Take The Red Line

By ecso on February 4, 2018 9:51 pm

I missed last week's deadline by 9 seconds so I tried to be less last minute this time. (It's fine though since I didn't really like what I finished.) SOOOO new week, new song, no screwing around. This song is an ode to my time in Chicago. I tried to make the everything sound like it was sampled. I don't think I quite got there, but close. I hope you like it.

Equipment/VSTs used:
FL Studio
Addictive Drums 2 - Modern Jazz Sticks
Addictive Keys - Mark One
Bass recorded by me
SP-404 SX for glitching/lofi-ification

That piano is doing fine work, but maybe it can do some other work once in a while too.

The mood here is great, especially with that lo-fi sound. I also really dig the sound of the drums, they're subtle in some ways but very present at the same time. Nice work

Sweet groove! Great sound for the drums.

Haha Was that the classic stutter of the 404sx? I personally run some things through real tape when I want them to sound as samples.

Pretty nice beat, quite hypnotic. Quite good drums in here

Yeah, I was surprised with the sound I was able to get from those. Thank you!

That's exactly what it is! I got what I thought was a decent tape deck only to find out it didn't work at all. But I definitely will be getting another one soon. Thanks for the compliment!
