Ejection Day

By onezero on November 8, 2020 11:42 pm

A funky drum part came to mind, and I got it down in Ableton's 32 Pad Kit Special. As I built up some variations, they sounded better squashed and overdriven...and suggested an overall funky approach. There's a Drum Rack of handclaps, two tracks of PureSalem Mendiola (bridge pickup + Balls Effects KWB + Vox Wah, and then another clean with the neck pickup and Vox Wah...plus some Auto-Filter), and finally Epiphone bass (usual EQ-8 bass rolloff, plus Cabinet 4x10 bass simulation).


Sends: one room-sized convolution reverb, and one delay. Multi-band compression on the output.


Title: Orange was ejected.

Love the bass tone on this, very boisterous.

That drum beat is indeed very funky! And cool bass lines to complement it. This sounds great.

Feels quite uplifting, which makes sense.
