— How did you manipulate the recordings?
— For creating the drums I used large amounts of drive/saturation-tools, pitch shifting, resampling, and shaping using ADSR in Ableton live´s simpler. There is also some delays automated in and out on the percussion parts On the album in general i´ve been using a lot of granular synthesis-based plug-ins, like GRM-tools etc. But for this particular track it's less of that. There is a fairly large amount of wet/dry-automation of big reverbs on the ambient piano sounds. Logically enough it's also a lot of heavy filtering and EQ work on the piano-samples. I have also used a lot of volume and filter automation to create different dynamics, fade ins, fade outs etc. For example I've automated the cutoff frequency on the kick and on the ambient soundscape parts.
