B minor, 4/4, 185bpm.

prod notes:

2012 called, they want their 1xLSDJ dnb back. god i'm rusty. still, to see me doing what would've taken 2012 me a couple weeks in well under 3 hours quick-and-dirty is pretty neat. things i learned:

* i'm still really really bad at transitions and outros. what else is new LMAO
* my usual technique of overproduction and just adding ad nauseum really messes up the DMG processor, i have to remember to stop the song to make anything above minor changes or else it'll take 30 seconds to move a chain. DAWs have spoiled me
* also on overproduction: this is a stark contrast to my last few releases, which i did pretty minimally, for the most part. this is kinda what happens when i go all-out with no respect for dynamic range. it's a bit flimsy and the lack of polish shows more here than in my other submissions, but sometimes it's good to cut loose
* i>VI is boring but still kinda fun
* throwing polish out the window and just fkin doing it is a great way to get ideas out. i'm often kind of a perfectionist - if it's not exactly how i want it it's not worth doing at all - so this is a good exercise for me
* as instrument-oriented as i am now (journey & several other recent tracks and wb submissions came from keyboard improvisation) i can still draft stuff in LSDJ very capably, which is nice! sometimes i almost forget that i spent most of my high school slaving over this program

lsdj reported work time 2:33


* 1z LSDJ v5.7.8 (arduinoboy ver.) running on modded DMG-001 hardware: internal prosound, backlight & bivert
* behringer UMC-22 USB audio interface for recording & mixing
* REAPER for post-prod, using the following FX:
** reafir, in subtractive mode, for signal noise cleanup
** reaverb w/ samplicity "Vienna Hall" reverb, for a little bit of space
** AIR maximizer, to improve loudness

That transition was serviceable, the intro was a little over the top though. The fade out was just long enough.

This goes right into my chiptune DJ set. Such a tight track! you say no polish, i say fckin RAW! what a banger!

Maaaan when it opens up at the ~60% mark (wb doesn't show times). You did this in *three* hours?!

yeah - i did a ton of this stuff way back. workflow is just write the chorus/drop ish, then build an intro, then lazily fill in the rest repeating the chorus bit again, and try not to think about it too hard wink
