///////High On Life\\\\\\\\ - by Virt/Symmetrix - The fourth tracked tune by Jacob Kaufman (Virt) Hi all, thanks for taking the time to read about this piece. Here I was, all ready to move on from demostyle work to explore other tracking avenues, and whaddya know, inspiration struck. I decided to break from the traditional all-synth backing found in many demotunes, and add in a piano as the main accompaniment. Doing so required me to sample in my QS7's phase-accurate grand with the utmost care, to avoid the typically wretched piano sounds in modules. The lead, in my opinion, is my best yet, with the high degree of unpredictability which has become my trademark in tracking leads. Additionally, I experimented with a shuffled/straight rhythm pattern which I learned from one of the masters, WAVE. (The drumbeat in the slower parts began as a Sublime-esque reggae beat, which I force-fed to my friends in #trax - they did the online equivalent of "smile and nod." I hope this makes up for my eagerness the other night. ;) Much thanks to all listed in the instrument greets-text, and I hope to chat with you all soon. -Virt
