Rough Start

I didn't find out about the project until late and only had a few hours to throw something together before I would have missed the deadline for the first week, so here you go!

I like the beat. Would be great to follow some kind of a lead instrument too. Thanks for the track!

I like the buzzing. I was hoping it would get a little more frightening but it's cool just hanging out there.

Thanks! I would have liked to have done more with it, but I found out about this project pretty late and only had a few hours to put something together for the first week's entry and didn't want to miss the deadline...

Thanks, glad you dig it! The samples are from a Samples From Mars sample pack, and plugins you hear include Soundtoys Decapitator & Little Plate, Surreal Machines Modnetic, PSP Vintagewarmer 2, FabFilter Pro-Q 2, iZotope Vinyl & various modules from Ozone 8, all controlled with an Ableton Push 2. No synth here, but I am a big fan of Omnisphere 2 and the Arturia stuff, and various others. My complete set-up is here: http://equipboard.com/freezeetch ... and if you want to hear more, check out http://freezeetch.bandcamp.com

I recently purchased the Samples from Mars megapack or whatever it was that they had (the whole site was on sale for one price?). I'll have to pour through it again. I also have been eyeballing some of those plugins (fabfilter most of all). I'll check out your equipboard and bandcamp now! big_smile

Yep, I got that Samples From Mars megapack too ($39 was too good to pass up!). I realized after the fact that I don't have nearly enough space on my hard drive for everything it includes, haha.

I think that sample pack was the primary reason I ended up dedicating an external drive to just samples.

Looking forward to your next submission!
