My Best Regards

By onezero on November 20, 2016 7:49 pm

Busy week with other music prep going on for a friend's upcoming dance performance, so I put a bit less time into this one--little time for automation going on, but there might be something worthwhile in this one.  I started with some drum lines I was hearing, and ended up abandoning them in favor of some distantly related variations.

Drum rack of dry drums (low-pass auto-filter to roll off the high end, high-pass on the kick with a big resonant peak to give the kick impact), Impulse instruments of tabla and hand claps, Tension with pizzicato strings, Electric (Old School Rhodes), another Electric (Crunchy MKI) with LFO band-pass auto-filter and send to Filter and Simple delays, electric bass (sidechained with the drums), and two guitar (both Moderne, one wah into the Amp plugin + send to harmonizer, one fuzz and wah, with a separate delay chain).  Some convolution reverbs, delays, and the M4L Dual Harmonizer for a kind of chorus.  I tracked a lot of stuff, some of which got unused.  (You can hear some pops in bass edits here; I've cleaned them up since, but this .mp3 has them.)

Title comes from the Wikipedia note on the number 46, which apparently in Japanese can be pronounced a bit like the phrase for "my best regards."

Motown / Funk vibes. Very nice!

Your basslines are great again and again.
Very good relaxed funk... I will take this to my @work collection

Definetely feeling some Motown vibe. The whole motive reminds me vaguely of "Hercules" by Aaron Neville (in a good way, of course), though you quickly take the spacefunk route and depart from the classic sixties/seventies funk formula.

Great effort as usual. I should catch up with your latest tunes smile

Fantastic, you can't help but be relaxed listening to this, really like the hand claps and the explanation of the title

Great filthy bass groove!  Groovy with a good bit of wonkiness.
