I don’t just program most of the parts in my songs. The most programming I do is the drums, which is nothing but plotting samples and then drenching them in either overdrive, flanger, delay or all of the above. Pipeline I did do more programming than usual. Mostly on the slide parts as it was just the only way I was happy with them. They were fun to do live while doing the other parts, and that’s how the song came to be. I had been working day and night on a couple of particular songs and not really getting anywhere. I wanted to do something kind of fun and a bit more upbeat, change it up. And it was fun. I stood at my desk doing it over and over and over, but never really got frustrated, and it paid off.
All the songs for Endless Summer are pretty much done as far as recording go. 10 tracks if I don’t add any more but I think I got everything set, I’m just finishing mixing it. I might switch to Ableton to master some of it, as it just isn’t working out in Sonar for a couple. Two other I may do a different vocal take but that’s it. I may post another song tomorrow, but that will be it for a while. I have another set of songs in the works as well, and anything else going to Soundcloud will be from those, or other one offs I do in the mean time. I’m shooting for end of July, early August to have the full album on Bandcamp
