Working under a time constraint when producing music can be a great way to hone your workflow and build confidence in your creative decisions.
In the video above, we took this idea to the test by ‘speed running’ a boom bap track in under ten minutes.
We kicked off the challenge by using the Splice Beatmaker to record and perform a classic boom bap rhythm. From there, we loaded up Arutria’s Emulator II V to track some string stabs, and supported those with a sub bassline. Lastly, we topped off our beat with some samples we quickly auditioned using Splice Bridge, and gave the whole composition a vintage atmosphere with some gritty vinyl noise from XLN Audio’s RC-20 Retro Color. Throughout the whole process, the effects plugins from Arturia’s FX Collection 2 were indispensable in allowing us to mold our sounds on the fly.
