What do you mean? Like, our first singles we released? Or our first demos we played another person?

I'd say play by ear. Everyone's experience was different as some of us had never composed, others may have had years of experience composing, so maybe your first "project" was uber crud ;)

My first 'track' was a collaboration with my friend way back in 1993 using cubase on an Atari. We thought it was amazing, we recorded it on tons of tapes and sent them off to all the major dance record labels in the UK (and some abroad). We thought we'd just sit back, wait for the offers and then it will be all parties and chicks from there on in.
How naive we were, didn't hear a damn thing from anyone.
That was my welcome to the music industry :D
As for the track, from what I remember is was pretty much a 4/4 beat, high hats, claps and rubbish baseline and a generic 'rave' lead. It was pretty bad.
We discovered the freebie tempo delay vst that was floating around then and thought it was a great idea to put it on virtually everything lmao!

don't know for sure, but i believe my first track was made in FruityLoops 4 (i still have a legit copy of that layin' around here somewhere....), and i was having loads of fun with the included speechsynth... therefor, the track was titled "kids want sex with animals" (don't ask, but it sounded way funny spoken with the "old lady voice" of the speechsynth) ... :)

Shiiiit. I'm just listening to some old music I made in like 2003. I'm surprised as it's not as bad as I remember.

Here's one of my first. http://phead.mu/s/Wivw0aQf

Probably this one;




It was one of eight tracks/videos knocked up to support a student protest (at the closure of the Philosophy department of Middlesex University, London in 2012).

There had been other tracks 'done' prior, but this was the first completed wholly in Reason to be unleashed in a n unsuspecting world. Earlier shizz had been done using various other software.
Total numpty doin' his own thing for the craic and relaxation - it's cheaper than a therapist, and more satisfying.

The first ever? Oh lordy. That's probably made in Music for the PSX, recorded to tape, lost somewhere (gladly)! ;)

Cool idea... As far as Reason goes I just went back to my old files and found "Water Rhythm Sections.rns"  for this song as being from July 4 2002, which other than "default song" is the oldest Reason file I have.

Other than early live TV stuff, the oldest recording I have online or on a computer anywhere is this song from 1992: https://hughwilson.bandcamp.com/track/guiding-hand
The demos from before that are on cassette or DAT somewhere. And I don't have a working cassette or DAT player... :frown:

The first music I made that I shared with anyone was in college, in a class called Electronic Studio I.

This would have been around 1986.

Man I had an Amiga 500 back in the day, in Sydney. I had no idea you could make music with it, as per the whole Amiga 500 tracker revival going on now. I was using a Tascam 688 at home and 24 track tape in studios. I reflected on that recently, how I missed a whole movement. But then realised that's a post-internet viewpoint. Without the internet how was it possible to find people doing it outside my immediate circle? Everyone making music I knew, was doing so with tape, or using Cubase on an Atari. The internet really is an information revolution. Connecting otherwise completely disconnected people, into shared knowledge.
