Illuminating Metal

By onezero on March 25, 2018 10:52 pm

A week that was very intense on a number of fronts, including my picking up laryngitis. For this one, I fiddled with some acoustic drums in a weirdly busy syncopated pattern, threw some Korg Minipops on, and then threw on some Ableton Electric, and some grand piano and Analog, which I took back off (though I left in the Electric and moved a piano line over to Electric). I put down some baritone (which I then took off, after I duplicated the line on bass), and then some Epiphone Moderne, some hand claps on Impulse...then finally some Ableton clavinet (with the Tension instrument).


Effects: Drum Buss on all drums, EQ-8 (to roll off low frequencies to get them away from the kick) and Cabinet on bass, low pass + high pass auto-filter with drive into Cabinet on guitar.  Sends: Echo (Dark Fade), and two convolution reverbs with different impulses.  Everything but the acoustic kit and bass got auto-pan, and everything got Full-chain master.


Title from the combustible nature of magnesium, element 12.

Love that stop-and-start bass / percussion. Looking forward to Argon. ::)

Groovy thing. I love the sound of the bass and the funky rhythmic orgie. Thanks and get well soon.

Thank you, Jim!  Argon...ambitious, but if I can pull it off, I should try to work in something about the Phoebus cartel conspiracy.

Thank you!  Still a bit under the weather, but definitely on the way back.  Being able to declare work-from-home has been helpful.

Thank you!  I hadn't thought of the spaciousness--I'll have to listen again with that in mind!
