Weekly Beats 2018 #8

By antler on February 22, 2018 10:43 pm

Eschewing the high-tempo electro beats from last couple of weeks, I moved back in style to my very first entry with a slower, meandering tune. Initially this started out with the thought of going for that "RPG village" vibe, but the addition of jazz brushes (tried to emulate that in the noise chan) quickly moved the track away from that. I'm personally very fond of the laid-back, rubato second theme. I tend to put a lot of "stuff" in my LSDJ tracks and I'd like to practice and remind myself not every step of every phrase of every chain needs to be filled (unless you're Aquellex, haha). I also played around more on my keys this time, which I think resulted in a more intricate harmonic progression than some of the other tracks.

LSDJ 5.8.8. Also used RX Elements to get rid of some clicks. Lower volume stuff like this generates lots of those in LSDJ.
