Original Samples

Just a small synth part.


Used ManoloCamp's smooth and hypnotic "synth 1" stem as the backbone of the track, and the bass stem. Then copied parts of the stem and added as an additional layer, with bits of Flange and echo effects thrown in.

I didn't plan to add in vocal stems, but thought I'd give it a shot. Found Loveshadow's, KCentric's and Anomaly_Jonez's stems from the A Cappellas browser (in that order). Listened to the first 30secs of each stem as I played my backing track. Decided they sounded like they would fit. Imported them in, made several alignment changes.
