Whistle While You Worry (WB35)

By spry on August 30, 2020 1:59 am

I got a new toy this week and I'm feeling better than last week.

Suzuki Andes 25F. I think I'm gonna call it the Whistlekeys or the Whistletar. I still dont know what I think about this thing. At times it feels like a pipe organ and other times it feels like a toy! I spent a good bit of time playing around with this one this week.

Started with a backing beat and chord progression. Took about 30 minutes putting together something straight forward in a key I can actually play somewhat competently in. Took about 30 minutes recording musings with the Whistlekeys. Then the rough part.. it took me a good 2 and a half hours to narrow down, edit, adjust, mix and loop sections from me playing. I took a break for lunch and came back after that to put together a structure. Spent about 45 minutes putting together a structure with all the parts except the Whistletar. Took another 45 minutes to put in and stack the whistle parts. Another 30ish minutes adjusting volumes and fx. 20 minutes putting in filters and 10 minutes adjusting the master channel and then finally done. Total work time about 6 hours on a Saturday afternoon!

Those whistling sounds work wonders. Love the choppiness in the samples. Between that and the chord progression, this has a totally pop feel to it. big_smile

What a jaunty tune that's sure to make one forget their worries for the time being.

These flutes sound so good on top of this round beat. It's light, it's fun. That new toy sounds like it's a lot of fun!

It does kinda feel like pop.. I suppose ripping of the ABABB format helps haha
