The drain

By Simon Koehn on November 8, 2020 1:02 pm

Took an old track, 'slice to midi', arp on the sampler, automate changes on the arp and sample playabck; that pretty much gets you half way there haha. Nice way to get some rhythmic sampling that you'd probably never make by sequencing things out. I wonder how many more weeks I can completely avoid making a melody or rhythm from my own head haha!

I kind of like the idea of iterating and reiterating on ideas to create new and different ideas. Is the old track here on WB too? Would love to check it out. smile

Haha, you've been pretty successful with the pure processing tracks that you've been making so I'd bet you can keep it up for awhile.  This one came out pretty awesome, it sounds like it could be from a movie score during a tense scene.  The rhythm came out really nice and those weird like resonance spikes give this a lot of character.

It's always interesting hearing the results when doing that hey.  This is a cool track!  Great little glitchy groove and harmonies.

Nice, I like the atmosphere you made with this track the higher melody line that fades in from 1:20 especially is pretty cool.
