I’m still enjoying making downtempo slow EDM type things, I do enjoy making a beat. Also I sometimes still visit apps other than Gadget and iMaschine 🙂
Today I had fun with iKaosillator which I haven’t visited in a while.
PS if you would like to check out more in this series here is a YouTube playlist of Figure and iKaosillator jams:

The Logician’s Locket Franchise:
Beats and other sounds at 120 bpm, it must be some sort of EDM 🙂
Step One: Make some music in Gadget.
Step Two: Flavour it with AudioShare, ApeFilter, Dedalus, and DubFilter.
Step Three: Place all the ingredients into the Auria mixing bowl and whisk carefully.
Step Four: Add some vocals that have been steeped in Borderlands Ganular.
Step Five: Arrange artfully on the plate and season to taste with AUFX:PeakQ.

Straining Gnats With A Barbed Wire Canoe:
Another beat driven Gadget track again using Bilbao and Abu Dhabi to trigger samples, some my own and some built in. PPG Phonem gets it’s first outing today as one of those samples and my voice is hidden in there as well.
I find it a fun track, I hope you do to.

Yes it’s short, minimal, and soothing. It’s sweet and gentle; like a fine wine or the memory of favourite old times, like a dream during a nap on a sunny afternoon, like a sip of Bailey’s. Like a quiet smile.
All the sounds here were sampled from AnalogKit in AudioShare then loaded into Bilbao in Gadget via Dropbox; so expect to hear them again in other situations. The final song was exported to AudioShare and treated with AUFX:Dub.
May your day be simple and sweet.

Silent Sound – featuring Trudi McBoody:
Another Gadget foray into the land of beats and bass, this time with a little spoken word thrown in thanks to the ever fictional Trudi McBoody.
Most sounds were made in Gadget, though today I used iFretless Bass as a midi controller to record the second bass line. I added a little AUFX:Dub in AudioShare before I decided to try that second bass, so I exported just that track and used Auria to mix the two parts together.
Then I felt it needed some words so I called in Trudi. In the form of iSpeech TTS and TwistedWave.
