Go Wiv Da BASS.DLL Line!

By cTrix on March 19, 2018 12:01 am

A silly track from me this week smashing out on a revers bass tip :-D  Cowbell builds, silly drops, huge ramp ups - all while hands are planted firmly in the air.
.
GO WIV DA BASS LINE - KICK IT AND IT SOUNDS LIK DIS!  Yes, had had a few drinks when I started this - was extremely sober this morning when I mastered it.  Hehehehe.
.
Thanks to Aday for helping me resolve the initial version that was silent!!
.
There's quite a few technical probs with this track!!  Especially in the last section... hats are off by about -.3 of a beat, and there's fuckn' Reaper mini fade ramps on everything I repasted for the ramp down at the end (not sure how that setting got reset) and some automation went AWOL.  It's funny tho, I think the pounding kick just pulls it all back together somehow.
.
In case anyone wants to see the session:

.
You'll notice it's all waveform.  This is something I tend to do when working on oldskool tracks - I'll pre-bounce every musical element into a sample and have a separate "sample generation" session where I pre-pitch and prepare everything.  Often baking in reverbs and EQ into the WAV elements too.  Then repitching the elements in the second session if they are not a musical sequence.  I guess it's a kickon from using the Amiga, but I just find it gives me the ease of throwing sequences around, doing microtiming and seeing exactly when things come in and out.

Damn, son! I really hadn't heard such ravey kicks since I was 14 smile

A little less melody and you could confortably move to Belgium, specially with that breakbeat intermission in the middle

Rave on, my friend!
