Weekly Thing #33: Eight Bits
I really geeked out this week. I was playing around with a phaser effect on the Rhodes keyboard, and I found a way to change the pitch in steps rather than in a smooth arc. I then locked the steps to the tempo of the song and voila! “Weird sounding Rhodes.” The rest of the song is almost insultingly simple. I used a Jupiter synth patch and simulated Mellotron flutes (yes, the same ones from Strawberry Fields Forever.) with a basic drum pattern. I call it “Eight Bits,” since it reminds me of an old video game. I hope you like it!
