Fooling around on a chilly Toronto morning

Set myself a 2 hour time limit to create a new track. 

I gave myself a bit of a head start with the "Back To Dub Roots" sample project. The rest was played in on Maschine Studio, and my tiny CME xKey travelling keyboard. Track was mastered on-line with LANDR. Despite having used Bigwig for a number of months now, getting back to Maschine was a breeze thanks to the workflow of Machine Studio.

Finally had some time to work on this today after an insane week. Here is the second cut of my end of evening remix of Hypnotize (Wellenrausch) #SoundCloud #BitWig #Traktor #Remix

Third draft. This time remastered by the team at Sage Audio. It's amazing the difference proper mastering makes.

Second pass of my remix of Plumb's beautiful song Cut.

This is tough material to work with, and it was particularly challenging to respect both the content and the spirit of the song. I started by using Traktor to cleanly break apart the original song, then used Bitwig studio to re-arrange the parts (the first pass of which was triggered by a Launchpad S session). I then added new elements (piano, strings, etc. played in from a Novation Impulse) leveraging both Bitwig's stock instruments and some Kontakt 5 sounds. Needs more work still ... but was a fun project to work on, and (the original at least) is a beautiful piece of music to work with.

Experimental remix of Manvel Ter-Pogosyan's Fallen In Too Deep using Traktor DJ on the iPad to create the core remix (essentially folding parts of the song on itself) and then Logic Pro X to add the additional string voices in order to create a more cinematic feel. Still a work in progress.
