Okay, I decided to work through my recent hump/lack of inspiration, not sure whether that was a good idea but...I really liked the funky, free feeling in Danseb's 'ToBassFor' tune (http://www.singlecellsoftware.com/node/1700)
I thought I'd try and write some bumpy, skippy house beats...
..and I tried to...
..but somehow just wrote another acid track
This is a pre-mix with effects in place of automation but I like the overall sound, I think the levels, balance and sounds feel pretty good.
Whether the track itself is actually any good is a completely different matter. As always it's really linear but with a couple of little experiments - muliple Basslines running in sequence to create a polyphonic Bassline effect and a custom Beatbox with 5 snares.
Oh yeah, and I experimented a bit with breaks, using some 1 bar breaks between 4 or 8 bar patterns and then having some 1 bar drops within a 4 or 8 bar pattern.
4 racks only. Ironic as Rej is just about to give us 14 to play with and I seem to be adopting a reductionist approach.
I'll post the .caustic file too later.
