Bring on the aliens.

Tonight’s loop started off as your typical meat-and-potatoes-brushes-on-snare-write-some-folky-or-cheesy-funky-shit on top style beat:

I quickly became bored with it. Does the world really need another folky/cheesy funk beat? I’ve already given you about 10 of them.

I started tweaking the mix with various Logic plug-ins and then I finally stumbled on this little gem:

the wtf? filter
the wtf? filter

They call it the “Spectral Gate” but that name sort of creeps me out. It makes me feel like I should throw on some Nike high tops and wait for aliens to show up. I prefer calling it the “wtf? filter”. Perhaps Logic will consider this name change for the 9.0 release?

Loop #30

Bring on the aliens. And listen to this while you wait.
