I'm too old for this shit.
Been having a bit of a mess with some interesting sequencers in Live 10 with Max4Live and made this very 2002-ish light FM melodic ramble. It's not a deep dive of generative melodies, quite obvious stuff, but it kept me amused and got me wanting to try something a bit more ambitious.
(I have now fixed the issues with the reverb on this. For some reason the plug-in I was using was glitchily 'gating' the tail)
One of the things I love about living in the UK is we get interesting weather, sun and rain at the same time, varied clouds, drizzle, damp sunny days. I couldn't live somewhere where it was sunny all day every day, would drive me mad.
This week I was trying to get more acquainted with Ableton Live 10, messing about with drum racks and the like, and inadvertently made this. It isn't really a track as such, more a jam. The project was not organised properly, too many effects in the drum rack for instance, not spread across tracks so they were not easily mixed, but that's because it wasn't meant to be. Similarly mastering this was a nightmare as it was difficult to alter frequencies elsewhere.
Anyway, it's a bit of work, I'd rather do something than nothing, plus I am a lot more comfortable using drum racks in Live. So there you go.
Still working on VCVRack bits elsewhere, so for a break here's a more traditional production. Mastering, as ever, leaves a lot to be desired, bit too much high end that needs taming, but generally I like the grittiness and fullness of this. Proud of the beat too, all individual samples, no breaks.
Sadly had to break my streak last week due to an ear infection that, sadly, I'm still not quite over. In fact my hearing is borked, everything sounds out of tune, almost chipmunk-y. Hopefully that'll sort itself out soon. Anyway, made a simple 90s thumpin' beat to get through the murk in my middle ear.
