Long Drive

By BTS on March 13, 2016 6:28 pm

I decided to continue experimenting with the FutureRetro Zillion.

The instrument set-up for this track started with a DSI Tetra going into an EHX Deluxe Memory Boy, then a
Mr. Black SuperMoon, a Boss DD-5, the stereo output then went into an EHX Cathedral and the final stereo output was recorded into a Zoom R16.

The first set of tracks were recorded live, playing with an iPad running ChordPolyPad through iConnectMIDI2+. After this, I recorded again, this time without the Supermoon, and sequenced with FutureRetro Zillion.

I then took the recorded audio into Reason to Mix & EQ the tracks.

I took the stereo tracks and sent each set to their own mix bus, where I added effects.

To add additional movement to the part sequenced with the Zillion, I used an Etch Red Filter on the the track, and added an Audiomatic and a Synchronus to the FX Insert. I also added automation to the volume fader to bring the part in and out.

For the pad, I used a Rotor and a RV7000 mkII to the FX insert.

For the Master FX, I used a MClass EQ, a MClass Compressor, a MClass Maximizer and an Audiomatic.

Exquisite ambient texture--it's like floating in an aquarium.

I put this one in my phone, so I could listen at dawn when crossing the park back home. Delicious ambient
