    Cleaning up some directories, I found an abundance of un-used, lo-fi drones and distorted inharmonic pads. Picked a few of the strongest, re-eq'd them, and normalized them all to -24db. Plenty of versatility in these like puzzle pieces to fit into the mix (or just properly make bad mix decisions which is fun too).

    Probably would help if I had put a method of previewing what's in the zip file ahead of time:

    Hey
    really cool tune,i love the little glitches in the beat.
    im not sure what DAW you use but have you ever tried time-stretching sounds to get atmospheres. you can get some relay interesting drawn out drones from simple sounds.
    it is especially easy to do in ableton.

    Cheers Ben, I think you clicked my signature. Sorry about the link confusion. :oops: Some of the drones I tossed up are using time-stretching to get a bit more complexity/movement in the higher range usually followed by convolution with noise to tame the artifacts. :)
