Further Discoveries in Air

By onezero on February 25, 2018 5:28 pm

With this week's getting-caught-up-after-Thundersnow activities...I wasn't coming up with much until late in the week, when I started playing around with some drum patterns with the Korg Minipops samples (with gate and drum buss). Everything ended up in-the-box: a tom voice from the new Wavetable synth, a bunch of Analog pads, bass in Operator (settings lifted from a yoctonaut track I did for my 2017 weekly tracks), vocoder on a return channel, attached to another Analog pad, and another sparse Operator voice.  Sends were convolution reverb (with high-pass auto-filter) and Echo (LFO band-pass filter).  Everything got full-chain master.


Title from Joseph Priestly's publication describing his oxygen-isolating experiments, because oxygen is element 8.

More subdued and relaxing than I would have expected from such a reactive element. Looking forward to Fluorine! ::)

Thank you!  This suggests that maybe I do something around the theme of FOOF...

Thank you!  I think the gate on the drums also contributes to that crispness...though we all know the potential dangers of gated drums.

The song sounds pretty clean and minimalistic to me. Nice early 90ies electronic music vibe in the air.

A sly satisfying groove with lots happening to discover, and it all fits so nice in the mix - well done.Love that idea of Vocoder on return channel, feel like there's a lot of potential in using returns creatively. Catching up on some of your tunes, enjoying!

Made me feel like I was eating pop rocks with my ears. Nice track.
