No singing

By leafo on January 31, 2016 11:58 pm

it's rendering as i type this description, will i make it in time...

edit: yes I made it in time.

I've been trying to sing on all my songs this year but I just didn't have enough time. Only had about 4 hours to do this one.

Went with my standard process except a few different things:
* didn't have time to record playing bass guitar so I used a soundfont. covered in effects it sounds close enough
* I learned about sus2 chords on guitar and replaced all my powerchords with them
* I recorded some parts at half speed, 1 octave down, and played them at 2x
* I decided not to use renoise's cabinet simulator, and instead just a convoler and distortion dsp on guitars

Fuzz = fun! I spent a large portion of my teenage years listening to music in this style, so this track feels like home to me :-)
