3 Hour live jam on headphones in bed

By cTrix on September 23, 2018 5:50 pm

Wasn't going to do WB this week because got flu and hearing is shot.  But I found crappy AKG headphones and I found my Volca Sample which had fallen down the side of my bed.  So I pulled it from it's nook and noodled up a bassy thing, did a live pass then added some novation minisynth noodles here and there.  I choose to record the bass as a seperate track - no MIDI sync, just noddleing around with some variation and pressing play at the right time. (I hope it's in tune!)  I also added a wind chime sample in place of a crash which I've never thought to do... and washed it in verb to kinda space out.
.
All of the sounds except for the synth noodles are the Volca Sample.    It's fun if nothing else!!  And I'm sure it's mixed like arse; but sounded ok in my flu'd up 3am-with-no-sleep state over headphones.  Work tomorrow; now for some sleep - arrgg, WB you've got the best of me again. :-P

Impressively catchy, especially considering the circumstances.

I take issue with you calling AKG phones crappy. XD But this is a really nice jam. I can hear some latin american influence in here.

It's not as bad as I remember now I listen to it - I remember having absolutely no idea if the bass was in tune or not!! hahaha.
