Another three-tracks-of-Danelectro-baritone track, this one focusing mostly on fingerpicking. Straight into the UA Volt 1, but one section (right channel, 2:45-3:10) sounded weirdly lacking in tonal color, so I put it through high-pass auto-filter with drive. (Some of that lack of tone comes from where I was playing on the high strings: the 12th fret's a bit flat, so it's tricky to get a clean note sounding there, and several times the note sounded dead.) There's some convolution reverb and the usual multi band eq/compression on the stereo mix.
The title comes from the asteroid 512 Taurinensis
This one goes up late for me, though not late for this year's streak. This one is another all-Danelectro-baritone piece, which started with syncopated drums (64 Pad Kit Jazz), got a keyboard line (PureMagnetik Berlin Rhodes), and then a bunch of baritone parts (basslines, chords, lead figures).
My initial pass at collaging these together...just didn't work. So I let it sit a day or so, and reassembled it from sections that I knew worked. Now it's kind of a summer jam.
Drums got some Max Humanizer and some randomization, as well as increased drive from Drum Buss. A couple guitar lines got high-pass auto-filter with drive, and a few got the Glue Compressor. Baritone bass got a bit of EQ-8 low-end rolloff, but not like my real bass does.
Sends: one room-sized convolution reverb (with high-pass auto-filter in front), Delay, Echo, and Valhalla Supermassive.
The stereo mix got an audio effect rack, on the Master Wide & Warm setting--a bit of a change from my usual, but it sounded better here.
Title comes from the number 79 being a Happy prime, Lucky prime, and Sexy prime (with 73).
I didn't begin this one until Saturday evening, with a sense of doing something sparse--a bit like Bark Psychosis, though this did end up going in another direction. Having checked out a few Ableton Loop sessions, I also thought to use the clip-level probability interface for the drums and keys--in these cases, usually the first beat is at 100%, but subsequent notes were at 75-80% probability.
Drums are Ableton's 64 Pad Kit Special, with a bit of Max Humanizer, and sends to convolution reverbs.
Bass is the usual 80s Epiphone Embassy II, with some EQ-8 low-end rolloff, and sends to the reverbs for air.
The keyboard is LABS soft piano, with Auto-Pan and a send to an Echo plugin.
Guitars are 2008 Danelectro baritone on both pickups, with inline high-pass Auto-Filter with drive, and sends to the reverbs.
The title comes from the fact that this is week 78 since the beginning of 2020, so...78 rpm records came to mind.
