What I do when I’ve got a few hours free

Today I purchased Komplete 9 from Native Instruments. I’ve been learning how to do synthesis, and I’m starting to get a handle on how to do pretty basic sounds, and while I’m never going to be a legendary sound designer, I’ve got the idea on how to take an existing sound and modify it to suit my needs. Or in the case of Komplete, I’ve got something near 12,000 sounds and 120GB of samples to get me through.

Anywho, just putzing around with some vocal slicing and I had this short ditty going – Ballot Box Confessional. Not a bad start, and not bad for only 4 layers (drums, synth, sliced vocals, and guitar). I’ve learned you don’t have to have a million things going to make good music (and that it takes a hell of a lot of mixing skill to manage everything).

Just :55 of playing around. Hope you enjoy. Probably will never finish it, like the hundreds of other tracks I’ve started but never completed.
