"Three Note Bass"


"Three Note Bass" [mp3 removed -- tune is now on Bandcamp]

This piece rings some changes -- at a fairly basic compositional level -- with the above filter module. A low-fi sample plays through the filter at three different settings, all with gain cranked up in the clipping level, which causes pleasing distortion. The settings are, frequency knob at 2:00, frequency knob almost all the way open, and frequency knob at 2:00 with resonance cranked (causing that eerie whine).
There is a gratuitous dubstep interlude to make one appreciate the bass variations, then back to those variations, then fin. Played and arranged in the Octatrack sequencer; monaural recording mixed down to a stereo file.
