Here are my track notes. This has been my favourite set of samples to work with and I think I could have a few more tracks featuring these heavily.
I have been putting on a lot of chilled out hip hop recently in my class and wanted to make something in that vein. @hightowersdeepwells’s guitar part instantly spoke out to me. I warped it in Ableton and added nothing to it… it was just about perfect as it was.
The drums are courtesy of @jasonw22. I played with the pitch and doubled some sounds for fuller sounds.
The aaahs were repitched, reversed, reverbed, and reversed back with more reverb. I also added delay. @NonSangfroid provided these.
The plucky sound is a note from the guitar line pitched down and heavily filtered. I tried to use the sample without plopping it into sampler but couldn’t get the timing right so ended up playing it in sampler anyway. Bit of reverb and delay added.
The organ sound was the guitar again, heavily modulated and filtered with a longish attack on the envelope settings
The grungy background noise was filtered and volume cut massively. This came from @ermina. I loved this sample as there were plenty of peaks and troughs in the dynamics of it that helped it sit nicely in the track
Vinyl distortion applied to master track.
I got halfway through the track and was thinking where to take it. I decided I could reverse it to represent the the day/night light balance of the equinox.
Great set of samples here, and I will be revisiting them as there were a number I still want to use (perhaps in the next solstice project).
EDIT: added more accurate info and credit (fixed the laptop, yay).
