Song of the Week: February 28 – “Curve”

This week I had a video project to produce for one of my graduate courses at school. Naturally, this seemed like a good opportunity to come up with a new tune to use as a soundbed for the project. Check it below (the new tune comes in at around 4:00 minutes). The video also features a tune I posted a few weeks back as the intro and credits.

A few new plugs I haven’t really used before: the Rob Papen RG Muted CM rhythm guitar plugin intros the piece with a funky little delayed guitar lick. Also featured is a cool little Reaktor plugin called Aerobic, which is providing a pretty cool little drum machine track. Also pulled out the trusty ‘ol LinPlug Alpha CM for a cheesy organ pad to flesh out the middle section.
