Flurp

By cTrix on January 10, 2016 5:33 pm

Feeling pretty uninspired at the moment.

Threw this messy half arsed deep house tune with way too much repitition and it's 4:30am and I can't be fucked fixing it anymore.  Or finishing it.  Moog is out of tune (for a change) drums need a ton of work, etc.

Up it goes!  Maybe I'm gonner quit after week one at this rate :-P

Wow, very nice track!

Downloading for my new best tunes of 2016! heart

TFW ctrix posts a "half arsed tune" and it bangs hard ._.
In all seriousness, please don't. I want more of this every week this year.

I second this. This is legitimately great.

January 11, 2016 10:31 pm

Yeah! Sweet synth groove. Hell of a start!

Insert bit wish's glow sticks

January 12, 2016 1:22 am

Dude, your half assed shit kills most of the dance/funky stuff posted.  Glad you're back.

January 12, 2016 2:56 am

sometimes the autopilot half assed plan F jumble turns out to be gold big_smile

January 12, 2016 2:59 am

Only thing that needs work is your confidence! This is dope as.

Also - the track I'm working on at the mo is called Vlurp, wtf? Have we been smoking the same stuff?

January 12, 2016 4:47 am

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Faved.

January 12, 2016 6:02 am

awwww yeeeee! big_smile

which moog you using?

January 12, 2016 7:43 am

Hell yes actually.

January 12, 2016 8:33 pm

Going through thousands of comments on this post...finally I'm here. Glad you still making every week challenge. And i do enjoy this work. So is it amiga tune? I guess if you use different program (probably) to create new tune that could save us from not hearing your tunes next week! Never give up haha

January 13, 2016 9:23 am

Ahhh thanks peeps.  The feedback / positive comments appreciated as I wasn't having the best of days (or weeks) when I made this!  Just felt like it could have been something more; the sequencing could have been much better, but I'll work on it / finish it when I have time.

Nope.  DAW (Reaper) with drum samples, Korg Triton and Moog Sub37.

Hey Seb; it was a borrowed a Sub37 but I didn't get time to play with it because work.  It's weird; it plays two notes at once... so not quite polyphonic... more like duophonic.  Wish I'd sampled & played more of it - but just ran out of time!  The out of tune is from manually stretching notes in Reaper and not being able to hear if it's in or out of tune (I probably need a better bass trap in the studio).  The new moogs are uncannily stable and keep tuning.  Although I'm back to only the Prophet now... so prepare for lots of tuning fail!!

  Must be!  Although I can't smoke a SID half as well as you can - seriously was blown away by your skills on that one.  Talking of which; lets hang come SqSounds!

lol - fair 'enough Bryan.  Don't get me wrong - I was into the bass groove; just the sequencing let the track down and it was too late to keep working on it.  Maybe I'll do some live groovebox jams and video them; at least it happens in realtime!!

Yeah yeah yeah. :-P  Do double neck guitars count as one or two guitars? :-P  But I'll get onto that at some point when I get more time.

Maybe I should start before Sunday this week eh?  Good luck everyone.  Looking forward to WK II

So flurpy!

January 14, 2016 9:00 am

Awesome!

Have you used a Mother-32? Thoughts?

January 16, 2016 3:26 pm

Very nice and with that bass the track title "flurp" makes perfect sense

January 17, 2016 2:19 pm

Nothing wrong a little flurpy derp. Even if it's not at full ctrix capacity - it's a fun track!

This basically sums up all of my commentary on this track.

January 18, 2016 12:00 am

Dig it! Those reverby plucks seal the deal. It's not as uninspired as you think.
