Denso Kvar - Styrmogenized (A Chicago Word Brigade & Styrmonix Mindmeld) by Styrmonix published on 2014/03/09 21:44:41 +0000 When I first heard Denso Kvar I loved how super funky it sounded so I asked Mr. Word-Bridage ("Chic" to his friends) if he'd be ok with me adding some trumpet to the mix. He gave his thumbs up so this is the result. Special thanks to Chicago Word Brigade! https://soundcloud.com/chicago_word_brigade Go listen to his stuff. Now. =^] I used two different mutes on the trumpet. The brighter parts with less bass to them are with the Brusio mute, a wooden harmon mute. The darker parts that sound more "woolly" are with the Soulo mute. The original tracks of Denso Kvar were gently modified by taking the original mix and doing three passes through analogue gear. Then there was some minor tweaks of the mix done with Melodyne of a couple of notes, adjusting their level in the mix and lowering their formants. As well, I harmonized the last 15 seconds. Melodyne was also used on the trumpet parts to gently massage some witchy pitches and blempo tempos. =^] This track is downloadable too. It is a 24bit wav file so it is pretty big. I've stopped mixing down to 16bit as most players (for sure iTunes and Quicktime) can handle 24bit wav.
