This week saw my efforts channeled equally (and oddly) to both playing a Pinscape show and - the following day - running live sound for Showgirls: The Musical at a local theater. Very different events - and rather strange, in their own rights - but each a fine addition to my musical resume.
So what did I come up with for inspiration in these hasty studio sessions for the ever-present weekly song? Some somber reflection, by way of:
Phonec's 'Harbors' preset processed by the built-in Cubase 'DaTube' saturator effect, followed by the ValhallaRoom reverb
A layering of both regular vocals and a second copy passed through the TAL-Vocoder 2, with its internal carrier controlled by MIDI notes and the synth set to about 35% portamento.
Key equipment/software used for production:
- Boscomac Air Piano Reaktor instrument
- Psychic Modulation Phonec synth plug-in
- TAL-Vocoder 2 effect plug-in
- Steinberg Retrologue synth plug-in
- ValhallaDSP ValhallaRoom effect plug-in
Key: G Major
Time Signature: 4/4
