Bragware Report: Hematoma

I've mentioned it on this blog and to a few of you privately, but I've been feeling stuck for a long time. I've created a few tracks in the last couple of years, but the ones I have created have either left me feeling a little cold or have been oddly similar to previous tracks, despite my best efforts to move into fresh territory.

Given my stagnation, it was a real pleasure to put together a new track this weekend, a "ambient dub" song I'm calling Hematoma.

Hematoma by Reason Patch A Day

As is usually the case with the tracks I create, nearly every sound you hear in the track comes from a patch that has been posted here on Reason Patch A Day. The only major exception are four drum samples I used from the free sample pack from the excellent Wave Alchemy - Tech House and Minimal sample kit. There are also a couple of patches that have not been posted here, but are available in the Reason Patch A Day Archive Refill.

Instrument Patches: 1 Up - Warp Gate, 1 Up - Computer, Alien Princess, Calm Alert, Clouds - Cumulus, Cough Tone (not posted here, but available in the PAD Refill), Croup, DB1 Squirt, Dizzying Echoes, Electro-Cowbell, Incognito, Little Wings, Lustral, Microscopic, Noise Pad, Orphan (look for a post soon!), Rubbed Raw 2 (not posted here, but available in the PAD Refill), Space Static 5, Stranga Sono, Surrender

Effect Patches: A Little Energy, Airport Music, Campfire, DB Murky Beats, DB Snare Box 2, Drone Chorus, Heft (Stereo), Interesting, Latent Period, Simple Bass Enhance, Simple Mastering, Simple Pad Enhance, Simple Smear, Soulful, Spacey, Stereo Delay, Sub Wide, Subtle Wide, Veiled

Remember, if you post a track using any of the patches found here, I want to hear about it. Please send me a message at patchaday (at) earthlink (dot) net and I'll post links to your music here on Reason Patch A Day.

Thanks a lot, 1.44MB! Listening to the song again yesterday, I think I still have a fair amount of work to do on it. There are some timing issues that need to be worked out and, as usual, my mastering could be improved. But, for a work in progress, I like what I have so far.

And, yes, a good looking waveform is my end goal. :)
