Expensive Uninsured Camera Equipment in Trunk

By Jim Wood on October 21, 2018 3:49 pm

Title from a bumper sticker I saw in L.A. years ago.  Extensive use of Sufi M4L plug-ins Khomasi and Palmas (hand claps). Vocal: AlterEgo Bones. Arabic maqam scale.

Whoa.. jaw drop. Listening through my studio monitors and sounds amazing. Chaotic but the underlying composition is crazy good. Saved and faved!

The arabic scale is super effective here.  Great track!  Love the time stretched out drums.  So clever.

That track title is stressing me out!  smile

Loving the huge sound on this one.  I think it could soundtrack a giant robot fight.

Texturally delicious. I especially like the density of the drums

October 25, 2018 1:36 am

whoa - this made me dizzy - serious panning my ears to maddness! nice job! 

October 26, 2018 3:51 pm

Huge stereo crunchy drums! Yais i like! I don't think i've knowingly heard this scale before either.  Nice work!

October 27, 2018 8:14 am

A really weird one! Has really some asian/eastern vibe... I also like the percussion very much. The voice elements blend very well to the whole soundworld

Yeah, the middle-eastern quality was inherent to the plug-ins. And who couldn't love the Bones vox.

big sound, I love the vocals despite how much they creep me out

Sounds like something's in the trunk for sure, something big! Yeah good drums, great bones vox (still gotta try those). You got some good sounds from those plugins, have not heard of Sufi, going to check it out!
