Procrastinated as usual til the end of the week.  Here's another semi-quiet thing.  Hope you all are doing well!  Thanks for listening! smile

Wow, love how the track opens up at around 1:41. Really enjoyed this. smile

Hell yeah man, been looking forward to this since I saw the preview on IG.  Super cool track, I'm really digging all the reverse hits. They really put an interesting spin on this track.  Love when everything comes in together at 1:45, lots of energy there.

Very nice, lots of different elements that all fit nicely together! What did you use for the drums?

The intro is awesome and then the track scales up. This is so good and so developed. Very nice layers and so many subtle parts like the pad from 3:03.

That buildup is fantastic.  But really a fantastic vibe throughout.  You seem to always get such great results through procrastination.  It's either a very effective music-making technique for you, or if it's not, I'd really like to hear some non-procrastinated tracks!

Wow, fantastic. I think a few of those synths could do with a less aggressive filter, but overall it's really nice.

is this all ableton?

July 15, 2020 3:46 am

Shoot, this is so good, awesome progression with each section coming in, love the synths all bouncing off each other.

Fave bit is when those tasty drums come in.  Offsets it all nicely.

Lovely textures and melody.

Nice, love when the drums come in, they sound great, and that haunting voice. Good one!

Thanks, the drums were I believe from one of the stock drum kits in Ableton.  Used some auto filter, reverb and drumbus a bit.

Yep all in Ableton but the sounds were mishmash of Operator and Spitfire Audio's Albion One & Stratus.

Thank you!  Haha I know I always whine about procrastinating..  I wish I could just not have those inner arguments with myself about "well maybe i'll start this day" or "nah maybe tomorrow".  I'd save some time and less beating myself up over when i finally get around to it.  I'm my own worst enemy! smile

The pickups in this track hit so well: from quiet to a point of tension between hype and calm. It was intense.

The tones are so full. Great texture and and progressions. Really big when the full rhythm kicks in. Picking up all kinds of inspiration from this. I think the procrastination works for you smile
