6 years in the making!!!! Kick ass electronic tune :) new
      #68751 - 03/01/05 01:02 AM
I know sometimes it takes me a while to be happy with a tune but this is getting silly. I've been working on this since autumn '98. I dropped the idea after a while but kept trying to finish it without any joy or success. Recently i've made nothing that i thought had any dancefloor potential but i think this one is OK. Any comments and feedback are welcome - it still probably needs a few mix tweaks.

I dedicate it to those who stays up all night

Good track, although after 6 years it should be.

The vocal sample seems a bit loud to me, apart from that, liked it.

Would like to hear more, before 2011?

I can't remember TBH - it's about 6 yrs since i sampled it - something from an old western - i think.

Anyway....

Thanks to everyone who gave great feedback on the last incarnation of this tune. I've reworked the beats and thrown the original lead line back in - coz some people found the last version too minimal. I'm done with this tune.

Here it is, listen & enjoy.

Your track is wicked!!! Love the drums and the reverb is fasntastic - where did you get it from outboard or fx?

The track has a really good energy to it would be really interested to hear what you used to make it with.

I didn't think the vox sample was too loud at all if anytyhing i struggled to hear it

Cheers.

The reverb is just a tiny amount of TC Native plugin reverb strapped across the whole mix (except the drums - coz they already have room reverb from the recording). Originally I made the tune using a Novation Bass Station, Yamaha SU10 sampler and a cheap Zoom fx rack all MIDI sequenced by my Atari 1040 ST! (ah those were the days - when i made more music and knew less about the workings of PCs.)

This rewroked version basically resampled lots of bits of the old version (like the drums and bass) but then i added new synths and effects using Acid 5. Main synths are NI Pro 53 and Arturia Moog. The dropping sound was created by moving the loop point on a drum sample in the SU10.



thanks again

MM
