Super excited! I was able to recover two NS1 songs that were trapped on my iOS 11 upgraded iphone by using iExplorer to rip the files out of an itunes backup.

Nothing earth shattering, but thought I'd share them

Glad to hear you were able to extract old projects from the death grip of iOS 11!
Thanks for sharing the tracks. I especially liked Ember. It was an enjoyable soundscape for this morning.

Nice - my fav is Hull. The way the melody and bass lines play with each other is nice. Maybe you could pick up the project and develop it more :)

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Now that I have the project again I might consider that. I'll add it to my long list of partially completed songs! haha.

I think one of the most difficult parts to song writing is taking those small "napkin sketches" or experiments and turning them into a full song. I actually feel like it has become more difficult as I learn more because I second guess myself more. What I tell myself to keep the motivation is to just make music that I enjoy and don't try to fit it into a formula... but.... don't be afraid to analyze and learn from the formulas and other songs out there.

Come to think of it, is there a good forum or group where anyone can share work-in-progress songs and get good feedback or critiques?

@Axphin: the best insight I heard about writing was that real writing begins with re-writing process. I think it is the same with music. What I like to do is just freely create whatever sounds good to me, then listen to a mixdown until I am over the initial enthsiasm of making the track and can actually hear things that I don’t like so much. Then the ‘re-writing’ stage begins. This is the hard work and you someimes have to be brutally honest. I think in the unlikely case that I become really famous musician and have to perform certain songs in concert for the rest of my life, like some aging rock bands, what level do I have to take a song so that I won’t hate it 20-30 year from now. That is a hard level to achieve, but I use it as a guidline.

I did this 2 days ago in my old iPhone 5.
A remix of De La Soul's Stakes is high.
Very jazzy.
