Hello, Poly!

By miraclemiles on May 29, 2016 10:01 pm

Yay, finished something this week! Lots of happy accidents. Didn't have much of a clue what to do this week. I wanted to try out the Polyrhythmus Ableton device. Added that to a track of an African Drum preset drum rack that's decent, played around a bit until liked the beat, which is in the first section of this song. It's a neat device. To create the crazier, busier version of the beat I used for fills, I took two instances of it and triggered them on different beats, and ... magic!

Continued playing around with sounds and instruments. Like many of my recent tracks this uses some Ableton packs created by Afro DJ Mac: Pocket Operator sounds, a Dave Smith Pro 2 sampled instrument, Moog phatty samples that sounds like talking ... and maybe more I'm not thinking of. Tapped out parts on the Push for a while and somewhere in there was the second section melody, which I decided was fine, so there it is. Had a "Hello" sample sitting in folder, so grabbed it. Included some samples of my voice singing a beat I thought would be the basis for this weeks song too. Did some arranging and mixing here we go. Excited this is a holiday weekend, so one more day for me to make music!

Hello, Poly, well HELLO Poly!

Wow, I agree with CosmicCairns, the fills are ridiculously rad.  Enjoy the low-bit/ring mod vocal sounds.
