So this was just another late night

Track 4, Drum Buss, Bass Boost
random session, which actually wound up being pretty cool. It's far from 'complete', but so far I like the general idea. I started with a ROLI bass synth, in Track 3, which plays the same basic progression throughout. Track 2 was next, which just provides some D octaves, for the first 3 bars, and a Bb octave on the 4th. Track 1 is from the 'EDM Attack' pack, and adds the line in Red below. We're in D minor, but there's a little dissonance here with each repetition, as it descends from A to F# to F natural. Track 4 is the drums, which use the CR-78 kit once again, with a pretty intense Thermal distortion on it. I also added the Ableton drum buss, pictured to the right here, to boost the low end, so the kick would be more obvious. The snares got a little lost with the EQing, so I added another snare in Track 8, using one of the 'electrified kits'. Tracks 5 and 6 are both ROLI instruments, which add the background noisey stuff, which I particularly like. Finally, we have Track 7, which adds some little single note stabs, with a heavy delay effect. Overall, a bit muddy, but a cool idea, and one I'm definitely going to work with. I think if I add a B section of some kind, it'll help break up the two sections, so we'll see where it goes!
