As you must be aware, two of our songs—Ishaq Hua Hai Mujhe and Bahaane—have been released worldwide with FL Studio as demo projects. This means all the individual elements of a song are available to the users of the software in a raw format. They can tweak them they please and come up with their own version of the track. This is the flexibility, the power that comes with a demo project. And with great power, comes great risk. Our these two tracks have been remade a lot. Some versions are good, some so bad that they are good (as in funny) and some outright cringeworthy. In this blogpost, we are ashamed to share one such cringeworthy version of Bahaane. Avinash had the misfortune of discovering this track a few days ago. Gary could hear him exclaiming from the other room. When he got to see the video, his jaw dropped. It’s not the heavily autotuned, wannabe singing that put us off; we’re used to them from the time Ishaq… was made available on FL Studio. It’s this song’s video that makes us go “Come on, dude!” Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the soft porn version of Bahaane:
Ragasur’s song Bahaane has been featured in the new version of FL Studio, the famous digital music production platform.
The audio workstation comes with a bunch of demo projects. These are songs made using stock FL Studio plugins and effects. Each project contains all the individual layers of instrumentation that goes into the track. Using these raw files for reference, a new user of the programme can learn trade secrets from the professionals. Beta 4 update of the new version, released on March 16, 2015, has added Bahaane as one of the demo projects. Image Line, the parent company of FL Studio, announced the news on its official website in a post listing new features of the update.
The team at Image Line receives scores of tracks to be considered for a demo release but selects only a handful to roll out with their updated version. According to the official website of FL Studio, every day demo projects are downloaded about 30,000 times across the world. This makes any artiste’s inclusion in the list a coveted distinction. Version 12 has added six demo tracks, giving the distinction to Agnivesh for the second time. For, version 11 of the software had also included his trance track Ishaq Hua Hai Mujhe in its “cool stuff” section. Reportedly, it was the first Hindi track to be released worldwide by FL Studio as a demo project.
Having all the individual layers of a song available to them enables users of the software to tweak it as they please and come up with their own version of the track. Ishaq Hua Hai Mujhe has dozens, if not hundreds, of remixes online, uploaded by FL users. Bahaane is also expected to inspire many remixes. Both the songs will be in the band’s set for their live performances.
