A gentle groove, a smooth and soothing Beatscape.
Nothing but drum and beat apps were used today. I began in iMaschine 2 using drums in three of the parts, I also had a chordal part but I abandoned that halfway through, as it became more and more obvious that it got in the way of the story. I exported the parts separately and loaded them into Auria for arrangement. Next I loaded a Diode-108 file which I had in my ‘beats’ folder and an iSpark file (which I may have used previously). They were all in related bpms and on listening through my beats folder these two stood out as ones that would fit.
Arrange arrange, mix mix and Bob’s your Uncle.

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.

A Delicate Irritation:
Gadget can be used not only for beat driven EDM stuff but for just about anything that you can imagine. Here I am imagining a delicate melancholy; peaceful but with a darkness, if not looming, at least on the horizon. Perhaps a flower with just the first hint of decay.
Gadget fed into Dedalus, then into TwistedWave, then into Auria for mixing.

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.
