Thursday 29th January 2009

Jack's Back is a Future Loss song that began life as a two minute sprint to the finish line, but then quickly ate itself in favour of becoming something more progressive. The rhythm guitar is now virtually absent, Brian has added lots of feedback and stickle-brick beats make an appearance during the ambient mid-section.

Using the close mic feeds from certain drums on the live kit, Logic was able to map a MIDI sequence that mirrored Stuart's playing exactly. I then used this information to trigger a series of Ultrabeat drum samplers, keeping the original timing while at the same time introducing electronic sounds to the mix.
