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.

Judas priest - Cheater


I like the rhythm on this one: it's got a bit of swing to it. And the guitar solo is just insane. The old school reverb on the vocals is cool, too.

Not bad, but I've never been a big Dre fan.

Check out this one...same Illuminati mish-mash of images and a damn fine track and cartoon.

This one still pops into my head quite often...



Roughly thirty years after the first time I listened to it, it still kicks me squarely in the ju ju bees.



Oh, and great thread idea Associate!!!!

One of BT's earliest songs:

KMFDM - A Drug Against War


Always great to hear someone voiding the warranty on their drum machine.

like you, i try and take tracks apart and recreate them, I've been trying to get a bass sound like this one, it should be pretty simple but can seem to get it

I'm pretty sure that's an FM synth making that bass.



Try the FM8 or a similar FM software synth (there's a few free VST's out there, as well). Thanks for the video and I hope that helps.

The Prodigy - Their Law (feat. pop will eat itself)


Just a good, menacing-yet-danceable track.

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.


Good luck with your music, dude!

Just a crazy, menacing song. The Misfits were way ahead of their time.
