High Tension

By BTS on May 1, 2016 6:38 pm

It’s been a bit of a long week, so I decided to go in a more industrial, Throbbing Gristle direction. I went back to my old Sample CDs, this time using an old Computer Music Sample CD and combining it with a couple of Combinators I had and Propellerhead’s Parsec.

After laying down some elements in Reason’s sequencer, I created a NN19 and loaded it with a sample.  The NN19 was then run into a RV7000 and a Morfin XF via a Spider splitter.

I took one side of the Morfin’s output and processed it through an Alligator, a Scream, a LeSpace and two RV7000s. The level and the crossfader on the Morfin automations were recorded live.

A lower tonal track was created with a Parsec into Pulveriser and a RV7000. A horn-like part was created with the CPUGrains Combi into an Etch Red and a RV7000.

A sparse percussion part was made with another CM sample on a NN-XT, effected with a CRAPRE 2, a PEQ and an ECF-42. A final spare pad was created with a Zenon Citadel Combi.

The Master FX channel consisted of an Audiomatic, a Compressor and an Ozone.
The track was finished with a little bit of mixing and EQing.

I am so totally down with this--the sludgy pace of the bass, the dark Gristly atmosphere.  Fav'd, downloaded.

Very impressive - dark and ominous - fitting title.
