head cold

By bebopchalk on January 10, 2016 10:52 pm

Just got my Ableton Push 2 in the mail this week and this is my first time making a track w/ Ableton. Before this I was sort of just recording live into Audacity so I'm pretty happy with how less of a headache it was to put this one together. Song's sort of simple, just a drum track, bass track, and synthy chord track. The drums and bass are both just Ableton sounds. The synth is a Roland JU-06 I recently picked up.

Song's called head cold because I made it while home from work w/ a nasty head cold. I was sort of going for a psychedelic vibe on the chords/bass and was planning on adding a funky lead synth solo in there but ran out of time. Maybe I'll revisit this at some point and add some polish.

Definitely hit in the chilled/psychedelic vein. Did you play this in real time with the push?

No not in real time. I did the drum parts first and recorded the chords against them. I chopped up the chord recording into 4 bar chunks and then arranged them for the final recording.

Nice stuff!  Looking forward to hearing what you do with Ableton and Push as you get more used to them!

Thanks! Hoping I can do more with my next track now that I've figured out some of the basics :-)
