Zone Melting

A complex week with a lot going on (some good--a birthday, a show--and some not good), so this track came together in little bits here and there, done mostly in-the-box due to difficulty of finding tracking time.  I thought I'd try something different with sound sources, so the drum rack uses samples from the Korg Minipops, with a little boosting of the kick from Auto-Filter.  I used Analog for the bass, and also for a pad and a melody line, and threw in Impulse hand-claps. There's some tortured grand piano (in Live's Simpler) that's going through modulated band-pass auto-filter, and a little fill-in track of Bastl Kastle.


Sends: convolution reverb with a plate reverb impulse, simple delay, and Filter Delay with modulated Auto-Filter in front of it.


Title from a method of refining boron, element 5.  I should have tried to use the Res-O-Glas on this, since boron is used in fiberglass, but I learned that a bit too late.

Happy Birthday! (whoever it was!)

Big fan of Minipops after learning about it via Aphex Twin's Syro album.  This is good driving at night music!

I like the groove on that. Great mix too!

Love the drums and percs driving the whole track.  A chill and laid-back groovy tune.  Nice work!

Thank you, Emily!  This past week was more stable...though of course this coming week features Events.

Thank you, Drew! It was mine (the 2nd), though there were complications. We kind of spread the festivities out.  Yeah, the Minipops is a really nice set of sounds--not flashy, but solid utility players.
