Hope you are all well. This track literally came from nowhere! I found a bunch of old samples from 6 years ago that were all unsorted so I picked a bunch of sounds from them and made this :-) Amoungst it are some samples from a Korg Triton and the original Novation Bass Station rack (which I sampled a few things from years ago)
Made on an old PC with 1GB RAM, a pair of logitech speakers and a stock install of Reaper (unregistered version even). No plugins were used at all. Took it into work to master it and honestly wish I'd brought the mix session along too! The hats are a bit sharp and weird, but it'll do for now. Experiments in House Music!
ps. Apparently I sequence music in a super headfuck way... (seems logical to me though).
Process: I record and sample the synth hits / notes I need then place them manually as little waveforms. I also bring other samples in if I need them. I manually pitch notes up and down until they sound about right rather than use piano roll or a tracker. This means they will be usually +/- 5% out of tune for each note but that's my sound. I never actually see a note in the traditional manner: it's a relative percentage or a semitone value of +/- 12 notes. I've uploaded my Reaper session (no plugins required) in case anyone wants to see how I compose in Reaper :-) http://we.tl/BSzeJCqoYI
