The newest track from The Prodigy’s upcoming album, “No Tourists” (out November 2nd), is so badass. I really love it.
I didn’t set out to create a Lo-fi kind of track, but after sampling a few sounds and playing around – it’s what came out. One of the most melodic tracks I ever created, and I like it (the few previous tracks weren’t so nice on the ears :)
All samples used are from the Viktor NV-1 online synth:
- The X-Files
- Moog triangle bass
- singade Sage Lead
In this track I finally realized how I can use filtering to make new sounds. So the only sample I used here (except for internal PO-33 sounds) is the “Pyro Chords” sound sample from the online preview of the Heisenberg synthesizer.
The track is very “electronic” and not so great melodically, but I enjoyed making it a lot and I took my time to enjoy the process.
The second single from the upcoming album “No Tourists” is a proper banger.
This one took a very long time, but not for a good reason. It’s not great overall and the movements at the end are very messy. I simply got stuck making it and wanted to finish.
For this one I used:
Additionally, for the first time, I used effects as part of the final recording. Specifically, I used the unison effects on the PO-33. I think they gave a nice twist to the music.
It took me very long to get this together. It’s not that there was a specific difficulty. I just had a block and wasn’t happy with whatever I was doing. The final result, however, I find quite pleasing :)
I was somewhat lazy with this one because I used the same patch as I did for my previous track, “Nordic Moon”. In addition, I used a sample of the “Dominator” sound from the online preview of the Heisenberg synthesizer.
It’s a relatively slow track (at least it starts slow), which I wanted to do after listening to G Jones – In Your Head. A very cool and hard-hitting “bass movement” track. So you can say it’s an inspiration :)
The Prodigy have released the first single from their next album, “No Tourists”. The album will be out November 2nd.
Needless to say, excitement level is high :)
For now, here’s the video for “Need Some1”:
In this track I include a sound that I created myself using the online Europa synthesizer. Here’s the patch I used to create the sound you hear in the background for the entire duration of the track. You can load it into the online synth and play around with it, which is really cool.
I really enjoyed creating the sound and I learned a lot, although I barely scratched the surface of sound creation.
The rest of the sounds are from this sample pack of ethnic instruments.
