Australian whiz kid Walden is offering a special look at one of his FL Studio sessions on Splice! Since his debut “Brightness” EP, Walden has been on a production tear. His latest release, “Airodime,” balances a groovy and melodic feel around an array of detailed FX. Walden tells us about his “Airodime” session:
“Airodime is a special record for me because it is the first mixdown and master that I have done that I am truly 100% happy with and proud of. I used a combination of Waves and Fabfilter plugins for compression/fx, as well as the Korg M1, Native Instruments Kontakt, FM8, FL’s Harmor/Harmless and ReFX Nexus for the majority of my synth lines. I also made some use of FL’s multiband compressor and sound colorer, Maximus!The project is a little bit messy here and there as I am not the most organized of producers, but I think the file is a good representation of how I work in FL and what a finished and properly mixed down (and mostly stemmed out) record looks like for me. My master processing is not included in the project as I prefer to mixdown without compression and FX on the master. All mastering is done in a separate project file! Hope you guys find this project useful.”
Be sure to check out the interaction between KICKDRUM MAIN (Track 5) and KontattPIANO_Verbed (Track 10) which, through great sound design, makes it sound like the piano is side-chained to the kick. We also really liked the sound design on Subline Base (track 34) and Harmor Line (track 58)! Which are your favorite sounds? Start exploring the project!
