June 1: Gated bells

Hey ho, let’s go. It’s good to finish something every day. I’ll try to keep up the routine. Today’s experiment concerns using a gate sidechained to something else. A few years back I listened to the UK act Bicep and their song Glue attracted my interested. I felt pretty good about myself when I figured out on my own that they were using a gate.

Today I resampled a bell sound, or rather a bell melody, in the spirit of Jon Hopkins – mangling and destroying it with extreme delay settings, some Soundtoys filter plugin and what not. I should have sidechained my gate to something more funky than a straight four-to-the-floor beat. Next time.
