Beatober2021 #23 – Ghost Mirage

Just something a little jazzy, a little funky… The track started out life back in August at my sister’s house while visiting, and was a subset of a jam session that I did with my brother in law. Sadly, no guitar or other instrument takes were had, so I had to add in some electricContinue reading “Beatober2021 #23 – Ghost Mirage”

Beatober2021 #22 – Bitter Sweet Symphony

This was initially just testing out my reconfigured setup… but figured I’d run with it. This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the configuration I am working on for getting multiple tracks together, just that I was getting some more concepts together 😀 Nothing technically I haven’t done before, but this is all tracks that I playedContinue reading “Beatober2021 #22 – Bitter Sweet Symphony”

Beatober2021 #21 – Mr. Big

Yeah! Finally getting a vision of some sounds/ideas to put together into a big ol’ mix and mash of tracks. I have been so focussed on trying to just get a track done, or only having a half hour that I kind of just forgot about my original goal of putting a set of tracksContinue reading “Beatober2021 #21 – Mr. Big”

Beatober2021 #20 – Witching Hour

Yesterday I got myself some credits on NeuralBlender… and actually started buying some art… whaaaaat. Decided to spend some time today trying to think about a way to use the Morphagene as a sample player of some sort… and got a couple samples going… didn’t go for anything crazy or off the rails… but theyContinue reading “Beatober2021 #20 – Witching Hour”

Beatober2021 #19 – A Night With Friends

Well… here it is for today The track gave me some problems. Mostly Total Recall… I just realized that it triggers or rather changes parameters on the down event of a clock or gate… and Pam’s was sending a gate for 50% of a beat, meaning that the change was happening on 1.3 instead ofContinue reading “Beatober2021 #19 – A Night With Friends”

Beatober2021 #18 – Late Night Drifters

Yah… sometimes we just need to simplify! Could’ve made this into a longer track, but yeah… I think keeping it short and simple definitely kept it moving and interesting. At least I feel like I got more out of it than I would have otherwise trying to layer a ton of sounds in and thenContinue reading “Beatober2021 #18 – Late Night Drifters”

Beatober2021 #17 – Looking for Redemption

This track was fun, but I also had a lot more time today to be picky with sound selection, make some various sections, and then add in eurorack for some extra spice. This track started from the much cleaner track recorded on soundcloud that I did pretty much everything on the MPC, and then justContinue reading “Beatober2021 #17 – Looking for Redemption”

Beatober2021 #16 – Simple Life

Decided to keep it simple today… really simple. What all is going on? The picture comes from Neural Blender again… still having fun with this, I still need to buy some credits and go to town here. Even if the images are not necessarily directly useful, it’s definitely got some inspiring and striking looks toContinue reading “Beatober2021 #16 – Simple Life”

Beatober2021 #15 – Funk Your Style

Okay… today felt pretty good… but did like… five… maybe six takes… was getting a bit of a jam going and then would make a mistake… this take came together pretty well though. This is my pretty traditional setup I’ve been going for lately, but with the SP 202 and SP 303 added to theContinue reading “Beatober2021 #15 – Funk Your Style”

Beatober2021 #14 – Keep Us Too

Still in a kind of meh… for making music day… but hey… still having fun and got a chance to mess with Neural Blender some more. So that’s nice 😀 As for the track… well I tried to use some automation on Morphagene… to limited success… and just ended up dumping the drums and VoxContinue reading “Beatober2021 #14 – Keep Us Too”
