Section of “Towns in the Distance”

By BTS on May 22, 2016 7:50 pm

I wanted to upload the full track, but at 40+ minutes, even the smallest MP3 wouldn't meet the 16mb limit.  So I'm uploading a section of the track, and I'll upload the full track online soon.

I wanted to record a short track with an SQ-1 sequencing a bass line (in this case, made by an Alesis Nanobass).  The SQ-1 also sends clock and notes that will effect the sequencing of a FutureRetro Zillion, which will sequence a Meeblip Anode.  The Sync output on the SQ-1 then clocks a Korg Volca Sample.  All of this was recorded into Audacity through a Behringer 302 USB.

After this recording, I took the file into Paulstretch, and played with the "Stretch Multiplier" feature for each of the three passes I created.  I also used the "Binaural Beats" and other processing on the different passes.  The Multiplier causes the piece to slowly stretch itself out, rather than the standard uniform stretch.

I took the three passes into Reason and mixed and EQd all of the tracks.  For Insert effects, I used a LeSpace and three different RV7000s. For the Master effects, I used an Audiomatic and the Rebirth Mastering Suite, substituting the MClass Maximiser for an Ozone.

I could listen to this section for at least 30 mins, so I'm keen to hear the whole piece smile

The piece is available at Bandcamp. It still needed to be split up, but the whole piece is there.
