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.

Strings At 34,000 feet (composed on an iPad on the plane home from London) ... Trying out the new G+ share from Soundcloud
During a recent flight back from the UK to Toronto, I had a chance to play with the latest version of Garage Band on my iPad. The new strings functionality is pretty impressive, although playing the cello by stroking the screen caused more than a few stares. This track was completed in about 2 hours. Leaving lots of time for dinner, a couple of TV shows and a nap :-) What a fun way to pass the time at 33,000 feet.

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.

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

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.
