telecommute (040420_120bpm)

By royb0t on April 5, 2020 1:03 am

Just perpetually exhausted from work. While it's different now working from home most the time, it's such a weird disconnect and it seems like things are still a scramble. There are positives, like visibility for my area at a bigger level, but I do wish I could just space out instead of finishing at 5pm or 6pm and wanting to just sleep, work, and repeat.


This track has a few spots that are interesting, but I wasn't feeling it. A few of the percussion pieces I created myself from weird sample sources and using FLStudio's "pogo" feature they recently posted about, kinda fun sliding/warping of the sample. There's an alright acid line that I didn't feel like cleaning up or going too wild on. I think my favorite is the TAL U-No-Lux routed through Audiomodern's Filterstep. Gives a really nice filter sequence pulses.


I did get my Native Instruments VSTs routed into Ableton, and played around with my TB-3 and some Max For Live devices that control it. It was pretty cool and actually where I started today, and the project has the raw take from that experiment, but entertainingly I went with a VST acidline I crafted instead, hah.
