Warm night oddities

By laguna on August 12, 2018 11:49 pm

I finally got an Elektron Machinedrum, and this comes from my first own pattern on it. Recorded in Ableton and chopped to add variation and interest. Sadly now I'm in a hotel room without the drumbox, so I had to finish the track adding other elements.

The voice clip came from Techmoan, one of my favourite Youtubers.

I don't know how I ended in some kind of "future bass" territory. Wish I had more time to polish the transition and add this to my future glitch hop masterpiece album wink

Not really finished, but I think it has some powerful ideas smile

Now I wish you a great week, and go to sleep

Effective use of the short delay(s) on the vocal. Smooth transition/morph!

Thanks Jim! Actually the vocal sample is heavily timestretched with the most stuttering and artificial sounding algorith, and then sent to a longer delay for ambience. I was going for a "90s jungle Akai timestretch" effect, though Ableton gives more algorithms than the classic "cyclic stretch" smile

Nice laid back beat but then it takes a nice surprising turn with those arps and drum breakdown.  The machinedrum looks pretty sweet too, enjoy that new toy! smile

Very nice, this fits really well with a warm night city atmosphere I think. The switchup towards the end is great, really fun listen heart

Still discovering my new toy! And besides, with all the (work related) travelling I did this summer, it has been relatively untouched. I should do something about it wink

Thanks a lot, Eric

Always ready to take you back to the nineties wink

There's a free utility, called Akaizer, that emulates that "cyclic timestretch" algorithm. Runs on all systems. You should give it a try.

Thanks a lot, Matteo

Thanks a lot, Hieme. Glad you liked the switch at the end. I'm myself not really convinced it's correctly made, but I run out of ideas

Now some warm weather advice...
