Just added a new electronica track to soundcloud. add9 is the chord returned to at each phrase. Yea, so maybe I’m not great at coming up with names… :)

[Electro House] Caustik – Synapse (Original Mix)

without comments

I’ve produced a new Electro House track titled “Synapse” — this was put together using Ableton, original melodies, and a few of my new synth and compressor toys.

[Electronica] Caustik – Juice Box (Original Mix)

without comments

This one is pretty much just ear candy, busy with synths and a very pop/classic 4 chord progression.

CHIP.XM (PPU Remix)

with 4 comments

There’s this old .XM file that came along with a DOS demo called ascii4everagain, many years ago.

Always loved the demo, thought the music was friggin sweet.

Tonight I remixed the track from it’s old DOS-XM sound to more of a relaxed Electronica version.

Electro House Track: "EH1"

without comments

Finally got around to sitting down and producing an electro house track. The subjective components are typical to my flavor — deep rolling saw-based bassline, heavy kick, slapped snare, long builds leveraging primarily fifths (5 semitones), etc. The coolest part, though, is that my favorite sound effect in the world — the Wall-E voice — is used multiple times in the track :) :)

If you get a chance to listen, let me know what you think!

Electronica Track: "Jaunt"

without comments

Jaunt

Here’s my latest attempt at a completed electronica track. This one is named in honor of a nice weekend of snowboarding.It’s always nice to mark a vacation by creating a custom track or DJ mix, so in the future when listening to it, you are reminded of all the fun you had on the trip. This one was put together using some very nice instrument loops by Jody Wisternoff, who is one of my favorite producers.

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!
