Etude003: Presets Only!

January 10, 2009 4:42 PM

A short minimal-housey thing made exclusively with sound presets.

So, after being frustrated that Etude002 took ages just to cut and prep the field recordings, I decided that my project for Etude 003 was to just take sounds from Ableton Live's presets and go from there. The results weren't nearly as hokey as I had expected. And by the way, the melodic line was played with my computer keyboard substituting as a MIDI controller, 'cause that's how I roll.

Oh, and you can see the rest of the Etude series here, if you're so inclined.

I like Etude003 very much. I played it again. I'll play it again later for sure. I'll follow the link to the series.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I re-listened to it through my laptop speakers and discovered that the whole thing sounds really flat and a bit odd without the bass. I haven't quite figured out how to balance a track so that it sounds good on "limited" speakers. Lots of compression, I guess.
