A complex week, but here's a bit of a house track.  Three Ableton drum kits (Bang On, Ichor, Hilda), two Electric piano instruments, Collision, grand piano via Simpler (with auto-filter cutoff), and bass.  Sends are delay, convo reverb, and Echo. Full-chain master on everything.


Title from one of the first industrial uses of bromine--in photography.

great mix+production on the drums.  I still have yet to really understand sidechain shenanigans as well as Send/buss business.

This is an industrial-strength powerhouse.

This is great, I like how considered and delicate each item is, the piano is great the interplay is nice. The piano reminds me of Todd Terry's "Dreams of Santa Anna"

Love that funky dub style bass.  You rule the world of bass!! So fat and gritty. Great sound for a trio with drums and electric piano. The holy trinity! Downloading

Thank you!  Drum Buss is a plugin that comes with Live 10--it's not really a complex routing thing--more like a drop-in VST that abstracts a lot of compression and tone-shaping, all optimized for drums.  It's a painless way of getting good sound with impact.

Thanks!  I'll have to look that up! I wasn't totally sure about the one electric line, but it had character, so I left it in.

Thank you! It's such a fun instrument to play, and so satisfying in a track...

Soon I should be able to start listening and commenting again...

Thank you!  I don't usually pan the source channel, but these drums are going out to send/return channels--one with Ableton's Simple Delay and one with Ableton's Echo. In each case, it's easy to supply a different delay value to left and right, so you get the delayed-panning effect.
