Description
This started as another attempt at something which it's not, by laying down two tracks each playing an Electronic Drum Beat loop (a different one each): they open the first 4 measures until the bass comes in. On this tune, I didn't want a simple, extended bass line so I used one Funky Muted Bass loop and modified it into the 5 or 6 variants you hear. The synth pad in the first half is Analog Pad with the Atmo Pad 3 preset, Stereo Chorus and Ambience AUs with manual settings added. In the second half this plays behind a Hybrid Basic synth with manual settings and a few effects added, which plays a midi melody of mine, and which is only slightly less simple than the chords used for the pads. Whatever, I think it turned out okay.

I can't remember why I called it Daddy's Little Girl: my son thinks it's a creepy title, but that I saved it with this image.

Hi Richard.....
The track seems pretty perfect to me, especially since you gave the details of how you put this together.

The picture sets off the tune very well.

Take care.

Synthia
Hi Richard. Interesting, satisfying track the deftly explores a range of synth sounds. Daddy's little girl isn't called Synthia is she? :-) Thanks for the posting, Peter.

Very
cool Richard. Real nice piece downtempo vibe. Build up to the first break is choice. Like the change. Nice melody.

Why is the title creepy?

Tres trippy!
Very interesting experiment. It did work out OK. More than OK. I ought to look into the AUs, it sounds like if they sound this cool.

Soothing
is the word .. loved the introduction of the synth wash in the opening .. worked well with the bass line. The jolly (alost xmassey) melody/voice from 02:00 was unexpected but also very pleasant on the ears. Mix was well balanced too. Enjoyed.

...
great song... nice changes... In a song like this it has a lot to do with ambience, which I got, but on my speakers I wished it was a little more in my face with the bass, my sub hardly had to work at all. I'm a bass-nut tho, so take that with a grain of salt.

How do you get the
stereo panning from speaker to speaker? TELL ME
or I will sendcount Fingers to sit at the end of your bed and mutter all through the night!!80)

Seriously. Well enjoyed this,partly cos it was not what I was expecting given the title and the artwork an unexpected but much welcomed little gem.


A nice combination of tones and pads over a staccato bass....great stuff.

Chris.....

P.S the "second half" from about two tennish has a bit of a seasonal feel to it...an almost bell like quality to the sound of the synth.

Okay.
I like it because it has the coolness and freshness of a breeze that whips past you unexpectedly and leaves you feeling as if the universe brushed your cheek to say hello. Thanks, Richard.
