So um... TB-303. You should've figured that out already.

Anyway, this is one of my most technical songs yet, because it's the first where I utilized outboard gear. Here's the story:

I found an old bass guitar amplifier (which I was using as a subwoofer) and an old tape deck in the basement. I said "YAY TOYZ" and brought them up to my room. From there, I made a 303 track in FL, and sent it out to the bass guitar amplifier. I then routed that to the tape deck, which was set on record.

I found that I could, through tweaking the EQ and volume knobs on both the amplifier and the tape deck, change the timbre of the 303. So, I laid out some basic rhythm tracks, sampled from a 909, then run through the Bass Amp for distortion, and recorded my acid line over it. It's tweaked through both hardware and software. Please don't mind the high pitched sounds in the end, I EQed to minimize them, but it was because I forgot to turn down the treble before I turned down the mids, and it accidentally tape-squealed a bit :S

After I recorded it, I bounced it to wav and put it into my project, aligning it with the rhythms through careful editing. I then did a bit of mixing touches such as compression and then I was good to go. It was fun :D

And it's pretty good too IMO. Enjoy! :D

303

It's nice to see some acid on NG. Why not throw in an 808 just for fun?
