I heard sidechaining white noise to the kick, snares and hats "fills out the frequency range" or something like that? I tried it. I guess it sounds cool. White noise 0:21 to 0:44

Magical 8 bit synth plug in refuses to obey master pitch slider, so to automate that, I had to export what the synth was doing, pop it in a granulizer and turn off the plug-ins except for the limiter, to keep the sidechain going. It was going to be my bass, but it can only go up or down 2 semitones when you slide it, which don't fly with me.

Like the bonus beat at the end. Was gonna fade it out but hate fade outs. Swish.


I agree with the above comments, though their are really nice elements in both parts of this particular instrumental. Nice work on here.

Thanks, man

Yeah agreed, dat end part man! You could probably do a whole other beat out of it.

phosphorusprocedure responds:

Thanks, man. Yeah, it's possible... we'll see...

I love this for the groove at the end alone

Thanks, man. That part, I had these two hats, panned hard left and hard right. Whole track was sidechained to the kick and snare, so they going in and out a lot. I think I also automated the swing slider (so it'd go from 0 to 100 and back to 0 percent over the course of 4 bars) but I'm not sure if it did anything. Ran some funky sample through the granulizer, cranked it up like 3 octaves or whatever.

Same hat pattern as in the beat proper, but less busy.

This was very glitchy for Hip Hop and in no way is that a bad thing. Very odd but incredibly interesting in its design.

P.S That intro has some serious Bonobo vibes. Which means whatever you're doing, you're doing it right, keep up the good work.

phosphorusprocedure responds:

Thanks! Yeah, was listening to a lot of FlyLo and Eprom at the time, so I guess that was cropping up somewhere. The Bonobo comparison is surprising. I only heard his older (~2005) stuff, with the vibraphones and chill jazz samples, so I don't know what he sounds like now; I'll check it out...
