"Stunt Driver"

This track was my seventh track released on YouTube.

The idea to this track was to make one of those epic adrenalin pumping songs, that you get in the movies or in those flashy videos. It's based on what I'd imagine to be hearing, when watching someone skydive or drive ludicrously fast.

It's ridiculous how fast this track came together. I just finished "Lullaby" when I thought about this project. I used my own bass guitar patch again, started with the bass doodle and worked from there. The doodle uses pitch bending to give it that odd wobble. Also the first note is emphasized with a bass kick for some extra punch.

Some techniques learned in my previous projects were also incorporated in this one. Once more you can hear the frequency shift effect in this song, reminiscent of the wah-wah pedal effect that guitarist use. It gives the guitar a very distinctive sound, also heard in live performances. The guitar I used, again is the standard reason electric guitar. That simple patch almost has limitless potential. The sound also leans heavily on pitch bending to give the song more vibrance. 

I also tried out some new stuff. I tried a dead drop/fade in @ 2m19, where the sound just stops a seconds and kicks back in for two for dramatic effect. In the bit after that I tried to emulate that 'wuggadugga' sound you hear going around in guitar land. I did my attempt on some shredding @ 1m18 as well. This time it's heavy on the frequency and pitch shifting for extra effect.

Available on the album 'No Strings Attached'.

Here's the inspiration for the frequency shift effect I use. It's more or less the same as the Wah-Wah pedal effect that guitarist use.
