The Power Returns

By mechlo on February 21, 2016 10:04 pm

Received my Octatrack power supply with about 24 hours until deadline! Decided to take that limited time (portions of it helping the wife with installing a closet shelving set and prepping for a party) to write a new version of a 2014 Weekly Beats song with actual hardware as opposed to all VSTs.

Didn't turn out quite how I wanted but given limited time, maybe I should forgive myself. Original was Sun Spotted.

ahhh this has such a nice vibe to it. really love those sine-y chord synths. definitely keep refining this track, you've got a gem of a start here.

OCTATRACK POWERS ACTIVATE!

This is a great track, I agree with the previous comment.  Nothing to forgive, this is a fun track!  just keep rolling on, my man, that's how we do it, right????  smile

Nice track! Great groove and some really nice synth sounds. Nice job!

Ah, this has a in-between feel to it, like potential energy. Neat!

i'd say main issue is hihats are pretty loud compared to the rest of the track, but cool idea with a weird but catchy beat

lol, I just realized what the track title meant.  I love it smile

Good, just needs a bit more development/contrast.

With the limited time I was going for vibe rather than catchiness. Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks! That's what a few hours of panicked keyboard playing will get ya.

You know, I just listened to it outside of my studio and you're right. I'll fix the levels on the hardware. Thanks!

Yeah. Agreed. Spent too much of those few hours designing sound instead of writing the song. hmm
