Caustic Song file (optional):
Ever since first purchasing the single '5am', and spotting there was also an acapella version available, I've fancied having a go at making my own Caustic remix of this song. I've since discovered all the individual stems were made available over a year ago, for a (long-since finished) remix competitions (Stems here). Despite the fact that there are already hundreds of remixes for that competition, I thought I'd amuse myself by having a go at my own version!
This track consists of 3 Beatboxes, a Subsynth sub-bass, 2 Modular basses, a Subsynth Melody, Padsynth Chords and a couple of Modular busses for additional effects, along with the original songs vocals, chopped up into 8-bar segments in PCMSynth.
One technique I discovered whilst making this, was automating the wet value of a stereo ping-pong delay on vocals (as a spike, in various places) in order to highlight individual words throughout the song with a bouncing echo effect, which seemed to work quite nicely!
Any comments welcome
