Headlights in the Mist

By Abludo on August 7, 2016 11:57 pm

I started this at 2 pm today and finished it at 12:50 am, with hardly any breaks. It's been tough but I managed to make a drum and bass song that sounds sort of popular.The sounds that I used in this vary. I used a water sample at the beginning, a camera shutter sound in places, and a stone disc cutter from the construction of an extension on my house (for a layer of bass). I used drum samples I found online as well as a recording of me playing the drums (you'll be able to hear it). I've been messing around with bandpass filters. Piano from Ableton Live and all other synths are once again TripleOsc or Zyn. Proud of the drums and all the sidechain compression on this one! Enjoy. Made with LMMS.

Wonderful DnB track... By the way, please check my track "1998", inspired in the kind of "jungle" sound I first heard when I was your age. I'd really appreciate your opinion, as one of WB's drum and bass experts smile

Your utilisation of the samples is really clever. I woundn't recognize most of them, and they all work flawlessly
