Louie Birthday Dedication

By cTrix on July 22, 2018 3:55 pm

What else needs to go here?!  A birthday dedication I recorded for a mate of mine who runs a bar.  To put it in context a bunch of us all made various artworks including patchworks, art installs, a birthday beer (!) and a  pinata.


- Drums on TD8 + Drummix (and some tidying up)
- Keys on Triton but using KEYSCAPE (oh I love this plug)
- Peavey Guitar + Digitech FX
- Vocals by me through RODE NT3 condenser + DBX Preamp + Motu 828


Version we played at the party had a video with it:

I never hear you doing vocals on your tracks... maybe I missed it, but great vocal work. Love the lyrics and the natural piano bar jam sound. Happy birthday Louie!

Great vibe. Louie is a fortunate man.

Holy mackeral, I almost cried because this is just so beautiful and heartwarming!  Louie is amazing!  And you all are amazing to be such good friends.  Wow!

THE VIDEO WITH CTRIX ON JAMMING ON MULTIPLE INSTRUMENTS WAS INCREDIBLE.

New life goal: to be the poor man's knockoff brand cTrix!  (dTrix?)

Did you also edit the video?  You are so helllllla talented heart

All jokes aside, the song was really strong, especially the ascending chords for the chorus.  And the harmony for the dad-prog meter was really pretty!

Thanks once again heart   Glad ya had the Louie feels - yeah, good dude for sure!  Played an acid techno set of 7" records (most of which I'd mastered!) on Friday night.  Suuuuch good nights.  Yup, made the video too.  That's actually simple for me coz it's my day job :-P

  Oh wow!  Totes didn't think of it being Lenny K - but I always loved his tracks.

Yeah, it takes a few hours for me to get to a point where I'm even slightly happy.  I can feel tuning just jumping everywhere - but it's a matter of practice - I guess.
