Drunken Stupor Mix

with 2 comments

Night of heavy drinking, home at 3am with too much caffeine left from the jack and coke’s. This is the result. Started it out with the song that got me into electronic music to begin with, so many years ago now ..

Original Track – "Apollo"

without comments

For my birthday, two of the greatest human beings to grace this planet combined to get me some Pro-Tools gear. This gear came with some really great plugins, and they also work as VSTi instruments. This means that while I ramp up to Pro-Tools, I can use the plugins in an environment I’m already proficient with.

This evening while on my way home I heard a couple loops that inspired me to put together a track. So I put a track together using Ableton Live (with custom Operator instruments), AnalogFactory (VSTi), and some post-processing with Adobe Audition.

The track got named Apollo because apparently that is my Archetype. Also I believe Apollo was the god of Music? So at least that is nice.

apollo, god of music?

apollo, god of music?

Hope somebody finds this enjoyable, I think it turned out pretty nice.

Thx Rachel and bunnie!
