    I'd always like the finer details, ok to request here or pm? Is this in Reason? How did you crispify without sounding compressed??

    So glad to see you back, if it is indeed the same comrade:wink:

    Hello good friends ! :bow:
    Thanks for listening & your kind words goes to :bow: :
    @Mynock @Lois Lane @DrumHead @No Avenger @KungPaoFist :)
    ^
    Track created in Logic Pro X :bow: :
    Here are some screenshots of the project :
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    ^ The main instrument used on this project is Modular Icons,for the bass i've used N.I Prism (the full version)
    [​IMG]
    ^ midi parts of section A (until the middle of the track)
    [​IMG]
    ^ midi parts of section B (after the crash cymbal & when the bass starts)
    [​IMG]
    ^Drums are one shots from the Komplete Library
    Played/recorded all parts on a Komplete Kontrol A49 :bow: :
    [​IMG]
    On the master bus i've used as you can see on the first pic Fabfilter Pro q3 -> Saturn (instead of compression using just a bit of saturation in clean Tube mode/using 3 different split bands -> Fabfilter Pro L2 :bow:
    Mixing/mastering is nothing really special & was done using a pair of Audio - Technica ATH-M50x's :
    [​IMG]
    ^ Be well everyone,best wishes once again & lots of creativity ! spyfx :bow:
    Edit : i forgot to add that the reverb is the Valhalla Shimmer.

    Thanks for the descrption! Do you find your settings in L2 to vary a lot from session to session including different genres or do they remain relatively similar?

    Another great track. I've been in hospital with the mother of mouth\throat infections which has not been much fun, but this track has really cheered me up, so thank you.
    Its also nice to see some shots of the project, which give a glimpse into how you work.
    Look forward to more in the future

    ^ Hello @The Tone Gnome :bow:,i'm sorry to hear you're in the hospital....wishing You a speedy recovery :wink::wink::wink:
    Thank you for listening & i'm glad this track cheered you up :bow:
    * i have left you a pm some time ago about my experience with the Studiologic Sl88 Grand & some other controllers,so check your inbox,if you haven't already,Have a Great Day ! :wink::bow:
    ^ Thank you for listening @mrpsanter ! :wink:,Have a Great Day ! :bow:
    ^Thank you @Recoil ! :wink::keys::keys::keys::keys::keys::keys::keys::keys:,Have a Great Day !:phunk:
    ^ @KungPaoFist :bow: : i use the Fabfilter L2 a lot,
    my 2 favorite modes/styles are the "Modern" for electronica & "Transparent" for more traditional film/orchestral/cinematic projects :keys:
    (i also experiment sometimes with the other 'styles/modes" depending on the track (like Hiphop,D&b)
    I like that it has the intergrated LUFS metering system built in.
    When i export my projects i use the Oversampling on 32x(Very Cpu Intensive) or 16x(Cpu Intensive)
    What varies from project to project is the settings for the attack & release time (& the transients/release feature)
    ^ I hope the above info helps you a bit :wink: & Have a Great Day ! :bow:

    If you want a non condescendient opinion, here´s mine. I don´t hear any significant melody, no tension-resolution, no harmony, no interesting changes, no emotion. It just begins and end without nothing really happening leaving me completely empty of feeling. Ok, sounds very good but music is not just a good mastering. I´ve heard much better things from you my friend.

    and i like this track most of of him...its bout groove... counterpoint
    ---
    fck that most of the time its just plain....the dirty melody inbetween is what 4*4 makes special...no fckn edm boy scout melodys

    using less and at right moment is much more difficult cause you cant hide plain drumset and shit groove

    Shure I must hear it again to see if I can find what you call "counterpoint". And by the way the melody that´s missing here is not that fckn edm boy scout that seemingly is the only one you know by now. Cheers.

    Spy has a beauty in simplicity in these kind of downtempo tracks that fill the sonic space using a razor sharp mix skill and sound palet. Kind of a Japanese concept also which I assume comes from the LIttle Tokyo part of Greece, kidding I'm sure many cultures have something similar. Anyway I'm removing myself from his testicles now:wink:

    The remix sounds more score oriented which is cool, but mix1 is something I would jog/ride to:wink:

    Imho it´s a much better piece of music. Sometimes an open mind can make miracles when faced to a hard critic. I can say no more. Cheers to all.
