String

By onezero on July 3, 2016 5:25 pm

A couple of very busy weeks involving a work deadline, parties, travel, shows, and guests, so I didn't have a lot of time to ruminate on this one.  (Also, I haven't had much time to listen and make comments, so my apologies!)

I started with a beat (Drum Rack of MPC samples), added Rhodes bass (later shifted up a couple octaves when I added real bass), Operator (Funky Organ), Clavinet (Tension, with Auto-Filter with LFO on for wah effect), Impulse for hand claps, real bass, and two tracks of Res-O-Glas guitar. 

Both bass and guitar went straight into the converter, no outboard effects, but the two channels of guitar got some inline processing: Dynamic Tube into Cabinet in one case, and just Cabinet in the other. 

All MIDI instruments got M4L Humanizer and double Auto-Pan (for level variations and L-R positioning without having to think too much about placement), and the real instruments just got some Auto-Pan for positioning. 

Sends: two convolution reverbs (Tanglewood and a dub hall), Filter Delay, and M4L Tapped Delay. Usually I keep the bass dry, but I liked having some reverb on this one.

Title comes from the fact that it's the 26th week, and that's the number of dimensions of spacetime in bosonic string theory (at this writing).

Fierce bass, love the dreamy funk of the guitars over the top as well.
