am too rich blues



Inspired by the How to blues in FL topic @ image line forums:

 http://forum.image-line.com/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=121798

I am too rich blues
******************

Blues
Ive got the
I am too rich..

blues
What am I
supposed to do?

With all this cash I
carry around
Oh babe!

I could shovel in on the streetcorner
take it to the bank

I could build a big ship
just to see it sank

cause it feels good
to be an asshole

Blues
Ive got the
I am too rich blues

What am I
supposed to do

with all these bags
I filled with cash

Blues
Ive got the lamborghini blues

the damn thing wont start

Fire

I might just as well
set it ablaze
cause it ruined my day

You
i could do something stupid
like give money to you

and then you would go and buy some
food
and there would be more people
like you
and i would not like that

Blues

Incommunicado


(EDIT 7.02.2014 Got rid of vocals, added one piece of melody and split
the latin beats in stereo channels..)


Actually fixed the computer. It was overheating due to CPU fan being blocked by dust.
I also re apllied thermal paste on cpu.. It now renders projects without dying again..

Letting go of Ego



.. I was thinking this morning, I should participate on KVR one synth challenge which this time
around was.. ANY SYNTH of your choice. . Well. I was thinking I would participate using harmor.

Started fiddling with it.. Using a  lot of the excellent patches made for it by M@RV.. Then suddenly
I came up with lyrics on the top. Which meant I would not participate on one synth challenge..

Then I realized the lyrics were sad and brooding like all of the stuff that comes from my ego..

So I ditched the vocals and made it instrumental once more. But since I added SFZ strings on it.. It no longer is one synth song.. And furthermore I think it would not stand a chance in KVR challenge anyway.

So I just left it be like this.. I think it is nice "film scorish" thing..

The project is so heavy that it crashed my computer 3 times. I actually had to underclock
the computer by 500 mhz to make it render it. Harmor is REALLY HEAVY synth.. I have
never had that happen before..

It was interesting to see the CPU temp go up as the song was being rendered.. It would
TAKE FOREVER and the temp seemed to climb by 1c each time the temperature was
measured.. As soon as it hitted 75c it was bye bye and hard reboot..
