Suprisingly, my remix of France by LTM vs Must Rush turned out successful and ended up in “The Best of Tecnomind Music” compilation. I was requested to do that remix soon after the “Live While You Can / Meteor Ride” EP got signed.
New update of Make Noise 0-Coast Wavetable Pack for Serum is here! All links updated, in case anybody asks.
Thanks to latest Serum feature I was able to align the phases of all waveforms in a wavetable. This allows them to be modulated smoothly without artifacts, despite aperiodic form and general weirdness of some waveforms recorded. Individual waveforms may no longer be exactly the same as you could see on the oscilloscope, but nonetheless they sound the same and resemble the feel of original semi-modular synth.
What can one do with this semi-modular contraption? Nah, not the music. Sample the hell out of it!
This new wavetable pack explores a variety of controls and timbres 0-Coast has to offer. Some of them are simple knob sweeps of high quality, others feature aperiodic and overall bizarre shapes and sets. These are simple .wav files, so should work in other synths and programs, but were made using Serum. Enjoy!
Feel free to share the link as long as you feature me in the credits. This took quite a while to make, you know.
And yes, I’m going to make a track with all these sometime this year.
“My Little Room” was originally made some years ago as a counterpart to Bliss. It’s the odd one, though, and I can’t even think of many labels that could be potentially interested in it. So I give it away for free. Luckily it already gathered great opinions from listeners, now you can enjoy it too! 🙂
So – yes. I own Advance 49 keyboard with VIP preset browser for a year and a half now. Why I didn’t write about it earlier? Well, because goddamn thing didn’t want to work.
Since now extended versions of tracks are on Youtube, there’s a good point to discuss how “Starvation” was made.
I had a simple idea in mind – a straightforward trance tune with african theme. This involves, obvioulsy, polyrthytmic djembe drums, but also harmonies. Some grooves were played by hand using different instruments, such as Ableton stock rack and Big Bang Cinematic Percussion, other loops were found on the Internet. As to harmonies, I googled some “african music”, understood correctly or not, and tried various chord progressions until it worked.
