The long awaited and long worked on Drum Machine Compilation is here! I've got a track on this one called "Strange Weather", which was written using an Atari POKEY chip with all four channels in noise mode.
From the original compilation brief by Kezziebeat:
"Due to a song I created just a couple of days ago, I became inspired to start this compo. I want to make a compilation of songs using only kick drums and noise. Yes, only drums. No leads, no melodies, no arps (even slutty ones). I want to see what people can create when they only have a beat to work with.
• You can use any hardware or software
• No leads. (I will allow a bassline if people really find it hard)
• Must use the noise channel
• Must use kick drums
• You are allowed to use samples"
