Hi all! long time frequenter to the website, first time posting in forums.
I'm working on a project atm, kind of punk/ska novelty act called xJiMMYCOREKiLLx (british users may or may not remember Jimmy Corkhill, an amusing comic relief character from scouse soap opera Brookside). We're writing music from the perspective of Jimmy Corkhill and just trying to have a bit of fun.
This track I'm working on follows the premise that Jimmy goes on a caravan holiday to Talacre, Wales with his partner, Jackie. After mixing up his anti-depressant pills with psychoactive narcotics, he visits the local video game arcade then subsequently finds himself being sucked into the arcade machines.
There are no vocals, yet, but there are plenty of 8bit arp melodies etc...
I'm using Basic64 plug in for the 8bit stuff atm, I'd love a critique of those parts in particular, and maybe if anyone can recommend other lovely 8bit VST plugins, that would be great.
The track is called "2.0 Weeks in Talacre". Here's the current mix:
and also our soundcloud page, it's really silly:
HELLO AGAIN ALL!!!
