The Sharpest Image

Took this song from a few weeks ago to my two collaborators, Peter and Kendrick, and got a funky new bassline + a guitar lead. Much more laid back than last week's thing. To compensate for these luscious, dreamy vibes, I also did an extended version of another Franz Tormer track that's yet to be released, and while it's tonally all the way out in left field, really Over 9000 shit on the Franz Fuzzy Scale, I think I have to find a way to further develop it and make it work on the album.

your friend did a really nice job on guitar - the other one is still amazing

the snare drum plus fingersnap is so good, going to have to steal that.

Holy shit this is so good. That bass is killer and the keys + guitar are enrapturing. This is the kind of chill jam stuff I wish I could be writing.

Oh yeah, hot tip: shift the snap like a couple ticks, just a smidge before the snare/kick hit so you get a little added transient. I don't know that I did that on this one, I think I did, but it is always great.

I would highly recommend something like Ripchord or similar if you need inspiration. This song started as me playing around on Ripchord and expanding outwards from that.

Oh nice, I'll give that a shot. Reaper has a similar plugin called Chord Gun but it has a few limitations, the main one being that you have to use the virtual midi keyboard because it doesn't take midi controller input. But it's main feature is that you choose a key and it basically shows all the chords available in that key on a grid, each column pertains to the chord number and each descending row is similar chords that become increasingly unstable and further away from the key center. But it doesn't have the community driven presets nor can it do spread voicings (you'd just drop in the chord and rearrange it) so it sounds like both have their purposes.
