'Prefreak2' - New Original Music - Yesterday's Idea, Slowly Becoming Less Garbled - Electronic/Instrumental + Walkthrough
I spent a little time with yesterday's
garbled, not particularly cohesive idea, and I think there has been some progress, though it's still not even close. I left all the same instruments (at least initially), but deleted everything except the drum parts. The guitar in Track 1 now plays a new lines: Ebmaj7, Cmin7, Bbmin, Bbmaj, then repeat. This is a lot more interesting, and I think it's a better direction to go in, though there need to be a lot of other layers. Track 2 is a new bass, though still a ROLI instrument, which provides the distorted subby bass line. I need to tweak what it actually plays, as some parts are definitely off, as I didn't account for the portamento effect, so I'll spend some time with that. The drums are cool still, but I'm thinking of removing the original 606 kit entirely, and using the world Portal effected patterns, with some other drum kit, as the 606 is just such a thin, fake sound. Tracks 7 and 8 were both used in yesterday's version, and here now reflect the new progression, playing a much simpler line, mostly just accenting the changes. Finally we have a new addition, Track 9, which is a Vital synth, that plays just sort of an ambient single note thing. It's a little load now, but I think when dropped in volume and effected a bit more, it'll be a cool backdrop. Overall, better, but not even close to where I think this could be, so we'll see what happens next!
