Get Lucky Twice

Daft Punk's latest single Get Lucky is playing everywhere. I heard it three times yesterday, including once on an Alt Rock station. Nile Rodgers' bassline on that track steals the show! Here are a couple of videos from this week that feature remixes of the song.

I don't usually post Gameboy stuff here, but let's face it; LSDJ was one of the original music apps. Here is Get Lucky 8-bit edition on an original Gameboy(DMG-01) by maudiojohn. This sounds so good it makes me want to dust off my old Gameboy!

DJ Raul Alonso remixed Get Lucky in Traktor DJ for iPhone. This video is also pretty instructive. He is using Display Recorder, so you get to see all the subtle tweaks he's doing. The subtle art of subtlety is important in DJing!

Songwriting Example with Loopy

With one of the best YouTube names I've seen, TreesAreChill demonstrates his songwriting process in Loopy and Audiobus.

I only used my iPhone to make these sounds. I don't really prefer the way amp modeling sounds on the iPhone, but it is a really fast and convenient way to experiment with song ideas and layers.

Apps used in this video: iRig, Audiobus, Loopy and Amplitube. I recorded the sound into Logic Studio. I used the iRig to input my guitar sounds into my iPhone. I used a splitter on the output of my iRig. One output went into my line-in port on my Mac which was being recorded by Logic. The second output on the splitter I used to monitor the sound. If you monitor the sound from your Mac then you will notice audio lag, so I recommend using a splitter and monitoring straight from the iRig output.
