Jamming with Myself

By roboctopus on May 17, 2020 10:20 pm

Wasn't very productive this week. (But my Animal Crossing Village is starting to look nice lol).

With nothing to show Sunday morning, I recording myself playing the drums in my garage with my iPhone's voice memo app or whatever. I sat the phone on the floor tom lol. My drum set is a cheapo I got from a pawn shop for $150 like 18 years ago.  It's made by Hohner XD. I actually really like the sound of the drums. I should just sample and loop it. (Note, I am not really a drummer. This is one take with mistakes and some really clumsy fills.)

Anyway, I recorded the drums into Reaper via headphone out jack on my phone for additional hi-fi, um, stuff. I added a descending bass line, two janky tracks of guitar, and distorted improvised/gibberish vox really low in the mix. Boom! Done!
