Weekly Music Project - Song #40

October 6, 2014

So, summer is done. And along with it goes my ambition to document these songs in excruciating detail and prose. We're in the final stretch of the 2014 song-a-week project, so how about we simplify things a bit and focus on one or two techniques or sounds from which I got the most value while producing each of them?

This week - the second official week of autumn - I got some serious mileage out of the following:

A Reaktor Prism preset called 'Amiga Wobble' for the main melodic passage, with some subtle automation of its filter parameters throughout the track.

Chopped up segments of BreakTweaker-generated microedits, arranged on 3 individually-panned channels and routed to a group channel with additional filtering and delay processing.

Key equipment/software used for production:

- Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol, Reaktor Prism preset
- Audio Damage Phosphor synth plug-in
- Psychic Modulation Phonec synth plug-in
- iZotope BreakTweaker drum plug-in
- Native Instruments Maschine Studio
- ValhallaDSP ValhallaRoom effect plug-in

Key: C# Major
BPM: 76
Time Signature: 4/4
