He’s out back

By BTS on August 7, 2016 8:54 pm

I wanted to add a more melodic element to my piece this week, so I decided to use Sundog Scale Studio.

I started the piece by creating an audio element to stretch in Reason. I used a series of sampled chords and placing them in the timeline. I then used 3 LeSpaces as Insert FX, and an Audiomatic into a Crapre as Master FX.

After I exported the file, I used Paulstretch to process the file.

For the melodic elements, I connected Reason to Sundog Scale Studio and experimented with different scale and chord combinations.  Once I was satisfied with the results, I exported the MIDI files and placed them in Reason.

Once in Reason, I placed the stretch file into a Synchronus, then using a Decimort into a RV7000, then a LeSpace as Insert FX.

For the drums I used a Redrum, with a Decimort into a RV7000 x2 for the Insert FX.  I processed the Kick drum separately, using 2 Redrum channels into a MicroMix and a Decimort into a  Reverb Combi as Aux/Sends. For the pattern generation, I used two PDT2s and a Euclid.

I made a mallet percussion line using a NN-XT, loaded with New Atlantis’ PURE Marimba refill.  I sent the NN-XT into two The Echo’s.

The Arp line was another NN-XT into a RV7000.

The main mixer Insert FX were an Audiomatic, a Polar and a Synchronus. For the Master FX, I used 2 Compressor Combis into an Ozone.

That underlying drone is pretty sinister!
