I find myself obsessing over at least one (often old and/or obscure) song a day. I like to analyze them, break them down into their individual
elements and, if I have time, recreate one or more of the parts. So if anyone is interested, here's a peek into the inner workings of my musical mind.
Feel free to add your own, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
B-Real & Dr. Dre - The Puppet Master
Cool song, cool video. At the moment, I'm obsessing over the piano riff, which by itself is upbeat and jazzy, but when combined with the other
elements, it sounds menacing. Good stuff.

I have Operator which I think is an FM synth, I bought it yesterday for Ableton, not really given it much time yet, it's quite an unusual synth, Need
to have a go on it later.
I have been using a piece of software called melodyne to take tracks to pieces and seperate their individual tracks.
Its an amzing bit of software, you play in the audio and it gives you a polyphonic read out of all the parts.
Operator should work just fine. In fact, if memory serves, there's a tutorial in Ableton for Operator that shows you how to make a similar sounding
bass line. It might not be the exact same sound, but it will point you in the right direction.
And yes, Melodyne is awesome in so many ways it's mind blowing. It puts AutoTune and similar programs to absolute shame.
