VERTIGO

By dj someguy on August 21, 2016 4:18 pm

Cooked up a slower acid jam this afternoon. Didn't have time to finish the track, so it may be a bit long.
Made with Volca Bass, MFB 522, Sylenth and Ableton.

Have a nice week! Looking forward to hearing your weekly goodies!

Thanks man! The 522 was processed a bit, yes, especially on the snare (which is a combo of a few snares/claps), but not all too much, actually. .

Great track again!
First I was a bit skeptic cause you categorized it as acid. But you kept your nice meditative style.
At about 3/4 of the track there is this reverse sound which sounds a lot like a wispering voice that is awfully cool with the laughter and starting tablas.
Really nice,i listen to it the third time this morning.

cheers,
Gunnar

Aw, that's again so awfully friendly, Gunnar. Thanks for listening!
The voice is actually just a sound that is standard on Ableton, but obviously it's been processed a little bit. It says "Come on" or something, if I recall well.
I made the track during one long jam and then edited it a bit, but therefore I was a bit scared that it was too long (and maybe it is), but for some reason I like it too. And yeah, Acid ... I'm never going to make réal acid, I think, but that one sound was a bit acid-y, so hence the tag smile

Laid back acid goodness, made me lose track of time :-)

Great! Doesn't seem overly long to me.

I have no idea if this is possible, but you are getting better and better each week.  I say that because you already started off amazing.  The pause on the beat is the most insane thing.  Your rhythms are G O D L I K E.  Can you teach me how to be awesome?  What do I have to do???????????

Oh wow! That is such a sweet comment of you!! I cannot teach anything I'm afraid, cause I have very little knowledge! But thank you thank you thank you!! Also: your music is very awesome yourself, so you'd better give me a few pointers yourself! smile)

smile  mutual admiration fan club here!

How do you come up with your rhythm variations?  Usually I will create a loop, vary it one or two times, so then I have 3 "set loops" - Your work sounds like you are constantly varying and tweaking as the track continues.  How do you do it?  Using the drum machine in real life or Ableton and just having everything adjustable on the fly?

Nice!

It depends, really. I don't just have one way of working. In this case I created a beat on the MFB and then played around with it, recording everything I did. then I did the same thing with the acid line. I added a few rhythmic elements in Ableton afterwards and added a very miniaml bassline too.
I put everything together, as a sort of "jam", and then took out all the bits that sounded too messy, creating somewhat of a structure in the song.
Does that make sense?
