OGM909: Alive Boy

“I use the Tracker to create drafts and put down ideas wherever I am.”

“Then I go to the studio, export stems, and complete the production of the sketch. But also, in some of my songs, I used the raw sounds coming directly from the Tracker, with almost no post-production, and just put a singer on it.

Totally love this machine, I always carry it with me, anywhere! I like that I need to force my workflow and hit the limits of the hardware and the only way to do it is thru creativity. I usually make music in Ableton, where really you have no limits.”

“The track I’m sharing with you is very simple, based mostly on samples. But I used some of the best features of the Tracker, which are beat slicing, wavetables, and obviously the step fx. I used a little bit of autofill, sometimes random (this is also a feature I love). It came out as a breakcore/IDM track, with a little bit of melody, glitchy breakbeats, and some noises here and there, because I love noise!”
