One Hour [one hour challenge]



 Genre: Techno

Get Flash to see this player.

It took just over one hour, after I'd imported the bounced GB track into Logic to master. The mastering took ten minutes! I used one of those awful Magic GarageBand things to start this. Changed the drums, chopped it up a bit and added a couple of FX on some of the tracks. The tune itself took an hour to construct. It's really awful, but I'm actually quite intrigued by the idea of a Country/Techo fusion, so I thought I'd have a go. I also think this sort of challenge is a lot of fun! I may do something proper one of these days.

Listen if you must. Apologies if you do. ;-)

Nice one Dave :-)

One hour? It takes me that long to tune my guitar.

An entertaining little exercise.

I have an hour but no ideas :-(

Hi Dave....
The mix almost makes me want to listen to some Country and Western music, but not quite......

The work you have put into this has paid off. It fits together in a way I may have previously put money on that it wouldn't. Shows what I know, or that I shouldn't bet any more than I do already (which is nil).

An hour very well spent.

Take care.

Apology accepted
Country is perfect for the 1-hour challenge. You could write a whole C&W album in a couple of days. Techno/country hahaha, yes, you get points for pulling it off. Yeee-bloody-haaww. It's actually quite clever --- push that envelope!

Cool mix of beats. Interesting contrast between banjo and electronic interments, really melds the country and techno together.

I loved it...
...one of the niftiest instrumentals I've heard lately. I enjoyed how you lifted the "lid" on your mix at certain points and I think that was just part of what I found so appealing about this Dave, it's so buoyant and upbeat too. And yes, beware of any audio tool with the word "Magic" in front of it, but it turned out great for you. Thanks for sharing this!

One hour
Bounces along in good country style, but you've added interest with the extra sounds. An hour well spent!

One Hour
The boys at the Steer horn bar would be tapping their toes (and probably spitting... :-)). Enjoyable mashup, Dave. Where the city meets the country... Thanks, Peter.
