Mbira Reflip

By cTrix on July 29, 2018 1:42 pm

Combinations of detuned Mbira's (they sound mad when you slow em right down!)
-
And a bunch of other instrumentation with a slightly PNG Villager edge.  Tweaked from Omnisphere patches plus some wild synth programming.  Drums with Drummix.

Really good sounds in this one. I got to check out that Drummix thing. Did you play it with fingerdrumming on pads or something like that?

Incredible sounds here. Great instrument choices, everything blends so well, love it.

Sounds fun and serious at the same time. I love it when art manages to catch that balance. I'm curious as to what mbiras you're using, and also definitely adding Drummix to my wishlist.

Mbira's are omnisphere based (sample library).  I do have access to a Mbira which has an acoustic pickup in it, but for some reason it's humming like crazy at moment.  I figured "there may be one in Omni?" and it was so huge and dank that the track completely transformed!!  Was originally going for something way more chilled.

Thanks heaps peeps!  I've been taking a break from WB for a while, so it's been unreal to have some support on a very under-the-radar return to making some tunes heart
