Untitled Week 38

I am cracking up at this great picture of Derek Jacobi I just found.  Loving the "Sagat-Eyepatch" look.

This song has electric guitar, electric bass, Digitakt, and MIDINES controlled by Digitakt.  I used the factory preset drumkit (mostly).  Some sweeps and filters in Ableton Live, mastering in Reason.  This song came together in about 3 hours.  I spent a few days trying to connect MIDINES to the Digitakt and finally got it to work.  I incorrectly looped the lead guitar at the end of the track and it ended up "catching" on another beat, and I thought it was amusing, so I kept it.  In other news, I hate cooking and I learned how to cook a Pomodoro spaghetti sauce from scratch and tried to make nacho cheese sauce.  It was almost fun!  smile  I eat a lot of take out and am trying to correct that.  I visited my friend in Chicago and we played a bunch of Street Fighter V and let me tell you, there is nothing better than playing Street Fighter V with a buddy that you can joke around with and trash talk, ESPECIALLY when the skill level is close so you really have to try to win!  SO FUN.

Can someone name this tune for me?  I didn't spend a ton of time mixing.  I have had a good but busy week (with the aforementioned Chicago visit).  I have to figure out how to create a better schedule so I have some relax time, and better boundaries around work time.  You bedroom producers know the struggle.  You should be working, but you want to relax, and you can't relax because you are still thinking about work!

Love you all!  If you are on instagram: http://instagram.com/orangedrinkmusic

"Walking Down the Hall?" Sorry, man, but if you can come up with a piece this catchy, you shouldn't be having title troubles.

Hee hee!  I heart you.  It was actually a matter of running out of time!  I am sure something will come up as I listen to it over the next few days.  Thanks for listening Jim!!!

It really builds up a nice energy.  My title suggestion would be "No Time to Relax."

great drive here! The end section with the guitary sound is very meditative.

A nice build especially when the uplifting guitars kick in.  It has a nice pace and those guitar strums just bring it all together.  Noice!

Like the tempo of this and yet it is very relaxing/mellow with the guitar, don’t have a better title then mikememo’s “Cracker Jack and Chill” is perfect.
