Abstractions:

An Abstract Beatscape.

iMPC Pro for the drums recorded with Dedalus. I haven’t used iMPC Pro much and it seemed to glitch occasionally so I’m not sure if I’ll used it much. It’s got some great sounds tho.

It was a slow and almost abstract sounding beat, so I added two abstract sounding files I had prepared earlier: one from Borderlands Granular, and one from iDensity.

Video:

People have asked about the videos so I’ll start leaving notes about those too.

I made a series of pics in PicFrame, loaded those along with the song file into Pinnacle Studio (which is my main video app). Then it was just a case of arranging, adding some choice transitions here and there, adding the titles etc, and bob’s your proverbial.

Awaiting: Named for my lovely wife, confident, best friend, and muse Lene. Who is away for a few days.

A barebones Beatscape.

My first attempt at loading my own samples into a drum machine. This is Patterning, which I recently bought and have not yet fully explored. I trawled my files in Audioshare (recorded over the last 6 or 7 months), looking for bits to trim out. I loaded 15 or so into Patterning, built a drum kit, made a pattern, and jammed that into Audioshare.

Fun Fun Fun.

I’m looking forward to trying this with other apps.

PS All references to the soundtrack of Dead Man where purely accidental (Though I do love and recommend that).

What Winter Has Left Me:

A Beatscape with a gentle groove and some spoken word.

iDensity with AUFX:Dub, AUFX:Space, and Dedalus for the drone/soudscape.

Patterning for the drums. Two tracks using different kits, layered and panned.

iFretless Bass for the baseline.

I read a poem/lyrics straight into the iPad mike, with a few favourite quotes. For the vocals.

It felt great to being playing bass again. Must do more of that.

Tell Me That You Love Me:

Dronescape.

A simple piece that is a live take on one patch of one synth. Slight movements of just three knobs gave all this variation. I love simple tracks like this.

Addictive Synth jammed into Audioshare.
