The past couple weeks have been pretty exciting when it comes to Nerve War. Sounds discovered, tracks completed, oh my! Below are a few samples of some things I've been working on and playing with. I've got a lot more in the works too, but I gotta save some surprises for the album release, after all ;)

Track 01

This first track starts out with an arpeggiated bass line generated by the Arturia SEM V, which is an emulator for the Oberheim SEM. Then comes in a light an airy medoly courtesy of the free VST Synth1. And lastly, on top of everything, is an arpeggiated lead from the Arturia JUP-8VJupiter-8 emulator. Overall this track is coming along nicely and will definitely be making an appearance on the upcoming album :)

LISTEN:

This next one is a noisy as hell experimentation using the free VST TyrellN6 from U-HE. Not sure if this one will go anywhere, but I'm definitely keeping it in my back pocket.

LISTEN:

Lastly is a track that's giving me a bit of problem with synchronization settings (which you will likely hear). the bass line is generated with the Arturia MINI V filtered through the D16 Devastor. Towards the end Prophet V makes an appearance. Overall I'm digging the vibe of this one, I just need to figure out the sync issue (I'm sure it's just operator errorrrrrr, drrrr).

Hooo boy did I have a good time this evening with a few plugins I picked up from D16 Group. I started out with a pretty simple bass rhythm using the Phoscyon, which is an emulator of the classic Roland TB-303. For the drums, I also picked up D16's sub-crushing PunchBox. I almost can't believe how deep the PunchBox's bass drum generator can sound without turning to mush. In this particular instance it's also layered in with my good old standby BFD. There's also a little bit of space phasing thrown in to add to the insanity, via Fazortan. All in all I'm quite pleased with my purchase after drooling over these D16 plugins, and I know already I'll be utilizing the holy living shit out of them >:)
