Aloha Mars!

By Jesse_Miles on January 31, 2016 3:45 am

Started out as a soundtrack piece inspired by The Martian, halfway through became an 80s fuelled dance banger.

Smoothly done.  More of a groover than soundtrack for sure.

This sounds like a proper global anthem for Mars.

Really great atmosphere, would suit the impressive landscapes of Mars perfectly smile

When it evolves into a dance joint, I really love those 808 triplets and that vague "hawaiian" vibe.

Curious about your setup? Is it "all in the box"? I could swear I hear some Boss RE-20 on your guitar music

Thanks for all the love heart

My setup is basically just Ableton and Native Instruments stuff tbh. The guitar is just recorded using a line-in (sacrilege!) and then run through Guitar Rig 5 which is a pretty robust NI plugin for amp/cab simulation. Its quick and dirty but it works! In this track though i think there is no guitar haha but thats what I used on the others.

I listened to all your tracks in a row, so yes, I realize there's no guitar in here and I was referimg to all your stuff in general smile

I do use Guitar Rig too sometimes. I guess it was the green "tape delay" what I was hearing. I'm no guitarrist so I don't have any "religious" problems about recording through the line/mic input... It seems that we can't evolve and everything should be done miking fender amps. Your stuff sounds great like that IMHO
