Magnetic Penetration

By onezero on October 14, 2018 9:13 pm

Despite a lot going on, I did manage to carve out a few minutes during the week to work up some drum parts and keyboard parts (inspired by Ableton releasing some new instrument sample sets), giving me a bit of time on the weekend for guitar and bass. I'd not expected to do this kind of smoooov jazz-funk vibe, but here we are.

Drums: Ableton's 64-pad rock set through Drum Buss, with a touch of M4L Humanizer. Still chasing a syncopation thing, but this one felt a bit better than last week's.   Keys: Ableton's new Basic Suitcase electric piano, through Chorus on the Slow Pan preset (with tweaking).  Not wanting to leave well enough alone, I also auto-panned this.  Also after going through a number of other new Ableton keys, I settled on the good old MkI2 Crunch.  Guitar: several passes of Res-O-Glas direct into the board, going through Auto-Filter high-pass and low-pass with drive, brought down a touch with Utility.  Bass: good old Epi P-J on the P pickup through EQ-8 for bass rolloff and Cabinet for air.


Sends: two convolution reverbs (small studio rooms) with Auto-Filter in front to cut off lows, and two different Echo channels (Hallow Trip and Dub Syndicate).  Full-chain master on everything.


Title from one of the properties of Niobium: it apparently has the greatest magnetic penetration depth of any element.

I always look forward to your WB posts: such a wonderful amalgam of delightful music and informative bits of element information. No exception here!

Very cool, it has an Acid Jazz meets The Doors type feel to it. Small point but I love the space you've got on the cymbal really nice

Thank you!  I think the 64-pad kit makes the difference here-there a  lot of cymbal edge-hits, and I was able to make a little pattern there.

That bass is fantastic. It's on point.

Lovely, such a gentle headbanger heart As Dev said the bass is top notch.
