This might be cheating but I did technically record this in Reason.



Hardware instruments used: Behringer TD-3, Roland TB-3, Roland JV-2080, Roland Alpha Juno-1, Korg Electribe ER-1 (sequencer only), Korg Volca Beats, Waldorf Blofeld Module, E-MU ESI-2000, E-MU Proteus/1, Kawai K1r.
Hardware effects built-in reverb on my Behringer UB222FX mixer, Boss DD-7 Delay, Digitech MSP4, Zoom Studio 1204, Rat 2, Alesis 3630, and some generic analog delay pedal...

This take is much better! I changed the lead and the secondary acid line and the mix is less crowded now...

Cool. I liked the first 2 minutes the most. After that things got a bit too messy for me for my taste, like there were too much stuff going on at once.

When working live it might take multiple takes to get it just right... I'm gonna play with it some tomorrow...

I had messed up when recording as I had the wrong pattern selected on my TD-3... so I had to re-record the track. This one is more minimal than my last track though...

Yesterday I had accidentally grabbed the tune knob which ruined that take... and today I use the wrong pattern entirely... lol

The sound is bangin and what it should be. The thing as a whole is lacking something.

Intermissions/drops/more subtraction? Maybe tell a story?

It's supposed to be minimal... it's done live... and I'm not sure on which track you meant with what you said... I happen to like minimal techno so eh...

You ever hear the first acid track "Acid Trax" by Phuture, it's even more minimal than this. Just a single 303 and a drum machine.

Sorry I meant the second one. Intermissions/drops/ and subtractions in arrangement are just movement, ways to shift the listener's focus and achieve better expressiveness without introducing new instruments, but through their timed absence. Bad advice?

And I believe that "how" music was made should be of no concern to the listener. If I'm not sure if the music is good or not, I just close my eyes and BAM! Tash Sultana is mediocre at best.

If my comments are annoying, I would appreciate you taking revenge on my track that I posted ;)

But there are "Intermissions/drops/ and subtractions" I only have so many hands you know... lol

Adding more sounds would have detracted from this track in my opinion... it's just a straight up no nonsense acid techno track...
