Audio, Soundscape, Tracks 1 Comment

Into The Long Dusk:

I guess it’s a Soundscape; there is some guitar and some bass, but I still think they exist within the Soundscape rather than making it something else. Any thoughts?

Today I began with iPulseret, a great granular app; but as I built up elements around that beginning, the whole thing moved in another direction and I eventually had to remove the initial framework. It’s funny how it sometimes works that way.

I used a guitar file from an abandoned project recorded with ToneStack, then I added two Soundscaper tracks and two CubeSynth tracks, and finally I added a sparse bassline with iFretless. It was a mess.

But when I removed the iPulseret tracks (thanks to some great advice from my amazing wife Lene) the whole thing suddenly swam into focus, and just needed a few tweaks to finish off.

I still love those IPulseret tracks by the way, maybe I’ll start with them again tomorrow and see what happens.

    Funny how song evolution can go sometimes…
    Thanks again for the tracks, description, and the musings.
    Helps me remember…
    Instead of seeing one song with 8 tracks and too many ingredients that aren’t working well together (wallowing in the mud or worse tossing the whole thing). See 8 new seeds/songs to choose from and pursue.
    Carry on,
    JB
