SPLATFEST COVER TIME!
Sunday, Sept 3, 16:15
It's streak.club time, but I also noticed that PRC356 has a Splatoon 2 remix this week and since I'm a Splatoon fan, I thought I'd give this a shot.

16:15: First, learn the song. Chords, key, scales. There's a bit of note-borrowing going on from other scales here (something that I am pretty bad at - I stick to the scale tones a LOT).
17:30: Okay it took me like 30 minutes to get a 4-bar riff. At this rate I'm not going to finish before streak.club's deadline.
19:30: "Done". Only because I'm out of time - the parts all need to be redone so it's more solid. It's kind of outside of my ability but now that I've laid down the song it means that I can practice… and with time…
All of the parts (4 guitar tracks, 1 bass track) are played live (over many takes) except for the drums, which is a computerized drummer.
I guess it's awesome that I managed to do a remix in a few hours that's recognizable as the original.
Total time: 3h 15m
Super-busy week and weekend. But here's a minimal track: just drum rack of Analog for synth drums, ring-modulated tabla, electric bass (Epi P-J into the board, cabinet plugin, reverb send, and rolling off -6 dB below 100Hz, mostly one track but an occasional other voice) and sparse Analog into a reverb send. Sends: two convo reverbs and one delay. Full-chain master on the 2.
Title from the frequency shift plugin on the ring modulated tabla.
Working on more 8bit influenced music this week because I was supposed to do some busking outside PAX today with some chiptune homies, but that sort of fell through, so I just used that time to finish this song. Feeling very self-reflective these past few weeks...
