Welcome to My blog! Here you will find out about my learning journey at CDNIS 6D Dragons classroom! Pleased to meet you! 🙂
Explain the step by step process of this assignment…
The first step of this assignment was coming up with a proposal that would set my standards and goals that I would want to reach by the end of this unit. The steps to assess my product were “if the song going on the beat, the melody and beat sound well together, how many digital instruments I use and if everything is on time, and the song Is up to 2 minutes” The next step of this assignment was to create a simple beat that would be easy to adapt and add onto for the rest of the song. This beat that I created turned out simple and still unique to the song. The next step was to create an accompanying rhythm and drums. The next step was to add any other sound that doesn’t fit into these previous categories. I added sounds like an electro riser. The last step to the creating of my final song was to add some plugins that would change my song to something more unique.
Assess your success against your assessable criteria from your proposal…
I think that I fully met and exceeded my proposal expectations. I managed to have my song over two minutes long, including 3 original sound loops that I used consistently throughout my song, including 9 apple loops that I integrated into my song and used appropriately and consistently. In the song, I managed to get creative and created my own beat drops and build-ups to said beat drops. I managed to get the beat and rhythm to flow well and the product turned out fun to listen to.
Evaluate your learning and new skills acquired
Throughout this unit, I learned a lot about music and a few new skills. I learned about the use of the keyboard and how I could use it to create my own beats and rhythms that would accompany the style of my EDM. Knowing how to use plugins also helped some of the sounds. I managed to finish this song within 3 days thanks to all the practice and previous experiences. During this unit, I really learned a lot about plugins and the keyboard tab – how to use them and when to use them. I also learned how to filter out different styles and genres of apple loops so that I can get all of the modernistic and EDM sounding loops.
What challenges did you face and overcome
The main challenge that I had faced in this unit was the creation of a beat drop. I thought that adding a beat-drop was really necessary so that my project sounded like a true EDM song. I had to experiment with different beats and sounds and the use of the keyboard window to create what you hear in the final product. Another challenge I faced was the over-use of plugins. Early in the production of this song, I had used plugins whenever I could. This resulted in a mix of noises – confusing and messy sounding sounds. Near the end of the production of this song, I decided to simplify it a bit and remove a lot of the plugins. This resulted in a much smoother and better sounding EDM track 🙂

What information are you using from this link? : Electronic dance music is not a new genre. In fact, it’s been around for more than three decades. In Europe and the Americas, mainly, there is an increasing number of electronic music festivals; events that gather people from all over the world and celebrate in unison. Naturally, EDM was unlikely to become this popular without generating incredible amounts of money. A report stated that EDM is a $6.2 billion global industry.

Project Genesis – Criteria Ci
1, Determine a nice and simple beat.
2, A nice rhythm
3, Any extra sounds and unique melodies and rhythms
I want to learn how to make a good song that I enjoy making efficiently and effortlessly so I can share my songs with friends and relatives. I hope to learn how different types/genres of beats and melodies mix well together and what don’t.
To assess my product I will be looking at; if the song going on the beat, the melody and beat sound well together, how many digital instruments I use and if everything is on time.
How did you become a more credible scientist?
I learned to organize my info in a simple manner and double-checking all of my control variables before starting each phase of the experiment. This made me a more credible scientist because doing this makes my data true and unaffected from outside variables that might have an impact on my experiment. I learned to control variables other than my independent and dependent variables. For example, in the Bungie jump barbie experiment, I kept the source data reliable by double-checking the angle I am dropping the barbie at, the height of the drop and the side of the drop. My data is also reliable because, for each part of the experiment, I conducted three trials, and in every trial three tests, during those tests, I made sure everything I did was the same as the previous tests to keep my data valid and consistent. Doing so makes my data safe and consistent. Another way to verify my data is by averaging out my experiments and setting up my trend line. All my data was reliable because the trend line was following my average values.
Here is my Pro Midi song
so lit hahaha
I think that the ecology unit sparked my interest the most because of the food chain and learning about the impact of removing one biotic or abiotic factor from the chain. From the heat transfer unit, I found it very interesting to learn about the different types of heat transfer and what it was. I found both of these units interesting because of my previous curiosity about it. Earlier I wasn’t given much chance to learn about these subjects, so I was glad to do get the opportunity to learn about them. I don’t have many other questions related to these topics.
