There was a ridiculous thunderstorm last night and I was jolted from my sleep by a huge explosion at around 3am. I woke up to find that the modem was fried! After a few customer service phone calls, a drive out to the store, an interaction with some very generous store employees who decided to give me a free exchange (despite the warranty not covering lightning), a drive back, and another customer service call to get the new modem online: HERE WE ARE.
I got a Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator PO-20 Arcade model last week! This entire track was written and improvised on the PO-20 alone, with some EQ and mastering on the computer. I also edited out a few parts to keep the composition snappy, and get rid of those moments where I was trying to figure out which button did what. The composition is about the impending thunderstorm and the super electric arpeggio exploding the modem! You can hear the high pitch note after the low pass filter fry the modem!
The PO-20 is a lot of fun and I am excited to improvise electronic music with hardware for the first time!
To do list:
- learn how to use the other mastering tools, like equalizer, stereo spatializer, and that other thing
- learn how to use sidechain compression
- redo end vocals for "What It Felt Like"
- redo some vocals for rap song
