Downtime Plug-in Capture

Downtime is released today and it’s the first in a new collection of instrumentals, inspired by some of my favourite artists like Herbie Hancock, Wally Badarou, Urbanator and many more.

This is a fun little project that I can create entirely ‘in-the-box’ and to show how in-the-box it is, the video is made up of a lot of the plug-ins used in creating this piece. Here’s a list of all tracks in my DAW, plus I had SSL Native Bus Compressor, XLN Audio RC20 Retro Color, UJAM Retro Finisher, iZotope Audiolens, iZotope Ozone Elements, iZotope Ozone Vintage Limiter and the Logic EQ and Compressor on my Bus.

This is my take on Jazz-Fusion and it very much sticks to a jazz format, with the main melody at beginning and end and a couple of lead sections in the middle. Looking forward to playing this with a band, or hearing another band play it in their set!

The artwork was generated by AI in Canva and the video created using HitFilm Express.

It’s available from today on my Bandcamp store and from 23rd February 2024 on all other stores and streaming sites.

The great thing about modern kit is that you can easily put a mini version of your recording studio into your shoulder bag and work anywhere. This was composed while on a rececnt break to Toronto, where I picked up a mini controller keyboard to finish the job. Thanks to Long & McQuade for getting me set up!

Highly recommend their shop, best selection of synths I’ve seen under one roof – Sequential, Moog and Oberheim all in one spot.

New release – this week a very Summery, laid-back Lo-Fi vibe (just as we’re going into Autumn!). As always, it can be found on playlists on YouTube and Spotify, plus you can download from my Bandcamp store. It’s the halfway point in the first Lo-Fi album, hopefully plenty more to come as these tracks have been fun to put together 🙂
