Luke Warm House Jam

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

Nice! I use reaper for live audio usually - and then Renoise for all my tracker  / synth stuff. Very enjoyable!

That method of sequencing is just the same as musique concrete, basically. Totally normal. Love it, and your work generally. PS. you keep appearing in the brains of some people (staff) at the Australian Institute of Music - where I lecture. I think someone went to your squaresounds set or something.

Thanks!  The bass sample is pretty epic.  Ye old BassStation

I'd push the tempo up 10 bpm first though!

Yeah - I used to be a lot more tracker focused.  But I find this "organise the bricks" way of working is kinda fun too.  I miss not being able to put in per note automation though.

Hahahaha.  Ummmmm... perhaps ;-)  I didn't actually know you lectured there.  Might have to have a chat with ya at some point!  Everyone I've met from there is fabtastic though.

SOUNDS.FREAKING.AMAZING!!!

Excellent house track from an awesome producer. Love the swing. I think some sort of mini tech-house WB session would be necesary, and I'm pretty sure this will be perfect with SUNBATHER (donny jankowski and sammy jams project) last week's "Love ain't cheap"

March 25, 2016 4:36 am

Love the samples! Especially the vocal-ish ones. Solid as hell.

Really cool and fun to hear!

Always groovin' dude.  Mix is pretty decent really considering what you mixed on!  The hats just sound like the Q is cranked a bit.  Only stands out because you mentioned it really.  And I've still got my Bass Station KB   smile  Will have to fire it up again one day!
