Double Flip

By theGuen on May 13, 2018 8:16 pm

This week is a real double Flip...
I started to flip some movie Soundtrack with Edda dell'Orso. I exported it as wav file to use it as playback for comming up with a bass... I recorded the bass. The simple but great vocal  melody from the soundtrack was not on my export and i hadn't the original project file at hand. So i started to play the melody as far as remembered on that organ synth. For the drums i chopped a break from my export. As it was only a break and i had to remove some kicks i added some more hihats and douled that base drum. The recorded bass doesn't fits as expected so i chopped it up and used some notes as a sample instrument.
So from the original flip only the beginning and that middle part with the movie dialog is left. I thought it was funny because most of the original samples where gone and it's a lot of synth now... Sadly dell'orsos voice barely made it to the track...
Used softsynths are Tal Noisemaker, a Kontakt e-guitar patch with lot's of delay and my favorite this week Aalto from madrona labs (It's the feedback guitarlike thing).
I am a bit confused how this happens... but quite happy with the outcome.

Hope you enjoy...
have a nice week!

Very nice.  I really like the incorporation of the movie soundtrack and the beat is really dope.

Superb and ghostly reimagining. Well done.

Great beginning of the song. the main melody is so nice and well supported by the synth arps. sweet one.

It's so gritty. Maybe you can try it again with everything intact.

Fantastic. That drum beat is fat, I love it.

i feel like "double flips" could be a great album. the track came out well, and i like the story to it. my favorite part is "I am a bit confused how this happens... " which is how i often feel when working with samples of any kind, but definitely agree the outcome is nice. i think this is a technique you should try again the future smile

Nice one! love the beat and flips, great samples, and instruments. I totally agree about "I am a bit confused how this happens... ", sometimes it just ... happens, freaking magic!

Cool inspiration and use from the movie.  Digging that head-nodding beat!  It's always fun when confusion leads to fun and happiness smile NOICE!

Thanks man, i will try to use this as a technique... It's always hard for me to play something without having the actual beat in mind... Here i have a little of my synth from the first version on the chopped drums... I think that makes it feel more Hiphop...
