Just completed phase 2. Took out a few kicks here and there, side chained one of the hat patterns to an off beat hat to de-clutter a little and reduced the attack on the whole drum bus with a transient shaper. Chopped one sample. Will have phase three up by Sunday.
so there is already a lotta bass in the sample.. I wanna keep that.. it will come out better in the final mix.
so as a bass solution I chose a low to mid bass that fits the melancholy vibe and played a melody with it.. it comes in halfway.
also started the whole drumbeat a couple of milliseconds later so it swings better with the melodies.
Here is stage 3...
bassguitar and eguitar added.And i have repitched some samples.
Hmmm i am not very happy... Hope i can make something good until next week. I have a recording of the first drums on my sp. Sound is much more punchy. But not well mixed... Hope i can reproduce that somehow...
