Just Keep Going

By mechlo on December 5, 2016 12:01 am

Just got my Alesis QS7.1 back. It's a multi-timbral gem of a synth and I decided to write an entire track with it being controlled by my Octatrack. What came out was a pretty cinematic-y theme thing.

Whoo those are some purty synths my man.  Are you doing any post-production on these?  I'd like to see the kick and snare come up in volume, and then maybe a slight compression on the entire drum section.  Great melodies and chords here.  Love those "air breath" backing notes.

Thanks! I didn't have a ton of time for post but I just started playing with the UAT plugins. I have a LA2A compressor on the drum track and a Fairchild channel strip on the synths. Minimal and mixed through the headphones considering it was around 1am by the time I finished it.
