ollie, what we were

00:0007:03

So, in light of recent events, I thought I'd be transparent as to how this track came together. (On this end) there seems to be a lot of samples listed that I havent used, but, for those I did use, around half of the samples are oneshots for percussion; the majority of the other samples are recordings that I've taken on my phone of miscellaneous stuff (scraping bricks together, a small crowd, birds chirping, flapping my phone case about etc etc), all sourced from myself over the last year or so. Just to be clear, there are two samples in this that I made in the daw Logic while I had some free time at college; ive processed them a fair bit here in AT though, for clarity, these bits of audio can be heard at 0:08 (kinda sounds like a mosquito), 0:12 , 0:14 (mosquito again), 0:21 and 0:29 (sounds like an alien animal laughing). Much love, hope you enjoy! <3

    Sorry to break your nice even 256 faves.

    I don't know how i missed this. Is it just me or are the highs a little loud?

      Yeah they are too loud, I made this pre-sample ban though so I can't get back into it

    This is too much for my ears! haha, I noticed how u make each song have more high a mid. Cos audiotool does make songs sound muddy as I can hear through most of my tracks. Good work, always a pleasure to listen!

      I totally get what youre saying man, some of the 'essential' samples have gone, i.e piano, wider range of percussion etc but its fun to make everything from scratch, its all part of the process and in the long run it'll enhance your creativity both in and out of AT! :)

      yeah, I see man! I haven't really looked at audiotool next to much. it's beyond me now. I can't really make music on here how I used to because I've gotta start making up some new stuff from nothing.

    Ollie's tracks bring me back to the golden age of Electronic music.

    Not the pop stuff you hear on the radios nowadays.
