Terminal

My first track in quite a while. :/ This one is a bit of a different from my usual stuff (although I tend to say that a lot nowadays… Hmm…). Not quite sure why I had such a long hiatus, but hopefully this track spells the end of it. We’ll see.

I made use of some of the samples that my friends at ModPlug Central gave me for a wedding present, as well as mutilating some of my other sample libraries.

Twelve Nineteen

This one’s actually been sitting on my computer for a month or so now — I just haven’t been able to render it to wave, because my system just wasn’t fast enough. Today, though, I got a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM, and everything just purrs along, barely touching the processor. Very Happy

Anyway, about the music itself. This piece is basically me having fun with Kontakt — each of the eight instruments has fairly complex insert effect chains, a couple of send effects, and a couple of modulated group inserts, too. Smile Basically, lots of effects, for some nice sound degradation.

Because I’m still not a fan of OpenMPT’s automation handling, I managed to find a nice little workaround, that I used on a couple of instruments: I modulate various effects using the MIDI volume. This means that working with the modulation is much more immediate, and it also means that I can modulate a couple of different effects simultaneously completely independently.

The piece is, hopefully, quite fun to listen to — it was definitely fun to write. Let me know what you think!
