Madeline's Hair Trigger

By Catthew O. on March 13, 2016 11:59 pm

Madeline doesn't typically act like this.


Another close call! I worked all week on something specifically for this and today realized "oh, I can't make that sound right!" so here's YET ANOTHER battle piece. Incredibly anxious day, tried to get it all out here.
Had to record straight from the board again because I didn't have time to record the synths individually, so hopefully it sounds decent and the things that stick out volume-wise will be overlooked with the whole "AH CRAP 10 MINUTES LEFT, AGAIN" factor.

Blame it on daylight savings???


Roland XV5080 handled a couple of leads, bells, some vocal synths, and most of the drum sounds
Yamaha MU50 helped out with some saw brass and bells
I actually used some of Logic's native, multi-osc synths this week to satisfying results, which I don't typically experience when I give them a try.
Also, yeah, some SNES soundfont sounds (strings, choir, a french horn that doesn't sound like a french horn)
Bass was a sample I recorded in 2008 of a bass I sold two years ago. There's actually some obnoxious zero crossover on the sample and no way to modify the ADSR on the sampler it's in, but I wanted to make it work anyway.

Thank you so much!

I used a soundfont, so it's from the little, low quality sound files the SNES actually played back. Not as cool as it could be to that end tongue

The actual SNES gets a whole load more muddy than this on playback though... if only could get super clean bells sounding like that!! And clean super-saws.  :-o   Would be amazing!!

Great concept though and the track is super rad.

It was only the choir, strings, and a french horn sound that I used from SNES soundfonts.
Gah, if I could use the SNES itself I would totally just load half of my synth sounds out into it, haha
I've been waiting for the ability to do that for about 11 years tongue
