This was an exercise in using Ultrabeat. Along with a Nu School Breaks Kit is a Grind Bass and Funk Organ.
This slow techno/R&B track begins with A phrygian chord and is tonally centered on Dmin Aeolian. I was playing around with the new Logic Pro 8 Template Chooser and used the basic electronic template as my palette. I quickly came up with a simple descending synth hook that I liked. I’m also playing around with a vocal melody that’s not in the mix yet.
I started this just over a week ago but have been too busy to spend much time writing or recording. Lame.
