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 :)
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.
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 :)
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 :)
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.
This track was made only with the default sounds of the PO-33. Even though it’s a slow-sounding track, its BPM is actually 140. It’s not my first attempt to create such a track, but this one finally came out… well… OK. It’s little weird, hence the name.
