Supply

By Simon Koehn on March 22, 2020 11:45 am

Playing with some juicy granulation. Working lots on a sound design project so I'm trying to squeeze weekly beats into quite a small amount of time. I find a time constraint always ends up being a bit hit and miss but this week it feels somewhere in between. Keen to get better and working fast! Anyone got tips for speeding things up?

Yeah I know that time crunch game, especially these last few weeks.  Your tracks always come out so well crafted though so it seems like you've got a good handle on work flow.  What I've been trying to focus on lately to speed things up is learning daw shortcuts, especially in the piano roll.  There's not shortage of youtube vids on that kind of stuff luckily.

Cool track this week dude, its got a great balance of chill and tense.  That resonance swell(?) at the end the end its a really cool way to end it too.

An enjoyable build up there.  Dig that end tone.  What project are you working on?

Thanks! Yeah I find when you completely drown things in reverb and granular processing you end up in this kinda low-key but tense vibe haha.
Thats a good call re. learning shortcuts. I use a lot of them regularly but I could definitely speed some things up by getting my head around the rest of them!

Thanks man! Yeah so often with this kind of track when I finish up arranging it I hear my effects sends just ringing out infinitely and I'm like "oh I guess we just end on fading this out", its a bit lazy really. Almost always I end up sampling it for a pad in a new track too haha

Just started working on the sound for a little video game some old pals are making. Its been super fun so far, still lots to learn.

Ah, very cool re video game work.  I've been wanting to get some work in that area and have been looking around.  If you hear of any work in that area, definitely let me know.  That'd be awesome.  Good luck with it!
