PLOP! in the water

By license on January 12, 2020 6:43 am

This week got off to a good start and then things just kept going sideways over and over, from work to a blizzard to this beat itself. At least in the last case I felt pretty OK with giving it the finger and getting a little nasty at the end.

Sequenced in Renoise, again smashed a bit in the ol' outboard compressor. In the spirit of the week, I inadvertently mixed with the treble cranked on the master bus, but it was too late to fix it, so I just rolled with it. Hopefully it doesn't wreck your eardrums.

Mostly the same samples as the last one, but I stole a sample from the end of miraclemiles's last submission. Also monologue stars in the lead role.

Thank you very much. I'm still figuring this stuff out!

Excellent. I find your drum grooves inspiring and your production super tight.

Thank you. I hope I can find a way to carry this into some other styles.

i thought it sounded good but a little thin and boy howdy your explanation made it all clear and understandable. Good job continuing in spite of the week you had!

Thank you! Yeah, it was definitely off, and hopefully I don't make that same dumb mistake again.

Now I've properly listened. Love that delay, wowza, Bam Bom! Nice kick and bass. I think I hear my sample, that was some organelle processed vocal sounds I think. Nice use and chops on that. This is nice. Like the breakdown in middle.

Great drums and rythm elements in the synth!
Sound is good on headphones...

Thanks man! Yeah I thought it was a guitar, I just heard a little rhythm in it and I had to do something with it. I gotta do more of those breakdowns, that was fun!

Thank you! I noticed it did sound noticeably better on headphones for some reason. Weird, because I mixed it completely on speakers!

Excellent groove with the drums throughout the track.  Especially dig the middle finger section breakdown towards the end.

Thank you! The breakdown was all Monologue, which I think shines when you fling all those CCs at it and just let it get weird. This was the first time I used it with Renoise and it was pretty cool just going to a step, flicking a switch or a knob on the synth, and recording those changes a step at a time. I rudely cranked its fader because I wanted it come to the fore; in retrospect I probably should have just recorded it normally, normalized it, and faded into it (yay Reaper's non-destructive editing). Thanks for listening!

Today 6:32 pm

crackin' snare, mix is def on the bassier side but i ain't mad at that
