Signals from the Heavens

Recommended Posts

I decided to try something new, which is to make a song based on loops, leaning heavily on pitch-shifting tools and the Textured Guitars and Action Drums loop packs from the RMX Sampler Pack by Nine Volt Audio. I also used the SCVA Electronic Drum Kit to add some accents.

This already sounds good as is, but I plan to develop this track more with composed synth instruments. Also, suggestions are welcome.

I dig the groove, and that second bass tone that comes in, very cool. The perc is all over the place, in a very good way.  Hope you are thinking about some lyrics?

That was a very engaging listen. 

cheers,

Haha, I am not a very good vocalist. It's all VSTi's for me!

And also, I have finished layering instruments over this! 

Instruments used:

  • Electronic Drumkit from Roland SCVA
  • Pure from Sektor
  • Modular Granular Piano from LABS
  • Kontakt Factory Violin Section
  • VSCO 2 CE Violin Ensemble
  • Modified Jazzy Guitar from Strum Session 2
  • XLerate from AAS Angelicals
  • Drops of Wisdom (Arp) from AAS Starlight
  • Asto from AAS Frontier

Lovely! Great energetic groove and flow. My ears detect a couple of major/minor chord collisions, but nothing too serious.

Great work!

I'm listening through headphones while loitering at Starbucks this morning.
You could go in a whole lot of directions with that energetic background track including vocal. I like your
choice of pad type instruments which seems to  be in direct contrast to the background.

My only suggestion is to bring up the volume of the instruments on top and give them more separation.
Sounds like everything is in the middle to me.

Great tune LadyFuzztail. Lots of energy and movement, with percussion filling in many sonic gaps. I enjoyed that!
