Hard Surface (WB24)

By spry on June 16, 2018 6:27 pm

Decided to take a little more time this week and play with my sound design.  Spent about 30 minutes editing the instruments, 45 minutes writing patterns, 15 minutes putting the structure together and 30 minutes mixing and fxing. total work time 2 hours.

I realized I had been neglecting the volume of my percussion lately so I decided to put in a simple but consistent drum pattern to switch it up. Also tried to isolate the melody instruments a little better.  And then I relied on the filters to set the momentum of the turnarounds. I think I like where this is going.

Love that rolling bass/drum. Mellow but insistent.

Don't know how you can work so quickly and still get great results.

If you can create a song in 2 hours, does this mean that you have 400 albums that you've released?

This is sitting at a really interesting BPM for your work where it is almost upbeat and almost laid-back at the same time.

thanks!  i try not think about what im doing too much and just sort of let my instincts lead me. its not until the end of the process that i try and think about what to change or remove and then i only make necessary changes.

I have to thank TriAngles for that inspiration.  he was the one who introduced me to the magic of 111 bpm big_smile  and no i dont have 400 albums yet.. im not sure what im going to do with many of these weeklybeats tunes but a lot of them are going toward a youtube project im working on. i think im only at 12 or 13 albums released if you include band albums as well.  one more lsdj to come out shortly too :X
