Reflecting Face

By orangedrink on January 9, 2016 12:40 am

UPDATE:  I made a video for this!

Made with Ableton Live 8.  I was enjoying the track and then decided to chop up my own voice from a previous album and really had a lot of fun with that.

Things I learned:
- Learned how to use the OP-1 as a MIDI controller to play Live's virtual instruments and other functions
- Played + recorded chords with MIDI, instead of clicking piano roll blocks one by one
- Need to keep track of overall volume when using MIDI instruments, since I can't adjust volume per clip

Things to follow up on:
- Don't really know how to Send/Receive FX in Ableton
- Don't know how to adjust individual clip volume when using a MIDI instrument
- Take more time to study Reason's MClass Mastering tools

The vocal samples really add a lot to this track. Killer submission. Can't wait to see what you have coming up this year!

^ agreed the vocal cuts are really cool. reminds me a bit of OK Ikumi's use of vocals.

Really good use of sampling here. Curious about what you've got under your sleeve for coming weeks.

You got me inspired on chopped voices now, man!
