Hand­ing over to GDC…

With the ba­sic loop built, it was time for GDC to get in­volved. “We did an­other ses­sion all to­gether when Toby came in with Luke –the key­board player from GDC, amongst other bands – to add some gui­tar and keys,” re­calls Brad. “We added a pi­ano, recorded us­ing Luke’s Nord Stage 2, with re­verb from the Nord DI’d into the in­ter­face. Re­ally sim­ple. Then a bub­ble, which was a Nord Lead.”

“The in­ten­tion was to have the pro­grammed drums nice and tight, with the feel that you get when you have loops go­ing,” adds Toby, “but then to get the live ef­fect of some­one play­ing over it a bit more freely. Be­tween those two things you kind of get this ‘push and pull’, which is re­ally ef­fec­tive.”

“Then Toby did some gui­tar, a gui­tar skank,” Brad con­tin­ues. “It’s got the UAD Gal­axy Tape Echo on it, through a spring re­verb. Then there’s the Twang Re­verb, just very sub­tly set up in Gui­tar Rig.”
